No Homework Today.

I was hoping to get the last of my homework completed today, so that any days off work between now and Saturday 24th would be mine, to use up as I chose, you know, completing my secret Santa gifts and sewing and just hanging out! But you know what they say about plans!! There are joiners in the building! They are checking all the doors, adding smoke seals and doing some general maintenance. They are busy bashing and drilling in the apartment down stairs at the moment, they'll be up here soon! Our intumescing strips, brushes and other fire precautions are fine, but some of the doors don't close correctly or fit poorly so need a little adjusting. Anyway, all this noise is just not conducive to getting study done and assignments completed! (Sigh) What's a girl to do? Well, look at old photos and dream of course............

In less than three weeks I'll be able to see this for real. This is the front garden at Tony's parents home, the back garden is almost as big. See why we want to have the wedding in the garden?
Here is a picture of the Lake, behind Benmore damn. Not the greenest of photos, I do have better images of this place, but this particular image gives me an inner peace I have found nowhere else. The day I took that image there wasn't a vesper of a breeze, the water and the air were still, there was a silence. No traffic was on the road and for a moment even the birds were quiet and I felt such peace.
I loved visiting that place and long to be there again.Not long now. Just 18 days.........

Just so that there is a little stitchy content! A quick image of the box I have packaged up for Emily of em's scrapbag she recently won my 401 post give away!
I'm hoping to get out to the post office today and get this in the mail. There are one or two surprises nestled under that little blue bag, I'll show them another day.

No study because of the noise, maybe I'll do some baking and a little sewing today.

Gratitude's
1) I slept all night long
2) Then I slept in as well!
3) A rainy day is a good excuse to stay home and sew.

Hope the noise doesn't put you off too much today
