We went to the Zoo!!!!

We have had a busy couple of days ut it has been fun!

Steve is off for the week so we are chilling out and have a few day trips planned.

One of our plans was to go to Whipsnade Animal Park. We have not been since I was expecting George so decided it was time to revisit.
We had a fab day, walked miles and boy was it hot!!!!!!
I have some brill pics to print out and do something with. For now I though I would share this one with you. I loved these otters, they were very friendly and extremely nosey!!!!!!

Tomorrow we are off to visit Steve's Granny who is celebrating her 91st birthday. She is a lovely lady and the boys always enjoy visiting her. In the evening Harry has a cricket match so its another busy but lovely day ahead :)

Its the school hols!!!!

Thats right!!!! Oh boy six weeks.......bliss!!!

For the remainder of this week we are just chilling and catching our breath a little, but next week Steve is off for the week and we have a few excursions planned. :)
Mind you seeing as Steve's car failed its MOT yesterday and is likely to end up costing £250.00 squids to sort it out, I thank god for Tesco vouchers which are paying for next week :)

Here is another fairy card which I created the other day. Its very simple but you really have to love Scrapbook Sally paper flowers they really are fab! Think I may be investing in a couple more bags from Particraft at some point.

Talking of Particraft you have to check out Traci's Particraft blog for sneaky peeks and upcoming events this lady is organising. She is mega talented and if you have never been on a workshop of hers then you have a chance to in a couple of weeks!
There is also the latest online edition of Particraft Magazine being released on 1st August which I can't wait to look at as Traci keeps dropping a couple of hints about it. It really does promise to be a fab read with some brill projects to inspire!

Right enough plugging LOL!!! I am off to check my friends zoo as she is off in France for 10 days....... ahhh some people eh?

Mamma Mia

Oh what a fab night I had last night watching this film at the cinema.
It had something for everyone - laughs, tears and a bit of a sing song (well come on how could you listen to an Abba song and not!!)
I really want to see it again it was that good!
So if you fancy a girlie night out with your pals this is the thing to see - oh and don't forget the Ben & Jerrys Cookie Dough Ice cream to dig through while watching!!

I do craft sometimes......honest!!!

Yup thats right!!!! I have made a card!!!!

I used a fairy image which came free with a magazine for this one and teamed up the Scrapbook Sally flowers it looks pretty good I think :)

George had his sports day this morning and a good time was had by all in years one and two!!! I do have some piccies to share once I have retrieved them from my camera.
Only two more days at school for my boys and then its the hols. I am really looking forward to spending some time with them free from the routine of school and even better is that Steve will be off work for three of those weeks :)

Tomorrow sees me having a fab time with the ladies at the weekly craft group. I really really look forward to it as we have a giggle and make great projects with Traci.

Right am off to spend some time with hubs xxx

Poor Spud!

My little one is proper poorly and caused his momma major heart attacks yesterday :(

His neck started to ache in the morning and by the afternoon he was screaming in pain (and this is with painkillers every three hours).
Luckily our lovely Dr was available at the surgery and he was throughly examined for half an hour before she decided that I needed to get him to hospital and fairly quickly!!!!
OMG!!! Harry was on his way at home and Steve was stuck in Birmingham until at least 10 that evening.
Still, I managed to sort out Harry with a friend and then got to him to hospital where they have diagnosed swollen lymph nodes :( Because he has had the ear infection for so long now these nodes have swollen up and that was causing the immense pain.
We were home yesterday eveing with clear instructions on pain relief and massaging so today I have my nurses hat on ........ again!!!!!

Mixed bag!!

Today has been a real mixed bag!!!

First off was a trip to the docs for George and poor little boy still has an ear infection :( So he is now on ten days worth of antibiotics. The doc was stunned that he wasn't screaming in pain so it would seem that my little soldier has a very high pain threshold.

I did manage to pop into craft club today and we were making a sample book of distress colours which will come in very handy - thanks Traci!!!

Made this card last night for my Bro's birthday and used my Cricut machine for the first time in ages. :)

Got Sports Day for George tomorrow morning if he is feeling ok that is.

Phew!!! What a week!!!

My goodness last week dashed by in the blink of an eye!!!

We have the usual end of school year events starting last week. Harry had his school production of Bugsy Malone running on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night which meant he wasn't getting home until gone 10pm!!!!
As well as that he had his sports day and his school trip - all of which made for an extremely tired boy this weekend.
The play was fantastic!! All of the cast and staff had put so much effort into it and boy did it show in the end result - we were so proud! :)

This pic is a card I made at craft class last week using vellum and Adirondack Pens. The overall effect is very cool and infact very Andy Warholish I think!!!!

Talking of crafting I made 2 things yesterday - whoopeeeeee!!! But unfortunately as it is for Particraft I cannot show you yet. :(

Right off to nurse my little one who is poorly ....... again!!!! xx
