Sunday Sunday

It is Sunday, a day of rest? well it is supposed to be, but I woke at 6.55 needing the loo.(hope that is not too much info). Too late to go back to sleep so I got up and made a cuppa and switch on my laptop. I went first to UKScrapper then to the blog train for yesterday on Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers class. This has become my normal practice first thing of a morning.
As usual Sammy, my she cat, jumps onto my lap and pushes my hands so that it becomes difficult to write until I stroke her and she can settles down.

One of the things that Shimelle encouraged us to do, and I didn't do it on the day, is to list our favourite things. I have just read Rachels list and thought perhaps this morning is the time to do mine. So here it is

First and foremost, of course, are my Grandsons, Daniel aged 2yrs 4months, who I don't see all that often unfortunately because he lives with his mum and dad a 5 hour train journey away from me. So when I do go up I have to get as many photos as I can to tide me over till the next time.
Then there is my Grandson No.2 just 2 months old and a little darling and living only 5 minutes away so I can see him often, but I have to try and restrict how often as I don't want to be a dreaded mother-in-law.

Favourite thing No.2 is Scrapping, especially digital scrapping, which is how I started on the hobby. I have been scrapping now for 5 plus years

No.3 is chatting on UKScrappers and now here as well as I am learning to use my blog more and more.

No.4 Chocolate, though I shouldn't because I want to keep my weight, that I have fought hard to loose, at a sensible level. But who can resist a bar of chocolate or better still a box of them.

No 5 I love to go shopping for clothes. I find something I like the look of, take it to the fitting room to try on, get out my camera and take photos of myself in them. Most of the time I will buy the item I snap but just occasionally I regrettably decided I really don't need it and put it back on the rail.

And one more thing I love, but I don't know where abouts on the list it should come, is Photographing everything I see that interests me, or catches my attention, is quirky or cute. I have my camera everywhere I go I pick it up as I pick up my handbag, I just don't leave the house without it.

What a lovely list! Your grandsons are gorgeous.
And what a clever thing to photograph yourself in outfits as you try them on. First, you get a different view of how you look, which might help you decide; then if you're not sure anyway, you can take the photos home and look at them again, along with items in your wardrobe, to help you make up your mind! Why didn't I ever think of that? You are so clever, Mary. I even have a camera with me all the time now, since I treated myself to a lovely new mobile phone (to replace my rather tatty broken old one).
Love your blog, Mary and hope your sore face is better now.

I think it's wonderful that you take the photographs in the dressing room!

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
