Heavy Heart

I'm gonna do something which I have taken alot of time to consider before doing. what I'm about to say was written over two weeks ago but I've now decided to post this as I feel that I need to clear a few things up and get closure on certain areas of my life.

This is what I wrote

Apparently I'm a BULLY, or at least that's what I've been told by somebody I thought was a friend. Her comments made me think about my behaviour and you know what, SHE'S wrong. I may come across as forthright, upfront and honest, but not in a bad way. I have standards that are high, nothing wrong in that though as far as I'm concerned. We all want the best we can get. If somebody offers to to do something for me then I expect them to do what they offerd to do and to do it to a standard I consider suitable. If you can't do that, then don't bother to offer your services. Ain't life a bitch, when somebody offers to do something for you and then they let you down right at the moment wehn you need them. I understand that things crop up that we don't expect to happen but by jove surely that was why the phone was invented so that you could communicate with people and if necessary explain the change in circumstances.

This so called friend has let me down in the past and I've foolishly accepted her apologies. We have had discussions about it and forgiven and forgotten, but today I really needed the help this friend had so freely offered and was so dissapointed to be let down again.

So I've decided that I no longer need people in my life who I feel let me down and dissappoint me and in the process make me feel bad about myself.

So you know who you are. I want to say to you, I hope you find the inner strength you need to work out all your problems and that you have a happy and fulfilled life. Take care of yourself and your family.

Now you might find this a strange thing to write, but at the time it helped me deal with the hurt this friends comment caused me, however since then, I have suffered with my heart again, and I'm convinced and so is my doctor that it is all down to the stress that I was under due to this and the things that happened. I'm not gonna tell you all that happened, but needless to say, I was very very very scared by this persons actions and did feel very threatened by them.

I've had a few weeks of stress to cope with, but now feel its all over. Hopefully this person and me can move on with our lives and on from this episode, don't think we will ever be friends again, but I don't wish this person any badness only love and happiness.

We learn so much from the way other people behave and how we react to it and the old saying is true, 'that what does not kill us will only make us stronger'

I have learnt alot from this friend, and I will miss her dearly. I truly believed we would be friends for life.

thanks for letting me get this off my chest, I do feel better and hope she does too.

Take care of yourselves and love and happiness to you all.

Luxurious I am.

Well, I'm back from the retreat, and it was out of this world, we stayed up late, we ate well, we slept soundly and we scrapped to our hearts content, along with massive bouts of laughter. The girls where fantastic, it was so nice to meet everyone, its brilliant been able to put faces to names, mind you though I'm terrible at remembering names, so called them all by the wrong names all weekend.

I taught 3 classes in total, and I loved everyone of them and so did the ladies, or at least that's what they told me. We did makes and takes, party games and an Auction, I think I've finally discovered my true path in life, I loved playing the Auctioneer, had a ball with the hammer and making them all bid higher for the stash on offer.

In total we raised over £400 in cash for the Charity, which was amazing, Kirsty shed a few tears at everyones kindness and generosity, and I was overwhelmed by everyone.

The girls where very naughty though and got Angela and I a huge bunch of flowers each, but they smell so lovely and look so pretty that we could not be mad at them, to be honest I was blown away by how thoughtful they where. THANK YOU GIRLS, the flowers are now sitting on my table and every time I walk by I smell them and smile.

We got upto some naughty antics on Saturday night, when Kirsty challenged those of us still up late to make some thing to wear out of paper, she had two jaffa mini boxes and made a bra, so I made knickers out of paper, however June, went one step further and made very naughty knickers out of a Licquorice Alsorts wrapper and wore them proudly in the correct manner for all to see, OH MY GOD I was horrified but only because I was nearly peeing myself laughing and we had put my paper knickers on over the top of my trousers and I could not get them off to get to the toilet. What a scream, I'm sure that very soon we will have pics to post to show you all.

I am so dog tired that I'll leave you with some pics of the class's I did, I hope you like them.

These are pics of the page layout I taught at the Luxurious Angels Retreat, this was the Memories class and we had so much scrummy yummy Chatterbox papers and ribbons for this class, it was a joy to teach and I love the finished result. I even had enough left over to make a mini book which is on the RHS LO in the bottom corner.

