What have I been doing?

Well, I know I've been busy, but busy doing what? That's the question.  I have been to a couple of crops and even more surprisingly, I've actually achieved something at them.

I've also been keeping up with my photo a day.  Although I've not followed any prompts, the photos do show a snapshot of our lives - which was the plan :)  I'm still not 100% sure how to showcase them, and as much as I adore seeing others who are doing Project Life, I'm not quite sure I want to take on that level of commitment - also, I'm not really wanting to buy another album for that.  So I may well do it, but with a slight twist to it ... uuummm, I think that still needs some thought.

Anyhow, a blog I do follow is the lovely and talented Alana, and her blog The Little Blue Shed.  Well each week, missy clever clogs, puts up a mosaic of her week.  Well, I've just loved seeing that, so I asked her how she did it, and to my glee, it's an app.  Well, I love my apps, so yes I downloaded it and if anyone is interested it's called My week in pictures.  Now, getting it on to here was a different story, and again, Alana came to my rescue .... only, she managed to confuse me! LOL ... so instead, I took the easy way out and emailed them to myself.  And here they are; my past few weeks, not the most exciting in the world ... but hey, so far, so good!:)

Week I

It shows; we took down the decorations at the little house, a thursday night crop, a shopping trip to Kingston & we had a skip delivered to start clearing Mum & Dads.

Week 2
It was the lovely Jo's, big birthday at the crop, so of course, she had to be my photo of the day; I got to meet up with my friend Michelanne and her gorgeous little man Jimmy; also, here is a picture of my new iphone case from Cath Kidston (oohh its so pretty)  and oh and we tried to do boiled eggs like Heston makes LOL.

Week 3
The main one is of my friend Emma, who invited myself and a couple of friends for lunch to her place; I also met up with another friend for coffee this week & we spent a lovely weekend at the little house - I had to capture, this photo of the boy who is looking for boats going past the back garden! ... he's such a nosey so and so, I'm sure one day, I'll hear a splash and have to send Simon in to fish him out. LOL. 

Something I have noticed ... I do tend to go out for coffee rather a lot LOL.

I have been creating, so I'll take some photos and show you next.  Please don't think I've fallen off the end of the earth ... I am still here, and yes, still feeling positive about this year.

  2. A great start to your Project Life, I'm sure you'll come up with a way to put it all together that suits you. I love seeing little snapshots of life like that, if it was me I'd probably keep forgetting to take the photos!

  4. You'll be pleased you did create this reminder later in the year of what you have been up to. When I joined in with the calendar 365 project a couple of years ago I hoped no one noticed how much I met friends for coffee :) Love your iphone case that new bird design is so nice.

  14. What great photos of your weeks. I like the collage format. I noticed these first few weeks of the year that I go out to lunch a lot - I've been out with several friends and dear hubby. A friend emailed me to get together and it was over a week before I had a free date - what's up with that? LOL
