Just too many breakdowns!!

This year has been beyond a joke!! REALLY Most of our larger appliances have died over the past year starting last Christmas with the Cooker. We have also "lost" the fridge, a car, Nat's TV,a kettle, toaster and now a washing machine. Most were round 10 years (or more) old so i shouldn't complain too much . Yesterday was quite distraught though as while taking the washing machine to the skip, my, just past it's MOT and recently serviced car, broke down and is still refusing to work. This morning Derek noticed that his window screen on his car was letting in too much rain so will need to be replaced ASAP ...this close to Christmas my car will just have to wait ..THAT i am miffed about.
I am so lucky as my neighbour has given me her old washing machine to use till i can buy a new one. We SHALL wear clean clothes! LOL
Sooooooooooooooooooo not that much scrapping OR card making done then. I have cooked this morning ( made a stew for tea, banana Cinnamon pancakesfor bekki and two cakes,one for the freezer) And cleaner the cooker (twice..long story).
Hopefully next time i post will be happier and more productive (scrap wise)
Enjoy the little bit of the weekend left xx

My Darling Boy had his hair straightened to day at school for children in need and managed to raise £45 on the day :) . I have to say that the photos isn't that great as it has been printed onto copy paper and scanned.

New moon is out today and my lucky niece has tickets and is watching it as i type! Although i do have a big soft spot for Jacob, I AM team Edward :D Will hopefully see it soon myself.

Happy Birthday Nets!

She'll probably tell me off for posting photos LOL. This was
taken in the summer hols .

And this was at the weekend at the ATDML retreat. I will post more at the weekend. I have been too busy in the mornings to photograph my layouts etc ( i managed four- which is amazing for me!). We had the most wonderful time.
I also attended a counselling course on the Friday which was great but it was manic and i am still so tired.

Sorry MIA

Not done much in the way of scrapping recently...Lost my MOJO for a while there. Felt a bit low with personal life taking a big knock recently but am slowly getting back to "old me"
I am off on a counselling course tomorrow in London for the day. My WONDERFUL kind sister Steph is meeting me off my train and travelling with me to the venue..THEN, picking me up and taking me back to catch the train back. WHO else would do that!!??! If you read this Steph, I love you to bits and am really looking forward to seeing you XX
On the way home i am getting off the train at Colchester and going to the Fab ATDML retreat where my sis Nets will be waiting for me after picking up my "stuff" for me on the way...I am SO lucky to have such wonderful caring sisters...sigh.
I promise to scrap, laugh , and eat and drink fab stuff with amazing to follow :) :) :):)
