April Family 12 x 12 blog hop

I'm late................
so sorry everyone I have been in London for the day and forgot to write my post in advance I apologise!

Anyway, the fantastic Margie is the founder of our monthly family blog hop, which is a really fantastic way to record your own family photos....... if you remember to take them!!  I have looked through all my March pictures and there are not as many as usual, I have lots of scrapbook layouts, my mother's day presents and my daughters new trainers but very few people pics and definitely no family photos (I took several of DD's English/French exchange group but they don't count as family!)

So I have cheated!  I bring you hot of the press this photograph taken on Sunday

This is a celebration for my Mother in Law's 80th birthday, which 17 of us joined her for in Dorset and what a fun weekend it was. Yes I got everyone to pose snapped away then asked a complete stranger to take one that included me!!

I expect you have already visited all the other participants blogs (sorry again for my tardy entry!) but here is the list just in case


just wanted to say a special welcome to Louise as this is her first time joining in and I hope she continues to do so.  If you are interested in joining us please get in touch with Margie, it really is simple and fun to do xxx
