Hopity hop hop hop!!

Thats what I seem to be doing at the moment!

Anyway went to Traci's craft class yesterday and made three lovely cards for Xmas. She very kindly acted as my taxi driver too with pick up and drop off service at the door!!! Will take some pics of the cards and post them tomorrow.

This is a pic of my 1st ever ATC which was made for a little craft group I belong to. It may be just a little card but to be perfectly honest I was really stumped as to what to do with it but I think it worked out quite well for a 1st attempt.

Tonight was proud momma time too for me. Harry had a parent's evening at his new school just to see how they are are all settling in. His teacher was really pleased and reckoned he has prob settled in the best out of the boys in his class. Not only that but all of his other teachers have commented at how happy, confident and polite he always is. This comment above anything else made me so proud. Of course I want him to do well academically but to hear that that he has adjusted well and is happy and well mannered made my day. Gosh did he get a big hug from his proud momma!!!!!

Right early night for me I think as sleeping with a plaster on your leg is not as easy as you think!!!!

Trying something new......

We had a lovely weekend. Its gone in a bit of a blur but it was lovely.

Traci very kindly invited us all round for Sunday Tea oooppps no sorry Sunday Dinner!!! It was fab and we all enjoyed it so Traci - thanks hun for feeding us we will be back next Sunday!!! LOL!

My foot is still aching a little and I have now got to realise that it is not going to heal over night. I have just got to be patient - hmmmmmm is that possible?

My latest creations are something totally new to me - ATC and Fat Book pages. I have posted just the pages today (front and back) so the other will have to wait for tomorrow.
I enjoyed doing them and it was quite a challenge to work with new dimensions of card.
Hope you like them xxx

I am being let out for a while!!!

Yes that's right I am escaping for a couple of hours this morning with a friend.
I know I am going slightly stir crazy at the mo so may be a little shopping and a cuppa in Waitrose will do me some good - easily pleased eh????

Well I am plastered!!!!!

Oh yes I am going to be in plaster for the next four weeks!!!!!
When they took the temp one off yesterday it was pretty evident that the foot was still broken and it was also a mulitude of colours. So I have a weight bearing plaster now which is fab as I can at least get about a bit more and more importantly I can take George to school.

So having done a few jobs around the house and the school run I am knackered so am going to take it slow for the rest of the day until this afternoon's school run. A little crafting and maybe some web surfing may be called for.

Fingers and Toes crossed please!

Yes I am seeing another doc today but this time it is about my foot at the hospital.
It has been in a temp plaster since last Thursday so this afternoon will see wether I will be plasterless or in a brand spanking new more permanent one. Can my foot be mended in a week???? Hmmmmm watch this space for an update.
I do think that my mate Traci is hoping for new plaster as she is dying to decorate one. It is really nice to have a friend with your interests at heart LOL.

Talking of Traci this lady has had some really good news over the last week. I am sooo pleased for her and it is really well deserved as she is one of the most hard working people I know. Well done hun - the boys and I are so pleased for you!

As for crafting well I have a number of projects on the 'go' at the mo so no new pics I am afraid but here is George's birthday card from a couple of weeks ago. He is a huge Cars fan as you can tell!!!!

Ok so I am not laughing now....

Right so I broke a bone in my foot ...... fair enough these things happen. But now I have got a chest infection too - what is going on??????

Feeling slightly sorry for myself but am getting about ok so things are not so bad.

Steve has not been well either so this really has been a poorly house.

The weekend was fairly quiet apart from a trip to Traci's on saturday for a spot of crafting. I made (with a little help from Traci) a fab album which I will take a piccie of tomorrow and post on here. Thanks Traci for keeping me from going completely stir crazy!!!!!!!!

This card was made quite a while ago from a monthly kit from tjcdesigns . Traci has lots of products for cardmaking and scrapbooking alike - I can highly recommend this site ;)

Well tonight I think I will be blog surfing and spending some time with my hubby xxxxxx

All I did was go to the theatre..............

and look what happened!!!!!!!!
I have broken a bone in my foot and I was sober at the time.
I am stunned that just twisting your foot can do this.

So at the moment I have a temporary cast on until Wednesday. Hopefully by then the break may have healed but if not then it is plaster for a few weeks. OMG!!!!!

The upside is I can't do housework at the mo as I can't put weight on the temp plaster at all. Yipeeeeee what a result! However this lack of movement is driving me bonkers so if it isn't good news on Wednesday then i am gonna scream.

Traci has been round to see me laugh and take photos. Friends eh??????

This weekend then will prob be taken up with crafting as nothing else can be done. Ah well hard life eh??????

Yes that is me - I am not very well. Infact I sound like an old man who has been smoking his entire life and I can tell you this - it's not attractive!!!!!!

Things have slowly been getting back to normal since school started last Wednesday and I am gradually getting back into that routine.

George has started year 1 and seems to like his new teacher and classroom assistant. But he has started to do the lets cry when the bell goes trick which is an absolute joy first thing in the morning. Hmmm that boy certainly knows which buttons to press.

Harry on the other hand has settled into his new school like a dream and seems to be really enjoying it. This is a relief as changing schools is such a big thing when you are 9 and the
differences between them are huge!

I could not resist some piccies which I have only just sorted out. George does not look too happy in the top piccie but I was determined to get one of them together.

I am going to attempt some crafting this afternoon as I have had to cancel my driving lesson. Bliss!!!!!!!!!

I Think we are ready.......

for school that is.

Clothes are all labelled and bags are packed. Boys have been showered and will be in bed early ready for first day back tomorrow.

Here is a piccie taken of Harry in 2003 when he wa starting year 1. He looks so diddy and very very cute!!!!!!
Tomorrow he starts his first day at the local middle school and year 5. My goodness how time has flown!!!!
I am more nervous than him I think and he is sooo excited.

George starts year 1 tomorrow with the same teacher Harry had back then. She is a lovely lady and I am really looking forward to his year ahead.

So tomorrow I am on my own for the first time in six and half weeks and that will be really weird. Then again I won't be entirely on my own as I am nipping over to Traci's for a chat and poss some crafting.

Right am going to spend some time with Harry before bedtime xxxx

It's been a few days!

Blimey it has been busy here with one thing or another!

Unfortunately not in a crafting sense but more of a post holiday pre school type of way.

But I think that as of now I can honestly say that we are all labelled and ready for school - hurrah!!! The only thing is I am really not looking forward to the early morning routine - urghhhh!!!!!
Then again they don't actually go back until Wednesday but tomorrow and Tuesday we are having 'practise runs' to get the boys prepared ;)

Today has been fun as George had a few friends over at the bowling alley for a little party. I was actually dreading it but every child was really well behaved and it was fab!!! He is well and truly birthdayed out and WILL be in bed by 7pm tonight.

I on the other hand may be catching up on blog reading and web browsing xxxx
