I know I've been a bit of a bad blogger lately....been neglecting you all....but this old crafting malarkey is inclined to take over my life and the decorating of the new cubbyhole certainly hasn't helped....why am I constantly chasing my tail and wishing for more hours in the day.....well yesterday I took off to have some me time and to meet up with my lovely bloggy budCass and her family....we had a fabulous time... a little spend in my local crafty shop....but the best bit a good old blether with Cass and the owner...the lovely Jacqui....and it makes you realise what is really important in life and that is having good friends and making time to have fun with them. It was so lovely to meet up with Cass again and how nice that she took time from her holiday to come and meet me.....and am I embarrassed......she presented me with this beautiful card and this absolutely massive box of chocs.....oh dear...the waistline is going to go in every direction by the time I munch my way through all these delicious yummies.
and of course....there is no show without Punch.....some delicious treats for "The Budster"......and "will Buddy know what is in the bag" asked Louis......Cass's son.....he sure did.....he was glued to my leg the minute I walked in the door......and guess what....Mrs Dopey Mare did it again.....the little gift I had for Cass was left sitting on the kitchen table.....oh the shame.....big big thank you my lovely friend and look forward to meeting up again in October at the SECC.
I know I told you that the painting in the new cubbyhole was all done and dusted.....well "Mrs Can't Leave Well Alone" here decided to have a feature wall in a rather striking colour....yes REDCURRANT GLORY to be precise...I have painted this ruddy wall twice and would you believe it still looks a bit streaky....they look even worse in the pic than they do in real life.....so just off to get started on Coat No 3 and believe me I am now losing the will to live....who had the bright idea of moving the cubbyhole...is it too late to change my mind and stay exactly where I am.
Catch up with you all tomorrow (that is if the men in white coats haven't carted me off in a straitjacket)....for another fabulous challenge on Penny Black Saturday AND.... it's our big day at Funky Hand..the launch of our brand new challenge blog....GET FUNKY....so pop over at 9.00am and join in the fun.
