Holidays are nearly over!

Well we are almost at the end of the school hols, so that means back to work monday and back to the boring humdrum that is our routine, up at 6.30, drop charley off at mums for 7.30, work for 7.45, back at 9.15. Housework, toddlers and shopping till 2pm then off to work again! What joy I hate my split days.

We've been busy though since I last blogged. We've been to legoland, had the mother in law to stay, been to Trilake park and fed the animals (not that you can feed many with the foot and mouth crisis!) been to Bournemouth and Portsmouth and visited great grandma! So lots on, done quite a bit of scrapping too.

Charlie has made some of her christmas cards and doesnt want to stop doing card making especailly for daddy, she is daddy mad at the minute.

New pages

Can't believe how long since I blogged, Ive been working on a do-crafts challenge page, It had to have red in it, glitter, a tag and brad, have a look and see what you think, Im quite happy with it.

We spent this morning at Fizzy Kids having a whale of a time on the ball pool and going up and down the slide. I am now totally frazzled and so is poor old Uncle Steve who also got dragged along.

Anyway just a quick blog for tonight will write more tomorrow.

The weekend is here

Well here we are again, the weekend is here. My brother came over for a meal last night which went really well, even though Charley decided that she wasnt going to sleep till after ten.

Been crafting a lot at the moment, Ive completed a few scrapbooking pages which I am really pleased with and even got my light box out yesterday and did some embossing, Im not fantastic at it but its been so long since Ive done any that I have time to get better!

We had fun yesterday splashing about in the paddling pool and just generally playing about in the garden.

I will upload my scrapbooking pictures later and you can see what I have been up too!

Well today Charley surpassed herself with Daddy, I popped to the post office just to post a letter that should have gone off weeks ago! OOpps! when I got back all hell had broken loose and she was sobbing on the sofa! 'I lost you mummy!' were her words! After a several hugs and a few smarties (bribary works) she calmed down! But would not let me leave her side!

Spent the rest of the morning re-arranging her bedroom and tidying the house, how exciting! Can't wait till Steve is back at work on Friday and I can do some serious crafting, will add a few pics of my recent scrapbook pages then! Looking forward to just having some ME time!

Made a couple of bitty babes to go into a scrapbook page of Charley, for when I eventually get round to it, she was helping Grandma with her gardening, when I say helping I mean that in the loosest sense of the word!

Basingstoke Balloon Festival

Friday we went off to the Balloons over Basingstoke fesitival and as ever it was great! Charlie excelled herself this evening. She took Grandads hand and said 'Come' as she was walking off with him towards the slides and trampolines, she said 'You go pennies Grandad!' I had to laugh as with everyone else that was there!

We stayed for the night glow, take a look at some of the pics they are great!
