It has been a wet week but we have had a busy time visiting places and exploring the beautiful Devon countryside.
When I have sorted through the piccies I will give you a peek :)

Steve and his family have a long and tough day ahead of them.
This afternoon in Edinburgh they will be saying goodbye to hubs' Uncle Morris who died after a very long illness.
We are just thankful that he is at peace and no longer in pain.
Today I am going to keep Steve's dad and granny company and make sure they behave. It seems so weird not having my boys around at the mo. The house is so quiet and I really do miss them loads.

I am a little unsure of how I will feel about this as it will be the longest I have left both of them since George was born.
I know they will be well looked after by Mum and Dad as I don't trust anyone more than them with my babies. :)
Infact the boys will probably not miss me at all LOL!
Here is a pic of the album I made at last weeks workshop with Traci. I really enjoyed the day and am looking forward to the next one - hint hint!

On Saturday we are not doing a great deal but Sunday we are dropping the boys off at my Mum and Dads for a few days.
The only downside besides missing my boys will be that I have to drive home........down the M6 oh crikey!!!
Yes thats right Steve and I are getting to spend some time together on our own. OMG does this mean we will have to talk to each other ha ha ha!!!!
I have been looking after 4 children today and boy did I know there were 4. They really did test my sanity bless their hearts.
No crafting to show you at the mo but here is a pic from Whipsnade Zoo which I actually quite like. I hate having my pic taken as I don't think I am photogenic but this one isn't too bad!

Went to craft club this morning with the boys and can honestly say that I won't be doing that today. They have just been at each other all day and it has really really annoyed me!
Needless to say they are now in bed for a well deserved early night!!!!
This afternoon I uploaded pictures from our day trips last week to Whipsnade and Warwick. I could not believe how many I took.... people must have thought I was a Japanese tourist as there are loads and loads. :)
The layout was another created for Particraft last month using Fancy Pants products :) To be honest the photo does not do the layout justice as it does look really good in RL ...... honest!

This meant driving over there on my own with the boys for the first time. Have to say although it was nerve wrecking I did it and felt quite proud of myself. Its only a 45 min journey but the roads involve the A14, a couple of nasty roundabouts, and the fen roads.
Small steps as they say.......small steps.
Here is another card using the heart stamp set I mentioned yesterday. I made this card a while ago for hubs for no other reason ........ just because.
Tomorrow is hopefully going to be slightly quieter with abit of craft club thrown in too - hurrah!!!!!!

We have had some dreadful news this afternoon concerning Steve's Uncle and Godfather. He has been ill for quite a while now and was admitted into hospital a few days ago but he suddenly passed away his morning. Although his illness was terminal we were just not expecting this news just yet.
Poor Steve is understandably in shock as is his Dad, Mum and Granny, who has now lost two sons.
Its not an easy time at the moment but we are trying to think of the good times.
I have posted a card which was in last months Particraft magazine. The hearts are part of a stamp set which is one of my favs and certainly on my shopping list while the rik rak and button are Fancy Pants. All products are available through your local Particraft demonstrator.

2 1/2 years ago he bought with his birthday money this little hamster which he named Hermione. In that time she made us laugh and Harry has taken such care of her and given her so much love.
Unfortunately over the last few days she has lost a lot of weight and she has not been as perky as usual. We know she is quite elderly for a hamster and that she is bound to be slowing down but we felt she needed a check up.
The vet informed Steve and Harry that she was really not well at all and if not in pain at that moment it was only a matter of time. Harry made the decision that it was not fair that she should be in pain and so the vet put her to sleep.
We have all shed tears today and I know we will all miss her terribly especially Harry who loved his little friend so much xxxxx
