Well what have I been doing since last week? Not a lot of crafting I can tell you that! Today I will be glittering more eggs in the hope of threading them up later. While I was looking for a key yesterday I found a broken necklace in a drawer. Hoorah, I thought, more beads for my garland!
So here is my table today

Last Wednesday I spent the day doing guilt inspired housework, I washed, cleaned windows,changed beds,polished,waxed,hoovered and even made a chicken pie. And do you know what I discovered? The more you do, the less people notice!
On Thursday I went into Brighton to meet my sister-in-law for coffee and a little shopping. I bought my moisturiser from L'Occitaine and got a wonderful free gift, beautifully packaged as ever but I was too impatient to get into the goodies and didn't take a photo of it.

On Friday evening I went to a quiz organised by my son's football club, we didn't win but we had a great laugh and, as an added bonus, a fish supper.
Saturday broke bright and early, don't they always when you have a hangover? I did the boring things like washing and shopping but I also made over 30 cupcakes for the boys football match on Sunday. In the evening we had a wonderful BBQ, making the most of this mad weather.
Sunday was a very important football match for my son. All season they have been top of the table and if they won this match they would go up as champions. They only needed to win or draw, but unfortunately, they lost. All we can hope now is that the team below them lose this Sunday. Well, they've had a great season and have been promoted, so all is not lost.

Sunday afternoon found us at my mother-in-law's for a family dinner. Much Morris madness ensued, including cigar smoking children, I kid you not.

My husband took a day off on Monday so we went to town and had a walk along the seafront, a coffee and a go on the slot machines on the pier! In the afternoon my son had another football match at school, which went to extra time and then they lost on penalties. We celebrated with a curry! Is it just me or do curries taste better on a Sunday or Monday?
On Tuesday we'd planned to go to the pier after school as the weather is stunning at the moment, but |I received a call from the school to ask if my son could take part in the inter schools athletics cup. So change of plans and we ended up at the local sports centre until 6!
And here we are back at Wednesday.
If you haven't all died of boredom, why don't you pop over to Julia's blog and find something more interesting?
