Hi honey's...... I'm Home!

Sorry about the cheesy post title.... just a bit tired and relieved to be home, and it is what I greeted Ian and Hamish (our Springer Spaniel) with when I got in as I had my hugs and cuddles from them, I was so glad to see them tonight! Boy, am I shattered!!

Repeat times for tomorrow are 7am and midnight, so I hope you can watch it on Create & Craft if you missed the live show.

It's been a busy busy time recently and I've driven hundreds of miles, which I'm not used to. I admire anyone who drives for a living, not fun on the road these days is it!! At least this week there was only one accident on my route. Last week there were 3 really nasty ones and I got home to an unexpected power cut. So feeling extra grateful for the lecky working tonight:)

I had an absolutely lovely time with Mum and Pete yesterday evening for a very brief visit, a special Mum's dinner as only mum's do....our favourite food..... and well, just all the other stuff we all love our mum's for. I live so far away I cherish my time back home with them. Thank you both, I woke them early when my alarm went off at 6.20am, breakfast and a packed lunch was ready for me when a came down after a nice long soak in their bath. A really special treat!!

If you are around my age you will understand this... I had to have a fairly cold bath, but, even so, all their doors and windows were open, I turned their heating off and I was still hot!!! Hope you've got it all back to normal now Mum:)

So, early start for my drive UP to Peterborough this time rather than down from Yorkshire.

If you watched the show you'll know that we had a presenter change, no Nigel, but Dave instead. I had told everyone that I'd made a special piece of shrink plastic so that Nigel could have a play, well, poor Dave, he wasn't expecting the challenge but didn't he do a good job!

There were some glitches on today's show, oh the joy of computers, I think we can all say we have a love/hate relationship with them at times, and today was one of the hate ones. But, it's nothing that cannot be sorted out, and at least you didn't have % sold updates during the show and we got to talk more.

I've loved my day at Create & Craft today... I will talk more about it tomorrow and the next few days.

Tonight, I want to say thank you for all your lovely emails I've read tonight and for your orders.

Your support is truly appreciated.

  1. Glad you're home safe and sound Jill. I had the show on live and I've played the recording twice since then and still not watched it!

    I've had interuptions each time so only managed to catch little bits so far but I will get to watch it tomorrow (er later today) by hook or by crook, Lol!

  2. Sounds like you had a fabulous time away all the way around...don't you love when that happens...and YES! I can relate to the 'still being warm'!

    Jill~hope you will be able to stop by The Open Window tomorrow as we debut the new Play Date Cafe Challenge. Our Sarah is a quite excited Design Team member and has done an outstanding project to inspire all!

  3. I managed to catch most of the show, but missed the shrink plastic. You and Kay both did a great job and the cards were stunning x

  4. just watched it jill.Thankfully it was on again-though i did have a kitten purring loudly in my ear.!!!You were both brilliant as usual.Well done

  5. Watched it 'Live' so to speak, even OH kept having a sneeky peek. I loved all of yours & Kay's demonstrations, especially your shrink plastic. It's unusual to see Dave presenting a live show but I thought he did a good job. Didin't notice any 'glitches' and thought both of you toned nicely with what you were wearing.
    Looking forward to seeing more of you both on C&C
    Love & Hugs

  6. Glad to have you back safe and sound Jill. I know what you mean about motorways, I avoid them whenever possible!!
    I thought Dave was great, he just let you get on and sounded really interested, just as Nigel does. I've been out and bought some more shrink plastic today, must have another go now!!
    Looking forward to the next episode!
