As you know, I've been having some problems with my Computer. It's an on going saga, but hopefully once Ben finishes University, he is taking it over to his friends to get it sorted again, hopefully once and for all. Or else I can see me lobbing the Bl***y thing, out the door. While all the data was being transferred to the external hard drive. I came across quite a few pictures and miniatures that I haven't shared with you. If you click on the pictures they will pop up bigger. These are some wonderful Miniature Wands that I purchased from Lorraine over at Dollhouse Mini's by Dfly Creations blog. Lorraine also has an Etsy Shop, where you can purchase her wonderful creations. At the moment she has some lovely Wand Box Stacks with a Wand. They would look amazing in a Miniature Ollivanders Wand Shop. The Skeleton wand, I purchased is amazing, considering just how tiny it is.
My eldest Son Ben and his Girlfriend Courtney attended the Aberystwyth University May Ball, a couple of weeks ago. Ben told me that there would be a Bungee there and that he intended to do a jump. Well me being his Mum, first thought that he was joking and then when he said he wasn't, asked him not to. I have a terrible fear of heights and the thought of him jumping from this crane, well it made me feel physically sick. Courtney, didn't want him to do it either and was crying even before he got the harness on, she was really frightened for him. She said when he did the jump, he looked like a Rag Doll hanging from the line. But give her, her due, she managed to take the pictures of him jumping. If you click on the pictures they will pop up bigger. That Blue Dot hanging on the end of that elastic, is my Boy... So glad I wasn't there, think I'd have been sick. Thankfully nothing went wrong and he said it was brilliant. Apparently Ben has a Bucket List, nineteen and has a bucket list, gawd knows what else is on there. Think its best he doesn't tell me. And there was me, thinking that Harry my youngest, was the Dare Devil....
Happy Anniversary Mick. We've been married Twenty Two years today. Time seems to have flown by, can't believe its gone so quickly.. Must admit, there are times when I could have strangled him and I'm sure the feeling is mutual. But we've weathered many a Storm together, got through some really bad times, supported each other and we are still smiling. So we must be doing something right. Not quite sure what, but something.. Happy Anniversary me Old Fruit..Luv ya. xxxx
I'd also like to wish our friends Natasha & Geoff a very Happy 12th Wedding Anniversary. Hope you have a wonderful day... Happy Birthday to our other friend Ruth, who's birthday also falls today and a Big Happy 40th Birthday to Mick's sister Joanne, who is 40 tomorrow and was also a Bridesmaid at our Wedding.. Hope you all have great time at the Party tomorrow...xxxx
On the other Home front still having problems with my computer, the documents and 22,000 photographs have been transferred to an external hard drive. Told you I love taking photographs. Just waiting for Ben to finish his exams next week at University, then he will be able to take my poorly computer, over to his friends to give it a proper going over. They think something is corrupted on the Hard Drive. I have no idea what they are talking about, so will leave it to those that do...I'm totally lost without a fully functioning computer, just shows how we rely on all this technology, especially out here in the sticks.
After much debate, since this little one has been born. Harry has finally decided to call him Draconius, Draco for short. If you click on the picture, it will pop up bigger.. I just clicked on the picture myself and clicked again to bring it up to full size, it would be a perfect screen saver picture. So if you'd like to use it as a screen saver on your own personnel computers, you are welcome to, but it is not to be used for commercial purposes.
Now that was a shock, in the nicest possible way. Tiger Lily has been bagged up for a few days and we've been expecting her to Foal at any time. But having checked on her, in the Barn last night at 12.30, before we went to bed, she was busy munching away on the Hay. So when we went down this morning to let the Ponies out, it was a shock to find this little one. Tiger Lily, had obviously given birth in the early hours of this morning, to a lovely Skewbald Coloured Colt, as yet he doesn't have a name. I also spent some time up in the field today, with my Camera and managed to get some video footage of the Foals which I'm sharing over on Hericus Blog, if you'd like to have a look. There are three very short videos., which I must say have taken forever to load onto YouTube. Enjoy...xxxx
Just thought I'd give everyone an update. Both the Foals are doing well and are having fun, running round in the lovely weather we've been having, up until today. It is currently tipping it down, which is good, as we need the rain to make the Grass & the Hay grow. The ground is rock hard.
Update on my computer! Well the external hard drive has arrived. Now everything needs to be transferred over onto that, before the hard drive on the PC gets messed around with. I'm totally paranoid, that I'm going to lose all my documents and photographs. I just hope everything can be transferred and that nothing gets lost. Ben, has very kindly lent me his lap top, so I am able to get on line, but he really needs this for University, so don't know how long I'll be on line for. With all that's been going on here. I've got hundreds of emails to go through as well, so if you've emailed me and I haven't answered please bear with me. Foals and Family are taking priority at the moment. Will be putting lots of pictures over on the Hericus Blog today, as don't want them getting lost or deleted.
