May & June - My Month in 5 PhotosHello, hello, hello lovely blog readers. I am hanging my head in shame at the marked lack of blog posts of late and will endeavor to rectify this.
As I was about to post my June in 5 Photos I realised that I hadn't posted May's one yet!
So without further ado here is May in 5 Photos.
For May I used Simple Stories 'I AM' to celebrate lovely spring walks filled with the scent of bluebells.
Fabulous selfies that Gracia takes, Josh visiting her in Newcastle, making a skirt and starting to sew a dress - me not Josh - (hopefully finishing it in the next couple of weeks) and Gracia and Josh staying with us for a fabulous weekend of fun and frivolity.
For my June pages I used the papers from the gloriously colourful Kaisercraft 'Fly Free' collection and the two sketches from the June scrapbook challenge at Crafters@Play.
The paper with the bird on was perfect for the sketch incorporating a bird cage and this page celebrated the second weekend retreat to Thornham with this bunch of crazy ladies. Because of this photo I am now known as 'Bomber Moss'!
This page features Kiera on an early morning walk. Norwich Cathedral where we went on a school trip in June, we also visited the Castle which is well worth another visit. I spent quite a number of hours painting scenery for the Y7 Shakespeare performances (two castles, two caves, two bushes and a caldron). Finally, Josh was offered a job with Victim Support in Newcastle. So this signified the end of an era - Gracia and Josh now officially live in Newcastle. How ironic that for her first three years at University I was working during the long summer holidays and the year I get a job with the whole of the summer off she isn't coming home for all the holiday!
Reasons to be cheerful:-
1. Looking at the photo of the girls at Thornham gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling in my chest.
2. Gracia and Josh are starting on a new phase of their lives and I wish them every happiness.
3. Planning adventures in Newcastle and Colchester for when she comes home for a week but what really makes me happy is Gracia and I are going to see The Proclaimers together!
