Tuesday was spent with a trip to the dentist for Hugh and the hairdresser for me in the morning and then relaxing in the afternoon - model railway for Hugh, scrapbooking for me.
Wednesday we completed some jobs and had a walk into Wickford to get a newspaper and then spent another afternoon relaxing! In the evening we went to the Italian restaurant in Wickford and had a lovely meal - we both chose exactly the same from the menu! Calamari for a starter and then spaghetti carbonara for our main. A glass of white wine for me and a lager for Hugh. I had really fancied a desert when we arrived, but after our starter and main I couldn't manage one! Not brilliant photos I'm afraid, taken on my phone!
Friday morning we drove over to Basildon to do some shopping on behalf of Father Christmas! We also had to buy my nephew his 18th birthday present as we are all getting together at the end of the month to celebrate his birthday and Olivia's 10th birthday. We decided to treat ourselves to lunch out at the Wickford Cafe - Hugh had the allday English breakfast, I had scampi, chips and peas!
So, to finish, here is one of the layouts I completed this week.
|This is another layout from our Isle of Wight holiday|
I have been taking Shimelle's latest class, Scrapbook Remix, which is all about mixing your patterned papers and I am finding it extremely good. It is really making me think about the patterend paper I have and about putting patterns together that perhaps I wouldn't have done before and I am quite pleased with the results!
