After the disappointment of not getting to crop last Saturday the rest of the week has been OK on the whole. I still "lost" Wednesday as far as anything energetic was concerned but managed some gentle crafting.
This week I'm thankful for my son - I managed a long chat with him and he's coming home - sometime soon! I'm looking forward to that as we haven't seen him since Easter. He's all grown up and fairly sensible so we've obviously done s'thing right in the raising of him.
Thanks to my "crafty" friends who visit my blog and leave encouraging comments, especially those who make me laugh (in a good way)...Carole and Maria (btw the paperback dried out in the airing cupboard and I managed to read it ..curled pages and all!)
I'm thankful for the WeScrap website whose fellow members encourage and inspire me even when I'm not feeling particularly creative.
I must mention the World Cup - I know a lot of you will be fed up with football but for those of us who sometimes watch daytime TV (I have to watch as I iron to relieve the boredom.lol) it has made a pleasant change to the usual programmes about antiques/houses/cooking. Can't forgive the BBC for not getting Leonardo as a pundit - sorry guys but Shearer et al can't compete!
A Maze of Memories gets a mention too - their Stashbusters Day tomorrow will give me at least 6 hours crafting uninterrupted by requests for coffee, food or walkies.
Happiness too from the organisers of the very first "Thame Art and Literature Festival". I've managed to get tickets for "Tea with the Romantics" on Saturday 26th. I'll get to meet and hear five authors , including two of my favourites, Katie Fford and Judy Astley - if you've never read them.. it's superior chick-lit with lots of humour (some of it laugh out loud).Pat will be with me for this..a glass of bubbly and afternoon tea - bliss!
That's about it from my world this week - just going to see if Sebia are still leading against Germany...
