This a much happier post as I've come to terms with my MIL's death and have tried to stop thinking about the anniversary coming up (one of them at least...I'm still dropping "pearl" hints about the other one...sadly, I think the hints are falling on deaf ears).
Sunday afternoon was wonderful. It was ever so quiet and I was able to spread all my stuff out...I'm not the tidiest of scrappers. It was also lovely to see my friend Jan and have a chat and a laugh.
I managed to finish one double LO, a single LO and almost complete a second double. All were for the monthly challenges on WeScrap. I can show you two of them - the other still needs a title adding.
This was for a "recipe" challenge and I managed to use up all my primary school photos.
A companion piece "Growing Old...Disgracefully" is to follow.
This one was for a "Keep It Simple" challenge. Photos of my uncle during WW2 - journalling to be added by either my aunt or my cousin.
So what else has been happening here?
Some excellent sports results in both cricket and football (3 - 0 and, with my immaculate timing, I completely missed the first goal).
A prediction that West Brom will win this weekend - I've put Stoke to win in the Sky Sports competition that I take part in. After only two weeks I'm joint 6th with -3 points....b****y Arsenal have let me down both weeks. Actually, bearing in mind what happened during the World Cup, I jinxed them.
Kitchen incidents of a harmful nature - 1.
Accidental stabbing of hand with fork (preparing jacket potatoes). No blood spilt.
Parcels to get excited about - 3.
All arrived at once yesterday...my Man Utd membership pack and some clothes from the sales @M&S online.
What does it mean when the thing that excites you about your new pj's is not the lovely colour (red), nor the lovely price (£5) but the fact that they have a gorgeous, broad cream bow and ribbon round them?
Why do egg yolks always break when you need them whole (frying and poaching) but stubbornly remain intact when scrambling or making omelette?
Dare I take my Kindle into the bath with me? I'm a bit wary after the paperback incident last year (answer to question posed then - 3 days).
If Oprah says something is it true?
I ask because Carmen (who has disappeared again!) did the quiz I linked into last Friday's post and Oprah said she's "an Artist".
She also said that I'm "intellectual and nurturing....."
We both think that ,if Oprah says it, it must be true. :)
Today I really, really must tackle the "i" word. I've run out of excuses and displacement activities. Although..... I do need to make a sympathy card....mmm.......nah, that won't take all afternoon....
