Wow, it's flaming June already.
And flaming Friday.
So here's my list when I stop, look at my week and make note of the things that have been good.
Half Term holiday.
We've just been chillin'.

So what have we done this week?
We've had friends here, we have met up with friends, and we've been going to friends houses.
Luke had an interview at the college where he'll be learning how to be a barber, and came home with a list of required equipment which adds up to over £200. How is that right for an apprentice who is only earning £30 a week
from his Saturday job?
I took Luke, Hope and Hope's friend Tabby to see the
new X-Men film.
Films about mutants aren't generally my thing
but the kids really enjoyed it.
'Erik' (Michael Fassbender), however,
was quite pleasant to watch,
and I'm not often attracted to men
wearing capes and helmets.
But of course, this all pales into insignificance
because you know what's happening tomorrow, don't you?

Mmmm, DT in a uniform.
Hope and I are going to have a girlie mooch round Covent Garden (she's got her eye on a bikini in Cath Kidston), have a trolley dash round Blade Rubber, a bit of lunch and
then we'll go to the theatre.
I think we'll do the hanging around the stage door
thing afterwards too.
You never know, we might get some autographs.
Do you remember the ATC swap I did with Kristin,
when I thought my ATC's had gone missing en route and
then they turned up 6 weeks later?
Well, Kristin's arrived this week having been returned
to her once because the packaging had
mysteriously come undone.
Funny how often packaging of interesting looking
things comes undone, isn't it?!
I love the fabric ATC 'envelope' she made.
Her ATC's (we had the themes of 'Women' and 'Travel') are lovely and I'm so glad they finally got here.
Thank you, Kristin!
I have been really enjoying doing my 'Journey of You' art journal (class button on sidebar), which is fun. I can already see how I'd like to develop this but I'll continue these
pages as per the course
before starting on the new style.
I have also just started the new
Composition in Collage Claudine Hellmuth course.
I love her style but have no ambitions to copy
what she does, just learn from her.
I've got homework to do and I'm going to
make a start on that tonight.
I'm also keen to have a go with my new Lumiere paints
bought online this week.
Lenna uses them to great effect (skip over to her site by clicking on her name, she is so wonderfully creative) so I thought I'd have a go too.
Sunny wishes to you all this weekend.
I'll post this Virginia at Celtic House and visit the
other Rockin' chicks later.
