Escaping!


Yes, I'm...really floundering!



And this is the reason...



The GCSE English spec has changed and that means....hard work!

New poems to get to grips with, for a start!


And so for the past few days, I've been spending a lot of time at my place of work.



I don't really mind as it's a lovely environment in which to be.






However, I am anything but this right now...



Yet, sometimes, a simple break can help matters and so yesterday,

I made my way to another part of the house for a bit of an escape!



Do you keep a notepad and pen by your side at all times?

Are you anything like me, with an overactive imagination?



With the help of some fave fabric scraps and some CK cards,

I decided to make myself a simple booklet to keep

right by my side at all times so that I could jot down

any ideas which spring to mind.



Well..one thing leads to another, doesn't it?

I made another one, to keep by my bedside...



One to keep in the kitchen...



One for my bag...


One for by the bath (!)



And a few extra to sell!


Cheap 'n cheerful!

Finally, the winner of my last giveaway:

Lemonade Kitty

Please send me your address!


And now..I have to fly...


I now have a date with 'Sister Maude' and some 'Nettles' !

Which sounds pretty painful and believe me, it is!

Your tuition room looks fab and so inspiring - surely no-one could leave there without a passion for reading! The notebooks are lovely - clever idea!

Delightful classroom, pretty materials and superb crafting. But what on earth are Sister Maude and Nettles? Well, I know what nettles are but not Nettles, capital N. Not John Nettles, I trust, har, har!
