What a day it's been! I painstakingly cut out two decoupage sheets last night and left them on my laptop cushion overnight to find hubby had got up during the night and "moved" the cushion and tipped the bits everywhere - grrr why are men so thoughtless! Anyway set to this afternoon to make a get well card with one of said decoupages and just couldn't get the base layer matted and layered satisfactorily and ended up giving up and using a diecut decoupage instead.
In the midst of all this the doorbell rang and lo and behold it was Talk Talk making their fourth visit in 12 months to sign us up for telephone and broadband - not that they introduce themselves of course but I knew the minute the young lad (being polite here) opened his mouth. I quickly interrupted him and told him I wasn't interested and he insisted on carrying on until I eventually shut the door in his face, he and his colleague left with him shouting some expletives behind himself!! Talk Talk job adverts must go something like:
Teen wanted, attitude essential, must know everything and have the ability to answer back.
Anyway then set to making my get well card and tried a new Cheery Lynn doily die which took 3 attempts to get a cut I was happy with, why do we have days like this - knew I should've stayed in bed this morning!! This is for my hubby's Aunt who had a brain aneurysm and emergency surgery on Friday night - she was very lucky as she lives alone but realised something was wrong and managed to dial 999.
