This is one morning I am so happy that I looked at my blog comments after checking the bank balance. I love you ladies and thank you for making me laugh, smile and cry tears of happiness.
As for the bank balance well it's a story of FRUSTRATION!!!! Remember we 'sold' our house - a long, long, long, long time ago. The house was put on the market in February this year, just after my birthday (12 April) we received an 'Offer to purchase'. The estate agent said this was an easy sale, there would be NO problems. Firstly, never ever believe what you are told!!! We are now into December, the idiots who have bought our house are holidaying and getting married in Namibia and it shouldn't surprise me - they have not paid there rent. We are horrible people for demanding it - all we care about is money - are we going to pay for their wedding. Well it appears we ARE paying for the &*%^$? wedding. It makes putting gifts under the tree harder but I WILL get through this somehow.
To top it all off I have to remove my wine stoppers from my Etsy shop because the rubber washers are degrading!!! These are the locally bought ones (yet imported crap, from India, I think) from our one and only *&%$? -ing Supplier. I should not be surprised though - I knew I was taking a HUGE risk. It would appear that if I want to make wine stoppers I will have NO other choice but to buy my bases for my wine stoppers from the USA - at least I can get quality!!
But I will find the holiday spirit, somewhere. I will boldly move forward, no matter what!!
To all my other Arteests - love you all!!
