WOYWW 217

Another fleeting, late night (well, early morning really) WOYWW post from me this week.
 
My word, the summer holidays are busy! We've spent all day today out having a playdate at a friend's house. Tomorrow we're meeting friends in the morning and going off to a soft play in the afternoon. Friday we're invited to lunch at another friend's house... how is it that my kids have a better social life than I do?!! ;)
 
I've also made plans for the kids and I to have a short break next week at my mum's in North Wales - summer holidays at grandma's house at the seaside! Yay! - and we've also booked a family week away in Scotland at the end of August. All of which means I've got to crack on and try and get ahead on my DT commitments!
 
So that's what I've been working on tonight:
 
 
I've finished up one in-progress card and made another card from scratch. Of course, I can't show you them yet but you can see on my desk that I've been painting with Distress Inks. :)
 
I'm also struggling a bit to concentrate fully on my crafting this week cos I'm in full-blown geeky fangirl overdrive atm since a very lovely friend has offered to babysit this weekend (having a babysitter is a very rare occurrence for hubby and I as we have no family nearby) so that hubby and I can go to the cinema together... to go and see The Wolverine! :)
 
I am *such* a Wolverine fangirl and the new movie looks absolutely freaking awesome and I just cannot *wait*. Seriously, I am counting down the days till Saturday.
 
So that's me and my desk for this week. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fab Wednesday.
 
P.S. Please do not be surprised if my WOYWW next week consists mostly of fangirly blethering about The Wolverine! :lol:

Love that you admit you are a fangirl of Wolverine. I've never seen any of those movies, but I haven't been to a movie theater this century (and that's the honest truth!). I hope you enjoy the movie. I'm sure you will and are counting the days.

I love that you are a Wolverine fan, so I'm I. I'm a Marvel superhero fan. Me and hubby saw the movie last Friday, LOVED IT.

Can't wait to see the new Wolverine movie, I've seen them all over and over.
Sounds like your enjoying your family. Just think if 1/2 of us all lived as close as your kids' friends how busy YOU would be..LOL

How do you paint with Distress Ink pads? You sound like you have a very full card. You have some fun vacations planned. I sooo wanna see the Wolverine. I almost posted a very HOT HOT picture of Hugh Jackman on the cover of some magazine as the Wolverine on my WOYWW post this week. But I just had too many other pics. Well I hope you have a great week. (((HUGS)))

How well I remember that feeling that the kids had a better social life than me! Glad to hear you're about to have some fun, though, enjoy the movie!

Aha, if I lived nearby, I'd babysit for you. It should be the law that every girl gets to see HJ as wolverine if she wants too. DD went yesterday...I'm still working up to my visit!! You need a couple quiet days at home gal. yeah right!

Anne said...

We were thinking what fun a playdate sounded, imagining crafty get togethers, then we realised you meant for the children.

Waving hi from the bears @#78

I doubt many will object to a full post on Wolverine, I wouldnt have a clue expect he was on Top Gear recently so now I know.

great fun desk.

Hi Your desk looks a lot like mine does at the moment. can't find a thing on it! Have fun on your trip next week. hugs Mrs a.

Gráinne said...

It looks absolutely great in my opinion :-) And I do know very well what you're talking about with no family nearby and very rare opportunities to go out ... Enjoy it all the more! Wolverine is a 'slice of cream cake' as we say here, roughly translated, and a great character ;o) Suzanne
