My last blog for a couple of weeks am off tomorrow on holiday and really looking forward to it. We are going down towards Leicestershire where I have never been before and quite a drive for us but we will take it in easy stages. Bought OH a Sat/Nav so hopefully that will help us a lot getting there without pouring over maps. Praying for good weather and less rain so until I come back be good.
Oh by the way the scrapbook went down well she loved it.

Scrapbook & Flowers

Well I finally finished the scrapbook and decorated the cover and inside with encouraging quotes to help a 16 year old along the way! My son and DIL are having a bar-b-que for our grand-daughter's birthday, and 17 of her friends, on Friday so that should be fun!

Went out in the rain yesterday and took a few photos of my potted lilies and one of my hydrangea's which had finally decided to flower after about three years. It is a gorgeous colour completely different from the other one which is hues of lilac and blue.

Scrapbooking II

Here are a few more scrapbook pages I managed to do yesterday just to add to the collection. Quite getting into my stride now and enjoying doing them. I was a bit hesitant at first not knowing how to finish the pages. Hope you like them.

Haste ye back.....

Just a few pages of the scrapbook I am making to let you see what I have been up to this past week. It has been really difficult to decide what photos to use as there are some wonderful ones of my grand-daughter growing up.
Here are a few of them........

Flowers and pearls

It's Monday again and I have one card left to show of the series I did last week. As I said I still have a couple left to do and must get on and finish scrapbook. Maybe I will post some pages if you are patient with me.
Tomorrow I finally have my appointment with the diabetic specialist at Stracathro Hospital and I am all nerves today thinking about it. The appointment is over one and a half hours so don't know what to expect but I suppose they will be showing me how to use the injections and checking me out health-wise. It's long overdue I know but still doesn't make it any less easy for me and I am in such pain today with my sciatica that I could cry.
Anyway, changing the subject here is the card made for my DIL's birthday in September [see I did say I was ahead of myself lol].
