hee hee, I swear IT's SOO EASY! History:- We have been discussing buying a large LCD TV for over 6 months now ( it's a LARGE purchase and we will always debate on those for months-LOL)- but this is something OBVIOUSLY the men in my family have been hankering about for ages- imagine the RUGBY, OOOh mom- imagine a GOOD dvd- wada wada wada wada- LOL. Ok- I admit that even though I don't watch a lot of TV as such the rugby and the movie DOES sound good-KWIM?- and yeah my family KNOW how to pull my strings WELL!~ Anyway- we were waiting for the full HD ( high definition LCD's) to arrive as they will be changing our broadcasts to that in Nov ( yup we are still behind-LOL) so we wouldn't have to spend EXTRA upgrading anything- Well they are here and on Saturday were on SALE!
ROTF!! OMG- you have to see a MAN hear the word SALE at an electronics shop- he's worse than me when I hear SALE on Scrapping Goods- hahahahahaha. So off we go and get the whole low down on the resolutions, the update times, the etc etc etc's! (sheee's I learnt quite a bit about TV's let me tell you)- My man comes home and spends 4 HOURS on the net comparing all the makes etc to see if this is a GOOD buy and finds out it IS!- we're off on Sunday like a bat out of hell, I hardly had time to wipe the sleep out my eyes! And YUP- lucky us they have in STOCK!
We buy it( now paying for it was a little more of a challenge for me-hahaha- I held onto the money a little longer than was polite- WAHAHA)- pack it in the car with Nathan sitting on my LAP- yeah the thing filled the back of the car with the seats DOWN!- the men are babbling away about how they are going to be watching it by 3pm that afternoon(it was just on 1pm now)! UHUM- by 4 pm they had just managed to take down my old TV unit and put up the new one with all the doodads! LOL. WHEEEEEE, now it's time for the BIG BOX!(excuse the pun) and its excitement that is making Nathan sound like a runaway train! They put it up on the stand to check it out first - turn it on- and SILENCE- DEAD SILENCE- WAHAHAHAHAHAHA, that from Nathan and Wayne both! Then there is *beep beeep beeeep beeep* coming from Waynes mouth and both my men look like they are going to burst into TEARS! The screen had a pixel run right down the middle ( looks like a paint drip or stocking ladder)- I wish I could explain just how the MOOD changed in that ONE second! They then had to repack the whole thing BACK in the box as this was Sunday and the shop had closed- LOL, which meant re-connecting the little TV again and putting the huge box back in my car ( yeah- I had to return it yesterday to exchange it!)
BUT- the NEW one was perfect ( apparently this is a normal problem with all LCD TV's- blah!)~ and last night we watched a MOVIE on it - WHEEEEEEEEEEEE, I felt like I was in the movie house;-)
Phew- I'm in a yakking mood again today-LOL
Girl Renovating is HARD and Messy work and I hear you- LOL. We still doing it and it's been over 2 years!! - LOVE LOVE LOVE your LO- thank you!
Don't forget DSO is having a DESIGNER CALL- all the details are listed below here-
Want to join a MAD AND HAPPY bunch of designers ~ send a mail ASAP to the above addy.
And my wonderful CT member and fellow South African Renee had been extracting flowers and leaves- WOOOHOOOO, she sent them to me to use as a freebie- but instead of leaving them just as REAL blooms I am playing with them-LOL
I made these into a Watercolour flower and leaf - there is NO drop shadow on the original PNG's- just for preview purposes. they have glittery centres too. http://www.4shared.com/file/46603363/bf99bd23/kb-Reneesbloom_1.html Thanks so much Renee- MWAH! I hope you like what I've done with them.
Well I better get off here and get some work done- LOL. Sending big hugs and loves Kim
