I love Fridays :)

Well this one in particular I've loved!

Woke to more sunshine which is always a good start to the day.

Boys were busy doing nothing this morning so I left them to it and popped into town. I was having CS withdrawal symptoms! Went into all 4 shops in town & 2 came up trumps :)

4 more pairs of coloured plastic needles for my ever growing collection;
2 more Ladybird books

Came home to find the postie had been and brought me my final birthday pressie!!

Well worth waiting for - lots to inspire and when I've time I shall be doing something inspired by this book.

Its was quiet here this afternoon, MrVV was out today, little son was at the cinema with a friend and big son spent his time happily battling things on the Wii. On my to-do list was 'make a birthday card for a sister' who's birthday is next week.  Thought I'd try something a bit different - quite pleased with the results;

Have a good weekend - I believe its going to be sunny & warm. We have plans for Saturday which hopefully will happen.  Big son is out tonight bowling with the Explorer Scouts - means MrVV can't have a drink as he's got to collect him later :( - doesn't mean I can't have a cider though ;)

Till next time

Your Russian Doll Card is beautiful, bet your sister is delighted with it.

I love Fridays too, even though I haven't worked outside of the house for years I still get that Friday feeling.

Love the needles, lovely collection.

I am on my way, 2 boys and more Cider in tow!

Perfect, they can play at 'battling' and we can drink, be merry and chat about nonsense.

Love it!

What super CS finds? I also love Ladybird books but am unsure what is a reasonable price to pay. Also I'm sure some CS don't put them out as they think they are too old!!!

Hi Vicki

I like your collection of colourful knitting needles, just the kind of thing I like collecting. It does sound like you have had a good Friday, here's wishing a good rest of the weekend.

It's sunny and warm here, wonderful!

Warm wishes

I like your knitting needles - I keep looking at them in shops ...I think I'm going to try to learn to crochet.
As I don't drive, my hubby is always the Taxi -but sometimes we make Jess & co share a Taxi. She's learning to drive now & can be our Taxi !!!
Used to love Cider -now Jess drinks it when she's at a party. My best friend's mum told us at fifteen we could dink Cider. I seriously think she thought it was fizzy apple juice !
