It's been so long.............

Can't believe it's been a week since I blogged, I must've been too busy eh?

Anyway, it's one more sleep til' we start out on our journey to see our gorgeous granddaughter for the first time since Christmas 07!! I can't wait to get hold of her & kiss those chubby cheeks!!
can't wait to see Dean & Rachel too of coarse!!

I don't think I'll be on the pc again til' Tuesday, (maybe the rest will do my mojo a bit of good!!)so I'll update then with new photo's of Oli & maybe a few of some of the 'apparently' gorgeous scenery there is in Germany!!

Been a busy bee!!

I've been playing with Rebeccas gorgeous bloom kit &'s full to the brim with gorgeous embellies in the loveliest colours!!

Here's a sneak peek!!
If you get these kits from I can tell you you're gonna love this!!
Dean had Oli on the webcam again tonight & also had a microphone on & sent her gurgles to me!! OMG technoligy today is amazing!!
I saved it & played it back to Mick when he got in, it's just so cute & we can't wait to go & spend some time with her next week!!
Natalie is full of a cold, I feel so sorry for her as she can't take anything to 'soften' her symptoms with her being pregnant! She's gonna get loads of rest & hope that will do the trick!
My craftroom is a total mess!! I'm gonna have a quick clear up now so I can hopefully get some of Dean & Rachels wedding album done over the weekend so I can take it to them when we visit!
I'll try & take a few pics in a few days!

In answer to Sally's blog promt..........

With the Euromillions Jackpot being so huge on Friday (about £95million I believe) here is the question. What would you do if you had won the lottery on Friday?
Well, I'd move to California, buy a huge house so I could have family come to stay.
I'd open up a scrapbook shop...... just like I know it's brilliant cos' I did my first class there & I'd invite all my scrappin' friends over for monthly scrap parties!
Buy all the kids a house & car each & Mick some land so he can build again! LOL!! Oh I'd have to buy Mick a boat too, just a medium sized yacht would do!!
I'd hire a chef to cook our meals (I hate cooking!) and I'd give some to charity, don't know which ones but I'm sure I'd soon come up with some!
I'd also seek the best medical advice in the US regarding my pain & hopefully get to be pain free!!
This is all a daydream cos' I didn't even buy a ticket!! :) ................. I do do the lottery most weeks tho & I would be happy with just a couple of million, spending 97 million would be a bit of a headache I think!!

What a weekend!!

It was Natalie's baby shower, busy-busy-busy!! She loved it & didn't have a clue what was going on when she arrived! It was lovely to see her with her friends & for her to catch up on things.

BIL made a gorgeous curry so all I had to worry about was the rice, finger food & drinks!

After the initial fuss everyone settled down to food & general chit-chat, not much baby talk tho cos' Natalie is only the second to become a mum, the others were more intersted in designer clothes & clubbing..........oh & males too! lol

She loved her nappy cake & says she doesn't want to spoil it once she's had baby, I'm sure she will tho!

We saw Olivia last night for the first time since they went to live in Germany, Dean put her up on their webcam, I was so excited I almost cried!! She hasn't changed too much, except for her size - gosh she looks so big!! can't wait to spend some time with her & them (of coarse) in a couple of weeks! Rachels looks to have lost a bit of weight too but, she looks really well!

Anyway, off to make a couple of cards for a friends-friends 21st!

Thanks for visiting & I'll see you soon!
