Well I have just got back from our holiday to Skegness. So glad my scheduled posts went to plan, and thanks for popping by to comment on them :-)
Glad to be back, but you should see the mountains of washing on my kitchen floor...not a pretty sight! I think it will be several days before I make any cards or do any proper blogging as I need to battle my way through that lot first.
I actually took my Promarkers on holiday and some images to colour but I did not get them out once! Oh, except for 'True Blue'. Now take note of this handy hint. When I go away, I take a needle with some white and black thread with me in case of a sewing emergency like a hem coming down etc. Well, my 2yr old sons blue rain coat tore all under the armpit and down the side when his Dad was lifting him into a little ride. As I only had black and white thread, I had the brainwave to colour the white thread with true blue Promarker and it worked a treat. You can't even tell where the rip is now...a perfect colour match!
Our holiday got off to a shaky start, (and I will never live this one down). To cut a long story short, after a long four & a half hour drive we arrived and were looking forward to settling into our Butlins apartment....then disaster! I had left the key to our cars roof box at home!! Everything was in the roof box, including my husbands coat, which contained the spare roof box key! I could have cried.
I phoned my Mum back home, who then went to our house to search for the key. I had a plan that she could post it by special delivery to where we were staying, and at least we would get our luggage the next day. But she searched high and low...no key!
So plan B. We drove to the local Halfords in Skegness, as it's a Halfords roof box. The helpful man tried lots of keys, none would fit. He could order us a spare key but that would take a week!! Our hol would be over by then. So he said he could bust open the lock for us if we didn't mind our £350 roof box being ruined! We were just wondering what to do when I reached into the depths of my trouser pocket and FOUND THE KEY IN THERE!!!
I swear it wasn't there the first time I checked! Oh dear, I will never live it down!
Anyway, thanks to everyone for entering my blog candy. The draw is now closed and I will draw a winner at random as soon as I can, hopefully over the weekend, once I've got the washing out of the way.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to catch up with you all soon!
