Yippeee Yooooooooooooooo ! I've been tagged !!

YAY !!!!!!!!! I've seen them on EVERYBODY'S (and I mean everybody's Blog)...... but I've never been tagged with one .... up until my mate Roz tagged me wiv it .....
It may not seem much to the average-normal-streetwise person ... but I was feeling a little neglected ....... nay ........... if I'm honest .......... and I'm gonna be right honest here ................ I was feeling paranoid !!!!!
Anyway, less of my nutty ramblings ........... I've got one now .......... so if you haven't got one
Na na na na na !!!!!!!!!!!!! Only kidding !!!!!!!! So, have YOU got one ?? If not, please post here and I promise that I will come and tag you - you have my word. I couldn't live with myself knowing that you are going through the same feelings that I WAS going through until I got my pink Rocking Girl Blogger badge.

School Holidays - yippeee yooooooo !!!!!!!!!

Well, its the start of the school holidays ... and I've managed to get a couple of layouts done using the fabulous sarahscards monthly kit. I've also used up some 'bits and pieces' to try and get the mountain of stash down - yeah yeah !!!
We were hoping that if the house sold quickly (our buyers have a family problem and we've not heard from them for 3 weeks - so i'm flapping) then we would hop on a flight to Canada ... and go and see as many of my Canadian scrapping pals as possible. Anyway, we've put the house back on the market (just in case it has definitely fallen through) and I'm doing a 'drop in' club at school instead.
I know I know .. glutton for punishment ... but it will help the new Year 11's to catch up with coursework and/or get some one on one help if they need it. I'm running the club on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning 9am-12 ... so fingers crossed that someone turns up to it !!!
Aaron will be going up to Scotland with my mum at some point. I had tried to put her off driving and hinted at her to get the train instead .. .but she's insistent that she's driving. Driving in a car with my mother is like driving with Lewis Hamilton around a GP track ... the last time I was in a car with her she was doing 90mph ... and then she tells me off when I go over 30mph in a 40mph zone - I can't win .... Anyway, I hate him going with my mum for their yearly 'jolly' to Scotland. The house is too quiet ... and I miss his company dreadfully. I suppose I just hate letting go of him - but he's mine and I lubs him .... will see what happens anyway ... yer never know, the trip 'might' get cancelled.
Aaron's cricket team won their first tournament on Sunday. It was an all-day affair, and there were 8 teams altogether in the tournament. He was absolutely buzzing as he managed to 'stump' out (????) two players, and his first 'four' .... not sure what it all means, but he's well chuffed about it all !!!! YAY !!!!!!!!!!
Sorting Out
I have too many clothes .... I don't just mean I have too many ... I mean, i now have nowhere else to put them. Why have I got about 100 t-shirts ?? When will I wear them ? Why do I hoard the ones I don't wear ..... Why have I got about 40 jackets, when at least half of them are too small, and even if I do 'slim' into them ... will I wear them ? No. So its all going. Over these holidays, I am determined to 'downsize' my clothes. I might just keep one or two for 'old times sake' .... but honestly, the rest are going to the charity shop ... I promise !!

I hope everyone going on their jolly holly's have a fab, safe time. xx

School Reports & SAT Results

*blows nose*

I've just got Aarons Year 6 school report and SATs results.

I am just so very proud of him that I want to shout it out from the roof tops !!!

English - Level 5
Maths - Level 5
Science - Level 4A (with a note that he was 1 mark off a Level 5)

He's such a quiet, shy boy who lives in the shadow of his gobby mother. He enjoys life to the full and crams in as many sports as possible - yet still manages to do all his homework and extension work - AND often does more research without complaining.

The comments that his teacher and Head have put in his report have reduced me to tears and I am a jibbering wreck.

I am such a proud mum tonight, and i'm filled with that much love that I think I am going to explode !!!

Layout (above)

The Nooby Boobie (my team on UKS) challenge for July. We had to scrap an achievement using more than one photograph, more than three patterned papers AND had to have a song title as the title.

Cyber Classes

I was asked to produce a Cyber Crop class for Scrapstars using a fab Angel Crafts kit. The kit contained amongst a lot of things, the fab Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl papers.

The two layouts above and the ATC are three of the things I designed, and I STILL have heaps of the kit left.

Stamping Up

I'm sitting on tenterhooks waiting for the new Fall 2007 Stampin Up catalogue to be launched on their website..... its being launched at Noon ... but I haven't got a clue which time zone !!!

Will provide you with a link once its 'live' !!!
