Action Shots!


I have been working hard all day … fingers to the bone … and all that type of stuff … in the workshop at LB Crafts taking my Starter for Six Class.

Well … When I do these workshops … to be honest … my ladies are not always all sweetness and light … on occasion they have been known to tease me!

Today … I wanted pictures for my blog … and instead of the usual sat at tables … happy faces malarkey … they insisted that The wonderful Lin Brown takes super action shots … with her sparkly new camera … and I should try the same thing … so … always up for a challenge … and after yesterday’s stunt photos … I have gone for the action shot. Sadly my camera cannot be described as sparkly … or indeed new … and in a card workshop … action does n’t spring immediately to mind … but here are my meagre attempts!100_4379(1)

Note to self … Must try harder!

On the serious side … I had a fabulous time … with a great group of ladies … who never fail to brighten my day … Thank you all!100_4377(1)

Changing the subject completely … I spent last night on a speed awareness course … oops and oh yes … I got an action shot taken of me doing 34 in a 30!

So … nowadays you get offered a course where they educate you about speed. I don’t think they were that impressed when they checked the driving license in front of me and pointed to my name … A little voice piped up and said “actually that is n’t me” The guy said “Two people with the same surname … that’s unusual … you are not related are you?”

“Erm … yes!” came the reply … “That’s my Mum!”. Oh yes … not only was I clocked … dear daughter was clocked too … in the same week … in the same town! That caused a few laughs in the group … I can tell you! 100_4373(1)

Apparently hazard lights are n’t just a parking aid … Who Knew????

Righty-Ho … enough from me … I am indeed still in Olney this evening where I shall be making Artsy Crafts samples with the wonderful Lin and the lovely Karen … oh and eating fish and chips too!

Have a good evening y’all

Love it - I got caught like that once as well but so long along I got a ticking off, but the thing was at the time I was dying for a pxx, and they kept wondering why I was hopping about all over the place - all I wanted to do was get home!!

Oh dear I bet you felt a bit embarrassed. Still you were only a couple of mph over, surprised they made you go on a course.
