Can it get worse??

Well I had a good wake up call this morning. My husband was just ready for work and was dozing back off to sleep. He opened the front door to go to his car and there was an empty space where my car should be.

I just cannot believe that someone has nicked my car - which was just under our bedroom window and we had the window wide open. I cannot believe that I never heard them. I usually jump out of bed at every little noise. The one thing that I think is strange is that the night before I heard a car pull up in the early hours of the morning and I jumped out of bed and there was a taxi parked across the road but I never saw anyone get out of it. I wonder if he was "casing the joint"

I am so disappointed because I don't want to have to buy a new car. Mine is a 20year old Vauxhall Calibra with about 50,000 miles on the clock. I would just love to get my hands on the "person" who took it.

Then I have been for my hair cutting (we have a Presentation Night on Friday and a Christening on Saturday) and when she showed me the back I thought "Oh no I look like a boy!"

I walked home wondering what is going to happen next. I got home and washed it and dried it myself and now it looks ok - more like my profile photo.

I have made a man's card using the LOTV Challenge sketch.

I hate making men's cards but I thought this wasn't too bad and I have kept it fairly simple because it will have to go through the post.

It looks like he has a pint of Guiness in his hand (that is what my husband used to drink but now he has gone on to the Real Ales)

The papers are from Pink Petticoat. Thank you for looking and have a good evening.

I think I might have a glass of port and a lay down!!! Only jesting!

can you believe the braisen face of some people what is this world coming to we well my dad had his car stolen once but the funny thing was they brought it back before we realised it had gone the only reason we found out was the fact the coppers came to our house and accused my boyfriend (now hubby) of nicking they said they had pulled him over and he had another girl in the card with him we both looked at each other and started to laugh as he was in bed with me all night as he lived with us I do hope you get it back
