Yes my visitors to the cubbyhole yesterday were my lovely bloggy buddies....Debbi the Queen of all things Promarker and her super cute little missy Faith.....Lyn who lives near me in Westhill and the one and only Anne....yes from Simply Create and if you are a regular visitor to Jacqui's wonderful Aladdin's cave of delicious crafty goodies...you will know Anne...Jacqui's lovely assistant.......they are all just the nicest sweetest girls and we had an absolute ball....sitting outside soaking up the glorious weather.
Debbi had told me that Faith was longing to meet Buddy but I think she got more than she bargained for...probably didn't imagine how big he was and although he has the sweetest nature...he has not yet grasped the social etiquette of greeting visitors....so poor Faith was knocked over quite a few times until his excitement wore off and they became the best of buddies.
Lyn and Anne then arrived and we got stuck into coffee and yummies and doesn't time fly when you are in such good company.....Debbie and Faith set off to have lunch at Grandma's house and the rest of us got our chops round the gorgeous strawberries merinques and double cream that Anne brought....sorry Debbi....and I wasn't sharing the yummy chocs from Lyn...they are just for me to guzzle the next time I am snuggled up on the sofa watching a good film.
Crafty visitors could become my new passion but hey it would be murder on the old spare tyre....but I do suspect that they really came to visit the infamous cubbyhole but because the weather was so glorious....we sat outside all day chat...chat...chatting and only spent about the last 10 minutes in that hallowed place before Lyn had to dash off and do the school run. I promise that next time that I will lock you all in and you can play until your heart's content.
Boy oh boy all that chatting is a tiring business and by the time The Budster and I returned from our stroll late in the afternoon the weather had turned hot and sticky....we were cream crackered....time for a quick flop on the sofa for forty winks.....how can sitting down and speaking be so exhausting. And I leave you with a sneaky peek.....made under pressure and at super lightning speed last night.
is that sandpaper you see......well pop back tomorrow and find outAnd true to form with our British weather we never get two days the same....the sun has disappeared....it's windy..a little bit chilly and very overcast....so it looks like a cubbyhole day...catch up with you all tomorrow for another fabby challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.
