My scrapbooking/blogging world has definitely been taking a back step to the real world lately.
Just when we are trying to save some money for the new house, all our old things are reaching the end of their lives. The headlights on the car both blew (again - third pair in 18 months!!), the printer died (eeep) and the washing machine man just left with the bad news that our lovely machine needs a new gearbox and is cheaper to get a new one... I hate the fact that it was considered old at 15 - what happened to the machines of our youth that went on and on (sometimes to my mothers despair when she really would have liked some new stuff I think..).
I am just hoping the hot water service holds out til we move, I think I can go without most other things but a washing machine and hot water are two necessities.
Geoff's Mum is also quite ill at the moment, so Geoff is going to go visit her tonight for a few days - hopefully that will cheer her up. We are all a bit worried to be honest.
And although the printer is out of action, I have been stocking up on digi supplies from The Lilypad, loved the Making Lemonade kit. All within in my current budget as well.
And I have (vaguely) used the current sketch over at Get Creative. Greece is going through some terrible times at the moment so hopefully the scrapping girls get some enjoyment from their craft.
Just a reminder of two things, first my charity giveaway, I've raised just over $200 so far which I'm really pleased with, if you can give a couple of dollars I would really appreciate it and you get to go into the prize draw for a couple of big scrapbooking prizes.
And secondly, the Valentines blog hop for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge is still on - lots of giveaways along the hop - check out the details here. Easy to enter that one.
Off to but a printer now and check out new washing machines, sigh - I loved my old printer and my old washing machine...
Have a good one. xx
