Thanks to everyone who's been in contact. I'm ok, really. Sorry I haven't been around, but i've been mega busy and something had to go, and unfortunately it was the blog and my surf time :-(
We've had a few problems here; like the tiler deciding to walk off the job halfway through (Grrr..... W*nker!), the laminate estimate being waaaay higher than we'd anticipated forcing us to cast around, work going crazy; everything that could go wrong with the decorating doing so, like discovering a lovely hole in the kitchen ceiling when the electrician came, and a stain I just cannot paint over... and various other disasters on the domestic front.
On the plus side, Carl has now heard that there may be a settlement soon on the money he is owed - although I am STILL waiting for payment for magazine commissions done back in December and January.... to be paid for work published months ago is surely not too much to ask, is it?
Anyway - if all goes according to plan, we'll be jetting off to the Canaries Carnival in a few days....Mind you - I haven't packed a thing yet, so I don't know if any cases will be going with us... Carlos said if the worst comes to the worst, we'll just have to slob around in our Pirate Outfits all week... now there's a thought eh? :-)
So, i'll leave you now with a pic of the little tyke we'll be visitng next week... and remember - when life throws you lemons..... make lemonade... ;-)
