I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.
I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring!
Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)
Yesterday the kids had a lovely day. The playgroup that they attend was invited to a 30th birthday party for Flambards. Not only did they have a party where there was party food and drink but there was a DJ playing nice kiddie songs for them. The organisers had even thought of showing cartoons on a big screen when the children were sitting down at the tables to keep their attention from wondering.
Half way through the party we all had to go outside and wave flags at the Countess of Wessex as she arrived to come and cut the cake. It was lovely for the children but a nightmare for us Mum's as they kept us there for AGES before she turned up and the kids were all getting very bored and very hot by the time she got there. After all that waiting she walked down the other side of the road to us and my kids weren't very happy after being told they were going to get to meet a princess! Anyway she came into the hall afterwards and got all the kids to sing Happy Birthday to Flambards which was really nice of her and she cut the cake. I have to say the press are a pain! None of the kids could see her when she was doing all this because all the camera men just encircled her and it was a mass of black. I don't think the kids cared by this time anyway! They had ice lollys, balloons, flags and the rest of their dinner to keep them happy.
I forgot to take my camera!! I did have my mobile phone on me though which has a 2mp camera so I managed to get a few photos which I may be able to print to a certain quality.
