Like summer vacation, but without the vacation part

I'll be taking some time off from the blog circuit for the next week or two, as I have doctor's appointments and tests for me and the sprogs, and I need to get the kids' room sorted out so that we can finally start to get the Nestling Sparrow out of our room and into the other room with the Fledgling Sparrow. That will involve stripping and repainting a bed, cleaning the carpet, painting, renovating, and boxing up two tons of crap, not to mention the wailing and gnashing of teeth on my part.

I also need to sort out all the crap my parents dumped on me when they downsized, sort stuff for a yard sale, patch and paint our bedroom, clean the upholstery in the living room, and.... Well, you get the idea. I've been feeling a tad better lately, so I figure I should get stuck in before the weather gets too hot to be able to do anything (we only have a swamp cooler for the house), or my healthy spell wears off.

So, posting will be sporadic to non-existent, along with me making the blog rounds to all of yours. I'll try to sneak in to visit you lot whenever I have some spare time.

If you simply cannot bear not knowing when my next post will come out, you can scroll down in my side bar to sign up for Feedburner e-mail notification when a new post is up. And I can still be reached by e-mail, of course, if anyone needs to get a hold of me.

Fat Sparrow

Domestic work is it? Cleaning and tarting things up. Oh well... got to be done, I suppose. Is the Spouse any good for this carry on or has he to bugger off out of your way with the young chicks?

Fearfink said...

Oh christing hell. If you do that, it means I've got to sort out the cunting storage I'm paying for every month and actually need to get back out, sort through, Ebay, then gloss the ALL woodwork downstairs, tile the kitchen, clean the sitting room carpet etc etc ad nauseam. Are you sure you can't put it off for a bit ? Please ?

Now you've made me feel guilty. I'm having a rare day off in the week today and keep looking at all the housework that needs to be done ... but continue reading other people's blogs. We'll miss you (even if you are barking mad) so I hope you get everything done soon.

Manuel said...

Stay well, I'm avoiding the obvious nesting jokes.

Gale said...

I hope you get lots of help with all of your tasks but most of all hope you stay well as I am enjoying your blog.

Take good care darling.

Translation: "I'm making Spouse Sparrow do loads of shit around the house and I'm gonna take time off blogging so I can remind him how he's doing everything wrong."

Xul said...

"That will involve stripping and repainting a bed,"

Is that a new euphemism for shagging? or do you normally do housework in the buff? I guess you would stay much cooler that way.

Anyway, hop to it and get back to all of us ASAP!

FN -- "Well fine.

But, but, but.... It was you that inspired me! What with painting your house, and all!

Annie -- "Goodbye and good luck, see you again soon."

What, you're not volunteering to help?

Conan -- "Domestic work is it? Cleaning and tarting things up. Oh well... got to be done, I suppose."

I've been putting it off since I got sick, so it's really piled up.

"Is the Spouse any good for this carry on or has he to bugger off out of your way with the young chicks?"

The Fledgling Sparrow, who was supposed to help me, buggered off to her grandparents. The Spouse Sparrow will be wrangling El Boyo Loco, who has a fierce desire to "help."

Fearfink -- "Oh christing hell.

Conveniently enough for you, I have yet to do fuck all s of yet, except to go for doctor's appointments, as I seem to have come down with a bug. Consider yourself reprieved.

Medbh -- "Bummer, Fat Sparrow. Nestwork is no fun. Hope it stays cool for you at any rate. Be well!"

Thank you!

Haden -- "ah fuck off you can t just piss of now that i start coming all over your webshite, fuckin hell. all them other webshites are crap anyaywas, except that Adey lad he seems like a good lad, maybes you shoudl put up your tits while your having a rest, keep me little lad ticking over and that"

The phrase "What have you done for me lately" seems to come to mind. Grab a paintbrush, and I'll leave my bra off.

PD -- "yeah, what first nations said! so what time are you coming to help me do everything you posted about? you know, sorting, painting, packing, selling, gnashing teeth?"

Hahaha, you are funny for a white girl.

Savannah -- "well hell, sugar...now i'm feeling guilty about the state of my house.....but i'm sure it will pass! or i'll have another drink and forget all about it... what was i talking about?"

You were going to pass me one of what you're having.

Gimme -- "this is not the cunt-fest post i had hoped for. fuck everything under the bed/couch and come back soon."

Sorry, I'll try to get cracking on that "State of the Minge" address.

AMKT -- "Now you've made me feel guilty. I'm having a rare day off in the week today and keep looking at all the housework that needs to be done ... but continue reading other people's blogs. We'll miss you (even if you are barking mad) so I hope you get everything done soon."

Thanks. A mom's work is never done.

Manuel -- "Stay well, I'm avoiding the obvious nesting jokes."

Thanks!

Gale -- "I hope you get lots of help with all of your tasks but most of all hope you stay well as I am enjoying your blog."

Thank you!

FMC -- "Take good care darling."

Thank you!

NiolK -- "Translation: "I'm making Spouse Sparrow do loads of shit around the house and I'm gonna take time off blogging so I can remind him how he's doing everything wrong."

He gave you a tenner to say that, didn't he?

Xul -- ""That will involve stripping and repainting a bed," Is that a new euphemism for shagging? or do you normally do housework in the buff? I guess you would stay much cooler that way. Anyway, hop to it and get back to all of us ASAP!"

I sometimes sit at the computer naked. Just because I can.

I'll wait for you all to try to burn that image out of your mind's eye.











Ha.
