1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Classic British Kids TV swap [SIGN-UPS CLOSED Send out 25th Nov] on: December 22, 2006 01:08:45 PM
I've received a fantastic parcel today from Safetyfox, I'm going to try to get pictures taken tonight before I zoom off doing the cross country tour of relative visiting. Should I post the piccies here? it seems a bit silly to create a gallery for the 2 of us.

I've PM'd Safetyfox too with my huge apologies for my rubbishness. I'm late posting my swap, (and finishing it) but I promise I'll get it all sent off as soon as I can.

that's one of things that makes listening to Arctic Monkeys so fun! lol.   Grin
I grew up about 3 miles down the road from the Arctic Monkeys and I sound Nothing like them. A lot of my friends were from the same town as them, and they sound nothing like them either. I haven't a clue where they got their accent from.
They're from a small town to the north of Sheffield, if you want to know what a proper Sheffield accent sounds like then listen to Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, (listen to them anyway they're great.)

Annoyingly though because the Arctic Monkeys are cool people from Sheffield are starting to talk like them and it just sounds weird. The same thing happened when Oasis got famous, suddenly every Mancunian suddenly developed a much stronger accent and they all started walking funny. Smiley

Ohh I hope to get everything done long before 3 weeks are up. Do you still want to PM me your Mum's address so the parcel doesn't end up stuck outside your house?

Thankyou! I've wanted kids for so many years, but the timing has never been right, finally it is, and we're so chuffed... just a bit scared, none of our friends have kids so we're doing a lot of reading.

I think swaps tend to put a jinx on my life.
The last time I did a swap I planned to do everything when I had a week off for my birthday, and for a friends wedding, but then also in that week I became an aunt, found out a friend had committed suicide and went to his funeral.
So although this week has been an emotional rollercoaster it's nothing compared to that week... although my hormones are a bit more haywire now.

Not quite as organised as Safetyfox. Been a bit of a manic week. My neighbour died on Friday which knocked me for 6. I've let Safetyfox know.
What I haven't let her know cos I've only found out in the last couple of days is that I'm pregnant.
So when I come down from cloud 9, and I've sorted out doctors appointments, and the phone stops ringing, I'll get stuck into crafting again. Smiley

I'll have to get my Mum to dig out that Blue Peter Annual with the instructions for making Arthur and Evil Edna.  Smiley

A shame we couldn't get more people interested, especially as I've found that if you stick a few people of a similar age together that within a relatively short space of time they'll end up talking about kids TV.
The swapping should be fun anyway. Looking forward to getting the info.

Ohh I might be up for this, I'm sure some people want something from the UK.
I'll have to rack my brains about what things I've seen from other countries that I'd like, I keep meaning to make a list of stuff but I've a terrible memory. I know crochet magazines are on there, every country seems to have them except the UK.

I call them fizzy drinks, or pop, or fizzy pop if I'm being really childish (most of the time). If someone called them cokes I'd be very confused. I'm sure there's other names we use in the UK but I'm tired and brain dead.

Also, I love the word que. Very Brit.
Except it's a queue  Smiley
British people are notorious for standing in them... if there's a queue for something we'll join it, well it's bound to be something good at the other end...
the amount of times I've joined the back of a long queue, only to find it was for the wrong thing, and the thing I wanted didn't have a queue.

My father-in-law calls the couch the Chesterfield.

Well my settee is a chesterfield style (low, rounded top, arms same height as sides, lots of studs, made of leather) so I'd understand that one.
Odd... but I'd understand it.
