It's sneaky peek time again

Morning's been a busy start to the week nailing lots of stuff that is not shareable just yet and you know what they say about all work and no play so the plan was to take some time off yesterday for an afternoon of fun and games at Brodie's school sports but it would all be dependent on the there's a surprise.  First thing...the sun was shining and they were ON...then it rained and they were OFF...then come lunchtime they were back ON again...crikey speak about not knowing if you're coming or going.  No way was I repeating the Garden Scotland lack of suitable clothing faux pas so I loaded up the car with enough all weather clothing to kit out an Arctic Expedition and guess what...the sun put in a very welcome appearance but of course it would wouldn't it when I was dressed like Nanook Of The North. And with all the to-ing and fro-ing I left the all important camera sitting on the kitchen table....Numptie Grandma does it again.
What's on the crafty agenda today...well my DT parcel has just arrived in the cubbyhole from The Ribbon Girl...I can't wait to see what yummy delicious goodies are contained within...
and while I investigate I'll leave you with the inevitable sneaky peeks...just so you know that I haven't been swinging the old lead this week...

The Furry Boy will be joining you tomorrow to share his "Home Alone Crafting Adventure"
Hugs Kath xxx

    I don't care how much they cost - I'll live without ink for a few months if necessary!

  4. Morning Kath, you always make me smile with your tales. Glad you managed the sports day. A pity there no pictures. It's the sort of thing I would do. Have a good day. Love and Hugs x Chris B

  5. Ah, I can so sympathise with you! Drove 30 miles yesterday to see GS in cricket match, took him for a little snack, no coats, came out - torrential rain, soaked to the skin and cricket called off! Wish I had gone as Nanook now......great sneak peeks, I love Christmas and I love your tales!!

  6. Oh Kath those sneek peeks look to me to be the dreaded xmas !! I havent even started them yet im at the coos tail just now cant seem to get out of the bit. Aud x

  7. Shame about the camera but at least the rain held off for you all. Can't wait to see what was in that yummy pink tissue paper!

  8. some of your sneaky peeks look suspiciously like errm Christmas! gorgeous colours, sorry you forgot your camera but at least you didn't get cold this time! hugs Karen x

  9. Looks like Christmas at your house! I hope the weather is not following suit for you ...... Hugs, Lin

  10. Hi Kath, these colours look really nice and it looks like an early christmas card there. Glad the sun came out, our sports day has yet to take place and no doubt we will be sitting frozen to death for a couple of hours. The joys of living so close to the North Sea.

  11. Looks interesting as usual Kath.

    Yes yesterday was a bit changeable wasn't it. Our WRI evening out was to the Loch of Strathbeg for a talk. Anyone who knows me will tell you I don't do birds but it was quite interesting looking through the binoculars to see what was around. We were all interested in the horses that can live on very boggy ground without getting sore hooves and keep the vegetation under control for the benefit of the birds. It was a beautiful evening there and tea at the Leisure centre at the Broch was a nice end to the outing.

    Hope your little pink parcel was as interesting as it looked!
