Wish I could wind back a week!

I know I still havent sorted the fotos for the header!

Wow what a weekend I had at the Sarah's Cards retreat. The organisation behind the scenes & the classses were just fabulous, amazing goody bags, lush shop, & lovely, lovely people.

I haven't laughed so much in a long time and it was so nice to make new friends and meet people that I have spoken to online.

Very tempted to book for November!

I will upload some LO's once I've photographed them.

But for now:

listening - to nothing, its very quiet today
eating - a bag of salt & vinegar square crisps, yum!
drinking - coffee
wearing - black skirt & white blouse

feeling - a little tired from staying up too late to finish a LO
weather - sunny but cold
wanting - to be back on the retreat

needing - to put an enormous pile of washing away

thinking - I wish I was back on the retreat
enjoying - the sun coming through my window

wondering - how to get acrylic paint out of the carpet & Tiggy's hair

Yes my DD's decided last night to do some painting in the spare room & covered each other & the carpet in a multitude of colours of acrylic paint! This time last week I'd have lost the plot with them, but having had some "me" time this weekend, I can take a deep breath & close the bedroom door!!

Back later to upload some LO's :)

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

  1. lol you made me laugh Claire with the close the door - good idea! 'Me' time is so important isn't it! I don't think you realise it or fully appreciate it until you are a mummy :) Looking forward to seeing what you did at Sarah's. xxx

  2. Hi Claire, I know what you mean wish we could do the Retreat all over again! Mmm.... acrylic paint all I can say is don't wet it, just makes it worse. Think the easiest way is to pick it out of the carpet - not sure about the children though!! Teeeheeee! Jill x

  3. That retreat sounds idyllic.
    Good luck with the paint.
    Hugs xx

  4. mmm know what you mean about wanting to be back on the retreat. So wish I was still there scrapping. Did mean to do some today but am so tired after a lack of sleep over the weekend that I can't do anything. Looking forward to seeing your layouts (again)!

  5. Ooh Claire you sound like you had a great time! Can't wait to see what you created - and good for you just closing that bedroom door!

  6. Eek at the paint hehe.
    It was lovely to meet you on the weekend :) xx

  7. Love the idea of recording these little things each day - I've given it a go on my blog, and linked back to yours, hope you don't mind :)
    And it was lovely to meet you at the retreat :D
