Well, I've had a few days away at my Mum's house seeing as it was half term, and a good time was had by all. The children had a great time especially when their cousins came to play for the day. I managed to squeeze in a couple of pages in my mini-journal amidst the chaos of 4 children playing (and two cats who wnated to help by sitting on my journal). My Mum looked on in amazement and said something along the lines of .... 'I can't believe you can sit in the middle of all this chaos painting.'
Ha ha ha, she knows me well ;-)

There are a few more pages in progress but  they need some finishing touches.

Happy Halloween all :-)

  13. I hope that the first page is a sign that you are going to take the bull by the horns on the thing that winds you up the most....!? Life really is too short to spend time on things that don't make you happy.
