I Can Barely Contain...

...my excitement!!! Indeedily and thrice! Today... when I got out of bed at 07.30am it was... snowing!!! Yippedy-yah! Aha, you see, I have been whittering on alarmingly for days about it not being fair that we haven't had any snow... well, we certainly got a nice covering this morning... and I was like a big kid, wanting to go and make a snowman and generally roll around in the white stuff til I was covered head to foot... until... I remembered... today is the day that the nice man from the fire place (not an actual fireplace - like the Floo Network... nope not that type) was due to deliver and install our new fire!! To say I had a mini panic would be a bit of an exageration... actually I was dreading phoning them to get the time of delivery thinking that the nice man would say... no can do. However, result! He said he would be here about 2pm and sure enough, there he was... with new fire and it is all installed and... the living room is... warm and cosy. AlfieCat has got himself a new sleeping place already - right in front of the fire (stoopid he is not LOL) Anyways... we had a bit more snow and then it got a bit warmer and started to go and bit yakky and then the temperature dropped so it is like a skating rink outside... needless to say, I haven't got any sensible boots so I think I shall stay indoors until it has thawed a weensy bit.




With the excitement of the past few days I have totally lost my old Mojo - I think it is in a queue at St Pancras waiting for a train to Paris... however, I did manage to get another Tim tag made - I liked this one - like the idea of recycling packaging. I do think it was a bit wastefull of Grungeboard and won't be doing this again - I shall just chop the bits off the main one next time and not layer it... I mean, what can I do with a snowman diecut that has not got a nose or a hat??? ROFL




Oh and an update on the Volly situation... phew, I got some!!! They are only piddly little things but I kind of like that cos that means I can eat double the amount and not feel guilty ROFL Anyways... time for bed... I have a busy day tomorrow and need my beauty sleep (hey, I know, I need more than a sleep for that but a girl can dream lol) Thanks for looking... have a FAB day! TTFN

Hi Hels, So glad you got snow AND fire. And all in one day!

I love, love your snowman tag. You're doing great. I'm only up to day 3, think I'm going to take a break until after the holidays and then use the techniques to make NON-Christmas cards.

Your blog posts always give me a chuckle. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

YAY!!! SNOW!!! and more importantly ... new FIRE! So happy that the fire man was able to make it through the snow. Your snowman tag turned out amazing! OK I have to ask... what is "volly" - need another British lesson. Start a new list for the next visit (hahaha)... I'm already pricing tickets... Hope you got a good sleep... Hugs, Els xxx

GREAT news - snow, fire - yea!! I've not made that tag yet - oh, do I need to catch up after Christmas! I remember reading Tim's instructions & thinking it sounded as though some grungeboard would be wasted - thank you for the reminder.

I hope you have a wonderfully Merry Christmas!

Becky said...

Yeah! Snow for Hels! And fire for Alfie cat (cause that's really who it's for, now isn't it? wink) And whoo! What a story at the shops! Good idea to send Grim. I have done nary a tag o' Tims's yet, so good on you for doing so many. Have a Merry Christmas! Becky #77 on WOYWW

Helen said...

See, I knew when you got snow it wouldn't suit you!! My road and the next one down are like icing rinks still, then - everything vanishes - I have to get to the station tomorrow - don't want to wear my wellies.... may have to book a taxi.
Have a lovely Christmas with your vol-au-vents and Grim and Alfie-cat!! See you soon. Oh, and the tag's ok too!!!

Joanne said...

glad you got snow cos that would make your day. Ours has lasted a week 'cos it's so cold.
hugs xx

Hels, I told you if you are desperate for snow, come and fetch some of ours. I'm fed up of the stuff, Lol! AND it makes parking in the supermarket even worse 'cos you can't see the lines so everyone takes up two spaces!@*@! Sorry to rub it in but we had loads of stuff in our supermarket yesterday and no abnormal queues either!

Anyway, really wanted to say have a wonderful Christmas Hels and here's wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year. See you in 2011!

BTW your tags are looking great!

Hugs
Lesley Xx

No WOYWW? You must have been REALLY traumatised by the Battle of the Bread - that and entranced by the snow and your subsequent fire delivery.

Happy Christmas, Hels, Grim & Alfie-cat..... xx

Minxy said...

YAY for you, So where's your snowman photos then lol

Your tag is perfect, and i agree with you on the grunge waste, still unlike Tim we have to buy ours, he gets tons for free lol

So glad you'll get your white Christmas and can sit in front of your warm fireplace and enjoy all the "coziness." Your tag turned out great and I agree with you about wasting most of the 2nd snowman. I will just be coloring my arms, legs, nose and hat with ink or marker. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
