Life in the Slow Lane: MEMOS, MAIL, ME

Monday, 3 April 2017


I've missed it.....and I'm dipping my toe in again blogging I mean!

I'm making no promises- to myself or to anyone else - that it will be a regular occurrence, but I thought that I might start by joining re-joining SIAN and her 'Merry Mondayers' in the first instance.

So what's been happening in the slow lane this week?

I've managed a little bit of scrapbooking:

I'm sure I saw the sketch for this on FB but can't remember where

I happened upon this sketch on FB and used it as my starting point for this:

A little bit of reading:

I have made time to join a Reading Group and this was this month's (April's) choice....I quite enjoyed it even though it's not my favourite topic...the Cold War and espionage, but it examines the effects of wrongful accusation on a family (think The Railway Children written from the adult's perspective) therefore was more enjoyable than I had expected it to be.

Craig was here for a few days and we managed to get a few jobs done, had dinner out for our Wedding Anniversary ...and also had a day (well it SEEMED like an entire day!) looking at shower trays, tiles and vanity units for our shower room, which is just about to be re-decorated, along with our bedroom:

....and lastly the mail. It's been a Good Mail week:

a postcard from the lovely DEB, a Mother's Day card from Kirsty and an Anniversary card from our bridesmaid (the only other person apart from ourselves who ever remembers..thank you Morag!)

Have a good week and hopefully I'll be back next week...the coming week involves travel and catching up with Kirsty and with old friends for me...hope your week holds good things too!

Thanks for dropping by!
Takecare of you
