Last night my auction for this gorgeous Laura Ashley cushion cover ended on my newest store Fab Frau Vintage Country Emporium ... not an unusual occurrence in the eBay world ....
....I was enjoying quality time with my son Nick watching television shortly before the auction finished when 'bang!' we lost power. We thought it was just something tripping the safety switch and as it turns out we were right - but we couldn't fix it last night and most of our power to all plugged in appliances was gone - and worse still the hot water service... and the most scary for me was my computer was non functioning. There was one socket working in the whole house and I plugged the fridge into that .... after a blonde hour or so I might add.... and then I had the brain wave of plugging my busy computer boards in there too - 'poof!' - don't think so ... found another plug via a long extension lead for the fridge....Anyway all is well in the light of day because I read the instructions (just before I called the electrician, mind you) and pulled every plugged in thing out around the house and gradually put them back in one at a time. I think the problem is my shed .... and that's not urgent - phew!
I was a bit upset last night thinking I've just announced my return to the world and now I'm off line and won't be able to work and blah, blah, blah pity party - so I flicked my own circuit breaker and snapped out if - a glass of wine helped I might add - and my son Nick and I played Texas Hold'em Poker - and he won the contents of my match box in the end. We haven't done that since we were in a caravan together so it was a great night after all.
This is my son Nick pictured below (in case you hadn't guessed already *grin*) with his lovely date, Bronwyn, for the Hurstbridge Football Club Under 17's Brownlow evening. Isn't the Club fantastic making it such a special night for the boys. Very cute walking the red carpet with a camera and microphone stuck in their face.
|"I see you, Mum, you're embarrassing me." He's glad I took the pics now ;)|
|"Mum, thought you weren't a stage mother - not in front of my date!"|
|Nick looking casually to the left....and not at me. ;)|

Thanks for popping by.
