Who is she?


Hi all.

In the few months we've been living in this house, there has been much speculation about the occupation of our (hot, young, skinny, blonde, remember all of that, it's important) next door neighbour, as she keeps funny hours. It's obvious she doesn't hold an office job and it worries me that we make too much noise during the day sometimes, when she may be trying to sleep.

As the kitchen is at the front of the house, it's perfect for Curtain Twitching Activity. The other night, Very Understanding Hubby was cooking dinner, (I like to keep him chained to the sink, but may now change the location of the sink I attach him too.) when suddenly he erupted into the sitting room. She's a nurse, she's a nurse! He'd just spotted our hot, young, skinny, blonde (have I mentioned that already?) next door neighbour, leaving for work, in what has to be described as a fairly tight nurses uniform. (I've seen it myself after further Twitching Duties.)

Anyhow, not too much more from me today, I need to get back to the kitchen. The house opposite us is having some kind of building work done, the builders like to drink their tea in the front garden and they are BUFF. Does anyone know how to do a sun dance?

I think you are very lucky having buff builders. The ones next door to me last year were obnoxious and never had their shirts on, just big bellys out all day!!!!!
Oh I feel sick, hang on a mo....
Thats better, better out than in!!!
HaHa
A NURSE....Right..Dx
Gorgeous card by the way. lOVE THE BROWN, and a HE image. Sweet One.

Jenny said...

What a tricky decision - craft room, buff builders, craft room, buff builders, craf ... who are we kidding. You can always make a card between 1 and 3 in the morning but those builders wont always be there. Cute card! Hugs Jenny B

Claire x said...

Hi Faye .... now then is she really a nurse or is she a stripper dressed up as a nurse???? The mystery will unfold, but in the meantime you have to move the sink so the OH can't see the hot skinny blond LOL. Fabulous card sweetie, love the LO. Hugs, Claire x

Jo said...

Buff builders eh? ;)

LOL i'm thinking the same as Mrs A re the HYSB's occupation, she might be a police officer next week :D

Glad you liked the sketch and what a marvellous card you've made using it too. Love those gorgeous papers, and how you've coloured the image.
This card rocks!

totally off subject... as I was typing just now I felt a tickle on my neck, it was caused by TWO grey hairs! I suppose I should be glad that i'm losing the grey ones and not the brown ones shouldn't I? LOL
I feel old, pass the icecream.
