A Glorious Sunday

Had a great day, the weather has been glorious and Caitlin, my stepdaughter came over with Jonah for lunch and spent the afternoon with us. Jonah had a whale of a time in the paddling pool and playing with the water rocket, and when he got tired I got to cuddle him while he sat on my lap and we watched TinTin together. It also gave Caiti and Hubby plenty of time to have a lovely long chat about all kinds of things, which they've really never been able to do before.

After they had gone home we got on with clearing the patio and somehow managed to carry the greenhouse down to the end of the garden (you all should have been flies on the wall for that one - quite an operation, especially as we had to get it across the pond!!). I can't get over how huge the patio looks now, but at least it's all ready for tomorrow and our first viewing.

On the Move

Haven't posted anything for a while (now there's an understatement!) but as there is something exciting going on in my life now I thought I'd revive the old blog to keep track of it all.

When we moved up here from Poole to the West Midlands 7 years ago we bought a lovely 4 bedroom 1930's semi detached house  which we fell in love with the first time we went round it and have been very happy ever since. But it has always been a bit of an indulgance as there is just the two of us and the dogs (although we did have the teenage stepson stay with us for a while - what a joy that was!) and it has always been handy having spare bedrooms for visiting children and their offspring.

New Scrapbook Pages keep me busy!

I've been feeling a bit bored lately, so decided to reignite my interest in scrapbooking by browsing the great Scrapbook Freebie website DigiFree at CraftCrave, where I found links to a huge selection of freebie goodies including these great Quick Pages, which I've used to get my juices flowing again for the great hobby of Digital Scrapbooking!


This is a QP from Jenny743 Scrap Addict and Elegant Wordart by Bethany featuring some photos of my Grandson Kieran and daughter Samantha.

Children feeling cherished

Below is another QP from Jenny743 Scrap Addict and Elegant Wordart by Bethany with a lovely photo of my Mum and Dad sitting together, just about to celebrate their Golden Wedding, shortly after which sadly, my Dad died and my Mum only survived him by a year. So this is one of my most treasured photos.

Love is forever

I also found this lovely QP at Lynn's Scrap Attic which I've used to frame a photo of myself  'first time around' in 1976 :-) I just like this photo for the pretty bouquet I was carrying!

Once upon a Time

Yet another Free QP! This time from one of my favourite designers Pam Lefors, again with Wordart by Bethany, and featuring a couple of lovely old photos of my mum and dad in the early 50's.

Each Photograph tells a story

I'm just going to make it this four for now, as I have several more I'll use for a further post later this week. Hope you have enjoyed looking at them and I'm sure you'll love the sites I've linked to as they all have great stuff for Digital Scrapbookers
