My Turn to be Pink and Pretty!

Hello there, and thank you so much for visiting me today, its always so lovely to know that you've stopped by and your comments always make me smile!

Hope you had a great weekend. It was another round of University visits for us, as we set of Friday afternoon and stayed overnight in Portsmouth. It had been an awfully long time since I'd been there and was great to see sights that I remember from previous visits and also new sights like the Spinaker tower. We ate in a Pub that overlooked the water and seeing the Isle of Wight ferry going in and out took me back to some incredibly happy childhood did make me miss my Dad quite a bit too :(
Anyway, our visit to Portsmouth Uni was a brief one as Megan has a preference for Campus rather than City so we added on a visit to Chichester too, which seems a great Uni.  I really don't envy my poor old soul with the decisions she is going to have to make.

Pearls, Gems and Crafty Friends

Hello there, hope your weekend has got off to a good start!

The last few weekends have been a crazy blur as we have been taking Megan all over the place for numerous University open days.......we're off again, to Hertfordshire, tomorrow. I have such a mish-mash of feelings about all this, as part of me is super excited for her to be going out into the world and having this amazing experience but at the same time I feel quite melancholy about letting my baby go! This whole experience is also making me feel a little old too, lol!

A bit of a catch up!

Hello there, my very dear and lovely blog friends.....hope you are well.

The last few weeks have flown by in something of a blur, you will see further down the post a couple of piccies that I'd taken along the way,,,,and somehow I've even managed to squeeze in a wee bit of crafty time

I think this image pretty much sums up how I spend a lot of time, lol

This card features
  • image from Wild Rose Studio
  • coloured with promarkers
  • Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl
  • papers and card candi from stash
  • Martha Stewart border punch
  • Sentiment created by Netty

 We recently celebrated our Megan's 18th (she is the gorgeous one in the front with the red hair) this is what I refer to as the "before" picture.......after the drinkies started flowing it would have been a very different picture!
I would also like to add that a few months ago the grassy area behind the gazebo was knee high weeds, the fences were all untreated and where the decking area is stood a 12x10 shed - this is what we got up to during the summer.

The birthday cake that I made for Megan

and finally some cheese scones and peanut butter cookies that I made for our Macmillan Coffee morning/week at work.

I would like to enter my card into:

that's me for to pop the kettle on, and then a bit of blog browsing xx
