Good morning! Weekend is finally here - woop woop!!!!!
Well, yesterday, I managed to get the day off work. DH however did not, so I decided to call my bestest friend Sue to see if she could come out to play (i.e. go somewhere nice to browse around delightful shops!). Although she had a pile of things to do, including interesting stuff like washing, tidying etc, she very nicely agreed. So, giggling like the pair of naughty college students we once were, we hopped into her car and whizzed along to a local town, Ashby. We had been meaning to go for ages.
And what a lovely little market town it is - just look as these shop window displays:
Loved these primulas in the cheery bags so much I got one for my darling Mum:
And we both thought this was gorgeous:
Thanks for coming along for the ride - posting today has been somewhat lengthy (blogger playing up a bit) perhaps this little chap had something to do with it
And finally, now on to the award I was given this week by the lovely Clara - thank you so much Clara, it means a lot to me. Those of you who are my regular readers will know that I am relatively new to blogging. Im always really pleased and humbled to see that I now have followers and regular comments on my posts.
So now I have to give 7 facts about me (!!)
1 - I am totally obsessed by hearts!!
2 - I love watching birds from my window, but have to keep a close eye on my cats!
3 - I have been crocheting on and off for 40 years (I was a very young girl when I learned this craft ;) )
4 - I am a very, very bad influence on my friend Sue from crafts@home ;)
5 - Sue from crafts@home is a very bad influence on me!!
6 - I would love a little summer house/cabin in my garden so that I can escape in there to do my crafts (DH are you listening my dear?!)
7 - My day job is teaching young people aged 16-19 who are very disengaged and challenging - and yes, I have taught some of the lads crochet - they loved it!! And no, they didnt beat me up when I suggested it!!
So now it is time to pass on the award. I would like to nominate the following:
Thanks to you all for giving me so much pleasure reading your blogs!
Have a wonderful day, whatever it is you get up to! Helenxx
