Thursday Treat from Jean !!

Jeans Wonderful Wedding Card
 
Jeans Beautiful Birthday card
 

Good Thursday Morning Lovely Friends,
I wanted to share with you today a couple of Jean's cards, both absolutely stunning in different ways.
The Wedding Card is just so elegant and I love the fact that you have done it in cream and not
white, I never think of doing that and I don't know why, it looks amazing and is somehow 'softer' in cream.
I love the different opening of the card, allowing you to decorate with the front in a totally different way, using the rows of pearls to highlight the edges of the card is an amazing idea, those little flowers are so delicate and actually I think delicate is a good way to describe the 'feel' of the card.
I am not sure what the embossing folder is that you have used but whatever it is its really pretty, without being over the top. 
The sentiment is one I have never seen before too, but looks great on your card, the finishing touches of the bows and the little gemstones dotted here and there is just finish the card perfectly.

Now on to the second of Jeans cards, I can see that you have got something pretty in aqua behind your latticed from, that almost looks like a Moroccan Screen, I can see some pretty lace beneath the those gorgeous flowers , I just love that aqua and white colour theme and those flowers are so pretty, finished with those little aqua and white pearls.
Jean thank you so much for allowing me to share these stunning cards with our friends here in the café, I am so thankful to you for the inspiration and I know all of the ladies will be too.
Pat I was so happy to read Pete's great news yesterday, it made my day, I hope it has made Pete smile too, he is amazing the way he copes with his illness and always has such a great sense of humour!
Sending Huge Hugs to both of you, I was so grateful of your visit on Monday, thank you xxxx
Margaret, I hope that your Grandson is feeling better today and that it was a simple tummy bug and not that horrible Noro Virus, sending hugs to you all xxxx
Sam, my lovely, I hope that you get some good news regarding your operation, waiting around must be so frustrating for you, your whole house will be sparkling if you are delayed any longer, just get in that craft room and have fun, sending hugs to you xxxxx
Sue, thank you so much for coming over on Tuesday, I know you weren't feeling 100%, I want you to know it meant the world to me and Milo & Bella, they love their new tree! xxxx
Well I must go and see the girls off to school, they are doing Mock, mock exams this week and next and boy are they getting their selves wound up bless them, they have 3 today, I will be pleased for them when this fortnight is over.  Unfortunately the exam system here has changed for them, when Matt and Becca did their exams a few years ago the overall mark was made up of course work and the final exam, which I think that this was a great way of understanding the child's abilities, for Sophie and Lucy its all down to the exam on the day, which if they have got themselves in a 'pickle'
it could affect their result, so its all down to that one day, which is how we did it.
I will pop in and catch up with you all later,
Love and hugs
Sandra

  1. Good morning, looks like I am first in today. Off to work soon so I will quickly get things ready.
    Jean, your cards are both beautiful, the wedding card is stunning and gorgeous, love the whole design. The other one in those Aqua and white colours is also gorgeous, love how you have put the two designs together inside the cut out.
    Margaret, I hope you and Derek are both ok and haven't caught the bug, oh my sister last night wanting you to get it? It goes to show how easy what we are thinking can be changed by missing a word out??
    All the talk last night about product name changes and how we all seem to remember the same ones too? Goes to show how like minded we all are. Or of the same age!! Poor Lynda I bet she wishes she hadn't mentioned it was her birthday soon, she had 41 years added.
    As for health and safety. It's all been taken a step to far, yes it's there to protect us BUT are we not endangering ourselves everyday by buying things from these companies? As we think because it's got a safety label we think it's safe??? Who knows these days?
    Oh I have just looked at the clock I'd better go get going and go see how grumpy those two girls are this morning? They are so tired and mummy took them on a 50 mile round trip to do an hours jumping lesson last night - she needs to let them have time off, they are both in completions all weekend, Beth is Shetland pony racing and Anna is eventing. Be in later I will need a cup of tea by the time I get back. Hazel x

    2. I know you don't look 109 Lynda (cos 109 is the Bus into Croydon)
      You are only a couple of years younger than me!!!!!!
      And a couple of years older than Maureen's and my granddaughters!!!
      Did we tell you they are 9 on July 2nd?
      Of course THATS the same date as your Birthday!!!!!
      LOL Brenda xxx

