My Little Cart!

Hello Everyone, Happy Valentine's Day!  Did you all get cards or did you just make some?  Alistair loved the one I made for him, thought it was quite a hoot.

 I hope you've all had a good day and you have been able to have plenty of time to have fun and craft.
Me, well I was working and what a woozier of a day it was. As usual short staffed, and some very needy folk who all wanted attention at the same time.  The place was going like a fair, at one point I suddenly realised that four people were talking AT me all at once, the phone was ringing and the doorbell buzzing as someone wanted in, couldn't find my colleague, two of the clients were having a shouting match with some pretty foul words, and I thought "that's it, it's finally happened, I'm now mad and I'm in Bedlam".  Susan, then appeared, with another of our clients who was in a flood of tears, I have say to Susan herself looked as if she was having a nervous breakdown.  We looked at one another and burst into hysterical laughter, it shut everyone though and one very kind client asked if she could make us a cuppa. We finally pulled ourselves together and got folk sorted out.  Half and hour later our manager arrived, and said "all quiet then, that's good".  There was no time to have a debriefing about it all, and why certain things happened, but the main cause is too little staff to cope with the volume of clients, but it's across the board in the care business. So just tomorrow to go and then my days off, can't wait, poor Susan has to go until Saturday.

I had this little card in the bank so to speak, too tired to put my thinking cap on tonight to make a new one;
The colour hasn't come out too well, it is really quite colourful.

Another Paintshop Poppets decoupage form the CD, as is the sentiment and backing papers, silver miri card, bow and glitter.

I want to say thanks to everyone who left comments on my last card, very much appreciated.
That's me for tonight, I need an early night, cheerio

Just sitting having 5mins to myself had to be in for just after 7am mummy broke down on the M90 last night AA where terrible took them 2 1/2 hours to send someone out to her and then it was only a pick up truck. So she has had to get the train. Take care. Hazel
