Wow oh Wow! That's all I can say about the Lumiere light festival .... yes it was busy and yes we had to be herded in crowds around the city, especially up the narrow streets to the Cathedral, but generally, folks were chatty and happy and patient and it was so worth it. The city has been buzzing with a real feel good factor over the last four days...
Go here to see some of what I've seen over the last three nights in Durham...
We had a fabulous weekend, our dear friends Dave and Jayne came to stay and they have just left so I thought I'd do a quick post - I haven't downloaded the photos from my camera yet so I hope I've got some images as good as these :)
Its the last night of the show and we have enjoyed it so much we are going to brave the crowds and go to see the Crown of Light show at the Cathedral again - spectacular - if you get chance to go when the event comes here again (as I'm sure it will!) don't miss it!

I can't believe November is upon us already! Time is passing by all too quickly for me - while I was in the process of preparing November pages for my 365 journal, I flicked through earlier months - such a lot has happened this year some amazingly happy, such as the marriage of our youngest daughter :D and some desperately sad, like serious illness for family and friends :((
And I can reveal that in less than eight months we will be moving to Brighouse in West Yorkshire where Andy has been placed as Curate to St Martin's & St John's churches.
Yikes! It seems like yesterday that we moved to this lovely city of Durham and I confess to feeling more than a little sad to be leaving :(
But things are gearing up and if there is one thing I know, its that time waits for no man so my motto is "Onwards and Upwards"
I seem to have got out of the habit of blogging regularly but I do make stuff - honest - just never get round to posting what I've done! So here is a little of what I get up to in between posts....
I bought this book a year ago and love flicking through the pages.....
I thought I'd finally 'dip in' and have a go....this is my first attempt at making paper cloth, it was fun :) I shall use it to make ... something... don't know what yet but I'll let you know how it goes.
Here is the October page in my 365 journal, a challenge set up by Kate, which rolls over each year - jump in and have a go, its great fun, this is my second year and I've enjoyed looking back at my daily snippets.... quite enlightening!
I'm sure you've all read the news but I'm still giving a celebratory shout to Dyan, Ranger's new signature designer... we all know it is well deserved and now she will get to impart her wonderful quirky style further afield! Congratulations Dy!
