Blooming neighbour !

Good afternoon to you all, hope to find you well & happy. Well, Martin came home from work with a Migraine headache, so dosed up was packed off to bed ! 5 minutes later my neighbour started drilling ! They must have no space left to drill { they are always drillling something & I feel sure thir house will collapse one day}! He seems to be ok though..leaving me time to craft. I'm on Christmas cards now so perhaps I'll be ok this year. Look after yourselves X Jean

Having  had this last week off work as a holiday feeling pretty calm. The weather has been fab. & had lots of time to browse my fav DC forum. Watched Anna Karennina on Friday { won't spoil it for anyone intending to watch}, a super weekend last week at Yarmouth, lots of goodies ordered & recieved online & locally. Fitted the dentist in, and broke my cuttlebug { downsides of the week}, but actually not dreading going back to work for once! Hope you've all had a good week, enjoy the next one X Jean

Fab weekend

I've been such a lazy blogger recently, so much to do .......etc. But had a fab weekend at Ipswich with the East Norfolk Militia. Weather has been out of this world {at last} & The Ipswich maritime festival & beer festival has been such good fun. We stayed in student accomodation , ate out all weekend { no cooking or washing up}, but I did take a crafting mag. with me. The next event is Sept 1/2 at Gt Yarmouth, which is our home ground so to speak. If anyone goes there, please stop to say hello. Hope you've all had a great weekend X Jean

Quotes ...the first thing that comes to mind is " Always look on the bright side of life", from the film The life of Brian. This blog prompt makes me want to use more quotations in my scrapbooking.

Hoveton Hall 2011 - The East Norfolk Militia

Hoveton Hall 2011 - The East Norfolk Militia

You can tell I don't know what I'm doing !  I was on our web site & a button said send to ... so to see what happened I just had to do it and hey presto it's on here now !!!!!!!!!!!!! I suppose it's the only way to learn, by making mistakes. I must learn not to press anything until I know what it does.

Hello again, and todays blog is about the book I am reading at the moment. This is wierd because until the weekend, I hadn't read a book since Christmas { too busy}! Then I bought this book from a charity shop. It's the Emperor's Lady', by F.W.Kenyon ..first printed in 1952.

Yes, That is me !!1

I have always liked British history { the social side }, and especially the Regency era. Now some of you may know Martin & I are in a small re~ enactment group , the East Norfolk Militia. We have immense fun doing this and have made many friends. This book has made me want to do a project , but have no time at present. I would like to do a very feminine criss cross card, but that will be later. I have however some pics to include today, and a card inspired by our group ..someone wants 2 similar ones made.
