Lil Susie

Hello Everyone...

Another day has dawned here, and I'm nearly dreading it...back to my 'man' today..

This is how the the system works...just so you're in the picture.

This man had an accident, went to the Dr.and was put on ACC [accident compensation] and asked what sort of help would he need...he must have said house work and washing etc, as  his arm is all strapped up to his body....so the Dr gives him a form for my work,[ they] my work, dont  assess the situation like the hospital does, and sent me in blind...I could have walked out...but I need the money[how sad] and as I said I like a challenge.

Just another small detail I left out yesterday...I put a new bag in the vacuume...twice ..and
have not got it all yet..I used a paint scrapper on the kitchen floor where his cat eats..have the rest of the floor to do today...but hot water and handy andy will fix that...At least the worst will be over and it will be easier the following week...that of course depends on what he has been up to in the last 2 days...lol...but I think he would have cleaned up his breakfast mess..and I think he will tell me that he did.. like a proud child...as he was so embarrassed, and I dont think he saw what the place looked like until I started to work....then he opened his eyes...now I know why my Mother always used to say to us kids "have you got clean knickers on...as you never know"...well said Mumxox.

Rightio...onto a card to share,have to get ready for work, have 'My Lady' first thing...cleaning..yikes!
.

This little cutie is from artist Heather Valentin...form Scrapbook Stamp Society  and is my 'DreamTeam' DT card for this week.



Still got that attitude look in the eye, but so lovely to colour..meet "Lil Sue"



and she was coloured with pencils, 60's designer papers from 'Jillybean' and a giant flower as background..I paper pieced her dress and stool..which was rather fiddley..big pink blings in her flowers..and a chipboard tag,tied with vevet cord.

There you go all done...

Thanks for all your wonderful comments and thank you so much to my new follower, lovely to have you join me...

Will see you all tomorrow...isn't it nice to be able to comment on blogs again...to 90% at least.

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy,I have done the same job like you do years ago and I had a lovely old man 86 at that time and a big smoker,the wood around his windows were brown but when I want to clean them ,they were white lol
The first few weeks it was very hard working but when to whole house was clean it was easy lol
What a sweet card ,love the big flower!
