 it was a lovely day and i had a tear or two lol
look at Di's gorgeous dress, she made it herself, 
Well done Di you looked beautiful
heres to a wonderful future together Mark and Di xxx
 as for the rest of the weekend, i was working in THE SHOP yesterday, the shop being Craftydaze, it was the papercraft extravaganza, a full day of crafting with some fab results, they all went home tired but happy crafters.
Then when i got home, as if i hadnt had enough i made my little owl, a pattern i am working on, very happy with my first draft,as always a few changes i want to make, 
but one happy crafter

 more than one pattern going on at a time,
 what is happening to me?
 i had better take advantage of it while it lasts lol i still need to remake my owl bag from my previous post and iron out the wrinkles as it were, but then another one popped into my head so that is also in the pipe line, actualy made my first run on it but left it at work so you will have to do with a pic of my bedtime scribbles as a bit of a preview but watch this space, 
so tonight i have been typing up the pattern for my flower heart cushion, owl bag is still in scribble form and needs typing up, Halloweeny bag is still in scribble form too!

Starting School and Skegvegas!!

 Well the time has arrived for jakey to go to big school ,he has always gone to nursery and loves it but its time to move on, and in his uniform he is no longer our baby, 
look how happy he is at the end of his first day at school, 
well done jakey

So we decided to take the littlies to skegvegas before the weather turns and as the weekend was forecast to be ok,this was the time to do it,
 we didnt tell them just turned up to pick them up yesterday morning, packed a picnic and off we went.
those that know me know i just love the beach and getting me feet in the sand/sea, and after the year i have had this has been my first chance to do so, so i am very happy!
 the kids loved it too, we bought buckets and spades and played on the sand for a couple of hours, ran in and out of the sea,
 notice jake in the background paddling in the sea!
 jake loved walking up and down collecting his shells,
minutes after this jake while paddling was knocked over by a huge wave (in jakes words) in reality it was upto his ankles lol but he was soaked but loved getting very wet,
luckily we had a warm towel and a change of clothes to sort him out when he had had enough.

It was all too much for mia at one point and she fell asleep mmmmmm not sure i would have been comfy like that but she slept in this position for about 2 hours so it must have been comfy lol
and we received lots of chuckles from people when they saw her
