A quick catch up with photos....

life is as hectic and busy as ever, feeling quite stressed and so this is just a quick catch up with photos!
This is my amazing friend Elaine, who does not know the meaning of stressed, she tackles everything with amazing ease, including three children and a partner who works long hours as well as working herself. When I phoned last minute in desperate need of child care she quite happily took them in for a sleep over - how excited were my two!
Evie is finding five afternoons a week in nursery quite tiring!
Jonathan is away loads in September as always, so the children and I have been keeping busy, this was a trip to the Abbey Gardens last Saturday.
I suddenly remembered that I had been given a bicycle for Evie by a friend over a year ago, so I got into mum & dads loft where it was being kept and found it is now the perfect size for Evie and so much easier for her to ride than her old toddler Fifi one! She is so different from Henry and was off like a shot with no fear, so now we can all ride our bikes to school!

We had a lovely day at friends last Sunday, a delicious lunch followed by Neil taking the children out on the river - a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.

Evie came home from school this week and took the letter 'e' off the fridge:- 'Mummy, this is e for Evie' !! Bless her!

The children enjoyed picking all the apples from our little apple tree in the garden (sorry for poor photo. - How gorgeous are Evie's new boots!)

Henry has moved from Beavers up to Cubs and took his promise this week.

And last but not least, Evie has had a hair cut at last!
Life is not going to get any calmer for a month or so, I will try and keep updating as much as I can!
Thanks for dropping by xx

A big catch up

I am so sorry about the lack of blogging, I have to admit I am a bit off blogging at the moment, but here I am ready to try and fill you in on the last few weeks! Firstly I have done lot's of crafting! The door stop is a fantastic cloth kits kit! and all the rest is Mosh Posh kit's, except Evies birthday invitations which I used a template for and followed some of Suezies designs.

I'm going to work backwards and start with school! Look how grown up my babies are! Both are really enjoying school/nursery. Henry has just been voted onto the school council so Jonathan & I are very proud of him!

Back to the last couple of weeks of the summer holidays, we went to Bath,

Beautiful Ross on Wye to visit Jonathans brother Philip and his mum,

Woodbridge to visit friends on their boat - fantastic fun day, the children loved crabbing!

The children and I went to Bressingham Steam park and Gardens

and we all went to Africa Alive

This is on top of trips to parks, picnics and visits to friends - no wonder the holidays went so fast!
I held the first Creative Croppers crop and class, it was a great night and thanks to all those ladies who supported me, the next one is going to be on Friday 9th October, details will be e-mailed to those on my list soon, if you want to join the list please leave me a comment or e-mail me - the more the merrier.

Also, Your Touch of Crafts Autumn Workshop is coming up quickly, Sunday 11th October with four class, a make and take, a goody bag, lunch and refreshments through out the day, £65 is a bargin - book soon, before it's too late!

I am taking Shimelles 'Learn something new everyday' class during September and loving it! I have done online classes before and not been too sure, but this one is great and I managed to get a kit which I love!

Well I promise to try harder with my blogging from now on! Thanks for bearing with me xxx
