Pressies, Feug Shui and packing!!

Look what that 'Crafty' Lady Mrs Nesbit sent me!!

It is gorgeous my own personal ATC and it is now pinned up next to my computer screen!! Now I said 'crafty' because not only is she talented in the craft department, she is crafty in the 'cunning' sense! As you may or maynot know ATC's are swops, which now means I have to make one to send to her and she knows how I've been struggling, I'm not good at coming up with ideas then cutting and glueing. By george you can tell she is/was a teacher!!!!!!!!

Now for something completely different..........

My husband is an astrologer and until I met him I did not really believe, anyway to cut a very long story short, he has proved himself over and over so I am now convinced that any personal chart is well worth a look.
Because he is very open minded, a number of years ago, when Feng Shui was the 'new' thing he went and got all the books and we had to put certain things in certain places around the house etc, etc. One of these was to put an aquarium of goldfish fish in the south east corner of our main room since 'the south east is generally regarded as the money corner in feng shui' placing water here is deemed very lucky. Now the book says you should have nine fish one of which 'must be black to absorb any bad luck meant for you' but if you have only a small tank then 2 gold and 1 black will be fine.

As you can see its nothing special, just a small tank. Now this has been set up for years and we have gone through loads of black fish, they just die for no apparent reason, whilst the gold one's live on quite happily! So are they absorbing the bad luck meant for us?? Well! whenever we are with out a black fish, money flows out of the house, things go wrong that need to be paid for, unexpected bills appear and we can't seem to keep any spare money, the girls need money for whatever, but as soon as another little black fish gets put back the flow stops!! It is totally amazing, I never believed that this tank would be so significant but it happens time and time again!
So why have I told this to you?
About 4 - 6 weeks ago hubby bought a new black fish which bought an infection into the tank and we nearly lost the lot, we weren't allowed to add fish for at least a month to allow for the infection to clear up so what have we had to pay out, the plumber had to come, the washing machine man, the exhaust on the car, 2 new tyres, suitcase, a very large bill to the surgeon for my op which would have been paid by the insurance if he had answered their e-mails (I shall be having words with him on Monday)brake pads, Year 11 theatre trip to name just a few.
So the new black fish has been added today

So save money get a fish tank and the other very important one is always keep the lids of the toilets down when not in use!!!

Tori is ready and packed and it appears Sassy's going too.

What a cool ATC. Denise went to art college and can do wonders with publisher - brilliant isn't she.

Me - I can't use stuff like that - need to go on a course - I am a paint , glue and stick person sadly.

Very intersting - your fish story - and what a posh new suitcase!
