Hi folks, I've been keeping myself pretty busy since last week, as I'm afraid if I give myself time to stop and think I'll be in pieces for too long, and I have things to do.
Yesterday we had a committee meeting to sort out the details for our Saint Andrew's supper dance on 1st December, that took up part of the day from 11 am to 3 pm, good fun though, Home for tea walked Ruby fed her, got changed to go to dance club in the evening. I came home early as I felt Ruby had spent long enough in the car.
Out walking this am then met my younger daughter Karen for lunch. While we were browsing she had a phone call on her mobile, I heard her get a bit excited and had the biggest smile on her face. Craig just proposed to Jade, she almost squealed, that is her son and they are in Turkey for a holiday, yay, how lovely, she is a nice girl and they seem quite besotted about each other.
Back to the title of this post
We are celebrating Guy Fawkes on Monday at the dance club with fancy dress as usual The theme is Characters from books. Hmmm, After a lot of thought with yeahs and nays I've decided on Red Riding Hood. I don't believe in buying costume so thinking cap was on. I've got an old candlewick bedspread I'd bought for the dogs and hadn't used yet, so this afternoon I cut out the cape and hood, I'd bought some poppy red dye this morning, so when I've stitched the cape I'll dye it, that should be fun, Then to buy some white tights or leggings, and make an apron, look for an old skirt from the charity shop I can alter. a shopping basket I 'gained' from a supermarket or somewhere, which I will cover in crepe paper and fill with goodies for Grandma, and voilà, sorted ! Hopefully it will be good enough to send a photo.
Off to bed now. good night.
Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby
