I hope you're staying warm and maybe even seeing some sunshine :) I woke up this morning, a little before 5am, to the BBC telling me we have a local weather warning for snow! Snow! Honey's it's March! Spring or not, it's certainly cold enough... brrr!
OK, so today I'm going to share how incredibly stupid I can be without even trying :)
I recently wrote an update post on how my fun little knitted blanket was coming along. As I always do, I spent ages snapping photos to later edit and add to the post. In each and every photo though there was a problem. Can you see it?
I tried closing the blinds just a little, or pulling them up altogether but it made no difference. My mind somehow decided around then that I'd broken my camera. Yep, that must be it. I went from puzzled to "oh no!!" in a fraction of a second and got myself so agitated that I actually cried! Honestly honeys, what am I like?
I adore my new camera, I really do. How could I not? It was a Christmas gift from Hubby. I married the sweetest man in the world. He knows how much my blog means to me and it was such a surprise when I opened a gorgeous gift bag and, among other sweet things, I found this..
So, after Hubby being so sweet, my inner voice was telling me quite sharply, I'd managed to go and break it after only having it a few weeks! Why!! Why was the universe so unfair? Why am I so stupid and clumsy? Poor Hubby, he'll be so disappointed in me, he'll be hurt that I didn't care enough to be careful with it, aw how was I going to tell him?
Do you ever "over think" things honeys? I do it all the time. I need to work on that... Anyway, after spending the rest of the afternoon hating myself for Hubby's inevitable hurt feelings, disappointment etc (you get the idea.... tsk!) Hubby arrives home with his usual huge smile and hugs for me and of course for our furbaby Jade. Our furbaby loves hugs :)
Well, long story short, I blurted out to Hubby that I'd broke the camera and what a horrible person I am etc etc and Hubby did what Hubby's always done, bless him. He asked what was wrong? I explained that I couldn't take photos anymore and showed him on my laptop some of the photos I'd taken that day, including the one I'd used on my blog post (which you can see above.)
Hubby grinned. Grinned honeys! He then asked if he could see my camera and proceeded to take a very soft cloth and gently cleaned the lens! Problem solved, Hubby still grinning :) Arrrggggg!! See what I mean about feeling spectacularly stupid honeys? It had never even occurred to me that I might have accidentally touched the lens and caused a smudge.
Next day Hubby brought me home the most adorable wee gift...
I love those Penguins from the Madagascar movies, I love that I can use my camera again (I'm working on being more confident with it too) and most of all I love my sweet Hubby who can calm me in a heartbeat by being, as a dear friend once said, "so laid back he's almost horizontal" (thank you Meme honey, true then, true now lol xx)
So dear ones, am I the only daft person in the world or have you ever done something so silly it later made you giggle? If so, why not share?
It's gone lunchtime and so far, touch wood, no sign of any snow yet. I'm hoping the BBC got it wrong (again) on the weather but it feels bitterly cold all the same. Stay warm honeys, till next time, smile and hug lots, huggles always xx
