Today I gorged on a luxury microdermabrasion at my local salon. Ive been saving for ages and today was the day nearest my saved stash total. First I gots a back massage then a full facial microdermabrasion (Crystal Clear, try it...its lush) and then a head massage - for a very special price. Gill, my therapist and confidante sure made my hair look real purdy on exit of the session - NOT. I swear a head massage is not the best hair style a girl can wish for but man, I felt fabulous when I got home. The dog took one look at me in my sedate state and didn't recognise me. Im generally neurotic at midday so the poor sod was a tad confused.
When I got back I booked him in for the vets as he has been real gruffly for the last 48 hours. That appointment was for later in the day so I spent most of afternoon unpacking my Studio Calico kit which is a bit lish, if I dare say. Its very "boy" themed which obv will be spent on the dawg but of course there are elements which I can use for the Bellemeister too. I also had to make preps for a beading course that Crafts Beautiful are sending me on tomorrow. Im so, so lucky for this opportunity because Claire Aristsides workshops are stunning and I will come home with a couple of pieces of jewellery after a lovely day learning ultra chic beading techniques. Lummy, do I really have room for another hobby on top of scrapping, cards, tags and photography? I think I doooooooooo.
Went to collect the Bellemeister from school and had to take a trip into town for a few errands. It also coupled with a trip to a fancy schmancy dolls house shop as Belle and I are about to embark on dressing one up. Belle was absolutely fascinated with them when we saw them in a shop window recently. She doesn't want one to "play" with. She just wants to build each room with proper light fittings and real carpets and beautiful pieces of teeny furniture. We bought this house already decorated on the outside in her fave colours. It had been reduced by 25% so it really was a bargain. I much preferred the plain houses in the shop which includes shopping parades, manor houses and even conservatories. Its a beautiful shop that lots of pocket money will no doubt be spent in. The plan is that I will create some of my own designed wallpaper for the interiors and the rest of the house decor will be a working progress. Ive never seen Ellie so excited before. She never was a child that played with dolls or girly things so this notion of her getting into interiors is quite exciting for her (and me, of course!).
Whilst out we went to get a few provisions for the weekend and I popped into our local Quality Save - how cool is this shop? I bought Oil of Olay tinted moisturiser for 75% less than Boots and Nivea facial wipes for next to nothing. I mean, what is wrong with me not shopping around these days? I also bought these three tea towels which I am going to sew into two totes. Guess how much? Well blow me down, only £1.49 for the three. Bodacious bargains, dudes. The chequered tea towl will be used for handles and accents on each "bag". Tea towel bags are the future, you know!
When we got back we had to take Eds to the vets. One injection and three tablets later coupled with a hideous £40 vets bill, he is on his way back to recovering from a crappy cold. Jeez, when I get a cold its costs me a box of tissues and a night bundled up in my pj's. Little sod. Anyhow, the Vet was really good to him as Eds was shaking like a leaf in the examination room (and its not surprising as the smell of fear from other pets fear pheromones clearly drove him ditzy) but our Vets fave breed of dog is a Dachs so we knew he was in good hands.
Finally, I have a RAK for one tag loving tag lover. If you want to win these little bits to assemble one of your own, leave your name in the comment section and Ill draw a winner tomoz night. Really, its only basic but its a fun little project for a rainy day.
Gotta get an early night, beads abound tomorrow and I need my hands to be at their busiest and best. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy mothers day on Sunday. Which reminds me, Mark so wants to give me £50 to spend in some crazy craft shop somewhere. Well that's what Im leaning for and I know he reads my blog. Ahem!
