These classes are filling up quicker than we expected, so please register as soon as you can.


There will be sandwiches, cake and drinks available throughout the weekend.

If you are travelling there are plenty of local hotels and if you are bringing family there are venues such as Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures, Hampton Court Palace, River Thames, Family Golf Course and a shopping centre all within a short drive of the venue.

I hope you can make it... See you there!

Posh has a present

Hey Peeps :)

 Time for some gorgeousness from Stamping Bella and this week, it's all about Birthday Wishes. Who doesn't like to go shopping on their Birthday? Especially if you have Hubby's Credit Card. Ahem! *Whistles innocently*

Now, let's talk pink. Who doesn't love the R81, R83, R85 trio? Scrumptious, isn't it? But boy, my poor, neglected RVs suffer because of it. I don't think I've refilled a RV yet. Ooh, I am a bad Copic Mummy. Wait! I have Re-Inkers for RV55 and RV66. Phew, that's ok then. Anyhoo, here's Posh, in all her RV glory...

Fluttering By to Say Hi

Morning :)

Oooof, I am soooooooo behind this morning. Very Understanding Hubby is away at the moment. Last night, I decided I would catch up with some bits and bobs I needed to do on the pooter. So, I grabbed the laptop, my fave furry blanket and snuggled on the sofa. That was my first mistake. Fave furry blanket and sofa. Did I mention my fave furry blanket is a Cat Magnet? Especially the part of the blanket where I would have put the laptop, on my, well, lap. Not to worry, thinks I, he'll get too hot in a minute and move off. Ha. Here comes the second mistake...

I'll just flick the TV on while I wait. Ha! I got completely sucked in by several back to back Reality TV Shows featuring various 'Real Housewives'. The laptop didn't even get switched on and I stayed up WAY past my bedtime. Turns out, as a Housewife, I'm doing it all wrong. I'll be speaking to Very Understanding Hubby when he gets home about a number of surgeries I should have had...  

Anyhoo, while I chase my tail around for the rest of the day trying to catch up with everything I should have did last night... New Challenge at Tiddly Inks... Fairy Happy. Enjoy.