    3. Oh Brenda! I'm so glad all the words were typed and in the correct order! Every time you see that bus you'll think of Lynda! Thank goodness you made it clear it was the Number!! I'm going to be in big trouble today. Nothing new there then! Xxx

      Delete
    4. Lynda I am just a couple years younger, but some days I feel 109. I thought children were meant to keep you young, not make you feel older. When you read that these women are wanting to have their first child at between 50-60 are they mad??? Do they not know they only stay tiny for only a blink of an eye? They are teenagers before you know it and oh boy you know it when they come one. Hazel x

    5. Brenda OB, I could be 109 because I look like the back of a bus!!! xxx

    7. Maureen, You clearly have not seen the back of a 109 Bus.
      Some have adverts on for Shows in London, showing very scantily dressed young ladies !!! ........ Oops Oh! Was that the one you posed for ? Now what are you not telling us? Singing, dancing how many other careers. LOL xxx

    8. Thank you ladies now that was kind. 109 now I'm the back of the Croydon Bus bet my bus would have pictures of shrek on the back haha Hug's Lynda xx

  2. Good morning Sandra and the Coffee Shop Gang. Hope you all a good day ahead.
    SANDRA:- wishing the girls all the best for today. Exams are a daunting thing, no matter how clever you are there always seems to be a stumbling Block thrown in for good measure!!!
    JEAN :- your cards are stunning, love them both. The Wedding card design is wonderful. I waste so much card when I use that design. Always seem to cut the Diagonals wrong, get there n the end though.
    MARGARET :- I really do hope the little lad is better today. Sending a few (((hugs))) for him. Just you give him those .... don't tell him they are from a strange woman, don't want him scared as well as sick.!!!
    Well the forecast was for better weather today, nothing here as yet. At the moment I have nothing to go out for so looks like it might be yet another stay at home and "play" day!!
    Place looking good as always, taken my Tea & Toast over to my usual table by the window to watch and wait.
    Hugs the basket by the door. See you all later xxx

    Jean-two totally amazing cards. I love the style of the wedding card & so delicate in cream. The birthday card is just beautiful & just a hint of colour behind the background.

    Am hoping work is problem free again today. My boss is now not likely to be off the same week as me so I can leave her in charge of checking the test results-yeah!!!!!!!

  4. Morning one & all,

    The sun is trying to break through the clouds, the weather report last night was for some cloud cover so I guess it'll be a good day to get in the garden.

    I love your wedding card Jean, so beautiful, elegant and the overall effect of the unusual opening makes it stunning too.
    I prefer cream too, it's not so harsh as white at times when you want a delicate finish.
    The birthday card is equally delicious, the aqua peeping out from the fretwork and in the flowers balance out your design beautifully.
    Sandra, wish your girls 'Good luck' from me. Exam time is always stressful no matter how much you prepare.
    Margaret ((((hugs)))) for your little grandson, I hope he is feeling better soon.
    Sam, take it easy whilst waiting for your op date.
    Got the last of the clearing out of my guest room, I've done it in stages so it was not such a daunting task. Big bag of crafting goodies to go to the school for their end of term play day so again it's onwards and upwards.
    Love 7 hugs

  5. Bon Jour to all who pop in today
    Jean your cards are just beautiful - both in their own way are pure and say everything they should for each occasion. I would be on cloud 9 if one were to drop through my letterbox. I would love to see more of your wonderful wok.

    Sandra - good luck to your beautiful girls. Exams are horrible. I cannot count the number of times I've had wet shoulders when working both before and after exams. Even the ones you would never have thought would collapse. I was Auntie Janet to all 6th formers and I went through their stresses of exams with them.

    Margaret I hope your little one is feeling better today. It doesn't matter whether they're your children, grandchildren or even great grandchildren they always worry us.

    Well we have another glorious day here and I'm on my own for the morning as Jim has gone into Never to the large Brico Depot to buy wood to finish off the cupboard he is making. It's a 90km round trip so I'll be worrying until he gets back. Silly I know but I always do when he is out on his own especially when we are over here. He always says it doesn't matter whether I'm in the car with him or not if something is going to happen it will and there's nothing either of us can do about it. I'm sure it's a man thing.

    Anyway I've a card to finish off and then wrack my one little grey cell for inspiration for a 50th bday card for Jim's eldest Daughter and she is a nightmare to make a card for.

