Today has been rather eventful compared to my usual. It started off as a great post day! I received these awesome Seedboms by Kabloom sent by Eco-Market. I understand that the point of these is to be a bit of a guerrilla gardner, and deploy the 'bom's' into neglected neighbourhoods, but I wont be able to resist using at least a couple of these in my new garden when we move in!
I've also been getting rather excited about shrinky dinks the last couple of days, so I stopped for a few minutes to admire my first attempts. I'm planning on spray painting the SMILE then making it into a necklace. I'm not sure what I am going to do with the diamonds. I might turn the small ones into earrings if I can get hold of the right equipment!
These are seriously addictive! In the next couple of days I will be sharing a Game of Thrones themed Shrinky Dink tutorial, so keep your eyes peeled if you are a GOT fan! Although you will still be able to join in, by making a few small changes, if you are not as crazy about Game of Thrones as I am! (But if you're not into Game of Thrones, I'm sorry we can't be friends. Only kidding, I will still be your friend as long as you start watching it RIGHT NOW!)
After manically doing some work, my Mum turned up to take me shopping for a wedding dress! I have to say, I'm finding it quite stressful. How do you know when you have found 'The One'? I've found a couple that I really love, and maybe when they are altered to fit me, and have a little tweak here and there, they will be perfect. But I don't feel like I will know until that point. Perhaps I am just hopeless at shopping!
Anyway, between appointments we wandered into a lovely little tea room, having just opened its doors on Friday.
I had a delicious quiche, yum! And as always, Mum had a slice of cake. Shh, don't tell her I told you!
And that was my day! Oh, and I also spotted one of the drivers I used to work with emptying a bin while we were driving along (it's ok, I worked for Biffa, he was meant to be doing that!) We stopped to say hello and managed to cause a bit of a tail back in the process! Whoops!
I still get excited when I see a Biffa truck and try to wave to the driver, hoping that they will recognise me. Is that really sad?
Don't tell me, I know the answer is yes!
