I know I promised to lift my game last post but then we went away for a long (very fun) weekend and then the kids have been getting ready for school and I caught a nasty tummy bug. So just back to feeling vaguely normal again.
Two new challenges have been launched since I last blogged.
Firstly, Another Freaking Scrappy challenge is to scrap about your passion. I was going to do books as I would give up nearly everything (even chocolate!) before I would give up reading but I have covered this topic many times before so onto something I have been craving for a goodly while now - travel. Esp reading about Lizzy heading off on her wonderful trip and Mitra's trip to Peru - all wonderful and has given us all itchy feet. But the monster house (with the new unthinkable mortgage) has kept out wanderings local.
And Child's Play has a Tea Set challenge - my little nieces were perfect for this.
And I still haven't drawn a winner for my blog hop challenge, that is next on my to do list - sorry for the delay.
It is Henry's 10th birthday today, he is so excited, took a bucketload of cupcakes off to his class to share. He is now in year 5 and seems pretty happy with his class this year (two days in). Meaghan has hit year 11, very unimpressed with having to go back to a uniform that goes all the way down to her knees...
And Matt is starting to consider doing a double degree in Creative Writing and Museum studies, he is a year in and only needs to pick up an extra two subjects over the next two years so that is good.
Ok, enough of this rambling post - come and play with us, we'd love to see your work! Off to make a cake. xx
