Ive also been very good too.....

I've been trying to loose a little bit of weight (again, yes!) and i set myself a target of half a stone loss in a month and i hit it today :) a couple of days late but i've lost half a stone.... YAY :)

Proud of myself, going to try and keep it up and see if i can get another half a stone before xmas.... not sure if i'll hit that target but i'll try :)

Ohh, ive been naughty!

I've just ordered the winter stamp kit from whiff of joy, there back in stock for a limited time with 20% off them!!! I think the stamps work out at only £3 with the reduction.... :)

Tempted by more from there site but am trying to hold back...... we shall see how that goes, lol!! Waiting for some greeting farm stamps to arrive to.

Well my little girl was 7 on friday :) she has a lovely birthday :)

She loved all of her pressies :)

Over the weekend we took her out to one of the indoor play places which the kids both love and then we went for a lovely meal which the kids both loved too :)

Been to work this morning and this afternoon im waiting in for a parcel.... im hoping it comes before 3pm!! I did want to pop to the shops this afternoon but i don't think i'm going to be able to.

The weather is quite bright here this afternoon :) makes a change!!

I got kobe a lovely coat from tesco the other day which was in the sale already and it had an extra 20% off too so a £35 coat cost me £10 :) i was made up :) had to order one for ellie out of the catalogue as all the ones in the shops either aren't that nice or are wool ones and there no good for kids in the bad weather we have.

Have a good afternoon all x

more xmas cards

I think i've fell in love with these wild rose studio stamps :) there so cute!!

Also, there clear stamps but they work well with the wetter inks (Adirondack & Versa fine) there not great with stazon tho.

Means i can use my lovely pro markers with them too :)


I also made some cards with the free papers from cardmaking and papercraft :)


Excited for tomorrow :)

YAY good news....

Morning all,

I'm really happy today :)

I went to see the manager at the nursery this morning where I'm going to be starting at. I asked her weather i could start anytime soon as my crb hasn't come back from their yet but I'd had one done at the training company which i'm doing my nvq2 through which I'd already had back.
So she said yep that's fine so I'm starting tomorrow! :)

My first ever's voluntary and for my nvq but it's 16 hours a week so it will keep me busy :) really looking forward to it :)

Ive got to wear black pants, lilac blouse and a black jumper and it feels like im in school again, lol..... feel really fat in it too which isn't good!! (really need to loose some weight!!) Hope you have a good day

Monday Morning....

Morning all, Wet here again today, kids are back in school too (yippee... no more fighting until 3.15pm!) We got our sky plus and sky multiroom yesterday.
They were suppost to be here between 12 - 1pm..... they turned up at 2pm!! GRR!!

They left about 3.45pm (don't know why it took so long!) and they left me with all dirty footprints through the house.... so annoying.

I've got my fingers crossed that my CRB comes back today or at least sometime this week.... driving me crazy being in all day on my own knowing that i could be doing something else.

Really looking forward to starting at the nursery and doing my NVQ2 tho, can't wait!

Have a good day xx

Wet and dark here today, absolutly pouring down outside!

We've got to wait in today too as our sky + is coming.

Kids are back in school tomorrow, can't wait, they've done nothing but fight and argue this half term.

Have a good sunday x
