Moving times...

Hello, I'd intended to post this earlier, but it just didn't happen.  I'm not at all sure where the day has gone!

It's been a funny week!  The kids both went back to school, and I have been struggling to get back on top of timings, especially with my eldest just starting at his new school.  He looks so grown up in his new uniform, complete with tie and blazer, and he is certainly going to get fit, as he now walks from class to class, and his bag weighs a ton (more than my handbag and that is saying something!)

On Thursday I got caught up in the aftermath of the Sheppey Crossing accident.  I drive across it every working day, and it certainly was very sobering to see so many cars, vans, lorrys and motorbikes all smashed into one another like that, thankfully no one was killed, and my thoughts and prayers go out to anyone injured and their families.

I wasn't perhaps in the best of mindsets to go to Silverstone yesterday with the race team I help out with at weekends.  We weren't expecting much as it's a big old circuit, and a little tiny classic Mini was going to be outrun by pretty much everyone, and we thought we'd be last in class.  Just shows how wrong you can be, as ended the day with a 2nd in class/11th overall, then a 1st in class, 4th overall and a new lap record... which just goes to show that things don't always turn out as you expected.  There will be a video lurking on You-Tube at some point I expect, but it takes forever to upload!

Anyway, I guess I should share a card, as it's been a while!

One of my colleagues moved into her new house on Friday - it's her first home on her own with her Daughter, and I wanted to send her something to wish her well

It's not that fussy, but I like it :-D.  There are some subtle things in there, like a compass (it was on the Bo Bunny "Weekend Market" paper, and seemed like it was meant to be).  The compass pointer swivels and is a TH clock hand thingy)  I cut up a second sheet and 3D'd the world on foam pads, much to the horror of one of the ladies from craft club who goes pale whenever I get the scissors out and start attacking bits of paper!  I have to say I've never worried about cutting into sheets of paper like that

I then cut a label out from Kraft CS and added a few guilding flakes round the edge, and threaded with ribbon

The image is one from a Time for Tea and I think was a facebook freebie called Moving Day - I'm not sure if it's on sale but I couldn't find it in the store?!  I found a few others whilst looking though :-D

I think she liked it :-D

I think that's all my news for now

Love, Sue xx
