Trendy or not?

Morning bloggers
When oh when will this cold snap end? It's still icy cold here in Glasgow but at least the snow as stopped and we've not been as bad off as some others.
Would you believe my boiler has packed up!!!! Yip, the pilot light will not stay on so we have no heating or hot water AND they can't guarantee that they will get to us today as there is no one vulnerable in the house. So I'm sitting here in me little craft room with a plug in heater which is just about doing the job!!!

Now for the next tale of woe, yes there is more!! I just finished this card last night for my son's birthday next week. Now, I chose this image from Dotties World as Gordon just loves his hair, baldy bit and all lol it's all spiked up and sorted so you can't see it's thinning. Well last night we got a phone call, can you guess??? He'd only burned the front of it right off. Lighting a candle, he slipped and fell with it which resulted in him setting his well gelled hair on fire!!!! Now I know this could've been a whole lot worse and I shouldn't have laughed but I was pmsl until he sent me up a pic of him with it all shaved off. The poor soul looks terrible!!! So guess who is getting a bunnet for his birthday???
Right, we'll move quickly onto the challenges shall we?
