The above pictures were taken by a professional photographer...... can't you tell???...lol!!!
She's a friend of mine & offered to do these free of charge..... look great don't they??
When she emailed them to me I couldn't believe that I made them...... I would love to be able to afford to have all my things photographed by her but sadly funds don't allow.
Back to normal.......
These photo's are really bad....sorry..... I forgot to take a photo to show you so ended up taking theses at work a few minutes before wrapping them up.
They're Penny's birthday gifts.
I was pleased with the slide & already I've been asked to make some more.
So Friday night saw us head to the pub to celebrate Penny's special day, the pub she choose has a lovely big garden right beside the old city wall...... it's a great pub but one of the most expensive in town, I don't think the service is up to much either but the chips are great!!!!
Saturday saw yet another early start at work for the final day..... I love the last day feeling but hate sorting out last minute things & leaving handovers etc. I also had lots of staffing issues that meant sitting down & telling people off....hate that :(
I was supposed to finish at 4.30 but ended up leaving late as always ..... I ran to the craft fair.....
No photo's you'll be pleased to hear!!!
See Sal's post for some great photo's.
I didn't buy anything & was a bit disappointed, I did like the berets & the Russian doll corsages but I thought the lady was rude....... I said hello as I walked into her tent but she looked at me as if I was crazy...... none of my hard earned money for you Mrs!!!
Then it was a dash to my friends to get changed & then off we went to here.......
To see The Beat......
How was it????? FANTASTIC!!!!!!!
It wasn't very busy which was a shame but once they came on we realized it was a good thing as there was loads of room to dance!!!
I went with my friend Charlie....(Liv's mum)..... we've known it each for about 25 years so it was just like the old school disco days!!! I did say I wasn't going to dance as I'm too old & a little bit too tubby but once they started you couldn't sit still!!!!
I did get home early which for us oldies is a good thing, I was worn out for working since before 8am, standing all day, rushing about & then finishing it off with 2 hours of dancing to ska music.... result Pat Butcher feet....lol!!!!
Out again all day Sunday so I was glad of the rest yesterday & had a really lazy day..... didn't enjoy the storm in the afternoon........ & the rain....well that was something else, my kitchen got a bit wet as I'd left the back door open..... fool!!!
I've been asked to have a stall at Liv's school fete.....aaarrrr..... not sure I'm ready for that!!!
I've been thinking about doing it for at least a year but I'm happy just to think about it!!!
They asked how much stock I had ........ NONE!!! so with just 4 weeks to go I better get moving!!
I also have to make another 10 corsage for a local shop before I go back to work next week.
Yesterday was a list day..... I love making lists..... getting myself sorted, ordering things I need etc ...and today??? I just need to get on with it before the week rushes by.
Birthday challenge update: Not great, I've been up & down so much that I'm now back to the weight I was when I started...... so much for dancing to keep you fit!!!
