N-O-T my day...

It's definitely not my day today...

First I battle for THREE (!) hours installing some printer software which keeps claiming it can't run because it needs "such" and "such" files etc. Back and forth. Back and forth. *tears out hair* After 3 1/2 hours, countless installs/un-installs/re-installs I finally get it to work. Only to receive some stamps in the post... Nice you think? Yes but my expensive woodmounted stamp is faulty. The foam cushioning is not done right. It's not as thick on one side which means it won't stamp that part of the image. I'm sure it will be sorted and everything, but just not what I needed today.

Then I go to put away one of those folding down stands that you hang washing to dry on. Only the leaver that you need to loosen is really stuck. I have to pull it with both hands (having to let go of the top of the stand) and it collapses down onto my thumb & index finger with such a force tears start running down my face and I can't help screaming out loud. *hand quickly held under ice cold water for what seems like an eternity*

...and here I am nearly two hours later and my fingers still hurt soooo much :( So no scrapping for me today. Instead I'm going to put up this little cute Xmas kitty with I just watercoloured. (Not as neat as I normally would - but hey, I am injured, right?)

He makes me smile. :) I need it!! LOL!
