Bereft....

and lost, I have finished the last Twilight book :(, I tried to make them last as long as I could, but that's it and I miss them. On her blog Stephanie has explained how the incomplete manuscript for her fifth book Midnight Sun was stolen, and for a while she was too upset to contemplate completing it, but it seems she has now changed her mind. It is the story from Edwards point of view - I cannot wait, If you haven't read these books, do so now - you are missing out.
Saturday night was panto night, I know, I know, we've been already! Well this is an amateur charity one, with 12 male cast members (most of whom we know well). Henry got to sit at the front and help the dame all night, and was in charge of the water pistol, he even got on stage at the end to take a bow, and he was so pleased with himself! Was a really fun evening.

What else has been going on? Well Jonathan and I travelled up to London on Sunday and had an excellent lunch at the RAF club, we managed to get home before the snow started coming down with any force.

Monday, we had a good couple of inches of snow, I am pleased to say that Henry's school was one of the few that opened, I think it is good for the children to realise that life goes on, even if it snows a bit and that it is not an excuse to have a day off - it puts them in good stead for their working life (I am a very practical person!). I pulled the children to school on the sledge which they loved, Evie and I made half a snowman before she got too cold and on the way home from school we found a little hill for them to sledge down, which caused great excitement until Henry's school trousers got wet and he was too cold to stay out. Jonathan went off to Sudbury, the roads had been well gritted and so he had no problems.



Last night Jonathan and I went off to the Theatre with Annie, Spike and another couple of friends to see Fascinating Aida, if you ever get the chance to see these three ladies in action, go for it - they are so funny I cannot tell you. I hadn't given Annie any idea what to expect and the expression on her face was priceless!

Annie and I got together on Monday evening for a bit of valentines scrapping, we made some of these hearts from an old Papercrafts magazine:


And I also altered this box and filled it with cupcakes for a friends birthday:

And I don't think I showed you this gorgeous little mini book Annie taught a couple of weeks ago at Your Touch of Craft, I am going to make another this weekend as a gift for a friend who has just had a baby.

Well, that's it, I'm off to bed, thanks for stopping by xx
