And the beat goes on............

So, for me, this week seems to have been one endless nightmare!
My child seems to be running some kind of personal hate campaign against me, really he does! So this week has been filled with endless tantrums, tears, and naughtyness and I have felt like I'm really struggling to maintain control.

Friday Morning I felt like I needed a bit of me time, a bit of a pampering and de-stress so I booked an appointment with my local salon to have some acrylic nail extensions and some false lashes applied............The nails are fab until this morning when I snapped half of my thumb nail off trying to put little man's shoe on. The lashes are hideous on one side and amazing the other, gawd knows how that worked out but I'm not very impressed and needless to say I wont be having those done there again!

But the icing on the cake had to be yesterday tea time/ evening when I had pootled off to tesco to do my weekly shop, I thought I would quickly nip in the petrol station on the way in as it was fairly quiet, now actually i'm really glad that I did because my debit card wouldn't work at the pump or in the cash machine, and as it turns out someone has so very nicely forged my card details and been helping themselves to a whole host of goodies using my account. Its left me feeling quite downhearted and a bit put out because now to access any cash from my account I have to go to my local branch which is 10 miles or so away. Grrrrrrrrrrr

So now I feel, that instead of my blog being a place to share my crafty musings with you all its quickly becoming a place where I rant on and on like some crazed lady!

Hopefully my week next week will get a whole lot better :)

The Curious Case...........

......of the missing crochet hook! Yes, it seems that we have 'Borrowers' living in our house at the minute. Production of my crochet blankets has today abruptly come to a halt as not one, but two crochet hooks appear to have gone missing without trace. Those of you who have read my blog before will know that I'm not the most capable crafter when it comes to finishing my craft projects, I start them, yes but mainly they get put aside and relegated to the murky depths of my craft cupboards in the land of spare 'oom! This was going to be something different however, I could feel it in my toes.... I enjoy getting lost in a world of hooky goodness, curling up on the sofa and being surround with scrummy balls of wool.......aahhh! I'm missing it already :(

So, this weekend there will be no crochet goodness from me until I find those dratted hooks. I thought that maybe I had just misplaced them and sooner or later they would emerge, a little dusty perhaps but still in one piece, however, I'm now seriously considering the 'borrowers' theory :: Little things seem to have been misplaced recently, odds and sods that you really wouldn't notice had gone unless you actually needed them for a specific I come to think of a whole host of things have been missing around the house for a while, normally the small person shoulders the blame for this because usually when you ask him where said item is he will gleefully speed off to retreive it for you. Thinking about it this week I've manged to loose a square baking tin (perfect for making homely dishes such as toad in the hole) a whole 12 pack of crisps (prawn cocktail flavour to be precise) about 3 pairs of scissors, the upholstry tool from my hoover and now my 2 crochet hooks! It would seem that I am becoming a bit senile in my old age!

Oh but to imagine if there really where such creatures as borrowers this would explain so many of life's little mysteries. I'm sure you have all had a similar experience where things have strangley gone missing from your home never to found again? I wonder what they would do with all these things, I wonder if beneath our floorboards there is a wealth of lost treasures.............waiting for some future historian to find them?

Hmmmm, maybe I should set a trap and see if I can catch one of these little creatures out!
