I Blogged Myself

Welcome to the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational blog since Kermit left just a little bit of the swamp in his pants.

Sweetums Update # 7

I know I've been away for a long time; my apologies. I could explain it all by saying how busy it's been at work, and how our home life has become so full of activity and mayhem that my blogging adventures were left by the wayside, but that ain't gonna interest you or make you feel loved, so instead I'll say I was kidnapped by pirates.

Thankfully, when I showed them a picture of Sweetums, they saw how adorable he is and let me go -- and as agreed, here's my big shout-out to Captain Tom Badass and his band of Pissy Pirates. You guys rock.

So, what have I been up to, eh? Well, there was Grannie's 100th birthday at the end of July, for which Wifey, Sweetums and I drove up to Sydney in a friend's loaned convertible (with the top decidely up, thank you for asking). We had a great time and Grannie was still cracking jokes and doing cartwheels, so she'll probably live to see Sweetums' 21st yet.

Speaking of Sweetums and birthdays, next month will see him turn the magical, mysterious One. He's very much looking forward to it, and invitations are being sent out this week to all his little friends and hangers-on.

Wifey's been busy with her teaching rounds, but has recently completed another batch of three weeks. My workplace has seen more departures from my department, and at the moment I'm the only one left! (Yes, I realise that may be a message about my personal hygiene ...) I've employed someone who'll be joining the team next week, and I still have another position to fill after that.

I continue to be annoyed by bad drivers and poor spelling, punctuation and grammar on TV and radio ads (the latter not being so bad with the spelling aspect), and have recently found more Muppet items on eBay that I don't (yet) own.

So there's nothing much new with me. How about with you?
