Another Oldie


Good Morning Ladies,

Just a quickie today,  yesterday turned out to be 'One of those days', It started off bad as I was totally on my own,  which you all know I hate.  It means a super early start to the day so that Paul knows I am safely downstairs before he leaves for work at 6.30am !  With my poor sleep pattern that hour isn't for getting up!  I try to relax in my recliner but its not that comfy.  I managed to kill a couple of hours though.

I had to call sky because we haven't had tv since Thursday evening,  Paul has tried every method of rebooting,  restarting etc over the past few days and the box will not receive signal.  I was on the phone to Sky for over 2 1/2 hours, she had me doing exactly what Paul had done with no success!  I pressed buttons i didn't no existed, she had me up and down like a sweeps brush.!! But after 2 and a half hours of pushing,  twisting and tweaking we were no further forward,  my heart was racing so hard I couldn't get my breath!  She ended up saying 'We will have to get an engineer out to you"  I said I told you thats what we needed hours ago!  The best bit is the earliest the Engineer can come is.....4th June !!!  Paul was not a happy bunny!!  That man likes his 10 o'clock news!!   He has ordered a normal cable that connecta to the original aerial,  so we can atleast get 4 channels, I hope there is a decent aerial up there !! 

My craft room looks like a tornado has been through it as I had to dismantle my desk for access to the router box and Sky Q box.  Paul had to take it apart a bit, so consequently no card was made.

This card is from 13th May 2018 I believe, its quite sweet, I used an embossing folder for the background.

I hope that today will be an improvement on yesterday! 

Love & Hugs to all of you,

  1. Another beautiful oldie
    What a nightmare re the Sky box etc I’d really miss not having a television to watch As you have Sky Q can you watch channels on a pc/laptop in the meantime
    The Salsa club was quiet last night and even though the temperature has dropped slightly it was so so hot dancing
    There’s a couple of crafting bits I must must do today - one being a gift box for tonight
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    I love this card with it's yellow roses in a basket, very sweet.
    Oh what a mess with sky and everything. Hopefully they can get you some help earlier than June and Paul can put your desk back together.
    Not such a nice day today, it was raining all night and most of the morning. Mojo has not come back either so not feeling very happy but have sat myself a task to do a card tomorrow.
    Take care and many hugs to you all

    I love your ‘old’ card, very pretty 😍
    Sorry to hear about your ordeal yesterday with Sky! 😢 What a nightmare. Hopefully the new cables Paul gets with give you something to watch. I hope today has been better for you 🥰
    Hope everyone is ok.
    Sending hugs to you all xxx
