Morning all...I feel drugged this morning I am so tired lol and got awoken this morning by mum sending me a picture of the removal lorry loading up all her stuff...me thinks she is a tad excited lol. I really need to get moving this morning as I only have 3 hours to go before Adam breaks up for the summer holidays, 7 weeks to entertain him hmmmm wonder how long it will take me to write a post ranting that I want him in school again lol!!

This birthday card has been made for someone who is close to my heart whose birthday it was at the weekend. (You know who you are!!!!!!!!) I got the impression that it was also gladly received.
Anyhow this card is also being entered into the following challenges:

Hello to all my dear friends in bloggy land..the sun has been shining like a good un here and we have been catch many a ray on the beach today its been perfect, tried to colour in an image earlier I just haven't got the humph tonight so hope I get to have another bash soon.
Righty you are all so clever and back to my blog award and yep the lie was that I had kissed Michael Buble if only eh!!!! But the magazines and papers that i have been in is to talk about Adam's rare condition PKU. Also I have written 2 articles as well covering the sad ness of losing a stillborn baby.

floating fairy

Good Evening to you all, and hope your weekend has been good. Been busy this end although I've got another bout of tonsilitus I've kept going and yesterday was great as me and Adam went to the hospital to learn about lots more recipes for him to try and new products coming out and I was so proud of him yesterday as I'm hoping we are beating the phobia of trying new foods and he managed to try a few bits and actually went back for more. So looks like this week I shall be cooking more inventions for him to eat and I hope sucess is in our favour. Also last night after many tears Adams top front tooth came out the one next to it is also hanging by a thread to so hopefully that won;t take too long too come out as well he does look funny with the gap there now.
Righty onto my card which is being entered into the following challengs and also a DT call at Moving along the times.
