A little random jealousy!!

Today we went to the cinema, Rio2, not the worst I have ever seen, it kept the kids quiet for a couple of hours, no bad thing.

After a ridiculously salt-encrusted McDonalds, it was off to Eternal Maker, just for basting spray and a 1/2m of something pretty you understand.


No sooner had the kids posed for an insta-pic, they spotted their old Teaching Assistant, the one I made a needlebook for.

She did not get a job in Hobbycraft, oh no, she only bloody works in my dream job!!!

I wasn't expecting that!  So now the girls are desperate to go back as frequently as possible, which is fine by me.

And what did I come out with...


New in Echino - hexy bees, new in Ellen Luckett Baker - Garden triangles, Monaluna Modern Home leaves, a dose of the green-eyed monster and the spray!

Linking my little trip up with Cindy and the Randomeers x

  2. I think her working there is the next best thing to perfect. You can just sk the girls any time you want, 'Who wants to go visit Miss...'

  16. Swapping a job filled with snot, vomit, wee, dashing round like a mad thing and playground duty in the depths of winter for a job where you're surrounded by fabric, buttons and thread? No, I can't understand it, either *winks*
