A Rockin Good Week!

What a week!

A fabulous few days in our capital city was enjoyed by us all.
From the train journey to the hotel and the lovely walks to the fabulous food and the Lion King, we had some great family time with only a slight bit of bickering!
After a bit of a nightmare with iPhones and a huge thanks to the Apple Store in Manchester, we were able to have another superb night with Elbow. This is the 7th time we have seen them and not once have they disappointed.
Arriving home, we discovered the boiler was defunct, the house freezing and no hot water.
DD and I decided to leave home early for our little trip North and this is the reason why...
I've been so looking forward to meeting this lovely lady and what a welcome she gave us. The lovely Jen, owner of Wearcrafts is indeed lovely. I was even allowed to enter her fabulous little shop and ooh and ahh over the delights she has in that little Aladdin's Cave of hers. I can't wait to start playing with my new bag of stash but, ssshhhh, don't tell DH! 
Jen even came out to see us last night and we sat and chatted over coffee (well that was Jen's tipple anyway!) like we'd known each other for years! I'm so looking forward to meeting her lovely croppers tonight at her weekly crop. Exciting times!!!


  1. Glad you had a good trip :) Is that the boiler that was making odd noises but had 'nothing' wrong with it a few weeks ago? Hope it gets sorted soon and you enjoy your crop :)

  2. Ah it looks like you've had a fab week and love that you've met up with Jen - only a little bit green with envy!

  3. Oh how fab Lesley - the trip-concert-trip sandwich not the boiler!
    Have fun at the crop.

  4. Oh you poor things - the lack of heating is a bummer. That happened to us twice in this new house - once on day two here when I was here alone and struggle to talk in German about stuff I don't understand either! And then we came back from our two week business trip to Malaysia (34°C) to get to the house where it was about around freezing with snow outside back in Dec 2012!! It's a killer! And of course, no one works here on a Sunday so we had to wait 36 hours!!! Fun stuff. But sounds like your trip was very successful - have wanted to go London this year but I don't think it's going to happen. And as for meeting other scrappy people - it's always so lovely to find these like-minded people!

    1. Things are great when they work eh Lisa!??

  5. What an amazing week! And that picture of you and Jen is gorgeous :) Have an excellent week :)


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
