I was really freezing earlier this afternoon, So cold that my bones were hurting in my fingers, it feels like snow out there this afternoon.

I had to pop into town today and it was throwing it down, I sooo hate the rain and once i had got a parking space the rain stop, I was like thank god for that, it stopped long enough for me to get a ticket place in said car and cross the road!!!!!! didnt even get undercover:( was not impressed!!!!.

Have had a very boring day today nothings got done except i cleaned out the kids fish tank at my mums, It has pink water!!!!! why pink water you ask??? thats the very question i asked the man in the fish shop the other week when i went in and asked him to test the water!!!! and even he didnt know :(, so i took out at least half of the water and replaced with new and see how that goes.

I have made a birthday card the other day for a 7 year old she loves hannah montanna, i asked a good friend of mine (from celtic crafters) babs to write me 3 verse for this little girl as i have to make 3 cards for her ,

Heres the first card that i made just 2 more to go, i have scanned this card in and i must say that it hasnt done it any justice!!!!

I have finally found my camera charger WOO HOO so my camera is charging and i will be able to take proper pics and hopefully they will look better than what i've showed you so far!!!.

Well i dont have anything ele to say except i am meant to be making mother in laws birthday card and one for a friend in crafty friends but havent got my mojo it seems to have disapeared am hoping it comes back real soon as have lots of cards to make.

Guess what i did today????????

I went and got meself a job!!!!!!!! i know i know i can hear you all saying about bloody time too!!!!!!!.

I was sooo scared had butterflies in my tummy felt like i was gonna be sick wanted to run away and hide, I was soo confident about the job right upto the point of the interview!!!
Anyway answered all the questions they were firing at me and was hoping they were the right answers, was in there well over an hour and then it was over and i felt more relaxed and while i was having some documents photocopied the lad who was in there helping with the interview said see it wasnt that bad we'll prob go away and talk about you now!!!lol and i replied well i hope it will be all good im sure it will be he said it was a good interview pheww, they then said they would be in contact in a week to let me know and blow me if she didnt ring within the hour telling i was in!!!!!!!! so now just have to wait for the refs to come back and the crb and pova forms and then i can start!!!!!

Got to go in tomorrow and fill out some more forms and OMG its full time 37.5 a week not worked full time since before Jojo was born, I will be doing 2 full days(8am-9pm) and 2 five and a half hour(ish) shifts and over time if wanted god im gonna be soooo knackered but at least we'll be able to pay the rent lol.

Paul had a good 40th birthday got some nice pressies from me and kids and my mum and dad.

Thank god its the week-end!!!!!!

What a week I've had what with forgetting things and Billy's nosebleeds, I've made no cards :(had to give a brought one for Paul's cousin yesterday and have to makes Paul's card for Monday (big 40) and 2 others for next week,
But i did get myself a bargain for the craft shop yesterday ;) a set of clear stamps from Personal impressions 2 girls and 1 boy (he's fishing) and they were only £4.99 not very often that happens lol they are fairly deep clear stamps so will try and get a play with them today!!!.


Billy was poorly during the night :( he had a real high temp even after medication and he was complaining his tummy hurt and he wanted me to call the doc, so he must have felt pants(not even the threat of having to go to the hossie didnt stop him), spoke to the doc and he said that he may have a water infection and to keep an eye on him during the night and if he got worse to call back, But this morning he awoke right as bloody rain typical !!!! god job i didn't insist on they come out lol.

Nothing much planned for today except a pile of washing that needs doing cos i havent been arsed to do it before now and they all are complaining of having no clothes!!!!!:(.

Paul took the car to work this morning as he said it was dangerous yesterday on his motorbike nearly came off 4 times, he has said he has got some hopefully fab pics of the fields all covered in white so when he's home i'll attempt to upload them to the comp and show you all.

I manged yesterday to change my mobile phone tariff WOOHOO I am now getting 300 free texts all i have to is remember to put a tenner on a month and if i put on £30 a month i get unlimited texts dout i'll even use the 300 texts let alone the 30 quid a month on the phone!!!!!!.
So if you wanna enjoy the benefits of my texts you can!!!! but need ya number, and i promise i will be waffling on them just as much as on here!!!! LOL

Have fun and talk again later once i have uploaded paul's pics

My first blog award!!! from sue (hammersue1),
I've not had an award yet!!!well till now that is!!!LOL
It comes with" i can give to 7 other people" So will have to have
a ponder on this one for while!!!

