Chasing tails.

Thats how it is at the mo and I am not liking it.
Inbetween working, looking after the boys and general day to day doings I feel as if I am in a whirl at the mo.
I have made a couple of very quick cards but thats about it. I really need to get my Christmas Journal finished - I am up to 26th Dec so slowly getting there :)
More work tomorrrow but looking forward to chilling on Sunday :)

Hello there!

It's been a week since I last posted but things have been a little strange around here recently.

Steve's Grandma sadly passed away on Sunday morning and it has left us feeling a little numb. The funeral is next Friday so until then we are trying to keep things normal for the boys.

We celebrated Valentine's Day fairly quietly due to circumstances and the fact I was working during the day. But hubs still bought me a dozen roses and some choccies, which are yummy :)

Here is a pic of the card I made for him. It is a first attempt at the medallion stamps and I quite enjoyed using them. So much so I may have purchased one by mistake......oooops!!!

This week the boys are on half term hols but unfortunately I am in work this afternoon and Friday oh and Saturday - no rest for the wicked eh?

I took the chaps up to my Mum and Dads on Monday for a couple of hours and it was lovely to see them. It is my only regret of living where we do and that is I don't get to see them as much as I would like. But we still see them as much as we can and when we do get together we have lots of laughs. Thanks again for a lovely day xxxxx

Right off to sort some lunch out xxxx

Things are not great here at the moment which is why I have not updated the blog.
Steve's grandma is very very poorly and its hard for all concerned.
Will post again when things are a little more settled.

And it's still snowing!!!!!

Just when we think it is all over we get more.

But don't think I am moaning about it as the four of us are at home in the warm chilling out. Well apart from Steve who is actually working :(

It really is a blizzard out there. So much so the boys don't want to go out just yet, which I can't blame them.

This is the view from our bedroom window and was taken about an hour ago. It really looks beautiful out there :)

Here is a pic of Harry from yesterday. He loved the sledging and was with a group of friends most of the afternoon. Well until he had a slight sledging accident which has resulted in a couple of bruised legs as well as a bruised ego!

Snowman building is the plan for later - oh this is fun!!!

More snow!!!

Yesterday we heard that we may get more snow and to be honest as we don't usually get a lot in this area I wasn't hopeful.......but look what we awoke to!!!!!!!

To say i was excited is a slight exaggeration LOL!!!

We have been out twice today and had lots of fun with friends. The schools were shut thankfully and so the boys could make the most of the snow.

The forecast is for more of the wite stuff tonight so hopefully we may get another day off tomorrow.

We had lots of snow!!!

Oh boy have we?

We were so disappointed Monday morning when we awoke to just a very light covering on the ground.

But then in the afternoon that all changed and from 1pm til 9pm it snowed - boy did it?

When the boys came out of school yesterday we all went over to the park with our sledge and had some fun! It was really really great.

We got home and following hot baths, change into pj's we indulged a lovely hot choc with marshmallows - yum!

Mind you it is bitterly cold today and the fun soft snow has now turned a little icy but we still went over the field this afternoon to make the most of it :)
