Notice the french theme to tonight’s title – I am getting into practice for OUR TRIP TO PARIS next week.
Can you tell I am excited? I won’t go on and on about it now……..but don’t worry, I am sure I will go on and on and on about it afterwards.
And I may just have a photo or two (hundred) to share as well!
This is my latest digitally scrapped birthday card – credits – Tatter Frannies by NitWit Collections. (Remember – I take orders!)
It has been another busy and hectic week in our house, as I said to my husband the other day….”See you in Paris!” as at least one of us has been out every evening this week. The P6 and P7 pupils from my daughter’s school performed the musical Joseph for two evenings this week in our local civic arts centre, and it was an excellent show.
As a member of the choir and a dancer, my eldest daughter was in her element. However, the highlight was probably having her hair put up in a french plait by a lovely family friend – this skill having not been handed out to me along with my other mummy skills.
At least, we call it a french plait here – what is it called in your corner of the world? We would both love to know!
As I am writing this I have almost finished a large digital scrapbooking order which is a surprise graduation gift for a lady’s daughter in America. There will be over 50 pages, and I am looking forward to hearing her reaction when she is presented with it.
It has been really enjoyable to do, and I have learnt a lot about Home Coming, proms, spring break and other American high school traditions – stuff I never knew I didn’t know, if you know what I mean?
We have enjoyed 2 weeks of glorious sunny and warm weather here – unseasonally warm. My son and I have enjoyed picnic lunches in the garden nearly every day after playgroup. After lunch he likes it when we sit in our “laxing chairs” (reclining sun loungers) sharing my “cocoa” (diet coke). Of course his “laxing” lasts about 5 seconds, but I enjoy the peace while I can!
Finally, Lara Payton at Dusty Bear has this beautiful new kit out called Antique Beauty. It is currently on offer
That is all from me for now. I may fit in another post before we leave for Paris.
Until next time, take care.
