Ladies who lunch!

I have had a wonderful day today. Alex was back to his normal chirpy, smiley and happy self contentedly gurgling away for much of the day. This meant that my lunch with a girl friend from work was great. He sat peacefully for the first part and gently drifted off to sleep while we were eating. Who could ask for more. It was so great to catch up with Sheila. She is expecting her second child in October and so we were exchanging pregnancy stories. We went to a place called Hanrahans where they do a wonderful all you can eat for £5 buffet. Following that I popped into work where I saw several of my colleagues who all cooed over Alex. This photo is of a very sleepy Alex just before his final feed of the day today.
This afternoon saw me playing in the sitting room with Alex and sitting on the floor with a scrapbook layout in progress. My knees will never be the same again, but I completed it. It was based on this weeks Pencil Lines sketch #41 by Cath. I thought it was a wonderful sketch for showcasing 5 lovely pictures of Alex smiling and earning his nickname of 'Smiler' the title of the layout. The journalling says 'it is easy to see how Alex got the nickname Smiler at the age of three months'. I love the colour combination of blue and yellow and as there is so far very little blue in Alex's scrapbook I decided it was high time that I featured this colour scheme.
I also received another wonderful ATC from Dawn Martindale today entitled 'On the prowl'. The main focus of this ATC is a photograph that Dawn took of a jaguar on a recent trip to Chester Zoo. I love big cats so this card is perfect for me. I love the clever use of the frame on this card. I now owe her a card so I guess the next few days is going to see me making ATCs for a change. More tomorrow,

Pleased you had a nice 'girly' lunch Caro and that layout with the 'tiled' effect is great. Well done.
