So where have I been????

Well now, that would be telling wouldnt it!  To be fair nowhere really!  Well nowhere with a camera!  We went away down to the caravan last week, got out my little friendly camera only to find that I had taken out the battery and forgotten to put it back in!  Cant believe that I did that - well ok maybe I can!

We got back wednesday and found some little visitors in our garden - which I will post pics of later but its too early in the morning to do that now!  They were baby hoglets, little known to us tha  these little critters should not be out in the day on their own!  After a bit of research we fed them then on friday found out that they shouldnt be out without their mummy at all.  So we rang Jayne at The Happy Hedgehog and took little Millie (as Lottie named her) down to Jayne, apparently she is eating a little now so fingers crossed.  She told us to be on the lookout for more!  So about 7.30pm we found bubba 2, down to Jayne that went too, unfortunatly he didnt survive long.  Well now yesterday morning, I just chanced to look outside and low and behold there was bubby number 3, again quite poorly, so Jayne is now looking after 2 of the hoglets.

Now Jayne is a wonderful lady, because she takes in these critters for nothing, she isnt a registered charity, so pays out for the care for these little animals herself/ So I have made her a stack of cards to start selling from her home, car boots or any other means she see's fit (and I will continue to in order to support her).  I have akso had a clear out and a little shopping spree in order to provide her with ramekin bowls, cotton wool, cotton buds, fleece blankets, poultry based cat food/biscuits and dioralyte, all of which are of huge use to her!  So any hedgehog fans living near Yateley can drop any of those items in to her at any time and I know that she will be ever so gratefully or if you prefer to make a donation to support her work then there is a dontate via paypal on her website she also has a facebook page too where you can read about their progress!

I have finally lost my 2 stone at slimming world, only another 3 stone to go till I am at my personal target!!!!

Anyhow will keep you updated on hoggy things over the next few days

Why does nothing go to plan!

Ok so today we were meant to be castless. but no we are now sporting a rather florescent (spelt wrongly Im sure!) pink cast for another 2 weeks.  When the took the shoulder height cast off, Lottie started crying, when the doctor examined it she cried more and told him it hurt.  So he said, back to the plaster room.  I suppose that at least this one is only up to just under the elbow.  Working it out the hospital has had over £20 in car park fees off us this time, you would think they could have the decency to at least sweep the cigarette butts out of if, bearing in mind how much money they must have had out of us including canteen and shop sales too!

So that was today gone!

The holidays have finally arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay. I finished work today, I have had a ball at my school and ma now very sad that I have to leave, but excited to be going on somewhere else.  Im with a very different catchment of children this coming year so will prove to be very interesting.

We are off to the hospital again tomorrow, fingers crossed that everything is ok and we may have no cast after tomorrow!!!!

The Wanderer returns

Been a while since I was last here again, Ive turned into one bad blogger, but to be fair life is just busy, busy, busy.  Ive started selling handmade cards on ebay again - so in need of the extra cash, so most nights I am churning out personalised cards leaving little time for anything else!

Lottie broke her arm in June so have spent the last few weeks back and forth to hospital appointement, Im hoping that when we go on wednesday the cast will be off for good and everything will be ok again!  Fingers crossed.

Well while most people have broken up from school we still have 2 days to go next week, so unfair, I need a holiday!

Nearly Easter!

Well the wedding over thank fully, some of you will know that I amd sister in law arent the best of friends, so I was glad when the night ended and I could go home. The glasses of wine made the day more bearable. Anyway, the cake looked lovely the sky was blue and se looked like a Barbie Princess Doll. Enough said I feel!

Anyway, thats over and we can now get on with our lives!  Hooray!

So for the rest of the weekend there will be loads of chocolate and eggs so all will be well.

Wedding Day

Well today my baby Bro gets married, here are just some of the bits and bobs that I have prepared for them!

Popping in!

It's been a while again, Im not much good at this blogging stuff lately, life is soooo busy.  I found out that my contract at the school Im at will finish in August, there may be a post but no guarentees, however I have bagged myself a new job already, first one that I even went to an interview for, so Im well pleased, especially after last year and going for about a million interviews!  Its in a school that has just come out of special measures, so Im not completely convinced Im doing the right thing, however, I hope I am and I am looking forward to it!

