Hi everyone

The sun is shining, the sky is blue and it feels quite warm too.  Poetry?

Our plan for today had been to take a trip to Gunwharf Quays: shopping, lunch and more shopping.  However, as it is non-stop sunshine, the day is going to be spent gardening.  Still lots to do and the weather at the moment means we have to take advantage of the good days and plant, weed, mow, prune, etc.

We went to the cinema yesterday to see a 3D film - we haven;t seen one before and it was amazing.  All the blurb you read is true, it really does feel as though you can touch objects and people, and that things are flying into the screen from within the cinema.  Amazing!  The film was the Marvels Avengers - a good first experience of what 3D looks like and combined with the special effects it was fantastic.

In between showers (no rain = gardening, rain = crafting) I have been making cards for Father's Day.  I had planned to have some ready to take to Bourne Mill on Monday, but want to do a big re-stock there so will leave it until next Monday.  I used to have a room at Bourne Mill (as well as my wall) selling antiques and collectibles, and there are times when I really miss that.  However, it involved lots of travelling to check out and buy items and with petrol prices they way they are now giving up my room was a good decision.  Cards are so much lighter on the petrol bill.

Pottery tomorrow; I have begun my second project: serviette rings.  I am enjoying my course very much and the group are lovely and most weeks I stay and have a quick sandwich lunch with them.  Some stay on to do the afternoon session - very keen potters.  Card-making and gardening are calling me, so a short post today.

Hope you all have a great day and don't forget to come back on Friday to read this week's guest post.  If you would like to join in, do get in touch:
