We had a busy weekend - up at 5am and away before 6 for the 3 1/2 hour journey to get to my MIL's new flat, to do what we could to help her settle in !
So we had a busy time running errands & I spent a couple of hours balanced on a step ladder putting up pictures !
It looked much more home-y after I'd finished !
Saturday night we stayed in a grim motel - mould on the bathroom ceiling & the bathroom door so damply warped it wouldn't shut, plastic under the sheets on the lumpy bed and a carpet that made me eternally grateful to have remembered to take my slippers !
We have vowed we won't be staying there again !
So it was almost a pleasure to be back up before 6 again & on the road to Manchester ! Much Beloved had been lucky in the ballot to be invited to the Manchester United Disabled Supporters Association Christmas party.- he got to meet all the players and have a shirt signed.
I was on duty taking his photo with each of them - and praying that the photos would all come out okay - or it could have been a long walk home !!
I actually got in this one with Captain Wayne Rooney !
So with all that going on there wasn't much crafting happening as you can imagine but I am making sure that I am keeping up with my JYC Christmas Journal.
A little craft shopping did sneak in !
We have a Secret Santa at work I have bought an "N" to make a "Finnabar style" gift for the lady I have been allocated !
I might have succumbed to an Andy Skinner stencil whilst I was in the store !
And a utility buy - more glue sticks !
Have a great crafty week ! Ali xx
