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)

Busy, Busy, Busy

I have just finished sorting out a load of paperwork! I have been meaning to do it for about a week but I have just not had the time. I have been soo busy. Not bad busy, nice busy.

On Sunday we decided the kids needed a day out so we just went onto Plymouth Barbican and The Hoe. We had a great time and Mark even took the kids up to the top of Smeaton's Tower. Actually, they weren't really that impressed and Ben really didn't want to walk out onto the balcony to look at the view. The kids enjoyed stuffing themselves with chips and ice cream, in fact, Mark and I enjoyed stuffing ourselves with chips and ice cream as well.

They are at the top - honest!

On Monday I went to a coffee morning at the kids school. That was a bit of a wash out! I don't really like things like that but I thought I would make an effort. I wish I hadn't bothered, I am getting very fed up at the moment with a miserable, ignorant 'friend' and I have decided life is too short and I really can't be bothered with her playground mentality! Does that sound harsh? Good! I am sick of it.

I had a MUCH better time on Tuesday as I went to Fiona Beckmans house, my god, she makes the best coffee and her chocolate cupcakes (secret recipe) are divine!! I am going again lol. Bee (bertiebaby on UKS) was there too. I was soo happy to be able to have a nice chat with some genuinely nice, intelligent and friendly people. Mum picked Charlotte up from nursery for me so I had a good amount of time there. Usually I am rushing around picking kids up and dropping them off every two hours of the day lol.

Wednesday was also good :) Terrie (terriefarrell on UKS) came over to my house and we had a good old natter and looked through scrapbooking albums, stash etc. Great. I had to pick Charlotte up from nursery whilst Terrie was here, she and Ben had dressed up as pirates as part of a sea themed dress up day at their school - they both looked gorgeous! I can feel another layout coming on....