What a nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never never ever will i do that again!!!!! buy paul a new phone!!!!!!!!!lol

It comes with a disc so you can transfer the pics/addressbk/txts/everything from phone to comp, thought to myself hmmm i'll do that tonight i WONT TAKE LONG!!!! 4 1/2 BLOODY HOURS LATER...... I have finally finished installing the damm disc and updated the updates over 300 updates needed i was pulling me hair out 11.59 last night the last photo had transfered.... so went to bed very tired stressed but happy that i had not let it get the better of me lol.

So i have just edited yesterdays post to show you the snowy pics sorry the 1st 2 pics are dark but it was still dark out there!!!!!lol, The others arnt that great either as they are from my phone which is more pants than pants themselves!!!! but they show you the kids having fun!!!!!.

I seem to have lost my brain between the start of dec till now if you find it on your travels then pls send back asap!!!

I got billy a doc appointment today at 4-30 cos he's having huge nosebleeds for no reason which is good and then i went into town this morning to get 2 things!!!! washing powder and dishwasher tablets came home with shopping from the craft shop and dishwasher tabs and no washing powder :( and i have a mountain of washing so will have to stop off at the shop when on school run, and am having Icelands shopping between 3-5pm tonight!!! (at least i didnt forget the kids this time rofl thats another story!!!!!)
Cool then realised that they would prob deliver while doing school run so called a friend she's staying here while i do the run and pick her kids up aswell!!!

WHATS THE PROBLEM THEN???? i hear you say????

I FORGOT BILLY HAD DOC APPOINTMENT :( AT 4-30PM so i have called me mum and asked her to come and wait while i take bill unless they deliver before then, How dangerous would i be if i had a brain!!!!!!!!!
I think i should just go back to bed and try again!!!! hopefully i wont forget to cook tea.

right i had better get doing my domestic goddess routine before my friend gets here and realises that we live in a hell hole lol

Is great!!!!!!!

I have come across some fab blogs since i've been welcomed into blog-land, some of the storys i've read are out of this world!!!!!

On some of them they have card and scrapbooking layouts which is way cool, this has inspired me to go hunting further and deeper on the WWW, before i never went anywhere except hotmail and e-bay lol, NOT NO MORE!!!!!! i have found a fabulious site for page layouts which i have given in an earlier post.

Today i came across this site and she has lots of art work to buy and download and of course some FREEBIES


Go and have a look and see for yourself and if you buy anything ITS NOT MY FAULT!!!!!! LOL. Will have to look at putting a link at the side so everyone can go straight to her site as all traffic helps.

will be back later once i have found some more great sites.

Snow glorious snow.....

Awoke this morning to find we have snow!!!!! YEEPEEEEEEEE........................

I've not seen the kids move so quick as they did this morning...... up dressed and was eating their brekkie before 8 am and was playing out by 8.......

Will it be the same tomorrow?????????? dout it lol cos its back to school.

The kids have gone back out to play again and it is snowing again!!!! dont think it will lay thou cos it has warmed up slightly and the paths have become wet!!!! i could be proved wrong, if it does it will become very icy and slippery.

Have taken pics of the snow this morning so will add them later once pauls home as they are on his phone and couldn't work out how to e-mail them over at silly o'clock this morning. So watch this space.

Nothing planned this morning to cold to go out may get out the craft stuff once i've been a domestic goddess bit lol

Back later to you update you all

New Year New Times........

  • Happy New Year everyone.
  • I would like to thank everyone for coming and seeing me in my new blog. Hopefully this coming year you will all be able to see what i'm upto with my cards and life in general.

  • The kids need to get back to school they are slowly driving themselves and me mad!!!!!!
  • Billy got a nice pair of pj's for crimbo they were nemo ones light blue bottoms and the top was dark blue(so i thought!!!!) with light blue arms and he loved them, they got there first wash yesterday put them in with the coloureds and everything came out purpley pink'ish colour!!!!!!!!!
  • Went throu the wet washing 3 times in case that "red sock/top" sneaked in while my back was turned alas no!!!! BILLYS HEART BROKEN:(:(:(
  • So last night in my kitchen it was like a chinese laundry i was boiling the bottom on the gas ring and yes got most of the PINK out!!!!woohoo
  • This morning started on the top arms in boiling water the pink started to come out just like the bottoms BRILLIANT!!!, then came the purple colour OPPS so it was the pj's themselves that coloured themselves :(:( i put the whole top in the boiling water and then put in the bottoms and cooked them for a while so now the bottoms are looking more purpley than pink!!!
  • I have convinced billy(hopefully) that they are purple not pink!!!!, he was saying to throw them away cos he didn't like them now more:(:(
  • I have tried to do a sig to put at the end of each post with no much luck :( so gave up on that idea and went onto photobucket and found one!!!!! great i said wow cool!!! tried in in the post below and it just comes up like a picture so that hasnt work!!!!!!!:(:(:(:(
