Mad Cows!

We are just back from holiday.
We spent a week in a log cabin in Loch Monzevaird in Creiff, we have been there before and just love it. The weather was lovely, the dogs were off the leads and the kids had a ball!
On the Wednesday my parents and grampa came to spend the day with us and after lunch we decided to leave grampa with the dogs and the rest of us would walk round the loch.
It is about 1 1/2 miles right round and we were abour 100 yards from the cabin when we came accross a large group of menacing looking cows and a bull.
We debated walking through the field, but the cows did not look happy and my hubby was wearing a red top!
So back we walked.....................................
And came accross ANOTHER LOAD OF COWS!
At this point my daughter was hyterical, so we decided to walk up through the field to the main road and get back to the cabin that way.
It was also roasting hot, but eventually we reached the main road, and.................................
NO verges to walk on, and a very fast road!
So mum, myslef and the 2 kids sat and waited while my hubby and dad went back to get the Land rover so we could all pile in that.
So after saying to my grampa that we would only be an hour, we were away for about 3!!

So that night my parents stayed for dinner and they went out and bought us all..........................

Girly night in

Blogger is letting me upload my pictures, so here are a couple of my kids, taken the other day

Last night I had 2 of my good friends Heather and Roz over, my lovely Dh made us dinner and heather brought enough treats to feed an army!
My kids were packed off to bed and we sat and watched Bridget Jone's Diary, have watched this loads, but it is still a favourite! We also sat and blethered and ate lots of chocolate!
A late night, but at least with the schools being off, i did not have to get up early.
It is raining here today, which I think is not a bad thing, but my kids are still out playing!
Right must go as have hundreds to do.

Another hot day!

Roasting hot here today!

My kids spent the day eating ice lollies and playing in water, they have got fab wee tans already.
I spent the day doing admin for the Luxurious Angels retreat, details of which can be found at and packing orders, so not much sun for me!
We go away for a week on Saturday and am hoping it won't be too hot, we are also taking our 2 little dogs with us, one of whom does not travel well.
Am away now, but will leave you with a couple of pics I took of my kids out playing........ OK it is not playing will try again tomorrow

More Angels

Another fab LO to share with you, this time from Roz, just gorgeous!

We are so lucky to have so many talented teachers: Kirsty, Anna, Roz and Maggie coming to teach at the Luxurious Angels retreat!
Email me at if you would like some more information.

Right bed is calling, night all

Cute or Cuter??

In case you have been asleep all day today, you will have noticed that we posted on UKS today about the Luxurious Angels Retreat! Don't worry there are still some places, so contact me for a booking form.
A pre- retreat challenge that I have given to our talented teachers is to "scrap the Angel", and here is the first one from Maggie

It is very clever and lifts to reveal the "real" Angel!

So cute or Cuter, which one do you prefer?

My Ikea trip

Last week, when I dropped the kids at my mum's I paid a little visit to Ikea. I needed pin boards and storgae boxes for my new craft room! Anyway i saw this cookie jar and thought it would be great for all the blossoms I have (which are far too nice to use!)
What do you think?

Am so tired!!!!!!
Last night i was up to the wee small hours chatting to 2 friends on MSN, first time I have used it, and quite liked it, my DH says I am a sad muppet!!!
Anyway got to bed around 2 and was woken at 4 as my DD had a sore tummy, she came into bed with me, but wriggled so much she was sent back to her own bed, at 5.30 was woken by DS crying as he had wet the bed, so bed changed and he wnet back to sleep, so far so good! Back to bed and woken at 7.00 by DD with sore tummy again, so just got up!!!!
Tonight I am going to bed early!!!!!

Got my furniture delivered today for my office, which will now also be my Scrapping room, have been unpacking my stash all day (loads of it, LOL!!!!!) and you can now almost see my kitchen table. I had forgotten what colour it was.
Have not actually done any scrapping in my room yet though, but there is always tomorrow!
I also got a new camera recently so have been playing about with that and Photoshop, I have uploaded here a photo I took of my wee girl Lauren.
Still trying to get a scrapping weekend sorted, I have found the most fab hotel, so some more negociations are required!
