Last night we had a storm and look what hubby captured on camera, it was actually a movie shot but believe me it was still hard to make a still shot of it as it only came up for a split second.

Today is the first day of my sumemr holidays....yippee, although we aren't going anywhere this year due to a lot of work needing doing in the garden, it's still nice to be away from work even if it is at home. Today the sun is shining and me and hubby spent the afternoon spreading soil out on the lawn in the garden to even it out a bit as the guy who owned the house before left it all uneven, then I have just finished making a Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake, oh my cheesecake heaven or what lol, you guys have got to try and make one, I used my new Magic Bullet to make it with, (Jude knows what that is) it's a kind of blender/mixer/juicer all in one. So there ya have it a boring day in the boring life of Kate at home lol.

Hmm it would seem my pictures have all disappeared from my blog, upon checking the website I created to link the pics from, it seems it may not exist anymore, I only created it for this purpose, I never actually used it as a website. Damn I was only thinking yesterday how I have got my blog just how I want it and *poof* they are gone, I'm hoping it's a temporary thing and that they may come back otherwise I'm going to have to start all over again and if thats the case I don't know when I'll get round to it. If it wasn't for bad luck lol I wouldn't have any luck at all.

Wow all I can say about the show last night was that it totally blew me away. Vampires Rock is one awesome show and if they ever come to a venue near you I can highly recommend you go see it. Baron Von Rockula, singer of a rock group owns a club called Live and Let Die, his quest is to find a bride so he sets up an audition for a female singer for his club, enter Pandora, a naive, young, frumpy girl who really believes that she is auditioning to sing in his club, little does she know that he will cast a spell over her and transform her into the rock chic/bride he's been waiting for all these years. The show takes you back to the 80's with renditions from Queen, Guns & Roses, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Meatloaf, Billy Idol, Bonnie Tyler, Aerosmith and tons more, The Baron finally marries Pandora and then he's told he may bite the bride transforming her into a Vampire. The stage was set up to look like the inside of a vampire rock club, very goth, coffins, thunder and lightening etc and all the songs played were performed live on stage by the Baron's band and let me tell the the musicians were amazing, and as for the pyrotechnics, scared the shit outta me lol.

No camera's were allowed inside the theatre and they were very strict with this rule as I saw the ushers telling people off that were taking pictures so I didn't dare get mine out, shame really as I wanted to practice with my new camera for future events. (Hmmm which future events might that be)?

I did see this guy wearing a Slang T-shirt and let me tell you Lep fans are like rocking horse manure over here so when you spot one you have to let your presence be known lol. So I go over to him and his wife and say to him, "hey, great taste in music," pointing to his shirt. We spoke for a short while telling each other how long we have been fans and what shows we have attended etc, it was great to babble on to a complete stranger about Def Leppard and for them not to look at me half gone out thinking I was a complete and utter lune lol.

Wow it's so hot here right now, that hot in fact hubby has just been out and bought an air conditioning unit, now there's a first for us, yes I do live in the UK lol. Wish we could have a storm to clear the air, it's so muggy. I can't believe only last week I was telling Janna Boop I was gonna take a bath to warm me up cause it was so cold lol.

not zoomed in, originally uploaded by Mystkate.

Ok so I thought I would practice using the zoom feature on my camera, look in the distance in the middle of the window frames and you can just make out about 8 small square things on the horizon, its roughly about 8 - 10 miles away, then see next picture.

Yes I am still here, I just don't seem to have much to say these days lol, wish I could be more like some of you who can make everyday life so funny and entertaining for us all, but I'm not lol.

I bought a new camera yesterday, Ive been looking for this particular model for a while now but it's been too expensive so I've put off buying it until I went into town with my Mum, it was reduced from 289 pounds to 144 pounds (can't use the pound sign it shows up funny when I publish post), so my Mum being my Mum lent me the money and I am going to pay her back on Wednesday when I get paid.........bless her. If only I could figure out how to use the damn thing before our boys come to the UK, that's if they ever do this year.......sigh, anyhow Ive read the manual and it might as well be written in Swahili, rocket science would be easier lol, I'm sure I'll figure it out by then though, Ive got a show booked on Saturday night called Vampires Rock so I'll take it along and have a practice.

Our Elliott is recovering from his escape the other night although on Friday during the day I was worried I would have to take him back to the vets as he seemed really lethargic and not with it, also he was having trouble with his back end, finding it hard to stand up and lay down. He seemed to perk up a bit on Friday night esp seeing as he managed to nick the remains of my chicken fried rice off the kitchen worktop, I was thinking "Poor Elliott he must be feeling poorly he's normally sat at my feet when I'm eating" ..........hmmm poor Elliott was helping himself lol in the kitchen, there was rice everywhere. I'm just glad he's getting better as today he's been running round the garden as he was before playing with his toys.

Vampires Rock on Saturday, as I mentioned before, I don't really know what to expect, all I know is it's a musical about Vampires (obviously) which incorporates 80's rock music. Should be fun as I'm a huge vampire fan and oh did I tell you I'm a huge fan of 80's rock music too!!!!!?

Right have a great Monday everyone (ugh) and I'll see you all soon.

I would like to thank you all for your prayers and thoughts last night as our Elliott is home safe and sound although he's been through the wars a bit. Although I'm not a religious person I have come to believe that there must be someone watching over me as my prayers were answered. Hubby got up as soon as it was light this morning at 4am and drove to where he last saw him, he ventured into a wooded area and shouted him and he came running. When he brought him home he was very subdued, shaking, wet through and covered in mud and had numerous nasty grazes on his tummy, hind legs and his doggy bits with patches of fur missing, who knows what he got up to, anyway he's been to the vets and had an antibiotic & a pain killing jab and hes been cleaned up and hes back ot his usual boistrous self this evening lol. Thank you for watching over me whoever you are.

I need everyones prayers tonight as our Elliott has disappeared and its been about 4 hours since he ran off, I know he's only a dog but he's my baby and I'm so distraught right now, please come home baby. Its so out of character for him to do this, my hubby took him for a long walk about 5 miles away and let him off the lead for a run and he chased something in the bushes and never came back, we have scoured the surrounding are but haven't found him yet. Please pray he will find his way home safely.
