Ive been away for a few days at Mommas and reunited with my peach - my Belle. She sits for god-knows-how-long on her treasured DS. And, you know, she finishes all her games; its a ritual she has to see out.
Ive been piecing together the last essentials of my Christmas Cd which airs next Monday (9th Aug) at 9am. Its full of lovely christmas ideas for home decor as well as cardmaking images and papers. In between perfecting the final touches, Ive been faffin with Macro and wide angle shots to stave off the boredom. This rose here, in Mums garden, is a variety that I had in my bridal bouquet called Nicole. Its a cream rose with a rich reddy pink outer layer and smells divine (scratch and sniff the screen to see what I mean ;) )
I also finished my tag from a tag swap that should have deadlined 16th July (erm, whoooops!) This is the second tag swap I have hosted so if you want to join in the next one, leave your name below. I only have 4 (plus me) in the group meaning that each girl (or boy!) makes 5 tags, keeps one and send 4 to me in an SAE to get 4 different ones back!.
This afternoon Belle and I went for a stroll on the beach. I practically squealed when I saw that they had painted the drab beach huts from their usual brown doors to these explosive colours. So Belle and I played - boy, she did have fun!
We took quite a walk and I purposely left Ellies wheelchair at home to get her legs some much needed exercise. She managed about half a mile, in an hour, with pit stops hither and dither. Here is one of our views on a corner, up a hill. Grey and dull yes but ooooh, you ought to have inhaled that beautiful sea air
But oh, the blue did peep a little in between the rolling grey clouds!
Then I took Belle for a Mc Heart Attacks for lunch whilst I dined heavenly on a lemon top ice cream.As we strolled down by the harbour, we passed a squillion fish and chip shops and this sign in the window made me laugh out loud
And then we came back to collapse after the bestest, purest and heady scent of fresh air. And I guess we might just do the same tomorrow, too!
