frustrating thursday

oh god such a day in work, too much to go into here but i am fit to be tied. sick of working my arse off and still expected to perform miracles. very frustrated!!!

other than that the day wasnt too bad, i woke up really tired this morning, i think i have too much on but it keeps me busy, OH even said that to me last nite that i needed to slow down. I also need to go back to the doctor as my heart is starting that funny pulsing again and I'm not sure if its due to doing too much or what. He had told me to come back to get bloods taken so I might go visit him next week. I have a busy day tomorrow making cards for the sale so I am taking it easy tonite chilling by the fire and watching a bit of telly, gonna treat myself to a piece of apple tart soon and a cuppa.

the cat that we have officially adopted i have decided to christen roger, well rog for short, our own cat seems comfortable enough in his company although she still hisses at him just to let him know who's the boss around she has dissapeared since late last nite and has not come home since, although it is raining out so no doubt we will hear her at the window soon, she hates the rain. she is so spoilt its unbelievable!!

anyway thats all my ranting over for now, thanks for reading...

It's the hump of the week...'s wednesday, getting closer to the weekend. Boy what a morning its been for me. To cut a long story short couldnt find the key of my car this morning after spending half an hour looking for it realised i had left it in a pocket of one of my coats that i rarely wear. Went to park my car and the machine swallowed the only euro i had, then came home and went to get OH lunch the clock in the car said 1.00pm he comes home at 1.15pm ran in got his roll and came home to look at the clock and find out that it was only forgot to put the clock back an hour in the car...jees i could have cried!! OH phsl at me when i rang him and told him. let's hope thats it for the day, i have my cardmaking class tonite and we are making xmas cards so hope nothing goes wrong for that.

i didnt get a chance to make any cards today, got some xmas cards made last nite and staying with my friend tonite cos her hubby is away for work so wont get any done tonite either. tomorrow i should get a few more done and friday cos not working need to have a good few done for the sale as i am donating a few cards to it. so hoping to have about 15 only 12 more to make so no pressure!!

not much else to write about, i received my half price goodies from craft factory, and im looking at the lovely xmas magnolias that are for sale on cardz n scrapz. i have to stop buying crafty stuff, i have to get my new card on the road soon and need money for that.

I have started making xmas cards, my mojo for the old xmas cards was gone there for a few days but I think it has returned. I have made 3 cards in I know not many but its a start, 2 of them are for a sale that I am donating the cards to, still have a long way to go cos plan on making up about 5 packs of cards with 5 cards in each pack and let the people running the sale decide what way they want to sell them. If they sell But at least it is a bit of advertising from me.

Today is pretty miserable kinda hazy and wet looking out, no rain yet thankfully. We finally figured out last night that we don't have mickey mouse in our room that the noises we were hearing were coming from the attic above us, so Clive decided to point out to me this morning at 5am, so I reckon we could have Mickey's close cousing Roger Rat in the attic. The poor cat was getting the blame for bringing in the mouse and she was innocent...this time.

Not sure if I mentioned that we have fostered another cat, it arrived here about 3 weeks ago and hasnt left since. We were giving it bread and milk but then I decided the poor mite should have some decent cat food so bought her some last night in the shopping, our own moggy doesnt seem to mind her too much, although there is a bit of hissing from her when she sees her at first but she does seem happy enough in her company. Think her nose might be a little out of joint as she gets all our attention, I swear it's like having children!! lol.

Anyway thats as much news as I have today, oh was talking to another friend of mine and she told me she is pregnant,. bloody hell its catching, let's hope it doesnt come my way for a little bit at least not till we get the house finished!

Thats it, talk soon.

Monday, Monday

hi all,

didnt get a chance to post yesterday as we were busy checking out garage doors, the guy we went down to was a nutter, i couldnt understand a word he said, had a real strong tipperary accent.

Brought the gift basket up to my friend and she absolutely loved it, she wanted to know where I bought told her i had made it and she was over the moon, kept hugging It was so weird to see them both with a baby they have moved on a bit further in their life now and that feels a bit strange but we will get there eventually. He is such an adorable little boy and they look soooo happy, I'm delighted for them. I have to stay with her on Wednesday night cos her hubby has to go away for work, she told me that Dean is waking every 2 and a half hours so that should be fun!!



My car is going for the NCT today so hopefully it will pass and I can sell it on and get the new car on the road. Not much else planned for the day, have to work from 3-6pm back to the grindstone after last week off for the midterm, but xmas is coming and I'm getting excited. Not sure if I will fit in any crafty work today as I have to prepare myself for the classes on Wednesday we are starting xmas cards!!

productive saturday

hi all,

well today i sat down and made the baby boy card for my friend, i am over the moon with it, it is the best card i have made since i started card making. i hope she is going to like it. i also have to make up her gift basket today so think i will tackle that next, i was going to make some xmas cards but bit tired, as the baby card took me most of the morning to do, between feeding my cat, making dinner for OH and sorting out the washed clothes.

our bloody cat is so spoilt its unbelievable, when i was here this morning starting the card she decided to wake up from her slumber and come for some snuggles (that normally means, feed me!) she kept purring and purring at me and walking over the keyboard of my lappie until i had to give in, she is unbelievable, but wouldnt be without her. Yesterday she decided to have a nap on the fish tank, got a pic of that to and will post it up along with the others. She is a right scamp!

will post up a pic of the finished gift basket and the card later this evening, gonna keep ye in suspense for a its a cold cold day today and that sky out there is very like snow, i have the heating on but cant seem to warm my tootsies up. I have to go up town later and dont really want to face the cold but will wrap up and do my jobs as quick as i can.

talk later.
