What A Week!

What a horrible week I have had. It started wonderfully on Sunday, which was my birthday. I had a lovely lunch by the river with my daughter and her boyfriend and spent the evening playing with my birthday present....a gorgeous purple laptop. Thank you to the family who all chipped in. Then Monday arrived and I went down with a horrendous cold - headache, temperature and chesty cough. Luckily, I had booked the week off. If the cold was not enough, my boiler was booked for a service on the Tuesday and the engineer found that it was not firing properly and needed a new part so turned it off, leaving me with no hot water!!! Thank heavens I have an electric shower. Wednesday passed without any problems and then came Thursday! I was booked to have a new digital aerial fitted in the morning between 9am and 1pm. The fitter arrived at 12.20pm and merrily began to drill into the skirting board in order to fit the new socket when suddenly sparks flew and the electric went off. It would appear the Council have run wiring behind the skirting. AAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH....... He called for an electrician who thankfully put things right very quickly but in doing so, managed to cause more sparks which burnt a large hole in my net curtains. The fitter has offered to pay for a new one. I think I would have preferred a different way to get a new curtain.

So, Friday is here and (fingers crossed) so far so good.

Having had such a horrible week, I thought I would post a card I made for my cat loving friend's birthday. I hope you like it and look forward to your comments.


The paper is Basic Grey Porcelain taken from a 6"x6" paper pad, mounted onto black card and inked around the edges. The stamp is a Lelo Design from Stampavie by Nancy Hain, mounted on two sizes of Nestabilities. The embellishments are small black pearls. I have coloured the image with distressed inks.

Bye, bye for now.
