Has anyone else been
glued to the TV these last couple of days watching the 2012 Masters Golf
competition in Atlanta, Georgia? My darling husband has wasted valuable
gardening time watching grown men attack a defenceless little white ball with a
big stick. When he gets home, on goes the TV, feet go up onto the sofa and I
know that I am going to have to listen to them droning on about eagles, birdies
and bogeys for hours. Whilst I am bustling around the kitchen (or surfing
around Pinterest!) I can hear the commentary and, because we are really lucky
and have MySky, I can hear the same commentary two or three times. When he
wakes up and realises that he’s slept through the last half an hour, he has a
quick rewind and off we go again.
DH has informed me
that tomorrow is National Golfers Day. I don’t know whether he expected me to
put out bunting or bake a cake or something. I pointed out that every blinkin
day is Golfers Day in our house.
To compound my vexation,
he has decided that my eldest granddaughter should start golf lessons. Her
daddy already plays golf (when he has time) and the other two girls will also
be getting lessons eventually. He probably thinks I don't know what he’s up to - oh yes he has a long-term goal. I am just waiting for
that joyous occasion when he suggests “Family Golfing Holidays”. I think I
would rather eat my own eyeballs.
Anyway, here’s a
layout I’ve done to record her first golf lessons (just in case she becomes a
famous female golfer in the future). I’ve used the fabulous Authentique papers and kept it pretty simple. The rest of the DT have informed you of the
wonderful quality and texture of this product so I won’t go on about that.
Suffice to say that this manufacturer deserves a medal for making me actually
enjoy scrapbooking a photo of the next generation possibly beginning a lifetime’s
infatuation with that ridiculous little ball.
