LOTV Birthday Fairy...

                                                 Hello all family friends & followers.

                                    I hope you are all well & enjoying the weekend so far.

I would like to say a big welcome to my newest follower Cathy & I hope you continue to enjoy my future posts.

I am sorry that I have not had time to post this card sooner. It has been a busy week with my children on hols from school & my husband from work.

  I will add items used later

We travelled down to London last weekend for the boys to attend a football match at Wembley Stadium while Jess & I went shopping at Ikea. I treated myself to a lovely storage trolley for my craft room as well as a few other bits. My husband was over the moon that his team won although it was on penalty's.
We have been up to Scarborough & Whitby this week. It was a shame the sun only came out yesterday on our last day but we still had a pretty action packed time. We climbed the 199 steps up to the Abbey in Whitby & the children took part in a prayer ceremony under the instruction of Brother John. Children were able to dress in monk’s and nun’s robes and Nathan was chosen to lead the procession & they learned all about the lives of novices, monks, lay brothers and nuns

Yesterday the sun shone & we spent some afternoon time on the beach followed by a game of crazy golf (some how I won) which annoys them all a lot. In the morning the kids enjoyed the Military Adventure Park. Jess driving a tank & shooting guns (where is my little girlie gone). We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea & ended the evening with Scarborough fish & chips.

Today has been spent catching up on laundry etc, supermarket shopping, we are pretty much back to normal. I was so cross with myself that I forgot to take any of my craft/colouring things with me this week.

I hope to craft but have a busy time ahead this week as it will be Nathans birthday. I cant believe he will be 15 already.

    You weren't far away from me in sunny Bridlington then. I remember walking up all those steps when 6 months pregnant with my eldest son, not the best thing to do in that condition! Sounds like you all had a good time despite the sun only showing it's face for one day. Debra x
