I think two posts in two days is a first for me!
I had an appointment with my GP and a hospital appointment to attend today, but didn't I say yesterday that snow can't half scupper your plans - and you know what they say about speaking too soon...me and my big mouth... I couldn't get the car off the drive this morning and I had to ring in to cancel the appointments. Of course I took the opportunity to...... PLAY in my adopted room!
I've outgrown the little bedroom I used to work in, so when Dad gave me this larger table after we had moved half of our belongings up to Durham, (including the bed from this room) I decided to stake a claim on it! I put the table in front of the large window for lots of lovely natural light, you can see that boxes of things are starting to creep in, but for now I am walking between the two rooms to get what I need, then I take it back (or not as you can see!) I'm even using a linen basket as a side table!
It would be nice if Ann's husband Maurice took pity on me and made me a side table cum storage area like the one he made for Ann! Or if I had Shelley's THREE massive IKEA expedit storage units....In my dreams.
This is the street view now outside my door, and I feel frustrated that I haven't been able to keep my appointments - if they had been afternoon one's I would have gone, but it was really snowing at 8 o clock this morning when I had to make the decision to go or not - Andy had just 'phoned me (he's in Durham) to say it was snowing like a blizzard and lightening at the same time up there! Crazy weather.
Now I've got to wait for more appointments AND make the trip back down here to attend them. GRRRR.
Ok, moan over, I did have a happy couple of hours playing... preparing the December page for Kate's 365 Calendar Challenge
I decided a blue background would suit the chilly weather... I used the Dylusions tree stamp (above) and lovely holly images from collage anonymous (below)
I'm using old bits of 7Gypsies 'sushi' papers and also Blonde Moments 'Suet Pudding' range for the journal blocks
I used a Magenta alphabet font for the 'December' title. Nothing is stuck down yet but I'm happy with how its coming along so far....
Oh... and here is my lovely tree - complete with lights but no baubles - note to my girls...are the memories calling you? "Come home to help Mum..." (The prickly boring bit is done!) hehehe!
If I keep this up, I might see you tomorrow....