    I had a message yesterday from my Daughter telling me hat I'd had a letter from the hospital giving me an apptment for a bone density scan on 1st July.
    When I saw my wonderful GP the week before we came across we talked about the need for this and he was going to arrange an apptment for when I get back at the start of Sept. as we both thought that it would take that long anyway to get one. Oh no they decide to be efficient and organise one while I'm here. So I had to call them and cancel that apptment and I have to call them the week before I go back to arrange another. They've done this to me before so I really should have expected it shouldn't I.

    Off now to make the most of my morning. I hope my hugs are getting there and that they're not stopping off in Scotland and having a party with Norah's hugs. Speak to you all later. xxxx

  6. Hello Sandra,
    I hope the girls mock, mocks go welll and that they don't get too stressed out with them. I don't know why the Government keep tinkering with the exams, there was nothing wrong with the old system and you knew where you were with it.
    Jean's cards are gorgeous, and as you say the cream wedding card is "softer" than a bright white. They are both just beautiful.
    Hazel, take it easy - those girls never seem to get any rest.
    Patricia, have a good day at home, maybe a little crafting?
    Michele, such a pity your boss will be at work when you're off, means you won't be coming here for a week lol. Good for you though, you won't be interrupted whilst enjoying yourself.
    Cheryl, enjoy your day in the garden, but don't work too hard.
    Janet, another glorious day for you is it?, well it's dull here but at least it's not raining. The trouble is that it's Hoppings week, and it always rains all week here when the Hoppings are on.
    Right, I'd better shake a leg, I''m in year 3 today - but am hoping to sneak into the forest school later this morning as Zoe's class are in there.
    Love and hugs Maureen xx

  7. Good morning my lovely coffee shop beauties,
    Oh Jean i do like both your cards because they are so very different. The ivory of the wedding card is so pretty and every bit as beautiful as my love of white on white, this would come into my loved category. I don't go in for garish colours and as you know black for me is best kept to a minimum. The white and pale pale mint is a beautiful combination in the flowers of your second card, bringing out the mint from underneath just beautifully. I love how you have done the criss cross pattern in the aperture but finished it off with a beautiful Gemini die, which changes it all together. Both are so beautiful and i hope that the recipients cherish them as they are a beautiful work of art and labour of love. Thank you Jean for letting us see them.
    Right now, we all know my brain does not work to full capacity the majority of the time but this has obviously flown either right through one ear and out the other or something but who is Mrs B's mum? Come on own up as that just knocked me out last night about mum as i didn't realise that Mrs B's mum was in the cafe also, take pity on a poor idiot please and put her out of her misery.
    Sandra flower i thought that when they changed the exams for the better in my opinion a few years back to going on course work and the end of time exam was a far better way to do it as i don't suppose i was the only one that got their knickers in a twist or briefs in a fankle all because of them and got lousy results just because of a blank mind and nerves taking over. Poor Sophie and Lucy, they need a banana on days like this to keep their brains working up to full power and keep them going as best they can. Give them a hug and i have everything crossed for them as at least they can go back and appeal with their mocks if their real ones go wrong, but they wont because they are both brilliant girls and so clever.
    Margaret, what is the doc doing about the wee fella and his poor mummy? or is it the usual war cry of "it's a virus and there's nothing we can do for it. Just take plenty of fluids and rest and it will go away" . AYE right then, as it still doesn't make you feel like living knowing that, poor wee scone.
    Rory has to be in school today for 9:15 as he has some more filming to do for the National Art Gallery project that he has been working on with them. I so much prefer when they let him go at the normal starting time for school and he is also just got one calculation to do to get his Gold ASDAN which is what he has been working on since the start of June so i am really pleased as this is something that employers can take into consideration when looking at his skills.
    Well i am trying to get the male teachers cards finished today but trying to make them appropriate to the subjects that they taught. So a few still in front of me today so i will be across in my little corner working away. I have brought a basket full of rascals just waiting to jump on any willing soul that they meet,
    Love and crafty hugs

    1. Thank you Norah they have put our grandson back on his meds to calm everything down again as he has had problems with his tummy since he was born. He had a major dairy intolerance until he grew out of that partly when he was 6 but we still have to be extra careful. He was born with a reflux that did not heal by the time he was one year old and the local hospital said it could not still be there and his mummy was just an over anxious mother! She spit her dummy out at that and asked our GP to see someone more specialised he agreed and he is now under a wonderful consultant at Manchester who was shocked at the state of him but with very expensive medication got things much improved. Periodically he has to have endoscopies to see all is well but thankfully he is fast asleep and know nothing. When he was three years old they found a duodenal ulcer even the consultant was shocked when he came out of theatre to tell his parents what he had found, but he got that healed with more treatment thankfully.
      Rory is doing so well you have every right to be so proud of him.

