Sarah Youde (aka monroegirl)
Plymouth, UK.

I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.

I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring! Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)

Much Better!

I am feeling much better now thank goodness!

Mark was out plastering all day on Saturday so I actually did some scrapping. I spent most of the day on and off creating some layouts for my in-laws 40th Wedding Anniversary album. I have well and truly made a good start on it now so I am really pleased.

This was my favourite layout of the day because I love the colours, they are so pretty. I don't normally do heritage style pages but I thought this layout showcased the photo's nicely (even if I do say so myself!).

Yesterday we went to Truro. Just for something to do really all we ended up buying was a new book for the kids to have read to them at bedtime. I was really pleased with the book, I haven't seen this range before but they are tear resistant, splash resistant and great rhyming stories. Ben and Charlotte loved it too. We did go and have a Burger King as well which the kids liked, I had the scrummy sweet chilli chicken burger, mmmmmm.

Yesterday morning I turned on the hot tap in the kitchen and when I turned it off the water just kept coming out, scorching hot and wouldn't stop. Therefore, we had to isolate the hot water tank and we had no hot water all day. The plumber is here now trying to fix the problem for me. I think we may need a new faucet. On top of that my washing machine is spinning and the moment and it sounds like a rocket is about to take off by the back door; we have to invest in a new one in the next couple of months.

I intend to do another couple of layouts for the album today.
