No, I'm not moving house again! Just blogs. I have been terrible at blogging this year for quite a number of reasons. One is that I now have a child in Primary school and, being a 'responsible parent' I've joined... Continue reading

Hi Margaret! It's going well thanks. I really need to take another photo so I can show you the difference. I am really really pleased with the results so far! I shall be updating soon I promise. Unfortunately I feel like I've been run off my feet all year. However, I've sorted some stuff out so will be getting back to blogging ASAP. Thanks for asking! It's lovely to know that people are looking out for me and wanting to know how its going.

Thanks to you both! I blogged again last night for the first time in ages and found that I actually really enjoy the writing process. So I think I will keep the blog a little bit longer and see how it goes. What I'm not sure about is whether or not I should stay with Typepad or if I should move to a free service instead.

Hmmm, yes Trina, Easter Eggs are a terrible temptation. Especially as both my girls got given so many. I'm not sure that they could possibly eat them all by themselves!! However, I'm being good. I have had a bit of chocolate but I'm still within my points!

Having finished with breastfeeding in August last year I had been looking at myself again and thinking that my weight was definitely spiralling out of control. Ok, so I'd had to quit my last attempt at Weight Watchers due to... Continue reading

So I'm seriously considering my position on blogging. Time is short and there's so much other stuff going on at the moment that I haven't actually been able to sit down and blog for ages! Is it worth keeping going... Continue reading

My goodness, how time does fly! Today is the 10th of the month, which means that it is Little Miss' 'month day'... and today she is 17 months old! Where did that time go? It seems to have gone so... Continue reading

Thanks Carolyn! It's not something I would have tried before, but since hubby commissioned it especially, I gave it a go! I was pleased with the results!!

I'm amazed! I have actually managed to get some scrapping and cardmaking done this past month. Wonders will never cease! There are a few things which I didn't get any photo's of; the last CJ that I did, for example.... Continue reading

Thanks Carolyn! Sarah - It took some time, but it was well worth it! Mine is on a long list of other projects I need to do, but I think I'll definitely make some time to get it done. It looks fab and I was dead chuffed with the result. I think my SIL and her hubby rather liked theirs.
From this... To this.... Its only taken me two years to complete, but I finally managed to finish this advent calendar which I gave to my Sister-in-Law and her family just before the Advent season. I have another one waiting... Continue reading

Yes I'm more of a savoury person too. However, baked goodies at Christmas is a definite exception!!

My favourite Christmas indulgence... baked goodies! Shop bought or home baked I don't mind which! Mind you, home baked is definitely better! I'm still trying to catch up with all the JYC Prompts that I've missed. Its going to take... Continue reading

Fun Friday is here again and this week I'd like to introduce you to one of my favourite comic strips! I love this strip for its uniquely South African view on life. Most of the time the comic strip is... Continue reading

Yummy-ness. Yup, in this household its a technical term! I'm sure it is in some other households too, although the Oxford Dictionary people would probably be turning in their gravy right now. The reason for using this technical terminology is...... Continue reading

So while I was surfing around YouTube the other day I came across this video. I think its fab! But I also think that it completely confirms that I spend waaaaay too much time on YouTube looking at silly videos!... Continue reading

Thanks Jane! I can't believe another year has gone already. Someone once told me that life is like a loo roll - the closer you get to the end the faster it goes! Whoever they were, they were right!! I feel like I blink and suddenly another year has gone.
