WOYWW #492- or the Rescued by Firemen edition!
Monday night we went to the 02 Academy in Birmingham for a concert. All went well till the end, when we are about to leave. Doug tells me to wait for the lift- it's 3 flights of stairs- and he'll meet me downstairs. It's only a small lift, for disabled use, manned by one of the stewards. Takes them, and 4 people at a time. So, in we get, lift moves a foot, and stops. Totally. Won't go up, won't go down. By now Doug had come back upstairs, and from what he told me after, they couldn't find the outer door key- no-one knew who had it! They had to call the fire brigade to get us out. It also seems it was a bit of a shambles as they had 3 or 4 people in motorised wheelchairs to get out, with no lift. There is a door on the opposite side of the venue which is at street level- it's on a hill- but that involved putting ramps in place to get them up steps. If it had been an emergency evacuation, without doubt there would have been casualties, it was a total farce.Doug had to show the stewards how to put the ramps together effectively, and help get people out. He's given them hell in an email today- being a Health & Safety officer & Fire Warden at work, he knows what he's talking about.
So, thats this weeks drama, lol. Onto the desk, and not a lot happening yet, to be honest. Doug's got a weeks holiday this week, so we've been doing stuff around the house & garden.
A couple of purchases, some word dies, and a balloon stencil. From Aliexpress.
Anyone wanting to have a look there, it looks like they have a sale on on the 11th November, only 20p or 30p off stuff, but when they're less than £2 anyway, it's still a bargain.
The stencil is about 6" square, for scale.
Pulled these over onto my desk to finish during the week, and there are more of the strip type cards in the post below that I did over the weekend.
Also made another 3 of the snowflake wreath cards, to use up the remaining snowflakes.
And I think I'm done. Linking over at Julias place, The Stamping Ground, for our regular desk fest, and I'll be round to visit in a while.
Indeed we are! What an amazing achievement, and all due to our much loved hostess with mostest, Julia, over at The Stamping Ground , home ...
