I first of all want to apologise for being a bad blogger this week! Nige went away for the night on Sunday (with work) up to Scotland & he had only been gone about 20 minutes when the heating stopped working.....I tried everything I knew to re-light the pilot light thingy but it wasn't working :0(   I ended up sharing a bed with fidget arse KatieKat & Didge slept on the sofa with Charlie dawg!!
I phoned up the repair man and he couldn't get out until Tuesday morning ......brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....Even when Nige got home Monday night he hadn't got a clue what was wrong with it! So we have had a few freezing cold days in The Camels Hump!!! but it all got fixed yesterday, but it took soooooooo long for the house to warm through I felt like a snowman.....so that along with my arthritis not liking the cold is my reason for being a pants blogger this week!!

I managed to make a card today, only a quick one mind as I am still defrosting lol...we are waiting for Nige to get home with take-out.....yummy!!!

Wasn't quite sure what sentiment to put on it!

Poor Shell, I would have lent you a blanket if I's known lol. The same happened to us last winter and its not alotta fun, especially when you get the bill. A beautiful card and think Gell Well or even Sympathy would be perfect!

Oh gosh Shell how typical that your heating would break down as soon as your hubby left, and those few days were so cold as well, I am glad you are starting to thaw out now. As for your card it is elegant, classy and very beautiful, I love poppies and this image is awesome.
