A fairly quiet week, but still with plenty of highlights:
Postcrossing – I’ve had an even better than usual postcard crop recently.
Last Saturday there were no less than three cards on my doormat, and they were all really cool ones. One from Barcelona with a great photo of the Gaudi park (I’d LOVE to go there one day), one from Amsterdam featuring the (in)famous Bulldog café (I might have already been there, ahem, once or twice, a long time ago, back in my student days :) ), and one from Germany with, rather inexplicably, an oil painting of a skeleton doing a pee :D
Also, not pictured, a few days later I received from the US a fantastic lenticular card of a 3-D eye which winks as you move the card. Very very cool. And a really fab roller coaster card too (my first ever from Australia). And a card with a photo of a man balancing chairs on his fingertips, from a lady in the Netherlands who makes lovely ATCs who I'm hoping to maybe swap with.
You never know what kinds of postcards you are going to receive, or who from, it's certainly more fun than coming home to just bills on the doormat.
Sunday was the real highlight of the week, as we had a brilliant day out in gorgeous Glastonbury. It was a cold (and mega windy, especially at the top of the Tor!) day but gloriously sunny.

|Bit windy at the top! Do you like my combover? :)|

Around Christmas time I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact I wasn't going to get it finished in time. And that would have been a real waste, both of the entry fee, and more importantly of all the time I had already spent on it.
But then I decided I had to get my head down and get on with it, and get on with it I did. And it went in the post this Tuesday. Such a relief :) Now I can get back to all the other things I should have been doing this month, like the pile of circle journals in the corner, and my sad neglected art journal....
