Boxing Day

December 26th is called Boxing Day in the UK. I have read several explanations, all different, about the origin of the name.

Anyway, here are my news for today:

First my laptop died on Cristmas Eve. Then one of ds´s toys was not working on Christmas evening. This morning our car caught fire. {As dh was going to pour water for the windscreen thingie he had a jar in his hand and put the flames out easily} Now dd´s cd player refuses to play. I´m NOT going to ask what next, just in case. ;)

Goodness, what a rotten run of bad luck, Paula! I'm glad the car fire was put out quickly. Hopefully, things will start to improve very soon ~ xo

I hope things get better soon.

Oh Paula! Mechanics are not with you right now. Maybe it's a message from the universe to go natural for a while? lol :) May 2010 bring you repairs, shiny new experiences, lots of laughter and love! :)