      Mrs B is called Sue as you probably know . Her Mum is called Margaret not to be confused with Margaret + corgis!
      You can even see Sue and her Mum if you go back and look at the photos Lynda's husband Terry took at Ally Pally.

  9. Good morning Sandra and all the coffee shop crew
    Thank goodness I can come here for a coffee and five minutes peace and calm it is so lovely. Woke up this morning to find we have no water, why is it that we take it for granted until it is not there? Derek is off to Sainsbury's to get some bottled water, Our daughter has just arrived to say SIL now has the Nova virus too, she has brought our grandson to stay but at least he is a little better today so hopefully is over the worst, thank you so much for all your lovely messages for him, she has to go into school for meetings. We will be having a day filled with Disney programmes, drawing and writing stories and hopefully making a card for a little girl at school who is going to live in Spain, never a dull moment here!
    Water supplies just arrived thankfully Sainsbury actually had some and not as usual out of stock! At least the corgis can have a drink and Derek can now start his day with his cup of tea.
    Jean your cards are so beautiful I love the design of both of them and what a lovely delicate look you have given the wedding card I really like how you have incorporated the pearls and the little diamonds.
    Well Maureen we have rain here so stand by it will no doubt be coming your way, The Hoppings are always troubled by rain, just like Keswick convention over here I wonder why? I know it is said when Keswick convention first started they used to pray for rain to get people into the tents!
    Janet try and not worry too much, Jim will be fine, just look forward to going to the market tomorrow and your bakery shop I am looking forward to your Friday report! That is just typical of the NHS cannot get a simple appointment correct! So frustrating for you but luckily you were alerted to the early appointment.
    Derek has just checked with the Utilities apparently there is a major water main burst so we will be in for an interesting day!
    Saba hope all is calm with you and not too windy, take care and no skinny dipping remember you have class.
    Take care I will be back for some peace, quiet and another coffee later.
    My money is in the pot, coffee was lovely and my hugs and cuddles are over in the corner with Norah's having fun but please just help yourselves.

    2. Hi Margaret,
      have a nice day with grandson. He had a tough start in life. Amazes me at times how children seem to cope with illnesses better than us grown-ups. The nova-virus sound horrid when it's spread so easily. Enjoy your Disney and crafting and really hope you get the water back asap !

    3. Margaret:- enjoy all the "child friendly" activities today. It's amazing how the time passes when you are entertaining them or should I say they are entertaining you!!!
      No water is a real pain. If you are prepared at least you can have buckets and basins filled ..... but NONE!! that's a whole different ball game.
      When we lived abroad our drinking water came in these great big water flagons. I used to hate using that to flush the loo when we had frequent no water supplies. Happy days .... smile!!! xx

    4. Oh Margaret hope the water situation gets back to normal very soon! We do take it for granted don't we! Xxx

      Delete
    5. Margaret, I think the worst thing about no water is the toilets. You can get drinking water from the shops, but water to flush the toilet is another thing - when we have our water cut off (very rare) we use the water from the water butt in the garden to do that. I hope the family soon rally around and recover. xxx

  10. Sandra please give Sophie and Lucy my love and a big hug each, tell them I will be thinking of them and worrying is not going to make things any better I know saying keep calm is easier said than done but deep breathes help.
    They are always changing things for teachers too one year they must concentrate on this and that then the next year it is all change. On top of all that they have just changes all the referral forms for children with problems and as well as being deputy head Lisa is the SEN co-ordinator too she is ready to pull her hair out some days.

    1. Margaret, Sorry to read your SIL has now got this awful Nova Virus, hope the little man continues to improve, I'm sure he is in the best place to help his recovery.
      Hope Lisa is not expected to take a class as well as all her othe duties. When our daughter was in the same position, someone went on long term sick leave, she had to step in, teach and still carry out her other duties. Her school is in a very deprived area, so lots of problems. It is not appreciated how schools have to deal with so many problems that are not education related, but spill over into school life.

