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)

Will It Last?

The weather I mean. I really hope it does last as I am having a lovely time in the sun :)

I have been out in the garden nearly every day this week topping up my tan! Only an hour or so but still it is great. I look and feel so healthy and it is all to do with the sun.

I got up at about 9.30 this morning which was lovely (hubby let me have lay in) and then a did a manic clean through the house. Ben was as good as gold whilst I was doing this but Charlotte just wanted to join in all the time and getting in my way. Eventually she went off to play with her kitchen and food and I managed to get on.

So this afternoon I have been lazing around in the garden. I did come in for a little while and Charlotte was doing a spinning dance in the kitchen so I took a couple of snaps. They came out really well! I played about with one of them to get rid of the kitchen background.

After the kids had their tea I sorted out my wardrobe and made it all look nice and tidy. I took out all the old rubbish clothes and made sure everything was hung properly on the hangers. I keep going to open the wardrobe door now as it looks so pretty in there!

Last night I sorted out papers, cardstock and embellishments for a new layout so I really want to have a go at that so I determined that I will do some tomorrow evening as hubby is out with his mates.
I really do have to do some scrapping as I need to complete a 40th Wedding Anniversary album by the middle of July and I have only done 3 layouts so far. I am beginning to panic about it a bit. The photo's I have managed to get hold of to scrap are not very good though and I am finding it really difficult to get inspiration to do the pages!
