I know it is Thursday! It is Jan 1st 2015 so Happy New Year to you all.
I had no internet at all yesterday, no idea why.
My desk is very messy, no crafting has occurred since my last post, I have just received a set of Creative Expressions stamps that I wanted and couldn't find called Steampunk Christmas, oh how I wanted and searched for these! Found them after Christmas of course but I have them for next year now.
I will keep it short, I am so tired. Christmas day my cooker "blew up", well there was a bang and a smell of burning and the electrics stopped working - I had 10 coming to dinner, and we managed as described in my last post. The engineer came yesterday and the motherboard needs replacing - he didn't have the right one and is coming back next week. That is two weeks without the ovens, but I have the gas hob, the combi microwave and the actrifry so it isn't too bad.
Sunday was a nice day, we were given tickets to Longleat by our son for Christmas, the whole family got to go. We arrived there at around 10am to get the safari bus, which should have taken 90 minutes to go round the animals but took 2 and a half hours due to the volume of visitors. Then we got lunch and wandered round for a bit, and it was so very cold we all needed warming up and so we went round the house, then for a cup of tea before heading out to look at the light show. I have some photos, will post them seperately when I am not so tired, and they would make this post very long.
Monday was Mother in Law's 86th birthday, unfortunately she had a bit of a fall and we got a call out to go and help her. We got the doctor out, she has an infection, and it was decided to take her to Sister in Law's. We managed between us and our son and Daughter in Law to get her into our car using a wheelchair to get her out, and down to Sister in Laws but she fell out of bed in the night and was hospitalised. So we have had a lot of visiting, sorting stuff etc. MIL is totally on a different planet right now, hopefully that is the infection or the drugs!
To go desk hopping head over to The Stamping Ground now.
