Wishing You All A Very Merry Christmas

Just wanted to say we have arrived safely in Darlington on Tuesday .Yes they have got snow but a sprinkle compared to what we left behind in Norfolk.Mind saying that at 2.30am it started snowing and is still continuing!Well i have successfully finished my crimbo shopping and craft shopping but only one decent shop in darlo that is a tad expensive too.boyes dept store have a little but not as much as they used to.Such a shame craft central closed as that was the only decent one here.

We did get over on tuesday to see my good friend June and hubby sam spent 3 hrs having good time drinking coffee and laughing!sophie was in her eliment playing with June's grandson Hayden who made us all laugh !hopefully next week before we come back we are going to take june for trip to hobby craft at teesdaide park weather permitting!

I would like to wish everyone a very "Happy Christmas"and for anyone travelling a safe and happy journey.Hope santa comes and brings you loads of crafty goodies,and other gifts Love n hugs

Disaster Has Stuck...

Oh my the day has started off badly thats before we get the snow!.This morning i didnt go back to bed thought id upload my challenge cards and Dt card for the C.R.A.F.T challenge.Went onto my laptop and disaster struck!!my screen has gone curput!!!it was fine when i logged off last night and this am bingo no hope .I am depressed to say the least as last night found my camera so before i sent the rest of my christmas cards i uploaded all piccys and now cant get to them..............Boo i have had to pinch back my daughters laptop which was my old one but when your use to a smaller one it's hard to get on with as ive found out this laptop is only 5 months old too ,but that doesnt come off warranty so im no hoping to claim under my accidental damage on house insurance.A wee little girl did come down this am a bit sheepish asking have you been on your laptop yet ?funny question to ask dont you think .any way no point crying over spilt milk as they say ..sob sob i have no favs on here all my links to my fav shops ect not here.but luckily some of my piccys i did are still on my sd card .so i will now go upload my cards and hope the day doesnt go from bad to worse....
