I have a very, very busy day ahead. Boys are here, on an unexpected sleepover. Mum night shift. Dad should have been at home but called away and will not be back till later today........Granny & Grandpa to the rescue once again. Will get them and Grandpa up soon, John will oversee the breakfast then take them to school. They are very good at getting themselves ready now they are older. I am sure they will keep Grandpa right rather than the other way round!!!!!
I have been getting myself organised, I am off up to The Papeterie in Aberdeen. Hazel and I were there when Sue Wilson was doing Workshops with Julia Watts in July. They were selling Raffle Tickets which Hazel and I bought when they were going round with them. We thought they were all for Sue & Julia` cards. The Papeterie are having a big Crafty Retreat this weekend from Friday morning 9.30 through till Sunday afternoon. I won a place for the Friday Workshops. Have not a clue what I will be doing/making however I am sure I will enjoy it all. Only down side is I have to be away approx 7.45/8.00 very latest, its approx a 180 mile round trip. The journey from here to Aberdeen is not too bad once I get on the dual carriageway. When I get to Aberdeen its the journey though to The Papeterie that`s the big problem, traffic is nose to tail right to the junction the Papeterie sits on. I have always had company when I have done this trip before, this time I am on my own!!! Hazel is working, Elaine on holiday another friend that`s quite crafty could not believe that anyone would spend £75 on a day Crafting that`s the cost for the Friday Workshops.
What about a "bag" for an "Oldie for Friday.
I have not made any of these since before last Christmas, Oh! My! Word! that`s almost a year ago......!!!
Tell you what it feels rather like Winter out there this morning. Very cold and a funny looking sky, had it been later in the year I would have said it looked like it could "snow"
