After the glorious days we have had this week I guess it was inevitable that someone would steal the sun eventually.
Today has been one of England's typical cold wet grey days - Bill Bryson's tupperware days.
However I had a lovely time. I met a friend in town for coffeee and catch up which was lovely and then did a little shopping. I hadn't intended to shop but as I walked past Saltrock they had a sale on and it would have been rude not to go in.
I was looking for a heavier weight zipped hoodie anyway and £25 instead of £59.00 for a gorgeous furry lined hoodie seemed a good deal to me. I also bought a really super quality top down from £45 to £12.50. Then I had a bonus. As I was paying they said I had earned a free t shirt. Any t shirt int eh store. Free as I had spent over £30. So Nigel got lucky too.
I do like Saltrock stuff. Almost as good quality as FatFace and when it is that cheap what is not to like.
I also did a little scrapping, doing the weekly on UKS.
I found it quite hard as is was to use just a colour from the photo - just one colour.
It is an 8 x 8 page as it is for the Treasure Trails album which is a smaller size. We do love our treasure trails and this was one from July last year to the Tarrants. It serves as a reminder that the simple things are often the best. I can't remember when I last made daisy chains and it was such fun. And it was a happy sunny picture for a grey day.
Today I am thankful for
- company of an old friend
- sale bargains
- the beautiful lessons we can learn from the world around us
And I have a video to share today - just because I saw a skein of geese yesterday and we stopped and watched them and it reminded me of the motivational lesson we can all learn from the geese.
In my favourite park we have loads of Canada geese and I know they cause a fair number of issues but I always, always stop and admire them and watch them because of this message. We could learn so much!
Enjoy the video x
