It won't make the news but...

Hi folks...if you tune in regularly to The 9 o'clock News on TV...you'll know that most of the time it's a load of doom and gloom...the economy...the weather or at the moment...the whole Scottish Independence Referendum thingie...I personally don't think it's a good idea for Scotland to break away from the United Kingdom but we live in a free democratic country and I respect that everyone is entitled to their opinion...well I should say...everyone who was born in Scotland and is currently residing in Scotland...I fail to see why the likes of Sean Connery...David Bowie and the rest of the celebs who are jumping on the bandwagon are sticking their oar in when the result of the referendum will have no effect on their lives...they don't live here and don't pay taxes into the UK economy so really their opinion is of no consequence.  OK now that I've got today's little irritation off my chest...time for our little bit of news from the cubbyhole...unlikely to make tonight's news programmes but I'm shouting from the rooftops anyway that Saturday's workshop projects are in the bag after a bit of a stuttery start...
the kitting was coming along nicely too until I went to my workshop blank card box to find that I'd obviously been dipping in but never replacing...resulting in the sum total of 4 cards and where is my cubbyhole partner when I need him...the mention of the word "work" and The Furry Boy suddenly remembers he has a pressing appointment with his favourite snoozy sofa no less...so nothing else for it...the remaining member of the crew is left to look out the scoreboard and guillotine and get stuck into 2 boxes of 300gsm Diamond White Cardstock...


but I can always rely on the company of a certain Mr Buble (woohoo only 10 more sleeps until I'll actually be in the same room with the gorgeous man himself...albeit along with thousands of others) and a constant stream of caffeine to get the job done...said box is now fully stocked but I've got a sneaky feeling that the Fiskars Kitting Marathon for The NEC may well amend that statement and put me right back to square one.
And don't forget...what's good for the goose is also good for the gander...2 can play at The Furry Boy's little game so I'm ditching the work hat...ignoring the crafty list for today...the woohoo news is it's time to play with the new goodies and hopefully nail my DT card for Penny Black Saturday at the same time.
Hugs Kath xxx

We have the same kind of ongoing deal/issue with Quebec and Canada..(don't get me started)! I hear you about the referendum ( it's SO not necessary!!). I think one country is a good idea, why can't everyone see that and want to separate/being different? Love your Fiskar kitting and I am happy that your exciting event is coming up...oh Mr. Buble!! xoxo

Good Morning Kath. I totally agree with every word you have said. Staying together is the common sense thing to do. Don't get me on my soap box. Anyway, you have been busy. Hope I get time off from my nursing duties and get to meet up at the SECC. Hugs to the Furry Boy too. Rita xxxx

I hope Scotland stays within the UK, makes no sense to me to break away. Enjoy your day

A helicopter would sort your card blanks problem out - one pair of willing hands here, only problem is it's an awfully long way!

Hi Kath, you have been a busy girl, you deserve some play time now. I don't want to be split up, they go on about the oil, but they are forty years too late...Trish
