A Bit of this and a Bit of that

Where have these past few weeks gone?
Unlike alot of people I seem to speak to, I actually feel sad at my kids going back to school today. Why do people always expect you to be flying the flag first day back at school? I love spending time with my two and really enjoy their company. Of course they drive me made at times, but then I drive them mad at times too. I'm happier when they are around though.

We've had a very busy past 2-3 weeks. I feel like I haven't sat down.
A trip to legoland.

I've had a hair cut. Rather drastic for me. A finge and loads off the length.

The Studio launched a new challenge on Sunday to scrap a birthday.
You can view the challenge here. And join in too : )

I scrapped about Ade's missed birthday a couple of years ago. Louis got taken into hospital an hour before Ade's birthday with appendicitus. Poor baby.

I also made this recently.
I bought a fab little kit from Amanda at The Studio to make this frame.
It's going in my newly painted hallway.

At the weekend we went to Oxford for my cousin's wedding. It was so lovely.
She's such a hippy chick and the sweetest girl. The wedding had little quirks just like the two of them. Her white DM's under her dress laced up with purple ribbons.

And this was her wedding car : )

We had such a lovely day. Louis really really got into karaoke and we had to keep him off the stage in the end.
We then stayed at my Uncle's in Woodstock and had a lovely time.
Here's the card I made for them using Fancy Pants papers.

Ade took Monday off and we had a fab day at Chessington. Louis loved meeting Mario and made Ade come in on the photo too : )

And then today. The kids are back at school. Hollie starting secondary school.

I'll be picking them up in 30mins and can't wait to hear how it's gone.
I hope they've had a good day.

I hope everyone is well and had a good summer too.
I now need to catch up on everything and get properly back into scrap mode again.
Lots of love xxx

wondered where you had been this past week or so, looks like you've had a busy time!

for the first time ever this holiday I was really sad to see the twiglets go back, they are such good company at this age!

Love your grungy lo, poor Louis! (and Ade!)

Liking the new haircut :)

I wasn't ready for the girls to go back yesterday, felt like I wanted another week with them, even though Lily has been particularly horrible to me at times!!!!

Looks like you've been having a great time! Your new haircut looks fab, and the pic of the kids in their school uniforms is really cute, they look like such a lovely pair. xx

You have been very busy! I was glad for Lewis to go back to school, mostly because we don't really know anyone well enough yet at his new school for him to spend time with in the holidays. It's been a bit boring for him just being with me! I'm no good at scooter-ing or x-box!

Hope your two had a great first day back xx
