It’s official…I haven’t a clue what I’m doing!

I have come to the conclusion I should not be allowed anywhere near anything technological…ever! I’ve just reblogged my first ever post (yay me!)…and then, in the spirit of joining in, I left a comment. Of course I didn’t realise that by reblogging the post, I’d already left a comment so now there are two comments by yours truly and don’t I just look like the biggest fool!?! *sigh* Ah well, don’t they say you live and learn… Still, I do wish my learning curve didn’t seem to always involve me making a spectacle of myself! I’m sure I’ll get the hang of this site eventually but right now, I have to confess I’m just pressing buttons and hoping for the best!


Blast from the Past: Weekly Writing Challenge

Love this idea – will definitely have to give it a go!

The Daily Post

The Daily Post is on hiatus this week, so we’ll be highlighting great posts from the archives that you might have missed the first time around (never fear — there’ll still be a new Photo Challenge on Friday!). 

For the Weekly Writing Challenge, here’s one that was a fan favorite the first time around. If you’re in a blogging slump, it just might give you the creative boost you need.


Last week, we highlighted Tim of Get Second Lunch, whose latest post had just been Freshly Pressed. One of the things that drew us to his post was his unique style—illustration-heavy posts that give him a great opportunity to put his own spin on familiar topics.

Tumbleweed in my brain!

According to my mother I always have something to say for myself but apparently, having decided to start my very own blog, I have nothing… Tumbleweed bouncing gently across the part of my brain responsible for sparkling conversation…

So I’m Sadie. Hi! This is my world. Well, I guess I mentioned crafting and whatnot in my header so let me tell you what I’m working on right now.
My vet celebrates their 1st birthday at the end of this month and at the moment I’m busy kitting out two of our six dogs in fancy dress outfits – they’re going as flowers. They don’t actually know this yet and I suspect they’ll not be all that thrilled but they’ll love it when they win prizes for being adorable! The outfits aren’t finished yet so it’s a case of watch this space and pics will follow… In the meantime I’ll leave you with a pic without outfits added so the dog lovers among you can see my babies. The little black dog is Bella – at 7 months old she is genuinely a puppy while the miniature Jack Russell next to her (Freya) is six years old so not quite a puppy anymore.
