Good News

Sarah had an interview on Friday for a job which she has been temping in now for nearly two years and she was short-listed along with one other, but thank goodness Sarah got the job, Yippeee only trouble is the money she was going to use to get a flat she had to buy a car with so now she is having to save up all over again, so she will be living with us for a few months yet.

I have been asked if I would like to display my candles in a crafty shop which is highlighting local people's craft so have said yes please so am off to do that in a moment plus go and post Wendy's goodies that she won as I did not get around to it yesterday as Alan was home, he took time out bless him to do all the jobs I am no longer able to do.  Cleaned windows and washed all the frame work, washed all the skirting boards in every room and then pulled furniture out to clean behind and under in all the rooms, gave the oven a really good clean and all the cupboards in the kitchen and then scrubbed down the bathroom so everywhere is looking lovely and clean.

Here is the last of my commissioned cards for a little boy who loves rugby and is going to be 12 at the end of this month

the image is a LOTV stamp and coloured in with spectrum noir pens still not got to grips with hair but getting there slowly with my colouring.  

Well am off to finish tidying my craft room, will be back later to do a bit of blog hopping so 
bye for now
