Project Life Revisited | Weeks 35 and 36

Week 35: It was a quiet week, with not many photos. Tilly was happy to snooze the morning away after her walk. We walked in the grounds of Pitzhanger Manor. Saturday night suppers are homemade pizzas. 🙂 Week 36: I travelled on public transport for the first time in 6 months. I spent two mornings … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 35 and 36

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 25 and 26

Week 25: It was a slow news week. The Boy Child had a Zoom meeting with his teacher and fellow students. Tilly had the right idea. We met up with my lovely SiL for a socially-distanced walk in the woods with the dogs. Week 26: I had an appointment at my GP's surgery. I made … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 25 and 26

Life in Lockdown | The Boy Child’s Diary

Back in the mists of time, when school closed and work was sent home, one ongoing topic was for The Boy Child to keep a diary of his days at home.

The Boy Child has picked up additional chores … Continue reading Covid-19 | The Journal | Part 3

One Little Word | Pause – March and April 2020

I'll be honest here. At the end of March, I had no idea how I would record our One Little Word. Ditto for April. And then thanks to a Saturday afternoon spent scrapbooking with The Best Friend, via the magic of Facetime, I knew ... March: It had to be Lockdown. How could it be … Continue reading One Little Word | Pause – March and April 2020

Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 1

We are currently living through something that future generations will learn about in their school History lessons. As a memory keeper, I felt it was important to create a record of my own family's experience. I'm mostly using pocket pages in 6x8, with cards for the journaling from my favourite In a Creative Bubble. I'm … Continue reading Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 1

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 15 and 16

Week 15: Week 4 of lockdown. Nature continued doing her Spring thing. I made time for scrapbooking. We stood in the front door on Thursday and joined our neighbours in applauding all those working on the front line. Week 16: The week began with a glorious sunrise (which made me surprisingly emotional). There was TV … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 15 and 16