Here are some of the Canvas examples I made for the canvas Make and Take we did as part of the fundraising to help raise money for our selected Charity MD.

The girls loved this class and had a ball, we even had a prize for the best canvas

This was the feastive Feast / Lippy Chick Flip Book class that I taught, it was a brilliant class, the ladies had so much to do, as really its 10 Layout's in total, but they learnt a few new techniques, you can't really see them from the pic, but sorry its the best I can manage at the mo.
Night night, I'm off to catch up on some much needed sleep, but I promise I'll post some more pics tomorrow.
Take care Kissy Wissy's to you all. xxx

Its here

OK, the Retreat officially starts now for me and Angela, I'm about to leave the house for the weekend and head over to Angelas, Gerry and Ben are so pleased to be getting rid of me for the whole weekend, cheeky monkey's.

Have had a hectic day, running round like a headless chicken, had a hair appointment, Heather was over as left some stuff at her's last weekend and have also been into the SECC to see the fantastic Dyan and Mark from Art from the Heart / Blonde Moments. Saw a few other familiar faces whilst I was there as well, it's so nice to have a moment to catch up with people, just a shame I never had that moment to spare today, feel really bad, as was a fly by hi. I spent a few hours with Dyan though, we had a good gossip and I helped to set the stand up with them. It looks flippin amazing, if any of you are not coming to our little retreat this weekend, then you must pop along to the SECC and see Dyan, you will just drool all over the stand, she has the most fantastic stuff, all the new Heidi Swappe stuff, obviously the Blonde Moments range and tons of other stuff as well, including the new BG paper collections, it took all my will power not to buy the lot, hee hee.

OK, My car is loaded, I'm all packed and I'm ready to leave and start all over again at Angelas, we are gonna be making up the goody bags for the ladies, they are so lucky the stuff they are all getting is amazing, I'm gonna see if I can nab one for myself. We have a few other bits to do, then a panic session whilst we try to figure out if we have forgotten anything then if I'm lucky a glass of wine and bed. Tomorrow Gerry is gonna come over to help us load up the cars and drive over to the hotel to set up and then its offfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff. the Girls all arrive from 2pm onwards and my first class is at 4pm, I hope they like me and my classes, I'm pooing myself incase they say I'm pants. Just know they will all compare me to the uber talented Kirsty Wiseman and Anna Bowkis, but hell, we all have to start somewhere and I have been teaching now for 2 years so hopefully I should be ok, but still crapping myself, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh wish it was over with already. Please send me good vibes this weekend or at least some funny jokes via text messages or posts on here.

In fact I'll tell you what the best joke I recieve over the whole weekend can have one of the spare class kits from the retreat, I know there are spares, cause I made them all up, and I'll give it 'YOU' if you make me laugh.

OK, won't get access over the weekend, but I'll be back monday with tons of pics for you all to see.

Nursery Rhymes We Didn't have as kids.........
Mary had a little pig,
She kept it fat and plastered;
And when the price of pork went up
She shot the little bastard.

panic stations

OH MY GOD, only 2 days till the retreat, think we have everything done, but now have that horrible sinking feeling we have forgotten something really important and can't shake it off.

I'm off work tomorrow and I'm nipping into glasgow to go and see Dyan and Mark from Blonde Moments as they are setting up for a show at the SECC, and have Heather coming over for a quick visit and so many other things to do, then its off to Angelas to pack cars with boxes and boxes and boxes of stuff.

Still have to sort out my own stash and actually finish one of my class examples off as kept changing it. So I'm afraid I'm off to panic some more.

Please send me lots and lots of calming thoughts as so scared, my first retreat that I've helped to organised and been teaching at.

Joke of the day.
I pray the Lord
My shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles
Please no bags
And please lift my butt
Before it sags.
Please no age spots
Please no gray
And as for my belly,
Please take it away.
Please keep me healthy
Please keep me young,
And thank you Dear Lord For all that you've done.

