So since last week we've looked after our granddaughters for a day. We went to local shops to a special sweetie shop so they could have some treats for their holidays. I also took them to look at some clothes. BIG MISTAKE !!! They are only 5 and 7 but oh my word they knew what they did/didn't want!! Some things I said, ' no way'. Then Phoebe said she couldn't choose and wanted all seven items. I don't think so!! I said. So we had tears. In the end they chose something and off we went. Asked them where they wanted to go - they said IKEA lol they love lunch there and to play in the creche. So we did that. After the creche they went on a huge trampoline thing. Fastened in with harness and then jump away - looked fun. Then ice cream and balloons and finally the park. Phew were we tired that night. Good fun though. The next night we babysat because my D.I.L. got her Biology GCSE so I suggested they went out to celebrate as my D.I.L. has been struggling a lot of late.
On Friday evening this arrived
My granddaughters Guinea Pigs are in there. We are looking after them for a week while they are away. They are called Chloe and Grace - very cute. I managed to get them out of the cage and outside today. Cleaned them out and then got them back without losing them - :-) phew. All this after having my hair done!! I'll never be a glamorous granny!!!
Saturday was just shopping and crafting and then DH cooked a lovely dinner. On Sunday we went out for a late lunch at a nearby hotel. It's really lovely there and the food is superb. We made it an early Wedding Anniversary celebration. It's not until Thursday but we will have our grandsons staying with us from Wednesday until Sunday so no 'Romantic Meals' for two !! Hahahaha
Yesterday DH discovered a leak in our roof. Oh happy days. So waiting for the roofer to get in touch :-( and of course we've had so much rain!!!!
Anyway I have managed to craft - yippee - so to my desk
This is my actual desk and I have put on here the preps for my next workshop plus everything I used. Got to finish prepping when grandsons go home.
Below the table where I usually craft.
This was for our son and D.I.L. - there Anniversary is today ( I'm writing this on Tuesday )
This speaks for itself.
For my nephew's engagement.
I saw one with this fold today and needed a card really quickly and so made this this evening.
Below I was having a bit of a play making some different sized bags ( part of a challenge in a group I'm in) I haven't finished yet.
Well that's it for now! bet you're relieved if you've got this far :-) I will visit everyone who visits me and those ending with same number - and grandsons permitting a few others :-) x
