Today was a lovely Spring Day although a couple of my friends had problems with Hay Fever. I spent the morning catching up on some washing and sorting a little bit more in my craft room. I am very slowly getting rid of some bits and pieces especially plastic packaging as I put things away. The pile of boxes in my lounge is getting smaller too as I am trying to be a bit ruthless and get rid of magazines etc that I just know I won't use. I took a pile of cross stitch books to craft on Wednesday and put on the trading table. I do like cross stitch, but I just know I will not get around to using any of the patterns in the book and I already have a couple of kits put away for use later on and a couple of those UFO's lurking in the craft room too!
Our little craft group today had all of us there for a change, so we totalled 6 people. We didn't get much done as last week I introduced Jane to the world of Text Twist 2 and she downloaded it onto her i-pad. Today I showed another one of the girls who was interested and then she and I both played for a little while.
Our youngest daughter popped in briefly this morning just before I left to buy lunch and afternoon tea for craft. We had a meal out tonight with friends. They are off for a few weeks holiday on Monday so will miss our regular night out.
I did end up going to church choir practice - so far I've had one night at home this week!!!
