What does YOUR name mean ..

What Carole Means
You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.
You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.
A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

Wow - how accurate is this ?!!!! It describes me to a 'T'.

Scrummy time !

Just thought on .... i've not blogged about our gorgeous new addition to the family .... Jack Jnr. Isn't he just as cute as a button ?? He's a 9 weeks old Jack Russell and believe me, he is keeping us on our toes !!! Yesterday he ate - amongst other things - a slug. There was no way I could grab the slippery little bugger out of Jacks mouth, and within mili-seconds, the slug was gone :(

All afternoon Jack was as sick as a .... erm dog .... and I was really worried. However, I'm pleased to say that he's back to normal this morning ! YAY !!

Also on the scrummy side of things - dontcha just loooooove the new Sanoma papers .. The contents of the picture frame above was made using them together with the fabby Unity Stamp Co. September Kit of the month. The whole range of papers (and embellishments) are currently available from and believe me .... i've been buying it up. The papers are so adaptable - i'm going to use them for my Xmas cards this year as the colours are so lush ! The stamps are (as always) available from Unity Stamp Co.
