Hello to 10 Things and Telling Tale

  1. Hello to multi tasking - 3 blog themes in one post.  I'm a woman, what can I say?
  2. Hello to more snow.  Seriously?  Haven't we had enough? 
  3. Hello to preparing for a week of half term holiday next week
  4. Hello to trying to eat healthily this week. 
  5. Hello to husband trying to sabotage number 4 by baking some cranberry cookies while I was at work, which meant I opened the kitchen door to find a batch of warm deliciousness waiting for me on my arrival home.  Of course I had to have one, it's only polite.
  6. Hello to de-icing the dog.  R had to carry her for the last 200 yards of the morning walk as she had so much snow attached to her paws and legs she couldn't walk properly
  7. Hello to not having to do overtime this week! 
  8. Hello to not being able to wear a couple of new items of clothing I bought last week.  You know the scene, you're fed up with all the clothes in your wardrobe so in anticipation of warmer spring weather you pop into Next to have a look at their new season clothes, buy a pretty top and a linen dress and then it gets so cold you can't wear them ....
  9. Hello to remembering that the 10 things theme is supposed to be 10 on the 10th and it's now the 11th - Doh!
  10. Hello to another page made for the Telling Tales course
The idea was to create a page using a washing line banner to tie random bits and bobs together.  My son had been given a couple of tickets to go and see Scotland play at Murrayfield in Edinburgh in the Six Nations Rugby Tournament.  Photo courtesy of Facebook!   He's torn now, does he support Scotland as he lives there or England because that's where he was born and brought up.  I suspect his loyalties may change dependant on who gets furthest in the tournament!  I like this idea of a design, you can have hidden bits here and there and change what's on show.  Simple but effective.

That's a clever idea on the banner prompt. Poor pooch in all the snow ~ if we get any more, she might disappear!

Love the banner!

"de-icing the dog" - love that. Poor thing! (I mean before the de-icing, of course, not during..)

I love the banner idea. I have been so busy I keep forgetting 10 on the tenth and I love that prompt. You were very creative with yours and I enjoyed reading them :)

Lovely page! We had to de ice our dog's paws Monday after the brief icy snowfall we had. She came in limping from the ice between her pads

Your list was so amusingly written, it brought a smile to my face and I had no idea one might ever need to de-ice a dog! Golly ... Your banner looks great with all those items on it.