Over the past 2 months I have been religiously going to slimming world and lost myself a whopping 1 stone and 4 lb.  I have a long way to go, but have set myself a target of loosing another 2 stone before the end of the year, and I will do it!

Its been a year since Gramps passed away and I did find the last month really hard.  I had a shocking day at work, where I felt so pressured that I just couldnt stop myself from crying, prompting my head to offer me a phone number for the LA counselling service, which I did decline, Im not into all that counselling stuff, had it years ago, it just messed with my head more I think!  What she didnt realise was that she had put my class assembly on the day that Gramps went into hospital, and I felt so pressured to perform and be on form that I just snapped and couldnt cope!  Anyhow, Im over that and spent some time down at the crem in the blazing sunshine on the anniversary of his death, which made me feel loads better.

Next thursday sees my baby brother getting married, big mistake, I keep telling him, but he is adament that he is going to, so good luck mate, you will need it, its a life sentence!!!  Shame gramps wont be there to see it, he would have been very proud!  Lottie will be a bridesmaid and is very excited to be one, she is on count down, only7 more sleeps to go now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyhow I am going to sign off, wont be around for a few days as off to see MIL!!!!  Big mistake after the last time, but going to be charitable, hopefully this time she wont throw us out after 1/2 hour of being there, you never know though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time for a face lift!

What do you think of my new blog background then??  I thought it was about time I gave it a new lease of life ad a new colour!

Friday, 25 February 2011

So whats new then?

My goodness me, 2 posts in one month, I must be mad!!!!  Anyhow the painting in the bedroom still goes on, yes I know I wanted to be done by wednesday, but life never goes to plan, tomorrow I WILL be putting her room back together, complete with pink fairy curtain!!!!!!!!!!  Daddy will love it! or maybe NOT.

So today i visited Make-It at Farnborough, as I do most years, this year was more disappointing that last, but hey ho!  Saying that I did buy some bits and bobs, including, loads of glue roller refills - at 99p each would have been a crime not to, about 8 million rolls of DST - ok a lie, a bout 8, some fab templates for making yummy borders with for scrapping, I had seen someone at my crop on monday using these and tried everywhere online that I could think of to get some but to no avail, today I walk in and spotted them on the every crafts a £ stall, bargain!!  I snapped them up quickly!!!!

I also purchased a kit to make these roses:

 and these lovely flowers:

So I keep promising to show you stuff Ive been working on, so here are a few pages:

hope you like them!

Now where is it???

I am certain that my mojo hath left the building, and has been gone so long I really dont know what I am now looking for!  My camera has dissappeared to the far side of the earth never to be seen again too!

I have had loads of non scrapping projects on the go, but till I find that blinking camera I cannot post piccies of my latest hobby!

I am in progress of redecorating Lotties room at the moment, today was day 1, we gutted under the bed, and in the wardrobe too, I have filled my black wheelie bin and a bit more besides!  so tomorrow is the other side of the bedroom and hopefully a little bit of decorating too!   We are going for the same boring white colour that is throughout the house, DH does not do colour! The reason for the re decoration, well since my little Lottie turned 6 last month, she is no longer young enough for a cot bed!  As lovely as out Mamas and Papas one is, she needs a proper sized bed, so my half term holiday will now be spent decorating and re-organising the tiny room to cram all her stuff back into!  Good luck to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy New Year

to anyone who reads my blog, not that there has been much to read over the last 5/6 months.  Life is so busy, there barelt feels time to breathe sometimes.

We spent yesterday early evening at the panto, it was fab as ever and well worth the money then we trundled onto the local Chinese restaurant and had a even fabbier time.  Lottie was well behaved and excited to hand Grandma her card made with lots of love - for her birthday.   This year is the first year in a long time that I actually went into a shop and bought a card, to be fair it bought home to me why I now make all my cards - £3.39 for a printed card with a few words!  Will be making them in future I can tell you!  I did however manage to make her pressie which I shall post later when she actually has it!!!

So the rest of the day will be spent chillaxing with a video and a glass of wine I feel.  Ive not made New Years Resolutions because I can never keep them so dont see the point in bothering, I always say yo blog more, eat less and get fit none of which I manage!  So, leave me a comment and let me know, whats your resolution if you make one!
