Good morning, my friends. I do trust this finds you well. Without further ado – my desk – what you are all here to see…
On here today you can see Mrs D’s box of dies, still; a cross stitch piece I am endeavouring to do, magnifier – the only way I can do it these days! – and a scrapbook. At the back of the desk are cotton buds, and some letters I hope to have time to do something with, and a little picture frame for a piece of needle felting. Not a great deal of activity this week! One thing we have done is have a day out. John felt well enough last Saturday to head off, so we went to Blackwater Country Park near Holyhead. It was so beautiful – a sunny day but not too hot, and we went for a walk around the lake…
There are paths right up the cliffs and along the sea edge – but those were difficult for the scooter, so we just stayed on the level. It meant we didn’t see the choughs, gannets, hen harrier, etc., but it was a great time out.
So, because of the lack of activity on the desk throughout the week, I thought I would show you the contents of the scrapbook sitting there on the desk – be warned, fair readers, this is now becoming a picture heavy post – so don’t feel obliged to read any further if you are simply here for WOYWW. I shan’t take offence, don’t fret…
I put this all together for John for our Ruby anniversary – I’m not really one for scrapbooking, but despite them probably being highly unorthodox as scrapbook pages, I enjoyed the experience. So, here goes
Our wedding day
Our first daughter
Our second daughter – and yes, there is an incredible amount of red hair around!
A terrible image of the grandchildren opening their Christmas presents some few years ago! Sorry – forgot to take it out of its wallet!!
We are Christmasaholics in our family!!!, so couldn’t resist doing a page with this lovely candle arrangements to show what Christmas means to us.
And finally, you will be relieved to know, a page about my maternal grandparents, Ethel and William. Married soon after William was honourably discharged from serving in WW1. These two people are the reason behind all the red hair! Both my grandmother and my grandfather were ginger!!
Well, my friends, if you have got this far, you deserve at least a gold star, if not a gold medal. Congratulations.
That’s it from us, take care of yourselves and may God bless you.
