This post was to have been written from the comfort of my demo table at Sir Stampalot, but who knew that the south of England was going to come to a standstill due to a little bit of snow lol.
Nearly 18 hours later, I kid you not I left work at 11.30PM, working on card samples was the last thing on my mind.
Yes my shift at the garage took on marathon proportions when none of the staff could get in to work due to the movement of traffic, or should that be lack of movement.
We are situated only about 5 miles from junction 6 of the M25 that well know car park. Sorry guys English in joke. Well yesterday you could walk quicker than the traffic was moving, even given the depth of the snow. People were coming in with all sorts of horror stories about the length of time that they had been in the car. 8 hours to get from Croydon, a journey that might take an hour on a really bad day!!!!
This one uses a Penny Black stamp Joyeux Noel 3989K. I do like this one but have covered the French with a more traditional English greeting.
Holly Swirl X9839J. The large flower is also from Magnolia and matched the background beautifully I thought.
Christmas Text 4115K. Here I have just used a combination of background papers and ribbons available in the store.
I do hope that I will be able to make it up to the demo day on Saturday, but I think that it will probably be on the train, and I will not try and travel until Friday.
I was supposed to have been at work today, but after my stint yesterday I felt I had done my bit so I have spent the day helping out with the youngest two grandchildren. Saskia is not keen on the snow except to look at through the window and so while the girls did their good Samaritan bit for the old ladies round the corner from us, I stayed in the warm with the children. It's a hard job but somebody has to do it he he.
So I hope that you are all tucked up safely in front of a nice roaring fire as you read this. I must get back to my card samples. Fortunately I had already arranged for Barbara to collect the samples from me. It's a good job that her man has a Land rover so that this little flurry of snow should present no obstacles.
