It's the final count down!
I went to the little crop yesterday and had a wonderful time with the big girls and the Divine Miss E. As my girlie is in Newcastle I see it as my mission to spoil Little Miss E a little whenever I see her because every momma has to have a girlie to spoil, even if that girlie belongs to someone else!
At the crop I managed the final 11 (yes I did get a bit behind at the end of the project) pages for my LSNED mini book and also made a card for a certain someone's birthday tomorrow, so can't show this as yet.
So here we go (with apologies for the length of this post)
Gracia took her UKCAT test and passed with flying colours, was there any doubt she would?
It was time to say goodbye to Hannah, although I celebrate that she has been Gracia's best friend for over 10 years she has also been my 'other' daughter for just as long.
Cases packed and ready for the first part of our journey to Newcastle - I truly wanted to hide these cases so she couldn't go!
Traveling to mum's took longer than expected due to the 2 1/2 hour traffic jam we found ourselves in.
After deciding to walk into Newcastle - 40 minutes, we then couldn't find our way back to Gracia's flat - over an hour back.
I have a love/hate feeling for this photo, love it because it celebrates Gracia's independence and self assurance and being able to move so far away and hate it for exactly the same reasons.
After nagging her for as long as I can remember to tidy her bedroom. An empty and tidy bedroom reminds me that sometimes you don't always want what you wish for!
Making myself late for work because I just had to go back for my camera and take a photo of this beautiful web.
Remembering that sometimes for my own sanity I get up early just to be creative and start the day in a good way.
As I opened the gate to drive the car out I noticed the leaves and berries on the ground and realised that Autumn was really here.
Starting and ending the month with a bunch of flowers - one to celebrate getting a new job and the other as a leaving present. So after 11 years I am moving onto pastures new - exciting but very scarey.
When I got home from the crop I made the covers and used a bind it all wire to hold it all together.
The book is so fat that I had to thread all the pages onto the wire and pinch it together by hand.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. Harvest festival in church this morning was so good.
2. I have tomorrow off before starting my new job.
3. The girl is loving Newcastle and all her new friends.
