"You Should Be Dancing..."

Oh Blessed relief! This has taken me three days to post so I really hope you think it was worth it Gentle Reader. It's just typical that Internet Explorer does it's own thing at the most inopportune moments and it is only by a stroke of luck I managed to work out how to do it in Google Chrome!!
Anyhoo, how are you? The weather isn't too bad at the moment so nothing to moan about there, I am sick of hearing myself talk about my ills and ails so not even going to go near that, so what to say?
Well, I am laying here watching a fantastic piece of TV on (you would never believe it!) Channel 5 about Gibraltar: Britain in the Sun. Most people wouldn't really bother with this show unless you have visited it or like myself, lived there (for three years). I would go back to Gib in a heartbeat, it was the best three years I spent in the Royal Air Force and I have so many fantastic memories of my time there.
Living somewhere where the sun shines over 300 days a year has a really positive effect on your mental health and you just tend to live a more energetic life, you go out more, you stay out for longer and you get to live in a true multicultural society; there were Jewish people living alongside Moroccans who in turn live next door to Spanish people, who rub shoulders with Indian and Pakistani people who live next door to both British and Gibraltarian alike, and while they may not all be throwing street parties with each other, they are living together side by side in harmony (just like Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney predicted) with surprisingly little drama, now who could object to living like that eh?
On to the latest card and as you can see, I have gone with a different look and tried my hand at a man's card (with a little twist!), this is the sort of card I would send to my son and he would remind me "I'm a Geek, not a Nerd Dad!", like there's a difference. I have used Basic Grey card throughout and the little man and woman are free stamps from Craft Stamper magazine. The image (from Kenny K is called Let's Party and is available here for $3.50.
Don't forget that you still have a couple of days to enter the Kenny K Krafty Krew Challenge before our brand spanking new challenge on Sunday and there is also a new launch to get excited about as well, so Sunday really has it all going on this weekend!
Anyhoo, I'm off,
see you again soon,
