Last night we went to 'l'Hippodrome' in Vichy to watch some horse racing in the rain, it was a miserable night and could have been so much better with some sunshine. 6 ASM players/staff were chosen to ride in one of the races and this is as good a photo as I could get of them doing their warm up lap. Neil was in the race and came in last, he says he was so behind he nearly came first! After there was a dinner although I don't think the organisers had counted on us bringing the kids, it was certainly difficult to wake them up for school this morning.
Yesterday afternoon, my newest Stampin'Up! recruit Caroline phoned to ask if I could help her decorate some candles for a gift she wanted to give to a friend. It's fun and quick to do and I loved what we did. If anyone wants to see how to do it you can find a tutorial on splitcoaststampers, there is a link on the left hand side of this page.
I'm waiting on UPS delivering a present to me this morning, a brand new set of 48 Stampin'Up! markers. I earned them for my work in the past 6 months with Stampin'Up!. I have a box which I bought 5 years ago and they are still working well but there are a few new colours which I don't have. It also means that I won't be so paranoid about the kids using the older ones. I'll post a picture of them when they arrive!
