Lazy summer days........

Wow has it been hot today... what a scorcher
if I hadn't have been at work I think I would have been taking the ferrets choice of relaxation.
You know I told you hubby was the photographer in our house
well here are a few of the shots he caught today in our garden
I have to say I love the one of the ferret
"not a care in the world"
and it looks like the bumble bee likes the chives
hubby's let flower this year.



Hope tomorrow is as nice as today

What I use its a fabulous buy...

I've been asked recently how to take a photo and what do I use. Well I'm not very good with photos,hubby's better than me and I get him to take a fair few of my pictures,but I did find a bargain.Its the best £1 I have ever spent yes I did say £1 from the pound shop this little tripod fits onto most camera's and if you have a small digital camera its ideal,stops the shakes and wobbles and with a piece of white paper top and bottom you are sorted with your photos

Calamity strikes again...

Oh dear I don't think I will make a very good first aider lol
After sitting through the first couple of hours of explanation's on the respiratory system and how to help a heart attack victim and what signs and symptoms to expect it was the time to get practical with re suss Annie and her children ( re suss dummies adult,child,and baby)
Annie was fine brought back to life no problem as was her child but I'm sorry but the baby wouldn't have survived as I got the choking obstruction stuck in the wrong way and couldn't get it out again it had to be moved with a compass (no forceps available in the venue where the course was held)
Thankfully after the obstruction was put in properly I did it with ease and passed that bit.
I don't know what to expect at the next session as its burns scalds, bleeding and bandages( the mummy comes to mind for that) so I will see if I can pass that bit with no mishaps knowing me anything can happen

Back into the swing of things.....

And its Fathers Day on Sunday yep I forgot I really must get a to do list but still I've got a bit of time to post this one off before my first aid training day the things you have to do lol.

Jazz Man

Urgent card needed yesterday. With all that has been going on I forgot to get this card done so into the shed I went and sat blank for a few mins I forgot how to make a card ooopppps The brief " he likes Jazz" gulp! so after routing through my stash this piano card emerged I had some music peel offs and that was all I was going to glitter the peel offs on acetate but had no time so I had to stick them direct to the card. The cuttlebug music folder came to the rescue for the background and a simple curve on the card stock created the piano A PTI sentiment and it was ready to post off Phew!!!

Bits and Bobs:
Stamps: handwritten notes PTI
Card: white linen ( I found some lol ) black and grey
Inks: black soot distress ink, versafine black

I feel like a new woman.....

....after spending a gorgeous sun and fun filled weekend
with friends. I had a first experience of a reiki session ( very weird) and burnt my finger as well as other parts of me while making a pendant with a melting pot and UTEE.
There was a bit of crafting, a bit of drinking lots of laughter and unfortunately a bit of emergency services being called ( see Jaks Blog),but a fantastic time was had by all and today my good feeling continued when I went and had a new hairdo this was about the best shot hubby could get as I don't like having my photo taken so I just stood still long enough in the garden.
Enjoy the sunshine : )

Oh Im feeling it today.......

Miserable rain, foggy head and groaning belly from eating too much at a chocolate fountain last night well you just have to don't you
I had a lovely evening spent out with the girls at Wing Wah's an all you can eat Chinese restaurant.
It was a fun night and my eyes were bigger than my belly.
So if you in the area of a Wing Wah's just go for the chocolate fountain mind you you might have to fight your way through the kids big ones as well as little ones lol.
Second cup of Coffee is calling
Don't forget to drop back later to see what the DT have been up to

Where does all the week go....

I really can't believe its the weekend already, this week has gone so fast with my shift changes at work I found I was chasing my tail for half of it, at least the sun came back for a bit but could do without the rain though. I have been so busy, Ive had a few awards given me and I will be passing them on to others when I get a few mins, so a quick thank you to those who thought of me.( note to self to find them out of my folder ready for a post )
a HUGE THANKS to Jules for my stamping up package today
I love that I won the little draw and the stamp is gorgeous.
If your wanting to see what Ive been up to check back tomorrow around 2pm and you can see what us DT members have been doing with the new LaPashe release.