Kissy Wissy's take care of yourselves. xxx

Feeling Better

To all of you who have left me messages over the last few days thank you so much, its really nice to know that I have friends out there who do care about me. I'm feeling slightly better, still feel like somebody is stood on my chest, but the pain has eased alot.

I've spent all week in my bed taking it easy, did not do anything, no scrapping or anything, did manage to give myself a manicure, but it promptly peeled off the following day, typical.

Saturday, I did get up as had a long standing arrangement to go over and see Heather for a day of scrapping, and to be honest, don't think I could have taken another day of resting. Arrived at heathers at about 10.30am, and had a brilliant day, we scrapped to our hearts content, I finally finished one of the class's off for the retreat, one thats been bugging me for weeks, I've already done it three times, but was never happy with it, now I'm really pleased with the results and I hope everyone else is. I roped Heather into helping me make up some sample canvas's for a make and take that I'm organising for the retreat, all the money raised from this will go to our chosen Charity - MD. We even went out for a jolly to Craft Heaven, now this was my first time in this little shop, but oh what a joy, we spent about an hour in there, pawing the papers, drinking tea, gossiping with Carol and her mum Madge and generally set the worlds to rights between us all, then back to Heathers for a lovely curry and to watch X Factor, then off home.

All in all a flipping great day, one of the best I've had in a while.

Now I'm busy trying to get all my own personal stuff organised for the retreat, and have decided to take projects that don't require pictures, as seriously can't be bothered to match papers, etc. So I'm going to be making my christmas presents for the family, have some lovely little projects planned and nice and easy to get the kits all together.

Anyway, my healthy tea is calling me from the kitchen, not sure how much longer I can hold out with this cholestrol free diet, I'm so missing a good Fried Egg, with a runny yolk and all.

Take care my darlings,

PS, ha ha, bet you thought I had forgot joke of the day, no no, I would not do that to you, here goes.


Once upon a time, in a land far away. A beautiful, independent, self-assured, career driven princess happened upon a frog.
As she sat, contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle, the frog hopped into the princess' lap and said: Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
"One kiss! from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and setup housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, wash and iron my clothes, bear my children, and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.
That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on a plate of lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and thought to herself:
I don't fucking think so.

(sorry about the swearing...!!)

I feel so Blahhhhhhhhhhh, I ended up in hospital on Monday afternoon and there I stayed till Tuesday night. I took a very severe chest pain whilst at work and was rushed off to the hospital,

I got to sample the NHS at its best, enjoyed the comforts that they so kindly provided me with, i.e. yukky hospital gown and no toothbrush or toothpaste, let alone shampoo and shower gel. I was prodded and poked at, to be told, it's my heart that is still poorly and to go home and rest and should it happen again, back I should go.

I felt so low, Gerry was away in England for a few days with work so he could not even come and bring me anything, Ben had to be shipped out to Angela's for an overnight stay with no explanation of what was happening at all.

I've now been told that I have high cholestrol and that that won't be helping my heart, so from now on its a zero cholestrol diet, no smoking and some exercise. My body won't know what's hit it.

I'm sorry to rant, but honestly I'm only 37 and I feel like I should be taken out in the backgarden and shot.

I'm now so determined to fix this heart problem, I'll sort out my diet and health and beat this damn thing, either that or I'll die trying.

NO joke tonight as I'm far to pissed off, so sorry, but I will be in a better mood tomorrow hopefully.

Saturday, October 14, 2006


At last we can see light at the end of the tunnel, since Thursday, Angela and myself have worked flat out on the retreat, but at last we are almost there, we have built every single class kit, make & take kit, wrapped presents, done paperwork, got the blurb all done for the website (soon to be launched) and at last we are almost there. We are going over to the hotel on Weds night to make the final arrangements with them, decide how the rooms are to be set out, etc and then fingers crossed, a few more late nights and we will be done, yahhhhhhoooooooooooo.

Do you know I have done no scrapping since earlier this week, and I'm really missing it. So tomorrow I'm dedicating the day to me me me and my scrummy family, hopefully if the weather is nice, we are gonna go out and about, get some nice pics and I'm gonna come home and scrap them, whilst its still all fresh in my head. Watch this, knowing my luck, it will flippin well chuck it down.

