I do have a good reason for not posting...

I have spent the last few months growing eyebrows, fingers and toes and am now mother to a slightly undersized version of myself.

Plans to finish work and spend a couple of weeks preparing everything went out the window when I was admitted to hospital early...ooops...now five weeks later I am settling into life waking up at 5am in the morning (something I only ever used to do if I had to catch a red eye flight).

Anyway so now that I'm at home a while I'm hoping I will have some time to undertake some of those little projects I have been wanting to do...even if I have to work on them in half hour blocks :)

I have started already and have made some cute little bibs and burping cloths for bub - will post some pics shortly.

Light bulb Santa

Before Christmas I watched a TV special - Oprah did a tour of the Whitehouse with Michelle Obama. They went through all the rooms and looked at the different Christmas themes and decorations. One that I particularly remember was a Christmas tree that had been themed with baubles hand decorated by each state. I thought that was a great idea.

Anyway I thought I would share a picture of a handmade Christmas decoration I made a year or two back. I used an old light bulb and painted it up to look like a Santa. I have three more to make but didn't get time to do it last year...maybe next time.

Infallible New Years resolution to end all New Years resolutions....

Yes it has been a while and after a few attempts to log in I finally remembered my password.

I think it is quite appropriate like probably millions of others to make the first post for 2010 all about my New Years resolution...the joey diddledums 2010 New years resolution is.....drum roll......wait for it..... Nup....didn't make one....don't have one.....not really interested in having one....

It follows on from a very solid 2009 New Years resolution that was incredibly infallible by the way....and what was that I hear you say... to do away with New Years resolutions....because not once, not ever have I managed to actually live up to one.

So here tis the joey diddledums first post of 2010...now let us see if the joey diddledums 2009 / 10 incredibly infallible NYs resolution takes off....
