Bye Bye Crafting!

We'd planned to go to the craft and chat again yesterday but a conversation in the car on the way led to a change of plan and we detoured to a different pub for lunch. The organiser had said that she always put a message in the Facebook group if she was going to be there and that others could add comments to confirm attendance. I'd seen the messages for other days but there wasn't one for yesterday's session so we were planning to go on the off-chance that some others would turn up. On the way I mentioned that this would be my last time if we were the only ones there and L admitted she'd been thinking along the same lines, so we made a spur of the moment decision to go to a different pub to eat and decide what to do. So over a lovely lunch we decided that we won't go to this craft and chat group again but will look around for something similar. It's a long(ish) way to drive, and if it's just going to be the two of us, we may as well cut out the travelling and meet somewhere more convenient. 

We called in to Morrisons on the way back to L's home. This is the closest store to my home, I think, so I was keen to see their cheap wonky veg I've been reading about. I can't say I was that impressed with the wonky veg or the store itself, but I did buy some cute baby clothes for a friend's daughter who is expecting her first child in September.

After dropping off L I called in to see Lauren (to leave her card and present for tomorrow) and we had a long chat and a good laugh together. Next time I see her she'll be 21 - I can't believe how quickly the years have flown past. She's the youngest of four girls so goodness knows how Julie feels seeing all of her daughters so grown up. 


  1. It’s a shame when a group dwindles down like this but sounds like you have made the right decision. Children grow up far too fast i’ve Told mine to stop it but they don’t appear to be listeningšŸ˜

  2. Yeah, it does sound as if this lot were too far on the lackadaisical side. There must be other groups in the area that are better organised and well-attended. I have noticed that lots of the libraries around here have knit and natter groups and other such weekly events - maybe check that out?

  3. Hope you find a better attended crafts group!
