Thursday was my son's birthday ... so apart from a very bad digi card no crafting was done......
Friday I tidied the ribbon drawer. Yay.
Saturday, I managed to finish a load of Lavinia art cards to go into one of my hug boxes....
Sunday, got up late, tidied my sock drawer (I kid you not - anything it seems to avoid doing some art).
Monday - very very late, around 11pm, I opened my alphabet journal and added some paint. Found some NBU stamps I liked and some older Woodware ones and started. No idea where it's going but feel so relieved to be doing something that isn't a flipping card. So here's the evidence on my desk.
However, within 2-5 mins walk in any direction I can be in parkland or green space and that has been an absolute lifesaver for me this last year. In many ways I would rather not be living in this borough (traffic, LTNs, traffic, 20mph speed limits,traffic, crime rates, HS2.....) but given what we have right HERE there are worse places to have been I'm sure. In our 'village' we have a clocktower, a very old and picturesque church, a village green and pub, no pond but a stream, a red telephone box, a community centre, a memorial garden, a tube station (transport links are fantastic, I can even get a bus to Heathrow), access to the Grand Union Canal (Paddington Branch) a main post office and a scheduled ancient monument site. (We also have MacDonalds, Subway, Asda, Sainsbury's, Co-op, 3 dentists, 3 GP practices, a mosque, 2 more churches, a vet, a garage, private nursery and 10/15 other small shops/businesses either in the village or within 1 minute of the technical boundary including a Travel lodge. Honestly if you picked us up and put us in the country everyone would want to live here).
