Blimey where did that week go?

I want to know what happens to my time, it seems to wizz by without me even knowing it, I can't believe its been a over a week since Miles and I went up to London.

I know where my weekend went it was spent moving my eldest Tom into his new flat with his girlfriend Laura ahhh young love it's so lovely to see them together, it does make me feel really old though. At least I wasn't a blubbering wreck on the way home like I was when he first moved to Bristol I seem to have toughened up. The move went really well and it's a lovely flat so I hope they'll be really happy there. I must say that Laura is really lovely and has the most beautiful shoes you have ever seen, I should have taken photos of them they were that good, and Tom informs me that he chose at least 3 of the pairs (great taste my boy has, gets it from his mummy) .

Sunday was taken up with the twins football match which they won 7-1 well done boys, so that was the weekend.

I have done some crafting and as I missed the knitting and stitching show at Alexandra Palace I've been going through my ridiculously large stash of fabric, one day I'll post a photo of it but I'm not sure if hubby reads my blog and he might start adding up all those fat quarters and metres of divine fabric and come to an appalling sum of money yikes!!!

I know I'm not the only one that goes completely stupid when faced with gorgeous fabrics my mum and both sisters are the same and I know many of you bloggy ladies are the same, it's an addiction I tell you, an addiction I don't want to go into re-hab for thank you very much.

I've been doing a lot of cutting and sticking as my lovely husband calls it, I have a bit of a thing for the letter K and have quite a few dotted around the house so i decoupaged one of my plain wooden ones and I think it turned out quite well, I've also been buying those blank canvas's from the 99p shop so cheap and great if your just sticking pretty things to it I'm not sure they are great to paint on though.

I decorated one of these and again I like the way it turned out, I've also been sorting out my Halloween decorations I didn't realise I had quite so many so if anyone sees me in TK Maxx looking lovingly at the pumpkins feel free to usher me away.

I made so button flowers with some of my collection and added some silver springy things to go with them which go nicely in my White Friers vase which I bought a couple of years ago for £1 and am reliably informed is worth £35-£40, not bad eh.
I think that's enough wittering for now

speak soon

Hi Kate,

you have been busy - no wonder your week has flown by!
My little brother went to Bristol University, he left a few years ago now though, but thoroughly enjoyed his time there.

I know Chris reads my blog, especially when he is away, and I dread him reading about purchases - new and old - and figuring out that I actually spend more on this stuff than make back in sales :-S

Have a great week :-)
