Oops forgot to blog


Several reasons...

I actually managed to do some crafting for once! I have been busy with some cards and a LO this week, must remember to photograph them asap.

I have been getting various bits around the house fixed. Curry's messed me around with delivering my new dishwasher, so I lost most of Thursday trying to sort it out. Never have I met such bone idle delivery men!

I bought Alex a new midsleeper bed, which was a disaster. Ended up taking it back to Ikea as it was faulty. So back to the drawing board for her bedroom. Suggestions welcome...

On a more positive note, I did some photography for a card company today. Can't wait to see it in print! This was my first attempt, so I hope they like it!

I also received my Hobbycraft vouchers, so I will be going there this week to get me some nice treats. I think to spend the full £45 will be tricky, as Hobbycraft is not a great place for me to buy stash I really want. I'm thinking I will stock up on mountboard and the suchlike.

I am in the market for some new stamps... so off I go to browse!

I'm back

Have had one of those weeks where I've felt swamped. No idea where it came from, and it seems to be passing thankfully. All of a sudden I felt horribly lonely. We had lots of people here on and off last weekend for Alex's party, but still I felt out on a limb. I suppose that is something I will just have to cope with for now. Not a lot I can do to change it, is there!

I got the girls a trampoline this week. Got it for the fantastic price of £79.99, from Netto believe it or not! A ten foot trampoline complete with cover and enclosure for that price is amazing! Now to get the decking pulled out as it is rotten in places, so the trampoline can go there. I also need to get the lawn sorted, but fortunately I have my buddy Julie's dad Derek sorting things out for me. Gardening really doesn't do anything for me lol!

Not feeling so good. Sorry.

Never said Happy Birthday Alex!

Alex was 4 last Wednesday while we were on holiday. Didn't post on the day as the connection was down.
So Happy Birthday Alex!
More pics to share...

If no news is good news...

Does that mean all news is bad news?
It would certainly seem that way here just now.
Yesterday I heard that my work colleague Martin passed away on Sunday. He was 53. Then this morning I heard that the mother of one of Alex's nursery friends died last Wednesday, aged 39.
So all in all lots of sadness.
Tonight I am praying for Jamie, Martin's son, and for Alex's friend and her 3 sisters as they face life without their mummy.

Home again

Arrived home last night, exhausted, and my house has been consumed by the laundry monster! Feeling a touch jet lagged, hence my post at this hour!
I will write more later, but I wanted to share some pictures now that I am back in the world of faster internet connections!
