Hello lovely peeps,
Apologies for being such a bad blogger, I'm having the usual shoulder problems when I type my hand is going blue and I'm getting pins and needles galore so it is taking me ages to type with one finger.
Yesterday was the first good day I'd had in a little while and I was so pleased I managed to drive and take a Poppy cross up to the creamatorium for my dad as he always took part in the Rememberance Day parade & I will always make sure he has a Poppy for today.
We also did a little bit of Christmas shopping, Ollie is so going to love me but I'm not sure his mummy and daddy will, let's just say his present is noisy lol.
I also decided to buy a black microwave as I thought it would look nice with my black marble in the kitchen and it does, it looks lovely, I just need to learn how to operate it now! I am seriously confused by it so thought I'd let hubby suss it out, but after a few beeps of him pressing buttons, shaking his head & turning pages he passed the instruction manual to me, said "good luck" and went back in the lounge & left me to it. I'm still trying to get my head around it having 4 different defrost settings so it could turn out to be one of those useless items that looks nice but nobody uses just like the smoothie maker, the food processor, the electric knife, the slow cooker, all of which hubby "needed" & they have probably only been used once lol.
Today is new challenge day at

I also have a little candy to share today which is another Whiff Of Joy surprise bag containing 5 Whiff Of joy stamps which I had forgotten about buying as well as various other candy items I just discovered all sat in a basket in my craft room just waiting for me to get my bum in gear and get organised lol.
All you need to do if you want to win this little bag of stamps is let me know in a comment on this post and I will close this little candy next Sunday :)
This gorgeous Special Edition Santa Lucia Tilda lots of people have been asking about as she seems late hitting the shops but she is now in stock at SIMON SAYS STAMP, go get her girls lol.
I'm going to have a cuppa, put my feet up and have a lazy day today I think as a drunken Jodie woke me up stupidy early after I'd only had a couple of hours sleep on her return from A&E due to tearing the ligaments in her ankle & it's so swollen so she's hobbling on crutches and her foot is starting to develop some very impressive bruising. It's her own fault I've warned her about the dangers of "moving floors" after a wine or two lol.
