Icky icky icky!

Yup thats me - it's all finally caught up with me and I have come down with a stinking cold which has done nasty things with my sinuses :(
I woke up this morning looking like I had been punched in the face. This is not a good look when you are about to spend the day fitting shoes on children - the aim is not to scare the children ;)
Still the day went very very quickly as we were very very busy (what recession??) and infact had one of our busiest Saturday's ever!!!!!!
I have had a hot bath now accompanied by a very generous glass of Merlot and am feeling a whole lot better. Actually feeling even more so as Robin Hood has returned on the Beeb and Mr Armitage is looking very very scrummy (quite like the angst look!!).

Tomorrow I am letting Steve do the Rugby training while I catch up on a few things at home. I must also do a couple of Easter cards.
Here is the Mother's Day card to my Mum - nice and simple but I like it!!

How quiet is it???

Well today everyone went back to work/school and omg it is quiet around here!!!!
Had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. My boys thoroughly spoilt me and treated me, my mum and mil to lunch out. How fab is that???? I was really made to feel special and it meant the world to me :)
On Saturday I did a spot of crafting and I made this card for a friend using templates from this blog. I love the card and will be making some more - hope my friend likes it!

Mad Mad week!!!!

My goodness what a silly week it has been - mainly filled with runs to the doctors or casualty but things are now looking up and everyone is on the road to recovery so thats a relief for me!!!!!
On Tuesday after taking George to the docs I managed to get to craft club for the final hour and made this card which is much prettier in real life.
It was stamped with Versamark, sprinkled with stamp n bond powder, heated up and then glitter was sprinkled over it.
I have never used this Stamp n Bond before - needless to say I bought a tub LOL!!!
Yesterday I actually sat down and made an Easter card for a group competition - can't post it up here yet but I am really pleased with it and may make some more.
Today is a day off work wise for me so besides a couple of houseworkey bits to do I am going to divide my time between rugby and crafting.......nice!!!!!
Tomorrow is Mother's Day and I am spending it not just with my boys but with my mum and mil. We are all going out for lunch and then spending then afternoon together - can't wait!!

Bloomin' Heck!!!!!

Just when I thought my hospital visits were over!!!!!!

The boy had a rugby match this morning and he was doing okish until he took a tumble and a couple of lads ran over his hand with studded boots........ouch!!!!!

Now George doesn't cry unless it really really hurts (he really has a high pain threshold!) but he roared.......alot!

After we cleaned the muck off his hand he saw that he was sporting a very swollen hand and a lovely bruise was starting to emerge.

By the time we got home it was looking alot worse and after a check by our nurse neighbour I took a trip to the hospital to get him checked out. Luckily nothing is broken just very very bruised and painful and we were warned tomorrow it could be sore.

Mind you he got away lightly as while we were waiting for an xray an under 10 player was wheeled in on a trolley with his neck all strapped up. Dangerous sport this rugby!!!!!

I am pants!!!

It seems my blogging skills have been a little slack recently!!!

All of my boys have been poorly one way or another and so I have been running around sorting them out in various ways.

Anyway George and H have had a full week at school this week and yesterday was Red Nose Day and of course their schools got into the swing of the day.
H had to wear something red and George had fancy dress hence the duck outfit.
The boy does look very cute in his duck costume but I think that this will be its last outing as even with tights the loo was getting slightly obscene :)

No crafting has been done recently apart from a couple of quick cards. But tomorrow I am hoping to do a layout or two so may have something to show you then :)
