Hello all you lovely folk and a special welcome to Anne and Margaret who have become followers whilst I have had a little unintentional sojourn.
Please accept these virtual flowers and my apologies for being AWOL this past week or so.
Its been a combination of various bits of carp (yes, that is a deliberate misspelling rather than pieces of fish lol!!!).
Here is my sorry tale of woe for the last week or so. . . . . . . . .
Firstly, my GC went "crunch" so I took it apart, put the loosened bolts back in but couldn't tighten them fully as I hadn't got the right size Allen key. I have therefore had to use it minimally, just doing a couple of birthday cards until I could go buy some Allen keys.
That hasn't been so easy to go shopping for them, as I have had to do extra days at work. My boss forgot to tell me he was covering another shop this past week and expected me to then cover him at a couple of days notice. . . . . . . . .You can imagine that was as popular with me as a guff in a crowded lift!!!
A friend of mine has been needing a bit of emotional support and tlc by phone in the evenings.
Next, the GC went "crunch" and jammed completely. I have managed to get some A keys from B & M but have been at work and won't have time to take the GC apart again until tomorrow.
Then my camera battery won't hold its charge to photograph the couple of cards I did make and the spare battery is kaput so I am awaiting a new one.
Have also got a strain of my left Achilles and a bruised knuckle (no, I haven't hit anyone, though I have been sorely tempted on occasions this week hahaha!!!)
And no, my middle name is not "Lucky" lol!!!
But other than that, its all been fine dandy at The Pond hahahahahahahaha!!!
I didn't like to post anything but a card as I know everyone's time is precious and didn't want you to spend time having to read my random waffle about the carp (still deliberate misspelling lol!!!)
Still, if you've made it to this point without nodding off, many thanks lol!!!
Also, I will be trying to catch up on all your posts tonight and tomorrow but sorry if its only your last one that I manage to comment on rather than all the others I may have missed.
Normal (???) service will resume shortly, although I'm not sure what it will be if the GC has gone to that craft room in the sky (ie BIN!) as I won't replace it until I've had a look at the new Platinum due out in 2 weeks time.
I may have to pole dance or make shadow puppets for your entertainment in the meantime but please bear with me until things get sorted.
Hope this coming week treats you all kindly and be good.