Kirsty has asked for jokes on her blog tonight, for a wee competition she is running, well you know me and competitions (for those of you that don't, I am so competitive, its very scary, but strangely, give me a board game or cards, and I don't care if I win or lose) so I have posted a joke and I'm putting it here for you all as well, hope it makes you laugh.

Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the table, he looks into his small bowl. It is empty. "Who's been eating my porridge?!!" he squeaks.

Papa Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his big bowl, and it is also empty. "Who's been eating my Porridge?!!," he roars.

Momma Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and yells, "For Christ's sake, how many times do we have to go through this with you idiots? It was Momma Bear who got up first, it was Momma Bear who woke everyone in the house, it was Momma Bear who made the coffee, it was Momma Bear who unloaded the dishwasher from last night, and put everything away,it was Momma Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch the newspaper, it was Momma Bear who set the damn table, it was Momma Bear who put the friggin cat out, cleaned the litter box, and filled the cat's water and food dish, and, now that youv'e decided to drag your sorry bear-asses downstairs, and grace Momma Bear's kitchen with your grumpy presence,
listen good, cause I'm going to say this only one more time.

Monday Blues

Well what a weekend I've had. Went to the Stonehouse crop on Saturday, and had a very productive day, managed to finish a CJ entry for love hate about childhood, pic is below, sorry its so poo pants, but I never took it and its been taken down in size to have posted on UKS.

I decided to go all altered on it, my loves where reading and playing, hence the pics on the left and my hates where standing in the corner and school, hence pics on the right. I actually did this on canvas sheets and attached them to the book and went mad with everything else, inks, medium, papers, etc. Not sure I'm that happy with it, but its gone off in the post today, so to late to do anything further with it.

I even managed to do the challenge layout for my team, as we are the ones hosting the challenge this week on UKS, here's the thread if any of you fancy a go. We have know about this for months, but I've not had a spare minute to do anything about it till now, and I'm really pleased with the results, considering it took all of 30 mins to do. Thats what I like, quick and easy layouts.

Today was kids art class, and we where starting on the scrapbooks today, not something I was looking forward to, considering none of them know how to use a ruler or pencil, but Heather pulled me right out of the doggy doo doo and came along and helped out, she was brilliant and really surprised herself with how much she enjoyed it. We split the kids into small groups and took them off to little areas, The kids really enjoyed it, and some of them really got right into, making up there own designs and everything, I can't wait to see them all finished, each one will be so individual to each child.

I'm now off to my little room to work on stuff for the retreat, catch you all later.

Oh here is your joke of the day, sorry I forgot to put one in my last post for you all.

Actually its not a joke, more of a prompt for men, hee hee


take care, lots of kissy wissy's to you all.

Sneeky Peek

Here is a sneeky peek of something similiar to the make and take that the girls will be doing on the Saturday night at the Retreat. Can't show it you all as it will ruin the surprise for the girls, but they will hopefully love it. I'm sat staring at it just now and I'm wubbing it. They are all paying to make this, but the money will be going to charity, we are also going to be hosting a Auction of other peoples craft stuff that they no longer want, so if you have anything you would like to donate, please contact me to discuss this. The charity we are supporting is Muscular Dystrophy.
The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the only UK charity focusing on all muscular dystrophies and allied disorders. It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for over 40 years and provides practical, medical and emotional support to people affected by the condition.

Had today off work, and it was so good, had a lovely long lie, but was rudely awoken by Gerry as I completely forgot that Heather was coming over, and I was still lay in bed with her downstairs making herself a cuppa, how rude am I. No, don't bother answering that. Spent the day working on the retreat stuff, but I'm loving it now, I know, I complained none stop about it all week, but today, I'm back in love with it, all the classes are coming together so nicely, I'm maybe post some more sneak peeks for you before the retreat, just to tease you all.
Anyway, Its crop tomorrow and I have not one thing sorted for it, and my room is back to being a pig sty again, so I best go and tidy up and get sorted for tomorrow, take care of yourselves.

