Trekkie through and through...

I've always been a Sci-Fi fan - Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5 etc etc even before I met Lee, so when the opportunity arose a good few years back to go to Collectamania in Milton Keynes and meet Brent Spiner - that's Data from Star Trek to those not in the know, my favourite character from Star Trek, I jumped at the chance!

Lee was up for it too as Michael Dorn (Klingon Worf) has always been his favourite... and he also got to meet Walter Keonig who played Chekov!
I'm entereing this layout into a SciFi challenge over at Weird Scissors...

We are Sailing.....

Yesterday "Up Sail" Yacht club had a free open day whereby anyone could go along and try out sailing... Was up for that!
 Nicholas was taking part in his second gala for SOS so he declined to come along, but I took Alexander and Cassandra and we were first on the River Crouch..

Cassandra and I went together in a boat called "Starship" which was fun... until the wind got up and the little lady decided that it wasn't so much fun anymore...

 Alexander on the other hand really enjoyed himself.. from helping to launch the boat
 Sailing it..
 And even geting soaked - he loved it!
May just have to see if there are any other yacht clubs offering an open day..

You can do it!

I've had a very stressed out and emotional young man the last few weeks, due to Alexander working hard in readiness for sitting his Year 6 SAT's exams this week.

He's really up'd his game that Lee and I couldn't of asked any more of him.  I just hope that he does his best as we're so proud of him - whatever results he gets.

Son...

Am pleased that I'm getting to scrap a bit more lately and I love this photo of Nicholas so it was perfect for the sketch challenge over at "Lets Capture our memories".
Plenty of time still to enter as closing date is end of the month.

My Scraps & More...

At Christmas my Mum bought the 3 sprogs a "shoulder buddy" -  a cute little bug that was magnetic with another magnetic disc that went under their clothes so it sat on their shoulder.  They were a HUGE hit and they still haven't lost them!
The sketch challenge over at My Scraps and More was good, but I rotated it 90 degrees!

Plenty of time to enter as closing date is not until 31st May 2015.

Sassy Scrappers mood board challenge as I used the Walt Disney quote as my inspiration.
