I'm soooooo lame, lol!!


Hope you're all well on this sunny afternoon?  Well, I hope it's sunny for you?  It's much cooler today after yesterday's massive thunder storms, gosh someone above the clouds was in a bad mood, lol!  I'm pleased it's cooled down though, one sleepless hot and bothered night was enough for me.  Although I do love the sun, it puts us all in a good mood doesn't it, but I don't like not sleeping!!  And I'm umpiring tonight and to try and do that in Monday night's heat must've been unbearable!!  Speaking of netball, I went and watched my girls play last night (like a good captain does) and had a little practise shooting, my first time since the break!  I wasn't back playing or anything like that, just a little mess about with the girls before the game but I have to say I was very impressed with my shots on target and even more impressed that it didn't hurt too much either, wahooooo!!  I'm hoping to get back playing for the winter league (which starts in September) and after last night I'm feeling very hopeful that I'll do it, happy days  :o))

So, why am I sooooooooo lame??  Well it's because I've spent virtually the whole afternoon trying to sell myself for a job I've applied for, I'm really not a sales person and not good at bigging myself up!!  In fact it's safe to say I'm pretty damn useless at it, lol!!  But, as I was typing away responding to this email I thought to myself 'you're quite a clever girlie and you do know your stuff!'  So why does feel like you're pulling your teeth out?!!  Aggghhhhh, I know why.....because I'm so lame lol!!

Ok, enough waffle and onto my card!  This one I made for my Uncle...

Close up of LOTV's 'Deckchair Dreaming'.....hmmmm could do with some of that myself right now!...

Inside of card...

Right I'm going to get on now, I wanted to spend the afternoon in my craft room so I'm a bit behind now, lol!  Have a great evening all and I'll see you soon  :o))

Lady, you are not lame. It's hard going applying for jobs and a bit demoralising too. But you're there and you're doing it. If you weren't and were sitting feeling sorry for yourself, maybe. But you're not. Hugs. Big Hugs.

P.S Fab news about netball, but be careful. xxx

Hiya Cazza, this is soooo gorgeous! Love the papers and the ribbon matching the deckchair!
