Cant believe I have left it so long to add to this again!

well actually yes I can really. May was a busy month with lots of running around and a trip to California thrown in! yes really we went there again this year. Had a fabulous time but it did mean that my birthday was spent flying back so it entailed 12 hours on a flight, hanging around Heathrow (terminal 5 - very nice!) for an hour or so and then a 2 hour drive back home but all in all it was ok! Managed to get to our first evening crop on the Saturday too although I wasnt good for much and just sat there staring really!

June was a hectic month as we had the school summer fayre so lots of organisation and running around going on there - we had a fabulous day in the end and our Pirates and Princesses theme was well received - we managed to raise a whopping £1300 which considering how much we spent on new stalls etc. was amazing - thanks to everyone who came along and supported us.

And just dont ask me where July went - have no idea about that at all! Did manage to squeeze in some scrapping though and will upload the pictures later.

Solihull Craft Club

Had a lovely crop today – I spent hours completing just one layout but then managed to finish off 3 that were already half done and also teach the class for My Stars (piccy below) so all in all quite a productive day for me. It was also nice to hear the Villa score of 5-1 as I knew the mood at home would be a happy one too!

My Soccer Mad Son

What a fab day we all had today – Big One was invited, along with his football club, to the Aston Villa Training Ground to play a match against their Year 2 teams and have some coaching. He played very well and I was so proud when his coach came over to tell him so after the game! He also had some coaching by the Aston Villa coaches themselves – something I don’t think you can really put a price on!

Well not much is happening today - Big one has gone out with Daddy to look at some cars so I am watching Little One whilst cooking the dinner and uploading all of my latest layouts to my website. I am still not sure how to do slideshows on here without sending all of my personal information here there and everywhere so these few will have to suffice for now. Blast Off needs finishing - need to put a date on it somewhere on the top rhs but not quite sure what to do yet - if you have any ideas please let me know! My Stars is for a class I am running at my crop next Sunday.

I've been spotted!

I was on the telly again today! whoo hooo how exciting! Me and the big one got picked out of a long line of people queuing up for tickets on the Severn Valley Railway - I hadnt got the heart to tell them that I had actually won my tickets in a raffle and was just queuing up to verify them! Anyway it was all very exciting and we were on Central News - Oliver however was most put out and is going to be very cross if any of his friends saw him! I however was most excited so please let me know if you saw us!! Will try and get it on YouTube soon!

Well today I was hoping to take myself off to a crop - havent been to one since September last year but instead had to spend the morning in casualty with the little one. Apparently him and big one had a ding dong yesterday morning - according to one he was kicked and according to the other he accidently trod on the other one - your guess is as good as mine! anyway all is well - little one still cant walk very well and is limping along and falling over quite often but there are no fratures and his hips are fine which is good. Why when everyone tells you that parenting is hard you never understand till you are in the thick of it?? Anyway big one has bought little one a nice little train to say "sorry" and all is well. Till tomorrow.

Well today my baby started school! bless him he looked so cute and grown up in his little school jumper and went running into his new classroom without a tear in his eye or a backward glance at me! I was relieved too - he needs more interaction and I got a coffee morning!!

Hopefully I will now get more time to fill up my blog - oh and scrap of course! you never know I might start working again too! - the world is my oyster - at least for the next four weeks!
