My Girls

Hi everyone, welcome to my girls Maxine and Gemma.The girls are getting ready to do the Race for Life today at Waddington air field at the top end of Lincoln. Gemma painted herself with neon colours on her face and arms, and when Maxine arrived Gemma did the same to her, they then got dressed for the occasion.

The final results don't they look fab. They where starting their run about 10.30 s0 as I am writing this they are doing it.

Both my girls are doing this for me because I had Breast Cancer in 2002, news flash just had a call from Gemma they have completed the 1st k, and its very hot, lots of people have dressed up so its fun all the way.

I am so proud of them both

This shall be my last post for a while because I am away on holiday this next Tuesday for 2 weeks with Maxine and family really looking forward to it. The case is packed got the sun lotion and the passports, here comes the sun x.

News News

Well my lovely friends out there in Blogg Land Paradise, I have some exciting news to share with you all. Are we ready!!!!At last I can escape B & Q, I have been there 4 years now, and I have had so much time off with my disability through all the heavy lifting that I have to do,(but they have been brill with me) so on doctors orders I have landed myself a new job just down the road from my house working in the local newsagents part time.

I will be able to walk to work so that will build up the legs, and the exercise will do me good.

I shall be starting when I come back from my holiday which is next week, so I should come back nice and refreshed!!!! and ready to go. refreshed not sure about that cause we have the grand kiddies with us and Ben plans to be swimming all the time!!!

So that is 2 brilliant things that is happening to me this month, so I am on cloud nine at the moment.

Time flies past

My goodness where does the time go, it certainly disappears for me, don't seem 5 mins ago since I was on site.

Up here Mr J and Max, Mark, Ben and Paige oh and me are now on count down to our hol which is in 2 weeks time, come this Tuesday. Got the clothes, sun cream and first aid bag all ready, suitcase's to get down and pack. Then sort out some crafts to take with me ready for when I shall babysit for the kiddies.

Gemma is dog and house sitting for us (3 dogs) she is good, she will be busy doing her last essay ready for the end of her course, its only 6000 words where do you start, that's the question????

Here is a picture of one of my favourite flowers, Orchids, I have currently 5 in the kitchen, 3 of them are what I rescued from work and they are starting to get their flower stems on don't know what colour they will be. That's the beauty of rescuing them, discovering what they are going to be like.

I love this time of the year when things are all in bloom, plenty of blossom around things looks and smell lovely to. Specially after a good rain pour, which we had today, clears the air. The fields all look lovely with their different shades of green and the yellow of the Rape, which has a very strong smell this year or my nose is sensitive. Its the feel good factor.

Well my friends I shall sign off for now and would like to wish everyone and lovely week whether at home with your hobbies or at work!!!!

Well what has been happening up here in Lincolnshire. Ben had a lovely birthday with loads of pressie's and birthday money, he had a fun day as did all of us, plenty of food and a bouncy castle, face painting, the kiddies where shattered at the end.

Me well I am not very good, those's that know me will understand when I say PAIN plenty of it, in fact its so bad I am off work at the moment, back to the docs tomorrow and find out the verdict if I am going back. I can honestly say that B & Q is killing me, I have a spinal disability and all the heavy lifting that I do has not helped. Anyways we shall see.

This past Monday I went to my local newsagents as the owner is after some more help in his shop and wants a mature person, I think I fit the bill being 52yrs lol. So fingers crossed that I will be lucky, more on that at a later date.

Well in four weeks I shall be in Turkey, Side is the place we are going to, it shall be Dave (the hubby), Mark (son in law), Maxine (daughter), Ben and Paige (grandchildren) and Me, yippee cant wait, 2 weeks of sun and relaxing just what we all need.

I have been to another beading class photos to follow, I do find it all relaxing doing beading and Goldwork. I have arranged to have a tutor over on the 19th May for a day's crafting, we are going to be doing Cornucopia, I don't know much about it so when the lesson is done and the work finished I shall post pictures and a description.

Well my lovelies I shall sign off for now and would like to wish everyone happiness and love.

Little Man

Well my friends here in the world of blog, it has been a busy week for me.

Firstly it has been my daughter's 31st birthday last Wednesday, and she was spoilt again, Maxine wanted a Pandora Bracelet for her day so Gemma and I got her a charme each, that left her hubby Mark and the nippers to get the bracelet which they did, needless to say she was over the moon.

And today Ben my little man had his 6th birthday party. He had 25 friends to the hall that his mummy and daddy hired for him, along with a bouncy castle, which was neat according to him, there was also face painting, the kids thought it was great, just hope the parents have a peacful nite cause they where all shattered.

Tomorrow (Monday) I shall be have Ben and Paige for the day, so after the gas man has been we are going to see my friend Tara and her kiddies, who love Ben to bits, I am also going to show Megan how to finish the bracelet that I have been teaching her to make. We will all have lunch then maybe go to play zone so the kids can let off steam before they go back to school Tuesday.

Today it has been really warm and sunny and do you know what it makes everyone smile and be happy which is what is needed after the winter, hopefully it shall carry on.

So my lovelies I shall sign off for tonite and wish everyone a lovely week, and I shall now catch up on your blogs.

Well what can I say, I have been duped by my oldest friends, Rosie P, Kissed by and Angle and Kelly's Recipe's for life.

I have been following them all since Kelly set me up and did not know it was her aunt and mum, we have known each other since meeting in Italy, they where being nosy at our Conway Cruiser, so I said come in and have a look, and as they say that was that, we have been friends since.

In fact January as I call her cut short their holiday and travelled up to Bielefeld in Germany where i lived with my lot and came to stay, this is how much I trusted them, I gave them the keys to my house and my daughters whilst I was at work. Ours is a friendship that is always there, and even though we don't see a great deal of each other, we pick up where we left off, to me they are friends for life.

So to Kissed by and Angle, Kelly's Recipe's for Life and Rosie P, I just want to say a big huge thank you for your love and friendship xxxxxx

Caft Group

Good evening everyone, welcome to a new day and I hope this finds you all well.
This bunch of ladies are the Morton Craft Group, we are all self help who have a passion for crafts. The lady in the middle at the back is Mary and the lady at the right end is Jackie I have known them now for over 10 years we used to do bobbin lace together until the group broke up so Mary and Jackie decided to make the self help group. We meet on a Wednesday afternoon for 2 hours, pass knowledge on to each other and generally have a fun afternoon.

Glenda owns the business and started workshops, pop over to her web site and have a look, she has just gone live on the net and welcomes comments as this is all new to her as well. I shall be over there again next Tuesday for another go at a workshop to make a Ladder Bracelet in twisted bugle's picture to follow.
