started at Just Scrapbooking on 10th Jan.. my scrap room is a tip
(nothing new there!) and I couldn't tidy it til the album was done.. now there's no excuse, but the room is still untidy!
It was a lovely project and I used most of the pics from December's shopping trips and the ones I took over Christmas, when Will & Michele came over from the States..he arrived at 5pm dressed as Santa, such a star!.. and a real photo opportunity!
The weather was really chilly, but fantastically cold so we had some great winter walks beside the Mount and the pictures show the chill! Needless to say we all enjoyed the Tropical Biome at the Eden project after skating...but not me, I'm just happy to be the minder and coat holder..
I think the weather was good training for Will, who last week endured the freezing temperatures in Washington to celebrate President Obama's inauguration.. good luck to all our American friends and family (see our family blog to hail the visit from Col's Uncle Bill and his family in the early summer)

.. but more of the scrapbooking later..
So about the Blog-itis...? Well, Col's Uncle Bill who has lived and raised his family in the States this past 40 years, is planning a trip with his 3 children, to the UK to discover and celebrate their roots..(oh, and his 70th birthday!)....to this end we have created a blog http://smiths-cornwall.blogspot.com/ so we can swap ideas / dates/ loves & hates and get to know each other before we get together in the summer...I am excited already, any excuse to show them all my favourite places and follow it up with barbecued fish and a cream tea or two!
So Kate and Jordan have come along on the blog-mobile and I think Ross is wavering towrds compliance too.. to please his mommy! Only Zac and Lisa to go now,, and I know she reads this one, so pretty please???

.. made me think of other days in the past few months where the warmth of the Cornish sun has brought thoughts and warm memories of Mum.. and I smiled...x
