Five Things I'm Planning

I do like something to look forward to..

  1. A 16th birthday celebration. Details are still sketchy. But that's boys for you.
  2. A 2nd birthday celebration. Alright, I'm not actually planning this one. But I am planning on being there. Especially now I've heard about the ICE CREAM VAN.
  3. A trip into town for some new season shopping. Crisp white t-shirts and some navy ballet pumps are top of my list.
  4. A big Photobox order. Because more pictures means more pages, right? But I wish I knew which box to tick so that they don't crop my images. Anyone?
  5. A visit from a blog friend. In real life! Mel will be here any minute, so I'm off to put out some coffee cups and polish up the hamster..

We like ice cream. Especially when The Accountant is paying.

Heather said...

Fun times!! You & Mel will have a blast :)
I saw an icecream van yesterday with details for hiring for parties & I thought what a brilliant idea for my sons 8th in April - will have to cost it out! Yum :)
Glad you seem to be better now xx

trust you had fun with Mel

on Photobox - do you crop them between camera and photobox? Because digital cameras take photos which are different size to print size. I crop all mine in picassa or PSE before I upload. I have sometimes done it inside Photobox - choose to check each image individually and it will show an orange line where it wants to crop - you can move the line to where you want the crop. Hope this sorts your cropping problem

snapfish now do a print that is the right size for digital pictures. They are pretty quick too.

I tend to use Snapfish as well.
Have a great time with Mel.
Is it storytelling Sunday tomorrow??

Can't believe that you and Mel are getting together! How exciting! Make sure you take lots of photos together because this certainly needs recording for posterity.
Sounds as if you are feeling much better so hope you have a fab weekend!

Hope you and Mel have a brilliant time :D
I use Photobox too and have learnt NEVER ever to tick "Shrink To Fit" - they shrink them ALL even if they already fit for some reason!

Have a lovely visit from Mel! :) ice cream van sounds gooooood :)

Cheri said...

ooohhhh - so lucky! Hope you & Mel had a fabulous time together!

Amanda said...

Looking forward to hearing all about your 'in real life' meeting. I have one of those coming up this year too. Ice cream van hire sounds fun.

It would be so much fun to meet up with blog friends! Have a great time! Since it is so cold and snowy here, I must say the ice cream is not too much of a temptation right now.

Maria Ontiveros said...

OOooooooh! I so wish I could be with you and Mel! What a fun, fun time that has to be.

Louise said...

oh no....what happened to the flakes!! I don't spy any in those ice-creams lol!!

Enjoy your day.

Micayla said...

Yay for the ice cream van.....what fun!
Cannot wait to see more layouts Sian.I must order some too.
Have a lovely weekend
xx

Mel is visiting you... how wonderful! I hope you both have a great time (with plenty of ice-cream).

I get my prints from Photobox - had a big disaster with Snapfish so I don't use them any more. There is an option for photos not to be cropped - I used it last time I ordered. If the photo dimensions are odd, they fit it to the size of the paper and you have a white bit at the edges. I also ask for no border, as the width of the borders is a bit hit & miss. Seems to be ok so far. Hope Helena's comments are helpful because I can't remember exactly where the "no crop" option is found!

The Accountant doesn't look too thrilled about paying for the ice-creams (but I suppose that's what comes of being an Accountant really...) I hope he felt better once he started eating his.
Enjoy the Ice Cream Van at the party (eeee!)

You can't beat a 99 in my opinion. Ooh Navy pumps...gorge, I'm a navy girl too...black so doesn't suit me. Yep, Grey (new black), navy and red....sometimes a little pink and denium. Show us when you get them. I wear red pumps alot, a child at school even drew a pic of me...with my red shoes on.

laurie said...

i like to have things to look forward to, too! it sounds like there is a lot of fun (and plenty of birthday cake and ice cream) in your future.

Scrappi Sandi said...

I'm glad you seem to be on the mend...I'm playing catch up & loved the previous post...thanks for the emntion & also for the heads up on the Gotta Craft Sale!!

it's so important to have things to look forward to & what a nice selection you have...not least of all the imminent arrival of Mel...I'd love to be a fly on the wall & hope you'll share some pics soon!!

Giselle said...

Enjoy your visit (and those delish ice creams!)
Re Photobox, I do the same as Lizzie - no border & no cropping....makes some of the pix an odd size but doesn't stop them from being 'scrapworthy'!

Melissa said...

Sounds like some wonderful plans! How exciting that you are meeting Mel in person, I got in on her pay it forward and am looking forward to a package in the mail from her sometime this year! Hope you have a great visit.

Amy said...

You know ... I really feel that this picture is not a fair portrayal of the dear Accountant - of course not knowing him at all, it may be true to life - I dare say it is not ... so, perhaps a portrait of him in his favourite Swedish shop, or one where he is encouraging TSO in her entrepreneurial endevours????

I hope the visit is wonderful for the two of you .... she says in a somewhat excited but envious manner ;-)!

alexa said...

I'm a bit late catching up on this news, so hoping you have had a wonderful time, the two of you. As people I 'visit' regularly, it's lovely to hear you got to meet up... Did she get to see Horsey too?

humel said...

It was such a fine visit, I can barely put it into words :-) The hamster was at his sparkly best, the coffee was top notch and the family were all wonderfully welcoming - thank you! When I'm feeling a bit more 'with it' (I can hardly cite jet lag lol but I'm feeling shattered nonetheless!) I'm sure I'll be posting a suitably bouncy and effusive account on my blog. For now, my friend, can I just say how good it was to meet you? xx

Sandra said...

How I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall, when you two got together ... I can imagine you had such a blast.
