Soooo busy

I've had a really busy couple of days at work. I had to design an Assessment Centre for this coming Monday and it really has been a lot of work. I was due to be off on holiday tomorrow but I'll have to go in for a couple of hours at least to finish some stuff off. The good thing is that my boss is delighted with everything I've done so at least my hard work has been appreciated.

Till later.

Beautiful Sunday

The washing was done and hung out early this morning and then I took Molly for a walk. It was a very pleasant walk along the towpath at the side of the River Leven and we took our time to enjoy the sunshine and the fresh air. This afternoon we headed up to Pets at Home for some supplies for Molly, into X-scape for a new school jacket for Laura and then we stopped off at Tony Roma's for dinner. On the way out I had a 20 minute massage at Massage and Glow and it was fab. My back and shoulders now feel really good - who was it who said "old age doesn't come alone" lol.

I also managed to sneak in some crafting time and finished the final four pages of my calendar and several Christmas cards - there is no stopping me now.

It is the PTI release night tonight and Lesley and I are getting all excited about their new stuff. The banner dies look particularly fab and I hope that we get the order placed before they run out.

Till tomorrow.

A Fab Day Cropping

We had a really nice day today and I even managed to make a few cards (wonders will never cease lol). I used my new Lilli of the Valley stamps and I was quite pleased with the results.

The shop was quite busy too, so the day passed really quickly for me. Tonight I've been trying to catch up on my housework and have been washing and hoovering like a mad woman lol.

Jim and I also chose a new carper for our hall, stairs and landing so that should be here within the next 2 weeks YIPPEE!

Catch ya later.

Guess who ..................

slept in for work today - yes meeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Yesterday I re-set my phone alarm for 10.55am so that I would remember the 2 minutes silence and I forgot to put it back to 6am. I'm due in work at 8am and Jim's alarm went off at 7.30am you should have seen the mad scramble to get showered and dressed and off to work. I eventually got there at 8.30am - groan. Luckily my boss wasn't around so it was okay.

One of the girls in work recently ran the New York Marathon and she was due back in work today. I made her a card to celebrate her achievement and to record her time of 3 hours 30 minutes and 18 seconds. Well done Elaine you are a star and you definitely put me to shame - I can't even run for the bus LOL.

I ordered some stash from Stampin Up recently and it arrived yesterday, I've already had a little play with my new 1 3/4" punch and some other bits and pieces. Tomorrow, I'm cropping with some friends and I'm really looking forward to it. I haven't done much scrapping recently as I've had a lot going on. Hopefully I'll get some stuff done tomorrow.

Till then.

Ace of Cakes

I've had a busy week at work this week and thought I would put my feet up tonight and watch one of my fave programmes Ace of Cakes. I love that show and never get tired of seeing the fantastic cakes they make. Am I jealous - you bet lol. They are all so talented. Chef Duff has now brought out his own line of goodies to help us wannabees to make cakes as good as his. This photo was taken at Michaels.
My poor hubby has not been very well this week and has been allowing himself to get very stressed out. He needs to relax and focus on getting better but this has been difficult for him recently due to the actions of some really stupid people. I hope that he can chill a bit over the weekend and perhaps we can have some family time too.
Till tomorrow.

Spot the Mistake

Yesterday I was in such a hurry to post my new stamp image that I posted the wrong one DOH! I've changed the images round and posted my fairy image on yesterday's post and the cute little teddy with the flowers today.

My friend Shona was delighted with the graduation card. Because the girl had achieved an HND in Beauty Therapy I used my Oh So Pretty Bella by Stamping Bella and some of my vintage Autumn Leaves papers.
I've been busy cooking for the freezer tonight so now have a large pot of bolognaise sauce and a roast beef joint cooling in the kitchen - smells good.
Catch ya later.

A Bit Tired Tonight

I've had a busy day interviewing and was looking forward to making dinner then putting my feet up. Unfortunately, I was asked to make a graduation card this afternoon - for tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!

I've posted another one of my Lili of the Valley stamps that I bought at the SECC. I can see me getting a lot of use out of this. I'm not really a fairy person and there are some really gross looking fairy images around at the moment but this one was soooooooo cute I just had to have it.

Till later.
