It's a lovely day . . .

The sun is shining and it's not raining for a change. Edward and I have been out for breakfast. Bacon, egg and sausage for him, sausage baguette for me - mmm yum. Emily, typical teenager, couldn't be bothered to get out of bed and join us - her loss. We had a little walk by the river, it was beautiful. No photos though as Mark has taken my camera to Chester with him today.

Popped into the Oxfam bookshop for a little browse. Bought myself another Jodi Picoult as I am enjoying My Sister's Keeper, and two Roald Dahl books that Edward wanted. Did see a Chalet School hardback, first time I've seen one in there, but too expensive for me today. I can always dream.

Came home to find Emily still in her pyjamas sprawled in front of the television. No sense of urgency for her GCSE Science Module which is just round the corner - just as well that I bought her two revision books whilst I was in town.

Have finally got back into my hexagonal blanket - did some whilst watching the Brits last night (only watched it for Robbie, who was fantastic. Peter Kay was so funny, but the rest . . . well . . . rubbish really!!). Anyway back to the blanket - I am aiming to finish the round I am working on over the next few days - maybe 15 hexagons in to total. It's looking good, but it's getting really heavy.

I have to confess to this small purchase that I could not resist - Martha Stewart glitter. It's so beautiful. The colours are delicious with gorgeous names of jewels like lapis lazuli, peridot, carnelian, garnet and tourmaline. The problem is, they are too nice to use!!

I feel so pleased, I had a little count up of all the Christmas cards I've made recently, and guess how many. Go on guess. OK it's 76 - yes I did say 76!! How amazing! I think I am going to have a break now as I feel the need to make some birthday cards - got a really busy month coming up and I need to feel organised. I'm not sure what I am going to do yet, but I'm sure inspiration will arrive soon. Anyway - these are the final designs from the Joy paper range that I will be making for some time - hope you like them.

I hope you have a glorious day.
Lots of love
