Run of bad luck..........

blogged by me domestic goddess On 4/03/2006 08:46:00 PM
It is all I seem to post about these days. Well if you remember a few posts ago my bad luck was definitely going to run in 6's as I had already had 5 things happened, and yes today the 6th came at me with pound signs at the ready, the boiler has come to the end of its sorry life!
so to recap shall we , just for a laugh

- mobile phone MIA
- debit card details stolen
- car exhaust cost GBP170
- creative scrapbooking folds
- computer still ill!!!
- boiler deceased

and to top it all off I had flu last week!!!, come on girls I have to be due some good luck don't !?

Had a surprise phonecall yesterday afternoon, Kirsty rang as she was going to pop over to ours before heading home today. That was a lovely surprise and she stayed for dinner in our cold house, slept in a tango spank cold room and left for Wigan at midday after croissants and coffee (BTW she does not like gold blend!!!, she never drinks the coffee I make her)

Today is the first day of the school holidays and both the girls went to Margaret so I had a bit of time with Kirsty and some peace and quiet. I also packed orders and posted, which was a good feeling after getting nothing done last week.
I have a gorge kit I have put together this evening, using the beautiful handmade and silk dew papers, complete with lovely embellishments and an album all for GBP25.00 (RRP 36.00) . Check my blog tomorrow for piccies (edited to add photo).
I have only made 5 up in pinks/purples/off white. I will see how these go and then I will make some up in blue/greens and then naturals. I love them. They will be gorgeous as wedding albums, baby albums, special occasions/holidays.

Spoke to Jennie today, the deputy editor of creative scrapbooking and she is really well, has another line of papers to design for which is brill news. So watch out we have definitely not see the last of Jennie!!!. Also it looks like Jo has some fab news, and cant wait for that to be announced as well.
I may be having a run of bad luck but it is good to see Jo and Jennie coming out of the magazine with positive minds.
I have started my healthy eating regime today. And there was me just about to write that I cannot get inspired with teh 21 day challenge, maybe this is the new habit I should be journalling about!!!
I got out my Gillian McKeith book "you are what you eat", OMG i was in stitches just reading the "poo" section!!! Yes there is a section on identifying your poo!!!, enough to put anyone off their dinner!!!! TRying to educate Peter is actually going to be the tough bit I think. He rang me at lunch time to ask if a pork pie was OK????? enough said really, bless eh!
