Pinch ... Punch

First of the month :)

... sorry about that, but its always something Simon and I still do ...Will we ever grow up lol.

Anyhow, I know I said I'd be back with a bit of crafting, but I still haven't photographed it - so for now, here's my week 4 in pictures. 


Firstly it was Chinese new year, so we had stir-fry ... yes, that really is as exciting as my life gets LOL.  Another photo of a coffee shop, I'm afraid - then a few things to sort out still with the solicitors, and also we went to the crematorium and have arranged a place for Mum & Dad's ashes.  We actually placed Mum's ashes in with Dad, so they're truly together again now.  Anyhow, I wasn't sure I wanted to photograph the office where we made the arrangements, but I am doing this to journal my life, so I did.  Next,  was Simon having a cold ... hence the day nurse.  And lastly, it was Simon's birthday this past Monday, but on Sunday we had my aunt and cousins over and I made a Red Velvet Cake for him ... although, sadly it didn't turn out as red as I had hoped.

I also said to Fi, that I'd join in with  this weeks, what's on your workdesk? ..... and, well to be honest, not a lot - I've got a new set of stamps from Stamping Up to make some Easter Cards ... and there are a couple of half finished layouts, but that's about it.  So really I need to get my act together, don't I?

  2. Sandra, I'm glad I found your blog through Julia's blog. Your week 4 layout is wonderful. Hey, my undone layouts, cards and albums are what keep me moving forward....my New Years Resolution is to finish all of them. Of course that was my last year's resolution also... :-) I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. I will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you a wonderful week. Eddie looks very happy to be with you.

  17. Such a lovely place to work! I sympathise on the solicitor front - its a horrid thing to have to do when you are still grieving. My Dad is about to have his house stripped of his lady-love's belongings because he is not next of kin and it all makes it so all about just stuff :-( Big hugs xx

  29. LOL at the 'pinch punch' thing Sandra. Well my younger sister and I still contact each other - now usually by text on the 1st day of every month and say 'White rabbits, white rabbits, white rabbits'!! *Ü* It's a childhood thing and just like you, I am a child and I DON'T WANT to grow up! LOL. Am loving to see your week in pictures. I want that APP...is it for Androids too? TFS. ~Glen~
