No joy....

...in getting into my craft room today...

The new social worker was a little late and stayed for over an hour and half, she seems nice but not really sure, I did learn a lot about her and her family.... yet she had NO PAPERWORK on Steven, so time will tell...

But I did learn something today, did you know that people don't go swimming in the summer, I found that out while trying to find some bathers. The assistants in the shops gave me such funny looks when I asked where their swim section was, they all said, 'sorry but they have been in the sale the last few weeks and have none left'.... After scouring the whole shopping centre I did manage to get a couple, one from Sainsbury's and one from Debenhams (oh and a couple of new bra's from La Senza)

....and the reason I needed some bathers or tankinis (which is what I bought), well last night Clive booked a couple of nights away to the Meon Valley Country Club to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. It's a good job I didn't leave getting a tankinis till nearer the time, seeing how much trouble I had trying to get some today, lol...

It's not far from here, but as Steven will be going from his day centre's to Russets to sleep I didn't want to be that far away, in case of any problems. I know they're won't be, but at least I should be able to relax knowing we can get home if we need to. A few people have recommended it as a posh hotel, (OK maybe not for me then, lol)...

I'm actually really looking forward to it, the thought of being waited on, going for walks, having the odd swim and spa... (and not being too far away from home).

Maria, the reason you can't get bathers is because they are putting their autumn range ou, fashion is a season in advance so you have it ready to wear for that season....or so i keep getting told

I had the same problem Maria when trying to buy shorts for DS - mad isn't it?!
Fingers crossed the new social worker comes through for you.
Enjoy your spa break when it comes round - when is your anniversary?
Hugs,

Only joking of course, especially if it is such a "posh", but close, hotel!!!

As for crafting, there's always tomorrow ... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all these wonderful projects to make their way out of your arty attic!!!
