Catch up

I haven't posted much except my nature calendar for quite some time, so I thought I had better rectify that.
I haven't been feeling too good lately mainly tired because I don't sleep very well at the best of times but for the last three weeks my nasal passages have been rather blocked and so I'm finding it even harder to stay asleep at night. (note to self - make an appointment with the doctors)

I am so glad I didn't get rid of my old desktop computer, for although it is driving me bananas because of its slowness, it is a computer, it does work and I can get on to the internet. I can create digital pages and therefore continue with my creativity.

I haven't done any more paper & things pages since the beginning of the month, but I do have a crop tomorrow so hopefully I will get one done there. In the meantime here are a couple of digital pages completed this week.

This first one is for the weekly challenge on UKScrappers to use a sketch from pagemaps (3rd one down)
to use a holiday theme and to add butterflies or blooms or both.
A Picture Postcard Day
Neither butterflies nor blooms really went with these photos so I hid the butterflies in the title.

This one is a double page of my Son's boy, Rufus, he is such a mischief and has such a cheeky way with him.

My laptop should be delivered back to me tomorrow, for which I will be very grateful.

Karen of Dolly's Dreamings always put what she is grateful for each day. So I'm copying her today and here is what I am grateful about

I still have my desktop computer
I met up with my Son today and got my Grandsons birthday present
I had a nice time at the hairdressers this morning.

and instead of a lolcat (Karen's addition) I have one of my own cat Rudi

Mary I love seeing the picture of Rudi - must make LOL cats of mine one day

And I love the thankfulness. I have been doing thankfulness for a long long time now (can't remember if I started it Jan 2011 or 2010) and it is such a nice focus
I love your Pizza Express page - really really clever and beautifully done

Hope your sinuses feel better once you get them some TLC from the doctor.

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
