Wow what a busy week it seems to have flown by it just seems like 2 minutes since I was sitting cuddling baby Athena last Sunday morning.
I was off on Friday this week and spent the day with my Grandad. We have been talking about having a day out for ages, visting his childhood haunts etc. The weather has been shocking all week and I feared we would have to cancel but thankfully Friday dawned cloudy but dry.
We walked all over the Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside area visiting where his Granny's house was (photo above), the site of the factory where he started his first job, it was great to hear him talking about the war and local history. We went into a new Heritage Centre (photo below) and while he told tales of being an evacuee the staff were entranced! It was a great day, we took loads of pictures and can't wait to plan our next adventure :o)
Despite my busy week and being at work this weekend, I managed to squish in some crafting! One of the girls I work with is adopting a 2 year old little boy and has asked me to make her some announcement cards. I have done the first one and am entering it into 2 challenges....
Challenge 1: Allsorts Challenge, "Baby / Child"
Challenge 2: Card Patterns, sketch 74
So that's one down and 11 to go - let's see how many other challenges I can complete while doing this batch, fingers crossed!
