How do you manage the mundane?  Usually I find time to create, meet with friends, or do something to change my sceenery or routine.  But I've not been able to do these things because even on my days off I have been busy working just to keep one step ahead.  So every day has felt much like the last.  And today, while my body demanded rest, I was lurred to the shoe shop by my daughter.  I always like to catch up with her when I have a chance, and spending time with my granddaughters is something I can never resist. 

Even on days when they are buying new school shoes. 

Even when my body is saying 'have a quiet day doing nothing', and I'd rather someone wait on me, hand and foot.   Here's why:

 Wren goes exploring while her mum turns her back


Summer & Ivy admire shoes and try out boots.

They certainly keep us on our toes!

Then it's time to head to MacDonalds for lunch and a play before heading home.


And now back home it's finally time to put my feet up and unwind.

A restful day?

No....   but I wouldn't have it any other way.  There will be plenty of other days for creating and relaxing. 

What have you done to give your day a lift?


  1. Today I went to Dunelm Mill to browse the duvets, towels etc to get some idea how much I need to spend when Gracia goes to Newcastle but I did have to pop into Asda for a piece of lemon drizzle cake and a cup of tea as it was on my way home!

  2. I'm with you :) enjoy the moment and then you have great shots for scrapping on those days when you get crafting :)

  3. We were at the shoe shop yesterday too! We were celebrating because TSO has grown to a size 5! (I am a 2 and can never find shoes to fit)

  4. I love that top photo of Wren - nicely snapped! Glad you had such a good day; if my son/daughter and grandchildren were closer, I wouldn't want to be missing out on any chance to be with them either. :)

  5. You are right...there will be other times for resting....enjoy every moment with those lovely granddaughters
