I've been looking for some stamps as I only had one but a lot of the companies doing the ones I want are in the States.
Anyway, I was having quite a stressful day which was getting worse.
In the afternoon I had to drop one dog off at the dog therapy swimming pool ( he's very old and I do this as a treat for him. Golden Retrievers just love swimming ! ) Then I had to take the younger dog for a good walk & it was blowing a stink & raining hard. Great.
As I passed the old guide hut I saw that the craft shop was doing one of their workshops in there ( they had to leave their shop premises when the landlords put up the rent astronomically. Now it is an estate agents & we already have three... it's only a village !
Anyway, I went in and bought a few stamps. Most weren't what I wanted at all but I found three I liked and Jamie the owner popped a free one in my bag too. He's also going to let me know when they have a sale of ex card making stamps.
One of them had beautiful French script. With my school girl French & lack or reading glasses with me I wondered what It said. Jamie assured me that our French cafe owner had translated it & it was a love poem !
So I'm really pleased and it brightened up my day.
I had a little go earlier and my kids said of the above one:
" Oh that's by... by... by... that Bloke " !!!
yeah That Bloke
