Yesterday was a good day. D's mum came over for the day. We haven't seen her for a while, because I haven't been able to manage the drive to Wiltshire & back in one day and she can't drive, so depends on friends for lifts etc. Also, her husband and Dave's Nanna were both ill and she was very busy with their needs. However, Nanna died about 3 weeks ago and the funeral was just before Easter. Her husband is in a care home, so she doesn't have to care for him full time now. She was offered a lift here and back from a friend, so decided to come and visit us. We had lunch in the garden and a walk to the local park, all in lovely sunshine. It was a really lovely day. No photos available yet - they are still on D's mobile phone...
Today has been a relaxed day too. I got my jobs out of the way this morning and managed some scrapping this afternoon. I have been working on the commission Photo Album, but took a break from it, to work on my "Project 2009" mini-album. I already posted the first two pairs of pages, but it was in January, so here are all the pages so far, including the 4 I have just finished. I'm up to Day 10 now... Still quite a way to go!

A double-layout for Day One
Days 2 and 4...
Day 5 - the silver writing on the left says "Rain, rain go away; come again another day!"
Day 6 - the writing reads "tho' the rain it raineth every day"
The left hand page is for both Day 8 and Day 9, but Day 10 has its own page - Jeff installed the big steel joist by himself, as the brickies were not working that day. He used a pulley and managed to lift it and fix it in place. I kept out of the way... I was afraid of distracting him at a crucial moment and making him drop it!
I aim to keep going on this now. There's a fair way to go and I need to get on with it, if it's ever going to be finished!
