Cruelly Duped!!!!

To quote the song, (somewhat badly, to suit the purpose of our melancholia ……. )  “What kind of fools are we?”
April Fool 2012
We are totes, totes deflated, robustly embarrassed and soooooo cross with ourselves for not having the nounce to realise that our invitation to serve on the UK Eurovision Song Contest Voting Panel was just a seasonal April Fools jape …….. we were so wrapped up and blinkered by all the excitement,  that we failed to see the significance in the name of e-mails sender……. April Fool …………. DOH!
Baku 2012
What are we like? Could we thank everyone who tactfully tried to point out  that perhaps we had been duped, you all did it so kindly!  Darrell was a little overcome for a while and took himself off to his room for quiet reflection …..
Eurovision Song Contest 2012
But after ten minutes he was back in buoyant mood, demolishing half a packet of penguins and a couple of Jaffa Cakes  ….. saying that as April Fools went “…… that was a doooooozey!” There is no way this will spoil our enjoyment of the real event …… it’s just too brilliant!!  …… And as Darrell mused, it saves him having to learn “Hello Baku, this is the UK calling ….. can we first congratulate you on a wonderful evening ….and  now here are the results of the UK voting panel …… for Moldova …. 8 points……………..” etc. in lots of foreign languages!!

Bless, what a cruel jape! But, so good that you've bounced back boys.

I was at Marcel's for dinner yesterday evening, he sat on my lap and eyed up the 'lemon ice' cake we had for dessert. Guess what, his holey stone had broken clean in half. Is that a bad omen? I hope not as he seems very happy living at Abi's and said to be sure to say 'Allo my friends' to you! Di xx

You would have made a great judge, especially wearing your glasses.
I am sorry about the holey stone - will superglue repair the damage and stop any potential bad luck?

Glad to see the reality check hasn't dimmed your spirits and ended with good humour and Darrell's snack attack. Understandable the dream come true aspect outweighed that jester April's identity clue! But you do have caring friends and blessings akimbo all round to make your day....Dianne

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
