Had a wonderful day yesterday, got a beautiful double LO done, thanks to Laineys wonderful class, and some much needed retail therapy done, supplied by Annamarie from Scrapbook Store and Linda's shop! We then hit (Lollie, Dewdrop, Sandie and myself) Blancharstown shopping centre for more retail therapy!!! (insert eye roll) Thanks Debs for the yummy M&S cookies for the car on the way home, they were just what the doc ordered, absolutely gorgeous, nearly ripped lollies one from her!

Haven't inserted any pics on my LO yet, so I am going to work on that today, and will post a pic up later. Also going to attempt the Midland Craft Club weekly watch this space. Going to need a geansai load of coffee first though! LOL

Lost little "Socks"

Yesterday evening my poor baby "socks" was killed on the road. There seems to be a pattern the last few weeks, first george, and now socks. We are all devasted as with all our pets they are part of our family. Can't believe he is gone, he had such a lovely nature.

A princess

Todays make, these papers are to die for (aren't they all) They are so gorgeous the pics don't do them any justice! This LO didn't need much as the paper is so beautiful!

Friday, 14 September 2007

Halloween has come early

This is todays make! These papers are to die for I bought them a few weeks ago and they were so yummy I didn't want to use them, coming at them with me scissors was a mortal sin I reckoned! So I went and got another set that I can keep ( I know I know I admit to being a paperaddict!) So this is what happened when I got the scissors and scrappyglue out.

Rugby widow - part 2

Phew! I have one contained in room with his star wars toys and other is down having a nap - exhale! My blackmail notion backfired on me big time, they where bouncing off the walls, maybe I shouldn't have bought those sweets!

In a desparate attempt to bring a touch of France to my day, seeing as OH is rambling around Bordeaux, I bought a lovely bottle of chardonnay (and yes I restrained myself to only buying one), that is as we speak cooling nicely in my fridge and waiting in anticipation for the kids bed time to roll it 8 o'clock yet??????
Where at 8pm I will be running at the fridge like a woman possessed with wine opener in tow. So in the mean time I am going to finish off those craft projects I have left scattered all around the place half done! A Bientot!

Rugby Widow

God it has been a week since I last blogged, shame! I have become a rugby widow offically as of 8 o'clock this morning...............he has left me so he can travel to france to see the match, he does deserve it I have to say. Woohoo!!! No only messing, I will miss him and the upside is I can now craft to my hearts content. Not that I am not able to when he is here, it just makes me feel less quilty now that he is gone for a little bit, I can now visit my craft desk without feeling like I have abandoned him alone on front of the telly.

The down side is I have been left alone to control my 2 children & entertain them, am I capable of that??????
I feel some blackmail coming on! Will report back and let you now if I am still of sound mind and body later................but I do doubt it.

Woke up yesterday morning to find a little delivery of kittens in my en-suite!! Ahhhhh!! Jess (mammy cat) set herself up in the basket with not a wimper or peep out of her. We kind of knew she was expecting but only in the last week or so. It was like Santy was after coming, but as much as I love my cats, I can't be the owner of 9 of them now! So, I will have to part with some of them when the time comes, god it is gonna break my heart, will try not to get too attached.

And, yes one of them looks like little "george" so he will be staying!

Altamont Gardens

After a week of not wanting to leave the house, goosey and myself headed off on a spur of the moment visit to Altamont Gardens. Wow, I have never been there this time of the year, the colours the smells....................! Instand smiles from Sophie and a skip in her step.
We walked around though rose gardens, by the lake, across the lawns and through spooky walkways, sophie thought it was Halloween! This spured her mind to what she was going to dress up at Halloween for.........................."Peter Pan, I think I will be Peter Pan" and that was that, for today anyway!
We came across the ducks, brown, coloured and white!! Sophie thought the white ones where swans, bless her. We picked up some acorns, leaves and twigs which she announced is her "Collection". On the way home to end a perfect afternoon we stopped in the Bakery for a fresh swiss cream and madarine roll, yum yum. Will post the love pics up later of sophie with the duckies when I figure how to get the photos off the phone, went off without the camera again!
