Had another fab weekend. Had loads of scrapping time yesterday cos Tony went off to footy (I just love footy - means I get loads of time to myself) LOL!
Went out for a wander this morning and ended up at a car boot sale, bought some Pokermon cards, a huge pile for £1.50 - they are ideal for ATC's, a tacky gold necklace that Tony has now taken apart and there are some nice little link thingys that will be useful, some used stamps from all around the world, quite a pile of them for 60p, again useful for ATC's and a really natty storage jar set, 12 glass jars with wooden lids on a 2 tier wooden holder, ideal for storing stash and it only cost £1 - bargain!!
My job this afternoon is to paint the lids and holder and generally spruce them up a bit - I'll take pics when I've finished.
We went onto a vineyard, it's not far from us and we'd been meaning to visit for ages. It was actually really nice there. We had a BLT roll for lunch and there was masses in it not just a thick layer along the front where you can see it that leaves you with just mouthfuls of bread at the back.
We bought a bottle of wine too and we're going to have some with our dinner later, "oh how cultured darlings". Here's a piccie of it - obviously still full at the moment!! - Edited to say, I did have a piccie on here but wanted to change the size and now I can't get it back - oh well! I'll take a piccie of the empty tomorrow!
Got a busy week this week, Mr BT is coming on Tuesday to swap our line from ISDN back to an ordinary one and leaving me with a broadband package to install and get up and running - eek!! I'm really not that much of a computer wizard and something is just bound to go wrong.
I want to try and get work as up to date as possible so I can get a few days off for the mini cyber crop. I know Tony is off to footy on the Saturday so that's 1 free day at least but I haven't really had a holiday this year so I could do with some time off.
I seem to be finding more and more stuff for me to do, I've signed up for a newbie ATC swap and my team mate Nina is on the same swap. Really looking forward to doing some ATC's, I've done a few but I've just put them in a file here and get them out from time to time to have a peek. We only need to do 5 so that's not so bad.
Also, I'm going to have a go at a banner for this blog at some point, I've printed off the instructions that Natalie directed me to so I'll see how I get on, "watch this space". Edited to say, well I've done a really quick one at the top, I'm not going to keep that one but I was impatient to see if it would work!!!
Anyway, first coat of paint is dry, I'm off to do another.