  11. Morning Sandra and all, cup of tea and some porridge with sunshine please to get the day going.
    Oh Jean your cards are both absolutely stunning ! Sandra is right saying with the cream instead for all white it's makes it look so much softer. Your birthday card is lovely with that screen and aqua card showing through.
    Good luck to all youngsters who are doing their mock and exams, hope they all do well.
    We managed to confuse you Norah hihi Mrs B's mum is Margaret without the corgi's, a very nice lady I had the luck to meet at AP.
    Hope Rory is having a good day.
    How about some sit down time Sam, hihi You are so energetic, has some rubbed off from the other whirlwinds ?
    I posted early this morning so not sure if you seen it but didn't get to sleep at all. I hope you had a good one again Maureen or ?

  12. Morning Sandra and all the coffee shop visitors,
    Oh my Lord what a lovely start to the morning with 2 exquisite card from Jean, they are truly beautiful Jean....I love the cross over wedding card, I haven't done this style for a while so will definitely think about it next time and I love the effect of the delicate mint and white flowers on the birthday card would love to know where I can get the mint from. The recipients will love their cards of that I am certain.
    Good luck to Sophie and Lucy with their Mock exams I'm sure they will be so relieved when they are all over, it's such a stressful time for them at the moment and it will be good when they can just chill out instead of having to revise and worry about exams.
    Gosh I had a really late night as I decided I needed/wanted to put my new comfy desk chair together....wrong idea! I was absolutely shattered by the time I had finished and oh what a palaver! But after thinking I had all the wrong screws and parts (just not used to that sort of thing!) I managed it and it's so comfy, I then crawled into bed at 3.30am! I have a hair appointment at 1.15 pm so can rest till then.
    I just have to put a few pearls on the card I finished last night andthen I will relax for a couple of hours.
    Enjoyed my latte...nice and strong to wake me up...have put money in the pot and put extra hugs in the basket....the cafe looks lovely this morning with the gorgeous flowers.
    See you all later
    Love and hugs

    2. Hi Maria,
      Hope you didn't get too cold outside the coffee shop last night we all must have left by the time you arrive so hope you had your thermals on! It is a swivel chair...good heavens I'd look like one of those ballerinas that swivel round in the old style music boxes....albeit an oddly shaped ballerina....no not a pretty sight!! Haha!. I think I got quite a bargain with it really it's chocolate brown leather faced (uncle has one so I knew what it would be like) and there was 15% off so got it for £58.64....so Sue's new dies will have to waait till next month now.....I love it though. Never want to see another screw again...I've found it surprising what I've learned to do since I lost my dear hubby and I hope he would be proud of me.
      Hugs Sheila xxx

    3. Sheila, how lovely to see you and to know that you have taken up furniture making as well as craft! You certainly got a bargain there and if you find any washers or screws on the floor, I'm sure you can use them on men's cards!!!
      I can vouch that standing on swivel chairs requires a certain amount of dexterity and balance -- neither of which I have now so had to give that up after falling again last year ha ha.
      I'm sure Clive is looking down and feeling proud of what you are achieving.

