So, Monday, it looks like we're on! We threw our new idea out to the world last week and the Mondayers seem to like it. Now there's a relief! I think we might even have persuaded one or two Monday-ing Freshers to try us out: wouldn't that be excellent?
Of course coming up with a plan is only the beginning for me. First week out, I was under pressure to come up with the goods. I needed an interesting piece of mail with which to Monday. I hovered near the letterbox. I rifled through a stack of brown envelopes. I held up to the light the ones not actually addressed to me. Oh, no: wait, I didn't. But I can't say I wasn't tempted. And then it happened. The doorbell rang and a minute later I was saved. I had in my hands a very fresh looking (for it had travelled a long way..) white envelope, marked with that most exciting of stickers...
A squishy parcel from my dear blogging, scrapbooking friend, Mardi in Australia. Inside the envelope was a beautifully wrapped (yes I took a picture and a day later I used the wrapping paper on a layout) package; and inside that I discovered the nicest tea towel I have ever owned.
I will not be drying dishes with this one. It's cute enough to be framed. So, thank you Mardi: not only for the beautiful gift, but also for saving my bacon. Today I have post to post about; and that is entirely down to you.
Of course, next week I could be back to brown envelopes; and if that's the case, I'll regress. Why not? If you have no post which pleases you, then absolutely, yes, keep on writing about your weekend, or what you have learned, or what's new. Just keep on writing! My weekend? Pretty budget conscious, thanks. We went into town to look for buttons for the cardigan I'm knitting for Uncle Dave. My usual shop wanted one of my hard earned pounds for each button. So I backed out of there and we found a different shop, whereupon The Accountant, my better half, proved worthy of his name (it's not a career, it's a lifestyle choice) and found, in the bargain box, five of exactly the right buttons at exactly the right price. Five pence. When we got home I gave him a piece of my Terry's chocolate orange to celebrate.
Have a good week! Oh, and got mail? Let's hear about it!
Deb, Helena, Mitra, Mary-Lou, Alexandra, Jane, KraftyKaren, Karen, Melissa all joined in last week. Go on, give 'em a wave! Go say hello!
