Monday Blues


I don't have the time for Monday blues, far to much to do lol----- yesterday got the dining room bottomed and almost topped... just have glasses and crystal do-da's to wash and sparkle and then all done in there !! I got the Christmas tree up on Saturday and a few decorations, not going mad this year, last night I made a sticky ginger cake, it's soooooooo yummy when left for 2 weeks in an airtight tin (if no-one eats it before ) lol.....a little came over the top of my tin so had to sit down with a large glass of red and devour it !!!!! I think I earned it lol.......... still got a few cards to make but I am getting there, I have not been keeping up with blogging over the last few days, but will be round to visit soon.
Today's card is one I made for the lady at our post office, they cannot believe the amount of cards I take in with 'please do not bend' written on top lol, she was asking about my hobby so I made her a card, as they are Muslim I made it into a New Year card, she was in tears when I took it today----- I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS THAT BAD !!
She said she would treasure it !lol
