Back again!

Urgh I did have flu and it was horrid. I had no energy all weekend and just felt bleurgh. Infact I still feel a little under the weather but loads better than last week.

This week has been a little stressful hence no posts. I think if I had posted it would've been full of my moans about mum's health, my health, living in a house with three boys and just generally feeling unhappy with life in general. So here I am having pondered life etc for the last few days - weighing up good and bad - and now deciding that I am the only person who can change things for myself and that the things I can't change? Well they need to be dealt with head on or let someone else deal with them.
Out of all of this pondering I have realised that I really don't spend enough time on me. I run around so so much (as most Mums do) juggling with work, home, children, school and family that I have lost sight of what I need to retain my sanity or what little remains.
Now don't get me wrong I am not feeling feeling sorry for myself and I love my boys so so much, however lately I am feeling the need to be recognised as someone more than just a mum and wife.
I also need to be creating more. I am so happy when left to just play and make things and sadly I have not been sat in my little room playing as much as I would like to.

So things have got to change and they will/are.
I am loosing weight - hurrah!
I will find a new job this year
Scrapbooking supplies will be used
My mum will get on the transplant list
My boys will realise that I am a person and not a maid
Harry will finally get the official Aspergers diagnosis and some help
I will be forty and fabulous!

Urgh feeling unwell

Have had one of those weeks this week and typically it's been while the boys have been on half term.
For about 2 weeks now I have been fighting something off but Sunday it hit big time :-(
I managed to get to work in monday and tuesday to do my morning shifts but in Tuesday afternoon I went straight to bed.
I was supposed to be going to see my mum and dad yesterday but again I felt too unwell to go. Infact I was nodding off now and again.
Today I do feel better but I have no energy at all. It certainly wasn't flu as I have had that before and I didn't feel that bad but urgh I feel like I have lead boots on.

Anyway I have done no stitching at all so far this weeky but am planning to do some this afternoon infront of the tv - bliss!

As its valentines day I thought it would be nice to show you the card I made for hubs - stitched obviously!!!! Xxxx

Poor George is still suffering with his head. Yesterday he managed an hour at school and this morning I took him to the docs as he was still suffering from dizziness.
After a very thorough check we were told he needs rest and time. Mind you he has started to feel much better tonight so fingers crossed.

Am stitching an Easter card from The World of Cross Stitch at the mo and hoping to get it finished in the next few days.
I actually had an order from a friend today for one of the sausage dog cards. I was really chuffed and need to get it sorted for Mothers Day. The big question is how much to charge?

Pic below is the other Mothers Day design I finished at the weekend. It's a really bright pattern so will really cheer up a Mother's Day. X

So sorry!

It's been a few days since I last posted so thought I should pull my finger out and get sorted.
George has been off school today with concussion. He had a little bump at rugby training yesterday but woke up feeling dreadful this morning so 8am this morning we were sat in a&e.
We didn't have a long wait and were seen by 2 nurses and a doctor fairly quickly. Infact we were back home by about 9.30!

Harry is doing ok at school etc. rehearsals for Oliver are going well and he is enjoying being back in the swing of performing and rehearsing. Am feeling frustrated at getting referrals sorted for his Aspergers diagnosis and for something else of a more personal nature. I am going to wait until Friday and then will start chasing etc.

Steve is really enjoying his mosaic work and over the weekend he worked on a mirror. It looks amazing and will look even better once its grouted. As soon as it is I will post a pic.
He is looking at maybe selling some of his pieces and I honestly think they are good enough!

And me? Well I haven't done loads if stitching as I have been quite busy but I did finish two pieces over the weekend for Mother's Day - one of which is shown below.
Some fab news and which I still can't believe is that my mum and dad are buying a new iPad for me for my birthday. I am so excited!!!!!!
