Month in Numbers| March 2018

Let's see if March turned out to be marvellous ...: There was just one day this month when school closed because of heavy snowfall. 270 lengths of the pool in the gym.  A better than expected total given that I missed a week because of a heavy cold. 15 scrapbook pages made this month.  Most … Continue reading Month in Numbers| March 2018

Scrapping in 2018 #2

This month has seen me finally wrapping up an outstanding project ... some six months or so since our return from Spain, and I've added the final page to our holiday album.  Because, tapas.  And who could resist those cute embellishments?I made a page about The Boy Child's coffee and books remark.    Ferrari: Under … Continue reading Scrapping in 2018 #2

Month in Numbers | January 2018

I find January to be a month that usually drags its feet.  Not this time around.  Let's see how it worked out: 4: the number of pages in the application form issued by Guide Dogs for the Blind.  All so we could apply to rehome a dog who has been withdrawn from training. 270: the number of … Continue reading Month in Numbers | January 2018

Blog Review | 2017

Happy New Year to you and yours! The last quarter of 2017 saw me giving this blog a lot of thought.  Not about stopping (as so many favourite bloggers appear to have done in 2017), but more about the direction and content.  Earlier in the year, someone had told me that my blog was all … Continue reading Blog Review | 2017

December Daily | Days 16-20

Welcome to my favourite project of the year!  Let's see how days 16-20 looked: Day 16:  A fun day in town with our visitors and home in time for pyjamas, Champagne and the Strictly final. Day 17:  One set of house guests left and another one arrived.  Herman the tortoise came on his holidays as his … Continue reading December Daily | Days 16-20
