an e-mail to let me know that the parcel has arrived safely is really all that's required...casting no aspersions on our Royal Mail (prone to lose stuff occasionally) postal service but it definitely makes my day when lovely crafty folks take the time to make me such a beautiful card...love the image and Lorraine's gorgeous colour work...I have a box full of little treasures such as these so a big thank you Lorraine for your kind thoughtfulness...it means a lot.Just to let you know that I'm devastated that my lovely dentist has apparently gone over to the dark side...all of a sudden he's joined the ranks of the bad guys...the SAD news is the old gnashers are in need of some TLC...I'm even more SAD that I'm booked in for another 2 torture and trauma visits...my teeth are on edge just at the thought.
I'm definitely a "wear my heart on my sleeve" kind of a person...if you pop over regularly you'll know exactly how I'm feeling on any particular day and today I'm MAD...spitting fire MAD in fact. The ugly side of the human race never fails to get my dander up...shocked...reviled and upset after reading some folks comments on Facebook about our wonderful Royal Baby news...the birth of a baby is a joyous occasion for every couple whether you're Royalty or Mr and Mrs Joe Bloggs down the street and if they've nothing nice to say...well to put it bluntly...they should keep their mouths shut and crawl back under the stones from whence they came...to call a little innocent baby a free-loading brat says more about their level of intelligence and moral fibre than anything else and believe me that was one of the mild ones...the rest were unfit for publication here. Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing but sadly the anonimity of social media sites seems to give people the idea that it's OK to be downright nasty and malicious...say whatever they like...make peoples' lives a misery and there will be no repercussions but things may be a-changing...folks are fighting back...standing up to these nasties...the "Don't Blame Facebook" documentary the other night made very interesting viewing...a nasty internet troll being tracked down and getting his come-uppance made my night and went a little way to restoring my faith in human nature.
OK rant over...the day can only get better...the morning stroll with my furry partner always lifts my spirits...a morning with the staff at Hobbycraft Aberdeen with the promise of coffee should be fun and meeting up with a friend for lunch will continue the mood so toodle-oo-for now and I'll see you all tomorrow.
