Penicillin, Photobox and papercrafting

I have always been a Snapfish girl until a couple of months ago when Leigh commented on how quickly her photos came via Photobox. Yesterday at 3.30pm I placed an oder for 82 photos of varying size right up to 12" x 8" and they arrived in today's post!! I have to say that so far in my experiences this is typical of the service provided and I can highly recommend them. They don't seem to have quite so many offers and voucher codes as snapfish but for pure reliability and speed they still win hands down. I like to get ideas for LOs and be able to actually scrap them 24 hours later! You do get 40 free prints for signing up, and even better- if you do it through then you get 4% back. Bargain!

I took my poorly finger to the Dr yesterday. She said "I don't need to tell you that you have an infection!" and then "That looks very tender" as she prodded and poked it ("Yes, it is. Very tender!" *biting lip in pain*). So now I have penicillin to take and it doesn't feel quite as close to exploding as it did yesterday.

Tonight I'm looking forward to the start of 'X-factor'. I'm probably different from most of the X-factor watching population, in that I prefer the live finals to the ear hurting audition stages but I will still be having it on in the background whilst I start to scrap my holiday photos tonight. You can see what I do with the photo at the top of this post later this week on the Indigo Mills Blog :)

Ow. Poor you...isn't that what we used to call a witlow? Aggers, either way. You are good not to have been tempted to do some home surgery. Sorry if that makes you squirm!!
LOVe the beach hut photo.

My Aunt (who's a nurse ;) ) called it a witlow too. Never heard of it! I tried magnesium sulphate, but I'm certainly not brave enough for home surgery.

I don't think so Julie. No evidence of it anyway. I never had a big order before but the box is lovely! x

Great photo too - look forward to seeing your LO.
