Missing crafting and blogging!

Hi all,

Hope you're well and life is good. It's been a while since I last posted as life was extremely hectic in June tying up loose ends at work before the summer break and then I've been on holiday in Tenerife for the last couple of weeks which was fantastic. Lewis had a ball, loved flying and we had brilliant weather - sunshine everyday! Just as well as there is very little of it here! I've spent my time washing and ironing pretty much since I got home as well as trying to toilet train Lewis. Now that has been fun!!! Hasn't been very successful so have decided to leave him a little bit longer before trying again. Anyone with great tips out there, I'd love to hear from you! :o)

Here are some pictures from our holiday although I am planning to scrap a lot of them as I haven't done any scrapping in ages:


While I was away my lovely SBS sister Sammi presented all her SBS sisters with this great award! Thank you so much Sammi - I've missed you while I've been missing in blogland!

It's a special award given to weblogs that somehow catch your eye!
The rules for this award:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you've nominated

I am going to nominate the following people whose blogs I have come across recently and will be visiting regularly from now on:



Sammi tagged me a while ago and unfortunately I never got around to doing it because life has been so hectic recently! Sorry Sammi - better late than never! This seems to be the story of my life at the moment!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

Each player answers the questions about themselves.
At the end of the post, the player then tags a few people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

a) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was looking for a job as a teacher having just graduated from University and working in MacDonalds where I worked as a student to earn some much needed cash!

b) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Ironing (more again - will it ever end?)
Going Christmas shopping with Lewis and my sister (Yes, you read correctly!)
Clearing out some cupboards
Watch Big Brother (my nightly viewing!)
Some much needed crafting hopefully - lots of cards to make and some scrapping too!

c) Snacks I enjoy:
chocolate (not very healthy!)

d) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Pay off my and my family members mortgages
Buy Steven an Aston Martin (his favourite car)
Give a considerable amount to charity
Do volunteer work for a variety of causes
Buy lots and lots and lots of crafting stash ( or a shop or two!)

Now I tag:

Apologies ladies if you have already done this before! All good fun!
