Have you got his passport? TG and JM card too

Howdy Bloggettes!

So do you have the OM's passport? Someone does and it for sure ain't him! So what's this little saga I can hear you say? I can can't I? I mean I'm not talking to myself am I? ;))

I'll explain the saga - in a way its quite funny.... You do need a well developed sense of humour to appreciate the funny side though!

So the OM applies for a new passport, after a while when its not arrived I phoned the Passport Office... first part of the saga. The number I Googled isn't for the actual passport office. Its £1.50 a minute, which it only tells me when I've phoned the second number!

Eventually I get through...

Me - My husbands not received his passport

Them - Oh but it was delivered in May

Me - Not here it wasn't

Them - Oh I'll get back to you

So the next day she phones back. Now I should have realised when she starts the conversation with a very sheepish laugh...

Them - can you describe your house please?

Me - Why? I thought they photographed the door?

Them - ~more sheepish laughter~ well I'll get back to that in a minute.

I then describe our house....

Me - So what about the photo then?

Them - Er what's your roof like please?

Me - Roof??? why?

Them - the roof?

Me - Well its got red tiles on it.... The photo?

Them - ~another little giggle~ Well the courier seems to have taken a photo of your roof. But its got a distinctive spiral on it. So its proof they delivered it to the right address.

Me - The roof? He took a photo of the roof???

Them - Its distinctive

Me - 95% of the houses here have those on actually.

Them - Ahhhh.... I'll start an investigation then...

To cut a long story short, and this is the abridged version, she emailed me the photo.....

Fantastic isn't it?

So the question is 'Who lives in a house like this? Over to you' Oh and do you have the OM's passport?

See what I mean about having to laugh? Fortunately I can at the moment as our holiday is still 3 months away!

Onto lighter things another challenge has just started at Totally Gorjuss This week the theme is 'Sugar and Spice' I immediately thought of this sweet little Tilda with her frog!

I then added another Tilda frog at the front of the card too - looks like he's going to hop off he card! I'm not sure if the sentiment's a bit big... its perfect for her and her froggy though. Over at Just Magnolia their challenge is in the garden. Now you frogs in gardens right? Oh and flowers too. So I've entered it for that too.

Oh the arty shot!

Now what I've used or recipe even ;))

Papers - Pink Petticoat gingham download Magnolia frog paper
Spellbinder heart nesties
Wild Orchid flowers
Martha Stewart punches - heart border and fern frond
Lace from stash
Tilda coloured with Copics
Frog - YG00 YG03 YG23 YG09
Dress - V000 RV00 V12
Hair - Y11 E50 Y26 YR31

Epic huh? I think the Passport story is classic - only in England! Have you had such a drama with them? I really really hope not!

Your card is gorgeous. The image is great and lovely colored. Every detail is wonderful.

I'm thnking if the courier 'needed' proof about delivering, he'd have just got a signature off someone. left a note, ...the roof photo suggests that someone knew the delivery was going to be questioned. And yeah, distinctive my ar**! I haven't got it I'm afraid. On the plus side, I love the card!

Oh Net, don't you just want to shake them?! A photo of your roof, whatever next. Stunning card hun, and that frog is just brilliant. Hugs, Sxx

Karen said...

LMAO at this Net! It does appeal to my sick sense of humour hahaha!!! But I am sorry that the pasport has gone awol...just hope its not too much of a problem for you to get hold of it. Keep us posted.

LOVE that card and the frog is perfect on it XXX

Kaz said...

What a nightmare Net - let's hope you get it sorted in time.
Let me know if her frog turns into a prince - I'm fed up of kissing them I'm afraid! x

Hazel said...

The sentiment isn't too big - can never say 'I love you' too big. What a pathetic photo of a roof - could be anyone's! Hope it gets sorted soon x

Sharon said...

LOL, I had a classic conversation on the phone recently with HM Customs & Revenue - talk about jobsworth!! Lovely card and the frog looks fab.

Mina said...
