Pencil Lines #44

We have had a wonderful day today. Spent this morning in the garden playing with water pistols and draeing on the slabs with chalks. Our patio looks like a CSI set as I have drawn round Oliver in various poses... either that or a Keith Haring drawing:) This afternoon we went to a BBQ at a friends house and had a great time. The kids were busy playing *mostly* nice with each other, and squirting each other with spray bottles... all ended up dripping wet an most went home just in undies...LOL!!! Lots of laughs with the adults too... real belly laughs where you think you may split if you laugh any more. And all this enjoyed in glorious sunshine.

Finally got round to doing some scrapping, but not until 9:45pm, once we were in, the boys in pjs and bed, bottles sterilised and milk made, washing put in the machine ready for the line in the morning, snap made for Rob for tomorrow and a quick shower to remove all traces of icky sun cream.
So this weeks PL sketch is inspired by Jems. She always does such lovely LOs of her and her man, that I thought i'd have a go. Rob and I have never been lovey dovey, we are always putting each other down and making sarky comments, but it is all done in an affectionate way. When he wants something he calls me Honey Bunny Light of My Life, and I always respond with Knobbly Flob Thorn in My Side... I don't know where the knobbly or the flob comes from, he isn't knobbly or flobby, but it rhymes with Rob so that's good enough. This is just our way, and if either of us changed we would think that there was something wrong. We both know that we are loved by the other, and I hope that our silliness and sarcasm lasts forever:)

Bloom
A period of greatest beauty, find 'bloom' in your space today.


We don't do flowers or plants in this house or garden... mainly because I forget to water them or the dog eats them. However, this little fella was a birthday pressie from my bestest friend, Annie. And I love him so much I am taking very special care not to kill him!!! So while the pepper plant is in bloom, it iss also a play on words as the peppers are 'bloomin hot'. I chopped one very finely and added it to a salad, but didn't tell Rob... so funny!!! He drank so much water he ran the risk of bursting..LOL!!!
