night off? don't think so...

Decided that even though I'm busy I wouldn't work tonight (weekend and all that)....until someone decided it was freebie friday!
As everyone knows I'm a designer I'm always getting roped in to designing freebies for friends/charities/schools/playgroups etc....tonight I've been asked to design a logo for the campaign in our area for a new high school.... night off -  cancelled!
Before the email I was faffing about with this:

back...and busy

Got back on Monday but sooo busy I haven't had time to holidays + kids + work = can't fit it all in!
We had a brill time in Filey, a 'proper' holiday where we built sandcastles, had donkey rides and picnics on the beach. Kids loved it, Alf cried on Sunday night cos he didn't want to come home!
Back to it now though, loads of work and limited time available to do it... only got spare time now 'cos I'm waiting for comments from a client who's gone home for the night.....
SO....I'm off to bed, I'm exhausted!

holiday the little people finish school on Wednesday and we still haven't booked a holiday!
We went on a fab cruise last year and I really want to do it again....but I fear we may have left it too late.
Been searching the internet tonight but you can't book online when you've got kids...and it's too late to phone them now. 
I'll have to wait till the morning...may not get much work done tomorrow!

busy days

Loads of things going on at the mo, stopping me from working :-)
Yesterday morning I went to church to see Jodie's Leaver's Service and last night was the leaver's production at school. (She leaves first school on Wednesday! Where did that go!)
Then it's my friend Ali's annual race trip to the races in an hour....I never win....probably 'cos I choose my horse based on what colour spots the jockey's wearing!

royal wedding

The wedding was just fab fab fab!
The weather was gorgeous (30 degrees in England! wow!) and the bride (Auntie Louise) looked beautiful.
We arrived on an old fashioned "wedding" bus (Alf's fave bit), the reception was held in a massive marquee in beautiful surroundings, we had about a million meals, a sweetie table, dancing, fireworks and an ice cream van which arrived at night to hand out free ice cream. Even the napkins on the table were embroidered with our names!
It was the first wedding my little people have attended...I have told them it's all downhill from here, they're never gonna beat that!
Back to reality now, and lots of work to catch up on...

big chair for a little bottom

Today was moving up day.
All the little people moved to their new classes...little JodiePie moved up to middle school for the day!
She always worries about new things but seemed to enjoy herself. 
When pressed for details she told me that the chairs were much bigger and her feet didn't touch the floor. Aw!

story time

It has to be said that I'm a bit rubbish with itunes. I had loads of fab tunes on my ipod till I got my new computer....then I managed to somehow wipe it clean ....just as the old computer died, losing everything... and I now have next to nothing on it. 
Anyway no worries cos now I've got my iphone I'm gonna start again.
I've given the ipod to Alf and have spent all night putting his audio books on it...just in time for our long journey to Norwich on Friday :-)
I designed this little dude for M&P babywear yonks ago...managed to salvage him from the old computer before it died!

how much?!

We had a family trip into Leeds today to get the last bits of our wedding outfits (off to a FAB wedding in Norwich next weekend, can't wait!)
We were only there 3 hours and the car park cost £9.80.....outrageous!
All ready for the "royal" wedding now though, roll on Friday :-)
