Hi everyone this is a recent piece that I finished it is my view of the sixties I worked for Cole bros in the sixties and believe me the place to be was all the big cities .I made lots of new friends in my line of work I was a silver service waitress at Cole bros restaurant. The time was taken up listening to all the new groups on the go the charts were littered with talented musicians and wonderful music.I was often early for work just so I could go into one of the below street level cafes to have a coffee and put money into the juke box to play the beach boysGood Vibrations.We had a social club and went ten pin bowling and the best evening was always Saturdays as the staff called for a drink in the Sportsman on Cambridge street before having our two days off.There were mods and rockers and daytrips out to Chester zoo the sillohette club down London road was a good place to hang out where two brothers played all the latest hits and everything was blacked out windows and Dancing and no alcohol .The stones and the beatles music was amazing and radio caroline had not been sunk and was still riding the waves .The city vibrated to the tune of the young this was our time this was my time ..

What is rocking my world this friday well I have been a real giddy bod this week as I recently got hold of an address for an old friend .Her Name is Rita and I have spent a life time wondering where she went to. We lost touch in 1970 after she moved away from south Yorkshire and I have just spoken to her on the phone she now lives in Devon and and I cannot believe it has taken all this time to catch up with each other I am still up in the air about it we were such good friends and I have so missed her over the years .Lots to catch up on and I have every intention of keeping in touch .I know it is Saturday but It still rocked my Friday just the thought that she might ring.Life still has some surprises and speaking to Rita was a real blast from the past loved it.

It is my 17th Wedding anniversary today and amazingly My hubby Shaun had managed to find card and chocolates to put on my pillow before I went to bed, so he was a day early not half a day late like he has been in the past .That was a pleasant surprise and set the tone for the bank holiday weekend.

This is a two page layout on the theme sisters .I have four sisters some I am close to and some not so close, I have some fantastic memories of life knowing my sisters but have enjoyed one of them in particular in later life as all my sisters are a lot younger than me and I spent my childhood growing up with my five brothers ,it was ten years after me that my first sister came along and what a blessing she was it made a change from all those boys.Anyway I needed to journal it .
Hi everyone just thought I'd put a few of my recent pages on my new blog. Thank you for the lovely comments on my first post and thank you for following me I officially have 4 followers woohoo.
Can you believe that I've been playing with my photos all morning and I'm still in my PJ's I can see my blog eating up chunks of my life - but it is fun isn't it!
This first image is about how elephants never forget and reminds me of a difficult period of my life with lots of falling out, it isn't a happy memory but it is a memory nevertheless. This image is in a gorgeous 2006 diary that I found out that I'd never written in - how awesome is it that I can actually use something that I thought would just end up in the recycle box. It's a lovely A4 size and is leather bound so should take some hammering!
I love this image and just had to journal it and reminds me of all the adventurous men that I've met in my life!
This image reminds me on my Dad as he's wearing a flat cap, it would have been his birthday this last week and he would have been 84. My Dad was an awesome man and had 10 children and many many grandchildren. I miss him so much but it's been difficult in recent years as dementia robbed him of his memory. This page however reminds me of what a happy person he was always so gracious and loving and fun and just great company so it was nice to remember him in this way!

First ever blog, very new to this but follow quite a few, I like to see what people are up to and I've met some great people through Dyan at AFTH when I attended a beginner's art journaling course in February - had an awesome time and haven't stopped journaling since - it's taking over my life but I love it!
I've reached the big 60 recently and am now semi-retired which has given me much more time to come and play on my new laptop and with all my lovely paints and inks and papers and journals etc.
I promise to come back later once I've worked out how to photograph my journals and put them on my computer! See ya later!
