It's September!

Only thing is....this is all I've done so far! By the time I'd cleared a space on my new work table I realised I couldn't lay my hands on much else so with some Whisper pens I scribbled on to a CD case, spritzed, then dragged it across the pages. I quite like the unintentional wiggly effect on the edge of the page!
I love this calendar challenge run by the amazing Kate -see here if you want to know more - it has really helped to write down the progress of our move this year. We finally heard late on Friday that the sale had gone through and we handed over the keys at about five o'clock. We are slowly getting through the mountain of boxes that we piled up here just over a week ago (see here) As you can see we packed quite a lot into August(as well as goods and chattels) including a fantastic break in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire as well as going up to the caravan with our grandchildren and out and about with them!
 I must say it's lovely to have inky fingers again!
Thanks for looking, Chris

What an exciting time when you have just moved to a place you love.
When I see these calendar pages I always wish I could read some of the entries, the whole page looks so interesting.
