Soz, cuz , gr8 and things like that!

So you get this text message:

'Gd am!
Soz this is such short notice but just remembered it's the Rowcroft linen sale 2day!
Cud pick u up at 8.30 if u wud like 2 go... or meet in the queue'

( you go to 'Google Translate'...LOL!)

And then you send a reply saying that you can't make it due to being on taxi duty for one's son... but....
'Please do grab me something'!!

'And do call for coffee afterwards, if you have time!'

And this is what she grabs you...a
lovely vintage embroidered tablecloth!
And you have coffee and a good old natter..vintage style, naturally!

It must have been a day for beautiful things as some scrummy vintage fabric arrived at your place too! So you get busy ironing and folding like crazy, to get ready for the Homespun Fair at Portscatho, next Sunday 8th August .

And you also put some of it here in your vintage fabrics blogshop.
(on the sidebar)

And then you try to 'educate' yourself...

Lovely stuff, Sal. Andy absolutely hates "short text" and refuses to have any part of it, dinosaur that he is. I must say, my mum is very good at it (prob from texting her grand children) but it seems very strange coming from her and takes me ages to decipher it! Have a good weekend.

I do understand text speak but I do hope the English language doesn't end up like it!

How utterly gorgeous is that cloth?!
I do not like text speak. It took me months to find out what LOL meant!

Wonderful cloth, "got" most of your text speak apart from "Soz".......... shall "Google" it. :O))))

:) The text speak is funny when you see it written down like that! I do use some of it, but not as much as your last two sentences! Took me a minute to work out what hagw was! :)

Love your vintage farics

What on earth is Soz? Short for sozzled? I think perhaps not. I don't do text speak, either. I didn't go to grammar school for nuttin'!

hahahahahahaahahahaha!!!!!!!!! I recognize that msg(message) soz(SORRY!!!) about that! I agree, I don't really like 'text speak' either but when one is restricted to 160 characters it can be hard to squash it all in, chatty(vintage!) girl that I am! The cloth has come up well and I'm chuffed to bits with the beautiful fat quarters!
Have a gr8 w/ omg ttfn an' all!!!

That must have been our lovely mutual friend - gorgeous cloth!

Text speak is like another language...luckily even my 16 year old refuses to use it so I get messages that I can actually read!

Josie-Mary said...

Love the table cloth :)
