Yep it really is after 1 am where I am at the moment!! This evening I had intended to do something crafty seeing as I have the table set up - I just did NOT get round to it! Why?! I thought I'd look through my folders in my 'favourites' on AOL - quite jumbled up I think. The short of it is, I've sifted through what I've wanted to keep, came across some broken links for some of the websites and some websites no longer exist LOL!!! That's how long ago I've probably actually used those websites. I've tweaked this blog a bit and sorted out a photography list, a downloads list for templates and ideas, quotes and verses list etc. I even came across blogs recently added to my favourites and now transferred them on to my follow list or blog list in the margin. It's been time consuming I hadn't even realised the time!! Discovering lots of bookmarked sites I want to keep, discovering lots of sites no longer in use, discovering internet housekeeping can be time consuming.
Anyways, another discovery I've made today along with the help of my eldest daughter and 1 of her best friends. Marianne had apparently asked me on a few occasions in the past whether I knew her chum's dad. She tried to describe him and I hadn't 'clicked' and said I didn't know of anyone to that description. Sunday night Marianne's friend stayed over. On Monday we got talking later on in the day and again Marianne said I should know her friend's dad as he worked in the Blood Transfusion Service. I had replied that it would depend when he worked there as I had left that employment a good few years ago! It wasn't until her friend said he was still working there and said his name. I about fell off my seat with shock and laughter LOL!!! YES!! I do indeed know her dad - in fact I had worked with him when I was a lab assistant and socialised on Christmas pub lunches etc!!! I even know her granny and grandad too!! I am already friends with said friend's mum whom I met through another friend and had even been to Stobo Castle with her!! Jeezo - a very small world indeed!!!
We humans are apparently separated by a distance of 8 people - at least that's what I recall - I would never have believed it in a month of Sundays LOL!!!
