Tweet little hAnglar - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I have managed to hoover, yaaaaayyyyyyyy lol. You know how much I love hoovering, well I couldn't cope any longer my withdrawal symptoms were too severe lol. It was too painful to stand up and hoover normally but where there's a will there's a way, so I was on my knees hoovering with just the pipe, yes it took forever so I had a few breaks in between rooms to give poor Henry a rest I didn't want him over heating but I did it, trouble is it needs doing again now lol.

Something else I've learnt except for new ways to hoover is I should listen to more sensible friends!!!
The lovely Kate was worried it might not be safe for me to attempt crafting while so doped up on Diazepam and she could well be right!
I had planned on doing a little tutorial last week but for some strange reason I took 4 new Duracell batteries out of their box and popped them in the battery charger & switched it on, duh! They popped, they hissed and spewed a mess all down the wall and floor & I still didn't twig what I'd done, it was only when I told Jode I was going to take the batteries and charger back to the shop because they were dangerous and had blown up she pointed out why, oops lol.

I am hoping to return to normal blogging this week, it is taking me ages to make a card or leave my DT comments as I find my back pain feels better if I don't stay sat still for too long but it is feeling loads better than it did so I am going to try and have a Diazepam free day today, fingers crossed.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the very hot October sunshine if you are as lucky as us and have it
