Thought I'd share some photos of Jack having fun in the snow on Sunday and Monday :D

We took him to our local primary school on Sunday and he had so much fun sledging down the hills and then being pulled home on the sledge by Grandpa and Mummy :D

Snow arrived here late last night which was unexpected as all the forecasts had said.... none till Sunday and even then just a thin covering !

So . . . no cropping in Cumbernauld for me today BUT I'm going to pretend I'm at the crop and shut myself in my craft room till 4pm and SCRAP!! :D

I did manage to the crop in Stewarton on Thursday evening and even got there and back without a hitch ( with a little help from Lynn ;) ) which was a huge improvement on last week :D
Im already looking forward to next week and especially the following week as there will be "chocolate" involved. . .shhhh don't tell everyone lol

I've decided that I am following in my friends Izzy and Lynn ( another Lynn :D ) footsteps and have become a "crop tart" lol as I now have crops lined up in Stewarton, Cumbernauld, Doune and Dunoon !!!
Any other recommendations gratefully received ;)

MORE NEW STASH !!! . . .

I must stop going places where I find loads of lush new scrapbooking stash .. NOT lol

I have made a few little purchases recently and should now stop before I spend all the Christmas money lol

It's very hard for me to resist Christmas stash as I have a complete mental block with anything remotely festive and can't stop myself ( it's frightening to think what my attic will be like in another 5 years or so, it's groaning with decorations already)

On Thursday evening I ventured out to the crop in Stewarton. I'd had such a good time at the Sunday all day crop and having missed last week due to bad weather I was really looking forward to it. All the girls are so lovely and welcoming and it was good to relax and chat for a few hours :D The journey home was another matter and what should have taken about 25 mins took me an hour and a quarter !!! AND I didn't hit the motorway once lol. Alan has said he'll take me over this weekend so I know how to get there and back safely next week :D

So what have a bought . . . .

Not all Christmassy ;) and I did buy some My Mind's Eye, Fine and Dandy range but can't upload photos for some reason. The Prima papers and pad "too cute" are well, too cute lol and I have big plans for the Tando Christmas stuff ( including large trees which I haven't uploaded) . . . best get into my craft room tonight and get to work instead of just talking about it lol

Checking it twice . . three times . . four times, as usual :D

Have started serious Christmas shopping now, which I love :D and got a few bits and pieces yesterday and today. I'm adding to and ticking off "The List" as I go and I'm happy! happy! happy! Did I say . . . . . I LOVE CHRISTMAS . . . . .

I was cropping with friends on Sunday and was quite productive with layouts (unusual for me as I tend to chat more and scrap less at crops)lol
I also bought some lovely stash which, of course I NEEDED ;)
We did a mini class with mica mists and chipboard which was fun and the mica mist colours are to die for YUM! ( a couple seemed to land in my basket ;))

Friday 12th . . ..

I was meant to be at a crop yesterday but the weather here was awful, torrential rain and high winds, so I decided to stay safely at home, disappointing but safety first ;)

This weekend will have me doing a bit more Christmas shopping :D armed with my trusty "list" lol

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
fa lalalala lala la la

I eventually had my consultation with my neurologist today, I say eventually as the hospital is a maze of buildings and I didn't have a clue where I was going! The pouring rain and fading light didn't help matters lol

I don't know yet if my brain is bigger than a golf ball BUT I do know that I now have "vertigo" to add to my long list of health problems AND parts of my left arm are numb !!!! I've got to laugh though as it's not life threatening and I'll just keep popping even more pills.

My MRI has been booked for a few weeks ahead and I think they are going to give me a complete overhaul . . .I'm sure I heard one of the docs say . . . . we have the technology, we can make her better, faster and stronger . . .LOL

I am ashamed to admit that I left the hospital after having blood taken and forgot my sister Isy who was sitting patiently in the waiting room OOPS . . I did remember about her eventually and went back . lol


Well, I've learned that even when you help someone as much as you possibly can . . . . sometimes it's still not enough !

I've learned that "friendship" means different things to different people !

I've learned that you can outlive your usefulness !

I've learned that the more you do, the more you are expected to do !

I've learned that familiarity CAN breed contempt !

I've learned that making too many excuses for someone is a mistake !


I've learned that sometimes, just sometimes I need to put myself first .

All the LOTV stamps are beautiful and after having seen the wonderful samples I know I'll be buying lots more . . . especially after 12th of this month when the new releases will be online :D
