These are the last pages in my first art journal, and as I managed to complete a whole journal without actually journaling anything I decided to write some words of my own on these pages. Next time I’ll show you the cover which I left till last.
Hopefully my journaling on this spread will explain what it has meant to me to complete my journal.
Well I’ve just about finished sorting out my work room. It still looks really cluttered and that’s because there is simply too much stuff in it, but at least there is now a semblance of order. As I said before it probably won’t last long because I am naturally an untidy person, but it’s done me good to have a clear out. The piles of ‘Things to Do’ will soon start to accumulate again. I gave up with trying to shred the stack of old personal papers as my shredder kept jamming up every few minutes, so I went outside and burnt them in our ‘burning bin’. My two cats were fascinated, I don’t think they have ever seen flames before, fortunately they had the sense to watch from a distance.
Today I am going to Osborne House with my local history group. It’s our winter outing. Osborne House is where Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their large family came to live on the Isle of Wight. It’s a huge house in magnificent grounds and today it will be decorated for Christmas. Because we are a history group we are having an educational trip (i.e. the admission fee is waived) and we will be having a guided tour and talk. We will be giving a donation to English Heritage who are allowing us to visit today. Afterwards we are all going back to a friend’s house for mince pies and tea. It should be a good day.
Hope everyone is well and happy
See you soon
