Sales and such like

Just a quick update to say we are in the Park again on Sunday, that is:
The Coach House
next to Cafe Ambio
in Astley Park

4 December 2011, 10am – 4pm (indoors, free entry)

2 floors full of lovely handmade gifts from Chorley Contemporary Crafters just waiting for you.  Anything you order from us (Paint Pots & Petals) is guaranteed to be ready in time for Christmas.

I think I’ve mentioned everything, please come along and see us.  Xxxxx

The following weekend the Petals are going to stay with Mummy Cupcake for the weekend –

Mummy Cupcake and Friends Christmas Shop can be found in the studio opposite the park cafe within Worden Park, Leyland.   She will be flinging open her door on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th December, 10am - 3pm.  You will also be able to find one or two other members of Chorley Contemporary Crafters displaying and selling their work. 

So get you park going pumps on and come and have a look around and perhaps purchase a few unique Xmas gifts whilst there.

Life -

It's all about the spin you put on it. I'm not trying to be profound, honest, but it's 1pm on a Saturday and I've only just stepped out of the shower. There's that nagging voice telling me I've wasted the morning (not Mr Petal). My sister tells me this voice is our 'achiever' speaking which pushes us too hard...unless we rebel.

So, here is my list of achievements this morning:-

ü  Had a lie in and a cuddle with my boy who woke feeling sick this morning.
ü  Made children brekkie, then took mine back to bed and updated PP&P accounts log (not a big undertaking).
ü  Had another little snooze
ü  Searched for my keys (a daily activity)
ü  Walked the dog (she’ll need another now of course)
ü  Had a second cup of tea and a biscuit (ok 3 biscuits)
ü  Had a quick chat with a friend on facebook and uploaded a few more PP&P pics
ü  Rang local bus interchange manager about advertising
ü  Debated with my daughter about the benefits of grapes over sweets (she ate both in the end so that’s 2 achievement ticks to her)
ü  Decided I needed new PJ’s especially if I plan to walk the dog in them
ü  Switched the washing machine on – must hang it all out soon I suppose.

And now I’m going to nurse my teensy hangover (more a lack of stamina than an excess of wine) with a lovely bowl of tomato soup and squishy bread.

All in all not a bad mornings work!
