Sorry...



..I have no Pencil Lines layout to share this week :( I have no 'oomph' to scrap at the moment and in the end I gave up pushing papers and photos around and accepted that it wasn't going to happen!


Today Holly and I went along with the Bowkis family to Hyde Park to support Anna doing her run.Whilst we weren't blessed with the sunshine of last year and it was decidedly chillier,it didn't actually rain whilst we were there :) Being pro's at this supporters lark ;) Peter and I decided to walk the other way round the lake this year ,and by doing this we managed to see Anna near the finishing line too.I know I said it last year, but I am in awe of her (and anyone else who can run that distance !) and I know how much effort she put in.Although we arrived a bit later than last year, we just about managed to secure a place along the barriers down from the start line,thus guaranteeing a fleeting appearance on the TV coverage this afternoon! Okay, so you can't actually see 'us',but you can't miss the girls orange waterproofs and batons in the crowd! After the run, we sat by the Diana fountain to have our picnic and laugh at those who slipped on the muddy grass (this eventually included both Izzy and Lilly!) I loved being there and we will be back next year,so damn proud of you hun!



Whilst we were in london,Geoff took Em over to Watford,shopping.She had a great time and came home with some very funky new pumps. She seems to have grown up so much in just a week....

So pleased it didn't rain on you, sounds like a fun day, and I don't know how she does it. I am back into scrapping after a long break - but I know how it feels when it won't happen! x

Glad you dodged the weather, I am amazed as well by anyone who is able to complete this feat!!

Crikey - wish I had her energy! Or yours for going as support act. This horrible weather makes me want to stay inside and never venture across the door!

With you on the overwhelmed feeling too girl... letters, bills and jobs.. ugh!
