The challenge thing...

Well, I've done it. What I couldn't put together over the weekend became a rather quicker thing to do yesterday when I tidied up the lounge. Mr Dunnit and I had been shopping on Sunday (Tesco). To ensure that this romantic, together time isn't too long, Mr Dunnit bought himself a newspaper - he can retire from 'together time' behind a paper without hesitation - his argument will be of course, that he wasn't even aware of anything called 'together time' and that he wasn't avoiding anything, because he didn't know there was anything going on. And I rest my case. A man (this man), cannot seize an opportunity like a woman can - any time we are alone together is precious, huh? So its together time then, which surely is bordering on romance! Now this is not a complaint about him, you can't have him, he's not about to be sacked, no siree. I just thought you'd like to hear about my romantic Sunday. Anyhoo, for reasons of lack of choice and nothing political or vaguely analytical he bought The Independent.And the front page was the kickstart I'd been looking for over the weekend. That's the criteria see, of the challenge over at The Creative Type. You must all be sick to death of blogs with snow pictures on them, but I am duty bound to record this weather; I can't remember the last time we had this much snow in central southern England. And I'm old.
Oh and just to reinforce the image you have of me - Lady Nurse commented yesterday from the photo that I might have been about to clean my scissors - you can see a sachet of extremely good sticky stuff removing thingy. Don't panic everyone...that's been knocking about my desk for so long now I don't even notice it. When I did need to clean my scissors over the holiday, I used the bottle of stuff I keep under the kitchen sink. Slovenly? I prefer ironic!

Thanks,as ever, Julia for making me smile. I know just how you feel about the 'man thing'. Mine is just the same and he's not up for transfer either. They are def off a different planet but I'm happy to go along with that. It wouldn't do for us all to be the same and I love mine to bits.
Btw I love your winter blues pic.

My chap is pretty good in this direction - we both escape from resident mother in law. Lest you think him perfect, however, I do assure you he has other faults! Like the layout by the way!

My blokes the same. Despair of him totally but wouldn't part with him for the world :)

My OH is the least romantic person I know, but just so he could deny this occasionaly him and DD came back from the supermarket on Sunday with a bunch of roses,of course this had nothing to do with me commenting week earlier that it was ages since I'd had flowers or the fact said flowers were in the reduced bucket at supermarket! Hugs pam x

Fab colours and LO. My DH doesn't hide behind newspapers, worse still, he belongs to different classic car clubs and, not only disappears behind his own mountain of mags (as opposaed to my mountain of crafting mags) but then disappears into the garage!

Hi Julia, mines the same, I think it must be a bloke thing. Great Scrapbook page too. Hugs Jo x

Well you may have taken a while to find inspiration but it's a beautiful page Julia. I love the colours and the title (is that cut with one of those oh so expensive machines??) is pefect for the layout. Stands a chance of winning I'd say.
