Anyone For A Swap?

Hasn't it just been a horrible day weather wise ? Now I absolutley don't like and would even go as far as to say hate being stuck in the house all day so to say I've been a bit tetchy today is an understatement, plus it's Hubs last day of holidays and we,ve really enjoyed having him at home for the past few weeks so we are going to miss him big style.
Our back yard even got flooded


Baby G didn't mind the weather though


he was just looking forward to the pizza that Hub and Milo were making for the boys tea


Magazines - I love magazines and the ones I like best of all are these - can you see what they all have in common?


So when I saw that this magazine was out already and I wouldn't be able to read it I was a bit disappointed


Then I had an idea - a magazine swap . It wouldn't involve making anything, just popping to a newsagents picking up a magazine and sending it to someone in another part of the world and in return you would recieve a magazine from them. It doesn't even have to be a Christmas magazine , you could decide with your partner what type you would like and when you'd like to recieve it. Now bearing in mind I've never even taken part in a swap before never mind organised one so please let me know if anyone would be interested and I'll organise partners.

So on that note I'll leave you all to have a think and I'm going to go and try and sew this together


and also to eat Kleftiko that's been slow cooking in the oven for the past 5 hours!!
