52 stories – week thirty three and thirty four


Hello and welcome to two more stories in this year of story telling adventures.

Night Light


Here is the story from this page –

Griffith Park  Los Angeles   28 April 2015

Our evening was all planned out. We’d had a busy day driving to downtown LA to see Endeavour and then Angels Flight. In all that heat. We rested in the hotel a while and were heading out to star spot, the universe kind. Then I got a little grumble in the tum and really didn’t want to venture anywhere. But I did and we stopped in Pasadena to get pizza for Gav, drove along the fast and furious freeways and got there just as it was getting dark. It was really busy but we still managed to look through two telescopes they’d set up outside and saw a demo of the TESLA machine. And saw the twinkling lights of tinsel town below. 

The takeaways from this page/would I add anything more?

I apologise for sharing gastric troubles! A step too far I think but this is such a lovely story (not the troubles but the other parts) from our trip last year that I wanted to share the overall story of that evening. It was really a lovely adventure even if it started of on shaky ground!

Wouldn’t add anything to this one.

And because I’m behind with sharing these here is another one to bring us up to date with week thirty four.

The fun you have with 2 pence



Here’s the story from this page –

If we go to the seaside then we go to the amusement arcade. I remember playing one time when I was H’s age in Scarborough with Nana and Grandad Bill. She like the amusement arcade did my Nana! And look at that adorable smile all because she won back a few 2 pence pieces. Of course it’s just the fun of it all that we love the attempted skill and then that great sound of the coins dropping to indicate that we won. Love this tradition, love that girl.

The takeaways from this page/would I add anything more?

The date! Good grief how can I forget to add the date! I also don’t think that the story flows as well as it could especially the fact that I’ve mixed a memory of mine in and then back to the story of the photo all in two sentences. But I do like that it tells a little story of these visits to coastal arcades.

I’ll just go now and add the date!


52 stories is a year long series or adventure in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.

    Your story telling & layouts certainly make for some fun reading. Your star gazing in Pasadena reminds me of the tv show The Big Bang Theory, they live in the same part of the world. You & Gav were very brave for venturing to LA – that is a place I have avoided on trips to California – tooooooo much traffic.

      That’s funny Mary-Lou I think we singled out Pasadena because we love Big Bang! I know the traffic is crazy there and Gav hated it the first time we went but he did so well doing the driving.
