Hello..... well, well, well..... what about the weather???

It's as warm as July isn't it?? 

I can't believe how beautiful it is, I just don't want it to end!

It's that time of year when you look in the garden & notice how messy it looks :(

This was after I started cutting back the bushes at the back of my garden. I HATE ivy!!! It's grows really fast & it's dirty.... yuk!

I've invested in a shredder this year & it works a treat...... I love it!!!
I now have a very large pile of ivy to shred on my next day off!

Hopefully the next time you see my garden it will be lovely!!!
(fingers crossed!)

During the winter months I cover my salad bed with a piece of wood

Can you spot Ted??

As you can see this is a sunny spot & one which Ted loves to sunbath in.

But all good things must come to a end & the wood needed to go so the soil can see the sun!

Someone is not happy?

So that's been my last few days off..... no resting for me!!

Blood test update: All clear which is good but doesn't explain why I keep having dizzy spells & nearly falling over.

Enjoy the sun while it lasts!

Grease....... is the word!!!

It was such along time ago but I wanted to share with you our photo's of a top night out...

Getting ready

Helen on stage for the fancy dress judging

Beauty School Dropout

Guess what we had to do???

Put a paper bag on our head....... but we all did it!!

Me & Helen

I wasn't dressed up as much as I hoped...... I worked all day, rushed to the train station, ran to the theatre, had a jacket potato which left under 10 mins to change in a very small, very busy toilet!

If it comes to a town near you do go it's so much fun!

Have a great weekend

Happy St Patricks Day

To you all!

What plans do you have this weekend??

I can't believe my 2 weeks holiday is nearly over...... only 2 days to go :(

We celebrated St Patrick's Day yesterday while watching the last day of Cheltenham & the gold cup.

The good news is this year I only lost 50p with the bookies!!!
That's the best Cheltenham I've had for years...... a weeks entertainment for 50p..... can't be bad!

I'll be in a mad panic for the last 2 days doing all the things I should've done in my 2 weeks holiday!

Busy week next week...... a interview for a new job (I've found out my job will finish in September as planned) & a visit to the doctors to get my blood test results. I've been feeling out of sorts for a while & keep having dizzy turns..... I went to the doctors & told her the symptoms, before I knew it I was rushed in to have blood taken! Hope it's nothing to serious :(

I will be back with Grease photo's..... it's been a while now!!!

Have a good weekend

PS Hope you like my updated blog...... boy did I regret making the changes yesterday when everything went wrong!!! But a change is as good as a rest!

what a success!!!

This was the 3rd Crikey fair & they're just getting bigger & better thanks to the fantastic lady that organises them.

It's not like any other vintage fair I've been too, there's loads going on...... fashion shows, tattoo parlour, pop up beauty salon, vintage sellers & handmade vintage inspired sellers!!

Plus entertainment!

All in all it means people stick around all day....... it's a lovely social event & I look forward to catching up with everyone.

I had a friend helping this time so I was able to have a dash around but blimey it was busy!!!

My knitted goodies!

Cats & bears!


Hand knitted jumpers

I displayed them on a wooden clothes horse my dad made back in 1952!!! 
He found it in nan's attic & was thinking of throwing it out..... heavens above!
I could've sold this easy!

My best sellers

You can find more of my goodies here..... look out for some vintage & Jubilee lines coming soon
And you can find more pictures from Crikey here

I will be back soon to show you photo's from Singalonga Grease

Off to put my bets on for Cheltenham..... wish me luck!

Busy, Busy......

Sorry I haven't been about much of late....... it's been a busy week!
Even though I've been off from work I've been busy getting ready for the vintage fair tomorrow.

If you live near do pop in & say hello :)

It's the 3rd Crikey & they're getting better every time...... I don't bother doing any other. 
You can read about November's fair here.

Please remind me on Sunday to get making for the June one..... I always leave it until the last minute :(

Back soon

That's February over with!!

It's starting to feel like spring isn't it?? 
February was a busy month with 2 Make, Do and Mend meetings..... Yarn bombing......Cupcake making..... Being asked to help organise the Exeter Blitz remembrance day in May (so excited!!) being hooked on Pinterest and lots, lots more!

Only 4 more days until my first break in 5 months....... I need it!!!

But first me & my lovely friend Helen are off to Torquay on Friday for 
Sing-a-long-a Grease!!!
We booked in December thinking it was a long time away..... now it's tomorrow!!!

I have my outfit all sorted, the worrying thing is..... it's all my own clothes, no need for fancy dress for me! The only thing I brought was a very cheap Pink Lady jacket & some lovely red glasses.
I'll let you know how it goes!
