This week was SO busy, apart from work everyday, i have been out every night except Tuesday!

Monday i went back to school to a drugs talk. I really was quite dim and knew very little about what drugs are av. to school children. I know a little more now :( So thankful that I didn't see anything like that when I was at school. I thought that cigarettes and alcohol was bad enough!!

Weds Dex and I went out for out weekly meal and shop which was great. The children were playing up when the carer arrived this week...she looked quite shocked, at least she understands why we need her now LOL

Thursday I popped to Harleston To meet Gail ( ephemera from UKS ) she is lovely :) and i even enjoyed the drive out.

Friday I went to Duxford with 45 15 yr olds. It was a lovely day but we had a lot of work to do ( worksheets) My group were really well behaved. I took loads of photos and Dex can identify ALL the planes!!

In the evening Dex decided that it would be nice for us all go out for tea....he always forgets that last time! The children really didn't want to go, they don't like spending time with each other and its constant fighting. I rang round my sisters but no one else wanted to come with us either LOL ( very sensible!!) We ended up going to Mac Donald's and eating it in the car. JOY!! Everyone was happy to get home.

Today was nice, I went to the Wyverstone crop and spent the day chatting shopping and a tiny bit of scrapping.

Quiet Weekend

A visit from Nets and Shortie :) Nets says that she doesn't look good in any photos usual I prove her wrong !! LOL

Busy week again at school but exams are coming to an end ( thank goodness)

I went out with some of the staff on Thurs to see South Pacific .......It was great and the woman who sang "Happy Talk" was brill. It reminded me of mum...watching all those old black and white films on a Sat afternoon :)

Took my music off the blog ...doesn't mean I have gone off him at all..just aware that some people don't like music blaring at them while reading. I am sure he'll be back in the future for the odd appearance. :)

Well I was going to say its been a quiet weekend....

....but it never is here!!! LOL We popped out for a little while today but not before the whole lot of them ( incl Dex) had temper tantrums. JOY.
I am daft coz ( being an optimist) I thought that when the children got older , they would be better behaved. But no ...they just know more swear words to call each other!! ( I do have one to explain the meaning of to Megan later)

Anyway, we only went to the Range (they spent more than me) and Mac Donald's ( i have indigestion!). Dan couldn't cope with eating out , so we stayed in the car.

I made a card last night. A late anniversary card for my sis :( HOW could i forget?! It was a scrap lift from Monica at ScrapaGoGo using bits left over from previous kits.
Have a great week.

I'm back

With photos of Megs i said subtle.

Half term is over

On the whole it was quite wet :(

Dex is back from Wales ( wasn't the BEST time he'd had there) He enjoyed the Rugby match.

I spent a lovely day at the Wyverston crop yesterday but only managed one LO..came back with loads of ideas and a LONG shopping list ! LOL

Finally gave in a streaked Megs hair today. I am quite please as there are just a few ( enough to please her) and subtle enough for me :)

I would be looking forward to school tomorrow if we weren't in the middle of the exams and the timetable is a mess.
The first LO is the one i did at Wyverstone and i have used the new doodlebug flock in red on the flowers and some white on the doodles.
The second is a UKS weekly challenge and the photos are a bit dark :(
