I've also been up to my eyes in other things lately such as this:
Innocent enough little thing isn't it?
Those who know me will know that this coming weekend is my old boarding school reunion in Nottingham, although the school itself was in Germany. And those who know me even better will know I have a big mouth when it comes to offering - and can put my big foot in it - and end up wondering just what I've taken on! At the last committee meeting we were musing about table favours for the Saturday dinner dance and I'd got some samples sent by a company who do some very nice decorated choccies. They were fine but a bit insignificant in size and not cheap. BUT, I also took along an idea I had (the basics of which I'd purloined from a couple of other websites) and it was voted a winner. So, 1,000 dark blue scallops punched, 1,200 printed rounds also punched (bearing a mix of the old school badge, details of contents and place and date of reunion), 200 pretzel bags, 200 labels, 30 metres of narrow dark blue ribbon..... then all the rounds stuck onto the scallops, the whole lot assembled into pretzel bags and tied up with labels - ending up with 200 bags with 2 decorated Elizabeth Shaw Mint choccies in each as table favours. (The mints came in catering sized boxes and are a massive saving if anyone else ever thinks about doing the same sort of thing.) It took me weeks of 'nibbling the elephant a bit at a time' but here's the result, ready to pack into an overnight holdall, pop into the car boot and to go with me when I drive up to Nottingham. I think the forecast is for a warm weekend so I'd better drive fast from Hampshire!! Vroom, vroom!
Yup, that's the little blighters, all 200 of them! But, it's done and now it's all systems go to get sorted out for the weekend ahead!! We've been known to sit chatting until the sun literally comes up the following morning, and three nights of that needs a LOT of rest beforehand...not to mention coming home shattered, ready to sleep for a week and having no voice!!
To check out what everyone else is up to on WOYWW do pop over to Julia's here...but I bet they're all being secretive about what they've doing if they're joining in the PiF fun :) Have a wonderful WOYWW 2nd Anniversary day!
