...though there's nothing wrong with the latter
even as I've been spending more time on the former. And it's because of the planning that I have to apologise today for my photos, versions of which some of you will have already seen on instagram over the weekend. I can't show pictures yet, see, of any of my mail. Over Easter, when the post slows down, nothing special arrived, so this week I'm looking forward...
...to parcels I'm hoping will arrive very soon. There's been some birthday buying: surprises for our girl, so please don't tell, all I'll say is that I hope she'll like what I chose to go with that Uniqlo dress

I finally hemmed, using over three metres of horsehair braid to make it swirl. She's hoping, I think, for a record player too, so as soon as that's settled I'll be ordering. Vinyl really is back. They're all looking for proper records now, talking about album covers again, carrying them round like the badges of honour they deserve to be. So there's that to look forward to.
And there's the fitflops I ordered after seeing them reviewed here, on the blog which speaks to those of us with feet we'd quite like to swap. I'm pinning my hopes of a summer of comfortable walking on these babies, so they'd better deliver when they're delivered.
Finally, after going backwards and forwards over it (cue one more weekend picture of confused sheep at crossroads)
I've decided to buy a new photo printer. I had, and happily used for years, a canon selphy; but it stopped working last summer and since then I've tried various printing services instead. But ordering pictures is my least favourite part of scrapbooking. It's the only bit I would call "work". Printing at home, on the spot and (this time round) wirelessly from my phone? As The Tall One would say: that's happening. Soon, I hope.
There's only one thing I've left out of my post plans. And that's what to tell you about next week now that I seem to be working ahead of myself. But you never know what's round the next corner (cue debate over whether to move the sheep picture to here) Right? I had no interesting mail this week. But I did have a couple of lovely texts, both of which will, I think, result in meet ups, one with an old friend, one with a new knitting pal. Maybe there'll be a story for next time there?
How about you? Anything new over the weekend? Any interesting news? Mail you'd like to share? It's Monday! How about making a memo?
Helena, Barb, Deb, Mary-Lou, Mitra, Maggie, Alexa, Alison, Honore, Karen, Melissa, Alexandra and Ladkyis were good enough to share last time round. Go on, give 'em a wave! And have a good week!
