Happiness Is A Hot Cup Of Tea ..... Sketch Saturday Challenge #198

I bet you're all :-& of hearing from me :-@ .... the 3rd post in as many days, after over a week of silence !  Yesterday was another day off from Project Paula and was spent at the hairdressers .   It was absolutely manic there with a member of staff being off, which meant that my Auntie was now double booked :-S.  So, I was roped in making copious amounts of ~O) and in charge of the floor.  Not to mention the millions of towels I washed and dried!!!  I finally got my hair done 3 hours after my appointment time :-O.  

What's planned for today?  A trip to Homebase at Derby :)... now, this is said loosely, we've never actually found it when i've been driving  just spent a couple of hours driving up and down the A38 :D .... better make sure we have Cynthia SatNav with us!

This weeks Sketch Saturday challenge is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!   :D/
