Hmmmmm ...

Hmmmmmm .... that's what's going through my head at the moment .... hmmmmm. One big blank, really. A bit of blogger burn-out, perhaps ?!?!?!

I have been really busy, doing this, that, and the other. I have been trying to fit in all sorts of stuff, and not really completing anything. I haven't been interested in my web design stuff, which I was so gung-ho about recently. Even my blogging has suffered.

I have, however, completed a newsletter for a friend (I help out on the committee of the Australian Multiple Births Association Victorian Branch - AMBA - and put together their newsletter each month. It's called Multiple Mirths.). I sort of volunteered to help out, after their regular Newsletter Editor resigned. I like doing this sort of stuff. I don't need to attend the meetings (I'm not the parent of multiples, so what is discussed at the meetings wouldn't really be relevant to my world, anyway.), and most of the stuff needed to be put in the newsletter is emailed to me. Everything else I source, and make up myself. Quite easy, really.

I had my parents over for dinner last night ... the meal was a disaster, don't know what went wrong (one thing had too much salt, the other not enough) ... the company was great, food was yuck !! Luckily we had dessert and biscuits ... that filled up the empty hole left by a dud meal !!

After doing the grocery shopping this morning, I went over to the local Retirement Village this afternoon, to do some (never ending!!) typing for an elderly friend, who is trying to complete a book to have it published. I feel like this has gone on for years (well, it has, actually!!), and we are going over, and over the same stuff. She keeps changing formats, potential publishers want things done differently, she adds bits, takes bits out ... I could just about repeat the whole book word for word, I have gone through it with her soooo many times. I think we are on the home stretch now, though.

Tomorrow morning I am going over to my Aunt's place, to give her some computer tips, and to check over the computer she has been given, to see if I can make it more user-friendly (perhaps). After that I may just come home and sit !!! A bit of mind-numbing television, perhaps ?!? Who knows.

Then it's the weekend ... yippee !! It is Hubby's birthday over the weekend, and we are having visitors on Sunday afternoon. Should be a great day. Need to make a couple of cakes, and organise drinks and nibblies, but that's not too hard.

Well, there you go. That's my not so very exciting post for today. My apologies for coming across somewhat flat. I'm sure I'll be back to my usual cheery self before long. Maybe it's just something to do with the weather, although the days have been lovely (but rather cold).

Take care everyone, and enjoy the remainder of your week.

Bye for now,

MEOW

My post last night said something like:

"Tired - we're okay - talk to you tomorrow."

Now that's flat.

seems that for someone who had nothing to write about you put quite a few words out!

When is the next trip planned Meow, I think you need to be rejuvenatede and that's the best way I know.

Meow said...

Granny ... must be that time of the week !!!

DaybyDay ... yeah, I know ... I wrote more than I do sometimes !! I'll pass on your birthday wishes, thanks.

Peter ... I was thinking the same thing. Maybe going to the camping show last weekend got the taste buds going, then quickly coming back to reality, is the problem !!

Take care, friends. have a great Friday ... Meow

Take care of yourself. I am sure you will be feeling better soon. I still think your blog is great even when you think it is flat!

Hugs,
