Where did that week go?
If all had gone to plan I would have been writing this tonight after a day shopping in Bristol and a meal out with DS and his girlfriend - alas the best laid plans etc... David's meeting was cancelled and rearranged for next Thursday. Shouldn't be a problem? Hah! My friend Audrey, who looks after Max when we're out all day, will be in Tenerife (hopefully soaking up some sun with Val, another friend) and Pat who may be able to do it is currently in Lanzarote.
But enough of the whining.. this is a positive look back on the week. My gratefuls this week are varied.
Still in love with my Kindle,still reading trashy novels (all I've felt like to be honest) although I have just re-read "The 39 Steps". Interesting - it suddenly hit me how times and attitudes have changed. I must have read this book 5 or 6 times now and I'd never really noticed before. It wouldn't be published today but it's still a damn good adventure story. On film my favourite is the Robert Donat version followed by Robert Powell(can't stand the Kenneth More version).
Not a lot on TV this week so I've been very grateful for my crafting space (aka the dining room).
The fruits of my labours have been shown in previous posts but I'll share a Christmas LO that hasn't been seen at the end of this post.
Definitely grateful to Royal Mail for having the sense (finally!) to do something about the parcel backlog. Couldn't believe it when a post van turned up on SUNDAY with four of my parcels - Yay! Another one appeared on Tuesday so now I'm just waiting for bits and pieces from USA.
Grateful to my hairdresser who sorted me out yesterday - my hair has shape again and I had a wonderful head massage too. Bliss!
Especially grateful to my cyber buddies Maria and Joanna. Maria sent me a beautiful Christmas ATC - now safely stored in my folder.
Joanna offered me positive comments and some words of wisdom and introduced me to the Green Paper Collage Club. I've joined up for the year and am excited about starting something new. Hugs to both of you!
As always I'm grateful to David and Max for their company and for making me laugh.
This LO "Anatomy of a Cake" was done for fun (and my Christmas album) using Basic Grey "Wassail" papers,alpha and embellies. Sugar and Spice was in my stash. The recipe is tucked in behind the photos.
I hope all you fellow Rockettes and browsers have had a good week too.
