August Round Up - very late post

I'm really late in doing my August round up, so I will be really quick

August began with a cricket meeting and a cricket quiz and curry night which was much fun, and also an away visit to watch our Sunday league team play cricket. 

We had a fabulous weekend away to Windsor for our friends 40th Birthday.  We had a great time having a four hour boat trip along the Thames and then fun games and a BBQ in one of the parks in Windsor (Not the Great Park, but cannot remember the name of the park we was in). 


AJ and I also went to see the MotoGP at Silverstone and was made up that Valentino Rossi won the main race.  Go Rossi !!!!!  We also popped in to see my brother as he only lives about 5 miles away from Silverstone and he made us a Sunday lunch and trifle yummy.


 I visited a few friends during the month and my brother came up for a couple of days during the month.

One of the Saturdays I ended up going to my local hospital as AJ had a cricket ball smashed in his face and as a precaution had himself checked out.  Bonus was I took a day off work the next day so I could play nurse and look after him as with all head injures you need to be monitored for at least 24 hours

On the craft front I haven't done much again, but I have started to do Pocket Letters and made and sent out four.  So far (writing this in September), I have only received back 2 from the four people I swapped with which is slightly disappointing, but I am definitely still going to do Pocket Letters and I am already doing another autumn themed pocket Letter for one of them that I swapped with and I am hoping this is thetart of a continued pocket letter swap from G in the USA.

I read one book in August which was the Half Life of Hannah by Nick Alexander which was just OK.

Overall, August was ptetty uneventful

Good evening from Pickle Land

See you soon

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…
