C is For...

Christmas!!!   Oh yesh, I have been playing for my Stamp Attic DT today - all the deets are HERE on the Stamp Attic blog.  I usually am the one who is haring about like a loon on December 1st, no stuff made and all that.  Well, this year I am being super organised and am getting ready early!  Well, my crafting is getting ready early, not so sure about the rest of it yet lol   Here's a sneak peek of the tag I have made... please do pop over to see the rest of it :O))



C is also for.... cruddy internet!  I am grumpy today because yonder t'internet has been playing up biiiiig stylee this past few days.  Yesterday it was practically non-existent and today it is sporadic.  I just did a broadband speed test... it was 0.79mb.  I know, slower than dial up right!  Tis the trouble with this daft old ADSL rubbish that we have to put up with.  I so wish that Mr Virgin or Mr BT would dig up our road and bung some cable in... we were spoilt at the old house and even now, 2 1/2 years later I miss it.  (tis the only thing I miss about that house though lol)   Anyways, enough of the whinging about my lack of internet and onto what happened yesterday!   Right, so Grim has gone to see his BFF for an overnight stay.  I am full of ideas what I am going to do to keep myself busy and all that.  So, after dropping him at the station, I came home, settled to watch Strictly from this weekend so I wouldn't have to avoid the radio all day.  Watched that, corrr, wasn't Denise amazing!  And Colin Salmon, of course, he was the best (snort)  Once I had finished watching that I decided to go and get a shower and spruce meself up a bit.  This was 11am. Well, I happened to notice the bed and how inviting it looked.  Well, 40 winks won't hurt will it?   Aha, yep, actually it turned into more like 40,000 winks.  I woke up at 4pm!   And then went back to bed at 11ish last night and slept right through til 9am!  I think I must have needed to re-charge the old batteries.  The fact that I look like I have slept for that long isn't helping.  I have an almighty pillow-scar down my cheek, very attractive eh?  With that delightful image, I shall say, thanks for looking.. TTFN!

Is it any wonder you're tired? That will have been one long weekend (with tons of stuff either side of it too!) and it sounds like you needed to stop. Glory only knows how Sue Wilson is still going! Off to check out the DT project now. Hope you and the internet have recharged batteries to conquer the rest of the week. Hugs, Buttons x

Morning Hels, I popped across to Stamp Attic first after seeing your 'sneak peak', I love, love, love this tag, it is 'fantabuloso', I love everything 'Tim' and you have done him proud with this tag.

Well you definitely needed all that sleep, no wonder you would have been on the 'go' all weekend and also last week preparing, hopefully you now feel much more refreshed.

It must have been absolutely awful when you were having probs with the internet, we all take it so for granted and when it goes wrong, it is a 'catastrophe'. I'm glad we are on Virgin, although we did try to get Sky because of C&C and Sky Atlantic but were unable to have it because of ALL the 'council planted' trees down the side of my house, so have to stay with Virgin, but when my laptop went wrong a couple of weeks ago, I spent ages on the phone to Virgin, but they got me up and running again and I was so grateful for being with them.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Love the little sneak peek!!
You need to listen to your body and do that more often - you only sleep that long if you need to. Hope your bed scar has now disappeared!!
