back to skool !!

Yes today was a back to skool day
I do love having the kidlets at home but wow does it make gettin around hard work
especially when your DP is away all the time !!
Himself is on a training course all week
so i am all on my own which i suppose is a dry run as from Friday he is away for 10 ish days
mmmmm im not sure how it will all go as it will be the longest we have been apart in 6 years
oh yes he comes home on the day before our 6 yrs together anniversary !!!

So anyway less moaning me , today was gorgeous
everyone went back to skool with a spring in their steps
I have done some sewing
some gardening
some tidying

Yesterday was boot sale dash ,
think trolley but without the trolley oh and without the supermarket !!
Yes i had 1 whole hour to get myself around the boot sale and find treasures !!

I did find nice treasures too !
Buttons all yummy and on their original cards ,
i am still kicking myself that i didn't but the whole tin
i only bought 20 strips ;o)
I got a lovely piece of vintage fabric and some pretty ribbon too !!

Love your new fabric and ribbon. Ooh and your neatly folded pile at the top :) I bet your stash is just gorgeous - I can tell from the yummy scraps you sent me! X

Have you ever noticed that those of us who treasure hunt only experience "Buyers' Remorse" for the things we DIDN'T buy, not the ones we bought? :O)Love your blog, Kind Regards, Sue

I loved it when mine went back to school, but only when I wasn't teaching too...I found that incredibly depressing.
I was never a 'born' teacher.
