House - Mouse Monochrome

Morning peeps.  Lovely and bright here this morning, it really is as this is a live posting.  Lol!!!  It was gorgeous yesterday as well so my scheduled posting was correct.  My card today is just because I want to.  Hubby and I are due to go to the Dentist for our check up's tomorrow but I am going to have to ring this morning and cancel his as he is so full of cold.  He really suffers when he gets a cold bless him.  I hope you are all well in blog land.

You may remember the other day there was an accident outside my window, well unfortunately it involved my friend's elderly parents.  She lives on the other side of the apartment block so was spared seeing it.  This young chap apparently come zooming round the roundabout and hit the side at force and came flying through the air and landed on top of the elderly couples boot of the car.  The elderly couple were both taken to hospital but are both home now, but their breathing has been made worse.  They both had breathing problems before but now they are even worse.  They are still in bed a lot of the time but were lucky to be alive.  My friend doesn't know what happened to the young chap.

I feel a bit shook up at the moment as I live on a roundabout and my craft room window looks out on to it and there has been a hell of a bang, one car went through the barrier  and another has got spun round so the place has loads of police cars and ambulances etc.  I am only pleased that there is a tree partly blocking the full view.  I feel all tense and have a headache at the moment.

Hey I have Used One Squirrel !!!!!

Hi Folks.  A bit overcast here again this morning but it is meant to be sunny later.  They were correct yesterday so let's hope they are again today.  Crossing fingers very tightly, they are meant to come and repair our lift today.  But we all know what contractors and workmen are like.  They probably promised our House Manager to get her off of the phone knowing that she is now off for just over a week on holiday!!!!

The title of my post is directed at the lovely SQUIRREL as she knew I had bought stamps from the new L.O.T.V. range but hadn't got round to using them.  I did keep promising her.

Pat's Christmas Card Order 6

Morning peeps.  No sun here at the moment but hopefully it will come out later as the weather girl promised.  Hope you are all well and those that went to Ally Pally had a good time and spend up.  I didn't make it as the lift in our apartment block has been broken for over a week, having to go up and down the stairs to go out/the laundry and refuse room has really made me poorly with my Rheumatoid.  Hopefully I will be able to go next year.

My card today is the 6th one from a Christmas Card order I have got.
