Well what a week I've had since we spoke last. On Tuesday last I had a dispute with my slippers, the left one decided to grip the floor but my knee decided to move anyway. I had the most excruciating pain in my knee and ended up on the floor, so for the 1st part of the week I was resting it in bed with supports and lots of pain killers which made me sleep a lot.Hence why I didn't reply to you all, and by the time I was up and hobbling I thought you wouldn't return to read them. So Please accept my apologies and I'll try not to be so slack in the future. PROMISE!
On Saturday I went to see Swan Lake with Claire. Paul drove us to the theatre & picked us up afterwards as I couldn't have driven. If you had filmed me climbing up into the car you would have got £250 from you've been framed, what a farce. After taking a couple of strong painkillers, Claire & I had an absolutely fab evening. It was just very special spending time together doing something that we really enjoy. As we were waiting to get out of the isle she said Merry Christmas mum and gave me a big kiss and a hug. Perfect ending to a lovely day. After dropping a very tired Claire home, Paul thought he would top the day by taking me out for a meal. We ended up at a burger van, and had a mushroom cheese burger & chips at mid-night. How romantic, when we looked at each other we had tomato sauce around our chops. Romantic or what!!
Latest on the Platinum:- I rang the shop as asked , and was told the machine had arrived with him and said it would be sent out Friday afternoon and I would get it Saturday or Monday latest. Today ( Monday) at 3.55pm I rang to say it hadn't arrived only to be told "they" had sent the wrong machine and he was waiting for the platinum to be delivered this week sometime. ENOUGH NOW! I really wanted to blow by this time but very calmly asked for a refund, and he said he was doing the refund while I was on the phone. I only hope he was telling the truth, I'm sure he was.. I'll check with the bank tomorrow. So if anyone knows where I can get a good deal on a Platinum machine, I'm all ears.
It's Claire Baby shower this weekend. She knows she's having one but doesn't know when or where. I have been making crackers with hats & treats inside, goody bags to take home, and filling miniature baby bottles with sweets for gifts for the games Anthea has planned. I made a cute little pram bunting to hang over one of the doors, but when I went in my workroom this morning there were 2 really guilty looking kitties and 2 chewed little prams and the bunting was on the floor. So needless to say they are banned from my room until party day is over. Their sad little faces has almost made me give in but NO!, cute or not they are banned.
Before you all fall asleep after this long blog. This is my penultimate card for Creative Expressions. My contract ends with them on the 14th Feb. It's normally a year but I've had 18 months with them, and have very much enjoyed my time with them. Next week on the 9th Feb will be my last card with them. Good News though, or I hope you think so. I will still do my Tuesday cards but I will be using all my other dies that have laid dormant over this time. I don't say the cards will be any better, just more variation on products. So, that's all my news this week. I hope you will still visit my blog after the 9th as blog life will keep on going here. See you same time same place next week.
Hope you liked it!
