Life’s Great!

Saturday is the best day of the week!

I had a little sleep-in before a slow start to my day.   Caught up on emails and Facebook, followed by a late breakfast. A coffee in the sunshine while reading a few chapters of my book, after getting dressed and putting on the first load of washing.

The kitchen needed a bit of TLC, that done I was free to drop in on my sewing room to tidy and think about working on a project…or two.


Card classes this week was Christmas in July and the top left was a challenge to create a Christmas card with matching gift card using only the items provided. I have a very nice beginning to my cards for Christmas 2011.

P1040360  Jordan had a late start to his day too.  Here he is still in his PJ’s having breakfast/morning tea.  Never far from or unattached to the earphones of his IPod….he didn’t even know I snapped this photograph.

Leah was having a difficult day with Brooklynn, wouldn’t know it looking at these photos of her here.  Severe nappy rash seems to be the culprit.  After staying for dinner, both of our girls went home with smiles on their faces……being a grandparent is just the best!

The end of the evening is here, I back in my PJ’s enjoying a very large Bailey's, listening to the Rugby that Greg’s watching in the other room. Life really doesn’t get much better than this!

Thanks for visiting.

You are so clever making those cards. Me? haven't got the patience or the inclination. Lovely photos of Brooklyn- she's a lucky wee girl.

Your cards are gorgeous, the lucky people who receive those will cherish them. Sorry to hear Brooklynn was having a rough day, it's so hard to see them upset and not feeling well. She is such a doll!!
