Hello Everyone.

I hope you are all keeping well and busy with your creations!  

Sorry I have not been around much, but I have a few deadlines that need to be met, and unfortunately blogging is not one of them at the moment!

I am hoping to be back sometime next week, with lots of bits and pieces that I haven't quite got around to showing you yet!

For now, I'll leave you with these little snippets........


Until next time.....

Surprise Holiday!

Welcome Back!

Well, you may recall from this post that I mentioned that we were going on a Special Holiday......

Well, we went here.......

Yip...... Disneyland Paris! 

M and I were very proud of ourselves, as we managed to keep it to ourselves until we had to take the passports and tickets out at Euro star at St. Pancras and then Bean and Peanut went crazy!!  They were besides themselves with excitement!!!!

We went for four nights, five days, and I can say, by the end, I was more than ready to come home!!!!  We walked 10 miles each day, making sure we saw as much as we could and did as much as we could, and having been there before, when Bean was 6 and Peanut was 9 months old, we were a bit apprehensive about Peanut, especially as we knew how much walking there was....  She coped very well, as very last minute, I bought both Bean and Peanut a pair of Heely's. (Not these exact ones and I got them on sale!) We had bought Bean a pair when she was 7 and she knew how to use them, so we only had to get Peanut to use them, which she got the hang of after a day!

By the end of the holiday, I did wish I had bought myself a pair!  We had lunch at Cafe Mickey and met the characters, we went on lots of rides and did everything we wanted to do and more! It really was fantastic!!!

I'll leave you with a few of our favourite pictures from the fantillusion and fireworks.

Until next time.

Normality Returns!

Hello Everyone and welcome back!

It was a bit of a hectic week last week, with both Bean and Peanut returning to school.  I suddenly seemed to have accumulated piles of washing and ironing, and Monday consisted of labeling all new school clothing up, and making sure they both had everything they needed! 

The washing, tumbling and ironing seemed to be never ending! There were mountains of the stuff, which I couldn't really figure out, as apart from Saturday and Sunday, I wash, tumble and iron every day!

I finally managed to get on top of it all by Wednesday evening..... but then..... I had to spend the rest of the week doing invoicing and accounts for M!

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but M has a consultancy business, with a few people working with him, and because I did Human Resources and Accounting in a previous life, he asked me to look after the office and accounts side of his business, which I am happy to do, as I am able to do it in between the important stuff like being creative! Hehehe x. 

So creating wise, I did very little last week, but hey ho, that is how it has to be sometimes.

Well, I won't bore you anymore, I'm disappearing for now, as I have hundreds of photo's to sort through and select for various updates for you all! So keep your eye's peeled!

Until later!

The Return!

Helloooooo Everyone!!!!  

It feels like years since I was last on here!! 

Well strictly speaking it is!!!!!  

We have had a really busy 6 week school holiday break, and both Bean and Peanut are extremely excited to be returning to school this week!!

Whilst I have been away, I notice that a few more people are following me!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I hope I don't bore you too much and that you enjoy my little world of rantings and what knots!

I should hopefully be back to normality by the end of the week, where I can update you on what's been happening, including an update on the mystery holiday that we went on!!

For now, I'll leave you with a little sneak peak of some hooky that I have been doing..... well, part of it :-).

Enjoy! and I'll be back soon with some updates!
