May half term

Well its half term this week, the kids need some time to chill! We are going to see Celtic Tiger on Wednesday at the NEC and will probably go to Kenilworth Castle for the long as its not raining again!

Yesterday was my crop here in Northampton....a few new ladies came along, its so nice meeting new people and share a great hobby. I love scrapping its a brilliant hobby only wish I could convince every one LOL.

On the 17th June we are holding a Strawberry Tea crop ! Its in aid of Breast Cancer care, we are dressing in something red, doing a red LO challenge, holding a raffle and of course there will be loads of strawberries! Should be really good fun and it will raise some money for the charity too.

So if you see anyone dressed as a strawberry in Northampton in the 17th June you know where they will be heading.

An Ordinary day!

Today is a very ordinary day, its not raining yet but probably will, I've spent all morning shuffling paperwork around, walked the dogs, cleared up the mess left behind by everyone else.....

I saw a small deer on my walk this morning, he didn't stick around for long, he could smell the dogs. There are 4 nesting pairs of swans on the lake, I can't wait to see how many signets they produce and how many will survive. I'm going back with the camera at the weekend to get some photo's.

I've added a new slide show (well actually I think I did it twice LOL) it contains some of my scrapbook pages.

We are going to Celtic Tiger at the end of the month, looking forward to it although it has had mixed reviews. I'm sure it will be cool!

Still can't believe I'm going to See Robbie in September......oh it seems such a long way off!

Bonanza Fun !

I have just about recovered from my Friday out at the NEC, I went to the Discover Bonanza show. I met up with two friends and we had a great time, the classes we did were fun and we all learnt some new things, so all in all a good day out.

We also met some people from UKS whom we chat to often, it was really nice to meet them in real life!

When it came to leaving though, the rain was really lashing down and we got soaked running back to the car! Then had to drive back down the M6 in a terrible thunder storm.....don't want to do that again!

We did the Heidi Swapp class, and the photo is of the finished project, it was a really fun class and the finished item is really lovely. Thanks Heidi!!

The other classes we did were the Paperartsy Masterclass which was so much fun as it was just so messy, we had gesso and ink every where ! Also did the Smart and Sassasy with SEI class, nice finished mini album but not really a class more a follow the instructions sort of thing but still ended up with a nice album, just have to find some photo's to go in it!

A spring day!

I went walking yesterday (I often do) but today I wanted to take some photo's of the bluebells, they are so lovely and their scent fills the air. At the country park the woods are full of bluebells and fresh ferns. This is one of the photo's I took during my walk.

On the way back I stopped at the bird hide, not a bird insight but as it was raining I wasn't that surprised, I sat and watched for a while, some baby rabbits came out just in front of the hide, it was lovely watching them and taking photo's.

I walked back in the rain, and found the family of geese on the concrete bank of the dam being fed by some children who were fascinated by the fluffy chicks...they were gorgeous .

This week its Discover Bonanza, can't wait it will be great to do the classes and meet up with scrapping friends from all over the country!

The other exciting thing that happend today is that I have bought 2 tickets to see Robbie Williams.....I am actually going to see him live at Milton Keynes Bowl!
