Phil made tea tonight and had sorted the kids out all day for me to have a day off.
Im taking my hairdressing back up and Im off to a new wholesalers tomorrow to get kitted out. I trained as a hairdresser but with the kids etc I have only been doing family for a long while. Anyway Ive been doing a bit more latley and have been enjoying it so have decided to go back to it part time. Im just going to fit the hours in to suit us so that Phil is around for Kaitlin and the boys. Im also going to book onto a trend setting cutting and colouring course for August so Im completly up to date with the new trendy hairstyles. Its really exciting... Oh and I cut Joes hair tonight. I persueded him to have it cut and promised to buy him some gel tomorrow so he can have it trendy. He looks so much better.....

Ive been practising with my camera today. I should really be out there all the time because the more you practise the better you get ( supposidly ). Here are 2 of my favorite pics from today.
I love my camera, a cannon 400D but very rarely take it off auto but today I messed round taking about 50 photos till I got 2 I liked. Now I couldn't tell you what I did ( I will write it down in future).

Oh we were also selected to be pringle tasters for their new crisps so we had to have the kids tasting them this morning. They are new rice infusions and they are really nice. A lighter crisp keeping the flavour. The kids had fun playing the online game too.

I was so looking forward to getting my new camera out and having a play but I didn't want to risk it getting damp or wet so I left it at home. I only took 2 pics and they were of the Elephants. They were having a swim and looked rather at home in the pool even though it was pelting down. We did have a nice day out though despite the rain and Kaitlin was so good and even had a sleep in the cosy warm pushchair for an hour while I got drenched. Oh the joys of being a Mum.

Today I went to a very large wholesaler to help Phil stock up on stuff for his business. Well I took Kaitlin in her pushchair and Phil got an extra big trolley. Got to the desk to sign in and they said no pushchairs.. We had been loads of times before with the pushchair so I asked why. Its policy they said as we have fork lift trucks driving around and they wouldn't see the pushchair but you can put the baby in a trolley. Now to me it doesn't make sense, would they see a trolley if they can't see a pushchair? Would they see a child? Would they see a small built person? Or what if you were bending down?
To me a fork lift truck should be nowhere near people. They should close the isle and then reopen when finished. I certainly wouldn't of left Kaitlin in her pushchair in the middle of an isle while I went off looking at stuff so I didn't see their point. I had a huge row over it, not because of the policy ( well maybe coz I don't get it ) but because the manager was so rude and basically told me thats their policy so either you do it or tough. He was soooo rude and shouted at me so I got on my high horse then. If he had been nice and spoke to me with respect and explained the situation I would of said OK, even though the trollies for kids were kept inside at the back of the store. But he wasn't so Im writing to head office now to complain.
I also spotted that their health and saftey sign was covered with an 8ft plastic tree but manager said it didn't matter if it wasn't displayed as Id signed their terms and conditions.
I had to get that out of my system.
Ive been working on getting my Bears website back up and running. I had to ring America as thats where my host is based and I had to wait 10mins (good job we have free internet calls abroad) but the service was exceptional. Its all back to normal, just needs a good update and freshen up.
Frankie and Bertie - 2 Little Heart Throbs

Joe has been on his school trip today to a place called Erddig. Its a hall and grounds and they go back in time to 1800s. He had to dress up from that era and they make food and drink and he told me he even had to empty the bed pans. Ewwww. Don't know who had used them..
Just wanted to put a pic on here of my family. Me and Phil, Will Joe and Kaitlin. Kirsty Wiseman took this pic in December and Kaitlin actually has alot more hair now. We just couldn't get a good pic of her without bribing her with a biscuit. Now doesn't Joe look much better with short hair.......
This is one of my favorite pictures of Kaitlin. Just natural. I just love the pictures Kirsty takes and would recomend her if you wants lots of natural pics and she concentrates on the eyes. Oh I wish I could take nice pics.

Here is a couple more pics of my bears. They are feeling very neglected at the moment as my website is currently down. When I get it back up again I will add a link to it.This was from my range of hairy Hoodlams, I hand dyed the mohair to achieve this colour. I made her for a ladies 50th birthday and embroidered on her paws. We called her Susan as the lady was also called that. This little bear is only 7" tall and is called Leo. Don't you just love the expression on his face.

I have read other peoples blogs for so long and decided it was time to record my own daily comings and goings. Im not bothered if anyone reads my blog as I want to record things for myself but if you do please leave a comment.
Im going to put up lots of pics of the crafts I do, my layouts, my teddies, and my cards.
Oh and finally Ive enrolled on an online photography course as I want to learn how to take better pics. Here is one of my favorites. Not David Bailey I know but its only from my front garden and I quiet like it.
