yum yum yum...

Good morning everyone are you all having a peaceful relaxing weekend, I think it will be our last peaceful weekend for a while don't you lol...don't you just love nice surprises, I woke up yesterday feeling really tired and a bit washed out (that's what happens when you burn the candle at both ends I guess) dragged myself downstairs to find Phil cooking one of my favourite breakfasts, smoked bacon, croissants and mushrooms...yum yum yum it was so scrummy too, its the little things like that that really count isn't it, not a grand gesture or spending money on gifts, just little caring thoughtful things don't you think it made my day and really brought my mood sky high...oooohhhh I'm getting slushy in my old age aren't I lol...thanks for all the kind thoughts for my arm, its fine a few bruises is all, takes more than bad manners and a wayward shopping basket to put me out of action lol...my lovely Dad is off on his travels again, I love to see him going away he very easily slips into a rut when hes home, I know what its like living alone and its easy to slip into one isn't it...so him getting away does him the world of good plus I know it sounds selfish but we really have a lot on our plates atm so it gives us one less thing to think about, does that sound awful...right now enough waffle Mina onto your card for today I hear you all shout...how stunning is this beautiful little mermaid (have you seen the new Little Mermaids set yet?) from Mo's Digital Pencil...this cutie is called Melia on her Shell, this is the undersea version of a mobile phone I think lol...I coloured her in just one colour distress ink this time (except for her skin of course) and glittered her up...the fantastic papers are from the Graphic 45 8x8 Paper Pad - Olde Curiosity Shoppe, have I told you before how much I love Graphic45, what do you mean I have, you sure lol...this stunning pad is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with some gorgeous black ribbon and a black velvet bow...I didn't think it needed anything else, do you?, the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Creative Card Crew challenge and the Crafty Catz challenge too...we are off to look at sofas today, we need to either get them ordered or at least agree on which ones to buy, even agreeing on a colour would be a start wouldn't it lol...wish us luck...whatever your up to today have a brilliant stress free relaxing kinda day
