Scrapping in 2018 #11

Scrapbooking time was virtually non-existent during the Summer holidays, and what little time available was allocated to our holiday Traveller's Notebook. I've added a page to The Boy Child's album - one about being runner-up for a prize initiated by the family of his teacher who died.  The Cup (it's actually a rose bowl) is … Continue reading Scrapping in 2018 #11

Summer Holiday | Traveler’s Notebook

Earlier this month, we nipped over to Valencia in Spain to see friends.  Along with supplies for The Boy Child's Summer Scrapbook, I packed a traveler's notebook.  The Boy Child managed to keep on top of his project better then I did, perhaps because mine is more detailed.At the time of drafting this post, I … Continue reading Summer Holiday | Traveler’s Notebook

Month in Numbers | July 2018

Did July turn out to be jubilantly joyful?  Let's see what the numbers say: 270 lengths of the pool at the gym. My highest daily step count was 24,898.

Washington, DC | The Travel Journal

Our Easter trip to Washington, DC was recorded, obviously, in a Traveler's Notebook. Travelling with both The Brainy One and The Boy Child meant that I didn't have as much time during the trip to keep the journal up to date.  It came home full of pencil markings indicating where photos would go and with … Continue reading Washington, DC | The Travel Journal
