Yeah!!!... I am back on line, after a week with no broadband connection. I have been going blog hop crazy as not been able to get on line all week!! The very nice BT engineer has just left after getting us back on line!
It has been good in one way, as I have been catching up with all the TV I don't normally see, as I'm up in the craft room in the evenings, but it meant I had 50 odd emails to plough through!
I suppose I could have put the time to good use & caught up with some card making, but I honestly couldn't be bothered- not the attitude I know, but hey ho! Also it has been quite a busy week with me starting my new temporary job, having to get up at 5 am to be on the road by 6.30 am to be at work be at work by 7/7.30 am- hard life isn't it!! I have to get up then to get hubby up for work , else he'll sleep on, and then we fight to see who gets in the bathroom first!

Thank you to the lovely crafters who popped over to Mum's new blog- she is over the moon that she has some followers- now all she has to do is to start uploading her piccies!
Well catch you later, as I have the housework to finish, as I had to put it on hold whilst the BT engineer was here.

Hope you all have a good weekend,
See you soon

At Last........

At last I have managed to get my Mum up & running with her own blog!!!!
She has been very resistant as she doesn't think she would have anything to keep her blog updated with or that her cards that she has made would be up to what she has seen on other blogs! She is so wrong, as her cards are great- all she needs is some encouragement. Maybe some kind crafters would help me out here & take a peek at her blog, once she loads some pictures, which I know she was going to do over the next couple of days.
She has recently retired and is now doing the things she would like to do- and with some persuasion from me, making cards & crafting more(sorry Dad, she's starting to take over the spare room like I do at home!LOL)
heres her blog...Angies Attic

Some good news on the job front..... I have a temp position as Catering Manager at Coulsdon College till the end of term at Xmas, with a view that if everything works out, that there could be a permanent position for me when the new term starts in Jan. Whoopee!!
I would like to give a big thanks to Sally who I have been working for at the Agency, for putting me forward for this job, and also my hubby for putting up with me, while I have been looking for another job. Also to all those people who have been encouraging me, not to give up.

Catch you later, as off to get a cuppa & watch a bit of Children In Need.

Boo to You....

Well Halloween is officially over in our house now, as just taken down all the decorations from the front porch. We had a record number of trick or treaters last night- some really cute ghosties & ghoulies, and some not so good ones!! LOL!
I love Halloween, just so I can decorate the porch, buy lots of sweets( I have an excuse to buy them for the trick or treaters, not just for me, honest!), and to make endless cards, that I really don't know what to do with afterwards! I'm just a big kid really!

I hope you all had a good Halloween, and enjoyed it as must as I did! Bella played her part well, being a black cat! We couldn't get her in till after 9pm - we were worried as there were fireworks going off around the road, but she came in when she was ready!

Catch you later...
