Water, water, and more water.

Good evening all, 
I do hope you have had a good day and not been stuck in these flood waters. 
My journey to Hazel Grove this morning was not too bad, but oh 
the journey home. 
Well, it all started as I was locking the gate to the church car park, I heard a crunch...
the sort of sound like metal on metal. 
Oh yes, a lady had reversed into my car.
She had even been parked on double yellow lines, 
So we exchanged details, and yes I was kind and didn’t get cross with her. 
So this made me a bit late.

Then the A555 that I normally use is closed with flooding. 

So I had to drive through Bramhall, 
Well I did try but at the roundabout it was under water with a coach stuck in the middle 
Of the road. 
Luckily I remembered a short cut, so off I went. 
Only to then find out that the Allderley bypass was closed too. 

So another route had to be found. 
All this on a day when I needed to be home as it was the first time Eric had been 
left all day after the death of Tess. 
It took me over 2 hours to get home, and I have to say the small country roads 
had lots of flood water too.

So I do hope that all the Crafters from today’s workshops got home ok.
Hugs to all.

It is very scary driving through such large amounts of water.
I will certainly sleep tonight. 

The workshops themselves were lovely 
and it was so good to see everyone. 

We had a play with Acrylic shapes, yes , my new obsession.
We used a variety of stamps  from Aall & Create. 

The first card used stamped tissue behind the shape. 

The second card was a nice quick and easy , clean and simple design, 

An alternative that would suite many occasions. 

Thank you for your company today ladies, 
Take care all.
Stay safe. 

Much love and hugs

  1. Oh JO I know how you feel - we had to drive home from Kendal on the day Storm Desmond struck- it was a nightmare trying to find a way out through the floods with all the roads closing down.
    So glad you made it back safely and hope all your ladies did too. Xx
