25th of the month - part 3

Here is part 3 of my 25th of the month scrapbook. Parts 1 and 2 are here and here.
October found us on our holiday in Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. The weather was beautiful in comparison to wet and windy Britain. On the 25th we had arranged to go to Oasis Park for a day trip. It was a lovely day and we got to go on a camel ride, which was fabulous. Although the girls were not too keen as we had to climb up the side of a very steep mountain and the camels kept heavy breathing in their ears.
We also got to see a seal show, where the seals came out and kissed the audience. There was also a crocodile show and a parrot show. We had a fabulous day there.
November 25th was a school day and I went into the girl's classroom to help them with their painting lesson. They were making flags using wax resist, which was a really fun activity, even though it was a little bit dangerous with the hot wax.

The girls then had dancing in the evening, so I took them to that. I then came back to start preparing my Christmas journal, which I hold my hands up and admit, I haven't actually finished yet!

December 25th - the best 25th of the whole year. Christmas Day. You may notice that some of the pictures are covered over, this is because on that day we had friends come to dinner and I know they would not want their pictures on the Internet, so I kept them covered. We had a lovely day, opening our presents in the morning, then preparing the dinner over a couple of glasses of wine. Our dog, was a little impatient about how long we were taking to open presents, so he decided to help himself to his presents. I also had a little accident and dropped all the cabbage on the floor just before I served it. I will never live that one down.

After dinner we played lots of party games, which were very funny and entertaining.

I feel bad as I forgot to start my new 25th of the month this month, so after much thought I decided I would give it a couple of months before restarting it, so I won't be posting 25th pictures for a while.
I have one more part of my 25th to show you and at present it I still have some work to do on it, so I may not show it for a couple of weeks.
I hope you like this little glimpse into my life. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow I hope you bring it on Saturday so I can have a look. Well done though it looks really good.

  2. Very cool!

    Out of curiosity, how many scrapbooks do you have?

  3. Just in case you don't make it back to the comments on TT, I'll answer you here, too :-) In the state of Georgia, you have the option to renew for 5 or 10 years (I renewed for 10 back in 2007). But that doesn't mean you have to retake the test, just go back and get a new license with a new photo. :-) That's all!

  4. Should have asked you for some scrapping info when I wrote my article :) But didn't know ya then.

    it looks great

  7. Debi - there is so much of it because I don't work like everyone else, so I guess I have a lot more time on my hands. Does that sound bad? I do keep busy though!
