It was a picture framing, pottering, rugby cheering, match marathon of a weekend. A "Beck" recording, hot dog chomping, sock knitting, lying in the sun with the papers weekend. Or, at least it felt that way - finally - by Sunday teatime. Saturday had been busier:
A go queue for a flu jab day, combined with a monster shopping trip. Of course! The shopping trip! That was the main event.
The much talked about, heavily planned for, formal shoe shopping event. It's only three weeks to go! This year's "Formal" as we know it, "Prom" to many of you, has been moved forward from February to October: a cunning plan by those in charge to keep minds on school work after Christmas. There was outrage first; but the lure of the early sparkle soon won them round. So now she has the dress, the partner and - at last - the shoes and the bag. She says he seems up to speed on the whole corsage thing: nearly there, then.
I was taking a couple of quick pictures when I noticed the label: "Untold". Now there's a red rag to a scrapbooker. Of course there'll be a story. After I've got my head round it all. It's only a couple of weeks, after all, since I was making a page about basic black brogues and the start of her final school year.

So that leaves Me on Monday, looking a little crafty - and not in a scrapbooking way - I think you'll agree. It's because of my plan for the week: decluttering. Need I say more?
So last week Deb, Helena, Eileen, Mary-Lou, Maggie, Ruth, Fiona, Michelle, Karen, Sheena, Louise, Julia, Liz and Louise H all gave us a wave, wished us the best of our Monday. Hope it's a good one for you this week too! And if you'd like a wave, you are very welcome to join us. Leave me a comment and I'll be round shortly!
