Last Sunday my vacuum went Bang! Whats the problem with that you may ask it saved you from doing the housework but. I live with 3 cats, cats are furry and shed their fur everywhere and so when it gets ankle deep it does have to be vacuumed up. So off to the shop to get a new one, bearing in mind that we are not going to be able to buy those powerful sucky tools once the shop stocks have sold out, something to do with global warming. £100 + later a new cleaning tool made its way to my home.
New boss had her first post hand over week. Now normally this would not be to much of an issue even if she does need to know absolutely everything and have her hand held at each step. We are still working on the go live of a new computer system, what to new computer systems do? they go wrong. Top this with 2 power cuts during the week stoping all work for each afternoon and resulting in 2 very late evenings in the office (6:45 and about 7:15) a new early start on Mondays on the promise of a early finish, yeah right. And people wonder why I am stressed?
Then I get answers about the boiler at the house I am buying. They have never had the boiler serviced and do not know when it was installed!!!! Who does not get their boiler serviced? So I've gone back and said get it serviced or replaced to my satisfaction or the deal is off.
There is more the normal nonsense of spam calls, spilling the milk (Actually didn't do that) kind of normal day to day stuff not worth mentioning.
But, and this is important the cats are all fine.
So this week-end has been about unwinding, the vacuum was unpacked and put to work! Now this is sad but I like the new machine it is sooooo much better than the deceased one. And I made a card.
Pumpkin Spice - Coffee or the Colours of Coffee
Less is More - Face the Music and Dance
The colour pallet (apart from the Orange) is shades of coffee, from the browns of 'black' coffee to the cream of silver top milk Camp Coffee my Mother used to make. I've used Memento, Stayzon, and Colour box chalk inks. The image has been coloured with Promarkers.
The Main images is a Stamps Happen Inc stamp stamped onto a scrap rectangle and fussy cut. The blocks, music and stave are old stash collection stamps. The solid strip is a piece of scrap from another project. The cafe girl on her stool always me think of Bob Fosse a brilliant mid 20th century choreographer, I expect her to break into one of his dances any moment now.
