Nightmare on Notnamedafteratree Street

For the past couple of weeks I've been having the most dreadful nightmares, ranging from ones which have me waking up in an ice-cold sweat, to the ones which are like hallucinations, to ones where I imagine my body is someplace else and incapable of doing things.
Don't know why I'm getting them, cos I don't have a guilty conscience about anything (apart from not going to the gym, but I went tonight).
Looking forward to going out on Friday, cos it seems to have been a really long week this week. Today was a pretty crap day - couldn't find a couple of things I was looking for, even though I was positive I knew where they were (doesn't help that there is loads of other stuff cluttering up my office at the moment). Think we're going up btw - meant to be going for something to eat first, but I'll wait and see what time they're going at - want to go to gym after work on Friday, so will never manage one of those ridiculous 7.30 starts.
I'm sure I must have something more interesting to say, but just can't think of it atm.

My T in the Park tix that is :D:D:D - couldn't get weekend ones, but I managed to get 2 for the Sunday and C got 2 for the Saturday, so all's well.
Tis my birthday today, so heading up to Mum's later for some dinner. J's party was a hoot last night - me and G had such a laugh dancing to YMCA, Timewarp & Belle of Belfast City.
Did I mention I got T in the Park tickets :D:D:D:D:D:D

Went to The Killers at the SECC last night - such a good gig - a massive 10/10 (my personal faves were Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll and All The Things That I've Done - so no surprises there - along with a great cover of Joy Division's Shadowplay).
The evening was not without its mishaps though. Firstly C tore ligaments in her ankle on Wendesday night, and admitted on Thursday afternoon that there was no way she'd be able to stand on it for that length of time - was really disappointed but we're going to try to get tickets for T in the Park to make up for it.
Then I got through to SECC, met up with B's friend A and discovered NO TICKETS!!!!! A was alright cos I'd given his to B last weekend. At first I thought maybe I had pulled mine out my bag when I got my gloves, so retraced steps, no result. Then I called Mum just in case, and asked her to go down to the flat to look - 10 mins later a phone call saying they were there with a bundle of stuff I had pulled out my bag to make it lighter.
Originally we were going to meet halfway, although the traffic heading back was going to be bad cos of that stupid tipper truck managing to lift its tipper right under a motorway overhead sign and getting well and truly stuck!!! Then my wonderful Mum had a brainwave - she'd jump on a train & meet us at Queen St. Station. So A and I walked up to Queen St - lucky I knew how to get there ok - picked up tickets and headed back to SECC - managed to get a taxi just by the river so saved some time too. Felt really guilty cos I didn't even know A and I'm dragging him all over Glasgow less than an hour before the gig due to start.
Off today, have some stuff to make for J's 60th birthday pressie for tomorrow - she's having a surprise party which should be nice - although it has a 7:30 start!!!!!
Bad thing is someone has put a dent in my car today - think it happened in Asda carpark, but can't be 100% sure it didn't happen at SECC last night.
Anyways off to do creative stuff, so TTFN xoxoxo

This week at DCMs You are being Dared to make a card that is inspired by 'All Things Media'.

Mine is based on media over-reaction/hype regarding bird flu :D:D. Pretty crap card actually, but once the idea popped in, I couldn't think of anything else.

They're all ganging up on me!!!

My little machines, that is. First silly car decides not to go and then I was faffing about with my MP3 with gloves on and dropped him, now he has a hard disk problem and won't work :(:(:(:(:(
I suppose I will need to get a new one, but really could do without spending c.£200 (esp since I'm still not sure what is wrong with the car, although I think it is only a battery).
So, suffice to say I am in a total crap mood, plus have had a blinding headache all day and blurry eyes and really really bad hair.
The only good thing is that's I ordered my SLF ticket today :D:D:D - can't wait.
Off to have a bath now to cheer me up.
Toodles xoxo

Dead & Digging

Dead - car had died on me overnight - little bugger that it is - cost me and arm & leg to get a cab to work (and was too dark when I got home to jump start it - why oh why do none of my family have anything practical like a torch!!) Meant I missed Photoshop tonight, so quite pissed about that.
Digging...into my past. I've been doing my family tree for a week now and it's coming on great - I'm back to c1720 on Mum's side and around 1815 on Dad's. It's really interesting, so going to pay a visit to the library (also going to make B take me to the graveyard in Whitburn cos she's from up that way and I don't really know where Whitburn is, let alone the graveyard in it - plus it's in the countryside and me and the country don't really see eye to eye).
Which has just reminded me I had a dream about cows last night - someone wanted me to walk through a field full of cows and I didn't want to go cos I knew they would chase me. Don't know what it means - probably just stay out of fields (actually, have I ever even been in a field?)
toodles til next time.

Springily Springy

Since it is lovely and spring-like this week, I made this card for my friend's brithday a couple of days ago.
