Rocking My World Friday
It's Friday again - but only just! As I couldn't sleep I thought I'd make an early start on my gratefuls for the week....
First this week is Virginia (the originator of Rocking Your World Friday) for recommending "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" books by J.R. Ward. Amazon supplied them (not on Kindle alas) and I am loving them. Twilight for grown-ups! I've finished book 1 and am half way through book 2. They will be going up to Scotland next if Gill wants to read them - one by one though as there are 8 of them!
Next is my DS and his Christmas presents to me. I spent a lovely Weds. evening playing with tags, listening to Take That and MoS Electronic 80's - both CDs were from him even though he finds my taste in music appalling - thanks Nick!
Mary Green deserves a mention too for the Collage Course I'm doing - thoroughly enjoying it and I'm able to use some of the old books I rescued from Dad's house (along with old sheet music).
This was for the second class which was all about faces. I used pages from The Strand Musical Magazine Feb 2nd 1895. I'd love to know which member of Dad's family was musical - it wasn't him. The course has also given me the excuse of searching for old books on ebay - cheap ones though and the tattier the better so I don't feel bad about cutting them up. Must visit some charity shops too - as recommended by Joanna (aka Fiddlesnips).
As usual I'm grateful for my OH who puts up with my crafting (with only the occasional moan about the mess). I missed him on Weds. as he stayed overnight in Bolton. The hotel was wasted on him - it's next to the Reebok and the Bolton players were there before the game against Wigan - that's much more my scene than his! Plus I'd quite like a night away in a hotel - although I'd then miss Max.
This week's recipe to try is a Heston Blumenthal one -Pea and Ham soup - I'll let you know what it's like next week along with what we did at the second meeting of Scrap Club at A Maze of Memories - so looking forward to that on Saturday.
Hope you've all had good weeks.
