Flippin heck, so much happened last week that I didn't blog much about as I didn't have access to uploading pictures from my camera as well as I normally do at home.
So here are my pics from my visit home and little tales in between:
Mum and Dad on their Ruby wedding anniversary. We all went out for a lovely Chinese meal and her best friend came along with her husband and granddaughter, Esmie :)This is the card I made for themThis is us at the restaurantIsn't Esmie gorgeous ?
These are odd pictures I took when we went to the park during a lovely day last week. Loving Ellies curls hereA beautiful peacock Butterfly, its so early to see them this time of year
Ooooh, cheeky!We love the walled gardens at Sewerby, so vibrant and calm :)Ellie waded into a throng of daffodils and looked out for the gardeners who might have aimed pitchforks at such tomfoolery...ooops, being a photographer gets me into scrapes!
Shoe watch - Dyan will be happy! I bought 4 pairs of shoes whilst I was away and all 4 pairs came to less than £30 including these designer babies below!These little pink things cost £1.50. They are soooooo comf and are perfect for the garden and wet spring day walks.I love these little suede effect shoes too.I also spent a day with Caroline last week. Ellie enjoyed herself so much that she didn't want to go back to mums house. We jibber jabbered all day and ate scones and talk craft. Perfect, if you ask me! Carolines house and craft work projects are beautiful.This is one of her sons, jonni. Ellie is smitten with him :)
Caroline has a beautiful Etsy shop and I spied this in her house and bought it. Its a french wooden frame with proper french gauze. I love it so much, i cant wait to add my photos and little quotes on it :)And here are a few seaside walk snaps. I love the beach at my parents. there is always a brisk wind and a hellish chill but Eddy loves it as much as I do plus there are always interesting things to take pictures of :) This run of red railings goes on for hundreds of metres. id hate to paint that bugger!I don't know why I like this angle, I just do.
Seaweedy beach breaks look a bit bloody monstery. Good job I had the dog to protect me!
The boy, our lovely wee boy!Leaving little tippy tappy foot prints
And ears flapping like Dumbo!I think this is my very favourite picture.Or maybe this one?Or, erm, this one....help me!The sunset on the beach casts a gorgeous colour on Eds.And creates beautiful low sun shading on the sand ripplesAnd lastly if not randomly, Ellie and I made jewellery whilst chilling out at my mommas. this is for her BFF, Beth. Ellie chose the beads herself but muggings, here, had to knit it all up. Fiddly little thing if you ask me but fun!And now Im home and things are getting back to norm although my scraproom looks like a bomb site. Im ashamed of myself to be honest. Instead, Im sitting here linking to the Susan Boyle video like it was my first time, every time and cry every time too. Life isnt all sickly treacle and molasses like this video but it would be lovely if it was. I get ribbed for wishing for a happy life by lots of people - losery mean bags they are, why shouldn't we hope for happiness? Huh, while ever there are people like Susan on this planet I think those with dreamy dreams should continue to hold out that one day they might come true :)
Going to snuggle up with my little dogster as I am wide awake and I have two Greys Anatomy's to catch up on. Some chocky buttons are calling out my name too and I know that somehow they will just fall into my mouth as Im lounging :)
