I always have the case of laziness after a vacation. When I was working I thought that it’s just cause I had to go back to work but now that I stay at home I am coming to a conclusion that I’m just pure lazy. It’s just me not wanting to go back to the work routine. On top of that, I’ve been sleepy even though I’ve been going to bed earlier than usual. The projects that I’ve been posting for the last two weeks I’ve done before I left on vacation. Lazy I tell you!!
I do want to share more pictures from our trip. This time it’s from Glastonbury Abbey. This place has 2000 years worth of history/story and due to the mid-1530s social and religious upheaval known as the Dissolution of the Monasteries the most of the abbey was destroyed. According to legend little Jesus was here and King Arthur and wife were buried here too.
Stories has it that Jesus and his uncle came and visited this area when Jesus was just a boy. His uncle then came back and built a church right where the below church was built. Back in the days the inside of this (gigantic) church was very well decorated but most of the expensive pieces have been looted or sold.
A view from a distance. These three pieces used to be one big church. I can’t remember the square footage but it was big. It became the riches abbey due to the pilgrimage activities. The second biggest is the abbey (also in ruins) near us, in Bury St. Edmunds.
The kitchen was the only building that didn’t get ruined and we got the opportunity to listen to a little history besides watching M and a few other girls make magic bread. It was magic because the dough magically turned into a full loaf of bread after putting the dough into the fire pit. The monks at the abbey didn’t eat lavishly. They had a very thin diet. This kitchen was mainly used to cook meals for the visitors.
If you’re in the Somerset area, Glastonbury Abbey is a neat place to visit. There are other things to see and do too which I’ll share later.
This scrapbook page is pretty simple. I used the October Scarlet Lime kit for this page.
The page has a few little pieces here and there from some Prima and Pink Paislee goodies. I love them a lot and I want to spread them out a bit, ha!
Well, have a great one. As I write this my eyes are really heavy and I had a good night sleep!! Laters!
