I A.M S.O B.U.S.Y !


And yet I still find time to tell the world how busy I am ?

Yeah, busy is an understatment this weekend ! I`ve got a custom order for gloves (which I have still to buy the yarn for), another custom order for an entire Graphics Package for an online business. Then I`ve just finished 2 hats for my cousins. Need to do some washing. Painted the fences outside (with help from my auntie). Gave my grandma a driving lesson because I`m taking my car when we go on holiday and she wants to be able to drive it too (she hasn`t driven a manual in 15 was an expierience !!) Go food shopping. Package and post off a hat. Go to nana`s for sunday dinner. And somewhere in amongst that crap I`ve got to start my coursework for my degree (and write an essay before I go on holiday in a fortnight)! EEK. I don`t think I`m going to be able to sleep this weekend LOL

Ah well, I`d only moan if I was bored !

I`ve got Glasses

Well, I went to the Opticians this afternoon about my twitch. I had my eye test which was very long, and very boring and then the guy said I needed glasses ! eek

They are just for VDU use at the minute but he did mention maybe using them when I`m watching tele (all the time then, lol) but I bet now I`ve got some I`ll end up having them forever !

The worst thing was the cost ! £25 for the eye test, £59 for the frames and £79 for the lenses ! Luckily I took my nana with me so I know owe her the money !

I`ll try and get a picture of them, they very pretty and they`re called 'shiny red' on the recipt ^_^

(It`s really weird typing and wearing them, I keep hitting the wrong keys !) lol

Free Botox !?

Ok, so I`ve had a twitch in my eye for about 3 weeks now and I finally gave up and went to the doctors ! (It was driving me absolutley crazy !)

Anyhoo, the doctor seemed quite interested at the position of my 'twitch' as it wasn`t where twitches usually are (aparently lol).

No he`s suggested going to the opticians to get my eyes checked in case I need glasses (my vision is pretty much perfect) and if I don`t then he said if it doesn`t stop the only real treatment is botox !

To paralyse the muscles that are making it twitch, the doc even joked that it`d be a bonus on 2 fronts, 1: my eye stops twitching and 2: I look younger.

My mum and dad however said I`d have one side of my face like snow white and the other like quazemodo ! (We have a strange sense of humour in our family) then we proceeded to make quazemodo noises down the phone to each other before I hung up lol ^_^

Who knew though, go to a doctor in Derby and twitch at them and you get free Botox ! (they`ll be a rush on !)

I was in the Etsy forums the other day, mooching around in my usual fashion when I came across a thread (which I`ve lost the link to) about the UK`s 'Etsy' I decided to investigate and I was pleasntly surprised. Admittedly it`s in beta testing stage at the moment but I`ve decided that it can`t hurt to give it a try ^_^

Here the link to my shop:

Which I will be adding to soon !
