Strawberry fields forever

We had a lovely family weekend. Swimming twice, a trip to the cinema to see 'The Hulk' which we all really enjoyed. Dinner at Pizza Hut...Yummy! and a trip to Kitley to pick some super sweet strawberries and raspberries. Now that's what I call a good weekend!
Today, I had an unexpected day off, so I've had a good old tidy up, and done some baking. I've made a quiche, and baked some scones to have with the strawberries we picked, just need to buy some clotted cream now! The diet will have to resume tomorrow!

Must do better!

I'm not very good at this blogging lark really....keep forgetting to update it. Life just seems to get in the way and before I know it another week (or three) has passed.

I've been busy working and generally out and about with the kids.

I have managed to do a bit of scrapping though, I've completed the challenge for the chipboard swap over at Just Bex. I swapped with Tracy and got this........

I had a play around with it and decided to ink and emboss it with sparkly embossing powder and made this.......

Hope you like!

The Boss

Yep, Bruce is back. I want to see him last Wednesay at Old Trafford and he was awesome!
He opened with 'No surrender' and within 30 seconds had the crowd eating out of his hand.
Lots of the songs were from the new album, but he also did requests, picking signs held by the audience.... how many rock stars will do that? He belted out song after song with such energy, it's hard to believe he is 58.
I hadn't been to a been rock concert for ages, but boy was it worth the wait!
