The first for 2012

And a belated Happy New Year to you all. I hope you all have a wonderful, happy and healthy year.

Ours Christmas and New Year were eventful, my boiler decided to pack in on Christmas Day, luckily we were out for the day at my Mum's. Hubby did however call the engineers who were actually there and made an appointment for them to come on Boxing Day.

Emma somehow caught Chicken Pox on New Years Eve. We hadn't heard of been anywhere where someone had had them, so for New Year and her birthday on the 2nd January, we had a very spotty girl. All plans for visiting friends had to be cancelled, her birthday party postponed - luckily she is on the mend and hasn't been tempted to scratch at all.

We did have a quiet day yesterday, Emma crafted with her new Christmas stash and I made this card. I am determined to use up old bits of papers I have. I did get this new Magnolia Stamp for Christmas and just had to ink her. I also am trying to decorate the inside of my cards too.

I did try and make a resolution that I would stick to, once all the chocolates and sweets had gone of course, is to try and be more healthy - now I didn't say not have chocolate did I? - but everything has to be in moderation! and to exercise a little more, rather than take the car, give a bit extra time and walk.

Thanks for stopping by


P.s. Just realised my sentiment fell off - silly moo must not have glued it on! show it shows in one picture and not the other!

Anyone know how to stop all these extra paragraphs appearing? It's driving me mad!
