Sharing a Cuppa

Hi, hi, c'mon in out of the cold.  Don't be fooled by the weak sunshine, the wind has a nasty nip to it!  How are you?  Well, I trust?
I'm ready for a cuppa and a spot of lunch.  How about you?  I'm just in the middle of putting a engagement/wedding scrapbook together for one of The Boy Child's teachers. It's nothing fancy, I can assure you.  I bought a mini-album from the Becky Higgins range and I'm adding Project Life cards from the Love range.  I'm also adding post-it notes with suggestions of what to include.  I'm keeping it extremely simple in the hope that she will believe me when I tell her that anyone can scrapbook.
What projects have you been working on this month?  I do love to see what my friends have been up to, but the downside is that I spend too much time reading about their crafting activities than actually working on my own!  Do you find that?
Shall I tell you something funny?  That having settled on being more in 2014, the first quarter of the year has been amazing!  Taking charge has been liberating.  The Brainy One and I used to lament the lack of a social life; we solved that by inviting our friends and their children round at child-friendly times.  And we are now receiving invitations in a similar vein.  It certainly solves the problem of a babysitter.
Do you have plans for Easter?  We're less than three weeks away now from our trip to New York and are becoming quite excited.  The highlight for me will be when my mum meets her cousin for the very first time.
It's also going to be pretty cool introducing The Boy Child to the Statue of Liberty, the High Line and the Staten Island Ferry.
Would you like some more tea?  You know, we're still waiting for an answer to The Boy Child's Statement review.  The Panel sat a fortnight ago and raised questions about the provision of Speech and Language therapy.  I understand they looked at our application again this Tuesday.  But still we wait.
Gosh, I've been at it again, haven't I?  Monopolising the conversation again.  You really should tell me to be quiet!
Same time next month?  Lovely.

This post has been brought to you in association with Abi's invitation to share a cup of tea.

An exciting trip to look forward to can't be bad. Hope you get good news from the panel.

That trip sounds exciting. Will you get to meet Robyn while you are there?
When our kids were small we had a close group of friends with children all the same age and the socialising stayed long after the children grew up! Yes it certainly helps not having to get a babysitter.

The trip does sound exciting...and it's somewhere I would love to go.
I know just what you mean about spending more time admiring...than making!!

Abi said...

I've only been to new york once but loved it. I'm sure you will all have a ball. That is such a neat idea with the album. I would love filling one in like that with all the prompts. perfect. Thank you for stopping for tea with me again today Ruth!

Sounds like a great trip! I hope you have a blissfully good time!

And I hope all works out with the school.

Still waiting for the panel's decision? Sheesh!
You have a great adventure to look forward to Ruth!

Such a lot to celebrate reading your words and hearing your excitement, Ruth, though I wish we could do something collectively to move the Panel along! Your album is going to be very pretty - I am sure it will be appreciated.

A trip to New York sounds so exciting - so many things to take great pictures of there!

Alexa has a point..maybe we need to start a letter writing campaign :)

I love NYC - how exciting to get to meet a cousin for the first time. Yeah for getting together with people at child friendly times. So much to celebrate - I hope you hear soon about the statement.

Miriam said...

A lovely catch up Ruth. Your trip sounds exciting and wouldn't it be wonderful to hear from that review panel before you go?
