I've been a bit slack on the blogging front but I've had a good reason, honest!

One night last week, at around eleven in the evening while I was in the shower (don't get too's not a naughty story), my little dog began barking furiously. Hubby was away but I wasn't too concerned as she often barks at cats in this way. I continued showering, next minute there was a pounding at my bathroom door and a man's voice said, "It's OK Karen, it's only me." After I had recovered from my fright, I dressed and discovered it was my friend Laurie.

He had called earlier and left a message on the answering machine, asking if he could come and stay with us. Unfortunately, when I had played back the message, I had no idea what he was mumbling about and decided I would call him the next day. So, he came over at ELEVEN o'clock, knocked on the door and when nobody answered, BROKE into my house,hmmmmmmmmm. I don't know what I was more upset about, the fact that he let himself into my house or the fact that somebody else could have broken in so easily.

Anyway, we had a few drinks and I said it was OK for him to stay a while. Didn't have much choice really. The next day he fixed my door, cooked dinner and watched a couple of episodes of Dr Who with me so I guess I can forgive him. He finally toddled off to his own place later on in the week.

In other news, I've recently discovered one of my favourite bloggers is visiting my home town. Woohoo! Steve (Whitesnake) tells me he's coming over for a quiet time but hubby and I have other ideas. Me thinks a few beers and wines may have to be sunk. Be afraid Mr Snake, BE VERY AFRAID! I'm really looking forward to catching up with him and finding out if he's as mad as I think he is. I'll see if I can take some pics to share with you.

Later gators.

P.S. If there are any questions you would like me to ask him or if there's anything you want me to find out about him... let me know and I'll do my best *giggles*


  1. that must have been a teeny bit scary but at least he knocked.

    Needless to say I am very jealous of mr snake I don't need to tell you to have fun. Have a drink in memory of absent friends please and then find out if his snake is really white

  2. Hang on, he broke you door???? Like...actually broke in???

    Motherfucker'd be turfed out on his arse if it was my door. "Here, y'can have the shed - and be thankful!"

  3. I'm with Mutters...That shit does just not get it!!!
    He can sleep on the porch!

  4. Oh ... My ... God ... This is my biggest fear, to be relaxing in the bath (with door open because cats like to keep me company) and a man walks in.

    He might be a good friend but to just break in???

    You are a very forgiving person. I hope he was on his knees kissing your toes and thanking you very much.


  5. Karen I am surprised you did not hit him over the head with a bottle or something. I would have been spraying anything I could in his eyes while ripping off his eyes, arms, hair, and anything I could get my hands on lol.

  6. and I hear a good time was had by all when the old Whitesnake came visiting........ not to sure if your hubby bringing out the whisky was a good idea though lol

  7. Just come to say hello
    I would have banged him on the head. What a silly man.
    Ah a snake entering NZ. Slithering too Auckland and again passes Christchurch. Bagger Have fun I will drink one on you guys

  8. Hope all is well Karen. Been missing you.

  9. We had a toast to absent friends. As for finding out if his snake is white...I would be too scared to ask :)

  10. M - He actually did!

    G - I'm too much of a push over.

    MD - I honestly dont think he thinks he did anything wrong. Strange if you ask me.
