Smack smack bad blogger!!

I have had no inclination to blog for ages... for a number of reasons. Decorating has kind of taken over everything at the moment... quite often I haven't been sitting down until gone 10 at night so blogging has been the last thing on my mind. On the 19th I had my wisdom teeth out, so that kind of floored me for a while. I am recovering now... the swelling has gone and the bruising is now so light it can be disguised with make up, so just waiting for the stitches to come out. It is a good feeling knowing that I won't have any more wisdom teeth problems.
I have also been a bit up and down emotionally due to the drugs I have been taking to try and get pregnant. I am on a higher dose than I have taken before and I am struggling with the side effects.... not fun :(

Anyway... I am hoping that I am back for good now... I even managed to scrap 2 LOs last night. This one was a take on this sketch by Jems over at Scrapbook Star.
This LO was done very quickly, and I am really quite pleased with it simplicity... maybe this is a style I need to adopt more often!!!
Anyway... I must go and take advantage of having the house to myself tonight... well the boys are in bed, but Rob is out... a nice hot bath and a spot more scrapping with a bottle of cold diet coke.... gosh I know how to live eh...LOL!!!

I am still alive!

I cannot believe I haven't blogged for two weeks!!! As the school holiday ends I have finally found time to sit and blog. It has been a busy couple of weeks with a house full of children, dh off work for the second week and mum visiting this weekend... busy but a lot of fun. Two of the boys I looked after go back to their childminder tomorrow, which I am sad about as they were a joy to look after and settled really well... the only upside is that I won't have to read the Dora the Explorer book 9 times a day to Elliot...LOL!!! Adam started with me last week, and has really settled in well. I saw his mum in Sainsburys yesterday and she said he had been mithering all day about 'going to Louise's house', awwwwwww... how sweet is that. I will have to be careful with Harry though... he has started to call me 'weese' and not mummy!!!

Yesterday we went to Rhyl for the day with my mum. We had a great day and the boys loved the freedom of the almost empty beach. I took way too many photos, but as this was Harry's first time on the beach since learning to walk it had to be done.
Here are a few shots.

I have been doing a bit of scrapping over the past week... here are a few sneaks as I can't share yet as the work is for sarahscards.
