Wooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooo. The Wisemans will spend v. presh vacay time together at last! We booked our hollies today and we are going back to the charming Santo Tomas area of Minorca. We plan to meet up with a wonderful family we met there last year **waves to the Leesey's** and Ive got a chart counting down the days which also doubles as "lose weight you fat cow" chart. Classy, huh?Picture is of Belle at sunset last year in Minorca.
So many nice things happening to us right now. I swear it stems from the secrets of The Secret. Finally after weeks and weeks the 50mm F1.4 baby has arrived (Anita, you can bet your bottom dollar it will have sea water in it), Belle found the game we have been frantically searching for (Cooking Mamma - we love Amazon) plus the school is she is attending have offered her own Alphasmart unit (Belle cant write properly and this is like a miniature lap top to type her work for up to 8 lessons then she goes to a sub station in the school, cables it up and it prints her work!!! - major cool beans)and Mark managed to order a stop cock replacement for our dripping lavvy (double classy!). We are awfully posh and have an Italian bathroom suite but comes with that is a nightmare purchasing replacements seats, washers, etc. Sorry to bore you with that but you don't know what hell it is trying to get that room straight! Since we have been in this house (nigh on 4 years) the room has changed from yellow to purple to duck egg blue and brown. I'm itching for a change again. Sorry Mark. Well, actually Im not. He knows what Im like.
I had a nice day. I went over to Leeds to spend a bit of time with my Momma who is visiting friends there. Its kind of half way between where we both live, you can imagine the nice feeling of having coffee with your momma who lives miles and miles away. I bought a fabbo set of glitter stickers for scrapping from a non scrappy shop so watch out for them featuring in some random future layout. I can't believe I find the cutest things when I'm not actually "looking". The only downside to the day is that my chest is starting to get worse again. I'm convinced that this stomach ulcer has returned (or never went away). I honestly feel like I have been punched in the back and chest and when I cough it feels bloody awful. I won't be beat though, I'm going to laugh my way through this and will myself better. I wouldn't care but I don't drink or smoke so my lifestyle doesn't warrant an ulcer. Perhaps its the large amounts of stash licking I do (I don't stroke, I lick).
Anyway.....Yawn, its awful late. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
OOOOOOOOOO, I know what I had to tell you. My friend Traci is dying her hair popsicle pink for Cancer research. Having been recently affected by a family member whose longevity is not looking good, she felt it necessary to raise some cash. I myself know what that feeling is like! Please bob over and see her. She runs an online shop selling card making things and demonstrates for Janome. I think she is just such fun to be around. She is always jolly, laughing and happy.... that's a golden nugget itself.
And finally I'll leave you with an overlay. This is something I whipped up tonight whilst waiting for some glossy accents to dry. She is called Spritz and she is available HERE
