Back - to the land of the living

.....almost. Okay, not quite!

The last week or so has seen an assortment of adventures. First I took my little self to the wonderful Edinburgh fringe festival.

What a feast for the senses. There's so much going on. I saw brilliant comedy, dance, theatre and circus. Edinburgh is such a beautiful city, and really friendly. I could waffle for a lonnng time about my trip, I won't, but if you haven't been and get chance - do it!

After my taste of culture I met up with a bunch of mates to go to Solfest. It's a tiny music festival up in cumbria. We drank, sat about, chilled. Had a little drink!! You can imagine. Had a great weekend. That's the start of the birthday celebrations.....oh the birthday. Should I mention the big, the scary....urgh 40. Yep four, zero. Mother. How did that happen! I'm not 40! It's a lie isn't it. Oh hum.

Now I'm at my mums to spend my actual bday with family, before trotting back to Peterborough and create and craft - feels like I've been away ages!

In crafty news, the new web site is now really getting there, we have lots of lovely goodies, with new and exclusive stamps to come. Really really excited about that. I've also, finally, done some tips and technique clips, nice and basic to begin with, but our clip family will definitely grow, so keep nipping on to see what's been added. Check out the calendar as well, we're going to be popping on photos as well as the bits and bobs that are going on.

Well, I'm off to look for my fancy dress costume! A party has to be fancy - especially a 40th. Rude not to. Any suggestions as to room decorations? The theme is a Victorian Circus! Xx

Wishing you a very happy birthday Leonie! Really cannot believe you are 40 - you look nowhere near that age! And I'll be voting for you too as I think you are the very best. Have a really lovely day.

Happy birthday! Remember, you are only 40 in 'earth years', I'm still 24 in 'head years' and will be for a while yet!!

It feels like you've been away from our screens for months!!! We are pleased that you've had a lovely holiday but can't wait to see you on c&c again!! And my friend and I will both be voting for you - you are so much fun to watch AND you always teach us something new!!! Go Leonie!!!
