Halloo!

Becky over here the sea is quite choppy, the wind is blowing but still no need for a coat I am pleased to say.

Have been doing some sorting out this morning and I came across a box with some money it - 30 made up of a twenty and two fives.  Feeling as though I had won the Lottery I took myself off to Tesco for a few important supplies and thought I would pay with my new found wealth.  OMG, the notes were all out of date Embarassed  So embarrassed.  Am now searching through all pockets and bags just in case there's more then I'm off to the bank in the hopes they will change them for me.

how embarassing Mickie! hope the bank does change them -after all they aren't pre decimal (are they  Laughing ) You will have to buy another lot of goodies if they do.
It has been raining all day today and still going. but went out for a lovley lunch with a lady I worked with who has now retired -am working on getting her into crochet!
Running my dyeing workshop tomorrow -hope it all goes to plan

Hello Everyone Glad I have not been struck off as a result of long absence! Thought I was going to have more time on turning part-time but in fact the other part seems to have filled up. Partly because my son is living with us now, taking a gap year and I have been trying to help him with various things.  Partly because I have taken on some private SLT work too.  Need to get the craft things out again! Bought my first rubber stamp in about a year today though, so that's a start...
Sarah

PS Interested in your find Mickie! Were any of them those large green 1 notes? Maybe you could sell them in Antiques part of Ebay!
Mickie

Welcome back Sarah - good to hear from you.  

No, there were no 1 notes in amongst the find - I have not found any more either, so next time I am in town I will call in at the bank and hope they can help.

Another miserable day here, grimly reminding that winter is on its way.  Having said that I can see a slither of blue sky peaking up over the roof tops (where my sea view used to be Crying or Very sad)  Might well turn into a nice afternoon and evening.

welcome back Sarah -are you back in the UK now? hope you enjoy the private work -is it a contract with a school? My old colleagues keep telling me about posts but I am not interested in going back -enjoying my retirement too much for that.

Becky we often find self catering places to be dimly lit (they think everyone watches TV all day) so we always take some stronger light bulbs when we go -have to remember to swap back before you leave tho

Lovely to hear from you again Sarah. Hope you manage to fit some crafting into your busy life.

We're actually having lovely weather here at the moment - no wind and the sun is shining.

Shetland Scrapbookers are having a weekend session in a country hall on Friday and Saturday. We're not staying overnight but we are able to leave our stuff out. Still have to gather all my bits and pieces. Bound to forget something! Looking forward to having a lot of time to spend on scrapbook layouts - I seem to be making more cards now.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday Becky and that the weather improves for all of you. Margaret

that sounds lovely Margaret -hopefully if you forget something someone else may have it!

Swimming and piano lesson today and a quick visit to a fairly new fabric shop -good prices so will be visitng with a list next time.

Hi everyone I am now back home after a fabulous week away.  I had a great time in Exeter with family and friends and a fabulous time with Brenda Brown and Chris Warner, two of my design teamies on A Vintage Journey and Country View Crafts.  Lots of chatting, crafting (we made a great box book), swopping ideas, swapping die cuts and I got to visit the Country View Crafts online shop and met Susan.  Wow, fabulous being surrounded by all those lovely goodies - I indulged a bit (would have been rude not to !) and had to wear rather a lot of clothes home today in order to shut my case  Laughing

Lovely to hear from you again Sarah - I hope you find time to use your new stamp!

I have not thought of money going out of date Mickie - just mentioned it to Terry and he's gone looking in a drawer (seems he might have a secret stash  Laughing )

Enjoy the rest of the holiday Becky and I hope your dyeing workshop goes well Vonny.
Mickie

Good news!  Bank was happy to give me new notes for old.  Loved your idea Becky so have put the money in a safe place Laughing

Thought that was a brilliant idea with the light bulbs Vonny.  Have made a note for future use.

Margaret and Jennie you Shetlanders are having it all at the moment so do make the most of it.  Your two day scrapbooking event sounds really good.  We will all be looking forward to the photos appearing in your galleries.

You sound to have had a great time Jennie.  Back to rehearsals now - apropos which, did yet another matinee yesterday.  The last for this year boo hoo.  It was The Perfect Murder by Peter James and starring Robert Dawes and Dawn Steele, plus other whose names I forget but we all know from the telly. This production was amazing and I am still smiling

Morning ladies came home yesterday weather wasn't brill and it means we get to have a whole day in today rather than travelling we found a couple of craft shop on the web with opening times and stock etc and when we went there they had both shut down and one we went to it was a very wet day  Evil or Very Mad never went to Newton Abbot I knew that one had gone. We now have a craft show in Tonbridge to look forward to and we will have a couple of nights away then that is the beginning of Nov how far are you away from Tonbridge Mickie, glad you got your money sorted.Glad you had a good time away I have met Brenda once at a workshop we were doing and she is lovely.

Sounds interesting Becky - not heard of a craft fair in Tonbridge  where is it held and what are the dates please?

Shame you had such horrid weather but on the bright side you have a whole days extra crafting Laughing

I started a cold a couple of days ago and although I feel much improved I still have a cough which I am hoping will go in time for tomorrow as I am off to The Craft Barn and a class with Jofy   We will be making a Tando clock - not that I need to have another clock but I haven't been able to get on any of her previous workshops that when the opportunity for this one arose I grabbed at it!

Sounds like we're all busy with workshops at the moment. I've had a productive weekend with Shetland Scrapbooker's and did 2 big layouts and some pages in my yoga journal. I've posted some pictures in my gallery. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend. Margaret
