About Me

Married to my soulmate with 2 beautiful girls,and our English Springer Spaniel, Suki. Living a country life in Cambridgeshire, whilst baking, gardening, and photographing our daily lifes, where they find a place on my scrapbook pages.

My little place on the web

This blog is just that, my little place on the web.You will find my daily (or not so daily, hehe)life, my love for my new vegetable garden, baking, photography and my scrapbooking!

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Hello 2009!!!

blogged by me domestic goddess On 1/01/2009 09:52:00 PM

Wow can you believe its January 1st??. I do have alot of photos to share, but have not had either the time, nor energy to download photos today, I will be back tomorrow, with a Party Post! Instead, todays post is my WORD for 2009, see Ali Edwards blog for more.

Patience (ˈpā-shənz) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances. This can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties.

- I will keep to my fitness regime, and be patient. I am not going to turn into a marathon runner over night! Patience
- The weight loss will continue, and I will not let the Christmas splurge stress me out. No-one forced me to eat all those chocolates and mince pies! Patience
- To have more patience with the girls, they are only children. I must not expect so much from them. Patience
- Its my big one this year, I am 40!, and although a part of me is stressing, I must not. I must look forward to this new chapter in my life story. Patience
- You cannot do everything all of the time, except help when it is offered. Patience
- Scrapbooking is a hobby, scrapbooking is a hobby, remember Anna!!!

Last years word was Happiness, and considered the crap that was (note i say was, past tense!) thrown at us and the Bowkis family in general, I think I did a pretty good job of keeping happy. The last day of 2008, sure was the best day of the year!!! With a most wonderful surprise thrown into the day! More on that tomorrow.

I wish you all a happy and healthy 2009

With love

Anna xxxx
