Looong Week!

Has this week just draaaaged or is it me? I can't believe that Saturday has only JUST arrived. Of course, despite having a long, busy week, my stupid body clock is on the fritz again and I was up at 6.30am. I had a crappy night as well, being that someone has given me a sore throat, so I've been coughing and trying to clear my throat all fricking night. Added to this Miguel was wandering around on the bed all night which didn't help, and Jo couldn't get comfortable which didn't help. and I couldn't get comfortable...


All in all, it's been a pretty hectic one, with kids running around alternating between Saints and Devils, Jo being ill then tattoo'd, housework, phone calls, texts, idiots on the web, getting tagged, getting glasses, shopping, socialising... WHY am I up so early again?

On top of all this, there are several new blogs I've started reading and spamming commenting on. I've added them all to the sidebar there, and aside from Jo at the top, they're all in some sort of alphabetical order. Kinda. You've got the return of Alan from Scotland with his third blog in the last 12 months. Karin has also returned with her Dried Papercuts & Chicken blog. There's Deni from Canada that doesn't blog often, but also misses the afore-mentioned Alan. There's The Girl In Her Underwear who, it turns out, is dealing with a child newly diagnosed with CHD. You've got Grayma's Place, who is new to blogging and still learning the ropes. You've also got The Reluctant Dad, a man that is new to the whole Fatherhood thing, and lastly, there's Sween in the Bean, who like most of us, posts whatever springs to mind.

This week, the news has been filled with, er... Well, I don't know actually. Mostly politics I suppose. Plus certain world leaders throwing more troops into various war zones. Idiots. And speaking of idiots, David and Ugly Beckham are finally pissing off to America. He wants to change football. Yeah, sure, the £128million had nothing to do with it. Ah well, they can have him. And on top of this, England is once again gripped by the weather - wind and rain this time. My closest call was getting wet on a school run. hehe

My blogging week has been filled with tags (as usual - and you should do them too), crazies on the street, realising I am living by a clock, recreating my family, a la South Park, posting from my mobile phone, harassing spammers, and as usual, pissing around with my template - which ended up back exactly the way it started. From the polls, it seems everyone is happy with how things look, so I will cease my fiddling. Everything is almost working fully, but it seems we have a random popup on here which is out of my control, thanks to the Cbox. I am hunting around for a better free one, but so far - no luck. We also have two votes on "Something Is Missing" so if people could elaborate on that, I'll see what I can do.

And Minge, I will post on my "Irrational Thoughts" later on for you old boy :)

Being that I've not done this since Mid-December, there might be a fair bit on here. I'm sure you can deal with it ;) There's always the "Don't click the links!" part to save time! And as usual, anything that might be bad/dodgy/rude or whatever will be marked in Red. Don't say I didn't warn you! At least, I assume that's red. Whatever.

Looking forward to irrational thoughts.
