Okay enough faffing, I need to get down to some serious "research and development" as my old friend and neighbour Ronnie used to say.
I'd catch him stood with his walking stick in the middle of the pavement looking round as if surveying the area.
"What you up to Ronnie" I'd say. "I'm on research and development mate" would be his reply.
He wasn't fooling anyone, we all knew his old legs were giving him jip and he needed to stand there while the pain passed off.
We've been using that phrase for over 30 years now, along with his follow up line "right I'm off to the drawing board now". He meant the pub, haha.
So I need to get on with ideas for my next beginners craft workshops.
I'll be gathering, experimenting and creating and praying that my ladies will like what I come up with.
First up though we are off to York Racecourse to the Vintage Weekend. So it's dressing up time !
