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)

Two Weeks To Go!!!!!!

I am so excited because Mark comes back form his three month trip two weeks today. In fact, this time in two weeks I will be in the dockyard and the ship should have come in. Ben and Charlotte have a calendar in their bedrooms where we cross of the days each night and it is getting really exciting now.

Charlotte is STILL a little bit poorly but she is getting better all the time. I have never had a problem getting them to sleep in their own beds but since Charlotte has been feeling bad she has insisted on sleeping with me. I am constantly reminding her today that she has to sleep in her own bed tonight and I know there are going to be tears at bedtime!

Ben was supposed to have sports day today and the school sent home a letter the day before yesterday to say he had to wear a yellow t-shirt for his team! Well, he hasn't got one and I am certainly not going to buy him one just for sports day and at such short notice - doesn't it make you mad? Anyway, the weather is still like winter so it has been cancelled anyway. He has got a class assembly this afternoon that I am going to that - I love them, they are so cute!

I have done my other layout for the design team call and here is a sneaky peak.

Also, I have finally done a layout that has been in my mind since April of the kids playing Swingball in Uncle Roy's garden.

I don't know if you have noticed but I have added galleries on the right hand column of my layouts and my stitching. I may have said this in a previous post but I can't remember and I can't be bothered to go and check lol.
