Happy New Year

Wow, where did thay year go!!! I was going to be so diligent and write on here every other day, but the day job got in the way.  No excuse I know, but it was really hectic and I was made redundant in September and I thought I would take some time out, but then was offered another job and thought I had better take it in case another one didn't come along and then I wouldn't have enough money to keep the crafting habit up.

Well hope you all had a fab Christmas and the New Year brings you everything you want.  Will update more often

I got this in my email and it really makes me laugh.
This elderly man and elderly spinster met late in life and really liked each other . After a couple of dates they ended up in bed one night. In the morning the man was lying there thinking, 'If I'd known she was still a virgin I would have been a bit more gentle.'
The lady was thinking' If I'd have known he could still do it I'd have taken my tights off.

Whats happened to summer

Well, have been off on holiday for the last two weeksI went to Torquay and have to say the weather was fine so were really lucky.  On the home front the weather seems to have turned into autumn whilst I wasn't watching. We all seem to be getting into the xmas design spirit, seems to get earlier every year, with this in mind I have designed some xmas crackers that can be used for tags, labels, toppers or table placement cards.  I have jsut uploaded these to craftsuprint so will no doubt be available tomorrow.

Christmas Cracker

I wonder why we associate robins with Christmas, I was doing some weeding just the other day and a little robin joined in, he was so close I could have picked him up, then he was pecking off my shoe. he was really cheeky.
Anyway here's a christmas cracker cup no.245298, bright and cheerful.

Instead of a picture I thiught i'd give you a poem. I wrote this a few years ago when I was trying to learn about this new fangled contraption called a computer.
There's a monster that's come to stay at our house, It can't be all bad as it's brought it's pet mouse,
also a disk with words that i've never heard of,that I'm sure would frighten the worlds greatest nerds off.
It sits on my desk looking at me, with it's one black eye that lights occasionally.
I've made friends with it's mouse, which I stroke with my hand, but it speaks in a language I don't understand.
I never know what it's going to demand next,as it just sounds to me a near gibberish text.
It tells me to 'download' whatever that may mean, don't want to look stupid so I just stare at it's screen.
I'm told it's a genius at communication, but it says I've performed an illegal operation.
Windows you can't see through,bytes without teeth,rams that are'nt goats, it's beyond my belief.
Giga bytes, mega bytes,the net for a chat,I've heard of a 'floppy' ooops, I don't think it's that.
I've heard that this monster will do every task, I've tried all the buttons, it won't do as I ask.
What am I to do, it's not good for my health, my blood pressure's up, I can't think for myself.
It's driving me crazy. I know i'm no mug,I'll just shut it down and pull out it's plug.
Sheila. M.
I still feel the same about it.

Senior moment

One of my senior moments,I forgot to give the number of the last card, Missing you at Christmas
Now here's another joke.
An elderly couple were watching t.v. and the husband as usual had the remote, and kept switching between a fishing programme, and a porn channel. After a while the wife was fed up and said" For goodness sake leave it on the porn channel, you know how to fish."
