Problems, Problems

Good morning to all and a special hello to my new followers. Hope you are all well.
What is happening to the weather. No like this rain and high winds. I'm really lucky that when it floods I'm on the top of the hill but when the wind blows, OMG, gotta put rocks in your coat pocket.
Shouldn't complain though at least we don't have the devestation like that left behind in NY.
Well here we are onto another Friday and we gallop ever closer to C........s.
Are you all super organised ladies or like me, who makes lots and lots of lists, who to send cards to, who to buy presents, for what food to buy, what meat to order.......
then loose the lists and have to do another
then loose that one
then run round at the last minute promising myself that next year I am gonna be more organised.
lol, all good fun!
Well my daughter is working all over Christmas so trying to organise meal times is real fun, specially when you have the MIL coming
Please let the meat be cooked just right and the veg not over cook and it be hot when it gets to the plate just for one meal
I can hear her saying , your SIL does this,  your SIL does that, we usually eat at such and such a time, I make the stuffing.............
Wonder if I could be stuffing her in the oven, now there's a few meals!
Only joking guys, my oven's really small tee hee,

  1. Hi Sue,
    Stunning card, wonderful detail and deserves to be shown. You appear to have used up your storage on your Picasa Album where Blogger stores you pictures. You will need to delete some pictures or reduce the size of these and this will free up storage. If you feed in Picasa as a search it should take you to your album. I am no expert but if you get stuck send me an email.

  2. Hello Sue, I think lots of people have been having this problem. I hope you get it sorted
