Hello Fellow Bloggers, are you well today? I do hope so and for those who are not so well, sending you big hugs!
I've been pretty busy over the last couple of days preparing for our holiday, trying to pin down Alistair for his clothes is painstaking to say the least. I asked him to put out what he wanted to take nice and early in case they needed freshening up, so he did that and the clothes got washed and ironed, and then got put back in his drawer, why? I asked, did you get me to wash them if your not taking them, Oh, I they've been in the drawer for a while and I thought I would just get them washed. Honestly, there's times you just want to SLAP!!
Anyway, the packing is almost done, it's only for a week after all.
I went along to see the CAB folk, and a little advice was offered, and that was to reply to the letter the Area Manager sent asking why the other points I had raised weren't mentioned. My son, who is awfully good at these things also pointed out that I should have had the minutes of the welfare meeting along with the letter, so I requested a copy of those. There were one or two other points that needed clarification as well. So it has taken me the couple of days to compose that and try to get it in the right tone. I will post it on Sunday night, and hopefully put it out of my mind and enjoy the holiday.
I met up with one of my colleagues on Wednesday, she is our part time worker I get on really well with her, she calls me her second mum, and she has a bit of a tough time of it at work, I think it's because she is so much younger than the rest of us, but of course very unfair. Anyway, she gave me a beautiful gift, and a lovely card, although she said not a patch on the ones I make. It's the though that counts.
So, I've make a Thank You card for her and after seeing the beautiful card on Sue's blog yesterday http://bearhousecreations.blogspot.co.uk/ , I decided to have a look at http://janeysdigidesigns.blogspot.co.uk/ where I found a wonderful selection of fabulous digital flower stamps. I decided to have myself a few, but one in particular really caught my eye and that was Icelandic Poppy, for obvious reasons. That said I've decided to make Thank You cards for everyone who gives me a birthday gift, so here is the one I've made for Karen;
Golden shade of Core'dinations, embossed with Flower Frenzy Embossalicious folder
Pearls, gems and ribbon from stash
Poppies sprayed with CC Spray and Sparkle in Silver
I'm really quite pleased with the outcome.
We are going through to Nairn tonight to listen to a concert given by The Inverness Mahler Players, Alistair is a fan of this composer, I can take him or leave him, although hearing something live makes all the difference. It's been a while since we have gone to a concert, so I am looking forward to it.
So before I go, I just want to thank everyone who has visited and commented on my last card, always appreciated. I'm trying to catch up with yours, and I might get a chance later tonight.
Bye for now
