PostSubject: Some new Schleich for my collection   Tue 25 May 2010, 22:08

Yesterday started out bad but ended good.
At 1am, we had a leak under the sink which flooded the kitchen and half the living room. At 4am, we were pulling up all the kitchen tiles and the living room wooden flooring. Called the emergency plumber, couldn't come until 9:30am. So I stayed up until he arrived. He finally left at 11am and I went to bed because I had been up for over 24 hours. 1pm mum wakes me up and says we are going shopping. I really didn't want to go because I only had 2 hours sleep and it was very hot.

We went on a train to Cardiff. No idea we were going but she said it was especially for me Very Happy They have 3 shops in Cardiff that sell Schleich models !!!!

So I was very spoilt yesterday. The sun was shinning, I bought new Schleich models, had a gorgeous cream cake and I spent time with my mum.

Thank you Very Happy

Well he fixed the leak but his company are refusing to pay for all the damage caused.
Had the water gone on longer, it would have reached my Breyer model cabinets affraid Evil or Very Mad

They fitted the new boiler a week ago and they had to mess with the water pipe. It had been dripping all week but he said it was only residue. Obviously wasn't No

Sad story began and happy ending (closed Chapter). you make a right choice to go shopping with your mother and kick off with beauty figurines presented.

Indeed !

I took over 100 pictures today but most have turned out too dark. It must have been overcast when I took them bounce

I only have the cam on my cell-phone at the moment, so taking pictures for me was hard anyway, and that is why the quality isn't that good... No

But ok, i had to take several thousand pics, and it took me about one year to photographe them all! Shocked

Of course i take pics of all the new stuff when it comes in... Very Happy
