Whinging Wednesday!

I've got nothing major to whinge about but that doesn't seem to have stopped me today.  I walked to the ATM at the bank before work this morning to pay some money in, but it didn't take deposits!  OK I should be happy as I'd got my exercise in for the day but it didn't stop me grumbling to myself.
Follow that by going to give blood after work - why do they have an appointment system when you still have to wait for 45 minutes!  Another gggrrrr but again the happy bit is I did donate blood.
How can I not be happy when I got a little inky this evening.
I fell in love with this little bird cage from PaperArtsy at the NEC but this is the first time it's been used and I wasn't disappointed.  I also got out my distress embossing powder that hasn't been out of the cupboard for several years but it worked really well on this project.
Thank you to the following challenge blogs for inspiring me to get inky:
Quixotic Challenges - how distressing
The Secret Crafter - #80, distressing
The ABC Challenge - T is for Thank You   

Onward and upward to a non-whinging day tomorrow!
