Not a pleasant sight. We have a burst sewerage pipe with a lot of them need replacing, consequently the digging up of the garden and lawn in all its glory. They have repaired the bulk of the pipes on our land and will continue into the neighbours and the road so they will be around for some time. Thank goodness for insurance!!!!
The noise, the smell and the unsightly view has meant a more indoor approach to events this week. So I have finally finished the holiday scrapbook, not before time I might add.
The tickets and boarding card have been included in the layout of Wilbur on the ferry.
Postcards of places we have visited or stayed have been a main focus on some of the layouts, enhancing some of the photographs.
The scorecard became the backdrop for an afternoon at the bowling alley. A timely reminder that Granny has still got what it takes and was the overall winner/not that I am competitive, it is the taking part that matters.
Maps were another useful addition, showing the area we were in and enhancing once again the photos.
A combination of tickets, postcards and maps make for an interesting layout and show a more detailed outline of places visited.
I am really pleased with the overall look of the scrapbook, it tells a story of the holiday that just using photos would not have covered. I have also included snippets from tourist guides, programmes and menus on some of the pages. A lovely record of an amazing holiday.
The weather has really picked up today and now that the hole in the garden has been refilled the smell has disappeared so hopefully we will be able to sit and enjoy a glimpse of the summer season.
We are away from tomorrow visiting Victoria our eldest daughter so I will not be around for a few days. Have you any plans in place for the weekend?
See you soon.
