A FRIDAY "OLDIE"
Good afternoon. I know that there are a lot of unhappy and happy folk up here in Scotland today!!!
I am proud to be Scottish and British and even more now when I see how many people came out and voted on this important vote, I know it won't please everyone, but at least we could make our cross on that paper without living in fear of being watched ? No guns pointing. Like in some countries. We now will hopefully get back to some normality.
Now I was looking in ever box and photo album these last few days to find a photograph of big sister Patricia and brother- inlaws wedding 50 years ago. We have moved something like 20 times in our 44 years of marriage so things do get put in places and forgotten about. Fortunately for Patricia and John is I didn't find one. She has put up some on her blog. ( Patricia-summerhousecraftsblogspot ). I think she did this before I did. She knows me so well I just feel to be married 50 years and still be friends should be celebrated.
Now my oldie isn't that exciting, it's one of Anna watching mummy's old horse Tuffy being shoed. Sadly Tuffy died a good years ago. Any way seeing the Farrier working away today at the stables made me think of this scrapbook page. Anna was about 3 note the summer dress and winter boots, today it's Doc Martins!!! Then again she isn't any different from many others of her age over the years. I can still remember my Tammy wearing Docs all the time when she was between 12-19. She is now 37 and would love a pair, I can see her buying them too.
This page was done when I hadn't long started and didn't have much stash. Oh when I think of all that I have and had it's scary the amount of money I have spent!!!
But at least it's moments like this that have been kept. Anna can hopefully share them with family and friends in years to come.
Sitting here feet up doing this blog. I have done everything that I need to do I will pick the girls up later Beth has a friend coming for a play and tea, Anna just wants to chill out when she gets home. I am fine with that.. Off tomorrow with Patricia to meet Rita ( RMG Designs)
We are meeting up in Glasgow really looking forward to meeting
Sorry I meant to welcome ( Margaret Corgi Dog Owner) Margaret doesn't have a blog but she is more than welcome to come join in and see what I get up to. Also thank you for your comments on my Striplet cards I love how they turned out, I haven't done much this week. Don't know where the week has gone...... My GC is back not sure if it's up to par, it took 4 going through of a striplet
die that twice through the XCut came out better, will have to work on that.
