Happy St Patrick's Day

I decided to have a house cleaning day yesterday (yes it bores me to hell but needs must).  My day however was brightened by a knock on the front door, I opened it to find a dread-locked guy wearing a charity tabard type vest and a clip board. He asked me if I gave to charity....hahaha - I considered going all diva and giving him my blog address but in the end I just smiled and said "yes I do, would you like to see my charity tea cup collection", well the poor fella looked like I has just tried to lure him to his doom , "err ok thanks for your time" and ran off down the path. He he - if ever in doubt act crazy!  Made me smile for the day.

Would like to wish everyone a Happy St Patrick's Day

I will be celebrating with the Irish Half of my family :o)

    The last collector who came to my home asked if I was over 18 (yes I must look that young), I lied and said no and he believed it so promptly moved along to the next door! xx

  13. Well that's one way to get rid of door to door people!
