Back on the Road Again!

Hi All,.

Well I said I'd let you know what I'd been up to.  Life has been very busy and pretty exciting over the past  few weeks.

I've been to a couple of workshops,  Jacky and I did the craft club demo for Wendy when she went on holiday and I had friends staying for a week so we got out and about a lot.  Fortunately we had lovely weather.

Tomorrow we have my lovely SIL coming to stay and I'm also prepping for my demo at the village club next week.

I've continued with my refresher driving lessons and feeling miles more confident now.

I saw this on the forecourt a couple of weeks ago and hooray !!!!

Here I am in my new little white car.

I've not ventured too far by myself yet but last week I did drive to Loobi Crafts in Leighton Buzzard.  It's one of the places I wanted to be able to get to and after a Costa Coffee break I got home safely absolutely buzzing.

Unfortunately I've not done very much card making over the past couple of weeks and as Anne will be here tomorrow won't be back into full swing until next week.

So now it's off to do some housework and a bit of shopping.

I just thought I'd let you know I'm still around and will be back again very soon.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Congratulations Barb - so impressed you took refresher lessons and have a new car to play in. Love the look of your new baby. If it's an i10 . . . I have one of those too albeit a slightly different shape to yours. I adore mine and I hope you enjoy driving your one just as much.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Way to go Barb!

Pat said...

This is a super car Barb and glad that your refresher lessons are going so well. I had some myself about six years ago and did drive a bit but stopped when we got a new car as I was afraid that I would do it some damage. I really should try harder as it is so useful to be able to do it, and you are obviously finding it good, especially when you can drive yourself to a lovely craft shop. x

Cobnut Crafter said...

Well done Barb! I do so admire you getting back to driving and look forward to hearing a lot more about it when we next meet. You must be so pleased to be independent - especially now all those Loobi classes are beckoning! Take care and hope to see you soon. x Anne
