Cooo where to start ... well we got over on Sunday to see my dad and we had a fab time .. the sun shone and although a wee bit windy in places it was mostly warm thank goodness ...
we went to Lytham first of all for a walk round the shops and then we moved on to the South Pier at Blackpool as DD2 wanted to go on the amusement slot machines ... we always saved our 2p's when they were younger to go on the one armed bandits .. we watched some mad fools go up on a trapezium thing to be swung over the pier and also some more mad fools go on a seat that catapulted you up into the air ..... that was really scary to watch (photos to follow) considering it was almost the hight of the season the beach was actually empty .. I remember days when you couldn't move for folks being on there ... boy that is showing my age hehehehehe .....
We went on into South Shore to the wonderful ice cream parlour there .. can't remember how to spell the name as its Italian ... but suffice to say get a tissue ready for the photo of my" Norries mess "...... I know I am not supposed to have ice cream and cream etc but sometimes the pain has to be worth it !!!!!!
The drive home was uneventful and we arrived safely back at the mouse house around 10ish at night ....
My test piece arrived safely at its destination and Lady P loves it PHEWWWW ..lol so here's to a long and lovely stitching time together :)
I finished the Needlework shop on Wednesday so 12 down and 3 to go yipppeeee .... my order from 123 stitch should be here any day soon too ... I am stalking the postie every day ..lol
brb just going to re pop the kettle on ......
AHHHHH that's better a lovely cuppa .. any one want a biscuit to dunk ????
Thursday DD 1 and I went to the midnight showing of HARRY POTTER in 3D and wow we weren't disappointed... we set off early as we thought there was going to be a huge queue and got there in record time ..lol ... and because we were seeing it in 3D we got let into the cinema early so had time to pick our seats and watch every one come in .. some were dressed up and it was a really nice house to sit and watch the film in .... I won't spoil any ones surprise if they haven't seen it yet but take some tissues ..lol ... its the last film ever heheheh
Had my acupuncture on Friday which was a good thing as this week end was the ISHW or international stitch and hermit weekend hosted by ....http://joysze.blogspot.com/....... and boy did I manage to actually hermit and stitch heheheh
Saturday I finished parts 9 and 14 of the Romantique SAL by magicaspuntadas.blogspot.com and have posted my photo off to her already so I can sit back and get one with the thousand and one other stitching bits I need to do hehehehe (there is a charting error in part 9 the second rose up .. leaf on the right hand side is wrong) ... please note I didn't find out till it was too late and I wasn't going to frog so nerrrr ..lol....... that night I did a wee bit more on the Poinsettia house by LHN :)
Are you still with me ???
