Hi! Sorry I've not been around much since I came home from Spain but I just can't seem to get back onto any kind of routine. Next week won't be any better as my cousin is on holiday and I promised her I'd visit my aunt (her Mum) more often just to make sure she's OK. Also on Tuesday I'm meeting a friend so that's next week pretty much taken care of!
My daughter and I were in town this morning. We are both trying out contact lenses. Although I've got varifocals I just don't like wearing my glasses as I feel very claustrophobic when I've got them on and if I don't wear them when I'm shopping I can't see any of the blasted prices or instructions on packets! Oh the joys of getting older!!! Anyway I got a pack of varifocals to try and also a pack of mono vision and I've to go back with which one I find best. It's all trial and error. Luckily my daughter has passed that stage and now is a fully fledged contact lens wearer. She needs them cos she just can't see :)
Anyway, by the time we had been to the optician it was lunchtime so of course we just HAD to go to Curiositeaz Vintage Tea Room for lunch. It's a super cafe and is based on an old fashioned tea room, proper refined china and the waitresses dressed in black with white pinnies and hats. It's lovely to see a bit of class creeping back. Oh, that sounds terribly snobbish but you know what I mean!
Last, but by no means least, this card is for the Cupcake Craftroom Challenge Midway Reminder. The challenge this month is Bugs n Birds n Things with Wings.
