Some days: Pigeon. Today? Statue.


NaComLeavMo: More Conversation Than You Can Shake a Stick at

I have pummelled my keyboard for 2 hours. I have immersed myself in WordPress FAQ and Forums. And still, STILL, I can’t get a single bloody image that isn’t Flickr into my sidebar. In a post? No problemo. Look at Mel’s lovely orange drawing, nestling comfortably exactly where I left it. The Sidebar?  Having none of it! Even changed my damn theme, and still zip. BLOODY THING!!!

To cap it all, it’s a Saturday and therefore: Family Time! Not farming time. Hairy Hubby pissed off at 9.25am to ‘just pop and sort out a lamb with maggots’ – knowing full well that in blowfly season I haven’t a leg to kick him with stand on when a lambkin is in trouble. Two hours later there was still no sign of him and Harry was being a bugger displaying tiresome behaviour. The poor lad still hasn’t shaken off this viral nasty, in fact, it’s currently enjoying a resurgence. His snot is truly impressive and widely distributed around his face and the furniture. Hubby eventually turned up looking vaguely apologetic, muttering something about orf (another lamb Nasty) which I pretended not to hear, and has been firmly handed child to feed and mind whilst I enjoy my Harry-free time HURTING MY HEAD trying to figure out WHY GOD, WHY the HTML code I have obediently inserted doesn’t sodding work

I give up. I’m going shopping. It’s Hubby’s birthday on Monday and I need cake ingredients. Also BBQ stuff, despite the likelihood of the weather turning utterly pants. Still, we are British, we only know how to BBQ in the rain and wind.

Incidentally, I forgot to mention that the return of the EWCM was a cruel vaginal hoax. My period returned the next day, and is back to stay with me, seemingly forever.  Considering buying shares in Always Ultra.


Finally have image… don’t know what the buggery fuck I did to make it work though.

 ***Updated Update***

It’s gone! It’s gone! I scaled it down to fit and it’s gone and pissing well fucked off and left a little red cross instead. It’s left me an electronic turd, the bastard thing! They should prescribe WordPress for patients with low blood pressure.

  1. I hope your day turned out a little better. Mine’s just starting here. I’m soaked through. I took the dogs for a walk forgetting what time the sprinklers started. In the middle of the garden, they popped up and dowsed us.

  2. I simply have to add you to my blog-roll. I am laughing my head off here.

    I too am British, and I grew up on a farm (though I live in a concrete wilderness now). I remember lambs and chickens. Lambs and chickens drove us all mad.

  3. Wonderful post. I’m laughing pretty hard here. I was thinking of moving my blog over to WordPress but I’m not so sure, now.

    Came over from NaComLeavMo, too, and will be another one adding you to my blogroll.

  4. Little Harry is adorable and your blog is a riot!! Glad I found your site!

    I just started blogging yesterday (just in time for NaComLeavMo!), so please stop by and say hello if you get a chance. 🙂

  5. Just wanted to say thanks very much for the comment. Loved your “sheepish” reference! Was that meant as a pun?? Either way, it was hilarious. 🙂

    I hope we can stay in touch!

  6. happy birthday to harry!!

    thanks for your comments – and the party (and beer) was great!!

  7. I’m over to say hi from NaComLeavMo. Your post has me laughing. I too have a messed up uterus (unicornuate) and have technical challenges when trying to add stuff to my blog. Gosh I wish I could just draw on my computer screen and have it show up! Your posts are so witty, I really enjoy looking at them 🙂

  8. So funny! Love the cake! I can never figure out anything on my blog either!

  9. I really like your cake – very cute. I actually can’t remember what comment this one is. 4 or 5? Whatever. I’ll do several other comment tonight.

    My life would be shittier without:


  10. I think that cake is so cute! I wish I could do more than bake cupcakes in ice cream cones (my only baking talent).

  11. I love the cake. I have always wanted to be able to do that. Maybe I’ll take some classes sometime. Here’s my list.

    high thread count sheets
    air conditioning
