WOYWW #137

I'm a bit late posting today because I've had a girly lunch, hence the table:
The bale of sawdust in the background is a reminder that I still haven't cleaned out the animals! Lunch was lovely, we had leek and potato soup followed by rice pudding with plums stewed in Pimms, all home made of course. My guests were a fellow blogger Fiona, who I am trying to convince to join in the WOYWW fun, and Samya, who first got me into the card making way back in 2004 I worked with them both at Gatwick airport, ah happy days!
Lunch was quite profitable too as Samya bought some of my Christmas bunting and a card, she also wants some red, white and blue bunting for the summer. I also received some lovely foodie gifts from her and a bouquet of tulips from Fee which were tied with a lovely ribbon which has now found its way into my stash!

I have also received an email and a phone call about some work for February so the month is continuing to be good for me.
Oh yes, I nearly forgot I also won a giveaway from Kirsty Wiseman on FaceBook.
I love Wednesdays!
I'm thinking of doing a giveaway on here too, so keep watching.
Thanks for stopping by and join in the fun at The Stamping Ground if you can


  1. I am glad you had a good lunch date with your friends and I love those Tulips, what a gorgeous colour :)

  2. Hey Jacko, you don't waste time do you? Samyo and I had a quick squizz around The Range and I've just got home. Thank you for a lovely lunch and catch-up. Great shot of the tulips btw, but you should have shown your lovely chazza shop vase as well.

  5. I saw my name and thought Wow! I managed to have lunch with you and didn't even know it!!
    I spent my Sunday in the kitchen with steamed up windows and the radio on too, although mine was a glass of red.

  14. Hello Jaki, just managing to make it round to a few desks i missed before the fun starts all over again tomorrow, I didn't realise how long it took leaving messages for everyone rather than just peeking at desks, sounds like you had a lovely lunch with friends and sold some bunting and gained some ribbon a (oh and lovely tulips) Oh what you ate sounded fab too A Very good lunch! I was reading your other post and I was born in Brighton and lived there until my early teens, and still have lots of family that live in the area and now it seems my teenage daughter always wants to go to Brighton because they have better shops than where we live. Have a good day Lou #94
