I love dyeing my hair in many colours. Not all of it, I usually dye the tips, or the underside. This time, the underside has been turned deep purple! My tips are still turquoise, which gives a really cool effect. If you feel like dyeing your hair, I can really recommend the brand Directions. No ammonia, lovely colours, and quite cheap too. It’s semi permanent, though, so you’re gonna have it for a while.
Summer is coming up, and last week the freebie bunch was beach inspired. This time, they’re camping inspired! I’m hoping to go camping some time this summer. You guys have any plans for summer yet?
I’m really looking forward to sunny days where you only need to put on shoes and your sunglasses before you go outside, going for an icecream while listening to the birds singing. Can’t wait! It’s looking good though, the sun is out most of the time with temperature almost reaching over 10 degrees celcius. We’re getting there! Therefor, this week’s bunch of freebies are summer inspired. 😀
We just came back from an awesome easter dinner at mom’s. Great as usual. We skipped the regular easter food and instead had cheese and ham pie. Om nom nom! And some pickled herring of course. Can’t skip that.
This week was tough but fun. We had a masquerade at work last monday, which was great! I was a pirate. Somehow the kids thought I looked like a dragon. That’s way cooler though, so it’s fine. On thursday we had easter lunch for the kids, always great (but messy)! What did you guys do for easter?
As you might have noticed we’ve had some troubles with the connection, that sometimes you couldn’t get contact with Opal Manor. We think the problems are solved now, but if you notice that the connection goes bad again, please notify us so we can try to fix it!
Here comes this week’s bunch of freebies! Enjoy, and don’t forget to poooost what you make! E-mail it to me or something, I’d love to see it. Maybe put something that’s popping out of that cracked egg…? Toodeloo!
Things have not improved so the coming days there will be some downtime while I try some things. Sorry about that.
We’ve been having some connectivity issues the last week and I’ve not been able to pinpoint the source of the problem. Our ISP demands a silly dance for them before they will escalate the matter to the level where they actually check if anything is wrong on their side (yes, really. They won’t even check their logs until the customer does a long list of things). To do this I would need to disconnect the server that runs Opal Manor for a whole day, needless to say that I’m not thrilled with this.
It might come to this but in the mean while I hope you guys have patience while I try some more things to find out where the source of the trouble is. If we need to take Opal Manor offline for a day there will be information here and on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/opalmanor).
IF YOU CAN’T CONNECT to opal manor: Try again in a few minutes. The problem symptom is that our internet connections goes down for between 30 seconds and 3 minutes. I’ve not been able to get how frequently this happens so if you want to help, please send us a mail or answer this post with the time you experienced any problems reaching the site.
Again, we’re really sorry about this and doing everything we can to fix it.
Yay! I love Easter. It gives me spring feelings. Although it is snowing today, the past week has been sunny and warm, and flowers popping up everywhere!
Yesterday we went to the movies and saw Insurgent. 😀 I’ve longed for it for a year. It was good, but as with all trilogies, the second movie is often just transportation. Looking forward to the last movie! I hope they don’t split it in two though…. #HungerGames #HarryPotter #forcryingoutloud
We also just finished our annual meeting for our local Pirate Party. This year will be full of fun, with a slightly new board as well. No matter how heavy politics can be, I think I’m an addict, haha. I’ll never stop!
This week’s freebie bunch is easter and spring inspired. The flower is a crocus flower, one of the very first to pop up here during spring. When it comes, you know spring is here! It comes in purple, yellow and white, and they’re really pretty.
Argh! The Harry Potter geek in me got the bestest present ever last weekend. Jim gave me a handmade (one-of-a-kind) wand, Harry Potter style! More precisely, Hufflepuff style. It’s soooo cool, and sooo pretty, and I really want to go to some convention or dressup party or something so that I can wear it. It even comes with a holster! 😀 I have the bestest husband. <3
My wand. 😀
Spring is finally coming on. Sunshine, temperature on the plus side of the centigrade marker, and flowers popping up here and there. How’s the weather where you are? Spring coming yet? Unless you’re in Australia, I guess, then you’re waiting for winter now. I don’t feel envious of you. I love spring and Easter and summertime! 😀
Here comes this week’s freebie bunch. Some Harry Potter geekery in it. Also, I came across this lovely article at Useless Trinkets. It’s so awesome to see my digis being used, and words like that warm my heart! I really like what she did with the monkey too. 😉 So I’ve made another monkey as thanks! Ook!
