I was brave today and decided that DS and I would have an adventure ... we caught the bus (the new favourite, #65) and went to Kew Gardens, just me and him. But here's the thing ... DS was either very tired or is coming down with the cold that is currently doing the rounds … Continue reading An Urban Adventure
Today saw us have visitors in the afternoon. Initially I hadn't given much thought to how long they might stay but I ended up inviting them to stay for supper and they left for their "holiday home" in Putney at 9.15pm! The visitors were my cousin J, her lovely DH M and their two gorgeous … Continue reading The Best Kind Of Day
I have finished the journaling for DS's Scottish album this afternoon so that's one ticked off my UFO list. Then I remembered that I'd promised BF that I'd do a DLO for her Heroes & Heroines CJ ... I've made a start by printing off a photo of my hero, no prizes for guessing who, … Continue reading UFO Update
The challenge this week was to scrap a square within a square. Here's what I came up with.

I'm owning up to non existent journaling for my Lanzarote 2008 album, the last 2 pages of the Lofty Ambitions album (remember all those posts about the … Continue reading UFOs!
I happened to mention to DH recently that I was on the look out for a toy fire engine for DS and just look what turned up today! (Now you know what DH is up to when he's hidden away in his lofty office ...). As luck would have it, it arrived during DS's naptime … Continue reading As Happy As Harry!
Last week, Sib and I were talking about SLYMI and we decided that we should scrap the same photo and use orange (a colour that neither of us scraps with on a regular basis and it had to be bigger than a brad!). As you know, if you've looked at yesterday's posts, I scrapped a … Continue reading The Sibling Challenge
DS was awake twice in the night but thankfully wasn't sick again. He got up at 7am but was back in his room by 10.30am. He was so tired that he ended up having a paddy; within 10 minutes of being in his room he was fast asleep curled up on his bed! All I … Continue reading A Quiet Day
The challenge was to write in white.
We left Scotland yesterday morning and spent last night with mum in Wallasey. DS is absolutely shattered by his week away; add into the equation that he is now too big for the travel cot and you get the general idea of how tired he is. We decided that we would leave mum's this morning, … Continue reading Home Again
