Rose lemonade!

Rose lemonade is my favourite drink... but it's incredibly hard to find! I hoped I could find some in London... looked everywhere... Selfridges....sweet shops... had just about given up when went into 'Little Waitrose' in King's Cross station to get a sandwich...  there it was! Got a couple bottles. That was a week go and I've not touched them... because I know it'll be months before I find another bottle! (Fentimans, if you're reading this, please get stores in Doncaster to sell this. I will buy it all.)

Hello! It's been a week or so since I last posted...
On Tuesday we went to London for a day! It was so much fun and flew by. (Scrapbook pages to follow next week!). 
On the bus into town that day to get the train I heard some kids saying 'have you got a sore throat too' 'yeah', so obviously I caught something and spent yesterday feeling poorly and it was horrible and I was so frustrated because I couldn't do anything... Luckily, Nathan came round for a bit to make me feel better. (I didn't ask, he insisted, even though I told him not to because I felt such a mess!) Feeling a lot better now though but getting my appetite back wouldn't go amiss.... There is cake from Betty's Tea Rooms (courtesy of Nathan's mum) sitting on my desk right now and I don't feel like eating it. Hmph
I dedicated this morning to getting some scrapbooking done. I've been in a dilemma because my scrapbook has page dividers stuck throughout and they can't be moved so I had one page - divider - another page before I had another double page spread and I've been stuck for something to stick on the single pages. 
So I had a rummage through my pictures folder and found this photo of Nathan modelling the scarf I knitted for him. For some reason I always end up surrounding such photos with flowers and butterflies... but they match the colour scheme. And purple is his favourite colour.

Going to Festival of the Plough in Epworth tomorrow (because there's a craft fair and fluffy chickens) so maybe I'll get a scrapbook page or two from that as well!

Scrapbook pages using photos from our day in Scarborough last month!

It seems so long ago now... It was such a lovely day (bit chilly mind)... but I took my camera and got some lovely photos of the beach and bay (and of course the customary selfie...haha)
(My dad came home with a new printer last week and this is the first time I've printed photos with it. Prints really fast and the quality is phenomenal!)
