Hello again, hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying this glorious weather we are having. Hasn't this been the best Summer we have had in a long time? So far July has been relatively quiet and laid back month for us which is nice as its meant we have been able to sit back and relax a little.
The weekend before last we had no plans at all and as Tom had no overtime we made the most of quality time together and the good weather by spending a lot of the weekend outside. After a bit of food shopping on the Saturday we headed outside to do a little bit of gardening, although mostly it was just getting rid of the weeds and generally tidying up our bit of outside space. To be honest I have no idea what I am doing where the plants are concerned but they seem to be thriving and are all in bloom so I must be doing something right. Saturday evening was also spent outside as a couple of our neighbors came to join us for a cheeky G&T or three - I do love it when the weather is good, there is nothing quite like sitting outside on a warm Summers eve!! On Sunday morning I woke early so I got up and left Tom sleeping and headed to my craft room where I had planned to scrap. As it was the room was a bit of a mess so I decided to have a little tidy up before I started - four hours and several bags of rubbish later and I finally emerged from my room without having done one single bit of crafting lol. I did have a very clean and organized craft room though. The rest of the day was spent outside in the sunshine, as much as I wanted to scrap I also wanted to make the most of the weather so there was no way I was sitting inside.
Scentsy party for a while. It was in my local tenants hall and I didn't actually have very high hopes for the sales on the night to be that good but in the end it was my best order to date. This is great news as it means I am again active for at least the next three months, plus hopefully my new customers will start to place regular orders which means I wont have to worry too much about my targets. As I was the 'hostess' I got to claim the commission and benefits - cue new a warmer and lots of waxes coming my way.
Crafts U Love as I was desperate for some card stock to use for the holiday scrapbook I am making. I enjoyed wandering around the shop and as planned I got a nice stash of bazzil as well as some lovely new papers. Tom bought me a Project Life kit but that is going away for my birthday (only a couple of weeks to wait to get my hands on it). After shopping we went over to my Mums to celebrate her birthday - cue lots of family fun and plenty of cake!
