Summertime Blues

Its been a strange few days..not quite sure why though.

Maybe its the fact that everyone is so engrossed in OLYMPICS stuff & I’m not really a sports fan? ( Is it over yet?!)

Even on a trip to the London Studios to see Gino & Mel do Christmas. ( Yeah, I know its August, but in tv-land, it was 12th December..) Mr-warm-up-guy was definitely a sports fan! …I just wanted to watch Gino cook – Christmas Breakfast and Crispy Potatoes and Roast Beef, even though I don’t eat red meat it looked yummy!

Unfortunately the vegetarian option was to be filmed the following day – my daughter has been a vegetarian since moving to uni in Canterbury, and the cousin I went along to the studios with has been a vegetarian for about 20 years.

I seem to have hit a creativity block, does that even make sense? So that doesn’t help either…feeling a bit blurgh! (that’s my daughter speaking) but I just have to pull my socks up and get on with it! (Thats my mother there..)

So this coming week I’ll mostly be locked up at home crafting like crazy!..

I have however been ever-present on Facebook & Twitter, so I have been networking and therefore don’t feel too bad!

Thank you to all the lovely crafty followers on my Facebook page HopeLovesJohnnie!

London Studios

It’s Christmas!



Picture this…

Last day at work for this school year…it’s been ultra manic this term – so much going on, not just at school but at home ( Brockley ) and away ( Canterbury, where my daughter lives during term time ) and with both my part-time ( pays some of the bills ) job – in Primary School, and also HopeLovesJohnnie – where I get to play & create lots and lots and lots!

Someone has just asked me to list something on eBay for them, as they don’t have an eBay account or a PayPal one. Me being me I said No Problem, just email me a picture and details, price, postage etc and I will do this for you…

I just got a text sent to my phone ( picture) of the item I said I would list…no details, or price, or what they would expect for post and packing…and the item?…Still in a huge cardboard box!  I can’t even see it, at all! Seriously?

Was I speaking in a different language when we discussed this earlier?

This is from a fairly intelligent person, too! ..

On the subject of pictures, I saw this earlier on Twitter.
