Apologies for not being around but I had a funeral to attend last Wednesday which I went to by train, in fact 3 trains each way. I'm fine with using trains and hoping platforms with 2mins to spare on one connection but just couldn't face doing the M25 and trying to work out which correct exit to come off at. It was a tiring day though. Then when I came home I had a commissioned card to hand deliver the next day and whilst the card was made I needed to just make a quick envelope up for it.
Just and quick do not go together! Firstly my envelope maker required me to use a 12"x12" paper but the digi paper I was working with was only 8"x 11" ish and not wanting to put a join in the envelope I went off to the the drawing board to devise my own envelope. 3 hrs later and I had a box envelope I was pleased with. Then I had the bright idea of building a magnetic closure into the design. Do I ever learn!!!!! I eventually finished the box in the small wee hours of the morning. I can't show the card or box yet but they were well liked by the recipient. I had another commission on Saturday to hand deliver so Friday was spent out in the garden (it being lovely weather) finishing that one too. I will show that in a post shortly. Today has been just as hectic as we had the planner arrive for the last stage of the bathroom refit to measure up for the replacement door to the built in cupboard (that had to be partially demolished in order to fit the new bath and shower screen in). Once that has been fitted it will all be done and I can show you the finished bathroom in all it's glory. Oh and The Doc also had the dentist on Friday as well and we both have the opticians this Thursday. If work rang me up now and said we need you back I'd be saying "Exactly which 5mins of the day would you be thinking of then?" Whoever said retirement was easy or boring!!
I will be round asap to all your blogs.
