yes I know I am a bit early with this one but tomorrow is weekend and the children are very excited as we are going to have what I think is traditionally known abroad as a yard sale, they are going to put a table outside in our front garden and sell their old toys and by the sounds of it anything else they can get their hands on, (as long as it is not all my craft goodies), so will update you on monday on their progress. Will try and find another blog for sunday though so do drop in and have a look

Oh my poor feet, they really do ache. As it was the weekend and my husband was at work for the whole of it, in my wisdom I decided on a day trip to London with my kids, a borrowed kid and my friend and her three kids. Had seen Elephant Parade advertised, so I downloaded the map and off we went. We were lucky with the weather and once we saw our first few elephants the kids got into the swing of things and away we went. We must have walked miles, via a MacDonalds of course. All in all we had a great day and took loads of pictures, went to see her Maj at Buck House but she was not there today. The kids are still buzzing but to be totally honest its off to bed for me. Goodnight all and enjoy the pictures.

Also met Toni today, a very supportive wife and despite what has happened and you will learn more when things develop, a very well grounded person, without malice and suspicion. I am sure as time goes on we can become friends rather than just a mutual point in a story. Of course Harry is happy to be friends with whoever, providing you dont appear to look like a ghost, but that is another story and hopefully you will see evidence on Youtube in the next couple of days. So come with me on my journey, hope on-board you are welcome.

sorry it has been a while, we have had half term and I have been busy on new and old projects.
I did a visit to Phoenix-Trading head office a week or so ago, what an interesting day. Saw the whole process of how a drawing becomes a card, note paper etc right through to what happens to all the orders that arrive how they pick, pack and dispatch.
I also turned 50, which seems to be a big deal to mostly everybody except me. How do you feel today I was asked, well the question is the same as I did yesterday, last week, last year, in fact the same as when I was 49, 48, 47 and back and back. What was expected ?? was my hair supposed to turn grey overnight and all my teeth fall out, my skin to wrinkle even more and my brain to go into total shutdown ??? I dont know, but I feel that being 50 is over-rated.
Anyway that is enough waffle from me. Now is the part where I NEED YOUR HELP. I know you bloggers are great people. Can you help Paul Reed turn his idea into the next new advert for Doritos. Imagine what a story this will make for round the table on Christmas Day this year. I CHOSE THE NEW DORITOS ADVERT. My friend Paul is very talented and has spend time and effort into making this advert
please copy and paste this link, share it amongst your friends, post it on your blog, email it to your nearest and dearest. This is important and will mean a lot to Paul.
If you want to know more about him go to
Thanks bloggers and I wont leave it so long between blogs again (I promise)

Just wondering however, with my little part time job, Phoenix cards, and being mum with all the associated housework etc, plus my Ebay shop and my new love of sewing how on earth am I going to fit it all in. and lets not forget my love for polymer clay. Has anybody got any extra hours I can add to my 24, or a shortcut to feeling as if you have had hours sleep when in fact you have only been asleep for about 4 hours. All suggestions welcome.

Went to the last of my current Crochet classes last night. It was small and intimate but great company and some bizarre conversations, I find Sioned a very entertaining young lady. Tania managed to cast off her knitting and Barbara well she was just Barbara. Dont know if I can manage an advanced class yet, maybe a craft group would be good, embrace all things crafting. We will see. Well Ebay goods to pack so better get on with it. Tatarrr

I have struggled all my adult like with learning a foreign language.
Many a teacher whilst I was at school threw their arms up in the air in despair.
I was speaking something other than the language they were trying to teach me.
Despite living in Spain as a child I refused to speak Spanish
Now however, thanks to my dear friend Lisa I have learnt to speak a little Australian
I know what a Motza is and a few other phrases that I cant remember here and now but if spoken or written I know what they mean. So approaching my half century I can finally speak something other than English and complete gibber jabber.
My trusted friend who always answers my technical questions has told me that my settings would not allow comments from friends and followers.
So with a lot of huff and puff I have managed to figure out how to change this.
Your comments are always welcome be them constructive, technical or just chit chat but please no undesirable language as my kids read this as well.
The sun is out and it finally looks like spring has sprung, oh happy days.
