New arrivals x

These are the newest members to the family, darwin the boy who is at the back and the other one is a female and we have'nt decided on a name yet, she was called valarie but i don't really like that name and we kept darwins name.

Aww, there really cute. Abit shy yet. The girl is better than the boy. Hopefully they'll settle in ok :)

Craft box challenge, card 1

All i used were bits already in my scrapbox, i might need to add some brads or flowers and maybe a sentiment but other than that it's all older items just lying around.

Morning all,

I'm not feeling to great.

My throat and ear are sore and i've had really bad lower back pain since friday night and i'm having trouble sleeping because of it :( so i'm really tired, run down and sore.

Were taking kobe out today for his birthday and i'm not in the mood, hoping to wake up abit and for my back to ease up abit too.

Theres a thin layer of either snow or hail outside aswell, it's only just above freezing too. Brr xx

My little man is 5 on monday :) were gonna go for a chinese on sunday and have a little buffet tea on monday, looking foward to seeing him open his presents too :)

Started making a wrestling card for him, need to get it finished!! Don't know what else to put on it, lol, i'm sure i'll think of something :)

I'm officially freezing!!!

Just had lunch, going to make another cup of coffee, chill out for abit and i have a dress from work to sew as one of the kids split it and then i've got to take kobe to the docters as he has some spots on his face which look abit blistery, just want to get them checked out.

I think the heating will be going on soon tho!!!

Been waiting for my candy to arrive that i won a month ago, it hasn't arrived yet because of bad weather and everything, really looking forward to getting it tho and having a play with all the new stamps and things :) i'm hoping it comes this week in time for half term :)
