Lockdown Stories

Hi Everyone, after my last scrapbook page it put me in the mood to make another one and, as I was sent photographs of my Niece with her grandchildren, I felt they needed a scrapbook page to record them. Hence this page.

I loved Dorothy sitting down to listen, live, to her Grandmother reading her stories, she is so intense and very interested in them too. I had to include the lovely photo of the 3 of them, this time Owen joined them, they are enjoying their stories before lockdown. I did the journaling as if my Niece wrote it. When I was searching for papers etc in my files I came across a digital kit I haven't used, (so many of them). I loved the fresh colours and then noticed the kit's name! - Perfect! I then went on to make my own scrap page design, OH! This lockdown is doing funny things to me LOL.

I have another poem from Gill Reed my SiL's Sister for you. She is so clever with words.

Keeping a Lert, by Gill Reed
A Lert is the most adorable creature,
Its home-loving nature
Is a notable feature.
Its eyes should always be shiny and bright
For it is famous
For measuring two metres by sight.
It is trained in the art of hand sanitation,
And knows how to prevent
The hugging temptation.
A Lert with its knowledge can always be trusted
But updates must always
Be daily adjusted.
With a Lert as your guide, you’ll covidly know
You R-valued for freedom
To get up and go.
Getting a Lert can be a wonderful thing
But remember it’s for life
Don’t get a Lert on a whim.
Soon you and a Lert will find a new way
Together you’ll conquer
And you’ll want it to stay,
A Lert.

Your layout is absolutely precious Faith. The worst thing about this virus is the horrible separating of loved ones. Loving the Lert poem! Vicky x
