Through the Craftroom Door Challenge Blog - GD Spot

Hi everyone,
What a  wild, wooly day it turned into yesterday. So windy during the day (it blew the pilot light out on the hot water system) and then around 6p.m. we had an electrical storm. I was babysitting and Layla, the 4 year old starting off saying she liked Thunder and not the Lightning and by the time her Mum came to pick them up she was hiding from the Thunder too!!!. They had to travel home in the storm so hopefully she didn't get too scared. I didn't sleep all that well the night before so went and got ready for bed early and thought I would have a lie down for a while. Well, LOL that was that for me - I woke up after midnight, hubby had come to bed and was fast asleep. I got up to use the bathroom and back to bed and dropped off again. After that I had a fitful night. so when I woke this again this morning I didn't feel at all refreshed. LOL, hubby had even got up and gone to work without me even noticing!!! He must have had an early start..
My friend Fran and I went to Shirley's to make cards and I messed the first one up so badly because I just wasn't with it, but I improved and got the next two just right LOL.
We had lunch out and then popped in to a couple of craft shops to get some foam dots and a snowflake punch.
Back home and I spent the rest of the afternoon having a chat with Mum on the phone, doing my dishes and checking my e-mails. Hubby had a late job so didn't get home till just after 7 p.m. when I was just about out the door heading for choir practise. I put the salmon in the frying pan and left him to finish cooking. When I got home after rehearsal, I found out that he'd overcooked it. Oh well, it only takes a couple of minutes to dry fish out.

I was privileged to be chosen for a Guest Designer Spot for today over at Through the Craftroom Door Challenge Blog
