Once again Effy is doing a month-long Blog Challenge on Facebook.
I mentioned yesterday the above page inspired by Niamh Baly. I have done quite a few of Niamh's workshops. Mostly one or two page ones but the rainbow one that starts a little way in, in the little video, was 8 pages. I was pretty pleased with it apart from my writing!
Someone mentioned that the Irish spelling of Niamh's name is quite odd. To pronounce it, it is 'Neeve' - which got me thinking about name pronunciations. I have a few Welsh and Irish friends Sian ('Sharn'), Ioan ('Yo-ann'), Owen ('Oo wan'), Siobhan ('She-vorn')... Then I know two English people called Leonie - one is 'Lee-owe-ni' - the other thing is 'Lee-un-i'.
I am sure many kids read Hermione quite incorrectly - I remember reading Penelope as 'Penny-lope' as a child and Anemone as 'Anny-moan'. My Dad always called asparagus Aspa-rar-gus and Egypt as Egg-white as jokes. I think the Eggwhite one may have come from his Navy days.
English is a funny language!
Today's journal page is this - in my little kraft journal. This was inspired by Mel at Scrapbookingncraft
Kevin continues with his boat renovations - it is really good for him to have lockdown projects - but midnight tomorrow our restrictions are easing slightly!
Gradually more people are getting vaccinated...
Today's Facebook memory - three years ago we were visiting the Melbourne Festival in Derbyshire, UK. So many lovely pieces of art to see...
