Note to Self......

......I must post more! Sorry, yet again, for the long absence. I've been battling things like sore throats and colds. I think my body is trying to tell me to slow down, which I am now beginning to take notice of. For the first time in a long time, I'm starting to feel comfortable being by myself, so being in the house doesn't feel so awful anymore. To this end I've decided to take things easy and I'm beginning to feel much better, both mentally and physically

Well a lovely thing happened at the weekend - look what I got from the 'Sweetie Across The Sea', otherwise known as Ann


Isn't it great?! It is currently residing on my bedside table, so I can look at cheery smiley Bumble Bee when I'm feeling down, which is usually first thing in the morning. The card is sooo cuuuute! I think you can make it out in the picture, but there's a sweetie little dog curled up and underneath the words 'Ruff Day?' Bless you Ann, you're a gem! xx The card sits with the cards that Lynn sent me, when she sent over that luvvverly body wash and moisture creme.

I've started to watch DVDs again, which for some reason I couldn't for quite a while (I think it was maybe because I used to watch them with Husband). I went out and bought 'Pride & Prejudice' - it was only a fiver in HMV! I had to get it. Talking of Bronte novels being brought to the silver screen, I was absolutely riveted to the new adaptation of 'Jane Eyre' that the BBC produced. It was in four parts and finished a couple of weeks ago. Now Sundays are totally bereft of something to look forward to. An English actor by the name of Toby Stephens played the wonderfully moody Mr Rochester. Toby played the baddie Gustav Graves in the 007 movie 'Die Another Day' and is Dame Maggie Smith's younger son. He just totally floats my boat and blows Matthew MacFadyen out of the water! Check out http://www.bbc.co.uk/drama/janeeyre/- it's well worth a look!

Update on 'Rose Trio' - I've done some more, but I've seriously neglected my poor stitching. I'll be making up for it by doing some over the weekend and posting some more photos of it so you can see. It's nearly finished, then on to 'The Phoenix' which I can't wait to stitch!

That's all for now - and I promise I won't leave my next posting too long! Thanks for dropping by - and thanks for your patience. Big Hugs! xx

There you are, Heidi! I'm delighted with your post! I will go and check this Jane Eyre thing just after this comment. I finished "The Eyre Affair" by Jasper Fforde lately so I'm quite interested. I read the original novel when I was eleven, so I have poor memories of it... I also have "Crime and Prejudice" and I will soon watch it. Itchy...
Lots of hugs!

What a fun treat to get in the mail, the little bumble bee made me smile too. Watching Pride and Prejudice is on my to do list, a friend of mine just finished watching a version made into a mini-series (I think it was the BBC version) and she said it was great.
