27th February......

And I haven't posted on here in ages again!!!

Well, life goes on with all it's ups and downs.......

We're still trying to re-mortgage but it takes forever.
Adrian's still waiting to hear back about compensation for his accident but it takes forever.
Megan is in BIG trouble at work which may or may not be resolved this week.

I've started an 'Art Journal'.........dunno why just wanted to and 'cos I have time on my hands at work to 'play' when no-one's looking.

Going to the Scrapaholics Roadshow this Saturday and doing a couple of classes so looking forward to that. Just ordered another American Crafts D ring album for my scrappin' 'cos they are just soooo convenient instead of 'faffing' about with screws or straps! Must stop buying though or 'im indoors will have a hissy fit.

Catching up.....

A lovely sunny Saturday, managed to do loads!

Had to catch up with housework and shopping after having worked full-time all week but only did the bear minimum (it's such a waste of time!).

Managed to do a bit of scrappin' as well and have done my D entry for my A-Z journal of me. D is for Dedicated.....

I used an old sepia photo downloaded from t'internet.

Also managed to do my badge for the Scrapajack retreat in May (but that's under wraps for now!)

Wednesday whimsy......

Working full-time all this week - boo hoo!

Gorgeous weather all week so far.........cold but bright and sunny.

Nothing much to report really, just wanted to update. A week today I'll be in London with Mum visiting the Terracotta Warriors!

Did this entry into my 'Overlooked' journal last night....

Sunny Sunday.....

What a glorious weekend it's been! Makes me happy all over.

It was the Swindon Scrapaholics crop yesterday morning which I went along to but didn't manage to get much done at thanks to that naughty Jakki from ScrapaJack! We had a good old chat about this, that and everything and managed to put the world to rights. Although I started this LO at the crop I had to finish it when I got home later.

Wasn't too sure about it at first but it's grown on me now. It's my entry for this month's house challenge on UKS.

This morning I spent a couple of hours out in the sunshine taking photos and then went to visit Ma & Pa who are both well and loving this better weather. This afternoon I'm cooking beef in Guinness for tea and watching the rugby. Then tonight it's one of my fav progs - Lark Rise to Camdleford and then it's the BAFTA awards with Jonathan Woss!

Here's a couple of photo's I took either Friday afternoon or this morning.

Shrove Tuesday.....

Thank goodness mine are old enough to do their own pancakes if the want them - I never did enjoy making pancackes (enjoy eating them though!)

Nothing much new to report really - same sh*t, different day!!

Here's my latest LO, set as a challenge by Willow on UKS - scrap your bad habits! Too many to mention I'm afraid!
No cinema trip this week - don't really fancy anything showing.

Here is my finished cross-stitch - all washed and pressed. I started this piece a year ago or more but went off cross-stitching and put it all up the attic. Just the passed couple of weeks I decided to get some of it back down and finished off this lovely design and I'm pleased I did.

It's a Long Dog Sampler design called St Georges.

We're all off out tonight for a meal for my birthday, don't know where though!

Birthday girl.....

Happy Birthday to me......

Had a lovely lunch with my DD at Los Gatos in Old Town (tapas bar). Lovely cards and a pressie from the 'girls' at work - Blade Runner. Gorgeous flowers and a book from DD too. DH had already given me money which I had spent at 'The Make It Show' a couple of weeks ago.

The next prompt in the 'Overlooked' blog is 'Collections'. So here are a couple of photos of my meagre collections - my Troll Beads and my 3 Momiji dolls.
