This and That

I didn't make WOYWW this week- too much going on and wanted to spend time with DH this week as he was left to his own devices a bit last week. I was very busy making final preparations for my All Day Craft Class. I was also busy trying to get an outfit sorted ready for a wedding we are attending soon.
Last Wednesday I went out with three friends for a dinner at Plough and Harrow.

Yummy and great company - and because I had a birthday I got a free bottle of champagne which we all enjoyed.

The class went really well - my friend Marion put together a wonderful lunch - I forgot to photograph it all :-(

There were eight ladies all together and they all managed to finish !!

They made a Stationery Chest

Inside were cards,notelets,tags, altered notebook,gift card holder,pen,paperclip/bookmark.
Goody Bags for the ladies.
looks like I will be doing it all again as there are four ladies who missed it and want to do it :-)

On Monday we spent time in the garden - I do find it a lot more difficult now but did manage a bit.

This week I didn't get to Sugar Craft as I had am appointment for a mammogram :-( - routine check up.
Afterwards DH and I went shopping. Sat outdoors enjoying our lunch followed by an ice cream delicious.
Yesterday had my hair done and then DH and I had a gentle stroll to local pub for tea - really enjoyed it.
Today I've been making a card for youngest son for his birthday next week - need to make DH one there birthday's are a day apart. Also made the wedding card and a gift holder.

Back soon . x


  1. What a fun class you gave! It looks like everyone had a good time and making a stationery box is a clever idea. Sounds like all is going very well in your life.. good to hear. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Hi Anne,
    So glad you and your ladies enjoyed the card chest.

  3. You've had a very busy week. Good to hear that there are more ladies wanting to take your class x

  4. What a lovely day you had, Anne, and in such a lovely place too! You have had a busy time! Thank you for your sweet comment on my Gutless Bag Lady blog and you have NO NEED to feel ashamed at all - these things are relative! I got myself in a terrible state before I went into hospital because I couldn't find my lightweight dressing gown since the house move, and even lost sleep over this - my hubby said to me, "Oh for goodness sake, why don't you just buy another one?!!" Duh...

    I have also just had my routine mammogram too! I was quite worried about it because of my recent bowel cancer diagnosis, and also in view of the fact I was called back for a biopsy at the last one 3 years ago - it turned out to be a benign fibrous cyst. This time they said they'd be keeping an eye on it and would call me back if it had changed, but so far so good - hopefully all is well! These things are naturally a worry, aren't they.

    Thank you soooo much for your continuing prayers! You can have no idea how important the prayers of my many friends are to me - I recently discovered that prayer has gone up for me from 6 of the 7 continents of the world (unless there's an Emperor penguin with me on his prayer list, it's doubtful there's anyone praying in Antarctica lol!) - I have been carried along by a tide of answered prayer and can find no other explanation for how well I have coped generally with the last 4 months!

    There are bound to be blips along the way, and just when I thought this whole thing would be a doddle, my stomach changed shape and the stoma started shrinking and changing shape, and suddenly things didn't work properly any more, and I totally lost the plot!! Another appointment tomorrow a.m. at the stoma clinic. They are keeping a good eye on me and I can't wait for everything to settle down sufficiently for me to have a regular home delivery supply set up, and to actually know what I am doing!!!

    One day I shall get back to WOYWW!! There's nothing on my workdesk atm except dust.

  5. Great post, Anne! Thanks for sharing the photos of the class! It looks like a fun and productive time was had by all!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  6. You did have a busy week, Anne. Belated birthday greetings to you - sorry I missed it. Your class looks like fun and I love the stationery chest and contents. Hope you and hubby have enjoyed this week so far :) Elizabeth xx
