I started on Friday evening by having an impromtu cyber crop with my scrapping buddy Marie. A cyber crop is where you scrapbook whilst talking online so we were discussing what we were doing on MSN. Anyway, I scrapped this picture of Emily from 4 years ago. I got a book about graphically scrapbooking from the library and, being an ex-graphic designer I thought I'd try some!
Yesterday I went to a GUCH patient day. GUCH is the charity I belonged to (it stands for Grown-Ups with Congenital Heart Disease) but I've only talked to people online before. It was so lovely to meet other people and talk to them; it turned out that most of us had the same problems, concerns etc so it was very comforting. I made 2 really good new friends yesterday too; Wendy and Gilly have the same condition as me so I was really interested in them anyway, but when we met we all got on like a house on fire! We went for a coffee after the meeting and sat there for hours discussing our conditions but also everything else in life! I think I've got a couple of friends for life there!
When I got home, the kids had had a great day in the garden:
Also, Emily found the beginnings of a beehive in her playhouse. It was only small but ever so perfectly formed (a bit like her!!):
Right, better be off: we're about to light the BBQ, I have my assignment to do and Rach has just sent me the scraplift so I need to get cracking (stand by Kim!)
