Gallivanting Again

Morning the time you read this I should be off on another gallivant.....Ikea this time....I am having a real treat this weekend....2 days I have been allowed out of the cubbyhole...will have to burn the midnight oil somewhat to catch up with the schedule....but hey will worry about that later in the week.
I just had the best morning yesterday....the weather was absolutely glorious and I set off to drive the 20 miles to Alford.....a small town set amongst the rolling hills of Aberdeenshire.....gobsmacking and what a surprise.....gorgeous gorgeous designer craft shop...all Pink and Black.......very swish and modern.....SIMPLY CREATE owned by the lovely Jacqui and little did I realise it was a  Jacqui that I know and no sooner stepped in the door and guess who had beat me to lovely bloggy bud Debbi....already filling her basket.      Oh I think we died and went to heaven.... just wanted everything......Penny Blacks.....Hero Arts.....gorgeous gorgeous papers and embellies....the two of us were like bees around a honey pot.   I stupidly went thinking there is nothing I am needing....just going for a look.....well how naive was I......and believe me we came out a great deal poorer but happy as Larry.     A little saunter down the street and into the nearest coffee shop for a well earned drink and a blether......and lots of laughs......I just had the best time and you know crafting can be a very solitary was great to escape for a while and do what I enjoy even more than was great to meet up with Debbi again...she is just the sweetest bloggy bud and we are planning to do it all again sometime soon and if you are reading this Dawn....this will be our outing when you come to visit.   So if you live anywhere near this gorgeous little crafty cavern......get yourselves over there....I promise you won't be disappointed and Jacqui will make you so welcome....she is just the loveliest sweet gal.
Now Oliver is coming to spend the day tomorrow with definitely a NO CRAFTING DAY...but I will try to schedule something to keep you amused until I am back in the swing on Tuesday....that is...if I haven't taken off to Alford again....well maybe not this week.....don't think the crafty stash purse can afford it.....toodle..oo for now.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

Hi Kathi
nice to read that your such a beautiful day had!
A pity that I live so far away and not even with you as a beautiful day to spend together can be!
I wish you have nice Pentecostal days!
I hope I had understood everything correctly, because my English is not so good?
Big hugs Gisela

When my new copy of SC&P arrived I noticed the advert for Simply Create & had a sneaky feeling that you would be on cloud 9 with a huge smile on your face... glad you had a fun time out.

Hope you also have a great day at Ikea & no doubt you will be back with some form of storage or something... lol...

Big hugs

It sounds like you had a really great day and laughter is always a good medicine so you should be on top of the world today for another great one with Oliver.
