Thank crunchie its friday!

After a long troublesome week at work im really glad its friday.
Its my eldest sons 11th birthday next friday so im going to the town shopping tomorrow with my daughter and Mam so we can go and get him some scrummy pressents for him. It will be great to go shopping with Ashleigh as its a while since we had some mother and daughter time, i usually have all 3 kids with me on saturday as Martin is always working on a weekend.
Ive been chatting with a friend online (HI Jane if your'e reading this) who i met on UK Scrappers, it was great hearing from her, we used to be team mates but for one reason or another we both left. It made me feel good to see at least some one was reading my blog, even if it is just one person.
On the scrapping front ive just bought some stash from the US from an ebay seller who i have used before craftykitty, i cant wait for it to arrive i ordered some of the queen and co stuff (i think its because i love the makeup style packaging), junkitz papers, mod buttons, MM papers, chipboard alphabets, and some rubons. I will be shopping with her again soon as i have a list as long as my arm for more stuff i need and want.
im also tempted to buy more of the maya road ribbons as the are LUSH, i want every collection, no strike that its not want its NEED!

fed up!

what can i say? today has been the most awful day and for no reason, i just feel fed up.
but i did feel much better when i came home from work and was greeted by Sam (my 3 year old) with the biggest smile and biggest hug for me, now that is worth coming home for.
I am thinking of changing my job and going back to being a teaching assistant, thats something i will have to think about for a little while, im not sure how i could cope with the extra stress.
On a lighter note i have been scrapping some more and have also decided to make a few cards to put in a box for when you forget to go and buy a card and the shops are shut.
Martin is on night shift tonight so ill just go back to scrapping and get an early night, that might make me feel a little more human in the morning.

new beginning

I've decided today to start my hobby of scrapbooking again, I gave it all up around 7 months ago and sold most of my stash, although I did keep all my tools and only my very favorite bits of loot.
I was on a roll today as I produced 2, 12 x 12 layouts and I surprised myself as they are not all that bad to say I've been out of practice for so long.
online craft shops had better beware as now I will be back in my shop till I drop mode. Till tomorrow folks.... See you.
