ok, so the flu has gone


the sore throat lasted 2 weeks and was getting to be hugely annoying. but looks like it may have finally gone, and i'm just left being a bit bunged up.. joy:)

next week will be a change as i'm increasing my hours at work. so i'll be back in on a friday - more money =good, less time for me = bad. but them's the breaks.

finally printed out some recent photos. printer looks like it needs cleaning though, as it's not brilliant quality. but at least i did something, and i can't remember the last time i edited any photos let alone printed them.
still not back into large scrapbook layouts - but the mojo is getting back to full levels. still working on some mini books for the moment,and i've got another couple of projects in the pipeline for peeps who are currently expecting babies.

off to kill some more time before our visitors arrive.

ok, so snow interuppted play..

hideous snow whilst we were away at Centreparcs in longleat. very picturesque, but it did mean we didn't get out and about as much as we would have liked, or made the most of the parc - but it was a nice week off, and it was back with a bump last week at work!
(same old, same old, blah blah blah)

we did also visit family whilst we were down that way, and we got to meet the new addition to the family - My nephew Ewan. very sweet - why do they always look like they know so much when they're only a few days old?

managed to get out and visit the local sights for one day - Stonehenge (it was closed - no i jest not!) then from one end of the cultural spectrum to the other - Little Chef!
it was a bit out of our way, but we zoomed up there for lunch - it's the one that Heston Bloomin'eck has done over.
have to say, the food was fantastic, staff brilliant, and the place was very well done ( yes the toilets sing to you and it smelt of marzipan!!) and instead of the lollipop at the end you get a bag of jelly belly beans:)

have been trying to do a few more crafty things - made a start on a 2009 mini album - thought i'd do it month by month if possible, rather than leaving it till the end like normal.
i haven't done any layouts in so long, it's scary trying to go back to them, but i do at least feel i've got some photos and stories i want to portray now. whereas before, i'd become a bit bored with what i had.
So, i'm going to try putting the story together first, and then work it from there. normally i go from the photo first.
but we'll see, i'm the great procrastinator!
