Do you know the song .. WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES,
24 little HOURS
Well on Wednesday we were able to put all the garden stuff straight
that had blown over and got smashed. It was even sunny enough to
sit out, albeit with my woolly cardie and tights on.

This week saw the 22nd birthday of Sofia my beautiful goddaughter.
He she is a few years ago ready for her school prom.
Back in the craftroom I’ve been experimenting with threads and dissolvable
fabric on the sewing machine. This is my second attempt, the first bowl
I made was a bit floppy because I washed out too much of the adhesive.

We are getting quite excited now about the forthcoming visit of
my sister Jill from Oxford. We haven’t seen her since October.
Normally she would have been home for Christmas and mum
would have been to stay with her several times during the year.
So I’m making plans and getting things booked. We will be having
a meal at our favourite restaurant which is due to reopen on the 17th.
Then there’ll be a girlie meet up with a friend at our go to place,
Park Farm Tearoom.
On the Saturday we have a tickets for Grayson Perry’s Art Club exhibition
at Manchester Art Gallery. Our slot is 2pm. It’s very well organised.
We watched both series during lockdown and loved it.
Speaking of art did you watch this weeks Sewing Bee on BBC 1,
they had to make an outfit based around the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
I thought they could have been more flamboyant. Not that I could do any better.
I enjoyed watching it though.
It seems strange booking trips out. Exciting but with a touch of nervousness
We've even got tickets to see one of our favourite bands in June.
Because we know the layout of the theatre and it’s table seating I
somehow feel quite comfortable with that one.
Look at us two, proper groupies in 2017.
How are you feeling about going out into the world again.
Have you anything booked yet.
Take care. Have a lovely weekend.
