Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that this Monday morning finds you well, this weekend seemed to disappear super fast,
I am really looking forward to the upcoming bank holiday, we don't have any real plans, its just nice to have the extra day with the family, the girls are ready for the break too, they seem to be exhausted to the point that they seem to be constantly fighting off cold and flu symptoms, sore throats etc, I am glad I was 'mean mum' last Thursday and stopped them going to their football training, the fact that it was still on in torrential rain and the season is over seemed a little ridiculous to me, if the had upcoming important games then yes, but weeks before major exams then no, all of the girls are the same age and at the same important time in school, I wouldn't mind when the weather is fine as it is good for the girls to let of steam and relax with friends. I personally feel that there is too much pressure put on children these days with exams at all ages, with schools so focused on league tables and results, I think that things have gotten a little out of control, one of the teachers on Parent Evening starting talking to Soph about A levels, I just told them that I thought we should just concentrate on the GCSE's for now!
Now onto todays beautiful card, when I was scanning through the photos this one 'shouted' out to me because it is beautiful, bright and cheerful, I know the weather is forecast to be miserable today, so I thought the gorgeous flowers on Margaret's card would brighten our day!
Yellow roses are my favourite colour too, which is another reason it stood out to me, it just looks like roses laid upon lace! so pretty, I can also spy all of our very favourite Scandinavian Border too, I think that has to be one of Sue's all time best dies, I think that most of us own it, I have to try not to use it as I reach for that one every time!
Thank you Margaret for allowing me to share your stunning card with all of our friends xx
Bon Voyage Sam, have a totally amazing time, come back, tanned and relaxed!!
I need you all join together in sending positivity our way this week, the car is in for its MOT on Tuesday, she's getting on a bit now, sadly if it is a very expensive job we won't be able to afford a holiday this year, the thought of that is just horrible as its the one time Paul gets to relax properly,
in that he actually gets to sit and read his book, relax and have fun with the girls, a good couple of weeks of no television, no video games, telephones, just family time, board games and relaxing together! I will be very sad to miss out on that important time! We don't do luxury either, just a basic family holiday!! So please cross everything for us, thank you my lovelies xxx
Well I am off to upload my card to the Creative Expressions FB page and maybe blog if I can!
Love and hugs to all of you
