Going 'down town'...and then ..a romp!!! ;-)

My two favourite shops in Newton Abbot must've received a warning

that I was nipping 'down town' today!

Because, by jove, they were looking their best for me!

'Vintage Now Interiors' , owned by my friend Jane, was a riot of colour,

not to mention full of the most gorgeous goodies.

Secondly, in Newton Abbot we have the best Oxfam bookshop ever!

My photos no way do this window justice!

There's a young girl who, in her own spare time,

works on the window displays at this little shop.

She puts together the most fabulous displays on a variety of themes.

Going 'down town' really isn't so bad at times!!

And tomorrow, Mr S has the day off and we're going

for a 'romp' !!!

A retro romp no less !!

Watch this space!

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. 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!
