domesticated bliss (not!)

I've had a housework-y day today, y'know, the thing you feel you have to do every so often to trick your other half into thinking the crafting isn't really taking over your life!! I didn't even watch QVC (even though Rosemary Merry was on).

Shopping, banking, laundry and cooking (with a 45 mins sunbathing break) all done!

Tomorrow I can craft, yay! Well, I will after I've nipped out to buy a puncture repair kit for my youngest son's bike. I don't do the puncture repairs - that is strictly boy work for son and DH or my Dad. Ethan, my youngest, is expert at picking up punctures - he once had 8 punctures on one tyre - go figure!!!

Seagull season is upon us. Common gulls nest on everyone's chimney stacks and the chicks hatched a couple of weeks ago. They're now getting mobile and falling off the chimney stacks, but unfortunately they are still at the fluffy stage and one has died already. The adults are very good parents although they can be aggressive, particularly towards anyone walking their dog round here! The adults are really quite big, with a wicked sharp beak, I wouldn't like them swooping at me. Luckily, they don't seem to mind if I'm sitting outside, and they ignore the pugs!

Just another Sarah Kay to share today, (sorry, I've lost the copic recipe for this one too). I'll have to stamp something different, I'm getting a bit predictable!

In the interest of using up the paper mountain, PP is 'Brianna' by K&CO, and nesties label for matting and layering. I've used Sir Tim Holtz distress inks in Tattered Rose and Frayed Burlap for the background.

Have you ever read a blog where you've used the google translator? I was absolutely wetting myself laughing last night at the gobbledegook it came up with on the uber-talented SasSa's blog. It appeals to my Monty Pythonesque humour! Do have a look on her blog, and also on StampArtic - those Norse gals are dripping with talent!