Pink Crocs

in recognition of the fact that Jo now has some pink crocs as well, I have decided to post a pick of me wearing mine as well for you all to ohhh and arghhh over. And regardless of what Miss Stinky Kirsty Wiseman says, Pink is not so last saturday, mwahahahahhahaha.

Last night Heather came over to help me out, seem to be getting snowed under with all this stuff for the retreat, but with a few calming words from her, and a to do list, it all now seems to be managable if I pull a few more late shifts I should be all done. Would help though if I actually shifted my big fat arse off this chair and pc and did some, so tomorrow I have the day off, and I'm determinded to finish off my makes and takes and class designs, then I can concentrate on making up the kits, and everything else that is needed. Everyone keeps saying it will be so much easier when we do the next one in March 2007 and you know what, I'm holding you all to that, and if its not, I'm coming after you all.

and for tonight, not a joke, but something that will make you laugh at me and yourselves.

Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D.
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
This is how it develops:

I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the rubbish bin under the table, and notice that the bin is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the rubbish first. But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox, when I take out the rubbish anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my chequebook off the table, and see that there is only 1 cheque left. My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking. I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the fridge to keep it cold. As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the worktop catches my eye they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the worktop, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the worktop, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the family room where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do. At the end of the day:

the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the worktop, the flowers don't have enough water, there is still only 1 cheque in my check book, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys. Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e mail.

Do me a favour, will you? Remind me what my name is please Don't laugh if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!




P.S. I just remembered.


not a true story, but so could be with some of the days I have.

night night, kissy wissy's xxxx

I don't believe it

I have won on a place on the Design Team for Little Silver Hats, I am so chuffed, I absolutely love the stuff that Lianne sells, such lush ribbons, I will be in heaven when I get my design kits. First one due to me is in November for display in December, heaven heaven heaven.

here is the picture I promised you of me and Janet, kindly taken by Kirsty

Can you see my lovely Pink Crocs, I am living in these shoes, so need to get a pair of Aspens in Black for work, but everywhere is sold out. Also notice I'm wearing my glasses, have had these for months, but hate wearing them, but now my optician tells me I'm almost at the stage where it is illegal to drive without them, whoops, so from now on its speccy 4 eyes for me.

Joke for today is not really a joke, but more advise for the men in our lives.

The Hormone Hostage knows that there are days in the month when all a man has to do is open his mouth and he takes his life in his own hands!
This is a handy guide that should be as common as a driver's license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, or significant other!

DANGEROUS: What's for dinner?

SAFER: Can I help you with dinner?

SAFEST: Where would you like to go for dinner?

ULTRA SAFE: Have some chocolate

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?

SAFER: Wow, you look good in brown.

SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!

ULTRA SAFE: Have some chocolate

DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?

SAFER: Could we be overreacting?

SAFEST: Here's my pay check.

ULTRA SAFE: Have some chocolate

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?

SAFER: You know, there are a lot of apples left.

SAFEST: Can I get you a glass of wine with that?

ULTRA SAFE: Have some chocolate

DANGEROUS: What did you do all day?

SAFER: I hope you didn't over-do it today.

SAFEST: I've always loved you in that robe!

ULTRA SAFE: Have some more chocolate.

mwah mwah mwah loads of kissy wissy's to you all.

What silly thoughts I have

Honestly, sometimes I wonder where they come from, but I have the sillyest thoughts running through my head. The other day whilst it was raining really hard and me and Janet hid out in a Services, I sat there thinking its a good job our skin is waterproof, otherwise we would all be squidgy sponges splodging all over the place. Today, I sat listening to a dog barking outside my office window and wondered if it really is possible to talk to the animals and if so could I bark back, shut the hell up, your giving me a headache.

