Love and Best Wishes xxxxx

No cardage peeps, but I just wanted to wish everyone who has visited me and made me so welcome during my first year in Blogland the most fabulous of fab new years. I hope it is a good year for you all. Thanks to you all for stopping by and leaving me a comment or 2 which always brighten up my day xxxx

Thank you also to everyone for your nice words and supportive e-mails etc following the horrible events of Christmas Eve. They have meant so much to us all and it is nice to know that there are so many nice, caring people out there.

A PS to the drunk driver saga is that basically he has told the police a shed loads of porkies about us, along the lines that we virtually forced him into our house and that Richard, (who really is the most mild mannered, quiet bloke you could find and wouldn't say boo to a goose), kept on at him saying that once the police arrived, he was basically done for (I've cleaned it up for on here but you can use your imagination as to the words he actually used, the potty mouth!!!). This is why he ran away he says.

Is that right? Ohh diddums!!!!.

How a seven stone slip of a girl, a middle aged batty old trout (can't believe I just wrote that about myself!!) and a man who has crippling shyness managed to force this healthy strapping mid 20 year old healthy lad into our house is beyond me.

Must have been my black ninja pjs!!
Ohhh, don't mess with the pink pig when she has those babies on lol xxx

He has also denied telling us that he had been drinking. So that would have been our cat then, cos someone said it and it wasnt me, or Rich or Emma, so that only leaves our Saffy cos Kyla was in bed.

I am sure that the police know we didn't do or say the things he is saying we said but I just think how bloody dare he and I am rather hacked off about it as you can probably tell, cos I just hate liars. At the end of the day, we could have been stroppy with him for basically making a right mess of our garden, but instead we just tried to be kind to him, knowing the predicament he was in.

Well no more Mr Nice Guy matey boy!!!!!

But anyway, I am not wasting any more words and energy on the lying pillock of a toad. I believe in karma and one day it will all come back and bite him on the backside. It will, it sooo will for sure!!!!

There was a first in this house today - no Kyla didn't do as she was told first time, yea Gods, that would be a 'praise Jesus' miracle if ever there was one lol xxx No, my lovely OH got me Photoshop Elements for crimbo and today I did my first digi layout. I feel a teeny weeny bit chuffed with myself even though I know it is nowhere near perfect on lots of levels, and I was really only fiddling about. But at least I got the picture and the elements onto the paper - no mean feat for a techno dumbo thicko dunce like me - doh xxxx

I'm not defecting to digi cos in my heart I am a cardmaker and like to feel the card and pens and ribbons etc, but I have so many fab papers and stuff which are just dying to be used and also I see it as a sort of extension of the creative thing. I wasnt going to put this on here but then I thought that in a few months time it will be nice to compare and see if hopefully I've improved lol xxxx

Your constructive comments would be most appreciated my little chickadees, cos I am just eager to learn xxxx

And so as the year draws to a close, I hope that everyone has the bestest and craftiest new year and I wish you all lots of love and peace. And as a thank you to all the lovelies that follow this blog, watch this space - something nice will be winging its way to one of you in the new year to celebrate my one year of blogging - ohh how marvellous :)))

xxxxx Happy New Year xxxxx

Dawn said...

Double Grrrrrrrr!!
My knuckles were turning white reading this!!!!
If he's done it once he'll probably drink and drive again and god knows what will happen next time - it's terrible the mutt got off!
Hope your NY was better anyway and Photoshop Elements - don't get me started!!! ROFL - I haven't got a blinkin' clue about it although it sits there on my desktop staring at me , taunting me to dare to use it!! Wish I knew how to - I can edit a photo and that's it!!

Used one of your Sugar Nellies on a card today - loved it!!
