Ten Years!!!

Well I can't believe that I am saying this but......today I have been blogging for ten years....wow........Where did that time go?
When I first started the content was a little different as a lot of my posts were geared towards cardmaking and papercrafts mixed in with a bit of everyday life and now it is mostly everyday life with a bit of crafts thrown in when I manage to do any.
How things change.
I miss my cardmaking but what I don't miss is the stress of deadlines and things like sitting up for two days without sleep to replace a box of samples that got lost on it's way to Create and Craft for a show I was doing........only to find that they had turned up when I got there for filming.
All part of life's rich tapestry....ha, ha, ha.

Anyhoo.....fast forward to today and there is yet more decluttering and cooking.....Ruby has requested chicken pie for tea tomorrow so I will make the filling ready for that and I am making bean salad for DD's lunches. I've soaked a whole bag of mixed beans which will be cooked, divided up and frozen to be pulled out and mixed with a low fat vinaigrette when she fancies taking some....and I'll be multitasking along the way with laundry.
Tea tonight will be a quick mixed grill and that will be my housewifely duties done for the day.

Andy has just phoned....his first appointment of the week seems to have gone well at the clinic in the little town. The most important one is Thursday at Derby hospital and we have everything crossed for that one.

It's cold and damp here this morning and I desperately want a coffee but I'll wait until Andy gets back with the papers.
Apparently it is going to get colder and we are going to be getting some snow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hope you are keeping warm.

  3. I have watched a few episodes but not recently. I never watched the card making as glue and I do not mix well. You would be amazed at how far I could spread a drop of it, with very little where it should be.

  6. Demonstrating for Create & Craft sounds really exciting, how did you get into that if you don't mind me asking.

    Congratulations on blogging for 10 years. I'll be 4 years old in May so just a nipper by your standards, but even so I don't know where my years have gone either!

    Very glad to hear Andy's appointment went well. Fingers crossed for Thursday. xx

    1. Hey Suzanne....I met the new owners of the stamp company Rubbadubbadoo at a trade show. I was already working with their stamps (teaching classes etc) and told them how much I liked them. They asked me to submit some samples of my work just for use on their website but then they asked me to demo on Create and Craft for them. I did it for just over twelve months. It was very hard work but I loved it-x-

    1. Oooooh Marco Pierre White....he definitely gives me trouble with me knees....love him.
      Why did your mother in law have to go shoe shopping for Sean Penn? Do tell.
      I wouldn't say I had been famous...just fairly well known in the craft world. I used to do a lot of demoing for the craft shop in Totnes-x-
