5K for Little Haven with an EWOK!

I was having a lazy morning in bed, cathcing ip with e-mails when the phone rings. 25 minutes later I was on my way to Little Haven Hospice as my brother was there with his children to do a walk. And so 10 mintes later Paul and I found ourselves doing a 5k walk..... How spontaneous.....and hopefully it will help with the weightloss. We took the photos of me walking as I want to look back on them in a couple of months (fingers crossed) and there should be less of me!!!!

As you can see above we met some characters on our way, I was really impressed, I think that they can be hired for events. Anyway, we had a really good walk and I found that I pushed myself as we walked quite fast among some beautiful surroundings. Next year we hope to get more people signed up too.....
The top photo Paul took this morning and although a little blury, I really like it. I will be using it for my LO for the Scrapagogo Getaway challenge.
Clocks went back last night, so spring is here xxx Lets hope the good weather is on its way...
Well, thats it for now xxxx

Picture Alert, Big Catch up xx

At last after 4 attempts I have managed to get this published.......

I have had a really busy week with work I am attending an average of three apppointments a day and so I am feeling really tired....... I am also having to adapt to 4 days a week, which is helping as I have found that I need to be more productive and organised with my time. Since we lost our little angel I hsve struggled to get a routine established here at home, but with the increase in days I feel that I am making steps, no matter how small.

Good news I have lost 6 1/2lbs. I joint Slimming World last week and so I am really pleased. Fingers crossed I carry on with big losses as I have so much to loose... so watch this space.

Below are the photos that I took of my last entry in the Majic Circle Journal. I am pleased with it, I think that the use of PINK helps.

The book was larger than normal and so I had to complete the front and back sections seperately. I also used lots of different techniques.

The journalling on the book I completed as a little story....

Once upon a time I deamed that I would meet a prince, and I did and we were married.

And after 6 years of treatment we had a baby girl and she was named Gabrielle.

One day we will awaken Gabrielle from her sleep with a kiss and then we will live happily ever after.

I have recieved my CJ back, I will take some pictures and post tomorrow. I am really pleased to have the book back, it seems like so long ago that I posted it. So thank you to my fellow scrappers who completed their entry in my book xxxxx

Below are a couple of pictures of a LO that I completed a couple of weeks ago for a challenge on UKS. I have some more to load, but as I have had problems with this post I will wait.

I just love the picture, it was taken of Gabrielle when Paul and I took her to SNAP Parent group when she was about 2. They took it for a mothers day card....

And finally the pictures below are from Birmingham. I went there for the first time when I visited my cousin a couple of weeks ago. Thank you to Louise and Andrea, as I had a great day. The bull ring is a great place to shop, I just wished that I lived a little nearer. The Selfridges was amazing, filled with the most yummiest concesions, Hershey, Jelly Bean a little section with food from America. I was a really good girl and resisted.

Whilst I was at my cousins i had my tattoo on my left lower inside arm. I don't have a photo yet, but will have to take a picture. It is of 6 little black stars and 1 pink one, which is for my little star. I want to add the words Twinkle Toes to it and a couple of white feathers...

Well I am off to get the housework finished or should I say started and I am also having to have a little think as their is a challenge in preperation for the SCRAPAGOGO GETAWAY that I will be off to in June. My first time away scrapping, so really excited.

Will pop back real soon as I have more to post xxx

Just a little Hello

Hello, I am still here, but things have been really manic. My laptop blew up and have only had it back a week xxx and I have just felt really tired...... I have loads of pictures to down load, but when I log on it is always so late...... So will try my best to up load in the next couple of days....

So whats been happening; I went and stayed with my cousin in Milton Keynes and visited Birmingham to shop they were yummy, I just loved Selfidges, we also went to Northampton and I had my second tattoo xxxxx little stars on my left inside lowe arm, one is pink for my little girl.

My special man, has built me storage for all my scrapping and we have started decorating the "bonus" room. Its white with pink, I have moved some of Gabrielle's lovely bits from her room wo I have mixed emotions, but I am sure that she would like this.

So, been working really hard and experienced my second Mothers Day without my little princess xxxxx Thank you to my special man in a million Paul, who made the day as special as he could xxxx

Work tomorrow and I have three meeting's, hope to pop back in the next couple of days to post my pictures xxxx
