The image is from the Pink Gem website. Janet sometimes does free images and this one was perfect for the card, so many thanks to Janet for sharing her talent. Just hope Richard and Toni like it.
The lovely Stephanie was going home at the beginning of June and I wanted to show her MY Derbyshire. Born and brought up in the north west of Derbyshire Longshaw and Ladybower were the obvious places to take her. My big bruvv had just started working for the National Trust and was at Longshaw on the day we went, so we spent a few hours with him there. This is the view from his workplace.... A couple of days later we went off to Derwent and Ladybower Dams and this photo must have been taken in roughly the same place as the one in the previous post of me with my lovely Dad.
Finally I couldn't go and not show you this photo of Alphie.....
When he's having his tea we put him in here, so that he doesn't eat Florence's tea as well - she's getting on, bless her, and doesn't eat as fast as he does. Because it has been so warm, the board we'd normally use to keep him in, was at the back door, so Matt found this little piece of off-cut worktop. Alphie could step over it. He could probably get between it and the door frame, but he stands there crying because he can't get out! Cruel, but funny!! It won't be long before he has it "sussed" out so we're making the most of it! :-D
You can't see it in these photo's, except maybe the Longshaw one, but I've scratched the lens on my lovely camera.... I know it often costs more to replace the lens than buy a new camera, but my lovely children clubbed together to buy this for me - it's a bridge camera, so not a cheap point and shoot. Anyone have any ideas please? I love it. Don't want to replace it, and feel very, very guilty because I always keep it in a little bag and have no idea how it got scratched....... Help?
O.K. Time to go and get ready for work. Speak soon. (And when I say speak soon, I am talking in the "grand scheme of things") :-) Thanks for reading. Jude.x
