Not very happy!

I am not a very happy bunny. I went to grandads bungalow last night so my friend Stewart could try and fix the patio door for me. The journey itself took nearly 2 hours even though it is only an hours drive away. In that time we sat in loads of traffic, and drove though so many different weather conditions. It started off clear, then we hit that heavy rain, then fog, then that horrible fine wet rain which is a pain in the back side as you cant see the car in front of you and we also drove through snow. So all in all the journey was one of all weathers.
When we arrived i pulled up at the garage, straight away you could see where someone had tried to break into the garage, as the padlock bar was more or less hanging off. As i looked more closly i noticed that not only had they broke off the padlock they had also tried to get in the key bit by jamming a screwdriver in it. I am relieved they didnt get in there as that is where my dolls house is, and if that had been damaged i think it would have killed me.
So we got out the car and walked up the back path to the door, at first glance you would think it was all ok, only when you got closer you saw that it was only propped up as a deterant. In i go whilst stewart starts fixing the door, as soon as i walked in i knoew someone had been in the bungalow since i left the weekend before last. When i leave i always close all the doors, to keep the heat in each room. Well everydoor was open. On closer inspection i then notice that the aircon unit which i had left in the front room had gone. This has made me very angry as i left that there until i could get someone in to fill in the big hole in the wall which was made to put the aircon pipe out. The plan was to then take the aircon unit home for me. Now it has gone. I know who must have taken it as there are only a few people with keys to the bungalow.
Rant over, better get on with some

Another weekend

Well i have been a bit quiet as i havent been up to much really. The cough and cold has eased up loads now, and i am honeslty still feeling shattered. that could be a number of reasons though.
Yesterday i had to work a compulsory 3 hours in the office, when i got a call from my neighbour who lives next door to grandads bungalow. He called to let me know that someone had tried breaking in. Talk about a shock to the system. Well it turns out that who ever it was didnt manage to get into the bungalow, just managed to bugger up the patio door, taking it off its runner, and they broke the padlock off the garage. So am not a happy bunny. There isnt much that can be done though as we have no idea when it was done.
Today i managed to finish the star book that mum asked me to make for my sisters 21st which is thursday. So that was a result. I havent managed to finish her scrapbook though, so looks like that will be a xmas pressie, if i can get it done in
Catch ya soon.

Busy Bee

Well the flu has taken hold big style today, and i am feeling terrible, i mean really rough. I managed to go into work this morning to get my daily bits done, had a meeting with one of the directors and then asked if i could come home. Only asked cos the lovely girls on docrafts kept bugging me as they said i shouldnt be in cos of how ill i am. They know how bad it is cos they have all had it themselves, they are a good bunch - if a bad influance when it comes to stash buying. The main person there is sue love you really sue.
Luckly they said yeah, so i finished off my bits and came home. I got in and couldnt sleep so i decided to be productive and go to the shed to finish off an order i got before i went away. I also had 2 cards left to make for image swap cards on the docrafts forum. I am pleased with the outcome of the cards. The male birthday card i am not sure on but the girls on docrafts asure me its cool.
I have attached the cards in a slide show, hope you like.
Well i am off now as i think i need some sleep.

Cards made today

Friendship Swap Card

Well i have managed to get out to my shed this evening to make my friendship swap card for the monthly swap over on do crafts website. I have been naughty and running very late with this, i am normally on the ball and they are normally made weeks in advance, but because of my holiday and my dodgy back i havent managed to do it.
I used a penny black stamped image which someone from docrafts kindly sent me in an image swap a couple of months back. This is coloured in using WH Smiths water colour pencils. I layered this onto orange card, attaching pearl brads into the four corners. this was then put on a pearlised card using foam pads to make it 3d. I also used some glitter glue added this to the watering can water and the centre of the flowers. this hasnt shown up too well on my picture though.

Today i have come down with this poxy cough and cold that has been going about, and it has made me feel yucky, thats why i only managed to get one card made today.

Well i am off to bed, the late night last night has made me feel shattered today.

Well I have finally decided to take the plunge and do a blog, this is mostly going to be about my interest in crafting, but i will probably waffle loads to help add to
This weekend has been a manic one for me. Yesterday I went to Broadstairs to show Kevin & Natalie how to manage an accounts book for their driving school they are starting. It was a long day. Fortunately my boss was also going there to fit up some plasma screens at their shop so i managed to blag a lift. All went well and we managed to get the cash book agreeing to the bank statement so all good there.
Today I had to go to my grandads bungalow. You see my nan and grandad both passed away last year, nan in February and Grandad in September, and i was left the executor. So i needed to move a few things about, well mainly my dolls house needed to be moved from the next door neighbours house to my grandads garage, as i don't have room for it in my craft shed at the moment. After we moved it we then popped to Romford for a lil bit of retail therapy, well if you can all clothes shopping for winter jumpers retail therapy then so be
The plan was to spend the rest of the day sorting out my craft shed. Since i have moved all my craft bits out there i haven't managed to get them into any kind of order, so that was the plan. I had ordered some storage boxes from Arty Miss and thought it was time i used them. I started to sort the shed out, then mum called me in for dinner, then i couldn't be bothered to go Oh well another day tomorrow, well another evening i guess.
I should really be in bed, but you know when you have had one of them weekends, even though you feel shattered when you get to bed you just cant drift off. So i decided to come and make a lemsip to help with my cough cold etc, and check my emails. Then i decided to start this blog.
Is it a mistake i can hear myself thinking. Well i don't know the answer to that just yet as this is only my first
Plan for this week craft wise - i need to make and send a card with images to 2 lovely ladies on the docrafts website, as well as a friendship card for the swap. I have been naughty and fallen behind with these since my holiday. I also need to get my backside in gear and get my sisters birthday pressie finished for her 21st which is only 11 days away. omg, i got problems there. i need to make her birthday card from me and mum also wants me to make her one from her.
Looks like i got my work cut out for me, as i also have some commission cards to make as well.
Well i am gonna disappear now.
Be back soon.
