I went outside and…
Here in blighty the roof has come off the lean-to and I risked life and limb to put some washing out, only to get my hair caught in a shirt button. The shirt was flapping wildly in the wind, took 5 minutes to catch it again and unravel my hair. If only someone had had a video camera handy, could have made submitted it to You’ve Been Framed and won £250 to fix the roof. Deep, dramatic sigh.
New tagline coming up: not safe to let this woman out unaccompanied.

Himself is taking me out on the town tonight, a rare foray to the cinema (The Last King of Scotland, can’t wait to see the brilliant Forest Whitaker in a meaty role at long last), followed by supper at a steak house.
No time then to muse on the fact that the newly discovered to fit underwired bra (lacy and lilac, thankyewverymuch) I’m wearing is so well boned it makes a perfect settling spot for a mug of tea when cwtched up on the sofa.
Nor to kick myself for using the last of my PayPal funds to register a domain that has wonderful subdomain possibilities (like ma.gnolia or del.icio.us). Except that it was 3 a.m. and I registered the wrong bloody one. Pffft. Still, the More Words website came in handy for checking words ending in [insert variable here]. I am such a twpin sometimes.
Coming up: “Daisy’s weight loss secrets” and “The pros and cons of losing weight”.

Not only did I burn my finger while taking the fish out of the oven (there’s a large hole in the oven glove and yes, I managed to find it) but after running the finger under the cold water tap I turned to chop the salad tomatoes and… sliced through the blister.
Ouch doesn’t begin to describe it.

Living in blissful sin for the past 13 years.
3. Ever have a near-death experience?
Yes. And an out of body one too.

It’s a long story but I’ve been having the devil’s own problem trying to use Thunderbird to download emails from chasingdaisy.com (it’s an add-on domain rather than being the main domain, don’t ask) and I just finally gave in and started using Outlook Express. Which works! But after deleting shedloads of spam I discovered a lovely email from The Murphmeister and three wonderful festive banners that should have been in the competition. Dammit. Dammit. Dammit. Want to see the bruises where I’ve been kicking myself repeatedly?
So here are the banners from Murph and Oz:
I’m so sorry guys!

Is it too soon to have another competition? Oh, I don’t think so…!