    Sandra, I am sure the girls will do well in their mock mocks. They deserve to after all of the revising they have been doing, that's for sure. I do feel for them as these days their whole school lives are dominated by exams and tests, it is not good, far too much pressure at such a young age! I am glad that Milo and Bella like their cat tree. Does Milo allow Bella to sit at the top now or is he still fighting her off. I bet the little hanging mice have been ripped to shreds already by him though, if the way he was playing with them on Tuesday was anything to go by. I really enjoyed playing with the paper clay too, you know how much I love trying new crafts. Ladies if you haven't tried it yet do have a go. Even I managed to make a half way decent rose and I am not good at that type of thing usually! The only problem is that now I want to get some for myself......more to add to the wish list : ) It is always so good to spend time with you my lovely. It was a shame that I missed Pat but what fantastic news she was getting about Pete.
    Pat, I am delighted to hear that Pete's levels are all down. You must both be over the moon, especially as he is not suffering from too many side effects either. Give Pete a hug from me and remind him not to hoover before we come over next week! I am looking forward to seeing you, it is strange when one of us is missing : )
    Margaret, I hope your grandson and your daughter are both on the mend, it is a nasty virus. Sorry to hear that your SIL now has it. My fingers are firmly crossed that you manage to avoid it too. I also hope that you get mains water back on again quickly. It makes you realise just how often we turn on the tap without even thinking about it! Weare very lucky aren't we.
    Sam I do hope you get your op very soon, you will be exhausted if they keep you waiting much longer, bless you.
    Janet, I know we are lucky to have the NHS but at times it does seem to mess up good and proper doesn't it! Try not to worry about Jim, just keep thinking of the lovely cupboard he is making you and what you will put where in it.
    Norah, my Mum is another Margaret (Margaret Palmer) who pops in to see what we are up to. She doesn't make cards but loves to see what beautiful creations are on here. She loves embroidery and cross stitch and knitting. She does like to tell you all tales of me when I was younger so it's a good job that we get on so well that I don't mind. We do both have the same daft sense of humour and have lots of tales we could tell, of each other : ) We will have our usual Friday meet up tomorrow, fingers crossed.
    Hazel, those poor girls! I am all for getting them involved in some out of school activities but they NEED some free time too. Some parents seem scared to let their children have a single spare moment to themselves these days, then they complain that they are always tired! I hope the girls enjoy the weekend though.
    I hope that you all have a good day, lots of you are busy both in and outside. I need to get a card finished and I have a pile of ironing to do so that's me sorted for today, then off to Beavers tonight when I will be teaching them basic tracking which is always fun.
    Take care. Hugs to you all.
    Sue xx

      Delete
    6. Now then Missy, you'll need more than an Anderson Shelter when I get hold of you!!!!
      The Hoppings started in the 1800's as a Temperance Fair (I remember it well!!). Over the years, more and more travellers arrived and now it is one of the biggest Travelling Fun Fairs in Europe. Not at all Temperance now. It can be quite tacky in parts, but it's good fun. I like to go to walk around, have a hot dog with loads of onions, mustard and tomato sauce, candy floss, or other rubbish that's on offer!!
      The only ride I can go on without being sick is the Helter Skelter but some of the rides are sooooo frightening. Rachel and Peter like to go on those, but I've never been able to as I get terrible motion sickness. Mam used to love to go but she always went to the side shows and played roll'a'penny and hook a duck!!! She was just so lovely and naive!! The girls love it as well, they have loads of rides for young and slightly older children. It's held on the Town Moor and usually rains the whole week that it's on, so that by the Friday it's a sea of mud. But people up here still flock to it and it does a roaring business. There are also more Gypsy Rose Lees than you can shake a fist at, who will all read your palm if you cross theirs with silver -- well I think it's £5 now - inflation, you know!!!
      So there's a snapshot of the Hoppings.
      Anybody seen Myra lol xxx

    7. Hello Dear! ,
      I'm ashamed to say it but as my son went to Newcastle University I actually knew about the Hoppings!! I just couldn't help it! I just got this picture of you all hopping one week , skipping the next - you get my drift! I'm sorry! - well I'm not really it was just fun! Xxx

    8. Hello your Hop pings translates to Feast Week here in the West Riding as we were then and yes it used to rain most of the week then so much so that by Friday the local farmers put duck boards down and covered them in straw. You can just imagine how everyone looked after an evening out. We were taken on the last night -Saturday- walking the mile it took to get from High Green to Capeltown and then on the way home yes on foot again calling at a local chip shop to have a bag of chips to eat on the way home and carried in newspaper! no health rules then!!!
      Then to bed and wait for High Green's turn to have the Feast.
      Happy memories. xx

