Did I make a dumb mistake yesterday when I told you about Darwin's book! My finger lingered too long on the "0", so I gave you the indicated price of 700.00(euro), but that had to be 70.000. Just a minor difference, LOL. Well, today I read the final selling price at the auction: 140.00 euro! Still not bad, I think!
I went out yesterday, I had too, but got lucky, it stayed dry all the time. I made it a quick trip and when I returned home, Jan wanted to go out to see if we could find a new video recorder. Yes, the old one has finally died! We still have the dvd, so no real harm done, but to have a video is still nice too. For one: you can register more at the same time and for two: you can watch the old videó's we still have. LOL.
Well, we didn;t find one yet, but I think we will have to go to the center of town, to find one. We just need a plain one, and prefarably a very simple one. And they don;t cost a lot of money anymore.
But today I like to stay home, it's blowing outside and some more rain is expected, so I better stay puy, if possible! Gives me occasion to do something in the house and perhaps it can be a productive day in designing. Oh, every day there is something done, but for the moment it is a little bit on slow speed. Although I finally finished a kit yesterday and even did one challenge for the forum. I am catching up a bit on that, but I have to check again to see what I still didn't do! However I can show you the layout I did for a new monthly challenge that started, called "My favourite things". This month we had to make the layout about our favourite tv series, or program, which was hard to do, cause I have so many series and programs I like.! But I made the choice, and this is definately for the moment my favourite serie:
What's next? I definately have to start this week with writing the Christmaspost. I want to send them a bit early, cause some of the addresses will need a bit of time to be delivered. And it's better to have them on the way before the big amount of Christmaspost is starting it's travel! Funny to think already about Christmas, while here we still have our Sinterklaas feest to celebrate. It will be on Saturday, next week. Jan and I don;t do anything about it, although I will have certainly some sweets on the table. There are some traditional things for that special evening, like chocolate letters, fondant(yummie), almond pastry, nutmegs(plain or covered with chocolate), things like that.
On to your freebie, a kit in one colour scheme named "On Lilac Dream Clouds". And then all to do is to wish you a terrific day
