Hello Blog Friends, my goodness can you believe it, the weekend again!!!! Welcome to my newest follower Bea, thank you for joining me on my Crafty journey.
Do not know if any of you do this:- when I click on a new Blog, I go off on a great journey. I find things to "click" on, I click here and find a great idea, I click there and see a fantastic project. Then sit back and wonder how the heck did I ever manage to land where I eventually end up!! !!!! Mind you it is far better than sitting watching the rubbish on that other screen..................!!!!
My friend Elaine did not manage to come last night. Her daughter phoned to say mum slipped on the ice in the morning and was still not feeling good. They had packed her off to bed. Elaine Text me this morning to ask if she could come along tonight. I text back and told her to come to the Front door. as round the back although all salted and sanded could be icy. We craft and chat in the kitchen or should I say we "Chat" and sometimes craft in the kitchen, so she just comes round the back. She told me she would come prepared and bring her "Crash Helmet " I told her better make it full Body Armour. It is only a few weeks since Elaine broke her nose running into my Patio Doors...................!!!
In the spring of 2010 I had what I thought was a brilliant idea. I decided to have quite a bit of our rather large back garden done in Paving Slabs. We had it all in chips to keep the gardening down while we spent from May till November in Turkey. When we were at home we noticed that the boys liked to ride their bikes along the paths that were there. We had sold the house in Turkey and were home permanently, the boys were spending lots of time at our house. We had the Paving slabs laid, the boys had a ball on their bikes, motorized Tractor and Car, plenty room for them to whizz about. Then winter came.......................................Oh! Oh! then we realized that it had not been such a great idea after all. We just did not think about winter, when it snows the slabs get very slippy. We salt and sand them to get to the Coal, Log Store, Rubbish Bins and the back door of the Garage.
So folks if you have had thoughts about Paving or these fancy Paviors really think about it. They look great BUT!!!!
