Bean Update

As you can see from the pic my bean has been growing very well. I took the pic with the original pot that it was planted in by the side for comparison. I feel that having encounters with giants is now a very real possibility.

It was on the windowsill in the kitchen, but it was getting so big that it started to fall over, hence the stake which it is now winding itself around. It seems to be growing at a rate of about 1 inch every few days. Although it is difficult to tell from the photo, this baby is actually 3/4 of the way up this pole.

Not really sure what I am going to do with it. I wonder if it will produce other magic Zoe beans?

Spinkles, what did you buy me?????????

A taste of Spring

Don't you just love daffodils?
I bought these with a left over Marks & Sparks voucher I had been given. Well, what else can you buy of use in that store? They have all opened now and look lovely. A much needed reminder that Spring is on its way, despite the very cold weather we appear to be having!

Scrapbooking - a whole new world!

I was just spending my lunchtime, as I so often do, wading my way through a couple of card crafting websites, when I decided to look a little more into "Scrapbooking". I know this basically means people who make scrapbooks (and btw there are some beautiful creations out there) and on one of the pages there was a glossary. So today I have learned that they even have their own lingo. For example according to the Cardmaking and Papercraft website:

A "CROP" is a club or get together of scrapbookers


a "SCRAPPER" is someone who is addicted to scrapbooking.

Sounds like some weird cult to me.

However, I have been really impressed with some of the stuff I have seen them produce. I might give it a go!

Brighton Vox Gig

Today was the first Brighton Vox gig of the year. We were singing at St Margaret's Church in Rottingdean in order to raise money for Macmillan, a charity chosen by one of our members who is at present battling cancer. The gig went really well and altogether we raised nearly £400 which was a staggering amount! Thanks to all who came along to support us and for giving so generously to this deserving cause.
