After the Weekend

Friday was so exciting. The launch of The Daring Cardmakers Blog had us all hopping about in anticipation in our various homes in both the UK and NZ.
The reaction has been fantastic, we're thrilled to bits over the positive comments and delighted that so many Crafty Friends new and old have already joined in with this week's Dare.
If you've not had a go yet, please join in - we'd love to see your cards.

We went out with some friends on Friday evening for a fabby curry, it's been a while since we managed to arrange something so it was great to be able to catch up with the news and have a good laugh. We all had different meals for once, but I stuck with the house special of the restaurent which is too tasty to veer away from - boring, I know, but I just don't care!

We had a shopping trip on Saturday which proved tiresome and frustrating. We went to John Lewis to try and sort out some new curtains for our bedroom and the dining room. It started well as we saw some cushions which will be great on the new sofas (when they arrive), then we found fabric that we liked for both rooms. That was when the fun started and it's too long a catalogue of dead ends to bore you with so I won't. I had no idea that getting curtain poles would be so complicated....Back to the drawing board.

By the time we got out of there (without ordering anything) it was about 2pm and we'd gone right off the whole "shopping" thing so we went and had lunch in one of our favourite pubs to console ourselves.

I suppose Sunday must have happened, but can't think of anything to report - well except I wanted to start another LO and got a nice lot of paper out........then put it back in the box when inspiration failed to strike.

Can't even show you the pretty pictures hubby took at the weekend because I can't find them.

Might as well go and have another cup of coffee then
