Bin Busy

Hi All, Ive had a mega busy week so far and for once Ive been sat at the sewing machine instead of the computer!! Ive been making a few things for my Pay it forward - so I dont want to reveal what I have made until the recipients have all received their goodies. When I say "goodies" I am a bit worried that they might not be good enough. I just have a few bits and bobs to finish off before I can post them off.
Ive done well on the "Freebies" this week. Myself, the young man, the dancing queen and 3 of her friends went to see "Couples Retreat" at the cinema for free (I love Vince Vaughan - very tasty geezer!!). Ive also managed to blag the Dancing Queen and her friends Theatre tickets for a dance show on Friday evening in return for their feedback, and free tickets for hubby, the young man and a couple of his friends to see the Sheffield Sharks basketball team play!

I can't say I am enjoying the dark nights yet. I don't like getting home from work, having tea and then it being dark. I feel a bit "caged". It makes me long for the weekend even more! Ive got a great weekend planned too.

You're so lucky that it gets dark when you're already at home!

Can't wait to read about your weekend plans..!

I'm willing to bet your PIF gifts will be fabulous and the recipients will be very lucky indeed.
Yep, the charity shop lark is costing me money, but I also snaffled a couple of cheap Christmas presents in there today!

I'm doing the pay it forward...except I can't think of what to make at the moment...! I haven't got a lot of time or tools to hand but I want to make something nice...hmmm...

I totally agree with you on the nights drawing in front - after work I just want to rush home and hibernate. I even feel more tired than usual. Oh

Joanne said...

Diane, Thank you for the information, I'm going to take a look at the site you mention. I know we're there for two weeks but I also know there want be time to do it all but it's nice when someone can give you an idea of what not to miss.
