Bathroom update

Well the plumber was due sometime after 5pm today......he turned up at 9.30pm! and is still here at 10.20 pm.
I am so fed up, I really hope he gets it finished and this is the last visit - because I am really FED UP!!
On the plus side - I have been shopping today for new towels etc and I bought the most gorgeous picture for the 'new' bathroom. Oh and yes it's up on the wall - at least that bit is finished!
OK I have ranted on enough now....will update you tomorrow!
(I just want to go to bed - I'm at work in the morning)

Sally's blog candy..

Sally is celebrating 11,000 hits with some lovely blog candy here.

Fingers crossed....

After 3/4 hour on the phone to BT the wireless seems to be fixed, however, in true BT fashion - if they actually listened to what I said in the first place, it would have taken 5 mins and I could have done it myself!!!! but hey it's working! So I will be visiting everyone over the next few days!

Anyway, today we took Sam karting at Ancaster! What a fab day, Chris and Sam drove the karts, while I played at being chief photographer - I will post pics tomorrow!

Yesterday, we spent the day at Ingoldmells. We took the dog, went for a very long walk on the beach, then played on the amusements and the boys went on a few rides, while I 'people watched' over a cup of tea with the dog!

Tomorrow, I hardly dare say it - (whisper) the bathroom should be finished! (pleeeease!!)

I am taking Sam into town tomorrow, to get the last few bits before going back at school on Wednesday, I can't believe how quick the holidays have gone!

More apologies....

Sorry for the lack of blogging and visiting! We are having the bathroom replaced and everything is upside down. What should have taken 4 days, seems to have extended to nearly 3 weeks and my wireless network is still up the spout!

Pro Markers

I spotted these Pro Markers on Jo's blog and had to have some!
They are fab and so quick and easy to use.
I purchased mine from Silly Monkey Crafts.
These are a few of my first attempts. I will add some
glitter before using them - I think!

Do any users out there have any advice for using these??
I would love to hear your comments! x

Clippykit mania...

Clippykit direct
