Thorny Affair

Hope you are all keeping warm and safe. The snow is still with us and the pavements are very bad but so far l have managed to stay on my two feet.
Had a busy day - the car went for its first MOT and passed - phew how relived am l, the thought of motor bills is not one l want at the moment. Got home and my package from my follower candy win at LOTV had arrived and WOW . 7 single stamps, a stamp sheet and some die cuts - how lucky am l, thanks LOTV.    Took Toby to his training - he just loves all the treats he gets and is not too interested in working for them lol, then on the way home found £10 on the pavement must be my lucky day (maybe my £130 that blew out of cash machine and never to be seen again cash will blow back to me too).  I am putting the whole tenner on lucky dips on friday and l can just see the headlines -
 Lucky £10 find turns into multi millions... just think l could have all the craft stash l ever wanted and invite you all around to play. So time to stop dreaming and get on with the card. This is one of the two Penny Black stamps l bought at Harrogate in J&C Creations reduced box - love a bargain.
