I have a plan

I loved all the ideas in Shimelle's second prompt today. I never use up the numbers in a page of alphabets except maybe to use in a date format so counting up things and making that the focus of the page is such a good idea and may be something I use in a layout to show more of our trip to Bath for our 30th anniversary.

But I also like the idea of using the alphabet within the block of journalling, and I think that this will work really well with the ideas I jotted down yesterday re advice for my children. I will have to re-write it a bit so that it fits in well but that doesn't matter because my writing was so illegible in places that it really needs a bit of work done on it before I even think of putting it on a page!

I shall leave you with a photo of something that I bought in town this morning. Look how shiny and new it is .... And compare it to the phone I spent most of my teenage years chatting on - how times change eh?

That was the page I liked best too, wasn't it lovely?

It's funny to think the kids wouldn't even know how to use a phone like this without being shown.

Oooh, I'd love an I-phone, I'm jealous! Love the older phone too though, it's very retro! Glad you're enjoying Shim's latest class, I hope you'll let us see the journaling once you've polished it! x

The phone we had when I was growing up was very like that one :-) But these days I'd much rather have an iPhone!!

Very cool. Maybe scrap the two different phone numbers, along with the years and other such numbers.

I love the yellow phone and Rinda's idea is a great one .. might have to tuck that one away for a rainy day!

We had one of those phones given to us as a wedding present but ours is black. I can't wait for our lounge to be finishd and I can get out my treasures again.
