A little catch up.......

Good morning all.
Hope this finds you all well. I did warn you that I'd be a little scarce here for a few weeks. So what's been going on in my life.....
I've helped smash a world record in Hastings


We're in there somewhere, among the 14231 pirates!

Then; for the first time in 12 years my mom in law had all her children and grandchildren on one continent and all together.

along with MIL's two sisters, their eldest daughters who also live in the UK. How funny is that; 3 sisters in SA whose eldest children all emigrated here.....and the rest of the husbands, kids.....

I haven't see the inside of my craft room for a while now but over at The Craft Barn HERE it's Impression Obsession and Stampbord week so here is a picture of the project and all the details and more photos can be found by following the link .

Right; better dash, I'm trying to get some things done before everyone wakes up so be blessed everyone and I'll catch you later!

Couldn't resist dropping in. Looks like International Speak Like a Pirate Day but that's not until 19th September! A-haaar me hearrrrties.
Book looks great. I can't get Stampbord here (in Aus) so might have a look around UK on-line.
Cheers,
Ros.

It was the pirate pic that caught my eye. Being a Bristol Rovers fan, we are known as The Pirates. Going back Rovers fans also dressed up as Pirates to try and beat the record, didn't quite make it. Wow 14k Pirates, that's some record. Fair play for taking part. Zo xx
