The day started off really well, we made a trip to Atlantis Art Supplies in East London for the first time. I needed a canvas for my next C&G project 'a panel' see the picture. This is 2 photographs that I took on holiday this year of a sugar mill in Antigua, I played with the displacement mapping on photoshop and a lot of help from reading magstitch.blogspot and came up with this. ( I will update my progress as I go along, promise). I couldn't quite decide how big I want to do it so I had to buy two, and of course the one I don't use will always come in handy. A trip home dropped off the art supplies which I wont go into, but of course I really need them all! Picked up daughter then off to Lakeside on a sunday, always a bad move, especially when its raining it was packed!!
Oh how I dislike Lakeside on the weekends, especially when it turns out to be a wasted journey, we wanted to update my phone to an i-phone, it cant be done because I have just over a month to go on my contract, even though its going to cost us a lot more, what's wrong with these people? We want the phone and are willing to pay more for it, but no the shop was right, when we got home my OH phoned 02 and it just cant be done.
Then we went into the Apple shop OH has been going on about getting an Mac lap top instead of using the emac we already have, I was in agreement, but it turns out we where thinking along different lines he started looking at white ones I want black they are £300.00 more, so we are going to have to think this through again. He's going on about hard drives and gigabytes I'm thinking of how grubby the white will get. I do agree with him that why pay more just for the colour. By this time I'm starting to losing the will to live.
Meanwhile daughter is looking for a jacket and phones to tell us that Yo Sushi has opened up since our last trip to LS, we decide to have lunch there. When we finally get a seat, we place an order for the dishes we want and pick a couple of dishes off the belt as it passes by, we notice that a half of the dishes we have ordered haven't arrived, Daughter decides to call the waiter and cancel them. So not a fruitful trip to LS, well it was for D she managed to buy herself a really nice jacket.
Roll on next weekend Knitting and Stitching show the kind of shopping I like.
Sorry for the rant.
