and apart from cooking breakfast this morning, and dinner tonight, have been in my PJ’s all day surfing the net from Guy’s laptop by the log burner……….oh you lazy cow, I hear you all cry!
True, it cannot be denied, but after another frenetic week at work, and then dash to London yesterday afternoon, I’m all in.
Mum and I had lunch at a lovely Bistro and wander round Covent Garden, then tootled off to see Fat Pig at the Trafalgar Studio in Whitehall – I mentioned it last month, it was a play with the lovely Robert Webb. Actually, it was good, and became even better when they lost the terrible American accents about halfway through. Rob (who is the other half of Mitchell & Webb) was wonderful, in fact I think up until now I have very much under-appreciated his talent (no secret that I prefer David Mitchell of the two). He has the cutest habit of rubbing his eye, which is soooooooo adorable!
It was good to see that Krish Marshall (My Family & BT ad fame) had made a recovery from his recent accident, and was truly amusing.
All in all, it was a wonderful bit of entertainment, and I’d anyone who got the chance to go and see it.
More theatre going on Monday, we’re off to see Cats in Canterbury.
Actually, I’ve digressed from the original line my post was going to take – during our sojourn around Covent Garden we happened upon a fabbie handmade soap stall, with the most delish items for sale – in fact, I could kick myself that we didn’t actually buy anything.
So, laying in bed this morning, it occurred – I’m crafty, and just how difficult could soap making be ……….. these could be famous last words I expect ………. I think I’ll give it a try.
Hence the surfing reference at the top of the post. I’ve been soap making surfing, and found some great sites, both selling and blogging about the stuff. Oh….my…..god….. some of the soaps they make are AMAZING, and I want a piece of the action.
I found a great forum site, with very helpful gals – really I was just trying to find a course to get me started – and they advised that they just read a book to get going. So, in my usual overkill fashion, I’ve just splurged………..can you use the word splurge for £16.97? …..on three books from Amazon. With the free shipping option, and a following wind, they should be here by mid-week, and I can do a bit of reading up. Obviously, a bit of retail therapy will be required to kit myself out.
Really, just from surfing today, I have picked up quite a bit of info, and just need to be a bit brave and give it a whirl.
A highpoint of today was a visit from my bestest friend, Di – towing along with her my Goddaughter and the wee Oliver – who by the way, is doing so well. It was great to see them, and have a nice chin wag.
Righto, I need to close this laptop down, and head off to bedfordshire.
