It keeps raining!!!

On and off yesterday it rained :(
Not good when you have lots of orders to deliver or if you are my hubby hoping to see Northamptonshire Steelbacks play Hampshire Hawks for a place in the 20 20 semi finals.
Both got done (thankfully) and hubs was a happy bunny yesterday. As i have the finals day off on the 15th August I am very happy too. Looks like it will be a cricket bonanza planned for that day :)
Still loving the fact that the boys are off school at the mo. Although over the last few days they have been getting to each other a little. That might be due to a little cabin fever too as due to the weather we have not been outside as much as we would like.
Anyway today needs must and a supermarket trip is on the cards. I have managed to bribe the boys with a trip to the cinema afterwards so heres hoping they behave ;)
Pic of the day is a card made from some free magazine papers. Managed to also put together some Christmas cards yesterday - I know its a little sick but I am on a big organise thing at the mo. I just want to get them started and use a box of Christmas stash which has been hanging around for a couple of years. I am dying to buy new stash but I am being good (well trying to be!!!) xxxx

Wasn't sure what title to put tonight so left it blank :)

Been to work this afternoon - thats it until Saturday....yippeee!!!

Am still on a mission with the cards. This is one i have made for our fishing mad next door neighbour. It also meant I could use some of the dufex images which i seem to have alot of!

Really enjoying crafting at the mo and am hoping to restart some scrapbooking over the hols.

Tomorrow is Avon day and then I need to get Harry to a cricket match tomorrow night.......thats if it doesn't rain! xxxx

Just wanted to share this with you....

Sooooo excited about this!!! xxxx

Am lovin' the hols

I love the summer hols. No routine and not rushing here there and everywhere (well apart from when I am at work!)
I noticed on Saturday at work how many parents were moaning already about the time off and that was after the first week.
Ok so yes my two did start bouncing off each other yesterday afternoon but come on its the hols!!!!!!
Anyway I managed to get a couple more cards done yesterday.
This one was extremely quick and to be honest looks much better in RL than on this crappy picture!
Am still sticking to my resolution of trying to use existing stash up - good girl me!!!!
Anyway have plans for today. First off is a walk into town with the boys to the library and then onwards to the shoe shop for school shoes. Yes even on my days off I still go in!!!! xxxx

I have been trying to find time for a bit of crafting here and there. Still trying to use old stash and so far so good!!!!!!

Here is a card for Steve from one of the boys for his birthday in a couple of weeks.

'Oh we do like to be beside the seaside'

We packed our bucket and spades yesterday together with a picnic and two excited chaps and we drove to Heacham.

We had a fabby time chilling and just enjoying being together doing stuff.

All three boys went rockpooling and then made two massive sandcastles which really were works of art. Steve and Harry buried George because well he wanted them too!!!

Finally late afternoon we drove down the road to Hunstanton and enjoyed fish and chips by the sea.

What a lovely day xxxxx

Holy Moly Its Thursday!!!

Already!!!! I can't quite believe the first week has nearly gone. :(
Off to spend quality time with these two monkeys today at the seaside. They have lots of pent up energy which needs getting rid off!!!
Made 4 cards yesterday - yipeee!
Also had work in the afternoon which was kind of busy - people buying school shoes already!!
Right must go and find the bucket and spades xxxx

I am getting there!!

I am in an organisational frenzy!!!!!
All paperwork is up to date, I have sorted mine and the boys wardrobes out (how can I have about 4 different sizes in mine?!) and I am making cards for events in September!!!!!
Here is our card to George whose birthday is at the end of August - I do like the Jolly Nation decoupage and have used it several times.
Now as for my using stash up? Wellllll that has been sort of successful but I must admit I did go to Colemans on Saturday and spent some money. I did not buy paper though...honest!!!!!
This afternoon I am in work for a few hours and then tonight I have a girly night in with some friends which I am really looking forward to. Think I have been stuck with boys only for a bit too long and so need female company!!!!!
Tomorrow we are (hopefully) off to the seaside to get some fresh air. Will take camera and post some pics tomorrow night xxxxx

Am back ......again!!!

Well the summer hols are almost upon us....well they will be at 3pm this afternoon!!
This year the boys have 7 weeks off which I am looking forward to as last year they had a short holiday in comparison.

The last couple of weeks have seen the Feary family living in a house of sickness and general yuckiness. Even I succumbed last Friday and went to the docs to be told that yes indeedy I was proper poorly with chest infection and sinusitus. I promptly went to bed afterwards (which I never ever do!!) and seemed to stay there all weekend.
We all seem to be coming out of the other side now and hopefully we will be 100% recovered by next week.

Over the last few days I have got back into the swing of things and realised, like I do every so often that I seem to run around so much after everyone else but make little time for me. This may explain my crabbiness lately so I have made an effort to create and enjoy.

I am also on a mission to use up my stash.....I have sooooooo much and it is ridiculous that it doesn't get used. So I am using it!!!!

I did some stamping yesterday and created this card which I lubs....alot!!! May do some more colouring in today as it is sooo relaxing.

Anyway school run is beckoning along with housework - have a good day everyone!!! xxx
