September - what a month!

This has really been such a busy, full month!  I also had the wonderful surprise of my mum coming to visit!  Can not believe Matt and Mum kept this one a secret!

Mum and I tried to make the most of our short time together and first on our list had to be a crafty affair!
So off to the lovely Jackie Da Silva we went for an afternoon of card making with a stamp from the new Stampin' Up! Catalogue. Jackie runs classes in Card Making and Scrapbooking and you can be sure you will love what you make!
We visited the historic market town of St Albans and then hopped on a boat for a cruise into the Chilterns down the Grand Union Canal.

A trip to London is always on the cards.  Mum and I went strolling along the river path and South Bank admiring the bridges over the River Thames in the City.  Who knew that Waterloo Bridge was re-built mostly by woman during the war years?

Portobello Market  was our next stop.  After living in the UK for nearly 10 years this was my first visit, but I would definitely want to go back for a shopping spree soon!
In between all this I had to go for my final step in receiving my British Passport...The Interview.  Good news though I received it two days later!  Super quick! I baked cakes and we  probably drank way too much coffee!

I have been looking forward to the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace for months and so lovely that mum got to go with me. 
Very sad that all good things must come to an end, but what a great end to mum's visit.
Love you Moekie!

Thank you for dropping by today.
