Scavenger Hunt

A Weekend of Ups and Downs

Hello there.

Last weekend was lovely.

Ds and me sat in the sunshine toasting on our steamer chairs in the garden.
Look at the temperature between the two of us.  
We both love it.
I picked a few strawberries from the garden. 
 England won the first Cricket Test against Australia.
I was feeling very pleased with myself for writing a blog post and catching up with others. 
 I decided to join in with July's Scavenger Hunt, I missed May and June.
I was feeling upbeat.

I put my ipad down on the kitchen table and it slipped.......onto the the tiled floor and hit the corner.  The air turned blue with choice words.  Luckily it still works and after quick check of the insurance policy with £200 excess I decided it wasn't worth a claim ........ a 'field repair' was implemented.
Oh bum!
 Lastly I promised you a look at the backdrop that I'd painted for our school production of 'The Wind in the Willows.'  It is 3m by 2.5m,  each piece of nylon type fabric being 1.5m by 1.25m.  We had lots of lovely comments from parents, which makes all the work worthwhile.
This is the 'Canary Yellow Gypsy Caravan' which Mr Toad took a shine to before he discovered the motor car.  It's about 3m tall.
The children were great and the singing made my spine tingle.
Righto, bye for now, have fun .................Clicky Needles.


  1. Wow, you did a great job on that background and caravan, I love school productions!

  2. wonerful effort, very well done, you deserve a gold star.

    Shame about your iPad, the repair looks very neat.

  3. Love the back drop, you did a great job, but sorry about the IPad, at least it is still working.

  4. Oh buggers on the iPad.. I keep mine in a cover which protects it. Good job on the backdrops! Enjoy your summer.. we have our 3 girls here and the weather is summer perfection! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Shame about the iPad. Your backdrop looks great.

  6. Yikes, I think I'd have said a few choice words about the iPad too! Enjoy your holidays, we don't finish until Wednesday. It can't come soon enough, especially with this heat!

  7. Oh glad the iPad is still working! A friend dropped hers and successfully gave hers first aid, too. So glad your school production went well! The artwork is charming! I have fond memories of the productions I was able to participate in while I was working at the elementary school, and am glad you enjoy your involvement as well :)
