So, yesterday, supposed to be the day I met Joanna and Penny and saw Tracey Emin's work for myself, in London, a grand day out, sun was shining.....only I didn't make it. Three hours sleep (couldn't get comfortable) and one swollen foot put a stop to my gallivanting. I could scream - literally.
I'd like to blame the "power walking" I did on Sunday...but I know it's a flare up. I've learnt to not plan outings.....friends phone up on the day and if I'm fit I go....less disappointment that way. :(
Penny has another outing in mind.....fingers crossed....I'm not even going to mention where to in the hope if that if I don't think about it, I'll get there. :)
Ah, yes, power walking...I didn't set out to do it..honest.
DS Nick accompanied me to Waitrose so that I could not only do my shopping but also the vital "going back to Uni food parcel shopping". Bear in mind he's a good foot taller than me (and I only have little legs) and you'll understand why I had to power walk to keep up. Then it was time for me to walk Max (after the football of course) or should I say it was time for Max to pull me round the estate in search of lovely smells and his doggy friends. Ouch!
Nick was supposed to go back to Bristol yesterday but is still here. Bonus, so is Vicky, his girlfriend. She was at the Wilderness Festival, somewhere in Oxfordshire, and it made sense for her to come here (she arrived at midnight Sunday). They'll travel back to Bristol together...either today or tomorrow...uncertain because A*****l are on TV tonight....and N. wants to see the match. I don't mind watching them either as it's preferable to most of the rubbish on TV at the moment (and it will keep me away from MTV, which will be a relief to the rest of the inmates).
Now for the crafting...
WeScrap are running a Deal or No Deal Challenge at the moment - great fun!
My week 1 suitcase had the challenge "use a tip or technique from the site (worth 3 points).
I chose to do "entwined flowers" as posted by Bev.
It's also for the Scrap Club August challenge, a scraplift:
I used Sassafrass Lass "Indie Girl" papers.
My week 2 challenge was to do "a photo collage using at least four photos" (worth 4 points). I'm also entering this for Sue's "Leave Your Legacy" challenge:
All materials Club Scrap "Scholastic".
And finally another "Joy Fold" card. Made last week but had to wait for it to be received before showing it:
Made using one of my favourite lines - Basic Grey "Ambrosia".
I forgot to mention that I've treated myself to some new perfume. CKOne "Shock" for her. I did like the "for him" version but went with "her" as it's very summery - smells like burnt strawberries (don't ask).
And it didn't cost me a penny. I used my Advantage card points at Boots (instead of saving them up for Christmas shopping). I know how to live the high life!
Things not to do when half asleep (all learnt this past week):
- grab a can of shaving gel instead of deodorant - messy.
- switch the coffee maker on but not at the socket - you can't understand why, 10 mins, later there's still no coffee.
- try to do Sudoku - esp. in The Times - you'll just mess it up.
I shall leave you with another gem from Pinterest (and I'm sure I saw a man on there the other day!):
