Grandson Jacks 1st real Bicycle ride

By golly I think he has the hang of it now, out with Grandad Chris this afternoon.
He did his first real bike ride and rode for 1 mile.

They have such fun together even if Grandads ears are still ringing, Jack could talk the ears off a donkey.

Strange Day

It was a strange old day yesterday, I spent the day with my youngest daughter Natalie.

Those of you that know Natalie will know that she is not a girlie type of girl, more of the grungy type really.

We headed off to town and it seamed we were destined to do shopping, Natalie was going to a wedding night, one of her work colleagues was married abroad and was having a party back home for her friends.

Firstly we went looking for lingerie girlie ones, once we had that is was haircut and eyebrow tidy, then we found a handbag that is the first one that Natalie has owned and then……… we went make up shopping, we had already decided on Bare Minerals, I use it for TV and Natalie has often used it on special nights out. The assistant in Debenhams was brilliant, she did a make over on Natalie so we could get the best colours that matched her skin tones and we settled for a starter kit as this gave her everything she needed including the brushes.

This is Natalie after her night out.

And a close up, her make up is quite natural.

I think she is stunning.

And so the work begins...

Rising Damp, not the popular TV sitcom but in my Kitchen.

It is dropping apart, mould climbing up the walls sulphur seeping through the plaster eeek what a job we have ahead of us.

So the boys are here this morning fixing a new fuse box ready for the demolition work of the walls and units.


We will be going right back to the brick. We will be without a working kitchen for around 2 to 3 weeks once it gets underway.

So if anyone out there would like to take pity during this time and make us a roast chicken dinner it would be more than welcome ha ha!

No Sewing

I found a lovely site for materials and haberdashery Terry’s Fabrics, I browsed it all ha ha! I have to do that before making my choices as I kept finding something else I would want.
I decided on a selection of plain organza I thought I could use it for inside of the gift boxes I make but I soon got to thinking of bows. I cut off a thing strip no sewing involved and tied it into a sweet bow for this baby card
It worked perfectly.
Papers used is from Kaisercraft, so many sweet elements in the baby paper pad.
Terrys Logo in black square
I ended up getting two lots of PVC Fabric, I was going to cover some chair seats but I love it so much that I’m keeping it for the garden table, it’s washable so I will be able to use it over and over again, so sewing big bonus for me.
Close ups
there is so many designs in this I may need to pop back and get more.
I was thinking that these cut also be cut out to add to cards too as there is no fraying with the PVC Fabric.
