The Inclusivity of Football

The final of Euro 2020 is on Sunday evening (BST) (I'm talking about football (soccer to my North American friends)) where Italy will play England at London's Wembley stadium. Delayed from last year, the England team's performance during the competition has brought a smile to the faces of the majority of the nation. Of course, … Continue reading The Inclusivity of Football

Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – March and April

In March I chose to record the blossom currently blooming in our part of West London. I cut the Spring title using my Big Shot - I cut each letter twice and then layered them to add definition. In April I went for my love of reading. This was a scraplift from a layout seen … Continue reading Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – March and April

Scrapbooking in 2021 | Off The Grid

Regular readers will know that I don't do fussy scrapbooking (unless I'm in a class at a scrapbooking retreat) and I have a soft spot for a good old fashioned grid design. My current go-to-grid-design was first seen by me on Instagram (look for snap.scrap.repeat) - I can see it being used a lot. 🙂 … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | Off The Grid

Month in Numbers | January 2021

Despite Lockdown 3.0 restricting life, January appears to have passed by quickly. Let's see what the numbers made of it. 16 online Step classes completed by me. Where would we be without free-to-access YouTube videos? 31 sessions of 10-minutes-long Pilates. It's mostly stretching but, whatever. 20,364 steps walked by me on my busiest day of … Continue reading Month in Numbers | January 2021

Scrapbooking in 2020 #18

I've filled in the last few gaps in The Boy Child's earlier albums from 2011 with a few 12x12 spreads. You'll also be able to see what the original pages looked like (the right hand images). There's the time The Boy Child was a shepherd in the Nativity (journaling tucked behind the right hand photo). … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #18

Scrapbooking in 2020 #11

I've added two more pages to my in progress Ascension album. I went back to Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love class for a spread featuring three photos and an interactive element. I may have got a little carried away with the embellishing (scraplifted from here), but I love how it looks next to the photos. English … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #11

Life in Lockdown | Turning Negatives into Positives

I've noticed that I've been feeling more 'down' of late, and even though I know it's okay to feel all the feelings, I'd much rather focus on the positives. Travel: Comfortless Cove, Ascension Island The negative: All our travel plans for this year have been postponed or cancelled. The positive: There is still an outside … Continue reading Life in Lockdown | Turning Negatives into Positives

Life in Lockdown | Day in the Life – 28 May 2020

06.30: Alarm goes off. The Brainy One is already at work in the office. The Boy Child is still asleep. I get up, clean my teeth and have a quick wash. Dress in shorts and t-shirt. Put the first load of the day (bedding) into the washing machine and switch it on. 07.00: I leave … Continue reading Life in Lockdown | Day in the Life – 28 May 2020
