Once again far too long between posts. Ooops. Not had a lot to write really, at least not a lot that wouldn’t be totally sad and sound rather pathetic. I mean, I could have filled posts and posts about World of Warcraft and all the slaying we’ve been doing, but that would be bad, right?
Gertrude (lvl 57 dwarf paladin) and Trago (lvl 18 night elf druid) have been busy adventuring in the land of Eredar. Gertrude has even ventured into Black Rock Deep this past weekend and together with Dumasdurt and an intrepid band of hardy guild mates has fought off both the flamey Incendius and stolen the Heart of the Mountain from the Dark Iron Vaults.
Trago meanwhile has been steadily learning new skills and is on his way to becoming a master blacksmith and miner. He also underwent great tests of endurance to gain two shapeshift abilities. When desired he can now meld into the being of a vicious bear, or slink and dart beneath the waters in fish form.
But in the real world Kay has not been up to much at all really and is rather kicking herself about this. Especially with another birthday looming up with great pace I’m wondering what on Earth I’m doing and what happened to the eager, inquisitive and bright young girl who left school over ten years ago with the world supposedly at her feet.
We did have a lovely day out a couple of weeks ago when Bill and I drove down to see his parents in Milledgeville. March 6th was Mothering Sunday so we had presents and thanks for being a great Mom to deliver. (Americans, panic ye not, for the Mother’s Day you celebrate is yet to come). Hopefully Mom will have found somewhere nice to hang the bird feeder we gave her so that the birds will be happy and she can watch them come to scarf berries and nuts. I hope she gets as much of a kick out of that as I do! I loved watching the different varieties of bird come to feed on our porch last year.
I wish I could have gone to see my Mum and give her a big hug and thanks too, but unfortunately we had to settle for sending a bouquet of flowers. However, I do get to see both Mum and Dad in just over a week so they’ll get enough hugs then to make up for the past year. I’m very excited.
But also very stressed that our house is in practically the same state it was the last time they were here, if not worse thanks to my attack on the bathroom when I thought I had the energy to do something about it, but before the whole prospect of redoing that room became too daunting. Aargh.
The kitchen is still a pit and at night I hate to cook because I can’t see what I’m doing. Not looking forward to catering for four in there, barely have enough space to sort us out in there. Bah humbug. We were hoping that Bill would get a Christmas bonus so we could deal with some of that, but no such luck. Rats.
Still, having Mum and Dad here will be great! Yeah! *bounce*
Had a great call from Nicky last night when I was feeling very homesick and missing friends. Yay for Nicky! Also, just gave Matt a call and had a nice long chat and a gossip. Am very glad he’s doing okay and seems a lot more settled in Worthing. Lots of fun things to do around that neck of the woods! Oh, and was really surprised to get an email from Hols this week too..and she remembered it’s my birthday at the weekend! Hadn’t heard from her for ages so it was great to have that contact.
Otherwise although I’m at home today, I’ve been trying to be good and go into work with Bill most days. I’ve been busy working on a Flash portfolio site for a friend and ex-colleague of Bill’s. Almost done with that and I think it’s coming along rather well. In fact, I just had an idea for a possible splash animation…better get on with it then.
Oh, one more thing…I’m very proud of all the flowers in the front yard at the moment. All the daffodils, crocuses and anemones we planted last year are blooming, and they look great! I think I want even more daffs next year though, then it’ll be just like the banks up Chollacott Lane!
