I do love a picnic and can not wait for this clod weather to be over so that we can go on a picnic again. It is half term here in England and we would normally be on holiday, we often go up to Scotland and last year went half the week in Edinbourgh, having picnics in the cold while seeing the sights. How I wish this was possible now.
You all know just how Harry Potter mad my little girl is, so when I saw this stamp by Penny Black, I needed it. It has to be the longest time I have had a stamp without ever inking it up, it has sat unloved for at least 3 weeks, while I have been killing myself desperately trying to decorate our new garden room and get that up and running as a permeant craft space and family games room.
But we are getting somewhere, the plumber is here today and I will be under his feet in there, so I stamped this up, boiled the kettle and have settled down to 30 minutes me time. Long over due....
So I have had this stamp set in my basket at least 3 times before I finally purchased it. I love the little painting cats and the sentiment is perfect.
I think lockdown may be starting to get to us all, my dad has had to come and help get the patio back down after they had plumbed in the garden room as it was dangerous with the dog and the kids. We did not have an option as could not afford to pay anyone. He stayed in the garden the whole time though and it was awful because by mum could not come too. If felt ridiculous the 3 of us in the garden in face masks. Even when you do see people you forget what they look like without a mask on
We are all sat here holding our breaths, desperately awaiting the safe arrival of my brother's baby. They accidently found out they were having a boy. I say accidently they had a 3D scan and the little monkey made it perfectly clear he was a boy.
My Mum wanted a card to send to them all ready for when he decides to vacate. So this may well be the first of many new arrival cards. We are a big family after all
