Where is the time going?

Three weeks into the holiday period already, even more scary is the fact that we are nearly half way through August.  It has been a busy three weeks, though enjoyable.  Friends from Herts came down the first weekend, great to catch up with them.  Then last week my nephew from London came to visit, this was lovely as we haven't really seen or spoken for nearly fifteen years (families eh?)  so it was good to catch up on what has gone on in his life and how well he has done for himself due to his own efforts and determination.  It was also good for him and the girls to spend some time together getting to know each other. 
Whilst here we did the boat trip from Truro to Falmouth, haven't done that for years.  It was lovely and relaxing.  I don't normally show photos of myself - mainly because I always pull silly faces - very childish I know.  Anyway Bernadette took this one of me and my girls, or should I say my gnomes!! and I rather like it.

The other exciting thing that has happened this last week was my receiving a phone call from the owner of one of the holiday parks in Newquay asking if I would be interested in taking photos for their 2011 brochure!!!!!  Would I??  yes please, the only downer being he wanted them by the end of August, we go away on Friday for two weeks, not so good.  After a chat he agreed to extend the deadline to the end of Sept, so I have been going back and forth getting photos that will be suitable for what he wants, trouble is the weather hasn't been on my side for this assignment, a holiday park with black clouds doesn't look very inviting to say the least. Still I have to say the people I have met whilst doing it have been lovely which has made it so much easier for me.  What next !!

I wanted to put something on here today because yesterday and today are two very important but sad anniversaries in my life.  On the 10th August 2005 Mick's aunty - known in Penzance as Sister Joseph passed away and on the 11th August 2006 my mum passed away.  Both ladies were very very special to me and I miss them both dearly - Never Gone, Never Far, In my heart is where you are xx
