31 Day Blog challenge - day 22

So, for some reason this post had been sitting as a draft and didn't "post" on day 22, but in actual fact it was one of my favourite ones to do, so I am a little bit happy to save it till last.

When I started this challenge, it was intended to be a bit of light entertainment for me, and I didn't foresee how emotionally difficult I would find some of the days. That said, I have roared with laughter at some of the responses and I've learned some fantastic things about my lovely blog friends too,  so, thank you for joining me!

anyway back to day 22............

"10 favourite songs"

Sooo many faves, so this is a tough day for me. However, and in my particular order:

  • either Journey or Glee cast.....Don't stop believing
  • James......Sit down
  • Train.....Drops of Jupiter
  • Vance Joy.....Riptide
  • Mumford & sons.....I will wait
  • Temper trap....sweet disposition
  • U2.....All I want is you
  • The Killers......Mr Brightside
  • The Pogues and Kirsty McColl.....Fairytale of New York
  • Take That.......Rule the World
  • Let it Go.....from the Disney movie Frozen
  • Geronimo.....Sheppard
Ok, I know its not 10....but I just couldn't bring myself to offload anymore songs!

31 day blog challenge - day 31

"weird quirk of mine"

What just the one???

Ok, well I can barely get through the day without saying "Oh my Giddy Aunt" at least a dozen times. I also have my own words for things, like lids are "liddy-tops", remote controls are "telly box buttons" and I am currently talking to you all via the "wibbly, wobbly web"

I am also particular about the way I eat certain foods, I call it quirky, my hubby calls it fussy!!!

Easel-ly does it!

 Hello there and thank you so much for stopping by today.....hope this week is treating you well.
I am enjoying a few days "home alone", well I say alone but obviously its me, two kids, two dogs and the cat, but y'know what I mean! My Mum decided to scatter some of my Dads ashes on Culloden Moor in the North of Scotland (this was of great interest to him) and my hubby decided to chaperone as his daughter is due to go into labour at any moment. After everything that has been going on recently, this is welcome break for me too! Not least because I'm spending a little more time at my craft desk then I otherwise might!
Decided to print off an old favourite for todays card
todays card features:
  • Gilly from Prairie Fairy coloured with Promarkers
  • papers are magazine freebie from Nitwit
  • dies used are Spellbinders circle and lacy circle, Marianne creatables Butterfly, Nellie Snellen tag
  • Martha Stewart border punch
  • pearls and lace from stash (lace coloured with promarkers to compliment)

I would like to enter:
righty-ho, I've got two furry little herbert's hanging around my feet for a walk in the park, so better go now and I'll catch you later xx

31 Day Blog challenge - day 29

"Bucket List ideas"

Ok, so I have never actually made a Bucket List as such, but if I did it would be a bit like this
  • Go to a Music Festival (camping and the muddier the better!)
  • take a "flight" in the Emirates cable car that runs across the Thames between the Excel and the 02
  • ride in a helicopter
  • stand before the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro
  • Go on the Maid of the Mist boat through Niagra Falls
  • have a BBQ on a beach
  • be a contestant on tv game show "Pointless"
  • visit one of the "big" craft shows like the Nec for example
  • go to a Dr Who convention.....and do the whole "cos-play" thing too!
  • take a road trip around this wonderful country of ours stopping off at nice little b&b's and country inns
  • be a volunteer for an animal charity
  • Pink hair....or another equally vibrant colour
  • to have a card of mine published in a magazine
Now I've started this, I could go on......but I think this gives a pretty good account of my would-love-too's

31 day blog challenge - day 28

"last time I cried"

Seem to be doing that a lot of late, however my last tears shed were actually happy tears!

Yesterday, I was retelling a story to a friend of mine about my boss, and how in a meeting, randomly and for no apparent reason he did this kind of golf swing type of thing. Ok, so you kind of had to be there to understand the hilarity of this but it reduces me to hysterics every time I think about it!
