Simon Says Let's Play Bingo - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello peeps,
I totally forgot what day it is today, and have just discovered the man who phoned me from the bank waffling about my ISA who I managed to confuse no end was right, it definitely is Wednesday! The poor man said I'd confused him so much he said he doesn't even know what day it is any more or even what his name is lol.  
I was up so stupidly early & had the bright idea of starting to paint my kitchen not realising I should have been writing my blog post, & I've managed to trash the kitchen in the process. Typically a man arrived to read the gas & electricity meters which are in the cupboard in the kitchen so after fighting his way into the cupboard he said his wife wanted to paint their kitchen lilac too. "Lilac" I screeched, "It's not lilac, it's French Grey you silly man" and that started a 10 minute debate with him about the colour even though I showed him the tin of paint saying "French Grey" on it he carried on arguing with me that it was lilac so I had to throw him out, and I know I am right about the colour as there is written evidence lol.

Anyway enough waffle as I'm late enough already.
