Had a very long day yesterday - all the way down to Perth for the Funeral then back home again. Addy was a star for driving me all that way, bless him!
It was a nice service, and Auntie Daisy had a good turn-out. It was lovely to see My Auntie Hazel, and my Gran and a few other faces that I've not seen for a long time. Always a shame that it is under sad circumstances though.
Had a better sleep last night, still feel a bit yeeuucchh but it is time to pick myself up and move on again. And just look what my sister in law sent to cheer me up - look at Chiem - isn't he just a cherub! I am hoping to get a cuddle with that little bundle of love when I am in Holland next week :)
No nursery today or tomorrow so no doubt I will have a house full....or should that be trampoline full of the local kids :) Aaaah I love it really....and it wears them out!
Got a new book in the post yesterday all with ideas for mini books.....so I plan to sit down later and get creative.....it's long overdue!!!
Been a strange few days....lots of mixed emotions!
We spent a lovely day down in Peebles on Friday - was lovely to visit some old friends - especially Val at the Sunflower Restaurant - if antone is ever in Peebles I highly recommend her place! Hmmm - can't seem to add a link but the site is http://www.thesunflower.net/
Came back home to some sad news though - my Auntie Daisy passed away on Thursday evening - she is actually my Dad's Auntie but I always called her Auntie Daisy too :) She was such a character and will be sadly missed. My own wee girl Freya Daisy is named after her.
Two little girls were very VERY lucky this weekend though as Granny & Grandad gave them their Birthday present early.......so they have literally spent the last 48 hours bouncing up & down on their new trampoline!! Photo's to follow!!!
Back to Earth with a bump on Saturday with a Class at the Paper Crafts Studio - had to do a last minute change as the Maya Road delivery didn't make it in time! Eeeek! But we decorated a 7Gypsies Mini Purse with the lush lush Anthologie papers and every one was happy :)
Just had a lazy day yesterday - caught up on the house work and been busy baking today!
Annemiek is away to nursery looking like an absolute vision in pink......just look at her!!!!
We had a fun time on Sunday at the car boot sale! Annemiek managed to turn on her charm and got a leaotard set with skirt for £2....and also a video "how to be a Ballerina" which came with a litte pink tutu for 50p........only problem I have now is getting them to take them off!!!!!!!!! But you have to agree - they are adorable!
Been a busy busy girlie since the Funky Kits Website opened on Wednesday! The lady in the local post office says I am her new best friend!
Managed to escape for a few hours today up to the studio in Elgin. Karen had a demonstrator in from Do Crafts which seemed to be very popular - I had lots of fun helping out on the till. Back home now and feeling geared up to do some crafting of my own! Need to get the wee monkeys in bed first!
Had a rather rushed weekend - down to Glasgow for a Chef Awards Dinner on Sunday night, stayed the night in the luxurious Radisson Hotel :)
Back home yesterday to collect 2 hyper little girls who had a great time with Grammy & Grandad!
All systems go now for the new Funky Kits website....going LIVE on Thursday! Need to start thinking ahead for some future kits.....me likes window shopping!
Got to get my card stand filled up in the local shop.....then teach my Class at the Studio on the 20th then I can start to look forward to my own personal crafty indulgence....my upcoming trip to Holland for Scrap-a-Ganza! Yaaaaaaaaay!
No photos to share today......but I might get a chance to play with some pretty paper later & try out some new ideas!
We had a lovely picnic in the park yesterday but oh my it was soooooo hot! The girls were very good at keeping their hats on though! Plus they looked super-cool! Thankfully it is a lot cooler today so the sunscreen is back in the cupboard :)
Had a bizarre propsosition yesterday! We go to a coffee shop in Aberlour quite often...especially when I have nearly 3 hours to kill....and the Chef, James, is a really nice guy. Well.....I think he may be under some strange illusion that because Addy is a chef that I must be able to cook too and has asked if I would like to work one day a week to come in and do all his baking!!! How mad is that!! I told him that I doubted I was anywhere near coffee shop material (more botched fairy cakes with the kids!) but he must be really desparate! I have to make a few samples to hand in so we will see how it goes! Who knows - it could be the start of something good! And heaven knows the extra cash would be handy!! So I am away in search of yummy traybakes & cakes!!!!
