A Weekly Feature (hopefully)!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mummies out there!
It's my first one - I've had a great day and hope you have too!

I'm hoping to start a regular weekly feature of a quick Sunday post of a...
Photo of the Week!

This weekend has been lovely - the weather has been kind, with gorgeous spring mornings, although it has greyed over in the afternoons.  We have mostly spent the days visiting. 
Saturday morning Hubby was out so we went to my Mum's house and Miss Hannah had a great time playing in the garden.  We started out laying a sheet down for her, but after a bit of complaining about the damp grass, she soon set about exploring.  She loves the swing seat and trying to pick Nannie's flowers - but is still not too impressed with the tortoises...  she likes to pat the "rocks", until they move!
Then today we had a lay-in until 7.30am as she slept late (bliss!) and then played in her cot happily for ages. We went out for a (cheating) breakfast at McD's then collected my Mum-in-law and headed over to visit Miss Hannah's Great-Nan and Great-Grandad (Hubby has lots of generations compared to my family - I do wonder if Hannah is going to think every family member is either a "Nan-nan" or a "Grrrdad") 
Their garden is an even bigger adventure than Nannie's - they also have lots of grass, and a swing seat too, but they have a pond full of fish... and they have chickens...! So for my first Picture of the Week - a shot of Miss Hannah dragging her Daddy up and down the garden chasing after the chickens!

I will be trying to choose my favourite photo taken every week - I think this may be quite difficult some weeks, as I have been known to take a *lot* of pictures - especially of Miss H.  I will however be trying to mix it up a bit and select photos of any key events of the week, or any photos that I hope to scrap when I have the time and hopefully these posts and any accompanying notes will serve as reminders when I do get the time.
I am still reading and making notes for Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers course, and intend to cover them all in time (probably by the end of BFS part two knowing me!!) but reading her suggestion about a regular feature made me think of this as it has been going round in my mind for a while in my "wouldn't it be nice to have/do/try" after seeing it appear on Rachel's blog (and I'm delighted to see it has re-appeared there this week too!)

Night all, thanks for stopping by!
