I never got around to blogging all last week, so here is HUGE catch-up of Our Space prompts!

Monday - Fake
Nowhere NEAR as good as the real thing, but ok in an emergency! :-)

Tuesday - Empty

Wednesday - Loose
Some annoyingly loose stitches. I will have to rip it out and start again!

Thursday - Vertical
Quite a few verticals in this one!

Friday - Melt

Saturday Free for All
I love the raindrops on the blades of grass.

Show-Off Sunday
I saw this beauty this morning!

Finally, on to today ...... Alone
This fly was just having a rest, I think! No flowers were nearby and no other beasties either.

So there we are - I've finally caught up! :-)

Three storage jars on my worktop. Two for biccies and he other, full of sweeties for the grandchildren!

I baked a lemon drizzle cake yesterday and it turned out well, as I saw when I 'Open'ed the oven door!

This is the third day of very strong winds up here in Aberdeenshire and it's really cold! The forecast says the wind will ease today, so I hope they've got it right.

Finally - it's Thursday, which means .....

ZUMBA tonight! :-)

Chocolate - of course! :-)

Well, it couldn't really be anything else but a crochet chart, could it!

Saturday Smile(s)!

Today, a few of the 'Our Space' ladies from Facebook, are having a meet-up in Manchester. I SO wanted to go, but sadly, funds wouldn't allow.

HOWEVER ...... I can still have lunch with them courtesy of darling Sue Nicholson, who sent me a wonderful packed lunch!!! :-) What a fabulous surprise!

Also included, were two packs of Walnut Whips ... one pack for me and one for my big sister, Irene! We are so chuffed, that this is my Saturday Smile photo for today!

Thank you, Sue!! :-)

Black ...

is the prompt today.

This is the only one of my Little Apple Dolls who is totally dressed in black, so I thought I would put her in the spotlight today!

Kerry and I went to a Zumba dance/exercise class last night and on my, what fun! It was hard work, even though I wasn't doing all the jumping (I was just stepping). We are hoping that Jodie comes with us next week - she would really love it! :-)

Perhaps the most famous of all cubes!

I have never even managed to complete one face!

Eye, eye!

Today's word is 'Eye'.

I woke up yesterday with a small, but very painful, swelling on my finger. I was only slightly aware of it the previous day, but never really thought much about it, but it got so painful yesterday, that I popped up to casualty. The nurse had a good look and a bit of poke around with something sharp, but couldn't really see anything. She thinks I may have been bitten by some kind of insect, so she put a huge amount of white cream on it and covered it with tubigrip. The cream, she says, will draw out anything that's there.

We'll see!

I have never been the world's greatest cook. I don't like cooking and if I won the Lottery, I would never cook again.

Delia Smith has been teaching us all to cook on British TV for years and years and this is one of her books. I bought it ..... but have yet to actually USE it!

It's very windy again here today and my wheelie bin has been out since last night. I really should go and check to see if it is still there!

Stones and Lemons

Today's prompt is 'Stone'.

Fossilised fish scales in a slab of stone.

This was given to me a few years ago by one of Tim's colleagues at uni, who knew I loved fossils. I have a few more too, all from him!

Yesterday, I tried making lemon curd for the first time ever. I found this recipe and it was a doddle! Unfortunately, it was so delicious, it was eaten before I remembered to photograph it! Ooops!

Show Off Sunday again!

I had problems with my broadband connection over Friday and Saturday but thankfully, they seem to have sorted themselves out! Not having internet access is almost like losing your right arm!

It's been a while since I've done a Self Portrait Saturday, but that is what the prompt is today - so here's me!

My reflection in the patio doors!

I was at a Stampin' Up workshop today with Kerry. It was organised by Sharon and Fiona - and was great fun!
Thanks ladies and I can't wait till the next one!

Dear old Elvis - still my constant companion in the garden, despite being quite old and frail now.

I found the remains of this weed and thought it looked interesting! I have no idea what it is/was though!

I could stand all day, just watching the laundry blowing in the wind!

I watched the final part of 'The Deep' last night and I was completely underwhelmed. It didn't bother answering quite a few questions but truth be told, by the end, I didn't particularly care! IMHO, one of the BBC's poorer efforts.
