I've just finally sat down.
I've had one of those mornings where I've just rushed from one to the next.
Early to start work, quick hoover and dust downstairs, kids to sort for school and straight grocery shopping. Got a tomato, red pepper and basil soup prepped and in the crock pot for later. Had a mad dash around Louis' room, it desperately needed it, hoovered upstairs, cleaned all the mirrors and now finally starting work again. I hate doing housey stuff during 'work time' but sometimes it has to be done. The kids bathroom and the guinea pig need cleaning after the school run later, I want to make sundried tomato and feta cheese bread with the kids, Louis has a friend over for tea and then we all head off to the boys footy match for 6pm. Phew!!
Two days in a row like this. At least I never have time to get bored.

I still have more Cocoa Daisy pages from the weekend to share.
My lovely friend Anna set this challenge to scrap something book related, use at least 5 layers and for typewriter style font on the page.
Ade took these photos of me in the garden last month.

He got me reading Susan Hill books which I've been loving.
This months Cocoa Daisy Kit,Vintage Ink just keeps going and going. I can't believe how much stuff I've made with it.
This challenge is here if you want to see more.

Anna is in my thoughts lots today. They are having baby #3.
It's 12noon in Sweden now so I'm wondering if she's been born yet.
I can't wait to hear.

One of Ronda's challenges was to be inspired by some album covers she posted here.
I took a Paramore cover and came up with this below.

My latte is now finished, so work now.
Thank you for stopping by.
See you tomorrow xxx
