We are currently looking around for cheap holidays. We have been saving like mad and fancy a week away in the school holidays if we can find anything cheap enough. There are loads of bargains if you can wait till a few days before so we will keep looking.
Swine Flu has finally hit the first person in our family. My Mother in law has it. We haven't seen her for over a week so there is no chance we have of catching it from her but its scary how close to home it is now. We are wishing her a speedy recovery and the doctor has told her to stay in for at least 5 days so she doesn't pass it on. I know the majority of people have it mild but I have asthma so Im worried about that. I can't believe how quickly it is spreading around the country though.

I have one more lesson to complete before the course is over for me and I am so thankful that I stumbled upon this ladies website and was able to get on this awsome course for free. I also can't believe the amount of things there are on the internet for free. Fonts, brushes, frames etc, that world is your oyster. Gosh Im gushing a bit now.....

I have freckle ending on ebay tomorrow and at this point in time he is still at £16 so he could go for a really low price. If you want to visit him click on his picture on the last post.

I had an invitation to attend a bear show in Austria today. I am so honoured as it seems like you can only go by invitation. I believe the show is in October so I need to see if I can manage to make it there. I have always wanted to go to Austria as it looks so beautiful.

Now am I being hyposensitive or do you think this is what we should put up from our neighbours. I like to think of myself as a considerate neighbour who likes to keep to herself but be friendly so Im very upset someone has no thought for me or my family.
We have had a pretty nice afternoon today though. The kids wanted to go to the pictures today so we dropped them off and then hubby, K and I went round the shops and out for lunch.
I have put Freckle on ebay tonight for a starting bid of 99p.

I was gutted today when Andy Murray lost his match. In the UK we don't have many people to pin your hopes on so its especially bad when they loose. I do think Andy is a superb player though and he will get there soon.
The heat has finally subsided a bit today after a really really heavy downpour and storms this morning. I understand the words tropical weather more now. We have had thunderstorms here almost every day for the past week.
Im not working this weekend and my Mum is having the kids for tea tomorrow so Im hoping hubby and I can go out and treat ourselves to tea tomorrow afternoon. We don't get to spend much time together as we pass like ships in the night. He works nights and I work days so we usually only spend an hour a day together and then with 3 kids you don't have much conversation that isn't listened into by little ears. Mind if we saw each other lots then we wouldn't have anything to talk about would we.
I have been working on a little bear this week. Im hoping to have him finished for Sunday, fingers crossed again.

My little baby nephew isn't very well at the moment. He is constantly screaming, I mean up to 10 to 12 hours a day. My sister is going out of her mind with it. She has had the health visitor, midwifes. 3 doctors and then a trip to A & E and all with no joy. They thought it was colic at first and then they thought it was silent reflux. Sis has changed his food 3 times and had him on gaviscone infant, infacol and other stuff too, none of which have helped much. She changed his bottles, then the teats and keeps him upright more which hasn't helped much either. She got in at the doctors again today and saw a lady doctor who fully checked him over and she wants him to have a days monitoring by a pediatritian. So fingers crossed she will get an appointment soon so that the baby can get treated.
Here he is a few weeks ago when he was asleep. We gently put him on his tummy for the picture.
And wasn't Andy Murray fantastic tonight. Mondays match was brilliant and had us on the edge of our seats but tonight he had a confident air about him. I can't wait till Friday for the next match.
