I really had done something wrong or the kids as they had used this computer a few times as their own had a time limit for only an hour a day during weekdays. I am fed up stopping them when they are online so hubby set a time limit on both of their pc.
Can't really fine the documents where all the pictures from 2007-2009, i just hope dh can find a way when gets back.

Took some pictures of the tulips i had planted end last year. I didn't know these are quite tall ones but i do love the colors. My small garden is a bit messy but hope to add more plants later.

These were from last year too, thought they were dead during the winter but as you can see they are blooming nicely!

(You can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want)

Here's a picture of the items i received from Lynn. Aren't they lovely!
So neatly finished!

I finished three of these but one is missing here as it went to ,Natalija for the biscornu exchange. One of this will be send to Von when she'll send me her address.

A nice surprise came in today from 1-2-3 Stitch, really wondering when i was holding the envelope as i haven't order anything from there. I quickly opened it and found out Josephine(no blog) had placed the order for me as her way of thanks for receiving the b-day giveaway last year. This is really a cute design. Thanks so much Josephine. Hope you read this message as i can't find your e-mail address.

I do feel pain all over after running for two days but it does feels good so i think i will try to go atleast 3 times a week. So far the weather still good so there's no excuse not too.

Thank you all so much for stopping by. I really appreciate all the comments.

What pretty flowers! Keep up with the running Mylene, it really does get easier!

Brigitte said...

Your tulip pictures are wonderful. Tulips are my favourite flowers this spring.
I hope your muscles feel better soon. It's always hard to start running again after the winter. Not that I know anything about it but this is what my son told me, lol.

Wat een narigheid met je computer! Ik kan mij voorstellen dat je er helemaal gek van wordt! Ik wist niet dat je een soort tijdklok op een computer kan installeren, maar het is wel een goed idee! Hier in huis hebben we één computer in de woonkamer (kan ik het goed in de gaten houden) en daar doen we het met z'n zessen mee. Schoolwerk gaat altijd voor (dat kan heel lang duren, de oudste zit in VWO-3 en moet soms heel veel typen en zo), en voor de jongsten is het ook de tijdslimiet van één uur per dag. En voor de allerjongste'af en toe'. Wat hadden onze moeders het toch makkelijk he? Geen hele dag tv, geen computers...dat scheelde een hele boel gemopper! Maar je bent niet de enige met dit probleem hoor! (gedeelde smart is halve smart..)
Je hebt weer heel mooie borduurwerkjes gemaakt en ontvangen, je lijkt wel een fabriekje! Ik ben wel een beetje jaloers op je hardlopen..ik deed dat ook iedere dag. Tot ik geblesseerd raakte anderhalf jaar ben ik weer 12 kilo zwaarder en durf niet meer te beginnen.. Sterkte! En geniet van de vakantie!
Groetjes Mama Lieveheersbeestje.
