3 days off!!

Decided to take some time off work for a break as it is a long time to wait till my big holiday in September. Decided to make it a long weekend and took Thurs, Fri and Monday off this weekend. Been busy though  -   Tidied up all my paints and brushes and took them all out to my new work shed :-). I have all my furniture out there now and the house doesnt look so much like a furniture store any more....which is nice! Got the bureau finished...hooray! Turned out really well too so it was worth persevering with the paper on the work area.

 See the finished bureau listing on "Unique Chic" shop on Folksy

Spent most of Friday out in the garden photographing jewellery for my new Folksy jewellery shop

Managed to get most things listed same day, and plan to make some new things too so will get them on asap. Tried to keep my P&P charges as low as possible too to encourage more buyers ;-)

Saturday, we headed up to IKEA, thought we might pick up a few bargains as the sale ends Sunday, but not a lot left. Had a nice coffee, and bought some storage stuff, light bulbs, etc. Just been on the website and saw this -
Maybe that's why there weren't so many bargains, but it was the busiest I have ever seen it in Warrington. Screaming, bored kids everywhere!! was glad to get home at tea time and order in chinese for dinner (all pointed on Weight Watchers!). Lost another 2.5lbs last week making a total of 5.5 :-)

Watched a good Australian horror film last night too - The Tunnel - "An investigation into a government cover-up leads to a network of abandoned train tunnels deep beneath the heart of Sydney. As a journalist and her crew hunt for the story it quickly becomes clear the story is hunting them". Very creepy, edge of your seat movie. 

 Planning to watch another tonight - Gacy House - "A group of paranormal investigators enter the abandoned home of pedophile and serial killer John Gacy, hoping to find evidence of paranormal activity. Upon entering the house they set-up cameras throughout the abandoned house while going room to room with hand-held cameras, performing séances and asking for John Gacy to come forward. As the evening progresses it seems the investigators are not prepared for the horror still within the house.
Right, nearly 9pm (movie time), going to go look out some popcorn!  I'm headed to Manchester Arena next Saturday morning to see Batman Live! Starts at 11am so will hopefully get a chance to head to the shops after (my reward for driving us up, and chumming Russell ;-) )

Have a good week!!
