April round up

April came and went in the blink of an eye.  It began with a meal to celebrate my step father in laws 60th Birthday on Easter Sunday.  On Easter Monday my friends Rob and Sue came round ours for a meal.

I went to Ashby de le Zouch with my friend Chris and we had a lovely lunch in a a cafe found up an alley and it was lovely to sit in the sunshine and have a catch up.  I also went to Lichfield with AJ for a couple of hours and we had a lovely meal and I was able to take some lovely photos.

I completed my book My Husband next door which I enjoyed and I need to review here.

On the craft front I have actually done some Project Life pages a day also participated in Jennibellies Art Swap.  My first swap was with Francine from Colorado in the US.  She sent me a lovely piece of art work which I will treasure.   Again I will have to show on this blog when I get chance to photograph it and load up on this blog.  I MUST MAKE TIME TO DO THESE THINGS, I shout at myself.

Other than that I have had a pretty boring month.  Work is getting me down and I'm feeling abit low in general.  I just haven't felt like doing much at all and I feel exhausted all the time.   I am also beating myself up for having all the plans in my head but nothing coming to fruition.   It's self defeating I know and I need to give myself a big kick up the butt.

Anyway good evening from Pickle Land
Love Lesley xxx

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…
