1,000 thanks!

Yeah, I can't believe it either! 1,000 posts! That's insane! And that's not even counting the drafts that never got anywhere. So, to celebrate the insanity I'm having a giveaway. Just a wee one (my current circumstances, as you know, do not allow for much postage spending, unfortunately!), but a pretty one, nonetheless. So if you would like a wee, pretty thing, please help me celebrate by leaving a comment.

Please remember to fill in the email bit, noone will see it but me, and I will need to contact you! Also, if you will humour me and pick one word that describes either me or the blog, that would be awesome. I could draw lots out of a hat, but I'm not gonna do that; I'll let Tony read the comments and the one word description that he thinks fits me/the blog best, will receive something pretty in the mail. Yes, sir. Ya got until midnight on Saturday.

And can I just say, thank you very much for stopping by. It makes it a bit less insane to have written 1,000 blog posts when there are actually people reading them! Although that is not the reason I write a blog. Nice to know I'm not just blabbering to myself! So thank you! :-)

Happy New Year!

Oh man, you guys! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on the previous post! Who knew so many sweet people read this little blog!? Really, truly, from the bottom of my heart: thank you! Tony says thanks too. :-)

The pictures are from Christmas, chez my parents and in Ã…rhus (love those lights!).

Have a happy New Year everyone!

Relief + links

Oi. It never rains but it pours. First we had the weekend from Hell, and tonight Tony had an accident with his bicycle. Some tosser pedestrian crossed the road without looking and Tony didn't have time to stop and crashed into him. Down Tony and the bike went. Thankfully, he's not seriously hurt; he just has some bruises on his arm and knee. Although he is hobbling along, which of course makes me worry. But perhaps that just says more about me than the seriousness of his injury... I'm just glad he's ok. Thank the Force, right?

Alright, I completely forget to mention that my sewing machine mat tutorial was finally on the Sew,Mama,Sew! blog last week. Weee! How cool is that!? It was in a post along with some other neat-o gifts for the crafter, such as a Roll-Up Crochet Hook Case Tutorial and a cool reversible sewing machine cover. You should check out all the gift ideas if you haven't already!

Here's an interesting 'rant on blogging' from Keri Smith. I found myself nodding in agreement several times. Whether you agree with Keri or not, it's sometimes good to think about why (and how?) you do things.

Finally, Lisa Lam has an interview with Amy Karol on eMoms At Home which is also a very nice read.

Thank you

You are wonderful. Thank you for leaving such nice comments. I am feeling a lot better today, partly, no doubt, because of you all. The interwebs is such an amazing thing, allowing virtual strangers to lighten the life of each other.

Fittingly, there was a book waiting for me at the library today called How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. I'm trying to take that to heart. Difficult though; I have to have a chat with the person tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to it one bit, as you can probably imagine.

Well, Tony and I were watching QI last night and it was quite interesting (get it?) and funny. One bit that really had us in stitches was a bird doing the moonwalk - of sorts- and I thought I'd share it with you (but watch it without the sound, that's funnier), because you are so sweet and lovely. So, thank you again. I really, really appreciate your words. :-)
