It's been a devil of a week again, but then most weeks are pretty busy, next week being no exception with a few after work activities. Tuesday is 'Parents Evening' Oh joy of joy, how I love parents evening!
The last one I went to, I felt like sticking my head in the oven by the time we got back home (except we have an electric oven so I would've only burnt my ears and not gassed myself ) The story goes: Hal's a good pupil, well behaved, good manners and no trouble at school. I just wish they would stop there, but oh no there's always a 'but'. BUT he could do better, always he could do better. I did point out to one of the teachers last time, that since he got an A* in his exam, how exactly would he achieve a better result? I know they have his best interests at heart but I do wish that sometimes they would praise him for the good results as well as pointing out his errors! Wednesday and Friday is the usual Jujitsu for Hal. Thursday I will be paying for the privilege of being tortured at the dentist and Friday is 2 hours at the hairdressers while he tries to cover up the ever increasing grey hairs. Good week huh?
I only realised tonight that I'd not posted the following card on my blog, only on the Sugar Nellie group over on Face book.
OK, so you know the image is called Romantic Dreamer available to buy HERE and as always she's been coloured with DI's. The papers are Websters Pages and were a Christmas gift from my lovely buddy Amanda over in the States. A ms border punch, a Doo Hickey swirly whirly and a Nellie Snellen flower.
My craft room is now all clean, tidy and junk free but with little free time this week the junk has been shoved in a cupboard until I can find the time to sort it into bin/learning centre/blog piles and finally rid myself of it.
And I have an inbox full of lovely emails, so please forgive me if you're waiting for a reply, I will catch up with everyone over this weekend.
Before I go, the lovely Debbi has some fabulous candy on offer in honour of her upcoming birthday.
I'll post the photo and a link on my sidebar shortly so pop over and join in. If you've not been to Debbi's blog before (why not!!) make a cuppa first and enjoy looking at her beautiful cards.
My candy ends tomorrow at 9am so I will be back over the weekend to post the winner, thank you everyone that took the time to enter and thank you also if you answered my question on candy. It appears you are a very easy to please bunch and are quite happy with Sassy's, LOTV's or Hanglars.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx
