Darcy's Postcard Challenge
is at the end of this post.
What's been good for me this week?
What's made my week 'rock'?
Half term holiday,
in which I've....
*had a trip to London with DD Hope,
going to the David Hockney exhibition.
*trolley dashed round Hobbycraft
(why does Hope see the empty basket/trolley
as a challenge?!).
|(I just had to buy this little army of chickies, didn't I?)|
*bought Hope walking boots for her
Duke of Edinburgh hike
(and they actually weren't quite as
expensive as I was fearing,
although they cost enough, believe me).
*enjoyed time together
doing not much
(isn't that the best time?).
A sweet understated event for us;
a cosy Marks and Spencer meal for 2
exchange of cards
and then all 4 of us watching
Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
Oh my goodness,
the palm tree and pineapple dresses!
Grant really appreciated the heaps of
heart shaped confetti I sneaked into his
bag of breakfast pain au chocolats,
which he opened and then scattered in front
of a team of big roughty-toughty police officers!
My beautiful bracelet from Grant
arrived today and,
just like in Cinderella,
I'm happy to have signed up for the
free 6x4 swap being run by the
Sketchbook Project people,
The email came out about it,
I thought about it for an hour or so,
went back to sign up

out of 1000 available slots.
It's full up now, so I'm glad I didn't
think about it any longer.

I've tidied up my
It was a MAJOR job
and it meant that while I was tidying
I couldn't be arting
but it NEEDED to be done.
I present you with a 360 degree view
of my arting area....
(and remember, these are the AFTER photos!)
It may look chaotic,
but I now know where everything is!

bunting for Christmas :o)
I'll go and post this with Virginia.

Darcy's Postcard Challenge this week is
the land of music -
Tom Jones, Charlotte Church
and errrm, Harry Secombe.
Here is my postcard for Wales,
sent this week by our sleuth,
Detective Supt Kenneth Clarke
to his quarry, Lord Forsyth.
|(Oops, I had a problem with her hands, she appears to have|
six fingers on her left hand - I managed to remove an extra
one from her right hand. Although I guess extra fingers
might be handy when playing the harp!)
This slightly demonic looking lady
is wearing traditional Welsh costume,
while happily strumming on her harp.
I visited your Auntie Nerys
at her sheep farm in Denbigh.
We had a lovely cup of tea,
over which we had a very
interesting chat. She said how
you pop in and see her quite
regularly and that you always
check on her outlying barns.
Now, I wonder why you
would be so concerned about
her 'empty' barns? I'm
getting a warrant to find
Yours sincerely Kenneth Clarke (Det Supt)
What will our Ken find in the barns?
Will they be stuffed full of treasures
from Lord Forsyth's criminal endeavors?
