13th December

oops I missed the days in between ... I had a hugely busy week last week. One day in London, 2 very long days in the office, my Christmas meal with work (we went to the Ox and it was one of the best ever meals I have had in many a long time.. highly recommenced).. then I was cast off onto internetless world.... aka My Mums house.

I spent Friday and Saturday cleaning outside windows, cleaning inside, putting up decorations and taking Mum shopping and having coffee and Cranberry and Pecan Pie in a cafe .. scrumptious :-)

Thankfully today I have managed with the brilliant help of Teen to get our decorations done for the Festive season..... unfortunately I do feel like my back is about to 'go'... whether it was the high heels on Thursday or the stuff I had done at Mums (she has been told by the consultant that she should not lift anything heavy, so that was one of my jobs!) who knows.. anyway I am fingers crossed that a week in the office my right it (any one who has a dodgy disc will know what I speak of!!)

The Main Tree

The Angel Tree

Oh this is how the studio is looking in the conservatory now it is finished... a great place to work



******************************************************
So Advent day 13

The pick of the last few days are these gems.. the first is 'Awkward Family Photos'.
I would love you spend some time trawling this site.. I spent almost an hour going back in the archives and laughing way out loud.. a brilliant idea .. in fact I think I have photos that I coukld add on there ;-)


Secondly is this fab website 'men who look like old lesbians' .. I tell you if you are a bloke you should hope you don't end up on here lol

The You Tube clip could have come from the 70s but scarily it may not have been back in the day from some of our European cousins






The game today is this .. I have got up to 580 ....where as at the time of delivery of the game from CKX he had got 488.. so I am well chuffed.. [health warning it is addictive ]

And the joke for today is....

I phoned the local builders today, I said to them 'Can I have a skip outside my house?'

He said, 'I'm not stopping you!'

Love your blog! I very nearly called mine Teen of the 60's but thought better of it. That Cranberry and Pecan pie sounds delicious!
Love the tree and don't you just love those builders! Joke a minute aren't they?

I'm sure, if you tried very hard, you could get some more 'stuff' on your main Christmas tree ..... it isn't quite bowing over enough - tee hee.

Checked in mirror and I don't look like an old lesbian and I've destroyed all incriminating photographs ...... blimey, you're keeping me very busy this morning ....

Hi Technogran and thank you so much for popping by. I have just nipped over to your place. Love the look of your blog.. love the text you have chosen too. You may describe yourself has having a boring life but you are one busy lady.
I must say the Cranberry and Pecan Pie (well actually it was a cake ... goodness knows why I said pie lol)

Take care and have a great Christmas :-)

Hee hee DP yes it does look like it is about to topple but it is just a wonky star on the top.... anyway I don't go for those themed trees it is my memory tree... stacked with stuff Teen and I have collected over the years[oh some from others bought abroad ... yes the Bon Natale thing is on there.. the flash of blue bottom left it!!]

I did actually think of you with that website ... I have no idea why as you have a beard???? lol

70steen said...

sorry DP I had to delete the anonymous comment ... I don't have such behaviour on my blog ;-)

Claire said...

Ohh I want a studio place in a conservatory! Looks great :)

70steen said...

Hi Claire Thanks hun... I love it .. plus I have my dining room table back :-)

fracas said...

Sure... delete the anonymous comment so now it'll keep me awake wondering what it was!

You're such fun sis - men who look like old lesbians... lol. That site has a link to another blog called people I no longer talk to. LOL, love it when folks come up with such wacky ideas.

Sorry about your back. I'm sure somehow it's DaddyP's fault. He should send you a masseuse as a Christmas gift... since we all know he's just the biggest and best holiday-supporting bloke out there.

1. I thought the squirrels were 'naughtying', until you mentioned disk...have one myself, upset you burst my virtual bubble...I was enjoying the squirrels. (Am now as well, just not admitting it.)

2. I FAILed at the game, my son's fault...he was peering too close. Good physics formulas in that one!

I must take a look at the linked site to the men who look like old lesbians ... it did make me chuckle...

Oooo do you think DP will send a strapping 6ft Adonis up for me for Xmas ??... yummmeee [you know where his credit cards are stashed... you could arrange it as we know how busy he is;-)]

70steen said...

JC :-) .... ooo you have a naughty mine young man... it is a gif image that just won't work on the side bar ...

I love that game ... physics formulas?? Well that would have never crossed my mind through the expletives that passed my lips in a mummer as the tower toppled over ... ;-)
