OUCH! THAT HURT!

I fell off the stash wagon today and it bloody hurt. I didn't realise it was so high. LOL. More about that later.


We've had a great day today. I was greeted with a dozen red roses when we went downstairs for breakfast this morning. It was a lovely surprise, but it means that Craig is sneakier than I thought he was. He arranged all this last week over the phone. But hey, I MADE IT TO SEVEN YEARS! WOOHOO! This is my third marriage and I've never made it this long before, although the first two did get to over six years. So definitely something to celebrate.
Yesterday when we were out and about we spotted these cute tshirts, so we had to buy them for Keely. She can wear the Grandma one now cos it's the right size, but she'll have to wait a bit for the Grandad one as it's a bit bigger. Kate is gonna love 'em. LOL.
After breakfast today we got in the car and headed off to The Nimble Thimble near Oswestry in Shropshire, where I fell off the stash wagon with a huge thud. Kathy will kill me. But I don't care. I'm always lecturing her about buying stash but I can't now. Ah well...
Here's what I bought myself -

And Craig bought me this Drawn Thread chart for my anniversary present. There are another 9 parts to this and he says he'll buy me the other parts as and when I need them. This first part contains most of the threads and some linen, but I'll probably change the linen to evenweave as I don't like linen. It has loads of different stitches in it and I'm quite looking forward to starting it. But I probably won't just yet, I'd rather get some other stuff done first.

Anyway, after the needlework shop, we headed over to Stockport to visit Karen. Her blog is Little Cat Blogs in the list on the right. Poor little Riley wasn't well, bless him, but he showed us all his toys anyway before going for a nap.

We're now back in the B&B watching the rugby before we go out for dinner in about an hour. The pub we ate in the other night is doing a special Valentine menu and we haven't eaten since breakfast so we're both looking forward to it.

Hope everyone else is having a great day.

Hey Jacqui! What a great stash haul! I especially love the reading, writing, stitching one. And I had to laugh at the L*K as that one just came in the mail for me! Sounds like you had a lovely visit with Lynn and a great Valentine's Day. Cheers!
