So, what's been happening this week.
Well, as you probably know there was a bit of slime making going on in the kitchen. I think Thomas got cold feet about taking it in though in case he was caught with the contraband so after all that mess it stayed wrapped on the windowsill for 3 days until I binned it. At least he had fun making it.
I got another Works voucher for my birthday which I love receiving and bought a new book. It's full of handy little tips which I expect we all know but it's a good book to pick up and flick through.
A surprise parcel arrived in the post - they really are the nicest ones aren't they. This was sent by the lovely Liz at lovethosecupcakes. She probably won't remember but not long after the HA I posted something about it always being on my mind and she wrote a comment that helped me deal with it more positively. You really should visit her blog if you haven't done. She posts lovely photos and goes off on the most exciting adventures for her holidays. I feel truly blessed that I've made so many lovely friends in bloggy world.
It was Mark's birthday yesterday. He spent the day in Manchester drinking real ale under the guise of attending a watch meeting. The meetings often happen around his birthday so it was an added bonus it was on the actual date. We're not precious about things like that. Sometimes we make plans and celebrate, sometimes birthdays just come and go quietly - unlike Mark who made a noisy entrance last night staggeringly drunk!
On Friday just after school pick up there was a break in the wet weather and the sun popped out, so I quickly took myself out in the garden for an hour to do some more crochet.
The granny square blanket is growing nicely.
The jigsaw has been finished, photographed, added to my jigsaw page, broken up and put back in the box. It will go in the charity pile now. Once I've done something I rarely go back and do it again. I generally don't re-read books, re-do jigsaws or re-watch films, although I did put Braveheart on yesterday but I was crocheting and getting up and down pottering around while it was on.
Matthew and Sophie popped round earlier on. They'd taken Sienna to a cake smash photo shoot. I'd never heard of them but apparently they're the in thing at the moment. Basically you put a big cake in front of baby and let them do their thing while photos are taken. It's usually done to celebrate their 1st birthday. Cute but messy and it seems like a waste of a good cake to me! This is a photo off the internet to give you an idea.
Parklife is on at Heaton Park this weekend and we can hear the music even with the doors shut. Amy said they did a roaring trade in wellies yesterday and had sold out by lunchtime. It's all good fun if that's your thing.
Hope you've had a lovely weekend.
