It's the weekend

I'm so glad it's the weekend, and today we have a beautiful sunrise. I don't think the photo's do it justice, I just stuck the camera outside the door to take them. I just love it when there's a mist on the field, it's so pretty.

I have a busy three days, I will be out to the hairdressers soon, and then I need to do some food shopping, this afternoon I will be visiting Sally. It's so long since we saw each other, and to be honest we've not been very good at keeping in touch via email either, so looking forward to a good chat. See you later Sally.

I took this photo this morning too. This fuchsia used to flower in the summer, but as gradually got later and later, sometimes flowering at Christmas, but this is what it looks like today. This has been in the ground for years, and often gets a good prune back, I'm surprised it's still living, as there are not too many things that will grow well in my front garden, they usually get eaten by something.

As I have a really hectic weekend, I thought I'd chill last night, and just look at my bath! I used the bath bomb that I got off Maddison, and the bath water turned the deepest pink you have ever seen. If you look really closely you might just see all the little pink and white hearts that were in the water too.

Tomorrow, I'm off to Crafts for Christmas, I really love this show, but the coach journey is horrendous. We usually end up in a traffic jam when we get nearer the NEC. The final few miles take about 1.5 to 2 hours! And then we rush around, as we never have long enough there!

And then on Sunday, dh wants to go to Harrogate for this show. We actually went to this show earlier in the year, when it was at the NEC, and I was just so bored, it really is not my cup of tea.

Great weekend plans, so have fun..... though I agree with you about the one your Dh wants to go to. I'd be comatose within 20 minutes of arriving. LOL :0)
The fuschia is beautiful.

Lovely Fuschia! I'm with you, I'd much rather go to "your" show than "his"

I've been to the NEC today. Trip down was ok but coming back it took 2 1/2 hours to do a trip that should be half that and at one point the overheads were saying J16 - J19 would take 1 1/2hrs and I need J18!

Hope you have a really good day today and tomorrow Chris.

It was great to see you yesterday. really enjoyed our get together and have already stitched one of the SB roll charts! Lol! Hope to see you again soon and I will make sure I keep well in touch via email as well ( slapped wrist for me!!)

Hope you and Sally had a fun time and you enjoyed the show.
