too old for skinny dipping...

Good morning everyone, are you all well and having a good week...if not have a moan it will do you the world of good or even better have a rant its even better for the soul...we will all listen to you...I was sitting crafting yesterday morning and my mind was going through what I was taking on holidays (I'm a woman I can multitask lol) when it dawned on me I hadn't seen the bag I put all my swimsuits and sarongs and cover up into ready to put my hand on...well I searched and searched and came up with nothing, there isn't any bags left to empty and I looked in all the cases, so as soon as Phil came in I pounced, had he put the bag away somewhere...we all remember the incident with the handbag that disappeared and it turned up in the attic don't we lol, had I looked in my drawers, well duh lol...nope he hadnt seen it anyway but had a search through the attic and everywhere else he could think of...oh well he says just buy another swimsuit...is he mad I ask myself, it took me years to collect swimsuits and cover up that hide the lumpy bits and support the floppy bits you cant just go in mid September and find swimsuits that you need can you...by this time I was ready to cancel everything and stay at home when I heard Phil yell from one of the spare rooms...there's a couple of cupboards we were going to throw away but our beautiful Daughter asked us to keep for her at the last minuet...now I don't know where Phil's brain was that day but he had shoved the bag in one of them (shhhhhh dont tell him but it was probably me lol)...if I hadn't been so relieved I would have asked why but I don't care they are safe and folded ready to pack...phew panic over after all I'm far to old for skinny dipping I don't want to scare any small children lol...right now onto my card for today which is using another little angel from Mo's Digital Pencil, just look at that face isn't he adorable...hes called Just one story (boy) and I coloured him with distress inks and paper pieced his little onesies...the fabulous papers I used are from the My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Bluebell 6x6 Pad its from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but I think its out of stock atm...I finished with a lush silk bow, a couple of buttons and a tag...the fab sketch is from the Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge, Im also entering it for the Sassy Cheryl's digi stamps challenge too...I'm having another crafting day today this time without the mind panic...whatever your up to don't forget have a rant or moan if you need too

He is so adorable. Your coloring is beyond compare. And your posts always give me a smile or a chuckle! I'm with you. I am WAY too old for skinny dipping! I think once you get past 25 you have way too many lumpy & saggy parts! lol

Hi Mina - your post did make me laugh.
You're so right about it taking years to collect just the 'right' swimsuits. You did make me chuckle.

Your card is gorgeous too, thanks for joining us at Sunday Sketch and Stamp this week.
