Ok enough business!! I have taken up a new hobby! BRAIN TRAINING!!!
I usually avoid computer games as I do have the tendancy to sit in an addictive manner forget everything around me and play for hours!!!!
But after my first brain test ( partly due to the fact that it didnt recognise my voice) I ended with a brain age of 80!!!!!HAHAHAHAHAAHA!!!!!
Ok so after a whole week of training I am at 30 which a year younger than my actual age but apparantly I need to be at 20...so I have along way to go!!!!!!!
I cant wait for Spring!!! I'm itching to get in the garden!! We also share an allotment with Friends which is in the very early stages at the mo....so we will be growing all sorts of Veggies there this year..which is a much better idea than growing them in my garden as my pumpkin vines were squashed by football play last year!!
So I'm going to be pretty busy over the next 2-3 weeks as I will be preparing for the Vintage and homemad fair in Northamptonshire.... As you may or may not know we are trying for a another baby so I will be eventually losing my craft room to a nursery!!! I have so many shelves, frames and lots of home accessories to make over so they will be selling for a song!!! If you can get up there come an grab a bargain!!!!
I got the following award a couple of weeks ago from the LOVELY LISSYLOU!!!
Thankyou hunny xx
The condition of accepting the award is to pass it on to 5 people and to list 5 things I like doing;
1. Treasure hunting
No not for buried Gold with Maps but in Old junk shops, Markets, Car boots, charity shops.....the joy of finding that one treasure in a pile of old rubbish is heavenly!!!
I love hugs with my Little Boy and hubby...or anyone else who comes along to my house! No one leaves without a big hug from me....except maybe the guy who reads the gas meter!!!
As my profile states I LOVE TO CREATE!!!
I dont have a favourite craft really, I'm lucky to be able to make a wide range of crafts, Jewellery, painting, drawing, paper crafts...etc Whatever I am in the mood for is my favourite for that day!
4.Being with my Friends
I'm SOOO Blessed with my friends I try to be the best friend I can be and in return get the loyalest, kindest generous people in my life...who would be there for me in a heartbeat as they know I will be for them. In my house every Wednesday is 'PANCAKE WEDNESDAY' Where I make fluffy american style pancakes, bacon and maple syrup and have my girlies round who make coffee and sit and talk about everything and anything! Its Tradition now!
5.( this may sound weird)
Taking a Mental photo
I will explain! So you know when you Stop and pause to really remember what you are doing in that moment because are really enjoying something! In my case it might be.....
Reading a great book in a squashy bed with freshly washed linen, sitting and drooling over cooking programmes and drinking coffee with my friend, Watching your Son bond with family members whilst they try to put lego sets together! Watching someone open a gift that you really put a lot of thought into buying and they LOVE IT!!
I'm gonna pass this award onto the following people who I either love to hear about or would like to know more about!
So please excuse me if I posts are scarce but I'm planning hard to be ultra organised so I can take lots of pictures of the fair this time!!
Until next time...
