A bit of a round up for the shortest month.
Yes, let's get the not-so-good out of the way first.
- RIP Gary the Magnificent. he was the very best of hamsters and he lived a good life; and last week we buried him behind the trampoline in a special box I'd been saving for an important occasion. It's not the same in the dining room without him.
- A dental crown falling out of my mouth and onto the street without any warning. Okay, so The (Not So) Small One scooped it up quickly and the dentist put it back in that afternoon., but, still..eugh..
- The failure of the coffee machine after seven years. two weeks is a long time to wait for it to be fixed..
- Bad pencil sharpeners. A very small thing, but surprisingly life un-enhancing, when every pencil in the house has a broken lead..
- The beautiful bracelet and earring set I received from Lisa. I love it! Lisa blogs with honesty about the challenges life throws at her - I think I met her through Gotta Craft - and I always like to see an update pop into my Reader. You can see what she makes at A Little of What You Fancy. Very pretty!
- The boy. The bow tie. The birthday. But I think we've already covered that one.Last night he finally received the university offer he'd been waiting for and he's delighted. Look out Scotland, he could be headed your way
- Little E, on his holidays. I believe that was pretty hot.
- The start of the Six Nations Rugby . Saturday afternoon. Big bag of crisps. Sorted.
A short month and a busy one with ups and downs, highs and lows. We're looking forward to the lighter days now with a spring in our step. Come on in March!
I'm keeping the pages in my round up series a bit roughed up and casual. I want them to look like an old cuttings book, a bit curled around the edges. This one has turned out pink and vintage, with flowers, which is exactly what Punky Scraps are looking for in their challenge this month. Handy!
Before I go for today: a reminder that it's Storytelling Sunday this weekend. Yes, it's that time again. Already! I know lots of you are away on holidays and retreats and I hope you have a wonderful time! Give me a wave and bring home a story to share if you can. I'll be here, holding the fort til you get back...
