Randomness that I will miss by not going to Edinburgh this year

Nothing crafty going on in my world

at the moment, oh no, no, no, far too busy for that I’m afraid – and the recent weather hasn’t helped much recently either.

To make up for it I have got some things that I am very excited about,:-

  • A rather fantastic piece of equipment is soon to be purchas.
  • Edinburh Fringe is about to start (whilst I won’t be able to actually present) there should be loads of podcasts and listen again bits of randomness to keep me off the streets.
  • My Honey’s birthday on Friday.
  • 2 and a bit weeks til our cruise – compensation for not being able to go to Edinburgh

Last week I had a nice chat to one of the Grey Maffia Ladies What Lunch Brigade, and she was telling me that every year without fail she goes up for the Festival, therefore I have mentally promised myself that next year we will go, no matter what (as Toodles will be older we can take her too)!

here’s a bit of my recent inpsiration.

This is a fridge magnet that Toodles bought me when she was little.  He hangs around on my fridge, and I absolutely love him.

One of the cards from last week’s Stamp Camp with Caz

we had an ace time, and this is one of the projects from last weekend.

It used the SU Roses in Winter set, which in my opinion the catalogue does absolutely nothing for.  I’d passed over it so many times in there, and yet when I saw examples of it, my mind was changed and I’ve ordered a copy.  Also ordered the Un-Forgettable set as well.

It’s been another busy old week at work, and also had a few bits and bobs to do (very secret squirrel, but getting there with the project, and will hopefully I can talk more about it soon).

Last weekend we bought Guy a bike in readiness for his birthday, and tonight the three of us ventured down to Haysden Country Park and had an absolutely ace ride – completely precious time with our Daughter, which I’m beginning to realise just can’t be got back (not really sure where the last 10 and half year have disappeared to).  Normally though, when it’s just Toodles and I, the ride is good fun but not what you could ever describe as high energy.  If you throw her Father into the mix then it gets all extremely high energy  between the two of them.  Why are men so competitive?

Toodles and Binks

I can’t say much, but keep an eye out at Toodles & Binks Blog for news over the coming weeks that is really very exciting.

I’m off in a short while to Caz’s SU Stamp Camp, fingers crossed that the weather is going to hold up, otherwise we will be in for a soaking as it’s in the garden!

Ohh, and happy anniversary to my Honey, we’ve been married 11 years today – sorry, I didn’t have time to make you a card yet, but you know I haven’t forgotten.

Just to prove I can still do arty.  Here’s the Charm to go with yesterday’s page.  I wonder now if I should have done an arty page to go with it?
