I am getting quite bad at not finishing what I start - or at least not finishing things in a timely fashion.
Today I was sorting albums out and happened upon the Poland album. It was a little sad. There were not many pages in there and so I have set myself a little project this week to try and scrap the pages I want to for that album.
It was never going to be a big album. We were only in Krakow for three nights and to be fair, quite a lot of what we did was not necessarily things I would want to scrap. We went primarily to visit Auschwitz and whilst I will record it I didn't want to sensationalise it.
Anyway - I have made myself a promise to finish the pages and to upload those I have made here.
We never knew until we visited that Amber was such an important commodity in Poland. There were some amazing displays in the Cloth Hall in the centre of the old market square
Lots of amber was on sale and no, we didn't succumb.
I even dug out wire and beads to make an 'amber necklace' as an embellishment.
When we were in Krakow it was cold - seriously bitingly cold. It was reading -7 on two of the days and snowing. I loved this picture of Nigel by WarwekCastle all wrapped up like Nanook of the North
It might have been cold but it didn't stop us exploring and seeing things
And this one is the incredible, huge vast stunning (I could throw so many superlatives at it) Kingla chapel int he salt mines, hundreds of feet below ground and totally breath-taking. I still cannot believe we went there.
It has been quiet here but that is always good as it gives me scrapping time. October is always quiet on the work front too -well for me but not for Nigel. There are no public exams (though November is going to be busy busy busy which is good) and apart from from a few Saturday's when I have been invigilating I have been a lady of leisure. I like that. Thankfully yesterday was NOT a work Saturday. And isn't it stupid. I think we are still so conditioned that it seems harsh to work on a Saturday. Which is stupid. When you only work one day a week why does it seem harsh that that day is a Saturday.Just because all our working life Saturday has been a day off for us.
Today I am thankful for
- the chance to visit so many interesting places
- peace and quiet
and now - yup surfing again - some SIZE MATTERS pictures
A gorilla's hand against a humans
the size of a meteor (a big one) compared to LA
some road signs are HUGE
If Saturn was where the moon is
a bear's paw
I never knew this statue (David I think) was this big
Titanic compared to a modern cruise ship
a wind turbine blade
an eagles claw
I didn't think these trucks were that big until I spotted the school bus in the picture!
