Here's to 2009

As I can't wait for this year to be over!

We lost my grampa earlier in the year, a week later DH's cousin passed away and 2 days ago we lost my FIL. He had been in hospital for around 3 weeks. We went up to Skye before Xmas so DH got to say his goodbyes.
We are just waiting to hear when the funeral will be, but we don't think it will before the 5th of Jan.
On top of everything else that happened last year I will be glad to see 2009.

I do have some amazing friends that have been here for me - thank you!!

The kids had a great xmas and Santa brought a Wii - wow how fab are they? I especially like Mario Kart!

Sale now on!!!

we have a massive sale now on at Angel Crafts, with loads of bargains to grab!!
We have reductions in Maya Road, Sassafrass, Basic Gray, Twiddleybitz, Scenic Route and much more. Check them all out right here
Had a busy weekend, DD had a sleepover so we had an extra 2 kids in the house, although from the screaming when Alexandra won X-factor you would have thought it was an extra 20, lol!

Tonight I need to finish packing orders and do the ironing, so must get on

Xmas shopping

DH was off work today so we went xmas shopping and oh what fun we had! We spent a lovely hour in a queue in Woolies as they had up to 50% off, really sad that it is closing as we were in and out of there all the time.
Tomorrow am going shopping with my mum and Lauren, my mum always gets some clothes for Lauren at xmas and not the usual Asda clothes that we buy them, lol!

I leave you with a photo of my toothless wee boy (all I want for Xmas are my 4 front teeth................)

Busy, busy, busy

Had a really busy weekend, Friday I had 2 of Lauren's friends over and Gordons (girl) friend - they all had great fun playing.
Saturday morning I went to watch Lauren at her riding lesson and she is coming along really well. Saturday afternoon we went to the Church xmas fair, Lauren was helping out so Gordon and I came home with his (girl) friend and Lauren came home later.
Saturday night we all watched X-factor, the kids just love that although we all want someone different to win.
Sunday I went to the crop in Stewarton with shop in tow and managed to do - wait for it.......................... 1 LO!!!!

Today I have been working on this

This is a Twiddleybitz advent house, I have painted it, added Basic Gret Figgy Pudding papers and a tonne of bling - had so much fun with this! Now it is full of sweeties

Sick kids, scrapping and more

Lauren came home from school on Thursday in tears as she felt so ill, she has a splitting headache and feels very sick, yesterday took her to the doctor who said it was avirus and just to keep giving Calpol, you just feel so sorry for them when they are ill.
So we did not go out all weekend - but seeing as it did not stop raining I was quite glad. So what did we do instead??

Scrapped!! Gordon did a speed scrap in about 5 mins and it is framed to go up in his room, Lauren did one of her and her pals and I did one using November's ribbon kit - have taken a pic but the light is not too great just now.
This is called Conkers

I have used scrummy Sasafrass papers, thickers, and stamp, Riff raff leaf and ribbons from our November Ribbon kit - available soon!

Yesterday our internet connection died and was not available again until this morning - what a disaster and am so glad it is back on now!

We have managed to book another holiday, but have decided to stay in Scotland.

We are going to Strathyre Forest, my brother was there in the summer and said it was lovely, and we get to take the dogs too so we are all happy!

The kids were not happy yesterday though as they said "our school is the only school in Scotland that is open" well hardly but the only one in the area!

We had booked for a week to Lanzarote for the school October week, Sunday travel agent calls to say company we were flying with have gone bust, and they will try to get us another flight.
Today they call and say yes thay have got one and want another £800, err I think not, so holiday is cancelled.

Have been really busy lately, so no time to blog and now my bed is calling....

Catching up

Have been so busy recently, so no time to blog!

Lauren was at summer school all last week, and loved it. She finished at lunchtime each day which meant a drive out to get her, we also got their schhol uniforms, bags, shoes, etc all sorted out for going back a week on Monday. How quick have the holidays flown in?
I traded in my little car recently and was really sad about that, and am getting used to the other one.
Yesterday my parents took my kids and nephew up to Crieff for the week, and I am missing them already!
Hamish and I went out for a lovely meal last night (our anniversary is in a couple of weeks - 18 years) so we decided to celebrate early.
We have also booked another holiday, we are away with the kids to lanzarote for a week in October (need to keep the tan topped up, lol!!!!)

I have loads to do next week, need to get figures to my accountant, do a stock take and tidy up and tend to the garden! Also need to sort out my next crop for September, will be good to catch up with everyone. I have a demo sorted out already!

Loads of new goodies on the way including Sassafrass, October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, Riff raff, Hambly, Fiskars Threading water punches and more!

Back from Holiday

We are now back from holiday, we were in Feurteventura for 2 weeks and it was fab!! We stayed in a gorgeous hotel just off the beach and the weather was amazing. The kids had a great time playing about the pool and beach and the food was great, even if Gordon did insist on a daily dose of pasta, lol!!!
here is a pic of the kids on the beach

The other day we went looking at cars, my Ford Focus was getting a little tired so time to trade it in. As my last 2 cars have been silver I did not want another that colour. So I have picked a car and will collect in a couple of days and the colour, well it is called Chill, which is errrrr sort of silver, lol!

Sunday, July 06, 2008

Where did the week go??

Well that is the first week of the holidays gone, er where exactly??? It has just flown by.
Kids have been busy playing (between rain showers), Gordon's record this week was 4 pairs of shorts in one day, he can't seem to keep away from puddles, lol!
On Friday Lauren went to the pictures with her friend and then they had a sleepover here, and Saturday I took them both to the stables for the day, Lauren is still sleeping which is really not like her.
I have a busy few days before we go on holiday on Wednesday, today need to go to East Kilbride for few bits and pieces, tonight we have friends over for dinner. Tomorrow night our Financial adviser is over to see us and Tuesday will be spent doing last minute packing for us going.
Really looking forward to this holiday, in all it's not been a great year with my grampa not being well and being admitted to hospital and then him passing away. He was such a lovely man, and always there when I needed him, he was like a second dad to me. My hubby's cousin also passed away and together with everything else has made this a not so wonderful year.

Anyway I leave you with a pic of a wee quote book I made Gordon's teacher.

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Crash, Bang, Wallop

On Saturday Gordon fell off his bike and hit his head against the pavement, he came rushing in with an egg size lump on his forehead. So we had to take him to hospital, his daddy drove while I sat in the back and prodded him to stay awake as he was very sleepy and feeling sick. At the hospital he was checked over and after a few hours we were able to go home
On Sunday our council had arranged a photography class so myself Jenni and Linda went out for lunch and along to that, it was really good, thanks girls for a really fab day xxx

Today I have spent my time making up next month's ribbon kit, entitled "Botanical Dreams" and boy it looks lush!!!

I leave you with a pic of my dogs playing

Lauren has a talk to do at school next week and wants to do it about Gordon, so I said that I would make a wee book for her.
I have used a Cosmo Cricket Blackboard book, BAmpop papers and ribbons from May and June's kits

My mojo for various reasons had gone walk about, but I think it has come back!

I leave you with some pages from the book, Lauren still needs to do her journalling

Crop tomorrow and a 12 hour one at that, I think Linda will be taking bets on the number of LO's I do - lots honest!!

Today was DS's assembly at school, they did it on Travelling Ted, it was so good. Both my kids have been out playing loads with this nice weather, poor wee Gordon is covered with bruises and scratches from falling all the time.
