sunday morning

thankfully spring has finally sprung here and it promises to be a glorious day and best of all i'm on holiday from work till Thursday - yay! here's hoping it lasts till then. so now a quick summary of the last few weeks:

i have been steadily stitching away, mostly on Homer as i am desperate to get this off but only got a couple of pages to do now.. made a couple of purchases this tote bag which is really really bright, i went for green - have no idea what design to go for but I am sure inspiration will hit me one day and also miracles happen which just always makes me laugh.


we enjoyed ourselves at Disneyland paris, a good few days were had by all. I even went on a couple of reasonably scary rides - well scary enough for me lol.

Lesson of the week learned - just because kids can get on a ride does not mean it is a "kid's ride"! As i found out on Crush's coaster which took me a bit by surprise to say the least...

the kids of course went on anything they could get on - fair play to them. It was hideously expensive in the park though - £6.50 for a pint of beer! - and the food was pretty dire. But all in all we would probably go back for a couple of days as it so easy for us to get to.

as for the summer holidays we have bought a tent, we've never really been proper camping before but only planning to go for a couple of nights at a time and not too far from home. Just need to get a bit more practice getting the tent up and we'll be off. That's if me and dh can manage that without too much arguing...

plan for the week

  • finish another page on Homer and maybe sneek in a bit more on HAED Twilight Shimmer
  • get my front garden sorted
  • get stuck in The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon - i am halfway through but it feels like the never ending story at the moment.
well that's all for now folks - thanks for stopping by and commenting, all much appreciated.
