Fab weekend!

On Friday we went to Millie's bday party, which was fab!

Then on Saturday we went to my best mate Bex's house. Had a really good time. At one point the boys were out in the garden and we were sat playing on the scalextrix lol!!

Here's some upto date piccies:

The dog is Meg aka Meggie Meg - and I am sooooooooo going to do a scrapbook page about her. The title will be 'Princess' cos she so is a little princess!

Then today I went to the Papercrafts show at Harrogate. All on my own, with pocket money! Had a wonderful time and bought a couple of things.................

And saw Tracie and Jacob, who is looking gorgeous - even through the snot!! *edit - just to clarify Jake had the snot not Tracie lol*

Then we went to two birthday parties this afternoon!!

Ollie was so tired he actually asked to go to bed!!

So then I finished my cbc cj - sorry even more photos!!

Night out!

Ollie had a night over at grandma's last Saturday! First time ever - everyone seemed to survive ok, so hopefully it may happen again lol!

Went to Margaret's to help with the scrapbook..... agreed it was too emotional to do the baby photos so soon so she is going to do some older ones first. I really enojoyed myself (if that doesn't sound too silly!) nice to sit and just talk about stuff.

Daddy is decorating Ollie's room, from a baby's nursery to a proper boys room. He chose an underwater theme. Can't wait to see it, should be finished soon!

Went to school today to make Mother's Day cards with the kids. Fab!

Nothing much else to report - except the Big One is priority in our house at the moment! Can't wait to scrap this one!

CJ's everywhere!

I've got soooooooooo many cj's to do - it's fab!!

I'm getting my first ever one back in the next few days and I can't wait! I've got two UKS ones on my desk - one done one to do. And I've signed up for the next one on CBC - great team and fab subjects. My subject for this is 'My Song' - you know the one that always gets you singing, dancing, driving that bit faster.........well I mentioned it today at work which sparked an hour conversation about fantastic music! They may not understand me but they are liking the subjects (except the Buffy one where they just think I am bonkers!).

Don't know if you remember my post for Iain, well his mum has asked me to help her make a scrapbook of his life for his brother. Am quite choked about it actually - never done one quite so emotional, but am happy to help where I can.

Well that's it for now - I'll try not to sign up to do any more cj's (but I can't promise!)

I do not like green eggs and ham.....

Well me and Ollie went to see Suessical today. To put this into context since my boy was one years old, we have had to read a Dr Suess story at bedtime (anyone who is not sure what this means, it is the most annoying, tongue twisting, meaningless literature ever - which I have to admit, I love too!). So when Claire asked if we wanted tickets, I had to say yes!!

This is the first time he has seen a stage show so I wasn't sure if he would like it. In fact I thought we would be there for 10 mins. and we'd have to leave.........

HE LOVED IT!! He clapped and laughed and giggled all the way through! I spent more time watching him rather than the show!!

The kid who was the Cat in the Hat was awesome and the rest were very talented too.

What a brilliant experience, and he had it with me! woo hoo!

Getting the beads out!

Well I have had a good week, book day was ok Ollie was a dragon in the end (thanks to Woolworths!). Made a big decision on where I want to go workwise, so am applying for some bits and pieces - will let you know as and when something happens!!

But this week I have also had two beady orders. One was for a Mother's Day pressie from an angel on cbc - looking forward to making it tbh as I am doing delicate, which I don't usually do lol!

AND a very good crafty friend is getting married (finally ;o)) and she has asked me to do tiaras and beadies - which once I stopped freaking out about, has got me all excited about beads again! I am so pleased she is getting married and honoured she would ask me to make her things for her and her bridesmaids. And I will get to see it on the day too - woo hoo!!

So today I sat with my big box of beads on my living room floor and had a rumage (ain't rumagging fun?!). TBH they haven't been moved into my room properly cos I have been doing paper crafts - but the shelves are going up tomorrow (dh permitting) and then beads here I come - so prepare to be shown quite a few tiaras as I may get slightly stressed about it!!
