DUCJC update and Joan Elliott SAL ... plus a funny slip up lol

Good Evening bloggers,

I hope you are all well and for those of you with the snow falling I hope you are not snowed in like we are!!  We have had a fun week with the snow and the school has even been closed on one occasion.

On Friday there was that much snow at school bus run time that we decided going out at a silly time in the morning in a fresh heavy snow fall was a little silly, if not dangerous!!  So a few hours later after a few cars had been up and down our road James and I decided to venture down to the shop as wee needed milk (and maybe some chocolate lol) Well we got to the shop and half way up our road home the car got stuck!!  James being the practical and forward thinking person he is had actually brought a spade lol  So dig dig dig to get the car unstuck ... but the car still wouldn't budge on the slippy road!  Needless to say I went head over heals on the slippy road lol James just laughed and laughed then took photos!!  Thanks James hahaha!! we left the car, walked home and then came back a few hours later once the snow started to melt.  Thankfully we got the car home in time because then it started snowing heavier ... now we are under about 8 inches of snow!!  School on Monday is looking like another no-go!!  

I just could not get up for laughing!!

My participation in Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC) is going good!!

Day 2 and 3 of Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge

Hello to you all!

I hope your first week of January is going well :)

I haven't been up to much this last couple of days other than a little bit of shopping and stitching, of course when I'm not looking after my little ones!!  Phew I'll be glad when school starts again on Tuesday lol

Here is Day 2 and Day 3 of DUCJC2015 ...

Day 2 is the full word of Teacher
Day 3 is half a teacher lol

I had to stop of a little while to make food for the kiddies because of course after only eating an hour before they were all hungry again haha ... I just don't know where they put it all!!

So after food I carried on with Day 1 stitching because I wish to complete asap as it is a gift :)

I hope you all stay fit and healthy and enjoy the weekend :)

Lots of stitching and crafting love

Best Day E V E R :)

Merry Christmas to you all!!  I hope you had a fab day :)  

We had the most brilliant day :D

Abby had a brilliant 1st Christmas :)

Everyone is very happy and content :)  Other than Christmas Dinner I planned nothing and we just 'went with the flow' of the moment.   I think the highlight of the day was Katie opening her present off James!!  The squeals of delight at her Frozen songs CD and the tears of joy completely took everyone by surprise lol  She was just so happy and could not contain herself at all .... bless her ;) She was so happy and quik to run off to her CD player that I never even got chance to take a photo haha!!

Christmas Eve
Cara and Katie



Erm .... the mess ... with Ryan and headless Mark lol

My 'Under the tree present' from James ...
Such a sweetly written gift tag :)

last but not least ...
Baby Abby :)
Hope you all had a great day too xxxx

Take care and 'see you soon'

Christmas wishes and love

All went pear shaped :(

Hello fellow bloggers :)

Well the last few weeks has seen us all drop like flies ... germs germs and more germs :(  Cara ended up with conjunctivitis as well so lots of TLC given and my reward ... I got every single germ the kids had all rolled into one, including the conjunctivitis!!  I must say I have been in a bad way for about 10 days now :(   I am starting to hate winter time!!

Today was marks 9th birthday and I was in no shape to put on the birthday show like I normally do so we are going to have the birthday celebrations in full form after Christmas!!  We had cake, jelly, presents etc today but I normally do a birthday tea but with being so ill I thought better off it in case I passed germs back around!!  I am all congested and I can hardly hear so all I can say is i will never take my hearing or eye sight for granted because the last week or so I have had little use of both and it is not very pleasant at all :( 

Stitching has been so little other than finishing off two little ornaments for Cara's teachers.  I was meant to be doing 10 of them for all the teachers and helpers but not being able to see and trying to stitch was a little impossible lol  

With luck I will be near or at full health for Christmas!!  Plus back to blogging on a very regular basis next year...  I have planned what i am doing next year though so I have still thought about my stitching :)

See here for what my plans are! 

On a great note Katie made the school choir and they did a show with our local high school and I must say WOW  They were all fantastic and yes a shed many a tear as I saw her on the stage at the High school :)  It was just so amazing!!  

Ready for Choir Concert

The last week we got snowed in and the kids had a great day outside lol  Great day had by all

Conor in the snow as it started to fall!

Tyre tracks after I tried 3 times to get up the
driveway!!  See them slide marks eeek
Pure ice under that snow
Abby enjoying snowballs thrown at her lol
Mr Snowman :)
Well If I cant get on my blog before Christmas, I hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas

Love and hugs
