pitstop post!

Been dashing about so much lately, feel as though I only have time to refuel and then we're off again. I think part of this comes from the fact that after all the waiting we had to do we feel free! We spent part of last week up at our caravan and out and about around there - Windermere(beautiful!), Kendal(shopping!), Morecambe(a windy walk along the prom!) and gardening - and getting bitten in the process!
The weekend came and went, with visits to the Southport Airshow with our eldest grandson, and then a day out with the family to celebrate a birthday at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park -one of my very favourite places to visit and the best thing was.... there was a Miro exhibition!
I did sit still long enough to prepare my September pages properly
and we saw the most beautiful sunset
I think this was the same sunset that Lindsay saw from a little further south along the same coastline.
I have also been making cards but then Doh! forgot to take photos!
I've also been making a few journal pages...

still working on this
and this
...but now we're off again - I'm hoping to catch part of the Tour of Britain and the weekend will see my lovely hubby being zookeeper for the day at Blackpool zoo - it's going to be a family affair as we're all going along to see him enjoy his birthday/retirement present - we kept this a secret until we were at the sculpture park and he had no idea - he had said he didn't want presents or a fuss for either event so both of these were very low key...but of course by then we had already had other ideas he! he!
I'll be back with more pictures when I've caught my breath!
Thanks for looking, Chris

Your September calendar is gorgeous. I love all the turquoise. Wonderful sketchbook pages too.
Happy Creating.

Well first of all your September page is fabulous! Then the sunset is unbelieveable and you are in my old neck of the woods. (I used to live near Southport and I learned to fly at nearby Woodvale...brings back loads of memories.) The YSP is one of my favourite haunts, but we are too far away now. You seem to be really enjoying life and I am not surprised you feel free. Have bags more fun fritting around the glorious cool north.

I think you may need another set of Sept pages Chris. This month seems full already.

Blackpool Zoo is my favourite zoo! Can't believe where the time has gone, doesn't seem that long ago since you were first arranging the zookeeper for the day surprise! Looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks xx
