I have done some nice things since you last saw me! I went to the Museum in Manchester to see some Mummies. I love anything to do with Ancient Egypt. I watch every documentary that comes on TV and Netflix! The exhibition there didn't have much but it was a nice trip anyway! We went to pizza express (mmmm) then did a bit of shopping.
I'm pretty sure I look demented on these photos! Especially the second one :-P My ultimate dream is to go on a Nile Cruise then I can be like Poirot which would incorporate a second of my loves! They are so expensive though that I may never make it. I guess I'll just have to visit all the museums to see all the Mummies!!
Oh I also got a new bike. It is my new pride and joy. It's a mountain bike but its the most girlie mountain bike you can imagine :-p It's been fun cycling around the local parks and waterfront. It's a good few km if you go there an back. Hopefully we can fit some more in before the ice appears! I suppose autumn is not the best time to buy a bike!!
The bike is a little sparkly if you look closely! I had to try and find a helmet that didn't make my head look massive, this was the best one I could find although not as cute as my bike haha!
I haven't had a chance to work on my mermaid for ages :-( I've been waiting for my dylusions inks to arrive (which they finally have) then I had to get some flesh coloured paint which I finally got yesterday! Hopefully this weekend will be a weekend of painting!! I need to make more time to do arty things but I always end up knitting until 10/11 in the night!! Must knit faster!!
And finally here is a picture of my precious cross stitch that I have been working on since August. It's taking me a looonngggg time to do but I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like in the end. I am determined to actually finish a cross stitch before I start a new one!
Well that's all for now folks :-) I'm off to get my breakfast and start my knitting jobs for today!!
