Back to Normality

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and are now getting back to some normality, although it does come hard doesn't it?

I know I have been a bad blogger and haven't posted since Charlotte's Birthday, but the last week in December before school broke up was just manic. I so enjoyed Christmas even if we did get huge amounts of snow and did at times wonder whether we would be able to make it down to my parents. It was in actual fact a very easy drive so I was thankful for that. We caught up with friends and family which is always good fun.

I am still creating layouts for my JYC and I'm so happy that I have managed to keep going, as usually with mini books they don't tend to have many pages in them, not quite sure what happens, I have this great idea but then some how it all fizzles out. I think what helps is that you get a prompt everyday from Shimelle which for me encourages me to carry on. I have around 9 more pages to do and have written a list so I keep a check of what pages are left. I just need some bigger book rings now as the album is expanding rapidly. Here are a few pages from it, but please excuse the photo quality the light here is so poor at the moment.

We have Charlotte's Birthday Party on Saturday at Frankie and Benny's, we prolonged the party as to organise it before Christmas would have been crazy and I'm not sure how many would of been able to make it due to other commitments. She is very excited and looking forward to it, it will be hard work for Les and I and I'm not quite sure what we are going to do with them for 2 hours!!!.

Right as usual I'm running out of time.

Thanks for popping by.

  3. Hi - thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting on my journal! It was nice to see you there. I have to say that your journal is looking gorgeous! Are you doing an 8x8 format? I love the simple design you have but there is still so much to see and I love all the little bits and pieces you have used. It will be lovely for you to look back on when it's finished!
