Now I've got to come clean and confess that I've not been capable of cardmaking since Monday 'cos we had a trip to Leeds with some friends on Tuesday which left me in need of R&R due to aforesaid "unpleasant illness". It was worth it though. The friends had never been to Leeds before and the weather played along so that the city was shown in its best light. Good job because, like my lovely husband, they are passionate photographers which was the reason for our visit. There is an exhibition on at the museum by Marc Riboud. It's work he did when he came to Leeds in the fifties. We had a grand day out culminating in a lovely meal at the Corn Exchange which is also an amazing building.
Our friends had been in Florence the week before but they were still impressed. For two Lancastrians from Lancaster they made a good impression of enjoying Yorkshire.
Anyway I'm now back to my usual operating level with the added benefit of a blog of my own which gave me a bit of distraction when I wasn't capable of doing much else.
For anyone out there who would like to know what happened at the dentist's yesterday-I am still alive-just. Oh and the fish from the market worked out o.k. too. I bought a piece of tuna which seemed like pushing the boat out at £4.50 plus some ginger and a red chillie which brought it to a fiver but (and it's a big one) if we'd had fish and chips from the chippie it would have been about the same. I made a marinade and stood it in it for about half an hour then cooked it quickly using some advice I found in a Garry Rhodes book. I'm not a confident cook but it was absolutely wonderful -easy too.
Along more crafty lines I did enter the challenge on Pink Petticoat blog in February which was to create some sour cream containers and I can now show you what mine turned out like when I remember how to attach the blinkerty blinkerty pictures. Don't ask me to format it yet. These are early days.
