Flowers from Mel and D's wedding

Did the bridal bouquets for my brother and now sister in law's wedding a couple of weekends ago. Unfortunately we didn't grab any photos of the bouquets whilst we were home, so I am having to wait for the bouquets to come through in other people's photos that I can leech from.

Three Musketeers Screening

Hi everyone,

So sorry to do this, but the event date for Three Musketeers screening has changed - it's not actually being released till the week later. Screening is now set for the 21st. I have updated this, could you please check if you have already rsvped to make sure you are still able to attend?

Many thanks!

I promised myself I wouldn't do this...

Cause I didn't have time, cause I don't have a sewing machine, cause I didn't know how to sew...

And then I found out that I could do quilting using a piecing pattern...

And that I could handsew it a bit at a time. And I realised I was doomed...

The pattern is one I have been playing with for a while - I initially was going to do this years ago in blues. But I am actually really loving the colour scheme of this pattern right now, and loving how it is taking shape. Of course, it's incredibly slow going, and it's not very neat right now, but I am hoping it will eventually get better....

J: (different one to the first J)Oh look at the time, I must be going!
M: Good!
J: Good?
M: Do you really think I want to be sharing my lunch time?
J: Well I was hoping you'd share your lunch actually. What have you got?
M: Just some chicken casserole crap I threw together last night.
J: Wow that sounds so totally appealing. I'm sold!

Apparently I need to work on my marketing skills...

M: Want a fat froggy?
C: Is it chocolate?
M: Nope, but it's red food colouring!
C: That'll do. I'll have two so they can mate
M: In your tummy!

So whilst the red froggies haven't helped my headache, they have made me hyperactive! :)

Quotes of the day

Once the sugar coating wears off, it doesn't go down very well at all. You kind of gag on it and need to drink a lot to get rid of the aftertaste.

J: No, I chew it up and swallow. :)
Me: You're much harsher than I am :) I tend to let it melt on my tongue so the flavour spreads and it becomes gooey and then swallow :)
