lay-outs done over the weekend

I was a really bad girl at the weekend Stef had some new papers in on Friday and she took some of them to a crop and left some here and I could not resist them. I had to confess when she came home though.
Still you have to have some perks to having a shop in your spare room don't you!!!!

Peace and quiet

Well I am making the most of the peace and quiet tonight as Stef and the kids are back tommorow so it will be back to two noisy children running around!!
No I have really missed them and can not wait to see them but I will be at work when they get home so they will have to put up with grandad till Nanny gets home to see them.

Heart skipped a beat!!

Earlier tonight Stef and I went shopping (about 6pm) and on the way we saw a plume of smoke at the time we said that looks like it is near Dows (my husband works there and went to work at about 5-30pm never thought no more about it got home and took a quidk look on facebook and the first thing I saw was that someone said it was Dows that was on fire and there had been a couple of explosions well my heart skipped a beat if not two or three!!
My husband had been in a explosion in 1981 when I was pregnant with Stef.
As I was trying to ring to see if that was where the fire was my husband rang me to tell me that it was a warehouse next to Dows and that he was fine.
One of the buildings was a Grade two listed building that was part of a flax mill years ago.
Thnkfully I think that it was empty at the time. My hubbie said he could feel the heat from the flames as he parked the car on the carpark and walked across the compound to work.
After the week my hubbie has had that would have been the icing on the cake.

This is my husband,daughter,grandson and grandaughter in scotland this year we ahd the best weather ever it was so hot we had to sit in the shade a lot of the time!!!

This is my son Kevin and his girlfriend Cheryl in Tasmania last December we spent nearly five weeks out there and spent Christmas day on the barrier reef

New Blog

Well here I go again this time I will blog more regularly than the last one( I promise I will try)
I am very lucky I have my daughter living with me at the moment with here two children and also her shop.
Her shop is Indigo mill which is a online scrapbooking store and I am so lucky that I get to see everything before she even puts it in her shop!!!!
Mind you it does mean that I spend a lot of money with her !!!
I love trying anything crafty I work as a seamstress at our local hospital and love sewing so it is a ideal job.
I will post some pictures on here at some point when I learn how to do it!!!

Bye for now
