late nights

Well, thanks to the fantastic stay at Titanic Spa, the 4 hours I spent queuing for the new iphone4 (I know! omg! That's 4 hours of my life I'll never get back!!) and the fact that Neil's away for the weekend on his bike (so can't look after the little people)....I'm having a few late nights to finish my work.
Luckily I'm really enjoying what I'm doing at the mo :-)
Ready for bed though.....in a couple of hours....zzzzz

Sooo busy!
Doing some fab work which I'm really enjoying....but gotta break off now 'cos tomorrow I'm taking my sis to the Titanic Spa for the night. Yay!! We are so giddy, it's my present to her for the special birthday she had a couple of weeks ago. (Excellent idea, a pressie I can share!) 
Back soon x

saturday park-day

We always go to the park on a Saturday. Poppy the puppy always comes with us too these days.
Today it was just me and my sis and our 5 kids ...so not too many little people fighting over their turn to hold the lead...

lovely day had by all

The school trip was fab!
We went to the great yorkshire show ground where they were having a countryside day for about a million schools.
We did loads of country related activities and saw a brill "sheep show".
Jodie's fave bit was handling the baby pygmy hedgehogs.
My fave bit was the conversation I had with 8 yr old Kirk about cheese being our absolute favourite.
Kirk: I love love love cheese.
Me: So do I, do you like Stilton?
Kirk: No.
Me: What's your favourite cheese?
Kirk: Er....grated.
ha ha ha!

school trip

My little Jodie-pie leaves First School next month....Middle School for her in September!
It's the leaver's "secret trip" tomorrow and I managed to book my place as a helper. (Can't tell you where we're going though or I'd have to kill you!)
Hoping that the sun will be shining on us!

all partied out

We had a fab time last night. We managed to stay at the party till 1am....just as it was really getting going! 
Apparently it went on till 7.30am!! 
1 am was late enough for us, don't know how they managed to stay up all night!
The little people should sleep well tonight!

come on England!

Neil's sister has bowed to pressure. 
At first she said that no way was she having the football on at her party....then people said they weren't going if she didn't have the football on.....NOW she's having the football on at her party!
Hope she's got a big screen :-)

Our neice had a baby on Friday... little baby Bailey. We went to visit him tonight, he is gorgeous!
We took him this.....

I designed the characters for this range and really loved working on it.
This is what it looked like before the fabulous Vicky at M&P put it all together....

go to sleep, it's school tomorrow!

We had a fab weekend!
But the trouble with letting your children stay up late whilst on holiday is that they sooo don't wan't to go to sleep at their normal bedtime when they get home. The little horrors have just stopped jumping out of bed.....I'm not looking forward to the morning!

...to our new home in the forest....well just for the weekend!
Back soon X

My friend had a baby, Happi-Star, a few weeks ago. She was born at 29 weeks so has been in hospital ever since...but she's home now!
Her nursery is Gingerbread from Mamas and Papas and since I designed the characters it was only right I should do little Happi her own little pic for the wall.
Finished it last night....taking it round tomorrow, can't wait to meet her!
