Simon Says Stamp DT, Lili Of The Valley GDT & Last Chance To Enter Candy

Hello lovely peeps,
I hope all our friends across the pond are safe after the awful hurricane Sandy, the pictures on the news are horrendous I just can't image how terrifying it must be to be in the path of a hurricane.
The days just seem to be whizzing by here & I've decided I absolutely love the internet as I've bought several Christmas presents all from the comfort of my sofa, coffee in hand, no crowds, nice and snug indoors, now that's my ideal kind of shopping lol.
I've also been spending a lot of time with Jodie at the moment, she's really struggling with coming to terms with the loss of her friend Jake, and sadly another friend Dave was repatriated yesterday so she's not having a good time at the moment.

Today is new challenge day at

Three Little Angels - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Hello peeps,
I'm not a happy girl today, well I'm pretending to not be a happy girl anyway as the husband & the daughter are both in the dog house!
First of all the husband & Gareth were both working a sleep over shift last night & hubby phoned to say goodnight & asked "shall we go out for a carvery tomorrow?" & I said no I'll cook a chicken casserole or ....... but before I could finish my sentence & say cook a roast Mr Stacey piped up "not more of your glutenous, tasteless, muck"!!!!! Gasp! I have never pretended to be any good at or even like cooking but there's no need to be so flipping rude is there lol.
This morning I woke up full of cold & as I went downstairs heading for the kettle & I looked out into the porch and could see compost & a couple of branches off my big Bonsai tree on the rug and then noticed half of my lovely cup and saucer plant pot was smashed on the floor, the table it was on had moved a couple of  feet & there stuffed between the Bonsai's trunk & the wall was Jodie's devil fancy dress costume & shoes, no prizes for guessing who was drunk last night, naughty girl lol.
The annoying thing is I only brought in in from the garden a couple of days ago as I loved that pot & didn't want the frost to crack it, it probably stood more chance of it surviving the frosts instead of an encounter with Jode lol.

I'm so annoyed I've a cold as the art of scowling is lost when you have to keep your mouth open to breathe, you just look like an idiot lol.