I have spent this evening sorting through all my paperwork, I am a terrible terrible person. I hate doing paperwork, always have, even when I had my company, VAT returns where last minute panic's. Well its that time of year when my accountant is screaming at me to send him bank statements, etc, Actually he has been shouting at me for quite some time now, but today I decided I needed to do something about it. Actually the thing that prompted me, was a search for a hospital appointment card, I was sure I was due to go and see the Cardiolgoist sometime this month, but could not find the card, so a search began. My paperwork is in one of two places. Either in the wicker basket under the hall table or in my overspilling filing trays on my desk, Well I found the appointment card and guess what, my appointment was for the 14th September, so I missed it, now I have to phone the hosiptal to get another one, and no idea how long that will take, which is gonna be a major problem as I'm having problems with my breathing again, and actually think I now need the angiogram to check out my little poorly heart. Anyway, back to my point, I am so chuffed with myself, not only have I filed and sorted all my paperwork, but I have also done all the letters I needed to do, including the one to my accountant, Yahoo, well done me.

Here is a pic of me and Janet enjoying some free time over the weekend, which I have to say was so flipping fantastic, I loved every moment of it, including the lazy time I had at Janets, that girl is so good to me, and lets me chill out completely, I'm sure its the only place in the world where I do just that, and for letting me do it, I love her so much, plus she is my greatest and oldest friend in the whole wide world. Mwah mwah mwah for you Nut.

OK, Blogger hates me again, and won't let me upload pics, so I'll try again later.

Here is your joke for the evening, this one is from Jane my bestest pal here in Scotland, she is a great source of jokes.

Nursing Home

Ethel was a bit of a demon in her wheelchair, and loved to
charge around the nursing home, taking corners on one wheel and getting up to maximum speed on the long corridors. Because the poor woman was one sandwich short of a picnic the other residents tolerated her and some of them actually joined in.

One day Ethel was speeding up one corridor when a door opened and Kooky Clarence stepped out with his arm outstretched.
"STOP!," he shouted in a firm voice. "Have you got a license for that thing?"
Ethel fished around in her handbag and pulled out a Kit Kat wrapper and held it up to him.
"OK" he said, and away Ethel sped down the hall.
As she took the corner near the TV lounge on one wheel, weird Harold popped out in front of her and shouted
"STOP! Have you got proof of insurance?"
Ethel dug into her handbag, pulled out a drink coaster and held it up to him.
Harold nodded and said "On your way, Ma'am."
As Ethel neared the final corridor, Crazy Craig stepped out in front of her,
Butt- Naked, and holding his "You-Know- What" in his hand.
"Oh, good grief," yelled Ethel,
"Not that Damn Breathalyzer Test again.!!!"

It's a good one, had me laughing for ages, hope you like it too. Oh and if you visit, please leave me a comment, I know you girls keep dropping by and I would love to know who you are so I can come and read your blog if you have one and leave a comment for you.

Take care of yourselves.

Kissy wisseys to you all.

I'm Home

I'm Home and I'm tired.

Walked in at 3.45, got a call from Bens school as soon as I walked in, to tell me he had been sick and I ran out to get him, he was ok, had over exerted himself in PE and had thown up, poor mite.

Got home and Gerry promptly left for a few days in Birmingham at a show he has to cover, so won't see my DH for a few more days yet.

I'm so tired, have managed to unpack clothes bag, but nothing else, had to run out the door for kids art class tonight and now I'm home and ready for my bed, so forgive me fellow bloggers but I'll leave you with a joke tomorrow night and the gossip from my weekend.

Sleep well

Nearly Home

I am still in Stoke on Trent at the mo, so only a quick entry, just to say hi to everyone.

Had a brilliant weekend, stayed in the most adorable little Hamlet called Nupend, with Janet, we had a lovely little room outside of the hotel in the Brew house and we where adopted by the local cat, who insisted on sleeping in our room all night long, purring away.

Classes where so inspiring, Emily is so down to earth and not at all into herself, no Diva demands or anything, she was awesome and I really enjoyed meeting her. It was so good to see Stinky Kirsty again as well, but a bit worried I left her with no eyesight. When I was leaving lent in to give her a kiss/hug goodbye and poked her in the eye with my Glasses, whoops. Was so good to meet some friends as well at the class and put faces to names, etc. Really enjoyed myself.

quick joke for today, whats the quickest way to a mans heart, A sharp knife.

Rotten, I know, but sorry, on a dodgy connection and Janets PC and don't want to appear rude to my hosts by sitting on the pc all night long.

Take care
