London trip







Last weekend, AJ and I took a little trip to London as we had tickets to see Peter Kay at the O2 Arena. We booked into a hotel in the Docklands area overlooking Canary Wharf from across the Thames which was a short tube ride away from the O2. We had a great evening. Peter Kay was really funny and I was impressed by the O2 and had we realised it had lots of bars and restaurants, we would have got there earlier and had a bite to eat.


On the Monday, we decided to go to Greenwich for a few hours before we needed to catch our train back home. AJ and I found Greenwich charming and wished we had more time to explore and visit the sights. The sun was shining and it felt a million miles away from anywhere.


We plan to visit Greenwich again next year when the Cutty Sark has been fully refurbished and also visit more of London.


We had a lovely weekend away and was the break AJ and I needed to recharge our batteries. I even didn't mind going on the Underground (I have a big fear of escalators). The weekend changed my opinion of London. Before hand I would have said I didn't like London - my last visit was twenty years ago when I was an untravelled teenager when I found it too busy and intimidating. Visiting Greenwich at least has changed my mind and now I'm looking forward to exploring more of London in the near future.

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.




Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.




However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
