Long time no see

Hi everyone, I hope that everyone is well, sorry that I havn't been around for a while but have been really busy, with family life. Unfortunately 7 weeks ago I lost my FIL very suddenly, it was a shock to us all. We all miss him very much. I am hoping to get back to blogging very soon. Just thought I would let you all know that I am still alive and kicking. xx

Off to look at some of your blogs.

Take care Hugs Sallyxx

Busy weekend

Hi everyone have had a busy weekend, it was my DD 13th Birthday, she had a sleepover on Friday night with 4 friends from school and her cousin, she really enjoyed it, I cooked them pizza's and other nibbles and it all managed to go. We then had a BBQ on the Saturday for all of our family, unfortunatly it rained for most of it, but OH still managed to cook everything on the BBQ.

If you get a chance I would love you all to take a look at my other blog, I've added some cards that I made a week or so ago. (Daisy & Dandelion mainly) I added a Hull City Card that I made for my BIL. comments gratefully recieved.

My FIL will be out of hospital all being well on Wednesday. He is rather fed up now. So looking forward to coming home.

Take care and hope to update somemore soon. xx

I'm still around

Hi everyone, just to let you know that I am still around and havn't forgotten you all. Been very busy with work and the running of the house. (Like all housewifes) So not really much to tell you all. My son celebrated his 19th birthday on the 28th May and we also celebrated my dads 85th on the 5th June. Well on Friday of this week my daughter will be 13. (Going on 30 the way she acts.) She is having a sleepover with 4 of her friends from school and we are having a BBQ on the Saturday for all the family.

OH mum is home from the hospital, but his dad is still in. They are both fed up but they wouldn't be keeping him in if they felt that he didn't need to be there.

I still havn't heard anything about my op so just keep on waiting to hear from them.

Hope you are all having some lovely weather for a change, we have had rain today on and off.

Take carexx

Been to hospital

I have been to the hospital today and they have given me another 3 months to try and loose some more weight for my surgery. Hopefully I will be able to loose what they want me to loose and a bit more. They seem to think that I am doing ok, with the weight that I have lost so far and that I look a lot better than what I did. Just still get tired easy. So hopefully come August I will know if I am going into hospital for it. Fingers crossed.

Fat Page Swap on CMPC Forum

Rhea has organised a fat page swap and you had to make something that you havn't tryed before.

Well I have tryed it before but they didn't turn out very good. So have given it another go and was quite pleased with how they have turn out.
I only had to make 2 but did an extra one, can't decide which one's to send, or if to send all 3 and let Rhea have the extra one.

Good evening

Good evening everyone, it's been a while since I have put anything onto my blog, so I thought I would update you on a few things.
I have been to my Gp's and have asked him to refer me for a Gastric Banding. Well to be trueful with you all, I went about 6 weeks ago, I have been waiting to hear from them and got a letter the other day to say that they had recieved the letter, now they would be writing back to my Gp for him to refer me the the Primary Care Trust. (PCT)
I rang them up asking how long it would all take and they couldn't really say. Once the PCT hear from my Gp they then refer me to a dietation and I see them then they go to the PCT and talk about me, then I have to go back to the dietation and we have another chat then they refer me to the consultant. All in all it could take up to 6 months.
When I do get to see the dietation I will tell them that I need this operation so that I can have the other surgery on my sternum. Which I am willing to wait for if they can do this for me.
I have got 2 very close friends (Michelle and Sue) that have been there for me and listening to me when I get down in the dumps. Sue's son's girlfriend had it done just after christmas and has lost 4 stone in weight. I just hope that I don't have to wait to long. I hate looking like this and am trying so hard to loose weight myself but it just doesn't seem to want to come off. I have managed 6lbs but now it just seems to be on hold. I will keep you all informed of how I get on.

Waterfall Atc's

I made these waterfall atc's for swapping
on the Cardmaking & Papercraft Forum.

I have downloaded them from the
ScrapbookingMad Site. They have some
adorable images from there. I have
got quite a few of them now. When you
print them out it gives you 2 different
sizes so you can also make a card with
the other one.

Good Evening

A very good evening to everyone,
hope you are all keeping well. I am
on holiday from work this week and
plan on doing so much, I was going
to spring clean today but just didn't
have the motivation to do it, so
planned on doing it tomorrow. But am
going to a friends house instead. We
may get a bit of crafting done, :o).
Well the school holidays are finally
over. My DD goes back to school
tomorrow, yipee, some peace and quiet.
She gets bored so quickly, I think she
is pleased to be going back to school
I hope that everyone of you had a lovely
easter and didn't eat to many easter eggs.

Have a lovely evening what is left of it.
