Natalie was 26 yrs today..Where DID the time go?! We had a small BBQ in the back garden to celebrate as it was such a lovely day. We bought her a new suitcase and a camera for her Butlins Holiday later in the year. Thankfully I also bought her a hard case to put her camera in a she has already dropped it!!
As usual I left it to the last moment to decide to do something. A couple of hours before, thought I'd make a banner. I used my new spellbinder dies and a Tim Holtz alterations die ( for the rosettes ).
Daniel never seems to wear much in this weather around the house, just shorts. I have cropped this photo to save your poor eyes!
Derek took hundreds of photos of himself, so I thought I'd better include one of him trying to be cool. He also took loads of me but not one is flattering!
These fell into my basket and a snip at £13.30 ! Nip over to Craft Obsessions Where there is an Easter sale and NO P&P at the mo . They have Sizzix,Tim Holtz , SDpellbinders and Basic Grey all on special.
I was only looking at these particular dies the other day ..thinking that I needed them but I'd wait as they were over £15........Kismet! ;) ( sorry I think I bought that last set).
What a glorious day it has been here ..so warm and sunny. I spent yesterday outside painting stamped images for my cards and caught the sun. Today I popped to the garden centre to get a few seedlings for my pots..just gotta go out there later and pot them all up .......I LOVE Spring !
I have recently been raving about the tReds shoe store. I LOVE shoes and cheaper shoes are even better. One word of warning..DO be careful when ordering the correct size! Derek loves converse and has a couple of pairs already. He saw some recently in a high street store but I said No.. I'll look on tReds to see if I can get them cheaper..............RESULT..size 13 ( he has enormous feet!) £22 , so I ordered ( a pair of sketchers also fell into the basket in my "normal" size.) Derek has been waiting for the delivery ever since. And today they arrived...
........No Matter what angle you look at them from, they don't look any bigger!! OOOPs..I ordered a CHILDS size 13.
Even the box is too small. He is currently sulking.
These little beauties are mine. They fit perfectly, are comfortable and £10 cheaper than high street stores at £14.99.
My feet are far too cold to actually wear them today though.
I have been blog hopping and spending too much time sat here reading posts, blogs and browsing on-line stores. I would like to share a lovely blog with you by Hannah go check it out you won't be disappointed.
As you can see, the sun shone for her this morning. She had asked for a new laptop as her is quite old,slow and has 4 keys missing. I was happy coz it was either a laptop OR a party. I did put a whole load of soft wear on it that has made her very happy. She also had a cordless pink mouse and bag.
Thankfully I had installed it all before I wrapped it so all she had to do was switch on. She was up nice and early this morning :D I doubt I shall see her for three weeks now!!
I even got a very small smile ...BEFORE school!!
Her cake tonight. There was only Megs, Derek and I as the two older ones had gone out..still we got the biggest slices ;)
I have a cake sale at school tomorrow in aid of the climate run. I look after all the "Eco" stuff at school and some of our pupils are running on Thursday. I was a bit worried that I would also have to run ..but thankfully, I just have to bake cakes tonight. I had better get on with it then.
In the words of some of my fav year 11's......Laerrrs!
