Monday blues....

Do you ever have the Monday blues?? We have had such a busy weekend that waking up this morning and realising that it was Monday, and wondered how quickly it had came round again. We've been busy thinking and buying new bits and pieces for Charlotte's bedroom. Bless her she is still in her cot bed and is rapidly running out of space in it. At the moment she has our wardrobes (which are huge) and a futon in her room, so we have figured that we have got to downsize the wardrobes and get rid of the futon. Yesterday was spent at Ikea purchasing new wardrobes and thinking about storage. We live in a two bedroom house which comes with pretty much no storage at all, which makes life very difficult at times. We couldn't believe that the delivery cost was only going to be £5 which in all honesty made us pull our fingers out and order them. There is just a small issue of were all the stuff is going from our old wardrobes. I know we have to do it, but this does mean a mass sort out which being a hoarder isn't easy!!.

I did manage to finish my layout from last week. Really like these pictures of Charlotte on holiday sitting amongst the buttercups. Again I have used several brands of patterned paper.

Several months ago when I took part in Cheryl Johnsons beginners photo course I took a photo of Charlotte but I was just not completely happy with it as it was slightly blurry. So today I asked Charlotte if she would pose for me and see if we can get a good photo again.

and it all ended in this................

On Saturday we walked down to the river as it was the annual river festival. Charlotte saw loads of her little friends and the atmosphere was great. Had to take these photos from the bridge as I couldn't get the depth I wanted by the river.

Right I have to fly as I need to collect Charlotte from school.

As always thanks for stopping by.
