What a SURPRISE ... !!!!!!!

Hello all!!

Well what a day we had yesterday ... started off a normal day for us humans but the cat was acting very odd ...

'Our' cat adopted us a few weeks after we moved in.  He seemed to be hanging about and was very thin and hungry so, after a few weeks of trying to chase him, we took pity and fed him.  With Laura being pregnant we decided that taking him to the vet.  General health check up would be a good idea. We also had his gender confirmed as a boy, just as well because James had already named him Edward even though we did not actually know if the cat was male or female.

Edward the cat
Well yesterday Edward the boy cat had .....

3 lovely cute balls of fur!!
We were very surprised to say the least lol  So I think we can now assume that Edward isn't an Edward after all but maybe a Lady Edward or even an Edwina haha :)

Now that was a SURPRISE!!!!

Have a great weekend all

Love me

P.S I have sent all partner details out for my exchange ... If you haven't received the e-mail please let me know :)

I don't believe it ...

Hello to you all out there!

You'll Never guess what .... I only went and passed my Open University course that I was doing .... oh yay!! Go me!  I am so chuffed with my little self!!  

The course was a science course which was all based with learning on-line more so than from a text book.  Of course it happened to be slap bang in the middle of us moving home and we had no internet for what seemed like a life time!!  I really thought I wouldn't pass as I couldn't really study as much as I wanted too because we had no internet!!  So yeah i am delighted with little ol' me!!  

So .... I think I deserve to buy myself a little present or something!!  

lol any excuse for me to treat myself haha

For the bloggers who joined my exchange .... I have assigned whom will be sending to whom and put a post on the right hand side of my blog ... I have all e-mails ready to send out with names and addresses on but its a little late to be sending people e-mails.  Well actually I suppose it is very early in the morning and for all (like myself) who get their e-mails on their phone. I don't want to start off musical tunes on phones and wake people so I will click the send button in a few more hours time lol 

Well I had better get to sleep.  Cara has been very unsettled the past few nights.  She keeps coming to my room for hugs and kisses ... basically checking I am still here ... in the middle of the night (which is why I'm blogging at 2.30 am UK time) ... waiting for her to come to my room before I sleep because I can never get back to sleep once I've been woken up!  

Hope you all have a happy Friday and a good weekend if i don't 'see you' before .....

Love and hugs and stitching kisses

A lovely ....


Hello to you all!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter day and holidays :)

Mine has been a little strange because the children have been with their father since Wednesday so the house has been a little quiet to say the least but there has been plenty going on  to keep me busy, so busy infact I just done know where the last 6 days have gone to!!  The children will be home later on this evening so I am really looking forward to noise and a messy house again lol 

The last few days I have stitched on Summer Fairy and she is coming along nicely!  Still alot to do but she will be so worth it in the end.  Not alot of stitching but quite a bit backstitch in DMC and metallic threads plus 100's of beads to stitch on!!  Now that will be a task and a half I think lol   Looking forward to seeing her finished though :)

Turtle trot Update


For once I am on time with an update lol  Maybe things are now back to normal in my house :)

Here is my very slow progress over the last few months but with the Easter holidays nearly upon us I have declared it a relaxing holiday as we have all done nothing but charge around like mad fools since January lol

Yesterday was James' birthday and he was a big 18 years old!!  Wow I feel very old now hahaha

For all who has joined my exchange I will get partner details sorted asap .... I'll be in touch with everyone too for postal addresses!  I cant wait, I'm really excited :)

TUSAL and Biscornu

Today, after chores etc, I will be finishing off the Easter Eggchange from Mii's blog and getting that in the post asap :)

This weekend the children are with their father so I intend to get some stitching done for ME!!  lol

Mum and dad got home safe and they really enjoyed their week long stay!  It was great to see them again I will admit and roll on the summer when they are coming back over :)

Don't forget my exchange sign up as the closing date is nearly upon us!

Have a brilliant day all
