Hi everyone this will be a rushed post today.
We finally got our car back late yesterday afternoon. If they had told us the reason why there was a hold up I wouldn't have minded so much, but the silence (which was about a part not turning up a soon as it should have, then another part that was sent being too big!) was really annoying!
We had to do a very rushed online grocery order on Friday afternoon which meant I forgot a couple of important items for a new recipe I planned making so we had a short village walk on Saturday.
The time I spent on the phone also meant that it ate into my crafting time, which as I needed to schedule posts wasn't good.
I did manage to make this page for Valerie's 'Anything Goes' theme at Art Journal Journey blog
The base for my page was a stencil mop up to which I added ink through some sequin waste and some stamps by Jo Firth Young from Paper Artsy. The main image is a Trish Latimer girl. She is grounded by some washi tape and some stamping.As you can see, the river is very calm before it reaches the weirThe old village must have been pretty in the past.
The words are from two separate stamps(one masked off) by Visible Image.
We had a lot of rain last week so the river was quite fullWe walked on the new path that was made after the work on that side to do repairs the bridge was finished.We got some different views of the island, that as you can see has almost disappeared
Lovely to see new greenery...and newly planted trees to replace the ones they uprooted!
We were also lucky to have youngest and partner to pick us up to meet middle son and two grandchildren at Styal.
I forgot to take photos until we were almost ready to leave.
It was a lovely afternoon, which included a light lunch.
The weir here was rushing over too!The heron obligingly posed and so did the family! (I refuse to short this word to the modern 'fam'!!!)
Looking forward to seeing the Magnolia tree when we get back from....Paris, yes we're off tomorrow!
I just have time to show you the drinks we had with our meal on Wednesday when we took our car in. Here we are with our shared starter of garlic bread - we were also given some delicious pasta crisps.My drink was Apple and Sour Cherry(delicious) and hubby had a fancy orange drink!
I may not get here for T next week but I will share my Paris photos when we get home.
Thanks for looking, Chris
