Tuesday Jan 4th and most people are heading back to work . . .
I guess many of you are heading back to work, some for the first time since before Christmas - I hope your first day back isn't like that of my friend who was in work last week but the heating in the building had failed over the break - she was wearing every ounce of clothing she had been able to lay her hands on!
Well, what about this weather then? Yesterday saw powdery snow falling for much of the day. Luckily for us though, it didn't really settle anywhere and I for one, am not even a little bit sorry.
Stayed in because there was no reason to go out and didn't see the point in dressing like Nanook of the frozen wastes and getting cold and wet in to the bargain - more time for crafting too.
Got cracking on writing the birthday/anniversary cards for January so I now have a nice little stack waiting to be posted. The thank you letters are awaiting posting today - being the first "proper" posting day since Christmas although we did have deliveries on Thursday and Friday of last week.
Yesterday, I was given an award and had to share some "stuff" about myself - one was that I used to be a bit of a biker . . . . and, frankly, some of you were just a tad sceptical. I don't actually have any photos of me on said "bike" but here's a layout from a mini family album I did a few years back and it shows my late father "test driving" Hagar the horrible (my mum's name for my bike)!! It wasn't the biggest bike I ever rode but it was sure amongst the heaviest at just short of 500lbs and yes, I did have to pick it up off the road on one occasion and I can tell you I felt every one of those pounds!!!
Hubby was out at a meeting last evening which gave me the chance to crack on and craft with a movie of MY choice on - Sunday night saw us watching "Sptifire Women" because everything else recorded was "for me" - mind you I have to grudgingly confess to enjoying it!, AND he had a point - "Meet the Santas" is not really a very "guy" movie!
