Sunflowers & Not Sleeping

So, here are a couple more Learn Something New Everyday layouts. 22nd and 23rd September.

The 22nd was the first day I had left the house properly since Daniel had been born. After several sleepless nights and hormonal crying, it was so lovely to see the sunflowers we had planted all tall and smiling in the afternoon sun. I can't wait to grow more next year.

The 23rd was a day that followed a night of little sleep. I went back to bed mid-morning but couldn't get to sleep. So instead of getting upset and in a tizz with myself I got my book out (nothing too highbrow - chicklit) and just rested and read for a couple of hours. Although I had not been to sleep I still felt so much better.

I don't really like this layout though. I think I may need to re-visit once I've finished.

So, I'm nearly there. I'm off to print the last batch of pictures now.


  1. I love your sunflowers, Rachel. Amazing they grew so well and mine were, well, just rubbish! I will gladly give you some more seeds next year!
    I like the colours and the layout for the rest/sleep one! the red and black is a good bold stripe.

  2. Wow - that sunflower is amazing. So lovely!

  3. Sunflowers make me smile too, especially me friend Pat's - it grew to be taller than her conservatory but the actual flower head was really tiny! :-) x

  4. Hi Rachel ~ Thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog. Your blog is adorable -- LOVE the background design! You know, I would love to send you some M&M Premiums as a little "happy mail package" from the US. If you email me your address and I'd be happy to send some your way!
