The lunatics have taken over the asylum

Hee hee, oh dear you wouldn't believe the embarrassment and hassle this card has caused me. It all started when I realised that I hadn't taken a picture of this card and wanted to post it today. I have been in work at 8 all this week and it has been too dark to take, so in desperation I took the card and my camera to work yesterday to get a good shot. On my break out comes the camera with me running around the surgery looking for the 'sweet spot' to take it. Unbeknown to me I had been spotted by the Doctor half hanging out the window with two bits of copy paper, a handmade card and my camera trying to take a professional shot. LOL! if he hadn't given me the weirdest look! what must he have been thinking! I was speechless - how could I explain, what could I have said! I think we both must have thought maybe it's best to think we hadn't seen each other ha!

Hence the title for today, as I'm sure if he knew exactly what I was doing maybe he would have called for the men in white coats lol! I would also like to give a special mention to great blogging buds Aimes and Lesley, a big thank you to you both, Aimes for the fabulous blog award and Lesley for offering amazing blog candy of which I was the winner - yipeee. How lucky are we to part of such an amazing hobby and to have such generous and kind friends - so thank both so much.

Have a sane day & see you tomorrow xx
