I had a glorious two days off! Thursday we had snow so I was so glad I was warm and cosy in the house, yes Jules I was in my jammies all day, lol! Watched CSI dvds all day and scrapped up a storm! Managed 5 LOs so was very happy. Friday was so cold but even so most of the snow melted although there are still a few patches where the sun doesn't reach. I watched a few movies and scrapped, did 4 LOs, so all in all I achieved what I set out to do. RESULT!!
Friday night we were due to have Kentucky Fried Chicken for dinner and I had been craving it the whole day. Stu came home at about 6 with the sad news that there was a fire in the shops kitchen and there was no kentucky for dinner :( I was gutted! But he had stopped at the place next door and got us some pies, so we could have pies, chips and gravy, except the chips were finished and I am not too keen on the 'place next door'..... So anyway after a while I started planning what we could have with our pies and decided that it wasn't so bad and I mustn't be such an ungrateful old bag, the fact that he had actually made an alternate plan for dinner was good of him. So I went down stairs to watch tv and have a cup of tea and when I walked into the kitchen there it was.....the bucket of KFC, he had tricked me and I was so happy I nearly cried.....I am a simple soul, easily pleased, lol! He is my hero and I love him to bits.
Saturday was a shopping day and besides the stuff on my list I also bought some beads to make a bracelet, loved the result but am determined not to get hooked on another hobby! Will try upload a pic tonight I think I finally have this think sussed, lol. Only took me about 7 months!!
Chinese meal on Saturday night was awesome, £14.00 a head eat as much as you like...YUMMY YUM YUM, crispy duck! We also tried a bottle of chinese chardonnay, and I must say it was very good, but a bit strong, IYKWIM!
Yesterday was the stamperama show in Stevenage which Stu took me to, he really is a sweet thing. Met up with Sue from the pad and had a nice chat to her, I so love meeting up with cyber buddies. After the show we stopped off at the hermit for a beer, I haven't been to a pub for ages and it was nice to be out with no distracting tvs or pcs that we could just chat. We finished the day off with a walk to see the cows and were lucky to be there for feeding time so I got some great photos. Oh and there were lots of calves too, soooo cute!
Last night I made a start sorting my stash, I have put some things on the marketplace on UKS and had some interest already. Need to sort the paper into packs and get the sticker sheets photographed. I am not looking to replace the stuff I sell as it will take me forever to get through the stuff I am keeping, but I would like a new shelf for the office so will put the money towards that.
I have just heard that a mate from SA has a job teaching english in Brazil, way to go Clive, you will have a ball, really happy for you!
