Half term finished, poorly children all back to school, new laptop purchased. Finally a bit of time and decent equipment to actually post on our blog :)
So a few little random things we've been up to....
Going to see Gaby's favourite author, Darren Shan, talking and signing his new book, 'Zom-B' at our local Waterstones....
Using up my mum's blackberries. I made jam and blackberry vinegar this year (and crumbles of course)!
I have got into the Lifebook course I started at the beginning of the year again and have also joined another Art Journal/Mixed Media Group, Wild Soul Arts. I don't know why as I'm really behind with Lifebook, but it seems like my sort of place! Here's a few random pages I've done this year.
This is the first 'art' I've done since leaving school so my confidence is not great but I feel like I've learnt a lot already. I'm definitely going to sign up for next year's course and maybe some other online courses too. I'm enjoying it a lot.
We have started having whole days respite for the boys so in half term we went to see 'Skyfall'. I think this is the first time I have seen a James Bond film at the cinema since I saw 'The Living Daylights' with my Granny when I was about Gaby's age. We all enjoyed it and it's nice to have a longer day to do things.
As usual, I also have several different knitting, crochet and patchwork projects on the go as well as reading 5 different books at once. Hopefully this laptop will last and I will be able share them soon and keep things here more up to date :)
