Repentance and Remedies

Blind 'em with a pretty card and they won't notice you having to grovel. That's a plan!
Now look every WOYWWer, I made a mistake with the date of week 104, the second anniversary. For some of us, this has made things better, for others, as it's always been week 104, the date was never important.
BUT
picture this: you've made a lovely gift to PiF to mark your amazing contribution to WOYWW over the last two years. Then the brainless host announces that the day of the PiF is during the week that you're away..on business, on holiday, on retreat, at Her Majesty's pleasure, who knows. The point is, she's messed it up and you've made a lovely 'thing' for nothing.
BUT
Not so, mes amis. If you wanna do the PiF but can't be around to post your link and join in on the day - consider sending your PiF to me to pass on to another absentee WOYWWer. I already have a couple...I will be able to put them in the post on the day...I'm not going away for ages yet.
BUT
actually, there is no other 'but -' I just like continuity.
You can email me from a link in the left side bar of this very blog if this sounds like a solution. You know I'm all about keeping it uncomplicated, but really, you can leave it to me to make it so. Please let me know if this solves a dilemma. Or not!!
Thanks again to Shaz in Oz and lately to Wipso for effectively policing my diary skills. I really do need to get out to work so the days don't blend so seamlessly!
Ludgershall Crop tomorrow, so must now dash to do superficial housework before more grovelling, this time on the floor in front of my paper shelves!

I must be very dumb today as I read this that YOU were going to be away on PIF day and ...... oh boy. Now I get it. Shame my brain is aching, rofl.
Lovely, pretty card Julia!

Groveling that is covered with a gorgeous card! Love the continuity. Week 104 is all I know (or care) about. You realize you are making more work for yourself than you need to make. But I understand how important this second year is. So, distract away, dear friend.

Calm down dear as they say...we will get there and it will improve our Math skills too! You're a star for going to so much trouble...Will be partying at 101,102, 103, 104, and 105 if need be...

Great card - a pardon is hereby granted to make you feel better not cos you are in debt!!!

Happy weekending...

Really pretty card Julia! I'm rubbish with dates anyway lol.
Thanks for popping over to look at my first WOYWW and all my new stash...just knew that you knew I was noseying 'round...couldn't live with the guilt any longer!!! Hahaha
Off to do a bit more to the PiF, took ages to dig it out from amongst the stash!
*hugs* Sal x

Lovely card...I'm sure your PIF'ers are appreciative of your efforts to sort the diary 'Ooops'.

Toni :o)

Angie said...

That really is a pretty card. DD had a brain wave over what I could make for the PIF ...so I might just play along.xx

Hi Julia, it's my first visit to your blog and you've had me in stitches this morning (cheering me up while I'm stuck at work!)
I have no idea what a PIF is (apart from property information forms I used to reluctantly complete when I was an overseas rep many years ago). I am now a follower and will definately be posting what's on my workdesk next week as it's never empty!
Have a fab weekend
Hayley xx
