I hope that you are all well and looking forward to the weekend, not much different to every day I know but we have to appreciate the small things!
The weather is supposed to be warmer too which is a huge bonus, I have a new found excitement to get out in the garden, I think it's because I know how much Paul enjoys it and as he doesn't really have any 'hobbies' any more I like to encourage him to do more of the one thing that he really enjoys (if that makes sense). So that's what we hope to do.
Yesterday was spent mostly in the kitchen with the girls, after sowing some more Sweetcorn seeds (as the last ones haven't appeared (probably Paul using older seeds) in the morning and having a quick brunch with Paul, Lucy came down and wanted to bake Some Coconut/Oat/raisin/Banana and seed Breakfast Bars, which turned out really nicely, they are yummy but you need a drink with them! The second thing she baked where Gooey Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownies, which were absolutely 😋 yummy! You bake them in an 8 x 8 square tin and they are supposed to serve 16!!!!! Absolute nonsense, I would say 9 at the most, we had them warm with Vanilla Icecream for pudding.
Your Next Challenge
For your next challege I would like you to create Cards or Projects featuring 'Circles'.......
I have shared a few samples above of different cards that I have made over the years that feature Circles in some form.
You can use......
A Circle card base
A Circle Aperture
Feature a Circular object on your card/project
You can use Circular embellisments
Your Background can be made using the 'Bokeh' technique (see last two cards (last one is Karen's ))
So there are lots of options for you to choose, all I ask is that you HAVE FUN !
As I am writng this it's approaching 8pm so we are about to go and show our appreciation to ALL Keyworkers, my husband included (not that he would want or expect any praise of thanks), I am hugely proud of him however.
He is super frustrated at the moment as they are changing the Shift Times to get an extra 1/2 out of the workers, the way they have done this is to cut the 1 hour safety cleaning time, where the cleaners come in and deep clean everywhere between shifts, to ensure no cross contamination, they are cutting it down to 15 Minutes !!! The other key concern is that staff will overlap as the shifts change over (where they had an hour to clear the building before) So people will be passing on the stairs etc, which they put a stop to right at the beginning of the pandemic to make sure if was totally safe environment for staff to continue working. I think it's a bloody disgrace, my anxiety will be even worse from Monday, although Paul has said that he intends to leave just before shift end so that he is clear of the building before the next shift arrive. RANT OVER!!!
I hope that all of you enjoy the rest of your day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
