A Bit Of Everything

My blogging has been pretty sparse the past few days.  If I'm honest it's because I haven't really got anything to say, which is unusual for me.  Thought I'd share a few photos instead.
The park I walk through to get to and from the station each day.
This was taken around half 7 one morning, it was so peaceful.
I have been having a little play around with my blog layout, I'm still not set on this design but it will do for a while at least.  I get bored pretty quick so don't be surprised for it to suddenly change from time to time. 
The river running through the park.  This was taken one evening while the canoeists were going out for a paddle, which is a regular thing during the summer months.
My weekend was pretty quiet, I spent Saturday with James wandering around Brick Lane, I didn't take any photos, I guess as I have been there so many times before I didn't think to get the camera out.  I also came home empty handed, as we are really trying hard to save the pennies for that mortgage, it is a hard struggle but will be so worth it in the end, it just means for this year at least we will be going without quite a few of the luxuries in life we are both used to. 

Taken from round the corner to James' house, I love going past this, makes me feel like being on the set for Made In Dagenham!
I have also taken my first step to finishing off some WIP's (Work In Progress) or UFO's (Un-Finished Object's) whichever you would prefer to call them.  I have joined Laa Laa's UFO support group in the hope this will give me the kick up the bum I need.  I have also vowed to myself and now to you all, that I will be buying no more craft related items until I have finished projects that I have already started or already bought the equipment needed to complete - there I have said it.

It all got a bit too much for this poor little fella, I hate finding dead bee's, so sad.  However he found himself a pretty good resting place.
I'm working on a few things to share with you over the next few days so although I have not been blogging as much as usual I am still here, I promise.

Some yummy cupcakes James bought home for me from a food and drink festival he was working at.  I didn't eat them all myself, I did share them, honest!
I'll be back to share all with you soon.

  7. Saving for a mortgage can be tough, especially when it means scaling back on things and going without. But it's so worth it in the end! Your walk to work looks lovely, nothing like a stroll in the morning sunshine to prepare you for the day!xxx
