Don’t think I’ll ever be warm again!

Boiler is only firing up for a few minutes at a time so I have not had any heating since Thursday. Trying to run a bath is a nightmare! Run the bath until boiler cuts out, run up stairs to turn off tap, leave it for a while, boil up the kettle a few times, turn on the taps again to fire up the boiler and this goes on for about 3/4 hour, the poor kettle is working overtime! Plumber is ringing me with a quote for new boiler tomorrow – groan, more expense, but he wont be able to fit it until Friday. Bed and 2 microwave wheatie bags as soon as I’ve finished this post.

Well enough of my troubles. My sister requested another one of my number cards for her friends 60th birthday.Must admit these are a no brainer as I don’t have to think about it. Just decide what colours I’m going to do. The hardest part is trying to find the papers I  want in my stash!

The butterflies were stamped onto the patterned paper and glittered. Wire is sandwiched between the double butterfly image to give them movement.

Bed and warmth now.

Thanks for stopping by
