Too Busy

To Scrap! :(
Lots going on at work, exams, courses, day trips. Governor meetings at Dans school one each Wed for he next three weeks ( takes me over an hour just to get there )
Meg has been off school all week with a "tummy ache" hummmmmmmm. She was supposed to go to France for the day on Friday but i think she chickened out ...wouldn't mind if it wasn't for 1. The cost , doubt we shall see that again. and 2, all the organisation ( because of her diabetes and need for injections ) ohh well. Its a new week LOL.
Got up early this morn to make a couple of Fathers day cards. I will pinch Dex's off him later and scan it in. I used some of the "Elsie" range of papers.
Not sure what the plan is today..whatever Dex wants. I do need to do some photocopying.where can i do THAT on a Sunday!!! And i have a little bit of homework ( for tomorrow ..eeek) to do.
Off to Debden next weekend with Nets to meet some very MAD scrappers. Really excited now though i DO need to get a bit organised. And i still have to make a Tiara (?!) LOL
Ohh almost forgot...thought i'd let Darren Have a rest ( until his new album is out) and LOVE Michael Buble at the mo. His is the only version of "Me and Mrs Jones" I'll tolerate LOL ..That flipping song haunts me !!
Hope you have a great week ( whoever reads this ) and Hope he sun shines all week.

...................It has been a week since I last blogged ;)
Just been really busy at work. This week and next week loads of exams to cover at school ( and trips out ) So it has been madness really, hardly time to go to the loo let alone actually sit down and eat lunch. The great thing is I have no homework from my course this week as I am all caught up :)
Behavioural course to go on next week ( no Steph, NOT for my bad behaviour!) Looking forward to that as it is in a really posh hotel with lunch included :) AND it is free.
We had a new carer start this week ( so we can go out on a thurs night) , think they wore the last one out! It had been a few weeks since anyone had been, so it was looovley to go out to tea and get the shopping on Thursday, I had forgotten how nice to eat without having to get up or sort out a row LOL!
No scrapping done this week but, I have some inchies to do and the most Gorgeous kit from ScrapaGoGo to play with tomorrow. Dex has said he will take them to see Pirates..did I want to go?? I would love to see Johnny but i'll wait for the DVD and scrap instead :)
Finally went to the doc's about my face ( again no comments Steph!). I have Acne Rosasea. I remember learning all about it hundreds of years ago as a beauty therapist and feeling sorry for the poor old dears who suffered. Anyway he told me to go easy on the make up ( I told him that hell will freeze over before I stop wearing the camouflage stuff at school...I get enough stick from the kids as it is!! mostly for being short LOL) He gave me some antibiotics and a soap substitute.I DID say that if the skin on my face gets thicker or my nose change shape ( can happen in bad cases ) he is to book me in for surgery immediately!
Meg is off to France for he day on Friday, I have to go into her school in my lunch time to show them how to draw up an injection, leave my phone turned on all day ( at work) just incase. Drop her off at 5.30am and pick her up just before midnight, ohh and they can't find the medical insurance card that I sent in in Feb, could i get another ??? JOY!!

God i am tired!!

Some days do that don't they. Got up early (for me) to do my NVQ homework and finally finished a little while ago. BIL has finished in the kitchen for now. I still need to find a reasonably cheap splash back and some shelves and then of course paint it!
At least the weather has been glorious today. All the children have been out most of the day ( Megan is of course grounded already !)
Dex has been spoiling for an argument all day ( he does this every so often ) its wearing but i won't give in and join in.
I have done some scrapping this week. Used the great NFA charity kit from ScrapaGoGo and have loads left to do more. The flowers are paintshop pro brushes as i mirrored the fab stamp ( included in the kit) and although it looks fine IRL, is skwiffy when scanned in .
