It is a long weekend here ... got to love those. It's the Queen of Englands birthday - well not really her actual day but its when we get a public holiday - so hey! A bonus day for my family to all be together then I am all for it! Happy Birthday Lizzie - here's to the Commonwealth! I just wish the weather were kinder .... never mind. Katie and I are doing some fun things together ... loads of jig saw puzzles and Den bought her the latest issue of "In the Night Garden" magazine with a packet of Iggle Piggle snap cards. Yup ... this Mum is having a blast this weekend ;) Would I trade spots? Not on your Nelly!
That is of course after all the chores are done. Don't you just love winter and trying to dry the washing!! I do have a dryer used for emergencies as the 'greenie' in me tries to dry clothes naturally and so my house looks like a laundrette! As I was fixing my washing yesterday I noticed below occuring. The children have swapped chores and now Katie is in charge of emptying the dishwasher! Is it any wonder it ever gets emptied at this rate! This girl makes me laugh so often - especially when all goes quiet and she is sitting in front of the oven talking to herself. She has done that since she was a baby - such a girl!
Photo challenges for this week:
P52 is my new ipad ... yes ... Den surprised me with it. Highly decadent but truly wonderful! The problem is now you have to book time on it! Everyone wants a go as it would seem app after app was being uploaded and it necessitated everyone having their own 'page'. Mine was empty apart from necessities - that is until Nini came to the rescue once more. I now have a 'gratitude' app - LOVE IT!
As you can see below this is NOT my page .... dress up, red carpet, tinkerbell, draw and angry birds ... hummm .. who's page could this be?
PCF Challenge this week was fences ... here are a few snaps I got on my pod walk today.
No this is not a funky new walking style, this is my Den patiently doing stretches waiting for me to do my happy snapping on our daily podwalk - thanks babe!
The latest collab kit out at Shabby Pickle ... "story book" LOVE IT! Forever grateful to Natasha for introducing me to fantasy pages.
This page is for the June CT scraplift at CatScrap:
This page is for Matrioshki 'folk challenge':
The fabulously talented Nini has a range of new products out ... here is a page with a whole swag of her FREE designs. I love the introspective approach her kits/word art encourage:
Finally Ange has a new kit out "rain coat" - I have to admit a real partiality to non photo pages - love the self expression it allows ... this page includes the lyrics from the Carpenters songs "rainy days and monday get me down". LOADS of rain around here lately .... but my Den and I bounce off each other and support one another. This page is dedicated to him.
