Lighthouse Card & What a week!

Good morning to you! Today’s card is what I would formerly described as a ‘reject’ but thanks to Annette here she’d created a ‘contenders’ blog hop- ie- cards that didn’t make the cut for submissions! Now the collection link is closed so I can’t officially link mine up but it’s still worth having a look- there’s some gorgeous work there!
Mine is a cheeky play on lighthouses’ function. Lighthouses are there to normally warn of rocks to shipping aren’t they- my card is a lighthouse celebrating a rock—the recipient. The sendee simply rocks. Perhaps it’s too convoluted for you! I liked it at the time 🙂
I’ve also got these amazing socks to show you..

My lovely friend Mara made them. What a talented girlie. I couldn’t knit to save my life ( tiny Barbie scarves are my knitting limit!). They were a present for my birthday and they’re too beautiful to wear. ( I will wear them Mara, promise!!). Her blog is great- go and peek!

Well, this week.
Rather a rollercoaster.
Want to hear about in précis version?
Meeting. Hobbycraft- good. Evening- committee meeting.
Tuesday- ferrying.Parents evening. More ferrying. Good.
Wednesday- hiccups. Including wind blowing my car door into someone else’s.
Tesco lose my shopping. I find it.
Get in touch with poor person whose car I dinted. On way to pick up girls in afternoon- puncture.
In pouring rain and wind Steve fixes punctured tire. Thankful.
(I’d have cried a 1000 tears before managing to do it).
Problem. Spare car tyre isn’t ok.
Steve limps (metaphorically speaking) to garage.
Bill. £107. Ouch.
Another bill coming in for the dent.
Thursday. All afternoon in Alder Hey ( kids hosp) with no.2 who managed to scratch her eyeball in 2 places by bending down to pick up hairbrush & clonking eye on sofa. Ouch.
Evening- 6th form open eve with no.1.
Today. I’m finishing off prep for my stamping class tonight.
Wow.
Hope your week’s been less eventful!

See you when I’ve chilled out a little ! xx

    I think your card “Rocks”, I love it! Socks are a work of art too, what a great friend you have, one who sends you hand knitted socks, just lovely and as for your week, eventful – yes, lesson’s learnt – I expect so, are you patting yourself on the back – I really hope so!

    I scratched my eye a very long time ago and I remember the eye doc at the time reassuring me that the eye heels amazingly quickly.

    I had a bad hair cut yesterday and I’ve been letting it ruin my today! Silly me!!!

    Hugs C x
