Holy mackerel where does the time go?

I have to admit that I am not sure if this blog thing is going to continue. I don’t feel the urge to keep going right now, mostly because I don’t seem to have anything to write about that may even be remotely interesting for you all to read. Writing a blog of my life and the stuff in it needs to be interesting and quite frankly it isn’t.

Whilst I contemplate the whole blog thing I may as well provide an update on the Worldwich of Sam.

Flipping heck what has happened since February…… Well the summer holidays are upon us. for once the weather seems to be holding up. I am off for the next 2 weeks but there are no plans cos hubby has changed his job and is now a taxi driver. He loves this …. a lot. Maybe my blog can be full of the stories he comes home with… and maybe not! Because of this recent change in work there has been a slight impact on the finances and going away anywhere is off the cards. Thats 2 years on the trot as it happened last year when I changed my job and cocked up the holiday plans. Anyway we are staying at home. Yesterday was a trip to Wingham Wildlife park near Canterbury. Pleasantly surprised actually. Better than Howletts Zoo to be honest and many many more of the animals were actually visible. I guess that the anti caged animals lobby may argue that this is not a good thing and quite frankly I have no desire to get into the semantics of this but we had a good few hours watching the lemurs climb over people and the meerkats standing up on their hind legs and the otters who are quite simply so fricking gorgeous.

I have bought Savannah a sewing machine and am introducing her to the world of sewing but again I am struggling with mojo and don’t know what to sew. we are trying to learn the basics like threading up the machine and winding the bobbin on etc so its early days but she has made a fully lined tote bag with my support and seemed to enjoy it a lot.

Other plans include a maybe trip to London (finances pending), Broadstairs water gala next Wednesday oh and Pokemon hunting. I am not going to apologise for being one of “the masses” playing this game as I am thoroughly enjoying it. I get out of the house gets my steps up for my Fitbit and generally stay fit. I am not running at the moment due to potential arthritis in my big toe and I don’t really know how this is going to pan out but walking is good.

Anyway going to leave you with some pictures of bags and animals until next time TTFN xx

Sewing again. 

I have been shockingly shabby at the weekly photo challenge I set myself. Bad beyond belief but I have managed to do some sewing today  

   Savannah is still sucking her thumb and my niece is also a thumb sucker so I have made some new “thumbsies” for them both. 

So one on hand feeling a bit pleased with myself but I will get the photo thing done I promise.

New blog title. Same address 

So I have been playing with blog names (something I blogged about ages ago). I finally got one I like and here it is. The Worldwich of Sam. Worldwich is obviously made up but I like that is sounds like a world sandwich which is a little like what my blog is about. Me being the bread and the various bits of my life like my family and my sewing and my photography being the different filings. What do you think?

So rubbish already…sorry :(

I knew I would struggle but I did’t imagine it would be by week 3. I have really had problems working out a photo for “Home” and then it just spiralled from there. To be fair (or rather to try to excuse my tardiness) I have had a little issue with my shoulder and a considerable amount of pain that last weekend really came to a head and I made friends with Diazepam to help me to sleep. I was not functioning that well last weekend because of this. Anyway I hope to be able to have a bit of a photo fest in a couple of weeks when I have a week off the day job and hope to redeem myself (even if just a little).

I hope you are all ok and see you soon

Week 2: Favourite

Tony, Savannah and me (is that correct!!!) went to Hythe today to take some pictures. It has been a beautiful day with lots of lovely sunshine. A little chilly but gorgeous. This weeks theme for my photography  is “Favourite” and I have decided to visit somewhere that I love and means a lot to me. My grandparents lived in Hythe and I spent many summers and Christmas’s there as well as day visits with my parents. We would walk along the promenade and the canal and I have many many fond memories of these walks with my Grandad, Dad, Uncle Keith and others whilst my mum and nan stayed at home and chatted.

So here are some pictures of my ‘Favourite’ place. _DSC0126.jpg_DSC0140.jpg_DSC0146.jpg_DSC0088.jpg_DSC0111.jpg_DSC0113.jpg

Behind already :(

So week 1 of my photography challenge is already done and no picture!!! My bad…it has been a pretty rough weekend and I have simply not had time to spend getting a decent photo. I do however have plans to try to get it this week so hopefully I will be posting a picture or 2 soon. I am now also thinking about my topic for this week which is “favourite”

Now what could that lead me to take photos of?????
