I've just had a lovely weekend - I had my day off work on Friday - Richard was off too, though he went golfing in the morning - left home about 6am! He was home at lunchtime and we went for lunch at a local cafe, before doing the grocery shopping, then collecting the children from school.
Then, on Saturday morning, I went to a Stampin Up Craft Workshop, where we decorated some wooden letters for a Christmas mantlepiece decoration. I love it. When Andrew saw it though he asked "Who's Noel?" - so funny!
We also managed to make a Christmas card - I thought this was a fabulous idea. We made a patchwork of different Christmas papers, then diecut the shape and embossed it, inked around the edges and added the sentiment. I might try this idea on another card, using my own tools.
Then, when I came home, it was such a gorgeous afternoon, we all went for a walk along the river and canal, down to a weir to try to watch the salmon leaping. We did see a couple of salmon attempting it, but they did not manage to get up whilst we were there.
Yesterday, Richard's Dad came for Sunday lunch with us - it was good to see him too.
This week is half term, but I have no idea what we're doing - Eleri is out playing with a friend at the moment. She wants to go swimming sometime in the week. We'll just take each day as it comes I suppose, and the week will fly by!
See you soon.
Love, Andrea xx
