Hi everyone, hope everyone is well and looking forward to Christmas. It is still very snowy here and we had some more snow showers today. It is also very cold. Even colder in my house as we have no heating. Over the last couple of weeks we've been turning the heating lower and lower all over the house but for the last 3 days we've had none at all. Lots of fun when it's so cold. My husband has even been getting up during the night to run the water to make sure it doesn't freeze. The road has also been very bad and I'm not sure I'd have got over to my work this morning if I'd had to drive myself. Hubby was speaking to our neighbour at the farm and he had run out of oil too and was very lucky to get it the other day. He very kindly gave us some of his oil but now we can't get our boiler lit again!! When hubby spoke to the oil distributor the other day they said we had been down to get oil on Tuesday but the driver ran out of hours so we had been put to the end of the queue! I was absolutely furious when I heard that. How could anybody be so cruel not to mention stupid. I don't know about you but I would have thought it would be more sensible to start at the next customer after where you had to stop. We also know from our neighbour that tankers are going back to their depot half-full as they can't get access to some places. How daft is that. You'd think it would be more sensible to ask the drivers what places they know they'll be able to reach. After all these guys visit these places all the time. We've been loyal customers of our supplier for about 30 years since we were in Lanarkshire and since my late father-in-law bought oil from them. I'm not sure I want to stay with them now after this.
What upsets me most is that we were going to spend Christmas with my daughter and son-in-law and grandkids and of course our other daughter and son. Obviously if we have no heating we can't go away and leave the house cos with our luck we'd come back to burst pipes. So I'm feeling a bit low to say the least.
Sorry to be a pain. I'd like to show you some of the cards I haven't had time to blog. Then I'm going to do some knitting to try to take my mind off all my cold bits lol!
The first two are using LOTV cute squares and various embossing folders. These cute squares have been invaluable as time got shorter and shorter.
Carol. Thanks for the inspiration Carol I managed to make some quick cards in time to get them posted for the last recommended day for 2nd class.
Thanks for looking.
