Below is the two page spread: (This week I have continued to use my standard page protector layouts - one with (2) 3x4 slots and (1) 4x6 and the other page with (4) 3x4 slots.

As I have been liking the large number cards in relation to what week it is, I thought I would continue to go with this theme. I created this card in Word and then used a text box to put the dates inside the number two.
Rather then keep the weekly journal cards the same "This week..." I have been trying to change them up just a little bit. This 3x4 journal card was created in Word and then I added a text box top and bottom with the title "Weekly Highlights". Again, not a super busy week for me as I'm leading the life of leisure, if only! Although in saying that I did start a temporary job this week and ashamedly I must admit, I only worked the one day. I know, makes me sound like a complete and total flake, but I promise you I am not. In the interview, they grossly misrepresented this job in its entirety, presenting it as quite a senior role. Turned out this was not the case and with the way that I was treated on the first day, I thought, there is no way I can do this, especially when I don't necessarily have to at this point. We can manage for a while if I tighten the purse strings.
For a while it was a regular thing that Sunday mornings were "American breakfast" mornings. I would get out the recipe book and whip up a batch of pancakes along with some sausage or bacon, and maybe some hash brown potatoes as well. As we haven't done this for a while, I thought it would be nice to go back to an old tradition. I added the text on this 4x6 photo in Word.
I know Simon doesn't always like me taking pictures of him, especially when he is sleeping. Yes, this is something I am guilty of. But this time I just couldn't resist as it was too cute, the two of them laying next to one another completely oblivious to the world around. I usually try to turn the flash off and the sound on my phone, otherwise I get him waking up complaining about me taking pictures of him unaware. In all fairness, I suppose I probably wouldn't like it either. But you have to admit, this is an adorable picture.
I created the following 3x4 insert in Word along with downloading a Pinterest logo off the internet. In looking around on the internet this week (and yes, if you're wondering I do spend an exorbitant amount of time on Pinterest) I accidentally stumbled across the job board at Pinterest while actually looking for a topic on the Help board. I was surprised to see that there was a job listed for UK Community Manager. I thought, what do I have to lose if I don't apply. Yes, it would be a dream job and my life would be complete but I know that it is highly unlikely that I will get it as I don't believe I have the "online presence" they are looking for. However, in all fairness, with all the time that I spend on Pinterest, I SHOULD have a job there. Now I know everyone makes that claim, spending too much time on Pinterest, but I am not kidding. I literally eat, breathe and sleep Pinterest. I suppose that's kind of bad really and also kinda sad.
I created the insert card below in Word. I wanted something that would represent the way I felt about the picture next to it in the layout (of Simon and Rupert) in a simple way without words and I felt this did it!
The pic below is 3x4 and taken on a Friday evening walk in Cookham. As Simon has only been working about 10 minutes from there I have been, on occasion, driving over to meet him just as he finishes work and then we all go for an evening walk in Cookham. It really is a nice way to end the week. Plus Rupert loves it so much more when Simon is there. They truly are a boy and his dog! I added the white text in Word.
