I've been really busy lately and have several projects on the go, none of them finished (that is so typically me - I start something then if it takes too long I lose momentum and leave it hanging around for days) so have nothing exciting to post about.
We are however, expecting visitors from Spain tomorrow so am trying to get my guest bedroom all nice and welcoming.
I've been hearing a lot of practial jokes today so thought I would share with you my funniest April Fool's trick ever. My mother is quite gullible so a few years ago I got a male colleague to phone her telling her he was from the phone company and asking her if she ever had crackling on the line when she made a phonecall (I already knew that she did). He was really good and kept a straight face the whole time telling her that this was because of leaves and debris getting into the tubes carrying the phone cables to her house. He asked her to get a refuse sack/garbage bag to go over the phone's handset so that from his end they could use machinery to blow the leaves and debris out through her phone and he wanted to minimise the mess in her house. By now my mother was on loudspeaker and everyone in work was hysterical as my mother put the phone down then came back to tell him she had a bag. At this point he cracked up and my mother caught on! She thumped him (good naturedly) next time she saw him!
