Hello everyone - it is a beautiful day here on the coast, the sea is sparkling and above all, we have SUNSHINE.  No coat needed today!  I am going to continue my "convalescence" with some gentle crafting - still have my ATCs to do.

Have a good day

A lovely quiet day here with no wind or rain lashing the windows!

I do hope you start feeling better soon Mickie - it does seem to be hanging around it. Certainly outstayed its welcome.

Hopefully this week will run a little slower than last week - not sure where the days went at all  Laughing It would be rather nice to have an extra hour every day I think.

I think you need more than one extra hour a day Jennie think you need a few extra days a week.

Still dog sitting they are so sweet but it will be nice to be home now so I can sit in my chair with my legs up and although I brought crafting stuff with me you always need something that is at home  Very Happy going to visit Zoe & co for lunch then back to dogs and then craft club tonight.

Sorry you got two posts!  I have tried to delete it but no luck!

Two hours scraping 1940s blue paint off the downstairs toilet walls and now down to the 1920s (I think) distemper. It has sat half scraped since we went away in the summer so we just have to do something about it! Hopefully we can get the wallpaper up at the end of the week. And the sun is shining so a lovely day outside too - off for a walk after lunch, then I too will put my feet up Becky  Very Happy

I am having a whole day in which is good as it is very wet outside we are back home now Libs isn't very well so they came home yesterday which is a shame for them we did go and see them for lunch yesterday and Libs had me making bracelets in the playroom she is so funny.

Another lovely sunny day here today - went for an early walk with Aimee in case the weather changed and then scraped paint for another hour. But now finished  Very Happy Painting and Wallpapering next - not my fun bits either

shame you can't think of it as a very large art project!
Dull and drizzly here and got wetter after I washed the car! Been making a few ATCs for next month!
Mickie

Had to go and pick up my new specs today and got soaked to the skin in the process Rolling Eyes  The rain was of such biblical proportions I fully expected to see Noah and his ark coming up the Channel - that is had I been able to see the Channel!  

New specs are good - always surprises me how much clearer and brighter the world is through new specs.

Shall be spending the rest of the day crafting I think.  I seem to have slipped quite a way behind.

Yes, Becky, I am still on for Sunday.  Someone told me that they are small shows and I immediately thought of Worthing.  Let us hope it will have stopped raining by then too.  Should hate to have to have a rudder fitted to the car Laughing

You'll glad when the decorating is over Jennie, although as Vonny says, you could view it as an arty/crafty project along the shabby chic lines that is so on-trend at the moment....................................OK, I'll shut up now.....
vonny

only had three people at my group today as the others were at a Halloween disco! Did some prep for other weeks and one had a go with the mini peg loom and got on with it really well. Sat down for most of the session too!
Jennie

Your biblical rain made me laugh Mickie!

It has been really lovely here but the wind has been building tonight. It was an EXHAUSTING panto rehearsal tonight. The last three big songs had to be choreographed and as one of the merry men I have to leap around the stage to the extent that I think I now need to invest in jogging underwear  Laughing Tena Lady might also have to be considered . We get our costumes next week so i might get a photo or two on before we start.

This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but Terry has decided to do his Ocean Yachtmaster which means he will be in Southampton for a week at the end of March next year. I am not sure whether it is worth my while coming down but if I did is this near enough to some of you  to have a get together?? I am also planning to go to New York in mid April so it all might be a no goer, but I just thought I would see what you thought. I could come down towards the end of the week and then meet up with Terry and visit friends before coming home. Let me know what you think.
Beckyb

Me and Keith are up for it Jennie it would be nice to catch up again.

Looking forward to seeing you Mickie we are planning to leave home at 9 so will be there around 11ish. It is a small show like worthing but I have never had probs spending money there  Very Happy

Having a day have nothing planned, tonight we are going to Daniel's Halloween light  show.

Had a lovely day yesterday - M&S have some really nice things in at the moment and I bought a casual outfit to wear during Christmas week.  When I got home I found I already had a jacket, dress and two scarves to match.  Think that's me sorted for the festivities!

Beautiful day again today and I sat out on the decking with my early morning cuppa!  Had lunch out there too.  Can't believe the change in the weather from Wednesday.

Jennie, I would certainly think seriously about getting to Southampton.  I did chuckle at the thought of you cavorting round the stage in your joggers.

Shame you didn't have a full house this week Vonny - hope plot night won't prove too much of a distraction for them next week too

Morning all another sunny day here. Went to lightshow last night Daniel raised 280 it is going to a children cancer named Piam Brown which is at Southampton General so proud of him he was not a easy child  Laughing

Going to do a workshop this morning it is the one I missed while on hol and Carolyn was determined that I should do it so gatecrashing on the class I missed. Then home to pack as leaving early tomorrow to go to craft show.

I reckon I could get to Southampton and perhaps stay overnight as it would be great to get together with everyone -will depend on the dates really but love the idea! Very Happy
Wnet to a Makers Market today supporting the local hospice -lots of sewing, knitting and jewellery but found some handmade soap(my most common purchase). Also bought some xmas tree bunting to liven up the decorations, a pair of earrings and some hand knitted mittens (too good a price to pass up). Feel rather festive now especailly as I practised a few carols at my piano lesson
Tis the season.... tra la la...
Mickie

Have just typed a longish post and when I went to submit, it just disappeared as in gone, vanished.

The gist of it was that Vonny's Makers Market sounded like it might be a really good fund raiser and I thought I might look out for anything like that here and well done to Daniel for raising funds for the children's cancer unit at Southampton General.

Also, what fun it will be if we can all get together next year.  Not sure how far Southampton is from me but staying over sounds good too.  Let us hope the plan will come together.

Speaking of reunions, am so looking forward to catching up with you tomorrow Becky.
Beckyb

So am I Mickie it will be fun will phone you on your mobile when we get there.

If there's no answer it will mean I am still driving and then I will phone you when I get there Laughing

It's all good fun isn't it?

Can't believe we're at the end of another week and now into November. I seem to have had a busy week - I was on the Lifeboat shop yesterday. It wasn't busy so I got a lot of reading done! Then I made my Xmas cakes - I always make a few to give as presents. I managed to get caught up on a few challenges too. I've done my ATCs for Nov but still have to make the tag. I do have an idea though so will need to get going.

Jennie - I had to laugh at your description of your pantomime rehearsal. Sounds very energetic!

Mickie and Becky - hope you enjoy your workshop today. I'm doing an online course next week with Online Cards - I like their courses as you get lots of ideas. Margaret
