Got up at 12.00
Had a bath
Mar = in a really bad mood
Sam has gone to Mallory Park
Phoned Fi
Baby sat 7.30 - 12.00

Did cookery frieze all day

Monday 24
College at 9.00
Came home at 12.15
Went back for 2.00
In the evening got stuff ready for cookery practical exam on Wednesday
Phoned Sam, he seemed ok
When I mentioned about Saturday (ie us finishing) he said he had forgotten all about it ... but he hadn't!!
Fi rang
Bed at 11.00

Tuesday 25
Didn't wake up until 10.00 today
Got to college at 10.30 (how the hell did I manage that ? Get ready, out the door, 5 minute walk to station, 15 minute train journey, and 10 minute walk to college !!)
Took stuff in for cookery practical
Washed up for those cooking today
Home at 5.10
Phoned Sam at 6.30
He said he had just got in & he was off out to some Country Club??
Looks like the end this weekend (oh how dramatic!!)

*****************************
Well I have just finished the last 'sticking and gluing' or should I say Scrap booking class tonight. It has been great fun and the ladies who went were great company. I did some stamping with sponges and potatoes, marbling (which is great.. oil paints thinned down with turps.. placed in water and using wall lining paper you can get some great backing papers).

Unfortunately the 'teacher' is not repeating the sessions and is doing card making instead... I can do that already so may do yoga ... circuit training is on offer but I fear that would kill me on day 1 lol.


You may remember that I showed some of how the photo album looked before I started

Here are a few post class (I still have loads to do as I want to give it to my Mum for her birthday next month!)

This one is unfinished it needs some 'sea creature' embellishment!

I am so loving how plain old photos can come to life with some backing :-)

Yes, definitely do a yoghurt making class ....... tee hee.

BTW, the embellished photos albums are great. I never ever thought I'd like looking at photo albums, a long family tradition of way too many, but yours are different. Please don't tell my big brother though ......

lovely 70s! especially the photos of the beach scenes

John C said...

Do you have one of you in the bath?

70steen said...

DP ~ I will leave the yogurt making to the experts ... how do you make yogurt ??

Thank you this course has shown me that photos can be interesting as they become a piece of art and not just stuck in an album .... I will never just thrust a photo in an album again
I am just looking through my roller-deck for your bros addy I know I have it somewhere ??

70steen said...

NM ~I must confess I do like the beachy page ... I have just added some colour (subtly) to the b&w photos of my Mum and her sister .. I will post the finished article soon x

70steen said...

JC~ you know I don't have any of ,e in a bath but I do have one where I am on the beach naked .... but I know you won't be interested lol ;-)

John C said...

....please send it?

I'll be your virtual slave and do your bidding for a day online if you do.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

My brother is unstoppable. Now it's out with the digi-camara or a memory stick and plugged into the TV - there's no escape.

gitwizard said...

Can I have one of those photos too please ?

70steen said...

JC & GW I am really not sure it would be 'proper' to post such a thang!! I was young and naive when it was taken ......

70steen said...

Gawd DP your bro is really unstoppable he is one high tech dudey....

gitwizard said...

All the better, a self addressed padded envelope is winging it's way as we speak..

gitwizard said...

Love all that photo stuff BTW.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

.... and what's more he's 7 years OLDER than me!!!! - mind you he is quite clever ......

70steen said...

GW ~ thank you :-)

70steen said...

DP ~ so there were 3 brain cells and he got 2 then??

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Exactly .....

gitwizard said...

Cruel, but it made me laugh.......

fracas said...

Holy Frac... the things I've missed!

Let's see...

- GW is DP's brother with 2 of the 3 family brain cells...

- Everyone wants a photo of you naked on the beach (goes without saying though, I think...)

- John wants naked photos of you in the bath... (it's a dang soap opera here... or something worse, and definitely too much for my delicate ears...)

- DP needs free yoghurt...

My, my, my...

(P.S. I think you should take a belly dancing class. I bet you've thought about it sis...)

John C said...

No, Fracas...naked on a beach now. Don't distract her from the issue, please. lol

70steen said...

Dear Frac rofl... yep so much going on in one ickle post .... ooo belly dancing now that would be an adventure and a half ;-)

70steen said...

John C ~ it doesn't take much to distract me ...... ooo a butterfly :-)

John C said...

I'm sorry, this thread got down to the level of your Disco Diva thong.

You were sayin'?
