A day of one's own: Playing hooky



I've had a lovely lazy day scrapping today which is a nice contrast from the hectic amounts of work going on at school. I really wanted to get some done partly because I printed some photos that I love and partly because it's nearly time for Shimelle's new class! These LOs are pictures of me, my mum and my grandma, pictures all taken at arm's length by my artful hand, and I really love them. Still working with October Afternoon because I love them and am consequently reduced to hunting for fragments of left-over Fly a Kite in my box of scraps that are roughly the size of a five pence piece. I'm saving my Thrift Shop for the summer, come on willpower, but the Fly a Kite range is history. Must order some more.

I've actually got the day off tomorrow - it's called an occasional day apparently - so I'm going to London it up a little bit, do breakfast with a friend, visit Cath Kidston for a little treat (or even a big treat?), go to the cinema, peruse Covent Garden and then head back home to scrap! I love days that are totally mine to dispose of as I wish. I get a rush of freedom and independence which is clich├ęd but that's how I feel. And it has the extra smug factor as everyone else is at work. I feel a bit like I'm skiving. Good feeling.

Plus all week I've been budgeting for and planning my summer. No proper holiday this year what with trying to get on the property ladder, but plenty of planned excursions to look forward to! More in the future.

To finish off, I wanted to commit to posting all my LOs from the new class here. And I look forward to seeing LOs from other class members. Funtimes!!!
