Happy Birthday Jemma

Today Ower very own Scanottish teamie is a step nearer to the big 30... ok so she may still be a young thing in her 20s, but she is catching up with me and Jen!!! Now most people get a few nice little pressies for their birthday, maybe something a little bigger if it is a special birthday, but not Ower Jems, oh no... this girly is getting a new house today! A brand spanking new house... how spoilt is that!!!
Well I hope the move goes smoothly, with as few arguements as possible, and hope that by evening you can sit and enjoy a stella shandy or two with your boys:)

I haven't blogged since last Thursday... how bad is that?!?! Well since then I have got my boys back... harry's halo that he wore all week at Mama's house well and truely slipped the moment he got back home! He has tipped the water bowl over, dug soil out of the only plant we have, licked the tv, climbed up everything, had the hamster cage off the shelf... you name it, he has done it!!! Oliver was glad to be back to his PS2 games, so spent most of the weekend shooting various aliens and bugs. Yesterday we went to a soft play centre and met up with Elijah and Reuben... we were hoping that the boys would wear themselves out and sleep well, but oh no... Harry was up at 3:30am, had a bottle, was put back to bed, but at 4:00am decided that he didn't want to be in his cot, and being in mummy's bed was a much better option... meaning that he went soundly to sleep and I stayed awake until the alarm went off!!! Why do I have children that don't sleep through the night!!! Tis not fair!

Anyway, last night I was supposed to be doing some scrapping... but after Lost had finished we watched Primeval, and that was that... no scrapping!!! Hopefully I shall get some done tonight... but we shall see!!! I haven't even played along with HS:MS... must look back to see what I have missed... although to be honest I probably won't get around to catching up! I have however done today's prompt of 'hole'. We have lots of holes in our house... especially in Rob's work t-shirts. I don't know what he does to them, but they look very moth eaten... even the newish ones. I decided to take advantage of the lovely sunny day we are having and took the camera outside.... it may not be the most inspiring of shots, but it is a hole that causes us a few problems. The people at the bottom of the garden have a HUGE German Shepherd dog, which continually jumps up at the fence. It made this hole last summer and even though we have patched it so many times, it keeps making the hole again and again and again. It sticks it's snout through the hole which sends Jaspa nuts, and scares Oliver half to death... we have asked the owners if they can repair the hole from their side but they don't seem bothered.... ggggrrrrrrr!!! I think a new fence panel will be needed this year, and even though it should be a shared cost I suspect it will be down to us to get and paint!!!
Over at Carolinezcraftz the weekly classes have had to be stopped due to lack of interest. This is really sad as so much effort goes into them by Caroline and the rest of the DT. The sprinkle blog gets a lot of visits each day, but hardly anybody finds the time to leave a comment, whic is very disappointing. If you visit there for a spot of inspiration, why not leave a comment to know that the hard work is appreciated... and maybe even pop over to the forum for a chat and to leave some suggestions as to what you would like to see on the forum and on the blog.

Shame about Carolinez crafts. I know how much work can go into these things!!! And right this moment, can you extol the virtues of having children? Prepared to tell me what I'm missing :) And you want the brood to grow by one more? There must be something in the baby wipes that does something weird to the mind. Nevermind, this time next week it'll feel like normal.

Bet it's like they've never been away! Great shot! x

Great shot =0)

Bet they looked so much bigger when they returned and were far noisier than you remembered too :-)

We have the same problem with the fence at the back. Rather crazy dog tries to jump over it and probably never will, BUT in the process I think the panel will come down :-(

Great shot through the hole . . . just thinking what they would have said if you had been "caught in the act" :-)
