One of my favourite sugar nellie stamps coloured with pro markers and again my Martha Steward deep daisy punch (i adore it!).
So ladies what a week ive had so far. As you know 2009 was horrendous but i had high hopes for 2010. However these were dashed pretty quickly.
Before christmas my son had an accident in his car, nothing serious but was his fault, he was given a choice of an advanced driving course or to take his luck in court. We decided to go for the advanced driving course, firstly to save him getting points on his license and also though the advanced driving could only be of benefit. This course cost us little short of £200 and should have taken place Monday morning. My son is not good under pressure and we thought it would be a nightmare getting him there, but to our surprise and relief he got himself up and on his way, in what we thought was plenty of time. We got a phone call shortly after he left saying he had only got down the road just past the carriageway exit and caught up in a traffic jam. There had been an accident, hubby phoned the centre to say he might be late, to which they informed us that would be okay. Son arrives at centre an hour late to be told he couldn't do the course as he was so late!!!!!!!!!!!! they said they had to inform the police he hadn't turned up and they would then send the paperwork of the accident straight to the court ------ aaaaagggggghhhhHH!!!!! anyway my son explained he had been caught up in traffic to which they replied everyone else got here. Son explains we had phoned and they said it would be okay, eventually he had to give them his postcode and they obviously went to check out his story and came back and said they would phone the police, explain the situation and try and re-arrange the course. Thankfully they believed him and today he got his new date. One problem solved.
Then yesterday night son's foot slips off the brake pedal outside the house and hits the front door wall of the house!!!!! OMGGGGGGG!!!!! the builder came out today has had to put a steel joist in to stop the roof falling in!!!! and the wall has to be taken down and completely rebuilt. Can things possibly get worse? we are not sure yet if the house insurance will pay out, or if we will have to claim on sons car insurance. We still have the ongoing claim from the accident he had before christmas! s0 if i seem a little stressed and low, you will understand why.
Now ive bored you all to death, moaning yet again! onto something a little brighter!
