I scrapped!!!! ..... older post, trying to catch up!

Well last weekend Clint was away on a work/boys weekend Golf Trip in Belfast. So I had the house to myself.

On the Friday night I went out for Jess' leaving do. Jess is a lovely girl I met while teaching at my last school. She's an aussie too and originally from Ballarat. We get along like a house on fire, 'get' each other and I must say I have really valued her friendship over here. She is heading over to volunteer in an orphanage in India for a couple of months and then heading back to aus. for christmas....she has quite an adventure ahead of her.

Only got one picture from the night out.....

We went to this cocktail bar in Covent Garden, and oh my the drinks were delish. Then we headed to the 'Walkabout' in Temple....was a fun night!
I got some teary movies to watch on the Sat. night and had a quiet night in. I watched the Reader with Kate Winslet and He's just not that into You. Both movies I really enjoyed, cried in both, as I do, haha.

Finished this layout during the week too.

Layout Title: Putting on the Ritz

Products: My Little Shoebox patterned paper, vintage music paper, Doodlebug Frills in Black, Hambly Screen Print transparency, Pink Paislee letter stickers, American Crafts Thickers, Making Memories letter stickers, black lace, rhinestones, Prima flowers, buttons, coaster from The Ritz, staples, black thread.

Sunday I spent the morning pottering around and the afternoon scrapping 2 pages! Both of the pages are of Clint, probably cos I missed him while he was gone. I'm happy with them both but the quality of the photos I took are terrible.....I really need to get Adobe Photoshop so I can edit my layout photos like I used to.

Felt good to spend some time scrapping....hoping I can continue doing some here and there.

Clint is back at work, working long hours at the same hotel. I have tried to pick up supply teaching, but from what I can understand - there is not a lot of work available. I am going to just have to be patient, and be grateful for whatever work I can get.

Half term break begins this Friday.....I have gotten a nannying job for the 10 days. I will be living with this family in there house in Wiltshire for the whole of the half term. I am really looking forward to this challenge of looking after these 3 little kiddies (15 month old boy, 4.5yr old boy, 7 year old girl).

Hopefully will update soon with the last of our Europe trip photos.....xoxo
