I Dream Of Blog Posts

but have been struggling to find time to write them
Life has got back to it’s borderline ready-to-overwhelm-me busy self
The girls have started swim lessons again
Poor Lucy screamed
So her and Elizabeth are having a private lesson next week and hoping that helps her out
The others did well and loved being back in the pool
This morning was my first real day of being home alone
Dave at work and the girls at school
I spent the morning helping to get the school canteen ready for tomorrow, the first canteen day
Got home and wasn’t home long before the phone rang
Elizabeth had an earache and I had to go pick her up
Don’t know if it was a ‘real’ earache or not because she had seen me leaving school, after canteen
She didn’t seem to upset when we got home either
We go to see the specialist next week, to check her grommets, so I will be asking about that one :)
I finished off these 2 pages today
Have been working on them, on and off, since yesterday


used pieces from Studio Calico kits, old and new,


some Such Sweet Tierney buttons


some washi tape and a new stamp from Kikki-k 


This one is for the new challenge at Scrapping the Music


took this photo Valentines day night
Dave was kind enough to indulge me,lol, with some photos
this one was the best, because we I kept laughing and mucking about
and I think it is perfect :) :)


Used bits from Studio Calico’s Baker’s Dozen kit and Tea Cakes Addon kit


I also used a Making Memories Vintage Findings kit, the mini travel one
Also the ‘2’ is a sticky note from Kikki-k


Gee I love ‘im!
sigh, see ya :)

Pin It Now!
