Rainy Days and Visitors

In spite of my best intentions, an episode of Poirot that I had not seen before sucked me in last night and robbed me of my creating time. I love all those Agatha Christie books and shows and Poirot especially. All that Art Deco glamour... I am still making headway with Project Life but a rainy morning here has put paid to any Mummy time.

We have a busy week ahead. I have an old friend visiting for a few days (starting tomorrow) on her way to Europe for a three month holiday. I am also having a catch up on Saturday with an old workmate/friend who I have not seen for several years. We might also have Scarlett's surrogate Japanese grandparents staying for the weekend so there may not be a lot happening creatively but I think there could be plenty of memory making going on.

 Did anyone else get excited seeing the first sneaks of Amy Tangerine's new release paper line?

How cute is that woodgrain paper? There are some beautiful Thickers and stickers too. Check out her blog for all the goss. I have really used and used her last two collections .They are just so incredibly versatile so this is one collection I will be staking out my LSS for.

Well, I am off to dry some of our clothes from this morning. Scarlett and I had a marathon puddle splashing competition downstairs in the torrential rain. We both got soaked in spite of our umbrellas but it succeeded in curing us both of our earlier bad moods. There really is some truth in just adding water to cranky kids!
