Its over for one more year. I got breaky in bed – choc chip pikelets and a cup of green tea as we were out of milk. : () Nice slow start to the day then watched Shorty St omnibus which I never watch but Miss 12 had missed it all week what with her busy social life Ya Know! then it was a quick whizz round to tidy up before Mother, my sister and her girls arrive. The little one crawled round in curious, must explore mode – read – I must eat or destroy all I can get my hands on . We had a lovely afternoon tea while Miss 4 and her cousin played dollies. Mother seemed happy with her present.
Now to more important things – Scrapbooking of course. I got 2 more pages done last night and 1 tonight. They seem to be flowing out of me nicely at the mo.
I had an unfortunate accident while making this L/O. I was embossing the photo corners over the toaster as you do and it fell in. I shook it out and it was done almost to perfection. BUT I just couldnt leave well enough alone and tried to even it out and … you guessed it I lost it in the toaster again. Im damned if I know where it went after that cos I couldnt shake it out. I think the toaster ATE it! could this be a message from the scrapping gods that I need to buy a proper embossing tool or on my budget probably just some new tongs.
I also did a Sketch Challenge for Scrapbook by Design which came up OK and I would probably use this sketch again.
I’ll finish up tonight with what I got for Mothers Day. Ali made me a lovely photo of herself in a tin foil frame at Kindy, Zoe gave me a lip gloss, Jordan a cute wee paper handbag (wonder where he got that idea) and then I got a big present but Oh Dear! ” Have you got the receipt Honey?” Why “Cos this is what you gave me for Christmas” I said. Did I he says.
To avoid times such as this I took the kids and showed them exactly what I wanted in the holidays but I guess that werent paying attention. Oh well the thought was there……….
