Welcome, hope your day has been a good one. I started mine by oversleeping about 30 minutes and then getting up and seeing my son's door still closed I thought he had done the same. He had the day off so he could pick up his girlfriend who was returning from Vietnam. He hadn't told me!!! I panicked for nothing.
I got myself organised and headed off to see Shirley for our weekly get together and card making. Fran wasn't well so it was just Shirley and I today. We enjoyed our crafting and made 3 fab cards. Thanks Shirley!
I popped in to see Mum and she wasn't home so I drove around the block to a second hand shop and spent about 20 mins there poking around through the books and found a set of 6 Christian novels. No 1 was missing, so I am hoping they make sense on their own as single books. I went back to see if Mum was home and she was, so I stayed about an hour, left the books for her to read first and then headed back home to fill in about hour before heading out again to pick another friend up. We had to go and sing for our choir conductor who wants to hear all the sopranos individually so she can sound match us and move us around. We were both quite nervous about it. I ended up singing some of "The Holy City" and then we had to do scales coming downwards. My friend has Fibromyalgia and it causes problems sometimes with her breathing and muscles so she had trouble getting the high notes but was alright when I sang with her. We then had to do some singing with a piece of music we had never seen before. That was a bit off putting - especially when you are nervous and I like to hear the music first - it just seems to be a way of learning for me even though I can read the notes. I think it went okay, but we will see what happens when she has heard all us.
I stopped at the shop after dropping my friend home and got home about 5.30 p.m. Hubby didn't get home till about 6.45 p.m. - quite late for him - so we had quick tea and then I had to leave for choir and he went to a classic motorcycle meeting. LOL, ships that pass in the night!!!!
So... home about 10.30 p.m. and got stuck into making a card and I decided not to do any stamping tonight so I made it with bits and pieces from my stash, some bits from the early years of my cardmaking, before stamping took over.
