It's been fraught with activity but then I don't do "lounging" about these days. Yesterday I was at Crafts 4 U 2 Do (St Helens) to teach two fantastic projects to the regulars there.
Then last night Mark and I went to see Michael McIntyre in Liverpool. Ahem, the tickets were my crimbo pressie from last year, I hasten to add! We went out for tapas before the show and I went a little giddy and had wine AND cocktails. I know.......how irresponsible of me! I blind ordered a fun sounding cocktail as it was happy hour (2 for 1) and when I tried it, it set my throat on fire. HOOCH! Bloody awful, tasted like horses ass - there was a pure look of disdain etched on my face for the restaurant to wince over! The waitress laughed at me and said she'd replace them for free. We had sex on the beach instead (the drink, not a bit of "how's your father" on the Albert Dock, thank you!!!). I got a bit squiffy - an act of which has not occurred for several years, I may add.
We nipped over to the Echo arena, after that, to watch the show. It was, without doubt, tummy achingly fantastic. I do love this comedian.... Comedy gold. I laughed the whole night through and was thoroughly entertained. Thank you for my best gift ever, Marko.
Then it was back home, past the Liverpool eye, for a cuppa cha to round the night off.
Today I head straight off to demonstrate for Stix 2 at the craft shop in Clitheroe. I was demonstrating their cracker blanks amongst a number of adhesives. It was proper packed and so much fun. I thoroughly recommend trimming your own crackers this crimbo, seriously......... They're cracking. Beryl and Lauren were so kind to me. That kind of warmth makes a huge difference when you work somewhere new!
Then later this afternoon I was away home to my girl. We got ready to go out to the restaurant that she chose to go to. Miller and Carter restaurants are fantastic steak houses and the one at Parbold is heaven on a stick. She invited her nanna and pops too ......... To Ellie, dining with family is king. She didn't invite any friends because she has no friends except class mates ....... Ellie feels safe with family and likes it like that - so my anonymous reader can go and shove her ridiculous suggestions where the sun doesn't shine. Quite frankly, her tedious comments are skull numbingly unnecessary. Bore off and leave us alone.
And there you go. Non stop action from chez Wiseman.
