Hello Everyone, are you in Bank Holiday Spirit?? Just another day for me, even when I was working we didn't get them off at that point but they were all included in our annual leave. However for those who are keeping the holiday I hope your are enjoying it.
I started it off with a visit to the surgery to get blood test done, hardly felt a thing, but I have to look away as I just can't stand to see the needle go in, now isn't that strange for someone who injects 4 times a day with insulin. Anyway, the results will be back for my appointment with GP next week, so just have to wait and see what if anything shows up.
Thank you so much for the very kind comments on my last card and for all the tips and commiserations regarding the dies. As for taking them back, well I would if it were just the one or two, but I'm afraid I've bought all the booby ones as most don't cut well. NO the only answer is to NOT BUY THEM.
So today's card :
Lavender Centura Pearl embossed with a Embossalisious Folder, Chains, Tattered Lace Mr & Mrs Die, WO Roses and other blooms, Ribbon and Pearls from my box.
We had a lovely walk yesterday through Culloden Woods, which is part of the Battlefield, a good few miles and I've a blister to show for it, but it was a lovely day with just a light warm breeze, and the Culloden Visitor Centre Cafe at the end of it. We both just wanted water, which they had in a jug with ice, but I bought a slice of Gingerbread, £2.65........WHAT!! I asked the girl at the till, even she was embarrassed, but said she didn't make the prices, well of course you don't I said, whilst taking two pats of butter and glaring at her. I did offer that one could make a whole Gingerbread for that price, never mind a slice. Now I know, I know, that you have to take into account, ingredients, energy costs for baking, cooks/chefs wages, etc, but £2.65. Of course Culloden Battlefield is a tourist trap, they come in bus loads and are stranded there for an hour or so, with nothing much better to do than eat and drink, but It's not fair to rip off tourists either, especially as we depend on our tourist industry.
Alistair just laughed, but then it was my turn for the treat, and he didn't pay, just as well we both wanted water and not lattes. Rant over.
Keep well everyone and see you soon,
