Awaiting the storm.........

Blooming heck it's hot!!

Spent yesterday morning cleaning (sorry, didn't mean to swear!!), then tried to scrap during the afternoon, managed one layout, but I guess thats better than nothing! Was in bed by 9:30 last night, absolutely shattered. Woke up at 4am to the sound of p*****g down rain, guess who left washing out on the line?? Thought it might cool thinks down, but no, too hot again.

So we braved another visit to the park this afternoon, stopped at the shop for supplies (sweets, drinks, magazines) then we sat in the shade of the trees & had a little picnic, lovely! Unfortunately there was no shade over the playground, so the slide etc was too hot to go on. So we went for a walk through the woods, collecting lots of pine cones, leaves, stones & sticks.

We are apparently due for a nasty storm this afternoon, so that should be fun with two little girls who are afraid of thunder!

Hectic Day

Phew....what a day!! 1st official day of the summer hols, how I wish that the rest of the hols aren't going to be like today!!

Wanted to get the girls out for a little while today, but relaistically, none of us could really be bothered!! So it took us nearly half the day to get ready.....& off we set for the park. Once we got there all hell broke running off, whining, crying,etc. I gave up after about 30 mins & set off for home. I tried bribing them with the promise of ice cream if they behaved whilst I popped to the Post Office, to send my cj off, but it was packed when we got there, & my darling little ones decided to try & demolish the shop, so the promise of ice cream was quickly withdrawn & they were marched back home!! Luckily I got back to the PO before they closed to post my cj.

What has happened to my lovely little girls?? I swear somebody has swopped them for the little terrors that i spent the day with!!

Fingers crossed, all will be better tommorrow. Will attempt another visit to the park, as well as the libary first thing in the morning, so hopefully will have some scrapping time tommorrow evening. Spent most of last night finishing my cj, cant wait to receive the one that has been sent to me!!

Brand New Blog

So here is my brand new blog...........had set one up previously, but it would never update properly, no idea why?? One day I WILL learn more about computers!

Did this LO last night, was getting seriously p***** trying to figure out Photoshop, so decided to scrap instead. Cant believe how well this came together!!

Last day of the school term, all the parents got to go into the class to listen to the little ones sing, it was so sweet!! Can't believe she's been there a whole term already!! OMIGOD!! Ive just realised that in about 2 weeks time shes gonna be 4!! NOOOOO!!!! Shes growing up too fast, how do I make it stop?!?!

Its past midnight & it's still much as I love the summer, its just too hot at the moment. I don't know why the heat feels different here to when your abroad?? Abroad its noce & relaxing, here its hot, stuffy, uncomfortable........need I go on......?

Spent the evening finishing my first CJ!! Ok, well haven't actually completely finished it, have done the front cover, intro page & sign in page, all I need to do is my entry! Its a Team CJ, from UKScrappers. My theme is "5 Things That Make You Happy", must finish it this weekend as it needs to be sent on Monday!!

Plans for the weekend.......well will be rushing around tommorrow, to find a fancy dress costume for a party tommorrow night, so that'll be great fun, as for Sunday, well fingers crossed I'll get the time to scrap!!

Night night.
