Blimey!

Pesky kids eh? My two have just had a falling out of epic proportions resulting in both of them shouting how much they hate each other and ending with my 3 year old proclaiming at the top of her voice that her sister is "a little brat" (actually it was bwat - bless her she has a tendency to speak like Jonathon Ross). Sigh.....why can't we be like the Waltons? If it's like this now at 3 and 7 what will they be like when they hit their teens??? Yikes I'd better invest in earplugs....

I've had a fairly quiet day (until Abigail came home from school that is!), just me and Maddie at home. It's my Gran's 87th birthday on Sunday so Maddie made her a card (which I've forgotten to photograph) and as the stash was out I had a little play. I couldn't help myself.......my Funky Hand friends are so going to shout at me!!!

I started a papermania scalloped chipboard al
bum that Emma kindly sent me to try. I feel awful that I haven't managed to do it yet so I made a start this afternoon. It's been great fun I have to say and once I get some photographs organised it's going to be so fab. I've taken some pics but obviously it's a work in progress and it'll have ribbons on the rings when it's finished.

























































Last thing....check out what came in the post from my fab friend Ruth! What an awesome get well card - she's so clever. I reckon me and that dinosaur were seperated at birth! The likeness is uncanny right down to the sheepish look on it's face :o)

Thanks so much Ruth - you're ace! xxx

My bro and I faught like cat and dog - actually the only reason we don't still is because I'm better at keeping my goh shut now! He talks such drivel sometimes, but I really can't be bothered to argue anymore.

The book is great, looks really wonderful - and so is Ruth's cute card
