quite a good month for me with several nice things happening.
Saturday 5th October
A visit to Steam (the railway museum) for a Lego exhibition with Neil & Rufus some really fantastic models. The enthusiasts spend hours and hours building them, nothing is permanent as nothing is glued together.
Rufus was in one of his fancy dress outfits, and although I thought he was being Dracula apparently he was a superhero Batman because he had a bat on his cape, makes perfect sense doesn't it
Friday 11th - Sunday 13th I was in Birmingham for the Green Button Scrapping retreat. It is great to meet up with friends that I chat to on line but only meet once a year.
I wasn't too well, I'd caught Rufus's cold but still managed to have a good productive weekend, completing 7 pages
I was determined to get this page done of the second scan picture of Grandson No.4 before he made his appearance.
Saturday 19th Elijah (aka Eli) made his entrance into our world
I now have so many lovely photo to use and really am itching to get on with them. I also have more photos of my other grandsons Daniel & Ben to make into pages where oh where do I start?
Today I am grateful for the safe delivery of Eli
for being able to see him, Rufus and my Son & Daughter in Law often (living in the same town makes that possible)
for a free day today (Wednesday) to take things at a slower pace.

the last few pages
Thursday and of course I'm tired in the afternoon, I eventually gave way to the temptation to just snooze in my chair
Friday I had lunch in town to save cooking in the evening. This made me smile
Saturday I have at long last started preparing for the Green button Retreat not long to go it starts on the 11th looking forward to a good weekend, just hoping the grandson number 4 doesn't choose that time to make his appearance.
Sunday, it was good to have a relaxing day. I usually love being in company on a Sunday but as I haven't been at home for Sunday Lunch for 3 weeks this week I really enjoyed the pleasure of being able to shut myself away, scrap and watch TV and generally relax and be myself, by myself.
Monday 30th and last day of the challenge.
It's been a great month for me to be able to scrap so many pages and also to scrap most days. I had one space left in my album so I decided it would be nice to add a final page as a backdrop to the month
Thank you Shimelle for the enjoyment this challenge brings each year
thank you for all of you who have shared your pages
and I hope to see you all again next year and perhaps in December when we do Journal your Christmas
and as a final footnote I noticed that in 2011 I didn't put in a final page so I've rectified that with this page it is a digital page so that it matches in with all the rest for the year
