David was already busy preparing dinner when we got in. Rebecca and I were only stopping off for a short while, as we were off to see 'Fame'. I must say, not a great movie. I personally prefer the old version. We were finally home again at 8.45 p.m. Just in time to watch this evening's results of Strictly Come Dancing. Rebecca was pretty beat after all the excitement today and decided not even to read before going to sleep.
Today is also David's eldest brother's birthday. Of course I made Paul a card. I'm a strong believer that when something works you shouldn't be afraid to use it again. I've done something like this before, and I liked it, so here's the encore:

A few weeks ago we spent the day at my brother-in-law's house, where most of the Gibbons' cousins were together. I took the opportunity to take some pictures as the weather conditions were excellent for it. I used my 50mm lens for all the shots. Besides the card I made for Paul, I also created a little mini album of all four of his daughters. It was a surprise, but I had my sister-in-law as an accomplice to provide me with a short list to describe each of his girls and their relationships to add to the album. Besides 5 of their characteristics he also thought they were all very beautiful. That's what became the title:
On the next pages are Louise's children. Even though they are not Paul's daugthers (!) I felt they needed to be included. And who wouldn't they are gorgeous:

It's almost 11 p.m.... time for me to rest my head as well. Tomorrow's another sunny day. Enjoy!
