So today - well busy day at work and complaining to my letting agency about the "leak /Torrential downpour" that is my bedroom.
I just LOVE my letting agency - when my fridge broke it took 7 weeks - so the expectations on fixing a potential ceiling collapse leak situation where pretty low.
Afte having them on repeat dial from 9am they finally answered the phone at 10.
Came back to me at 2pm to say that "the company" they use (LIKE how many flippin builders are out there - is it just one?) were very busy today and couldn't come out till tomorrow .........
I calmly replied - Not a problem - I have my landlords mobile number and will let him know as potentially if it rains tonight he has a major problem on his hands .............
Funny - they came back within 10 minutes to say someone will be out later today.
SO at 3.30 I get a call at work to say they will be here in 40 minutes - so I leave work early and hack it home.
AND Bob the builder and his buddy (who I think was actually 12 years old) turn up.
They would love a cuppa - well yes fix the roof.
Oh dear they don't have a ladder - didn't realise one was needed.
OK - So at this point I am very tempted to ask if they thought I lived in a 4 foot tall house - what with it being a ROOF that needs fixing. BUT instead I smile sweetly and suggest they find a ladder and when they do I will reward them with a cuppa.
So off they trot - reappear with a ladder and fix it. PHEW.
And poor sods - it peed it down while they were up there - BUT if they had had a ladder when they first arrived they would have been home before the rain started! All heart me eh?
SO then I surf the web and find my sis has an In The Attic Show on - and of course it would be rude not to slob in front of the PC and watch it. AND BOY do they go on and on and on - 2 hours! 2 Hours when I should be crafting!
Have to say it was great to see the gang together again and I have very fond memories of pre full time work days ........... chilling out with the gang, making tea .......... bliss.
So they are off to Europe now - and I would love to be able to tag along as glorified tea maker / companion - but sadly work calls. (MUST remember to book tea lady slot for Glastonbury though!!)
SO if you have got this far - I bet you are wishing I had crafted eh? Posts are much shorter and less rambling - BUT I like to ramble once in a while!!!!
So off to find pics and paper to do a LO tomorrow night ............... Back to crafting Bex
Love n Hugs to all

And today has been a bad one.
Had some really sad news today that someone who I adored has died of a heart attack - and he was only 36. I won't say too much - only that don't ever think Cocaine is fun and recreational and trendy - it IS NOT. It F's you up and takes hold of you and you are not in control - LEAVE IT ALONE.
And so on that note - here endeth the lesson of Bex
Sorry - no crafting today x
I will be back soon with happy crafty posts - promise - let me have a day to wallow in PJ's first xxxxxx

Roll on tomorrow when I plan to be in PJ's all day crafting x
So if you want to play then check out the Forum for some new challenges x
Have a good one all,

You had the most infectious laugh I have ever known. You had the ability to make everyone laugh – half the time you were laughing so hard you couldn’t explain what was funny – but we all found ourselves laughing with you. (And at you!) You had a total lack of ability to control your laughter once you started, and the memory of you in your “headmistress” hat setting off 120 children during Father Robin’s sermon at Mass will stay with me forever x Although no one ever did work out what set you off …………….
And now I have moved on to the challenge set around a colour wheel website where you are given 3 colours to scrap with.
OK I am not impressed with my colours but will report back!!!!!
Hope you are all well and enjoyed a lovely BH weekend
