Hi, and welcome!
Okay, I'm sorry that's such a bobbins title, but I'm far toooooo hot to get my few brain cells even more steamed up, trying to think of a catchy title!
Do I sound just a teensy bit frazzled???? You bet I am.....got woken this morning by a call I did not want to get.......Daughter #2 (Gillian) had her house burgled, last night.......can you believe how low some people can get?
Her hard-working hubby left, early Sunday morning, to work for his company for two weeks.....in India!.....which means she's on her own with 4 children. She's certainly not the meek and mild type, and had no problem with Hubby being away, but this has thrown her.
She suspects, as do the police, that the villain is somebody who knows Hubby was going to be away......which could be half the planet!
Fortunately, after breaking in through a kitchen window, while #2 and the kiddles were asleep, upstairs, all they took was some cash from her purse, and cards.
My Hubster went around to her house, but had to get on his way to work....he's working away, too, but I'm well used to that....and anyone trying to get in here would have to face our black lab....who just happens to be as old as time, and almost deaf...haaaa!....and Jonathan's English Staffie......and me!!
Anyway, the police were coming to see her, but I've not yet had an update.....watch this space!
I did a little playing today.......was very tempted to plunge me hot hands into more frosty Christmas stuff, but bit me bottom lip and backed away from the stash....haaaa!
Here's what I came up with, instead.......
I didn't want to put my usual number of pics up, firstly because it's pretty self-explanatory....aren't they all?...heehee.....and secondly because I want to show you something else.....but, first the card.
I used kraft base and some papers from a collection called "New Leaf" by Mindy Terasawa.....I've made a few more with this gorgeous set, so look out for them........I cut the sentiment (TLC) with my new Spellbinder's die, and cut another piece of kraft for underneath.......clipped both together with the dinky paper clip and a bit of string....very manly....., and added 3 candi dots...done!
Gillian has had a bit of a day, whichever way you look at it; not only was she burgled, but her eldest child, Harrison, finished at primary school today....aaawwww....can't believe he goes to high school in September!
His class was given the best kind of treat....picked up, after school, in a limo and taken to play bowls.....and fed, to boot!
Harrison is the one with his arms raised.....does he look pleased, or what?
Is it me, or do they all look a bit under-whelmed?
