Firstly folks, I thought I would share this photo with you of my girlies. They had to dress up for school yesterday as Victorian children. Don't they look cute? They even had to take their lunch packed in greaseproof paper and a cloth and were not allowed to bring crisps, chocolate or bottle drinks. Rather authentic, don't you think?
The school hired an actor to play a Victorian headmaster and I have to say he was rather scary. He banished all the parents from the playground, you should of seen us shift!
Saturday was my first scrap day of the school year and I was so excited to get back into it. I missed the last one as we were on holiday and I found it quite difficult to get back into. Usually I make at least four pages, but I struggled on Saturday to make even two.
This layout shows us leaving the hotel to travel home. Everyone came out to see us off, all the wonderful Thomas Cook staff who I can proudly say I am still in contact with a year later.
A quick update on my writing. As you know I started my trial run of NaNoWriMo on Friday and I have to say so far so good. Each day I have managed to fit in my daily writing quota and if I keep going the way I shall have a 50,000 word draft written by the end of the month. I also need to start planning the story I want to write for the official NaNoWriMo in November. I have a germ of an idea, which I really need to flesh out, but I am feeling rather confident at the moment.
My first book club meeting is scheduled for Thursday evening. I have made a list of points raised from all your lovely comments in order to help us organise our fledgling group. I cannot thank you enough for providing me with so much information, you are all fabulous. I have picked out six books from my own collection which best reflect my reading style and on Thursday we will decide which one to read. I shall write a post on Friday showing you the six books we chose from and you can have a guess at which one we chose.
That's all from Really Random Tuesday.
