Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been blogging recently. To be honest I am not sure what I am doing , it is all hit and miss with me. My blog looks a shambles and I need to spend time to learn how to get it right. I really must try to organise myself with it. Everyone elses blogs are brilliant. Where am I going wrong???? I promise I will look into it!! Love Sue xx

It's Monday!!!

A Chateau we visited My sister's garden.
Part of a little village

Well Monday morning and the builders are due back!!! The tiles for the floor are finally here. I've got used to the place to myself again after the builders being here for such a long time so I suppose I will feel a bit invaded later on!!

We had a lovely time at my sister's in France even though it was a short visit. We are looking forward to the Spring when we will probably have another few days over there.

The pics are just random views.

Hoping to get back to card making later on today after I have have tidied up and been to the shops and oh yes! walked Jack the Russel for my neighbour.Bye for now!

Hi again!! I sat up until midnight last night trying to put my Flikr photostream on my blog!!!! I tried the help pages and sort of realised what I should do but it still wouldn't work. Obviously I am still doing something wrong. My blog looks a mess . Half the time it is just hit and miss with me unless I am just typing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a dull rainy day it is. Oh well, I'll just have to sit and make cards!!!!! YESSSSS!I did promise myself I would sort the front garden out this week but hopefully I can craft with a clear conscience!!!he he!!
The dog saga goes on. I am still walking him every day and I really enjoy it but it is valuable crafting time!!!!Mind you it is helping to keep me fit and relatively slim!!!!!!!! My neighbour told me that about a week ago she thought she had managed to rehouse the dog as she was on a waiting list for dog rehousing.(?). Anyway, it turned out the lady also had a cat and my neighbour couldn't honestly say that Jack the Russell was ok with cats. So the walk goes on..and on...and on..........
Bob and I are off to my sister's in France very soon so I am really looking forward to it. Anne, my sister always wanted to move to France and she always said that when our lovely mum died she would go. Anyway, brave people that they are they sold their lovely house that theey had built up from nothing and kept it like the original house that was there and lived in a caravan whilst they did it. It was beautiful!!! Well, off they went to France and did vertually the same but lived in the old cottage as they did it up. Now they have sold that and moved to another bigger house which didn't need too much doing to it and that is where we are going to stay!!!!!!! Can't wait!!!!I have never been to France before!!!! Will post pics on my return!!
Well, better do a bit of housework now before the card making takes over. Sue xx

Well I really enjoyed the Craft Fair at The Floral Hall in Southport today. I got up at 6 (middle of the night to me) and we set off about 7.45. It was a good drive there but once we were on the prom we couldn't find the venue. After a lot of asking around we eventually saw 'Craft Fair' signs which must have been put out late. We were still in plenty of time though. Bob helped me take all my stuff in and I set up. The lady had given me an 8 foot table and my cloth wouldn't fit so a nice young lad who worked there brought me two lovely white cloths and we put them together so in the end my table looked quite nice. I did take a couple of pics and will post them probably tomorrow.

There were three other card sellers and three tables selling card making stuff and some of their own cards. In spite of this I did really well and had had lots of lovely compliments!!! (The compliments are worth a fortune). One lady said that they were the nicest cards she had ever seen and she made some herself but bought a lot from me!!! Bob said she'll probably go home and put her hand made labels over mine!!!! he he!! She was lovely. There was a lovely lady behind me selling nappy cakes and we got on really well and had a giggle.

All in ll it was a really nice day and because I sold quite a lot of cards it did my ego the world of good because the fist Crasft Fair I did I didn't sell much at all but then neither did anyone else. I am so tired zzzzzzzzzz that I think it will be an early night for me!!!!! Sue xx
