Sunny, warm days.
Friends round yesterday afternoon for a BBQ..
Amy made herself and Milly some daisy chains and M and M had a great time bouncing on the trampoline. A lovely afternoon topped off with a trip to the beach in the early evening..
I have spent many hours over the last couple of days searching out different fonts and dingbats with the intention of creating labels for the packaging to go on the kits..Blimey O'Reilly soooo many combinations and although - for the most part - I am enjoying the creative process I am also getting a little frustrated. I just keep thinking that if I had photoshop ( and of course knew how to use it!! ) things would be much quicker and easier. Playing around with word at the moment with my limited knowledge of it's capability. On a positive, I am learning more each day and I think the hours of playing around with fonts has paid off and I have a good idea of the ones I want to use..
Any one in the market for fonts I have found Dafont easy to use and with more than enough choice!
Alan hit the big 55 today :)
He has had a good day working in the garden which is what he wanted to do.
Milly made cupcakes for him with a vanilla butter icing .
We also ended up buying a bed today!
We didn't intend to but Milly has a rather flat mattress - a long story and one which involved many conversations with Bensons for beds about the condition of the mattress after only a year or so of using it. Terrible customer service from their head office...Suffice to say I will not be buying a bed form them ever again. Some of the slats are broken too and the repair we managed to do isn't holding. Her back has been hurting due to the complete lack of support from the bed so today - when she woke in agony - we decided it had to go.
I found a Sealy king size divan bed for a great price online. Alan and I both double checked to make sure we weren't missing something and that there weren't any catches..
It was free delivery and it arrives in a few days so time will tell :)
