My nails get quite a hammering with day to day activities so it's quite difficult to keep a full set going. Apart from being on the ends of active fingers and hands they do quite a few jobs themselves. If you are particularly squeamish avoid reading the following list.
Nail activity list
Scraping bottoms of pans
Picking and flicking!
Scratching back and cats
Picking up very small objects such as pins and needles
Picking bits out of the corners of eyes
Drumming out tunes on surfaces when bored
Picking scabs off wounds
Cleaning out other nails
Pushing back cuticles
I'm sure you can think of more uses.
When I can I like to dress them up. Black dress for dancing this week - so black nails to match. So that I'm not too funereal DD put a daisy motif on one finger nail.
'Diamonds' of course!
The batting has arrived - I'm busy practising quilting.
PS Bets, I totally approve of your daughter's colours. What a gal!
They've finally done it - changed my blogger layout to the new one. I'd been hanging on to the old one as long as possible and now it's gone. Oh woe! I'm going to have to navigate my way round slowly as nothing is where it should be and I have to keep clicking Close to get back to where I want to be. At least it saves posts quickly. I'm sure I'll get used to it. Change happens. It must mean progress! Blogger has told me that it is ...
A clean, sleek interface designed for a streamlined blogging experience. Not only does the new interface load faster, but we’ve also added shortcuts to your most important blogging actions. (Haven't found them yet.)
... so it must be good.
We'll see - roll on the streamlined blogging experience!
Hi Op Shop Mama, thanks for helping at the Tea Party. It's a good excuse to seek out 'new' frocks for you and Iris. Hi, Iris, see you in October.
It was around this time last year that we had our Virtual Tea Party and it turned out a great success so perhaps it's time for Number 2.
Who is invited?
Anyone who wants to be invited. All who read this blog are invited if they wish to come.
When shall we have it?
The end of October will give participants plenty of time to prepare a post.
What do I have to do?
Anything or nothing at all. If you want to join in please leave a comment and I can make a list of guests.
All you have to do is create a post on something to do with a tea party on the day (and I shall link to your blog). For example -
*different kinds of sandwiches
*what to wear
*teacups or teasets
If you look here you can read about last year's party and if you look here you can read about last year's preparations. You can also click on the Virtual Tea Party label to see how it all started. I would now like to formally invite you to Virtual Tea Party Number 2.
I shall be very pleased if you can come and have tea with me on Sunday 28th October at anytime o'clock. I do hope I shall have the pleasure of your company.
Yours sincerely, Mum xx
PS Claire, I left you a reply on the previous post.
