Morning all. What's that outside? Good heavens, it's SUNSHINE! I vaguely remember that, lol! Still very breezy here but thankfully nothing like the gales we had earlier in the week. Today is the first time I've seen the garden in daylight since then and we seem to have got away with it lightly, just one broken pane of glass in the greenhouse. I hope that you are all safe and in one piece.
Now, some of you will know that it is a totally mystery how my mind works, and here is an example of how totally dappy I can be at times.
Thursday night, while Toad was on the Wii Fit, I thought I would make mum and dad's thank you card and I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use. So, out came the LOTV boxes and I started to rummage through the "girls and boys" box. It wasn't there. Had a ferret through the "animals" box, in case I had slipped it back in the wrong one. Not there either.
Having checked the "Christmas" and "still to be EZ mounted" boxes with no success I then started to panic. I went back to the first box and emptied it right out onto my bench and went through them methodically. I did this with all four boxes. No stamp. I even checked to make sure that I didn't have two stamps in one sleeve. No stamp.
By now I am in a total fret. Could it have got caught up with some stuff I'd thrown out? Toad told me to stop muttering and use something else instead. INSTEAD?? Anyhoo, as time was getting on, I grabbed a stamp and made a card. Here it is:
By the time I had finished, Toad had gone upstairs for a bath so I made a start on getting some supper. He came down, took his tray and toddled off to munch in front of the tv. I stood in front of the microwave waiting for my bowl of soup to heat up when, suddenly, D'OH!!! No flipping wonder I couldn't find that stamp in my LOTV boxes ......
...... it's a SUGAR NELLIE!!! Oh I cannot tell you how STUPID I felt, but so RELIEVED at the same time. The thought of losing a precious piece of rubber nearly sent me into spirals of hysteria.
So, all is well. The stamp has been found, mum and dad got a thank you card that they will still love, and Toad has had it confirmed that his missus is a complete nut job.
Right then, off to have a go at some of today's challenges - will be back later. If I can find the right stamp of course!
