This is Sarah Ben and Charlotte in the garden in May this year when supprise supprise it was a lovely warm and sunny day, it was fun having the children around after school to play in the garden but now the weather has been miserable and its not possible as the grass is wet, I have a big drive and they can play up and down that on their scooters which they did on Sunday but it's not the same without the sunshine, let's hope it will not be long before it makes an appearance again, hopefully to stay a while.
The colours are a lot nicer in real life.
A round, deep dish. Show us a bowl in your space today.

My take on todays HS:MS
Got my DH to take this photo
Here is one I took of shaving soap.
Well I am off to the shops now to buy some steak to make Cornish Pasties for tea, I love the smell of the pasties while when they are baking.
Sarah and the children are coming over for tea so I will make a strawberry pavlova as well.
This will make a change from the usual roast.

On Sunday Geoff: enjoyed his Fathers Day but the weather wasn't great so apart from going to the supermarket it was another day at home. I had intented to do some seious scrapping in the afternoon but got on the computer and that was the end of that.
My daughter Sarah and the children came for tea with us,it was a nice fathers day treat for Grandad as he loved seeing the children. They rang him during the day and he loved that.
This is Charlotte talking to Grandad on the phone yesterday.
I spent most of the evening watching TV as I wanted to see who won Britains got talent, I was happy that Paul Potts won as I think he deserved to, but there was a lot of talent in the final, what about gorgeous little Connie? she sang beautifully and was just so cute I'm sure she has a glittering future ahead, such confidence in one so young. Good Luck for the future Connie.
Now I am going to spend this afternoon in my scrap room and see what inspiration I can find amongst all my fab stash.
I hope you all had a good weekend and a great Fathers day.
This is my LO I have entered in the Pencil Lines contest, hope you like it.
Off to do some more scrapping now.(Hopefully)

This is the LO of Charlotte having a happier time on the beachHope the weather will be kind to us this weekend.

Yesterday we went to Cornwall for the day, first we visited Flambards where Ben and Charlotte had a great time on the rides. This is the balloon thet they went up in,they loved it
After spending time on the rides we went to see the Britain in the Blitz experience it felt so real and it made you realize what terrible times our people lived through in those days.
From there we went on to the Victoria Village which again is so realistic you can really get the feel of what it was like. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was glad we went although we didn't get to see it all as our main visit was to go to the beach at Marazion to go across the causeway to St Michaels Mount. When we got there the tide was in too far and by the time it was fully out it had started to rain so we decided against it just incase it worsened. It gives us an excuse to visit again soon.
It was very nostalgic for me as I was born in Marazion and spent all my summers on the beach or across the Mount, my Mother used to work for Lord St Leven who owned the Mount before he handed it over to the National trust. I remember going to the church on St Michaels Mount as a young girl and realising that my pew lifted up, after the service Lord St Leven lifted the seat up to reveal stone steps leading to a dungeon were there were large skeleton bones suppose to have been belonging to the Giant that lived there many years before. I also collected old pennies from holiday makers and laid them along the causeway from the Mount to the beach for the red cross. I remember having a wonderful childhood at Marazion, it was so good to be there yesterday.
These are some of the photos I took of Grandad playing with Ben and Charlotte.
We all had a great time.
When we left Marazion we went to Helston to our favourite fish and chip shop and had some of their lovely fresh cod mmm it was delicious. Then back home all tired and happy.

I haven't got much scrapbooking done lately I have done a LO for Pencil lines which I can't show here at the moment but here is one that I started at the last Exeter crop and have at last finished it was a class by Janice Warren and I am quite pleased with how it turned out
I can't wait for the Exeter crops to start again as I am missing them already, Fi aka Srappybunny from UKS runs them but she is moving house at the moment and will start up in her new home town when she is settled and has chance to organise them, I hope it won't be too long before they start again.
Must go and prepare my meal don't want to keep Sarah waiting as I'm sure she is excited about seeing her old school friends, would love to see them all when they get together lol.
