I am still here....

I have been reading blogs every day but time has been at a premium over the last week or so ... topped off with a day or two indisposed with a tummy bug that has taken the stuffing out of me literally ... but all is good now. 
Which was good as today I spent the whole day being bombarded with information on
  "How  to Manage a Polling Station"   Yes!!  for my sins I have been chosen to be the Manager of our local Polling Station for 8 days ... now I am not sure how I am going to be doing with this getting up and out every morning .. and the brain is in panic mode with all this information which should not be changed in any way at all   ...  as we were told " if you think you can think of a better way to do it, think again as it's carved in stone"  you know the typical government red tape etc. etc.
So after 11 yrs in NZ,   I am doing my civil duty as they say.  Oh! by the way pays pretty good as well.

I have been reading some interesting blogs, it is amazing what you  find as you blog hop ...  each blogger has a list of the blogs they follow, and just a click brings you up something that sometimes is very surprising, amazing stitchers and patch workers but also some great gardening ones and it is so interesting to read how other people all over the world spend their free time.

One I think you may like to smile at is my Daughters over here  I just love the last few blogs especially the "Worst Parent Award" go and visit she would love to see you.

Yes I agree with Shez, and as long as you have a comfortable seat you will be able to stitch all day between voters.
