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)
Ben started school today! I can't believe it, my little boy is now a school boy. He was very excited this morning especially when he put his posh new uniform on and he looked so cute. He is only going half days at first so I picked him up at ten to twelve and he came out so happy. He had made a picture for me with flowers on and the teachers had given him a certificate for his first day (mmmmm... ideal to scrapbook methinks!). He said that he had the best day EVER and can't wait to go tomorrow.
Of course, we had to take the obligatory first day at school photos. I was a little annoyed that Ben's hair is so long but I took him to the hairdressers in Plymouth last week and he point blank refused to sit in the chair. He made such a fuss that even the hairdresser said she would not do his hair. Daddy is going to take him next Saturday whilst I am at the crop (Scraps in the City). Never mind, I can explain on my layout why his hair looks so long for his first day of school lol.
Charlotte starts playgroup five mornings a week tomorrow so it is all happening in our household at the moment.
Charlotte and I made some fairy cakes this morning to celebrate Ben starting school and considering she just HAD to help at every point they turned out nice. Ben and Charlotte certainly enjoyed scoffing them after their lunch.
