Have I Been Cursed?

I only ask because nothing seems to be going right at the moment.  This isn't going to be a 'woe is me' blog entry but my oxycon still isn't fixed, which is so frustrating.  So, I decided that I could use up beads I have already made and get busy with some more work on Etsy BUT the camera decided to break - some problem with the memory card.  We have ordered a new memory card, which was despatched over a week ago and we still haven't received it.  I know we have had a bank holiday but there are other letters we should have received by now but they haven't turned up either!

We had a lovely Easter break but that wasn't without drama.  My 3 year old son Reuben fell over during a walk in the woods. He was clutching a handful of leaves in one hand and so fell right over onto the other hand.  It turns out he has a green-stick(?) fracture on his right wrist! 

I'm not even going to go into the trauma with the two cars - brakes, tyres, exhausts and the MOT's are due soon...... did I mention redundancy?

Anyway, that's it, rant over now.  It's not all bad.  It's great to have hubby home to take over with the school run.  And I'm off to have coffee with friends later this morning, the sun is shining STILL so life aint that bad...

I hope to able to post some good news soon, with photos!

Target Update

Things went a little quiet last week....  But, I have added two new Beau Bangles to the shop today.  I am also encountering a slight techincal hitch - my oxycon (very important piece of kit in bead making for all the non-lampers out there) is broken.  Hopefully not beyond repair *puts hands together for a little prayer*.  I have opened it up to see if I can see anything untoward... who am I kidding?  As if I can work out what does what.  I am really hoping this doesn't hamper progress towards the target as I do have a stock of beads I could be using.  Its typical of me though, when I can't do something I want to do it all the more.....
