Brown/Blue Spotty

25 March 2011

Look what arrived at my house!

I found it when I called home briefly after work yesterday before meeting friends for dinner ~ I knew what it was but still had to open the envelope to check.
It's absolutely beautiful, filled with gorgeous projects ~  not one that I don't like ~ how can I resist making a start on something!
Thanks to Sally for the advice on where to order ~ She pointed me in the direction of Anita's Little Stitches and what fabulous service.  Ordered Thursday last week and arrived yesterday.

Dinner was a chance to catch up with some old work colleagues, unfortunately one could not make it.  We had a lovely meal at Zizzi's in the Metro Centre, it was great to catch up on their news.  We all worked for the same company a couple of years ago.  It has been refreshing to hear that they, like me, feel that even though we are in temporary contracts it has been a very uplifting experience to break free of employment that was a bit oppressive.

We have plans for the weekend ~ LM and I are going to the Living North Live tomorrow, we've been to the Living North Christmas Fair for several years now but this will be our first visit to the Spring Fair and we're looking forward to it. GB1 and a friend are off to see the X Factor Live Tour at the Newcastle Arena ~ excited just doesn't come into it!  GB2 will no doubt just be doing the teenage thing!
LM also has a TVR Car Club run on Sunday ~ I'm not sure if I will be going yet as I have a wee backlog of housey jobs that I would like to clear before the start of next week.
I shall leave you with a picture if our goldfinches feeding on the thistle seed ~ aren't they gorgeous.  Only managed to catch three of them this time, we can have up to eight at times.  There was also a blue tit who was obviously camera shy as he's gone!  Not sure if the lovely spring weather we have had is going to hold out for the weekend ~ I hope so.  Enjoy your weekend!

So glad you got the BBD book Kate. I knew you wouldn't be disppointed in it. Anita is fantastic to deal with. I love ordering from her.

Have a lovely weekend:)

Not sure if I should thank you or not. I just left Anita's site. Oh well it's only money.

Looks like the birdies are having a good feed. Enjoy the LN Fair, didn't realise they did a Spring one.
