ive been tagged

ok so ive been tagged by the lovely karen, after reading everyone elses including jackey, marja karen i too thought it was an easy task but boy were they right, so here goes.
here are my 6 wierd things about me.

1. i am meticulous about being on time for anything in fact i am always at least 20 mins early for everything and i start to panic if martin and the kids arnt ready at least 10 mins before we have to go out.

2. when putting the shopping away i have to have everything in order, ie all soups together, all veg etc. then all the labels have to be facing the front.

3. when phoning someone official i have to write key words down so i dont get flumoxed and forget what im ringing them for.

4. i wont eat sandwiches that i havnt made myself.

5. i panic, and rush out shopping if there isnt at least 2 full packs of loo rolls in the house.

6. one pupil of my eyes is way bigger than the other.

im tagging anyone else who cares to read my blog, oh thats probably no one then, better get out blog pimping LOL.

thanks for that challenge karen (not! LOL) it was harder than i thought

eventfull weekend

WOW what an eventful weekend ive had so far, nothing fun just lots of busy time.
i know its not spring yet but ive been having a major spring clean and a clear out.
saturday morning i went out shopping with Ashleigh, were were gone about 3 hours, we had a trip to debenhams and i bought ashleigh some nice jeans a top and pj's that were in the sale with 70% off, i love a bargain. then i went into DIY mode and started buying pictures, shelves, wallpaper borders, curtains and a curtain pole. when we returned home i had the urge to start work ASAP. up went the curtain pole and new curtains followed by the pictures and shelves in various rooms, once that was done i stopped and ordered a chinese (martin was at work on nights so someone had to feed the kids!) I let my tea/supper settle and then i set to work on my wardrobe, god some of the junk in there was unbelievable 3 bags for charity and 2 bags of rubbish ( still now there is more room for me to fill it back up with new stuff (mwahahahahaha)at 11.30 last night i decided enough was enough and a had a cuppa a shower and went to bed, only to wake up this morning with the same inclination so after dinner im planning what i can do next, i know one of my jobs will be to put a new border up in jonathans bedroom (if i manage to get to next to buy it) and wash the windows outside (note to oneself, i must find a window cleaner)
i will of course stop a lot earlier tonight as Martin is at work again and ive got the kids uniforms to iron and early to bed ready for work in the morning. And during all this work ive not neglected the kids, jonathan is helping sam with his new thomas the tank game and ashleigh is in her element sorting out all her things in her room as i put up shelves and a hanging rail type thing, she is so girlie and everything has to be just so.
thats all for now i hope im not to knackered to sign in tomorrow.LOL

heck of a day

ive had the worst day today, it started bad when eldest son (11) couldnt find his big coat for school he had only had it the day before, turns out he lost it at school the day before, along with everything else he has lost since september footie boots, footie socks, t shirt, shorts, planner, rugby shirt and now his coat. he hasnt had any of these items back either, to be honest i dont think he has even looked hes very laxy dazy, so ive banned him from the computer, took away his psp etc untill he can value and respect his items and learn to look after his belongings.
that set me off in a bad mood for the day, i went to work only to find a pile of paperwork that should of been completed and faxed the previous day by the head caretaker, so i had to do all of it before i could even start on my own work, it just so happens the above mentioned caretaker went on holiday today and knew i couldn't not do his work, (wait untill he returns!)
when i returned home i was greeted with a broken washer, it wont do anything and the repair man cant come untill monday, well at least it gets me out of a few chore for a few days.

On a brighter note i had won some stamps off ebay, and they were here when i got home from work so i will be trying them out tonight, still waiting on one more package hope it arrives tomorrow, it is another stamp and some ink pads, will share piccies with you tomorrow if it arrives.

i was reading heidi swapps blog and i cant believe she is pregnant again, there will be only 11 months between her babies, i had children 22 months apart and that was hardwork enough . still its really good news and she will cope just fine with her gorgeous family around her.

i still havnt tried digi scrapping although i am a step closer ive read a few tutorials.

i was going to include a piccy but i cant be bothered to upload any after the day ive had.

new year, new start!

well i decided on new years eve that i was going to blog more often so i had something to look back on for reference, that was almost a month ago! so 23 days too late here is my first entry of 2007. Im not going to waffle on about what has happened in the last mo0nth or what has happened since october (my last entry) im starting a fresh from today.

ive been checking out kirstys blog (sorry cant do a link, im not that techie) and she has been creating didgi kits, ive decided im going to step into the world of cyber scrapping and start didgi.

talking about scrapping last night i scrapped for the first time since november, i completed 2 layouts and altered a giant peg that i bought from Au Naturale, they were reduced from 2.50 to a great price of 45p they only yad 6 left so i snapped them all up, i will go back on saturday to see if they have any more in, you cant let them get away at only 45p can you?

we woke up this morning to snow, the kids were so excited but i didnt last, but somehow i dont think we have seen the last of it yet, its freezing and forcast for a lot more.
