Blogtober Day 17 - Memorandum Monday

It is still Monday so time to link up with Sian over at From High in the Sky to share about the weekend.

It was a bitty weekend, apart from one plan we had nothing much organised so we did a bit of this and a bit of that - the weather was bitty too, one minute lashing down with rain, the next it was blue skies and sunshine - it couldn't make up it's mind what to do!!

The highlight of the weekend was going with my Mum to the cinema to see the 25th anniversary show of Miss Saigon - it was one of those one off live theatre screenings and our first time of seeing one.  I was very impressed, it did have the feel of being at the theatre, we were even given a programme on the door instead of the usual 'ugg' that you get from the teen doing the door.  There was an interval and everyone clapped and cheered at the end, just as if we were at the theatre.  The camera work was stunning, you would never see it that close up even if you were in the front row.  I saw Miss Saigon 24 years ago when it was just over a year into its West End run - it reduced me to a blubbering mess then and it still does!!

Today we went over to Rye to visit an uncle who is in respite care at the cottage hospital there.  As hospital visits go it was really good.  Uncle was very chirpy and chatty and before we knew it, four hours had flown by.  Hopefully he will be able to get home soon.  A quick pub stop for a meal on the way home and that was basically the day gone.

It was also a weekend of no photographs, so rather than leave this blog post photoless I will share a baby card that I made last week.

The bear stamp is a new one from Stampin' Up and is a three step stamp - I used Mint Macaron (stamped off once), Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  The background was embossed with a SU embossing folder and the sentiment is from the bear stamp set.

Don't forget to go and give a wave to Sian if you have shared about your weekend.  And if you want to see what the other Blogtober peeps are up to, then check out Sy's blog
