It's not what I think that you think it is. And it's definitely not what I think I know what my sister thinks it is. Unless you all think it's a knitted monkey leg, in which case you'd be right and I'd be unfit to have a blog which is meant to appeal to adults and children alike.
Ahem. In less disturbing news, the Red Arrows flew over our place a couple of times yesterday. It was very cool. I once had a school friend who told me her Dad was the lead pilot in the Red Arrows. I believed her. (He wasn't, he worked for the water board, but hey, it was an easy mistake to make. Red Arrows pilot / water board employee? Almost interchangeable)
Anyway, I wasn't quick enough with my camera to get a shot of them but I did catch these fine feathered friends watching the show ......
After today I've decided not to blog every day*. I fear that my blog may be becoming a tad boring. I may be a one trick
pony monkey. I feel that I'm flogging a dead horse monkey. You see? I can't even use metaphors without making them monkey related. And as a wise woman once said, "why blog when you've got nothing to blog about?" (I'm paraphrasing slightly there but it was along those lines)
But before I push off for a few days to get cracking with that bag of stunt monkees, I feel it my blogging duty to pass on the Nice Matters award I received from Rubyred recently (thanks Rubyred!) .......
This should apparently be "awarded to those who are just nice people, good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others, that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world" so I feel a bit of a fake in getting one, but I'm passing on the mantle to the following people, who may or may not wish to pass it on (and sorry if you already have it) :-
(Also, I didn't really want to nominate VC at the vicious chicken for a Nice Matters award, but as I'd already handed out Rockin' Girl Blogger prizes, she'll have to settle with this one! And Michaela ..... please don't take this as bribery. Unless you really want to and it's going to have the desired effect!)
* this decision has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it's now dark when I get up to blog and I want an extra hour in bed. Absolutely nothing.
