DUCJC update and general stuffs!!

Hello Hello and Hello again!!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy such a busy crazy and snowed in time!!  I cannot believe that for the third time this month we have been snowed in at home!!  Outside at the moment is so white and slippy it is unbelievable!! Only this evening I drove down our driveway and went to turn the car so I could back 'her' into 'her' usual space and I got stuck on the ice!!  It is just total madness!!  Once again the kids have missed school because of the weather and where we live, which is in the middle of nowhere with no decent roads to drive on until we hit the little village by us!!  I think a move is needed to get back towards the town (plus away from my crazy landlord!! ... that's another story lol!!!) 

Anyway, back to the lovely stuff of stitching ....  

So, my last post was for the 13th January's stitching for Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge ... I cannot believe today (31st) is the last day!!  Others are still carrying on throughout February but I have Uni assignments to complete and I am also taking part in Letters of the Month challenge for February so I do not wish to over do it with promises and then not fulfill anything!!  Uni stuff is a must, the rest is fun!!  :)

Quite a long list there!!  I should have done another update in between this one and last post but I just never got the chance lol  

I have really enjoyed taking part in this challenge in memory of Debbie!  I certainly will take part next year if Linda is running it but I will be a lot more organised next year lol!!  

I am sure I had a lot more to say but I think there is enough words on this post for now lol!!  Plus I want to post this before February arrives in a few minutes time haha!!  Cannot post a January challenge in February now lol ....

Have fun a be be safe in this terrible weather!!

Bye for now
Love and hugs

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!!

I have spent a few days stitching on Round Robins and SAL's so there are not too may photos to show!  Plus I cannot show the RR's just yet :)  Need to keep them as a surprise for the recipients :)

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
Me xxxxx
