… but that´s not a matter of course.
I had a few very unpleasant days… let me tell you the story:
Last Wednesday I was so happy and full of joy, because I finally got Dorcas´ Blog Candy – so many beautiful things!! Thanks again!
And she sent me such a sweet card with even sweeter words in it!
But then…. later in the evening our unit which is responsible for the heating and the hot water, stopped working.
I called the customer service, but they were very unprofessional, made 2 mistakes and so my hubby and I had to endure 5 (!) days in a house with 13°C/55°F room temperature and -5°C/23°F outside. And we had no hot water to take a shower or warm our hands.
So you can imagine that I really wasn´t in the mood for being creative or blogging – I was angry!!! *gggrrr*
To ease the situation I made soufflés and cakes (chocolate cake with raspberries!) in the oven which was the only source for warmth.
Ok. Enough of that. Since yesterday the unit is working again and it´s warm in here again :-)
Not long ago I needed a quick packaging/gift-wrapping for our 3 nephews – they´re 7, 8 and 13 – to put money and sweets inside… because I had really no time, I remembered this kind of packaging – so quick and easy and still not usual – the boys liked them and opened them very carefully although they´re usually more on the wild side:
I left them quite plain to achieve a more masculine look - the embellished side was the one to open the packaging.
So, this was my sign of life - enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!
