some days!!!...


Good morning everyone did you all have a fab weekend?...did you ever get one of those days that should have been spent in bed...I woke up feeling like some was doing riverdance in my head and contemplated staying there nursing my cold and feeling sorry for myself but poor Phil had to go to work again so I thought I would get up and prepare something yummy for dinner...mistake lol...I put some bread in the toaster because I hadn't had anything to eat the day before and went into the living room and lay down on the sofa, I forgot that last time I had toast was with wheaten bread and it take a high temp to get it even brown, yes you guessed it, smoke alarms and everything pounding through my poor head...have you ever tried to get smoke alarms to stop when the inside of your head is mush lol...I managed to stop it and grabbed a cup of coffee instead and tripped going in the lounge and threw it all over the floor (thank goodness it missed the new sofa), I realised then I should have went with my first thought and stayed in bed so back I trotted and didn't wake until 5.30pm...I think I must have needed it though as my head felt a little better but I still haven't managed anything to eat yet and I'm scared of the toaster lol...some days are just meant for bed aren't they...right now onto my card for today how fabulously cute is this gorgeous digi from Cuddly Buddly and by Pachela Studios and called Toby Tumble For The One I Love...I printed two of them, coloured them with distress inks and did a little bit of decoupage with them but I think its quite hard to tell from the photos...the stunning papers and the teeny cute tag are from the gorgeous Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the papers are glossy and decoupaged...lush...I finished with a small gingham bow and a rose to match...the fab sketch is from The Crazy Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Great Impressions challenge and the Challenges 4 everybody challenge too...I'm hoping my lovely Dad doesn't need to go out or need shopping today as I really don't feel up to it at all, but will do it with a smile on my face of course if he rings, don't we all lol...oh ignore me I'm wallowing in a haze of cold suffering self pity today lol...whatever your up to today be careful of the 'stay in bed gremlin' lol

I think your little Riverdancers came over here for an encore. I got up four times to pick up and drop off kids but other than that I've stayed in bed most of the day and feel none the better for it. I hope whatever you have clears up soon, goes away and stays gone.

Hugs,
Snoopy :D
