"Spit the Dummy"

Since Blogger doesn't love me or my blog, I've decided to 'spit the dummy' and go to the coast for a few days!

Okay, I admit it ... we had been planning to go anyway.

So, just as soon as I can tear myself away from this computer and go and pack a few clothes and some food, we'll be off to the South Coast, where we'll laze around for a few days.

Trouble is, I'm not good at lazing on holidays (find it real easy at home!!). I can't sit around for hours just reading or watching TV.

If I go somewhere and pass a nice garden then I immediately want to go home and work in mine.

I loathe shopping - unless it's for plants.

I thought of taking the sewing machine and making myself some more shirts, but I like to finish them on the overlocker and I don't want to take that, too.

I told Richard that we're not going near any nurseries (he wants that in writing) since we haven't planted out what we bought in November, or maybe even the time before.

Perhaps I'll buy a small piece of tapestry or cross-stitch on the way down and have a go at that. I've loaded the iPod with several hours of music.

And I might even go in the water!!!

So, hopefully Blogger will love me again by Friday, when I'll be back to read what you've all been up to during the week. I hope it's a good one for everybody.

Have a lovely holiday Alice!

Alice, you definitely need a laptop with internet connection!

(Only joking ... blog free time is very necessary. Your husband will appreciate the undistracted conversation.)

Enjoy your break.

I hope you enjoy the coast! Ooh, I'm envious of the overlocker. I have one on my wishlist, but it's down the road a bit, since I want one of those schmancy easy thread and auto tension ones, which cost a fortune.

I hope your blogger woes are behind you soon.

Enjoy your holiday Alice. Good on you for not wanting to get sucked into those nurseries either. That takes a very disciplined gardener....

Have a great holiday, Alice. Don't forget a couple of good books too! And the camera, so we can all see where you went :)

Val said...

Yes, that does sound like a rash promise, not to go to nurseries. Why not take photos of gardens you come across and post them when you get back, with some commentary? That is, if Blogger is working for you.

And have a good trip!

(You know, your word verification IS more difficult to read than others'. I'll pay more attention as I go through people's blogs.)

Hope you have a lovely break away. I'm sure it will be lovely regardless of what you do or don't do for that matter.
Can't wait to catch up with how you went. You always have great photos to share.
