It just goes to show...

...that a little goes a long way!!
I am of course talking about a little incident that happened here about 30 minutes ago.
I reversed my car off the drive so that my husband could get his car out to go to work. As I sat at the opposite side of the street with my engine running, I noticed that after Richard had reversed out, he got out of his car and walked back onto the drive looking very puzzled. He then returned to his car thoroughly checking the bodywork before getting back in. Intrigued, I left my car running and got out to investigate further. As I walked onto the drive, I saw a totally flattened bottle of 'Anita's Tacky glue'.....it must've rolled out of my craft bag last night when I came home from my craft club and lodged itself behind my front tyre without me noticing. Obviously as I reversed over it, the pressure of the car's weight totally splattered it and the lid shot across the lawn (at approximately 75 mph!) followed by a hefty trail of white glue covering both the paving stones and the grass, stopping 2 feet short of my neighbours drive!!!  Wow what a spectacle! So I have just spent the last 15 minutes clearing the glue off the drive with hot soapy water and a stiff brush. Then came the difficult bit.....have you ever tried washing a lawn?!! Well I managed it with an all purpose cloth and another jug of hot, soapy water. I must admit that once it has dried, I am looking forward to seeing if it gives the grass that same clear, glossy finish that it does when you put it on a card, ha ha! 
I will keep you updated anyway so make sure you stay 'glued' to my blog..............!!! x

Oh dear Sheila you do make me laugh, just what I needed today.
You should have just thrown glitter over the top and waited for the sun to shine on it - what a sight that would have been Lol.
Love Irene
