WOYWW... &...A Solemn Promise...

... to NOT mention every single time I blog that I am going somewhere in a months time... and I also promise not to waffle on alarmingly about my impending trip... but... I can't help but just say a ickle bit... well, you will indulge me... won't you??? There I was, sitting here (mm, not the best sentence construction there rofl) yesterday morning typing away on the blog when my email account did that little whoo/who noise that it does when a new email arrives... and in the bottom right hand corner of the screen were the message details... it said it was from Tim Holtz... I started to shake... like I mean... reaaaaally shake... because you see, I have been pouncing on my emails since last Monday... and then of course Lionel decided to go into major surgery at the weekend so that had me even more worked up in case an email arrived and I didn't get it... *pauses for breath* So... I calmly, ok, not so calmly... ok, I shook like a dog doing his proverbials and waited until the blog post was all done and posted... and then went and clicked the email to open... and I shut my eyes...




I know, I know... I haven't mastered seeing through my eyelids but... well, you know when you are watching TV and there is a gory operation scene and you kind of look but look away at the same time?? Well, that was me opening the email. So, this email... from THE Tim Holtz was actually in response to my application for Ranger U... and the email was... ACCEPTING ME!!!!! OMG!!!! Indeedily... I am going to Ranger U!!!! I am beyond happy, bouncy, ecstatic, over the moon, excited, fizzing and very nearly peeing my pants with the excitement and anticipation of it all!!!




So, the solemn promise in the title is ... promising not to talk about it every day... well, I could mention it in passing... you know, sort of... oh and it is now less than a month until I go to Ranger U... but I won't say things like that... nope, not me... much rofl Anyways... today is Wednesday... which means it is WOYWW hosted by the lovely Julia... click on her name to be whizzed off to her blog to see all the deets etc on how to join in with the event of the week in the diary of us bloggers... I had better get a move on... I have just remembered that I can't find my Passport and I am going to need that... you know... soon ;o)) *scuttles off to hide* Thanks for looking.. have a very goodly day!! TTFN

Hels x

PS.. just realised... I never said what the photo's were... well, after many comments in previous weeks about the tidyness of my desk, I decided to mess it up for you... I did... honest, I just grabbed stuff and popped it on there.. ahem... I hadn't left it messy at all... it was tidy so my New Year Resolution was, I mean IS, still intact... ahem....

And the other photo... some of you asked what 13-6 stands for on my arty book... that is my very special date... and then you asked what I did with all those tags I make... well, here are some of them in their basket... in there are the 12 Tags of last Christmas and some others I have been fiddling with recently... Right, I am deffo off now... have got a suitcase to find... rofl

Soooo exciting!!!!! If anything could make someone see through eyelids, it's that kind of news. And I implore you to talk about it every day, even many times a day. And then blog about it while there in excrutiating detail so that those of us less fortunate may at least experience it vicariously. Congratulations! That's wonderful.

Congratulations Hels, belatedly I know but still heartfelt. No wonder you are shaking with excitement - who wouldn't be in the same circumstances! As for the promise not to mention it too often, well, I don't think so!!! BTW, you'll never convince me that your desk is untidy - even if you have chucked a few items on it for reveal purposes :) Love the basket of tags. Elizabeth x #96
