Home Again!!!

Well here I am.....home again and feeling like I blinked and missed the holiday. It went by so quickly.
Monday was mostly taken up with travelling and as we couldn't take over the caravan until 4pm the day was pretty much done by the time we got settled.
Tuesday DD and I went off to Graphicus to purchase my birthday present and here's what I came back with............. The two A4 sets of alphabet stamps were an absolute bargain at £6 each and the other stamps have been on my wish list for quite some time so they were snapped up pretty smartish.
Stunningly gorgeous laser cut chipboard by ScrapFX. Some pieces were very expensive but a wonderful treat for using in some art pieces for myself.

Christmas embellishments from K & Co, Tims game spinners and some large clear Dew Drops.

More ink pads to add to my collection.
On the way back we stopped at Rheged and I picked up a couple of cookery books.
Wednesday we went off to Gretna Green as hubby had always wanted to go there. It was a glorious day weatherwise and I sat out in the sunshine while hubby went tasting whisky......yuck. As I sat there a piper started playing and that was it.....he set me off bawling. The sound of the bagpipes has that effect on me unfortunately.
Thursday was my birthday and after a morning visit to Maryport we decided to spend the rest of the day vegging out at the caravan as it was really cold. Don't know when I enjoyed a birthday so much.
We were home by lunchtime yesterday and now we are back into the swing of things with hubby out in the garden and me in the kitchen baking. There was however some very unusual activity in the kitchen this evening........DD decided that she was cooking tea and served up Fajitas which I have never had before. They were absolutely gorgeous and little does she know that whenever I want a night off cooking I shall be asking for them for tea........and she will have to cook as I don't know how to make them....wink,!!!
I've spent some time today doing some inked backgrounds and will hopefully get chance to do some stamping tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by.

  2. Hi Sheila, I've just come back from visiting Graphicus two days on the trot for the Birthday celebrations!

    Glad you enjoyed your visit and had a lovely holiday and birthday AND I SAW YOUR CARD ON THE COUNTER! It was the first thing to be seen as we walked through the door and Jo and I recognised it immediately.
