Good afternoon lovely people, tis Friday time to settle back and consider the silver lining and positive moments from the last seven days for it is time for
First up has to be time to craft last week, I managed a gelli plate session and my first ever pallet knife painting with acrylics whilst waiting in for a delivery. My sister said it was instantly recognisable as the statue at Tintagel which pleased me no end as I thought I'd be spending all my time explaining it.
I really enjoyed it, the base was a canvas board, I think a standard stretched canvas may prove more challenging and I'd like to work larger if I'm honest, but for my first attempt I was rather happy with the finished item.
Next up our weekend walks to be the pub are proving much fun it has to be said. With bright blue skies, we are heading out with hiking boots on and walking along the bridle path up by the fields, its a lovely walk and we achieve in excess of 10K steps when we do it.
Next up 6 Nations rugby, we have never been a big sports watching family but rugby is the exception and a national match is always a delight and it was an awesome match.
On Wednesday night when the boys were at their silversmithing class I arranged a meet up with my sister as we would both have been home alone watching TV, plus we had gifts to buy and birthday cards to resolve.
We met up, sorted gifts and presents before heading for a meal at Tapas Revolution, that neither of us had been to before. We ordered a shared meal for two and drinks, this is the homemade lemonade that I ordered which was lovely.
We sat and put the world to rights for a couple of hours before venturing back into the shopping centre. We were about to part company when I said we hadn't managed to get a decent photo of the trip, so we grabbed a chair and after several selfies taken by my sister had a selection to go at, but my favourite by a long shot was this one, the filter literally made me laugh out loud
I got home to find hubby had bought me flowers in preparation of Valentine's Day
Which looked even better in the daylight yesterday morning
As it was also hubby's birthday yesterday we went out for breakfast to the local garden centre
and then in the afternoon we went for our walk up to the pub again (well it was such a beautiful day)
We sat out in the empty beer garden, I was really thirsty so ordered pop as well
We walked back and had a few hours with said 18 year old before he headed off out with his girlfriend and we settled down to a Valentine's meal courtesy of Morrisons dine in for two type deal, it was a lovely evening.
I hope you've had a great week, if you fancy joining in pop a post together, pop back, link up and we can come and visit.
