Mad Crazy Weekend

We lost our internet connection last Friday and have been offline from then till now. It has been a long LONG week made all the more frustrating because I was waiting for an important email. I entered a writing competition last month and the results were due... last friday!

To add to the craziness all the family have been sick or needing to go to the doctor. We've had 6 doctor appointments in ten days! Today at 4:00 it's my turn - I hurt my eye last night with hot oil (frying chicken) and now it feels like I spent a month staring at a raw onion. So, I'm typing this with one eye closed, which feels really weird.

I have almost 200 emails in my inbox and one of them was the one I'd been waiting to get. I came SECOND in the writing competition!

Here's the link to the list of winners.

I promise to write all about the story and the prize giving soon. :-)


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your computer troubles, Michelle and about the need for so many doctor's visits. Your eye sounds so painful--ouch! Hope the doctor can help and you feel better soon.

    Congratulations on winning second place! That's fantastic! :D

  2. Congratulations on your win! I hope everyone feels better soon.
