So What’s Been Happening…?

Its been a loooong work week, and I can’t wait for the weekend!

As I mentioned earlier this week- last night we went to see the MPH with Top Gear Live at the Dome! I’m not going to give anything away because I know there are people going to the other shows (and yes, I know they may not be identical shows, but I’m still not saying anything), so I’ll just say it was fan-fargin-tastic! As can be expected with Jeremy, no subject is taboo, and watching the cars maneouvre LITERALLY gives me goosebumps… heh heh, am I a petrolhead or what!!??? It was such a jol, and Damien thoroughly enjoyed it too. I did try to take pictures, but in an arena that size a flash is useless, and I SO need to learn how to set up my camera to get decent pictures without one… I’ll post a couple, but don’t hold your breath, okay? We also spotted a few celebs and may well be on TV! Carte Blanche’s Derek Watts was doing a segment right in front of us, and Highveld Stereo’s Wackhead was sitting a couple of rows in front of us!

This weekend my darling Glugster is going away for the weekend with the choir… We have thus far spent one night apart when we had our sibling Christmas party last December, which was okay for me because I was busy and the time went quickly. And we survived, LOL, so now we will see if we can survive two nights apart! I’m not going to see him till Sunday night again as he’s leaving straight after work today!!! And they have quite an itinerary planned too, with two to three practice sessions a day!

Ooh, and its BlogGirls on Saturday, and Sweets is coming with me, YAY!!! I so love these get togethers! I’m trying a few new cupcake recipes too, so lets hope they’re a success.

On Sunday Damien and I plan on having a date. We usually mall-crawl and watch a movie and such, its what we like to do… and its very important that he not feel I’m not paying him any attention since I started seeing my Glugs!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend too!!!

Needing A Change?

I found a website, where you can upload a picture of yourself and then play with hairstyles and colours and even change your make-up and eye colour… and then my Glugs was rushing me to watch “The Mentalist” and I neglected to save the results properly! I did manage to get a few images of my experimentation though, heh heh.
Its not the most flattering picture of me- but it provided a good hour or so of entertainment, LOL!

Talk About Timing!

I’ve only just announced that my Glugs and I will be trying for a baby and I’ve already been invited to take part in a blog contest… with book prizes!

I now stand the chance of winning two, yes- that’s TWO, autographed sets of “No-Cry” books by best-selling author Elizabeth Pantley- one set for me, and one set to use as a prize for a contest or giveaway on my blog! How cool is that!!?? There will be 3 winners- each to win TWO sets of FIVE books- chosen at random on February 25, 2009!

The No-Cry book series (and prize) includes:

The No-Cry Nap Solution *NEW*

The No-Cry Sleep Solution

The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers & Preschoolers

The No-Cry Potty Training Solution

The No-Cry Discipline Solution

All you do to enter is mention her new book on your blog…

The No-Cry Nap Solution: Guaranteed Gentle Ways to Solve All Your Naptime Problems by Elizabeth Pantley

I found reviews for the book here, here, here and here, and whilst I hadn’t heard of her till now she is exceptionally well known and her books seem to be genuinely helpful. I reckon that if Glugs and I are successful in our baby-building-endeavours these books may come in handy!

The other part of the entry is to send Elizabeth your blog name, URL (the page/post with the book mention), your name and email address and you’ll be entered into the contest!

And of course (which I almost forgot) tell her you found the competition here!

Right. That Bloody Does It.

It is officially de-lurking day here on my blog. So if you’ve been peaking into Angel’s Mind without ever announcing yourself- and I know you pop in here on a regular basis- today’s the day to do so.

You needn’t send me a CV, but at least give me a name and a country, or a city, dammit!!!

And besides, everyblogger seems to be having a de-lurking day, and I can’t not follow a blog trend dontchaknow… so just tell me who you is, okiday!??!!

WTF!!?!

Erm… can someone please explain to me why this Uyanda Mbuli chick has a full page in the HEAT magazine to use as her own personal “blog” space?
And no, I don’t know who she is, so maybe she owns the rag- or her husband does, but this page makes absolutely fork all sense to me. Oh, and I refuse to link her and give her yet more attention…
The page is called “Yanda World” and the decription says “take a seat in the front row… my little corner of heat is strictly fabulous and yandalicious!”
It would make sense to me if she was using the space to promote people or businesses- but on her latest one she goes on about investing your money and saving cash, the shoes she got for her birthday (yes they are exquisite) and a day at a spa that she doesn’t even name!!! And she seems to have a photographer everywhere she goes- and I mean a photographer, not just someone taking pictures!
