I've had a smashing day..
I went to Marlborough today with my friend the Colonial doll. We met at Kraft Crazy, my local shop, she comes to some of the Workshops and we've become friends. How often do you hear that about people we meet through crafting. Stacks. Ain't it great! Now my Colonial friend has a gift; she's cheerful, upbeat and her wit is quick. I like it. She's very quick to the see the joke and will laugh like a drain, which is frankly, good for the soul. We were in my second favourite sort of store - a cook shop, independent, stuffed to the gunwhales with wonderful gadgets gizmos and stuff that you need in your kitchen. Mmm. Like the Onion Goggles which really had us going. Seriously, a pair of swimming goggles, styled to put on like glasses, but cushioned around the lenses so that onion vapour can't penetrate and cause you to cry. And the frame was pink. Well, we kinda did cry, but not from onions. The lovely ladyshopkeeper tried really hard too - told us about a chap who had chosen a green framed pair to use on his bike in the summer - anti bug, see. Cue more crying from me and the Colonial doll. I did manage to get what I'd gone in for (I have a seriously ridiculous thing for buying nice shaped biscuit cutters), but really, I think the ladyshopkeeper was relieved when we paid up and left! So now I must settle in and get the LO done that I was working on when the Colonial doll arrived this morning. Sitting, front door open (full on sun shine, see) on the hall floor, photographing a pile of rubbish. Really - the contents of my handbag to be precise, but oh my, how much rubbish! So watch this space, I don't know if it'll reveal any more than you already know about me, but it may turn out to be as interesting as WOYWW! Oh and the car window? The result of driving past some rather zealous strimmer guy on a verge in the village. How very inconvenient. But it has been a smashing day!
