Very Odd Friday

During the week, on the Cocoa Daisy forum, there was a discussion on whether or not you use public transport. Having spent far too long on buses as a school kid (about 2 hours per day - good for reading - not much else), I swore I would never use buses again - well Ok, except when we were overseas and that was the only option...

So what happened today, I used the bus. Car in for service, Geoff in meetings, no alternative. Sigh. An hour on two buses instead of 15 minutes in the car... No more needs to be said.

And the plumbers are still here, digging a large hole in our back yard. sigh.

But as I cannot do any washing etc, I can do some scrapping. So the only photos I have taken in a couple of weeks (very bad) has been of Henry playing tennis on wednesday when the wind chill factor made the temp minus 4. It didn't seem right sending him off to play tennis in thick jumpers, gloves and a beanie...

I only took a couple of very ordinary photos before my lovely warm car beckoned me back, hmm does this make me a bad mother, and why am I asking this question a lot lately??? Oh well he enjoyed it (at least that is what I convinced him).

Using the latest Sketchy Thursday Sketch and lot s of fun digi stuff (new steam Punk Brushes by Jodie Lee available on the Jessica Sprague site).

And we have to wish Leah, one of the founding Dollies, a very Happy Birthday. Karen asked us to whip us a little something to help celebrate and I went digi again (falling back in love with digi..) with this -

So happy Birthday Leah!

And for those who have nominated more blogs to put on my list, thank you!! I am finding some very talented and interesting people out there. I will update again soon as I have a couple more to add to the list - please go check them out and become new followers - you will seriously put a big grin on these ladies faces!!

have a great day xxx

Well, I WISH we had good public transportation here! I spend too much time driving! But an adorable layout! Thanks for playing with Sketchy Thursdays!

Great layout - love the designs! Public transit where I live is pathetic. I'd have to get in a car to get to a bus and the only train we have goes back and forth on one street only and I live in Houston. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Sketchy Thursdays! xoxo
