Lovely weekend

It started on Friday night and I went to see Les Miserables with a friend. I cried the whole way through, singing along the famous songs I had heard so many times before at the musical in London. (It was my favourite show when I was young and working as an Au pair.). I thought the actors were amazing and all deserved an Oscar but I was the most touched by Fantine's solo. Truly fantastic.
Then on Saturday I went for a day scrapping with some lovely ladies. I must admit, I did struggle leaving Violette behind for a day, well, from 10.00 till 15.00 but I still had a great time and as usual I ate far too many cakes and chocolates, hence I am starting my diet today ! ( hmm, how long is this one going to last !! ).
The gorgeous Lisa taught us through a class in the morning. Again, I was taken away from my comfort zone with some serious misting and scrunching and general mess but I like my page and it will be a lovely souvenir. Firstly because of the hidden journaling but also because I will remember this page as my first day away from my baby and I must confess, Andrew and the kids did manage well without me. ( sadly !! ) ( It is hard admit that your baby can be happy without you ! ). But anyway, here is the page...

I also got time to add a few pages to my mini book. I am really enjoying this and hopefully Violette can look back and see what a gorgeous baby she was. ( Am I been biased here !! ).


Talking about Violette. ( This is all I seem to be doing these days, when I am not finding myself talking about poo !! ) , she is 4 weeks today, horray, and growing nicely. She can now hold her head and focus. She enjoys her baby gym and can stay awake for up to two hours. She is still not sleeping through before you ask, but it won't be long before she only needs feeding twice between 19.00 and 07.00, so I can't complain. Well, ok, I will because last night was not such a good night and I feel and look like ... today !But here she is..
Have a good week everyone. It is still snowing out there so hopefully it will settle and we can have a quiet week off school !!


  1. It was so good to see you on Saturday, you look so well and beautiful as always. I love your LO and just adore that mini. The 'feet' page is still my fave. xxx

  2. Anne, I have just read my first of your lovely blogs!! What an amazing way of documenting your gorgeous daughter's first few weeks and no doubt you will continue this as she grows up. Wow wish I could do something like this but I am sooooo uncreative, but you are so inspiring that I may just have to start scrapbooking too!! Where do you find all the wonderful bits and pieces to make it so beautiful?? See you at school soon. Still yet to meet Violette outside your scrapbook! Jen (Amalie & Isla's mummy!!)xx
