So This is Sunday


Still feeling low on energy here. There isn't anything much on my desk apart from a pile of papers I would love to turn into a December Journal, just as soon as I can. But I couldn't let today go past without my regular reminder that - it's Storytelling Sunday next week. This time round I'm suggesting a theme of "Coming Home" for Christmas. Any Christmassy coming home stories? or anything else "homely" you'd like to share? Of course, as always, any story at all will be very welcome: it doesn't have to have even a slight touch of the home about it! If you are about to start a Christmas album you could show us a page from that, or retell a story from a previous December scrapbook. It's the time of year for revisiting old favourites!

I'm hoping to have a new layout on the go soon; and I'm looking forward to beginning the posts in my "So This is Scrapbooking" series this week. I'm sure you'll enjoy reading them as much as I've enjoyed pulling them together. Until then - look, at least someone in the family has some zip. And some new roller skates. It only took three of the brightest minds in the family to work out how to put them on....

Ahh, lovely photo. That's why we spend so much time educating them :). Hoping you're on the mend and looking forward to the series when it arrives.

glad to see that the minds worked together and hope the skates were successful.

Hope you all feel well soon - and before next Sunday will be just about right for my December album I think.

Such a sweet photo! Hope you are all feeling back to normal very soon! Our family has missed the flu season so far but I'm sure it is just a matter of time. ;)

I see TTO has the hands off approach:) I missed storytelling Sunday last time (the first time that has happened) but hope to join in again next week.

Looking forward to STS x hope you start to feel much better this week x

Ooh, Ooh, my story will definitely be about reviewing things. I have deliberately not mentioned this happening because I am saving it for Storytelling Sunday - it even made the vampire laugh (phlebotomist)...

I am eager to learn how Little E got on with his roller skates. I have a story about my girl and roller skates and now you have reminded me am waiting for an appropriate STS to share it. x

Amy said...

Goodness, StS already?!
Take care of yourself, it is hard to recover from a lurgy like the one you have had.

Ginger said...

hmmm roller skates? He should be able to hoover now in double the speed!

Hope your feeling better soon Sian. I know I feel more tired these days too, but I'm sure it is just the lack of sunshine :)

laurie said...

how did the roller skating go? kids are always so excited about it but the activity is much harder to do than it looks. :-) hope you all continue to feel better this week.

Karen said...

Time is flying. I'm not feeling very productive either.I'm hoping it's because there was so much going on all weekend, and after a day or two I'll feel more energized.

Becky said...

Gosh, can't believe that STS has come round again already! Will have to get my thinking cap on! Lovely photo - the concentration on their faces is great!

Lisa-Jane said...

I thought you had been very quiet - I hope you are taking it easy and letting your self heal properly. I'm glad of the reminder about the weekend as I am away at a scrapping retreat. Hmmmm... thinking cap on... Take care xx

Scrappi Sandi said...

Great teamwork & a lovely photo! Hope you got some great shots of Little E up & about on eight wheels!! :D

A group effort generally creates the best memories :)

Sadly my energy is being drained elsewhere at the moment. We have a big decorating project underway and lots of furniture being upcycled - the paint is touching everything that stands still long enough!
My granddaughter turned 2 and she had roller skates for her birthday. She kept wearing her 8 year old sisters so decided she'd better have some of her own that fitted. Hope Little E enjoys his.
