Just a lazy Sunday now it's Monday

Well today has been one of those days when you really don't want to drag yourself out of bed and get up I could of happily laid in bed all day and read, but that of course wasn't to be, yes I had to get up.....
Brought this little bunch of goodies last night on ebay so can't wait until my package arrives I love all the laces and the little embroidered doily pieces I can just see them on a layout or OTP....
Ordered my paper for my tussie mussie so Lou I hope you will like i,t going to start making it next weekend, I did a little bit of scrap shopping this morning at My2angels, Tracy always give's such great and fast service so it's a lovely place to shop  here is the link if you haven't been there before http://www.my2angels.net/

So how have I spent my day,
hmmm took the kids out for a pizza lunch today,
have drunk so many coffee's today that I'm totally hyper
refused to go for a walk today as hubby has said he has seen two more dead rats up our street so I'm petrified to even go and put washing on the line, yes you guessed it I'm afraid of rats where are the snakes when you need them.....
 I also found out God of War 3 had come out so had to rush out to the DVD store to rent it, I'm such a nerd so I think I played that two hour's straight this afternoon, but put it down as hubby was nagging saying I was ignoring everyone lol...
I've read my book on Marie Curie which really gave such an insight into her as a person, I never knew she would eventually die from radiation poisoning thru her earlier work with her husband....
So next is on my reading agenda is the book that I brought on Catherine the Great gosh I love a strong woman....

And then I went looking for items on Anne Boleyn and found her beautiful childhood home, I wish I had gone to see this when we lived in England it just looks so beautiful and you can even holiday in the private house that is attached to the castle how cool is that, but I guess I did go to The Tower of London twice why oh why do I have to love such morbid attraction's.....
Here is the link to Anne's childhood home http://www.hevercastle.co.uk/Castle.aspx

So this week I plan on working on two sets of ATC's one is an Irish theme and the other is an Easter theme, so will get those both done tomorrow, and then I want to alter a pencil tin, just have to buy some sandpaper which I forgot to get when I was out today..... Other than that I'm planning my three swaps how I'm going to make them and all and then I want to start on an ATC book/holder.......And then I'll see what the new criteria is for Project 52 and add that to the list......
Right gotta go and make dinner hope you all had a beautiful weekend....
Ciao for now
