Steamy Sunday

Today I have a date with the iron, oh yes lots and lots to do but as soon as I have drunk my cuppa, I shall get on to it.

As a treat, we are going for an early lunch at Blue Jay, I will need the treat after all the ironing.

So Pippa left yesterday which was very sad and now the house feels so empty.  I guess that is just what happens but, we are really really pleased to have her again if her folks go away. It was lovely to dog sit.

Mum, Christiana and I nipped up to TK Max yesterday and Christiana managed to find a few bits to take home with her, a jacket, leggings and a bag that she didnt buy (it was a tad expensive).  As TK Max was next to Hobbycraft and mum hadnt been in, it would have been rude to walk straight past so, we went in.  Some wool at wonderful prices was on sale so as Christiana wanted a hat or two, I purchased the wall and a pattern and mum got her knitting needles out last night.  I think mum may have started something.

It is Happy Birthday to Leah today.  Leah is Paul's nephew's wife and here is the card I made her.

The photograph isnt too good as it was taken in a rush but I loved making these little 4 x 4 cards, so bright and sparkly.  You cant really see the sparkle here though.

Unfortunately, Sophia has had a telephone stolen from her when she was in Tesco in Preston.  It was taken out of her pocket but it wasnt even her phone.  She had borrowed it,  from one of the boys as it had an English sim card in and if she got lost, she could call her sister to find her way back home and some one just put their hand in her pocket and took it.  How awful.

Off to start all that ironing (I didnt mention all the quilt covers and pillow cases that I have yet to wash).  Have a great day and I hope you stay warm.
