So tonight I crossed yet another example of how society is crumbling around us. On my way home from work I was approaching some traffic lights, doing a steady 30mph, on my left was a bus just pulling in to a stop and the car behind it overtook the bus without indicating or slowing down and nearly slamming right into me. I hit my horn really hard and as I apporached the next set of lights where I turn off to go home, this young 'lady' (and trust me, if we were face to face and I wasn't writing this for everyone to read, I wouldn't be using that word to describe her!!) actually slowed her car down and wound her window down to flick the V's at me before I turned the corner!!! How unbelievable is that? She nearly runs me into some traffic lights and yet I'm the villain of the piece because I had the temerity to sound my horn in her general direction. I'm telling you peeps, I really do not like a large portion of today's society, they are crass, rude, selfish and thoughtless - a winning combination eh!
I have had a fairly good week and it got a little better today when we managed to get the gardener in, yes there was a sufficient enough break in the weather that actually allowed the grass to dry out long enough for him to be able to cut it. There's so much pleasure in seeing your garden looking all tidy and bright green and yet I can't think of anything worse than walking back and forth with a hover-mower and tidying all the edges up, I would sooner iron or hoover, at least you can TRY to keep your carpets clean but there is no way on God's green earth you are gonna stop the grass growing!! My back and Jo's hip have always stopped us doing the gardening but if I'm honest I wouldn't do it if I could. When I left school I worked on a YTS (remember those!!) scheme as a landscape gardener prettying up a rundown village near me and I think that pretty much put me of gardening for life.
On to my latest creation and this week over at Kenny K's Krafty Krew the theme is Get Sporty! The image I have used is called Strong Island (available here) and the cardstock is Basic Grey with a couple of Memory Box dies and a lovely bird embellie from Tim Holtz. I am really enjoying my time on Kenny's blog, I know it's still early days but the enjoyment I get from colouring his images is just immense and I feel really proud to be a part of such a creative team. Hope you like the card and keep you eyes open for another creation any day now,
