Monday 1st September

these layouts were all done on Saturday at a crop i went to in Exeter. I had a really great day meeting new people who are crafty minded like me.

I also can't believe that next week i'll be back to work, getting bored at home now.

hoping to have some new baby cuddles on tuesday as my sister has had her 2nd baby on the 26th August and they have called her Caitlin Louise.

Friady 18th July

i can't believe that it will only be next week and i've got my operation, to say i'm nervous is a bit of an understatement but i know it's for the best.

i had jam tarts at the start of the week tonight i've got mince tarts, i did bake a cake but as i was taking it out of the tin it fell so unfortunately it had to go in the bin but i will be making another cake over the weekend

Monday 14th July

Saturday 12th July

well i've been to my local crop today and i did 3 layouts of which i'll take the photo's on Monday as it's to dark to take them now. I also done a cricle journal entry.

i got given a sizzix machine plus 6 dies which i've had fun playing with today

i made a nice lemon drizzle cake which went down rather nicely, don't think i'll be making anymore for a while.

Got my date through to have my operation it's in 2wks time so i'll be off work for about 6wks, so i guess lots of reading and crafting will get done

Tuesday 8th July

haven't done a lot today apart from helping my OH's neice move some of her black bags from one place to the other.

hoping to do a bit of crafting this afternoon before OH wakes up so i guess i'd better get on with it

i'm hoping to do a few scrapbooking layouts as well at the weekend as i haven't done any for ages or it seems like it.

Monday 7th July

well i've done absoultely no crafting whatsoever this weekend. I had Philip out for the day yesterday and we had a lovely Roast dinner followed by rice pudding for dessert

i'm hoping to make a card or two tomorrow.

tried ringing the hospital today to sort out my surgery date and no-one was available to take the call so it looks like i'm going to have to ring on Thursday and hopefully i can still have the surgery done

Friday, 4 July 2008

Friday 4th July

well it looks like my surgery date has come through it's in 2 wks time and i'll have to go for a pre op assessment one day next week but i tried ringing to confirm that i'll be taking the date and i got no answer from the department at all, so it looks like i'm having to wait for the letter with the phone number on it so i can ring them

i'm feeling very nervous about this operation but it what i wanted just didn't think the hospital consultant would let me have it done

oh well never mind at least i'll have time to do lots of crafting and reading
