Birmingham trip

We took the children and my mum to Birmingham ,we knew it was cold but the canal was covered in sheets of ice and we stood and watched the ducks slip slide across it !.We wandered around the German Christmas Market enjoying the sights and smells.

We went on the Mail Wheel-I can tell you now , this is not going to become a tradition- I hated it !! I've been on the london eye twice without a problem but what i was not expecting was for the little pods to rock !!and as the children moved to see the sights of Birmingham lit up it rocked even more !!


christmas time

I hope you have all had a good christmas, we certainly have.

We had all the family to dinner and with the kitchen now extended , all fitted around the table comfortably.The children were very happy with their presents and apart from a remote controlled dragonfly malfunction everything worked as it should.

All Bundled Up

The December Scrapagogo Kit is arriving on members doorsteps as I type,and what a kit this is,the bright fresh colours and amazing embellishments had me creating in no time.
I know I say it every month but this has to be my favourite so far.

The free hybrids you can download co ordinate beautifully with the kit and make it stretch even further.

busy day

Yesterday Daniel was 15 !!
Happy Birthday Son x
I feel that can't be right ,where have those 15 years gone !

In the evening Harriet took part in a Young Voices concert at Birminghams NIA.

Hundreds of school children from around the midlands came together as One choir to perform together having spent months working on the songs at school beforehand.

Wow what a night the arena was packed and it was obvious the children were having the best time.We could see Harriet and her school mates from where we were all sitting but had taken binoculars just incase - it's a big place ! Sx

starting to feel christmassy

in the past week i have attended 2 christingle services ,first with my beaver scouts then with Harriets cub pack. I just love it when they turn down the lights and stand gazing at the candle flames.

I managed to capture this photo of Harriet .

busy couple of weeks...

I know being busy is not a good excuse not to blog ,but are days getting shorter or am I just getting slower ?!
Iwas lucky enough to get a weekend away with some great scrapping friends in a cottage near shrewsbury.What fun we had playing games ,eating loads,talking lots,dressing up and oh yes scrapping !
this house was so suitable for us,with plenty of bedrooms and great scrapping space too.

On serendipity sunday ,we all dressed up in our rainbow colours-mine was GOLD !! and managed a quick group shot before the heavens opened !

All I can say is roll on next year .
