A busy weekend


I never seem to have had a second to myself this weekend......cooking, washing, cleaning, book-keeping shopping, (here's me moaning)...... no time for me to sit down, it's just do this and just do that!!!!.......... As I said tonight, in a loud voice when I was ironing at 9.30pm ... no-one ever thinks to help ME.... and then I had to hover right through the house as my brother has been here all afternoon/evening and never took his boots off!!!! When he had gone, I discovered dried mud all over the house, I never noticed earlier with seeing to Mum and getting tea...!! OKAY, WILL STOP THE MOAN LOL.........

Tonight's card is one I made for Margaret for her book club friends, I was looking forward to doing this but it got put together in a rush for a birthday on Tuesday.
