Heart and Taxes

My internet is playing up terribly (stabs Tesltra repeatedly!), so staying connected long enough to upload these was a challenge in itself.

I have a feeling these two were meant to be easy, lol but I had NO idea what to do for either of them, especially taxes (short of taking a photo of the outside of my accountant's building). Then I remembered that a couple of years ago my very old and much loved PC died somewhere in early July, just in time for hubby's tax return to come in-- being the wonderful sweet man that he is, he told me to go out and buy myself a new one with the money. So here is our tax return from two years ago...

As for heart, I was a teeny bit stumped there too... Valentine's Day is not something that was celebrated over here until recently when the shops decided to start promoting it so they could get the teddy bear, flower, chocolates etc sales that their counterparts in the USA get... personally I find it rather tacky to snaffle other people's holidays in the interest of profit, and avoid it at all costs, so there was obviously no Valentine related paraphernalia to be found in my house, but I was dusting the dressing table the other day and realised that sitting on it was a lovely dressing table set my Mother in law gave me years ago for Christmas, and inside the heart-shaped crystal jewellery box was a locket that my Nana gave me many, many years ago when I was a little girl. I was going to post the locket, but as slaymesoftly beat me to it, I took a photo of the dressing table set instead.


Can't see the heart pic? Ah, there it is. I wonder why LJ does that sometimes? Not show the picture until after you've commented and the page has reloaded with your comment? Ah well - lovely!

Thanks. I don't really use it very much because I'm not much of a jewellery wearer, but it is pretty.
Very nice use of your refund, I must say. And a dressing table set would never surive in my house. Between the cats and my own penchant for covering every flat surface with clutter, well, let's just say that I'm glad you own it and I get to admire it from a safe distance, LOL!
My previous computer was about ten years old and had been held together for years with love and luck... the new computer is so nice (and fast).

LOL Believe me, the cat has tried! She is banned from my bedroom because she is a wrecker.
What an excellent use of the tax rebate! I do like the wallpaper you have on it.

The dressing table set is really pretty, too.
I *heart* my computer, although I haven't been able to use it very much lately... my son's computer died so he is always on mine, so I'm on the laptop...which is a perfectly good little computer, but all my programs (Photoshop etc) are on the PC.

The wallpaper is artwork from an online game I play (Guild Wars)...Nicholas the Traveller and his Yak Professor Yakkington.
It's amazing what stares us in the face everyday that we don't even notice... after posting this I realised I also have a lovely little heart shaped crystal dish that only ever comes out of the cupboard at Christmas time.
