In spite of having lived so close for the past 40 years, Nigel had never visited Brownsea Island. Now I LOVE Brownsea - I really do - and I used to visit often as a child.
We rectified this a year ago and went to visit the island. It is a really beautiful unspoilt place. there is a lovely church, the castle, the open air theatre, the peacocks and the wonderful views from around the island. You also get a really nice trip round the 5 islands of Poole Bay on the way back.
I made the page as part of the DT work for ATDML a while ago and it never got uploaded.
I am busy working on my maya Road bungalow and am loving how it is coming out. I want to try an finish it this weekend. Apart fromt hat it's been a quiet day - apart fromt he hair dye. yes - that time of year again! The old grey temples were a little too much to cope with. The last time I dyed it it was way too red and I hated it. So this time I just went for plain old dark brown and it is gross.
My hair has been reddish tinged for so long that going back to my natural very dark brown is a bit too much to take. No highlights, no low lights, no variations no nothing just a solid lump of brown. Oh heck - back to washing my hair 6 times a day to ear it off quicker I guess.
A friend of mine who I have known for a long time and who has been a teamie of mine for a long time too has just started a fab new forum for cardmakers. It is very new but will be buzzing with challenges and sketches and inspiratiion. Do go check it out cos it looks awesome. See you there by clicking this link or the blinkie below .
