Friday was filled with the sorts of things a day gets filled with right before a building project and then a little bit more. If you are a Church related blog reader rather than a crafty one (or both!) then my tip is - get a Project Manager - worth every penny. I think I would have exploded with stress without one :)
All of which meant that most of Saturday was taken up with work and by the time I had finished I had no hywl left at all. If you don't know what that means, allow me to quote from The Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru (the big dictionary of Welsh recently published by the University of Wales)
Hywl: A healthy physical or mental condition, good form, one’s right senses, wits; tune (of a musical instrument); temper, mood, frame of mind; nature, disposition; degree of success achieved in the execution of a particular task &c; fervour (esp religious), ecstasy, unction, gusto, zest; characteristic musical intonation or sing-song cadence formerly much in vogue in the perorations of the Welsh pulpit.
Yea, I had none of that.
Sunday afternoon's just a bit of planning for the youth group and then crafting actually turned into mostly planning and a little crafting. I've had a little time today although it has mostly involved a misty walk around Shaldon and Teignmouth. Lovely, lovely, lovely even in the mist although when we walked over the Shaldon bridge the estuary tide was out. We walked for aaaaaaages, right from the top of the car park in Shaldon, did the whole of the Ness beach through the Smugglers Tunnel and back; through Shaldon, across the bridge, on a little path that winds round the sea/traintrack right almost through until the train tunnel stops play at the other end of Teignmouth. And almost back again except we cheated and got the little ferry across the channel. We now have a very tired old dog. And two almost as tired old owners :)
What we discovered was that the really nice places to eat are in Shaldon so we shall do this backwards another time. All of this is 15 minutes drive from our house. Just fab.
All of which is a long introduction to my Daring Card this week. May already! And it was my turn to choose a pictoral inspiration which turned out to be sadly in keeping with the weather just now.
Here is hoping I have more craft time/better weather soon :)
