Temporary Break in Transmission

So I would LOVE to show you my finished Colette pattern dress that I have been waiting to have a photographer on hand for and the progress I have made on the gorgeous fabric I showed off last year, but I can't as the love of my life - who for the rest of this post shall be called the idiot - dropped our camera in the duck pond this morning. Quite an effort really considering he was standing at least 3 feet from it. Apparently he was cleaning it - well it is real clean now! He asked if he should dive in and get it. I should of said yes just to of made him pay. I didn't as I am a nice girl. Look forward to next week's fun theme of Victorian Duck Bums, the best very clean pictures all week.

Well I hope that you will be joining the duck bums Flickr pool, to show off those fabbo underwater snaps.

Hmmm, I think he should have jumped in to save it!!!

So frustrating! OUr camera has gone missing and we borrowed my mum's which has now stopped working. We are cursed! I feel your pain.

How dare he ask! He should have just jumped in. Dived in, in fact. Doesn't he know how important a camera is to a blogger. How did the camera even make it into his grubby little mitts anyway. Maybe it was sabotage. Maybe it's a cry for help - what about me? Thanks for the story - I laughed and laughed! xx

I'm so sorry, don't be too hard on him.....it's the kind of thing I'd do. And I'd feel terrible for ages after!

Oh no :(

You know, I worked for a guy once who in some areas was quite the genius, but when he dropped his electronic organiser into a pond, then put it in the microwave to "dry it out"!

He he he... They are not really good with delicate things sometimes are they?! Last time my 'idiot' did that, he dropped it in a pan of apricot chicken. It stank for weeks!
