HS:MS - 'Lamp'
A device for giving light. Show us a lamp in your space today. Stopped in at the post office on the way to see the midwife (all perfectly OK). It's my local Do Crafts store and there was a 25% off sale on certain lines so took advantage and treated myself to even more stuff. SMO picked up my parcel from the sorting office too, so I had plenty of new stash to stroke.
Made a really quick 6x6 page with some of the products. The lollipop flowers were in a party bag she brought home and shared with me.
I think I may add some journaling to explain that this is the Dinky Diva's favorite dress and is now so small she has to wear it as a t-shirt.
Postie has arrived today with nothing but junk mail. If the rest of my order isn't here by tomorrow morning I doubt if I will use that supplier again especially when there are others that get the stuff out far more promptly - Craft Obsessions great service as always.

- A congratulations stamp, preferably in a cheap little acrylic set.
- A scalloped circle die.
- A Fiskars threading water border punch (but lack of those was to be expected!
Hs:Ms - 'Hydrate'
To fill or absorb with water.
This is the outside tap with the hose wrapped around an old car wheel as my ex was to cheap to buy a nice hose real. I suppose it's lasted, which is more than he did!!
Had a go at some bright cards last night using a kit free with a mag.
Still not convinced if the acid brights are for me.

All was very well with the midwife yesterday. But both shops that I'd been looking forward to visiting didn't have what I wanted - very disappointing. I feel internet orders coming on.
Today's blog entry was inspired by the word of the day at HS:MS and the title of the medal dance the Dinky Diva is performing at ballet this term. Of course I do know it's June not April! I don't know if the dance is to the Disney music or not but it is called April Showers. Small-N-Grubby is trying out for his 1st ballet medal to the tune of Mary, Mary Quite Contrary. Apparently they are dressing him up as a little elf with a cockleshell hat. Please don't let me forget my camera that day!!!
Back to HS:MS - 'Drip'
To let small drops of liquid fall. Show us 'drip' in your space today.
All dripping taps currently fixed, about to have a downpour but nothing yet, so I have had to improvise and create my own pet drip, he is called Harold. Having an easy day today, catching up with a few bits around the house and hopefully getting on with a couple of sewing projects. Might have a visitor popping in later, which will be nice, adult company/conversation. No whining at me all the time about wanting food and being bored - at least I don't think she will whine at me!

Forgot to add that there's 3 hours of American crafts on QVC tomorrow, but Anna Griffin and Nancy Hill both have shows tonight as well. Hide the credit card, I'm going to be watching.

- Lounge in the garden with a long cool drink
- Raid the house for chocolate and put my feet up in front of an old movie
- Surf the web for frivolous internet shopping
- Glue the phone to my ear and ring all the friends I haven't been able to get out to see
The options are endless, the choice overwhelming, ahh poor me.
Whilst I decide how to get the most of my last bit of leisure time here is today's HS:MS - 'Trapped'
To be captured or held with no way out. Find something 'trapped' in your space today.
This is the family wasp trapper, as used during the recent wasp invasion, here demonstrated by Rupert Bear.
## please note, no bears were hurt during the creation of this photograph ##
