Yesterday Was Plain Awful

Let me set the scene for how great my Sunday started: I woke up at 8:30, which is a long lie in for me, got a cup of tea and took it back to bed for a while and did a bit of surfing the net.  Decided to see if there was any bread in the freezer because I really fancied an egg sandwich for breakfast.  There was bread  in the freezer and how handy it was for me that it was already defrosted!  Yes the fridge freezer had packed up so I had to get a new one.  Ordered it, went in the garden to cut the grass and halfway through the lawn mower packs up!  Arrghh. So now I have a half cut garden (when really it's me that wants to get half cut) and a flooded kitchen where the freezer is defrosting at a rate on knots on one of the hottest days of the year!  Fridge freezer delivered today, late, and delivery men helpfully ripped the carpet!

That's the bad new and here's a little interval where I show you another layout I did at the weekend:
This is the beautiful Maddie, modelling in the beautiful car that my sister had for her wedding.  I'd been meaning to scrap it for ages and this kit from Sarah's Cards was perfect.

I love the layering and the little embellishments and it went together surprisingly quickly for me.

The good news is that I won £107 at bingo tonight so that's half of the fridge freezer paid for :)  The other good news is that I only have one more day at work and then six whole days off to do as I please.

Thank you for all the lovely comments you keep leaving, I hope your weekend was better than mine.

It's no fun when everything quits at the same time - UGH! Beautiful layout - those papers & embellishments work perfect with that cute photo.

Gorgeous layout - I've got that kit too and am using it at the moment, it is interesting to see how different layouts can be with the same kit. I am sorry to hear about your fridge and the mower - glad you won at bingo though! Enjoy your break, I do not finish until Thursday 5pm!
