Fun In The Sun - Addicted To Stamps & Totally Tilda DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Didn't team GB do well yesterday :) I haven't actually seen much of the Olympics as this past week has been crazy so I've just caught snippets of it here & there & I was supposed to be typing and scheduling my post last night but kind of got distracted & was watching the Olympics instead so I only got as far as uploading the pictures lol.

We had little Ollie for another over night stay on Thursday and once again he was a little angel & he made Jodie soooooo happy by saying her name for the very first time and because he got lots of praise he kept toddling over to her & saying "Jodie" waiting for us to applaud him & applauding himself lol.

You know I was having my lovely big porch double glazed & a new front door fitted, well it's all been done but .................
The front door is lovely, as are the 2 large windows but the smallest window which is still pretty big is annoying the life out of me as the patterned lines on it are vertical and the patterned lines on the door and large windows are horizontal!!!! I guess that's the kind of thing that happens when a woman is too busy to supervise men lol.
God help the boss when he pops around to inspect the work next week as I am seriously one unhappy bunny about it as he will find out as I don't get annoyed very often most things just go over my head as life is too short to stress over little things but when I do get mad there's no stopping me, that crazy woman inside me really comes out to play & she doesn't stop for breath she just rants for England lol. I must take a piccy of it and give you all a giggle it really has to be seen to be believed how they messed it up lol.

Today is new challenge day at
