Wonderful Wednesday #38

Good morning! I am currently laying in bed, waiting to get up for work and finishing off this week's wonderful list. 

There seems to be a heavy weather theme this week! Shall we crack on? 


A Beautiful Sunset 

For the next two months or so, I will be working occasional nights and weekends to complete some of our filming in time for September. I enjoy being on shoots but giving up my Sunday was a bit of a struggle this week.

However, my hard work (I say hard work, I just sit there and shout lines at people if they get them wrong) was rewarded by the most BEAUTIFUL sunset on the way home from Henlow. The sun, a burnt orange, sat in the middle of a blue, pink, and purple sky. 

I am a little gutted that I couldn't snap a picture (the above photo was taken a few days before) but at the same time, it's quite nice that I can keep the image all to myself (and the rest of those on the motorway). 

R&B Party Starters

The above is the name of a station on Google Play Music and I am LOVING it. It features TLC, Ne-Yo, and my favourite jam on the playlist 'Give It to Me' by Nelly Furtado, Timbaland, and MR JT.

A Peek Inside Our Scrapbook

My first scrapbook was a large A3 book, with pages of multicoloured craft paper inside. I used it to document a Pontins trip that both of my Nans had taken me and my brother on. 

I tore pages from my journal and stuck them next to 6×4's that I had waited to be developed. I still have it and I pull it out of my crowded closet every now and then, just to take a look and remind myself of how times have changed. 

Memories are now recorded digitally. Instead of printing photos, you Instagram them. Instead of writing a journal, you tweet or write a blog post. 

scrapbooking for adults

When I got with G, I knew I wanted something to record our special moments. Something concrete, that couldn't accidentally be deleted. 

I bought a small scrapbook from Hobbycraft and gave it to him on our first Valentine's day. I filled it with song lyrics, letters and the odd receipt from date nights. 

Then, we got the travel bug and our memory scrapbook reached a whole new level!

Date night receipts turned in to boarding passes, love notes in to attraction tickets and song lyrics became souvenir coins. Gareth also started taking over the scrapbooking and I have to admit, he is much better at it than I am!
