Did I or Didn't I...

Yes I did manage to do lots of crafty stuff last weekend, but I mainly consisted of colouring digi stamps.  I have made Kev's birthday card too, but I can't find the cable thingy to download the pics to my laptop.  I'll have a good look over the next few days, cos I am off work from Thursday at 12:00 until Monday at 10:30.  Yayyy.

Chrissie gave me a gorgeous piccy of Jamie last night, and  I am going to get her to down load all her photo's onto my laptop too, so I can start a scrapbook of him.

Tonight I am going out with the girls from work.  We are  going to the Toby Carvery for a meal (we are all doing Slimming World so this is the best choice for us).  Then we are going to the cinema to watch The Vow - a chick flick that will make us all cry. It is the first time I have been out in ages so looking forward to it, with a bit of trepidation.  I am sure it is going to be fun.

T G I Friday

Thank goodness the weekend is nearly upon us.  It has been a long week, with my main positive being I lost 4lbs at Slimming World.  One more 1lb will make a stone since Christmas.  I have 2 colleagues from work, Sharon and Amanda  who are doing this with me and I am finding them a great support, as well as healty competition.  If everything goes to plan we should all get our 1 stone award on Tuesday.

Another Day

wishing that weekend was here.  I am working 10:30 - 8:00 shifts this week, but I need to be in work before 9:00am to get a parking space (or I have to park on the public carpark for £5.00).  That makes for a really long day or an expensive week. And I really am getting the bug to start crafting again.
Tonight is "weigh in" night at Slimming World - I have been really good this week and am hoping for a reasonable loss after only 1/2 a pound last week.  At least Kev knows not to buy me any chocolates and the Olive Tree shrub that I casually remarked would last longer than flowers is only on sale from Thursday.  He did get me a lovely card though.

Getting my mojo back

Looking through some of my favourite blogs is helping me get my mojo back.  I have already missed making cards for my Dad's 80th (yesterday), Rob's 40th tomorrow, and Valentines day tomorrow. Its the first time in years that I have bought cards.
I have Billy, my step grandson's 14th coming up, a dear friend is going to reach 70 shortly and Kev, my husbands birthday is in March, so I had better get cracking.

Back to me

Wow it has been a long time since I have been on here.  Such a lot has happened .  I finished my councilling and am in a better place mentally, but I think the thing that helped me most is Christine's pregnancy with the safe arrival of my gorgeous grandson Jamie.  Sorry I can't share a photo with you, but Christine does not want his photo's published on the internet and I have to adhere to her wishes. He was born on 26th  November 2011, by emergency C-Section and both mother and son are now very well.
