April's Calendar pages!

Hellooo lovelies!!!  Its 1st April already!!!  Its April Fools Day here in the U.K....does that happen anywhere else or is it just us who have a loony day??? hahaha!!! Anyway I am being a good girl & filling in my pages this year :-D  Here is April's all ready...


Yellow & purple seem to be all around us at this time of the year don't they?  The combination is very Springlike.  Now, I have a thing for chickens and could sit & watch them all day as they are soooo funny!  So as its the Easter month they have been included.  No Easter eggs as I don't buy them, I just don't like the commercial side of this season.  Btw...the chickens came out of a kiddies colouring book hahaha!  Always a good source for farm animals I reckon.  Anyway...here are March's pages, all filled in...


March has really been a month of change in my family.  My daughter found herself a far better job where she is happy and of course my sister and her little family moved close by, which I love!!!  There has been lots of furniture hunting and packing of boxes & a fair few sofa days involved too.  My Mum has spent most of the month in quarantine after thyroid treatment & was in a bad mood for most of it!!!  Oh & I fitted in a birthday :-D So its all been busy busy busy.....phew....looking forward to a quieter month now!!!

If you would like to see other calendar pages for the 365 JOURNAL then pop over to ~The Kathryn Wheel~ and see what Kate & the others have done!  Thank you for taking a look today, HUGS XXX

Sounds like a very busy month. I didn't even know it was your birthday, either. Happy belated. I also hope April is a quieter month for you. Sounds like you need to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. I love those chicks, though. They look full of energy.

Well done you for getting your April calendar started, a few of us seem a bit behind on that. What a good idea to use a children's colouring book for the animals too, liking that idea. I'm not keen on too much commercialisation but I have to admit I do love chocolate! x

Laura said...

Hello there! What a cheerful April page you have created. And the chickens from the coloring book- so clever.
