A great day at the Newbury Paper Craft Show

Happy Sunday everyone.  I'm just drinking a coffee and enjoying the total peace and quiet in the house after one of the most hectic weeks ever.  
Ols and Sophie are now officially home owners, and seem to be settling down in the fab new house, Harry has completed his Landscape Architecture work experience (no more mum la taxi needed), my little Sis is celebrating her 50th Birthday today, Hap Hap Happy Birthday Annie Lou......xx  I hope you have a wonderful day in Clovelly, and we are all just home from a day at the Races - well the Newbury Papercraft Show actually - not a horse in sight. What a great day we all had yesterday.  Sarah and Cathy, thank you sooooo much for all your help, before, during and after the show, and thank you to everyone who came onto the stand, shopped with us and joined me for some crafty demo's during the day. Here's a few pics from the event.

  7. I'm smiling at your son's step into the joys of home ownership...backed up plumbing at 4AM, running out of paint with just a 2 more feet to go, clogged gutters, doorknobs that fall off, a stuck fireplace damper, meeting the demands of a home owner association, boarding up a broken window until you can get it repaired, kitchen cabinet doors that won't stay closed, a pilot light that doesn't work, etc. He gets to do it all himself!! Such are the joys of life...
