I thought it a better title than 'It's April!' because I'm pretty sure you already know that. And probably like me, you're pretty shocked at how quickly the weeks are turning into months. Here we are, fairly entrenched in 2010 and I'm not used to it yet. Gah! Getting old. The calendar LO isn't an April Fool, so much as an April Foolish. I thought I'd do myself and a few others a favour and use a few flowers. That'll be about a month's worth, surely!
As we're gearing up for a lovely long weekend (at least), I thought we could collectively do a recommendation blog post - if we're all out and about getting fresh air, being outdoorsy, investing time enjoying our families, it's only fair that we reward ourselves. So if you know of a lovely craft shop that will be open at any stage of the holidays, tell us about it. Then we can plan our days out and erm, act surprised when the DH or the children say 'look Mummy, there's a craft shop!' as they are so well trained to do.
So I'll start with a couple, please add yours in the comments.
Kraft Crazy, Station Road, Tidworth, Hants 01980 844010:Open on Saturday, closed Bank Hols and open normal hours during week. Ring ahead to double check. Definitely worth a visit - stocked and up to date. Tell Shopkeeper Gal you know me. She'll probably laugh.
Abercardabra, Baker Street, Aberystwyth 01970 626119: Open Good Friday and Saturday as normal, closed on BHol Monday, check other hours with Welsh Shopkeeper Gal. Of course a well stocked and charming shop, and about 200 yards from the seaside. How damn perfect is that. You can tell her you know me, she'll probably laugh.
Have a beautiful restful colourful cheerful and spring like weekend, won't you?
