Sunday Lunch

I love going out to Sunday Lunch, that is one day of the week that I really don't like eating on my own.
When my John was a live and the children were at home that was always a family time, we ate around the dining table on Sundays, sometimes much to the children's annoyance if they wanted to watch something on television, but I loved it. A time to catch up on what everyone was doing, to share and to really enjoy a meal.
Usually one or twice a month several of us ladies who are all widows get together to have a meal, and today was one of those occasions. We went to the carvery at the Devere hotel in Swindon, we have been there several times and always have a superb meal. Plenty of chatting and sharing as well as eating. Thank you ladies for making Sunday Lunch time an enjoyable experience again.
Well what have I been doing since I came home? scrapping of course. I have now done two pages for my Swindon Album, the first I did yesterday is just the front page, today's contribution is about the greenery in the town centre.

One of the challenges I do every month is the book of me challenge and this month we had to ask a family member to describe us and make a layout using that description. I asked both my son & daughter to do that in just a few words, and was near to tears when I received the lists, especially the one from my son.
Here is the resulting page

Mary this is gorgeous and what a fab idea!! I might have a go at this! It must make you so proud x

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
