A lot of nothing…

Yep, that’s been the last few days. A lot of nothing.

Mr A is better – thank goodness. He’s back to his hysterically happy little self.
Mr L – well, he’s 100% better than he was this morning, and he hasn’t chucked for over 12 hours now! Apparently there’s something going around – we met one of his teachers in the chemist this morning and lots of kids have been away with the same thing. You know he’s not well when he has a cuddle with you and doesn’t want to discus the Theory of Relativity or why there are laws or why cooking is really chemistry… He was chatting away this evening, and it was lovely to hear – means he’s getting better.

OMG, they rock! So easy to use – I’m soooo impressed. This one with Mr L took no time at all with this template – it was perfect to line up the series of photos I took of him landing his first fish (the extraction job to get the fish over the top of them is a little dodgy, so don’t look closely…).
And then, because I got so excited about how easy it was, I downloaded another template and made another layout. Too easy. She’s got a set for sale at PDW – check them out- makes creating great pages a piece of cake.

And on that note, it’s time for bed. Fingers crossed for a reasonably uninterrupted nights sleep. This is the best chance of it we’ve had all week…

Catch ya…

    Thank you so much for the stitches. Are they available for commercial?
    I need to add stitches to blog design, I’m in the process of redoing the colors.
