Time off.....

The month of August was supposed to be time off month, I took the whole month off with plans to do "things!" with the kids, like picnics, days out at the zoo, see children's museum and things like that. Well as per my life, things did'nt go to plan, there was more hospital appointments than I needed or could deal with, the Autism assessment that we thought would happen quickly did'nt start till this month and then we had the terrible news of a death. So all in all it was a horrible month and then I got sick and needed more time off so it's back to work tomorrow and I'm not sure how I feel....

On the plus side, the photo above is of our little one who attended "skool" today for the first time. She needed to be socialised with other kids as she needed to see them eat and try to bend a little with peer pressure, if she does not start eating she will need to have a surgical stomach peg put in, so fingers crossed that 3 afternoons in creche will help her have a bit of fun and learn to eat before the decision is made for us.
The card above is a "request" for a 60th Birthday card and this is what I came up with. The white flower is a drinks coaster that I took from a pub and have a few put away to play with...


Two of my little friends went to big school this week - so needed two cards - this is what I came up with and was quite happy that they turned out OK.

Last card is one for my DH's Dad and one of a bunch I made this week and this one was the only one that I remembered to photograph - two others got given away and some more might get a quick click tomorrow.
We have friends from Australia arriving on Friday for the weekend so planning on a crafting night tonight to play before the marathon cleaning begins! Nite all.....

Hope that it all turns out well - kids are great conformists so hopefully that will work in her favour and she will enjoy skool. The cards are great - love the colours and papers - yummy.

Hi Michelle,thanks for the comment on my blog.I was originally going to go with Ikea oddments.But I just couldn't get them to fit in the space right.
So it came to me in a flash.Lets get the kitchen man back.I am sure even though it cost more it will have paid for itself if we ever sell our house.Plus I now have three matching rooms in my house!!
