Time is whizzing along, so much going on.. its been hectic.
Right then…. Big news is Mr T has now retired…. YAY!!
He had a retirement do on Saturday for his work mates… Had a nice turn out of old and current guys (some are already retired). It was a good night I went along too, had a few bevvies with the guys.
We had some sadness too last week with his cousin sadly passing away and her funeral was on Thursday…. The Big C strikes again 😢 she was the same age as me!
He also got his ticket for the Plymouth game…. Yes footie!!😕 But we are going down there for the weekend…. No point without his ticket…. That’s on 9th March so I need to get browsing to see what I can do with my time while he and the others go to the game…. We’re not alone down there friends will be gathered as well!!
That was last week now for this week….
So here for some really good news we finally got his pension through so that’s fantastic…. I will get my kitchen…. HOORAY!!!!!
More on that when that starts happening, when the spring/summer properly arrives…. Its lovely weather here right now but don’t know how long that will last… Enjoy it while we have it! 😁😁😁🌞🌞🌞 Hope it will be like this for Plymouth!!
So busy on these and other things that I’ve not got much crafting done tbh. Cut out some tags with my new tag punch for the decorative tops to them. (birthday pressie)
I needed 2 tags for the Challenge on Tracie Fox’s group The Foxy Crafter’s on Fb. Still need to get that done…. Will try and video it but not sure how well I’ll do 🤞🏻
I also have a swap I need to do on a Spring theme in one of my other FB groups but as it’s suppose to be a surprise for the recipient I can’t divulge that just now.
I have, however, started working on a journal for me so I can show you some of that as I go along….
Here’s the papers so far….
Steampunk is in 2 colours as you might notice… One of my printer colours had run out and I got these lovely pinky/purple pages so might create something using those. Then I will sort out a full on steampunk journal at a later date…. 😁
Billie (#1daughter) has been home from uni this weekend just gone, as she’s not been feeling too good. But I was chatting with her and told her I wanted to make her a journal, she seemed pleased with that so we discussed what she would like and Tolkien was at the top of the list along with a nature/woodland theme too, especially with foxes in it!! She loves foxes!!! Her last project at the end of last year was a fox..🦊
So my journal list is getting ever longer!!!
One of these journals is for my journal ideas and one for my lists I like to constantly make…. Plus current things to do with the house and plans we need to make for the future… Like holidays and my kitchen and other stuff generally!!
Like I said…. The list is getting ever longer!!! Ha ha 😂😂😂
So here are some plans for now, I bought a few new bits of kit for my videoing endeavours I plan on…. I really need to clear my dining table as I want to use it as a desk for now….
Here is a new light which slots onto the new phone holding contraption this will then fit onto my tripod so I can record videos on my phone. I can use it as a handheld vlogging type device too. It’s to help with keeping it steady while holding it in front of you, not sure if that will happen for me but my idea is that these bits all help with my videoing for the time being.
Not sure if one light will be enough so I’m going to try it out on a book and birthday haul so I will see how it goes for now.
That’s all I have for you… I will try and keep up with my blogging but theres so much enjoyment to be had now we are both retired….
Oh and I’m off to Stamperama on Sunday so there could be another video haul to come as well…. 😂😂
Catch you next time