  17. Dear Sandra ,
    Good morning , my dear and good morning to all you special ladies!
    First things first - Jean both of your cards are lovely! I love the shape of the first one and I like cream , I must admit. It makes a really elegant wedding card. The second card is lovely too with great use of the dies! Your flowers are very pretty too. Thanks for sharing these lovely cards with us.
    Now ladies I have a few apologies to make!
    Sheila - I was too slow getting to the door last night and you had gone! I did leave a message. Very sorry. When I said test drive the new chair I didn't mean 3am!! As for the cat tree - like the new word Catalyst - for the cats shopping!!
    When I saw that I thought about a catapult - to deter marauding mice!!
    Brenda - littlelamb - I missed you too , not once but twice! I even asked what you had been up to yesterday! Sorry will try harder.
    Brenda L - missed you too! So sorry left a message for you too.!
    Maria - I completely missed you - but read your message this morning and I was in fits of laughter . Your summary of the day was just so very funny!
    Norah - I did answer the question about Vim and even introduced Ajax! What are we like . Don't really want an answer to that question! When you said you had forgotten where you were going and then oh yes bed! I was off again.
    Margaret - I do hope your lovely little grandson is feeling better today. I know there are underlying problems but hopefully he will be fit and well very soon.
    DONT catch it! The virus that is. Feel free to chase anything else!
    I'd better go as I have lots to do today.
    Love to all,

    Hello Sandra and lovely ladies in the coffee shop,

    Sandra, I hope the girls do well in the mocks, you can only ask them to try their best and not to worry unnecessarily, it's a waste of their energy.

    JEAN I love your card. The wording on the wedding card is it from I die? I really like it, it's not to overpowering.
    The birthday card is beautiful, love the hint of Aqua, it is so delicate. Thank you for shareing
    Sorry I can't remember what else I put in my post. Will have to read back and see if it helps jog my mind .... ,!!!

  19. In for a nice cup of tea and a 5 minute break. Girls weren't grumpy as such!!! But oh boy they just couldn't get out of bed, it transpires they didn't get home from there jumping lesson until late by the time they put the ponies in the field and got in it was 9.30 then they had to eat. Beth telling me " daddy was so cross" well I am sorry there would have been three meals in the bin if it was me!! Not him trying to keep them ok. So they didn't get to bed till very late, so that's why they couldn't get up. Thankfully they have nothing on the cards tonight, so they can chill out and do nothing. Maybe daddy will be home early tonight as well. Oh Tammy just come back, so off to chat to her see you later. Xxxx

    2. Sandra, told dad tonight I was not happy with the situation, and to get the two of them in bed at a reasonable time for their ages. Also I am thankful I won't be in to put them to school tomorrow, as my BP won't take a second day of being raised. He didn't say much, I think he was taken aback by my tone. I let the girls totally chill out after school, I am hoping they get to bed early, they have a friend staying as from tonight for the weekend, so maybe they will get them to bed early so they are out of the way.

    Sorry I was so late in last night. Busy day seeing people. Coffee and lunch with my old pottery group, then calked in the Range. Home and cut some greenery and then to the craft group for the last session. It was painting a small box and decorating it then putting a small flower arrangement in it. They all enjoyed it and bought my friend and I a lovely plant each. They wanted to know when the next session starts so they must have enjoyed themselves. Eventually got home and on here just before 11pm. Today I have made a box for the Golden Wedding Anniversary card for Sunday. Still not happy about going but must.
    Had lunch with an old friend and now here I an busy catching up.
    JEAN. Your cards are really lovely. You are very clever. Love the colours. I especially like the Wedding card. Must try something like this. One thing here we do get plenty of inspiration. No excuse for not making lovely cards.
    Well better have something to eat. I could eat here that would save a lot of messing about. Think I will have a cup of tea and some carrot cake. See you later.

    Let's see how long it takes C&C to send it to me, as Spellbinders say they will get their UK distributor to send one, so I expect it will come from them.

    2. Wow that's really good! I am so pleased about that and I think you will notice a very big difference . For a start you'll have no oily marks but seriously it's much better! Hope it comes soon.
      Well , the forecast for tomorrow is not too bad which is a relief as we are having some people coming for tea in the garden! For the last two years it has ended up being tea in the house at it was extremely wet! So much easier outside and the birds Hoover up afterwards. Garden chairs and tables all washed a ready just need a quick once over in the morning and cushions put out. Cups and saucers on trays and plates and napkins likewise. Sandwiches come courtesy of M&S otherwise it's just too much work. I've made fruit loaves and cakes but have bought a couple of things as well. Strawberries and cream too! When it's all over I just kind of collapse but it's lovely at the time. I need you all to pray for a dry day - even a dry few hours. It's warm enough today . Another day like today would be great.
      I've got lists about lists . My shopping came today instead of Friday so that helped too.
      Hope you all enjoy whatever you have planned for tomorrow.
