Lonely This Christmas at Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Well apparently according to one of our national newspapers we are due an Arctic winter, given they said this last year and the year before forgive me if I am somewhat sceptical about such a promise. However, I am ever hopeful for a little bit of snow! This young man is Lonely This Christmas, not sure how good a companion a snowman or, possibly (I'm saying nothing about the spare snowballs), snowwoman will be but you never know, in true Raymond Brigg's style, what will happen in the night!

You can find Lonely This Christmas HERE and why not check out the site for more Christmas goodies both now and in the upcoming months (actually not many months now). Late summer has appeared here in the north west of England so shorts here I come, then again maybe not, hope you all have a good weekend

Flossie Bumblethorpe at Dr Digi's House of Stamps

She might be a bit rickety, but she's as sharp as a tack as long as you get her between 9 and 10 in the morning after her hearty breakfast porridge! Never mess with dear Flossie as she is lethal with that zimmer frame, a crack on the back of the ankles with that thing and you'll be hobbling for a week!

You can find Flossie Bumblethorpe HERE and the sentiment I used was from Funny Sentiment Sheet 2, to be found HERE, hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Bath Time Deirdery with Dr Digi's House of Stamps

In our modern fast world, there's a lot to be said for a shower, in and out, all clean within minutes, however when you need to relax there's even more to be said for a lovely hot, bubbly bath. What better day to relax than on your birthday, especially if the accompanying cup of tea is made by someone else and, of course, there's no limit to the number of ducks you can have!

You can find Bath Time Deirdery HERE and here's hopingyou all have a relaxin' kinda weekend even if it isn't your birthday!

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 239- Winter Birthday

Good evening fellow bloggers, oops this should have been posted this morning! Over at I♥ProMarkers this week we have a new theme, Winter Birthday. It's actually still quite mild here in this part of England, 1st October, no heating on and sat by an open window, long may it continue!

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Dr Digi's House of Stamps who is offering the winner's choice of 2 digital images. I chose to use one of my favourite Christmas images and figured they could just as well be singing Happy Birthday as singing Jingle Bells.

Two Fat Boys

There comes a time in many a man's life when the world of two wheels beckons and a Harley Fat Boy is just the answer for Aubrey Bumblethorpe! A life on the open road, his wife breathes a sigh of relief as whilst he's out with his mates on a Sunday afternoon riding over the moors, she gets a bit of peace and a chance to catch up on Strictly and Downton!

You can find Two Fat Boys HERE and the two separate fat boys HERE and HERE.
