and it's a typical Glasgow start to the school holidays. Heavy rain showers. I don't have the whole summer off but we are going away for a few days next week. The children have their plans and I plan to visit the fabric stores with my sister.

How the heck! I was a school baker for a couple of years and I had to clean classrooms during school break :icon_angry:

Enjoy your time off!

Christine I work in the city centre but live on the south side. I didn't know about the shop you mentioned but next week we're going to Yorkshire and there is a fabulous shop in Scarborough.

Thanks for the link - I'll try and get over there for a visit. I hope you can talk your daughter into a trip to Scarborough with you. The shop is an Aladdin's cave.

Well ladies I work term time... My salary is divided into 4 week monthly wages.. So that means 13 pays and in July I get 2 pays, one at the start of the month and one at the end, no bills to come off. It is all mine :icon_woohoo::icon_woohoo:
Guess who will be fabric shopping... :icon_woohoo::icon_woohoo:
