My profile

Sarah Youde (aka monroegirl)
Plymouth, UK.

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)

No Way!

I can't believe it is so long since I have blogged! What is going on? Well, nothing actually lol.
I seem to have been busy doing nothing. I did have visitors last weekend which was nice and we have taken the kids to Flambards a couple of times but that is about it! It just seems that we are roaming around, teaching Ben to count and read and keeping Charlotte occupied.
We have rearranged the house a bit and we no longer have a playroom for the children. Instead we have a family Den. We love it, it is a little room off the kitchen and there is enough room for my scrapping desk, a tv and a sofa! It is so cosy that we haven't even used our lounge since. The main reason for this was that in the house that we are renting at the moment (in the depths of Cornwall) the heating doesn't work. With the winter coming we thought it would be a lot easier to just heat the kitchen and the den and live in that part of the house. Last year was horrendous and I am sure it was colder indoors than it was outside most of the time Brrr.
I had some good news last night regarding a scrapping mag and I am really excited about it, I am a little nervous as well but I don't think I should divulge what it is at the moment :) I wish I could say it was to be on a design team but it isn't THAT exciting. Still, it is a step in the right direction. I would love to work for a mag once Charlotte is at school next September but I don't think that is going to happen. Never mind. I couldn't sleep last night with all these ideas going around in my head. I think I need to put a notepad on the bedside table as I always forget the ideas when I get up the next day.
It is pouring down with rain here today, I think Autumn is definitely here. I can't believe I was in the park with the kids wearing T-shirts just two weeks ago.
