It’s the last day of June

The day started early but fresh as it had been raining in the night. We managed to catch up with a couple of hours sleep in the lounge but were up and running properly just after 7am.

To be honest, apart from breakfast, I don’t know where the next hour or so went, but we were walking Maya at 8.30 and on our way into town by 9. I wanted t o go to the craft shop and see if I could get some card boxes for the decoupage cards that tend to be too fat for the envelopes. I’ve drawn a blank locally and town was no better, though I was given some tips on how to make my own.
I remember in the cottage I was able to buy a pack of about 25 for around £3. They are available on line for £10.25, but I only want one, maybe two. Plan B was to buy a bigger envelope, but no-one seems to stock 7″ square envelopes unless you buy a pack of 7″ cards to go with them, these being £5 for 25.  Sadly seven inch cards attract the higher postage rate as they are too long/wide for the relevant slot, and I try to keep postage costs down.
I shall have to think on a solution.

I treated myself to a new book though I’ve read it before, but it was on a charity stall and one of my favourites by Erica James called It’s The Little Things. It was only 50p, but I gave them £1 as it was for The British Heart Foundation and we donated a lot of our stuff to them after my Dad died.

Hope your day is going well. Keep safe everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Have you googled the envelope issue, I’m sure others would have had the same issue 😊

    Making your own envelopes is an easy solution… I’ve done it and it is easy if you have a ruler, sharp scissors and a little bit of glue! The only real cost is for the paper…
