I didn't disappear off to England this time. Instead it was my computer that went on a trip - to the see the nice bloke who knows all about computers who works with my husband.
I wish my husband had given me some warning about this trip, mind, so that I could have made sure that we had a copy of everything on the PC. My 'My Pictures' folder was a casualty, so I'm missing all the pictures that I have been sent by others. Yet my husband's gaming stuff suspiciously survived. Hmpf... Still, the computer returned acting more like its former self. Now I've just got to find a bunch of software cds for reloading things and hope that I still have all of my camera's memory cards (I should rephrase that: My husband had better hope that I still have all of my camera's memory cards...).
So, I've extended the closing date of the giveaway to this morning, as I wasn't around to announce a winner. Drum roll, please...The winner is Liz:
Liz, I'll be sending you an e-mail to find out your address.
Thank you so much for entering, everyone. It looks like I've got a nice long list of new blogs to explore. Now, if anyone is still reading, I'll bore you with my pictures from my trip home:Most of our time was spent with family and friends, but we did get out and about a little bit. Unfortunately it waited for us to leave before it snowed properly, so we didn't get to go sledging on our local hill, though. Tch, I miss home...
Now, I'm not sure if this counts as a translation of the day, but I had an American friend ask what this 'sledging' thing is - it's sledding. Everyone I knew growing up referred to hurtling down a snow-covered hill on a wooden sledge made by your dad as sledging, but I don't think that it is just a British term. Then again, it might just be that my friend still has trouble understanding my mumbling English accent...
