Ah, Friday at last. It's been a weird (and emotionally draining) old week for me, and very little of it bloggable!!!
VERY glad of the weekend and grateful for all that I have.
I did however manage a little trip out with my lovely friend Jane - a date I was so glad I kept.
I decided I needed more buttons (Cleggy literally couldn't speak when I announced that one!) so we popped into Manchester to the bead shop. I only bought 4 buttons (because I couldn't find anything I didn't already have), resisted a couple of dresses I would have bought it I hadn't made that stupid pledge, and picked up some little charms for a (nother) future project that's filling my head space.
We also managed the obligatory cup of tea (actually I had the best cup of coffee I've had in a LONG time...
v v fussy!) and half a cake!
We also visited the Craft and Design Centre, which is a converted fish market filled with independent artists and crafts people. It's very easy to part with your cash here - and I couldn't resist an (other) tile from my favourite ceramicist Lee Page Hanson (see my homage to Lee here)
At this point I appeased a little of the shopping guilt I was feeling by buying the boys some jumping beans
I was amazed that they hadn't ever seen them before! I think GB seriously thought that they were magic...fee x
