Bank holidays!

And so I lurch from one Bank Holiday to another - I thought I might have a little time to blog at the end of May purely because the bank holiday weekend was offering me an extra day to do so! And I was wrong!! lol

I'm sitting here with my iPod on listening to Stephen Lynch's tribute to Jim Henson, drinking a glass of Pinot Grigio and thinking how glorious it is to not think about work! It's been a busy month, and a busy week just gone - we went off on our adventures this past week as we took to the rivers (ok, canals) of middle England and navigate our way to Stratford and back at the grand speed of about.... 3mph. lol.

There was very little crafting going on in this busy month of May, but I did complete a page for my monthly slot, Art Journal Friday at The Scrappy Tree - apologies to everyone that I owe something to, my poor crafting supplies are dusty and neglected and feeling surplus to requirements at the moment (which of course they certainly are not!)
This is my page for the AJF challenge:-

And randomly thought that I would also share this very rare pic of me and my brother with my dad - haven't seen a photo like this since we were kids, so perhaps it needed sending out into the world to prove that it happened ;)
Happy June everybody :)

Castles and cards

Well we bid goodbye to the bank holiday weekend (they go so fast, don't they?) and back to work today. Feeling quite joyful though, as my car is FINALLY on the road again as of this evening! Few more things to do, but back in action for now :)

Thought that I would share some photos of our Sunday - we visited Carew Castle near Tenby for a mediaeval fayre. It was kind of quiet, but the scenery was great :)

I also got to do a little crafting this weekend, a birthday card...
...and a grungy art journal page...
...ended the weekend with multi-coloured hands, can't be bad :) Have a great week everybody!

May Day

It's May Day bank holiday weekend here in the UK - in keeping with the tradition of many of our national holidays, it's raining.

But as a nation, we don't let that stop us.
We had a barbeque, and a few beers; Gav even got a cigar out from our trip to see his dad in Texas last year...
Something about Corona beer with a slice of lime, and the smell of cigars, makes me feel like I'm on holiday :)

Check out this weekend's art journal challenge at The Scrappy Tree and let me know about those sights and smells which get you thinking about summer....
