Not sure where thedays have gone ...my desk has only got worse since last week, as I just continued to pile up bits as I created my last 3 LO's ...which as you can see have not even been filed yet.I also dont put away the boxes and bags that I drag from the shelves either ....until I trip over them and cause myself pain ...and then I kick them ... causing more lol
The only reason the shelves are tidy is that DD and VIcki cannot stand my mess and MAKE me tidy every so often. Today is maybe one of those days as DD announced that she would like to be able to find a few square inches of space to craft on when she returned home from work .... she should be so lucky lol
Having said that I don't know where the days have gone ... I REALLY don't know where the years have gone ....today is my 63rd birthday. As I sit tapping at the keys here I really do not feel any where near that age but I know that the moment I get up I will feel every one of them ...if not more.
DD and Vicki gave me some cash to have a little stash buy ...not sure what yet ....could be bits for my metal embossing ....or some of the new Distress inks ....or ...... stamps or ??????...... why is it so hard to choose when the money is in your hand and so easy when you have none. They also gave me a mini Birthday cake and a fluffy Meerkat. I wonder if Mr Postie will bring me anything else?????
I was quite chuffed that Emma loved my LO 'Monsters Inc' and that she wants me to replicate it ...framed ...for the boys bedroom and create something similar for another frame. Better get my thinking cap on.
Last week I went into Edinburgh to meet up for a meal with Steve Emma and the boys ... we were going to have a walk too but it was bitterly cold so we just had the meal at a slow pace. It was a very child friendly place ...they even gave the boys a colouring book and crayons ... and we didn't feel in the way, unlike in other eating places. They didn't even seem to mind that we spent nearly 3 hours there .... during their busy time.
Ben and Jake have a meal out with Nana B
This was the first time they had had a chip as Emma and Steve dont want them to crave 'junk food' or have too much salt and fat. Top row 2nd in from the left is Jake trying a slice of Red onion lol
With a bit of luck, next week there maybe a tidy ...ish, table with things to look at
I'm off now and will catch up with every ones blogs later .... after I have cleared a space for DD.
Take Care xx
