Hi - Firstly let me apologise for my spelling mistakes on my last post. I must have been having a senior moment he he! This time I will promise to use the spell-check.
This photo is of a page I did recently of my Grandmother on my mum's side. She died when my mum was only 8 years old leaving Granddad with 5 daughters. I love this picture of her and I think the paper goes so well with it all. We had a very social weekend this week. On Saturday Paul's sister Yvonne and her hubby Doug came round for a meal, then on Sunday we went to our friends Angie & Roy for tea and had a lovely evening. Silly me - I left my handbag round there and didn't have my mobile on me so we got all the way home to find a message from Angie on the answerphone. Roy very kindly brought it round tonight when he finished work - thanks Roy! Got a very busy few weeks coming up and loads of photo oportunities so look out for the results on her in the weeks to come!

Over the last few days I've been listening to a cd in my car to try to motivate me and get my life back on track and be positive. This cd really surprised me what I heard today and I already feel different. I've decided NOT to play any more silly games of Facebook as they keep me up till 2 - 3am because I can't switch off. I have followed my Tesco Diet meal plan to the letter and feel really pleased with myself. Maybe this butterfly is going to emerge - slimmer and more focused.

The above picture is of a page I did a couple of weeks ago. It is of my mum who sadly died in 1980 at the tender age of 51. These photo's were taken on mum & dad's Honeymoon in Clacton, Essex in 1951. I'm creating an album of my life and family. I love this page - it had to be done in pink cos that was mums favourite colour.
I will put some more pictures on in a few days, have a good weekend.

Last night I enrolled on Tesco Diets as I'm really struggling with my weight. I refuse to buy any new clothes in the larger size - I want to fit the clothes I have got, so I joined them to see how I get on. I've been like a womas posessed with my camera, taking lots more phoos of my garden. I'm really pleased with them -
hope you like them too.

The top photo is of my beautiful Peace Rose and the middle one is a lovely Dahlia growing in one of my pots and the third picture is of one of my many hanging baskets - all of which were planted by me.

Hi, me again, just been taking photos in the garden of some of my lovely flowers and thought I'd share them with you all. Hope you like them!



At the weekend Paul & I were supposed to have done a fete but the weather was sooo bad. We wrestled to put our gazebo up to protect us in case it rained, but the wind was so strong it kept nearly blowing across the field, then we had such heavy rain it was coming in the sides and front and would have ruined all the stuff we were selling, so we packed up and came home again. What a wash-out!! Never again! Could have done with it being more like today. Never mind - put that one down to experience.

Tomorrow Paul and I are having a stall at Sprowston Parish Council fete. Hope the weather keeps nice for us as it is outdoors. Hoping to sell some of the stock I've still got from when I had my craft shop many moons ago. We had an information evening at the hospital on Thursday night and learned a lot, so feel more positive now about the whole situation. I took a load of photos a couple of evenings ago, and silly me didn't have a card in the camera so didn't get any pics. I'm going out again this afternoon and will post the photos over the weekend. Watch this space

Good news in a way - Paul & I spent 1 1/2 hours at hospital yesterday with the Transplant co-ordinator. Very nice lady explained lots of things to us. Too much to take on board at once but don't need to panic yet - rate of deterioration could be about 12-15 months before he needs to go on transplant list - so breathing space available. Time to sort house out in readiness. Sorry for no photo's this time will post some over the weekend.

I love these two pic's of Pickles - she is so cute and funny, you can't help but love her to bits (well we can't). It's a real treat to get some photo's of her keeping still.

Sorry I've not posted anything for several days - had a lot going on. Paul (my husband) is on the verge of needing a kidney transplant and it's been a lot to try and get our heads around. It's quite stressful knowing what he's got to go through. The next stage comes next thursday when we're seeing the transplant co-ordinator. I'm hoping once he is on the list, I can be tested to see if I would be a suitable match for him. On a lighter note, here are some more pictures. The one of us together was taken in April on holiday in Turkey. The others are of Honey and Pickles - I actually managed to get some decent pictures of her. Paul says she takes after me inasmuch as I hate having my photo taken. Every time she hears the camera turn on she runs away lol.
