They did it!!!!!!

My friends Louise and Nic were walking the Three Peak Challenge today to raise funds for Brake in the name of Louise's son William. Here's the link again:

Well a couple of hours ago I heard from Nic's mum who phoned to say 'They Did It!!!!!!!'
I am so proud of my friends for doing this huge challenge during what was awful weather and emotional circumstances.
If you would like to donate to this worthy cause just click on the link above.
William is a special boy who we miss everyday xxxx

Poorly boy!!!!

Poor little Georgie is not very well today.
He has been suffering quite badly with his hayfever and to top it all off he now has an ear infection :(
What a shame!

So he has kept me on my toes today with docs appts etc etc. But he is good company at least :)

This piccie was taken a couple of weeks ago at Santa Pod where we indulged his love for all things petrol powered and fast!!!! LOL!

Nice and Easy!!!

Sometimes you want to make something but you don't want to think so much about what you are doing (if ya know what I mean?)

Thats what I was like with these cards.
Simple but effective i think ;)

Oh crikey!

Its been a week ago since I last posted!!!!
I am really not blogging regularly at the mo - then again I am not crafting too much either :(

Tuesdays seem to be the only day when I am playing with paper at the mo and this does not make for a happy bunny.

Things this week have not been great on the home front. We have had a big problem with Harry at school which was a huge shock as he is normally so good.
The school have been brill though and hopefully he will have learnt his lesson.
I hope so as to be honest its been a really emotional week for me and the lack of sleep and upset has left me feeling somewhat fed up!!! :(

Still life goes on and here is the card I made at last weeks class. I really like this card. Its got a mixture of techniques and I enjoyed making it.

No class tomorrow as Traci is in America training at Ranger U - lucky devil!!!!!!

Think I may dust the cobwebs off tonight and play with paper - I have really missed it!!!!

Oh wow!!!!!

The Foos were awesome - just really really awesome!!!!!
To hear 86,000 people singing My Hero was just one of the highlights of the night!
I have always been a big big fan of theirs but I am now totally hooked on seeing them live and next time they are here I will be seeing them again - oh yes!!!!!

I am also loving my car and the freedom passing my test has given me. yes it is still nerve wrecking every time I go out but I am getting there :)

I have craft club tomorrow and so will take a piccie of what I make to show you xxx

I am sooooooo excited!!!!!

Oh yes!!! At 8pm tonight i will be (hopefully) watching possibly the greatest rock band on earth!!!!!!!

Steve and I are going to watch The Foo Fighters and I cannot wait!!!!!!

Yay!!!! I passed!!!!!!!
I am so stunned, and still in shock that after all this time I have finally done it.
I was so nervouse but can honestly say that the examiner was fab and totally put me at ease. We were having a great chat and before I knoew it the test was over.

So yesterday afternoon we went shopping and we have (or will have on Thursday) a new car. Steve is still keeping the old car for work but this little beauty is our new family car :)
Isn't it lovely - I am a very lucky girl :)

That wasn't the end of our good news either. In the evening our neighbours popped round with a card for me and asked us if we would like to be godparents to their baby boy Freddie? Would we? What an honour and so unexpected as we have only known them for 2.5 years but we have obviously made an impression :)

Anyway am going to nurse my poorly ear as I have come down with an ear infection :(

It's Monday tomorrow!!!!

And boy do I have a big day tomorrow!!!!!
Finally at the age of ahem 34 i am taking my first driving test!!!!!!
OMG I am very very nervous!!!!!!!

By 1pm tomorrow I will know if I can buy myself a car and have so much freedom for the boys and i or if my poor instructor is stuck with me for a little while longer.

Please please keep fingers and toes crossed for me :)

Poor Harry had some bad news this week during a rehearsal for his play. Unfortunately just after he was given his part his voice started to break and although he has been having extra lessons he just cannot hit those high notes anymore. As a result he has lost the role but has been given another speaking part which doen't require so much singing. he was really really gutted but once he realised he would be using splurge guns he quickly changed his mind :)

I don't really have anything craftig wise to show you today - will sort some pics out.

Right going to have an early night - will be back with results tomorrow :) x
