At last I have finished this commission book! I've just finished posting a special Page, just for the book's new owner, so she can see what I've made for her, and I've put the custom order in my shop (so she can pay me, hee hee!).
I can't show you the book yet - that wouldn't be fair... but I don't think she would mind some sneaky sneaks...
The sun has been shining on us... the garden looks lovely...
our willow tree is coming into leaf...
and some of my favourite flowers are blooming in the borders!

These two bags belong to J. He is off on a school trip tomorrow, for a week in Normandy, France. This is the first school holiday he has been on. Up til now, he has always said he didn't want to go away without his parents. However, last October, when the letters were sent home, J. asked if he could please go on the Normandy trip! So we said "Yes, of course!" - rather surprised, but pleased he had decided all on his own (especially as, in the summer holidays, he had been adamant about not wanting to go!).
So tomorrow morning, at the crack of dawn (well a bit after, but not much!), we will be walking round the corner, so he can get on the coach and go to France!
Luckily for everyone, they are going there by train, so no problems with cancelled flights. Phew!
