Anastasia - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
 I have actually made sure I got around to scheduling today's post as no doubt my house will be in chaos right now as in about an hours time I will be waving hubby & Jode off on their way to Portugal in a massive convoy of Harley's. The noise of those motorbikes is going to be flipping deafening but as I'm constantly told when I worry about the poor neighbours having to put up with the loud roar of hubby's bike "loud pipes save lives" lol.

 I have two main worries about them going off on holiday, they are going on a flipping ferry & I know they won't stay by the lifeboat as instructed by me, & the second is hubby has been on a night out with Jodie twice and the drunken state she bought the poor man home in both times I could not believe as I had never seen him so drunk, he's old so she'd better look after him lol.

I realised yesterday that these 10 days that hubby is on holiday will be the longest time we have spent apart in 27 years of being together, but I dare say I will find something to do to occupy myself, can't think what though but it's a good job I have loads of Copic reinkers on their way to me lol.
