Today's weather report from Hertfordshire is that it's lovely and sunny - but there's a nip in the air - the milk bottles felt fridge=cold when I picked them off the step this morning! Pancake day today, so need to get that batter mix ready for later, and the lemon juice, sugar and maple syrup.
Will you be having pancakes today?
As it's one of Hubby's "Work from home" days, we can have something a little more nutritious for lunch!
It may be coming up to 2 years in March since we spent a fab week in Paris, but the keepsake mini album I started making just after we got home is still plodding on! I am not a quick worker. Actually, its quite an achievement to be still adding to it - usually I get bored after a few pages of an album and it just gathers dust on the shelf with all the others I've started and never finished.
And Yes, I know that that is a really bad character trait. to admit to
I have made another LO for the book, it's a double page LO based on our visit to the Musée d'Orsay, which we loved. It used to be a railway station and I love the way the splendour of Victorian Industrial architecture makes such a fantastic backdrop for the art on display.
I used the February Sketch File LO to create the right hand page, swapping the circle on the sketch for a rectangle, which is a flap, so room for 1 picture on either side.
I used a B + W photo from the gallery's website to show how the space used to look (well obviously we couldn't take a photo of our own showing that, could we?).

It's a pretty simple LO, but I really wanted to keep it that way and let the photo of the clock be the star. The top floor of the gallery lets you walk right behind the clock face and the view over the Seine is fabulous - especially when the sky is as blue as it was on our visit. Oh my, I was so pleased with this photo!
We didn't bother with the Louvre on this visit - we went there last time, but its so big and overwhelming that its a bit too much really. The Musée d'Orsay is fantastic, and so is the Orangerie - which has the most spectacular Monet exhibit - I believe designed by Monet himself, and truly breathtaking.
Enough of the waffling! I shall shut up now
Thank you so much for visiting today, I hope you'll take a minute to leave a message, I'd love to hear what you think....about the LO....about the galleries if you've been....about pancakes.... 😁😁😁
See you again soon
