It is all go ....and finally

Hi there,

Boy has it all been go at our home this last week - On Sunday I took my eldest son and friend to a Soap Charity football game at our local football stadium - guess who was there ...

Coronation Street & Hollyoaks stars plus Rhodri Giggs (brother of Ryan) - it was my first ever football match and was really enjoyable.

Monday my eldest son and friend went off to Switzerland with scouts camping for two whole weeks (with no contact allowed back home!). I've had to make sure all his washing was done and that he didn't wear any of the clothes that he wanted to take with him. Two 14 year olds, and early start of 3.00am to get them to the coach didn't bode well, the whole house was woken by their stomping around and getting ready! Anyhow they got off safely and my house is so quiet - no kids winding each other up!

Tuesday, hospital appointments for scans and Xrays on my back to see if they will do surgery or if I have to keep on suffering!! (repeating slipped discs - three discs slipped, they only took one out previously and left me to manage!) Emma thinks it funny as I have a scar on my back that looks just like a zip!

Wednesday - 20 year wedding anniversary - I am not as brave as Marcia was showing the early photos - but just imagine hubby and me with long permed hair - a typical 80's couple and now a good few years older lol.

Hubby did take me out for a lovely 2 course meal, just me and him - starters and main and then for a McFlurry to watch the sun set over Morecambe bay - hubby has the picture which is gorgeous, but he hasn't worked out on his new phone how to send it to me! will post it as soon as I can as it is a view to see.

Today we have been decorating a bedroom - hubby done most of the painting, I helped "cut in" which is very important lol. whilst waiting for the paint to dry I made a few cards will post them soon as waiting for glue to dry now!

..... this post has taken so long the glaze has dried.... here is one of the cards I made...

Yes it is bright = the balloons have been 3d'd. Coloured using Promarkers.
