Good morning lovely peeps,
Today is my last day of relative peace as tomorrow hubby starts his holiday from work and is off for 18 days, yes 18! Oh lord that's 18 days of complaining every time I get my hoover out, 18 days of sport on TV, 18 days of extra mess, bless his heart lol. It's a ridiculous amount of days off, 7 is lovely I can do 7, after 10 he's really getting under my feet & on my nerves saying he's bored & that's a word I don't do & have never understood there is always far too much to do to get bored, but 18 days for goodness sake he'll be getting on his own nerves by then lol. Please keep your fingers crossed for lovely weather for me, I mean for him so he can jump on his beloved Harley & go off on his long rides which for some strange reason he loves doing & I can hoover to my hearts content lol.
Today is new challenge day at

The picture below I've added especially for our lovely Dawn as she was concerned about my lack of "trademark sparkle" in the DT blog lol. Blogger wouldn't let me back in there to say "click the piccy Dawn" and this one shows the sparkle quite well so Dawn pop your specs on & click the pic lol.
The fancy corner is from ecrafts and I've again covered it with picket fence crackle paint as I don't like the gold one's I bought so they have all been painted to disguise that garish gold colour rather than throw them away

A big thank you to the lovely Jo for letting me know she is having exactly the same blogger problem, it's always good to know you aren't alone as it means it's definitely not my laptop or internet connection, & thanks so much for the suggestions for overcoming it, so far nothing is working but I'll keep trying.
Thanks for stopping by
