Student Days

Well, Xander's doing much better. He's still not 100% but he's back to his old smiley self again and his pirate ship is seeing some serious usage once more! Thanks for all the get well wishes, I'm sure they've helped a great deal!

So, today I officially become a student. My first course with the Open University starts today (weird day to start a Saturday I know), so I'm sat here at 7.30am printing out my first assignment. Something to do with Victorian women in novels (can't actually see properly to read it this early!). Anyway, we're driving to Northampton for a family do today so I'm hoping to read it in the car. May be a little difficult with High School Musical blaring out though!!

Have a good weekend everyone.

Poor Baby!

Poor Xander's not well! He's been poorly with a bad cold and cough since Saturday, but over the past few days it's got worse. I took him to the doctors this morning and he has an ear infection (in both ears!) and tonsillitis (just had to Google the spelling of that!) and so is now on antibiotics along with Calpol, Ibruprofen and Snuffle Baby! Poor little love looks so sorry for himself and his throst is so sore he can't even cry properly.

So, can you send lots of get well vibes to my little man? Hopefully soon he'll back to playing pirates and tormenting the cats!!

Are You Right Or Left Brained?!!

Just found this link on Jaime's blog and it's had me fascinated! Look at the woman and see if she's going clockwise or anti-clockwise. Rob sees clockwise, I see anti but then look away and she's going clockwise! God knows what that says about my brain!!,22049,22535838-5012895,00.html?from=mostpop

Snug As A Bug In A Rug Part 2!!

Made a couple more quilts lately. The first one I made for Evie's birthday present, if you look carefully it has her name at the bottom. The second is one I made for Emily, I also made her a matching pillowcase.

Today I'm having a scrapbooking day. I've completed one for Xander's book and am now scrapping Emily's 6 week holidays but have a serious case of scrappers block! Hopefully it will clear soon and I'll be able to crack on!

Center Parcs!!!

We had a lovely week down in Center Parcs, despite me spending the first day and a half in bed due to a very bad night with my toilet on Sunday night! Getting me in the car to actually drive down there was a challenge in itself, and when we got there, I went straight to bed and stayed there!

Anyway, the rest of the week was great, lots of swimming, cycling, pancakes, ducks, swans etc! The kids had a great time and were exhausted by the time we got home! Anyway, here's a few pics of our week...

Happy Birthday Evie!!!

Yesterday was our favourite little lady baby's first birthday party! Yay, happy birthday Evie! We had a lovely afternoon, lots of lovely food, party games and bubbles! I've attached a few photos including the blowing out of the candle (which Evie tried to extinguish with her fingers!), Xander taking Evie for a walk plus Uncle Gary and his Mini Me chilling watching Ant & Dec!!

Like Father Like Son!

Well, if anyone ever needed Xander's parentage proving, then they need look no further! Obviously he's more like his father as his mother hasn't drunk Newcastle Brown Ale since 1989, but what do I expect from a man?!

Zintle Has A Sponsor!!

Thanks to my mum who will be sponsoring Zintle! You'd think after me and my sister and Friday nights with Emily she'd run screaming from taking on any other girls but she is a brave woman!

If anyone else would like to sponsor a child, here's the website:
