Ann, I think the problem is that parents do not like the children out playing so organised activities seem to be the next best thing. They have friends round to play after school when they have nothing else on!

Sylvia lovely to see you back on line again and pleased to hear that the move went OK. Unpacking always takes time but I am sure you will get there especially once your kitchen is finished. Hope you like your new doctor. And wireless is so much faster than cable and means you could get a lap top and use it wherever in the place.

Hi all,
Well we've had no internet for a few days so couldn't contact you . We had a pc expert here today and are now going to buy a new pc!
That's the way the money goes!!
I have no help in the house at the moment and still don't have the units in my kitchen. I've just heard that they are coming tomorrow so will hopefully be able to cook next week again.
I hope next week to be able to find my card making equipment. It seems years since I last made a card.
Greetings to you all,Sylvia xxx

Evening ladies hope you are all keeping well I am still house/animal sitting at daughters house. The weather has been lovely here which has meant lots of watering raised beds and pots and then there is the greenhouse......

Should be home on Sunday.

Sylvia, a new PC, now that sounds fun, you will probably find it much faster than your old one. I must admit I like my laptop, means like now I have bought it with me! I would image you will be very pleased when you have your new kitchen and also when you have got a new home help.

Have a lovely weekend everyone

Good afternoon to you all.
Thanks for the info about the ATCs, sorry a bit behind but will get mine posted Monday xx

Jill, I am always late sending mine in, but this month was a first for me I was actually on time!!


syljo Report 18 Jul 2011 21:37

Well the new cupboards came today so now up to Henk to come and build them in. Hopefully the new computer wil come tomorrow.
My youngest daughter wanted to come on Wednesday but have told her to come a week later to help fill the cupboaards.
I have had a lot of pain again with my bladder so they fitted a new catheter this afternoon. The nurse asked if I objected to a studdent watching. I said no and in fact there were 4 students - the bedroom was rather crowded. Am glad they were all girls though.
I've now found my hobby scissors and today Johan found my hobby lamp so will be able to get down to card making again.
Love Syl xxx

Sylvia hope your new computer arrived safely and you are now up and running and that your cupboards are being put up, will be good for you to put all your kitchen things away and get cooking again.
Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your bladder again hope this time they have sorted it for you. Nice to hear that you are getting back to card making.

Keep looking at all the christmas goodies that are appearing, but have seen nothing that jumps out to me I know it is only July, but things seem to come out earlier and earlier.



AnninGlos Report 20 Jul 2011 22:17

I really really can't think Christmas this early.

Sylvia glad you got your cupboards OK and hope you have now got the bladder sorted.
And, importantly, hope you computer is up and running.

Ann, I don't like thinking of Christmas this early but I am fed up of my Christmas cards being a last minute rush every year so would like to get organised and at least know what style I am going to make.


HeatherinLeicestershire Report 25 Jul 2011 17:28

Hello to everyone,

Jo I think I've posted this months atc's, sorry heads a bit fuzzled at the moment, I've been poorly and had my sister rushed into hospital last week too :( so I've either missed things or forgot (not on purpose)..... think I'm up to date with the groups cards though, apologies to anyone who receives late.

I'm thinking of christmas cards too, and will be making a start end of August, only very simple cuttlebuged ones with a bit of sparkle, so many to do with little time :-D

Our little granddaughter was due yesterday (24th) but has decided not to make an appearance yet, her Daddy says she will prob arrive when we go on holiday (much needed) next week, we shall see.

Love to you all

Heather x

Heather sorry to hear that things are not going well for you at the moment, hope you are beginning to feel a little better ready for your holiday and that your sister is improving. I bet you cannot wait for the new arrival, as you say it is bound to arrive when you are on holiday and you wont be able to have your cuddles for a while!!

Not sure what type of cards to make this year, made a lot of cuttlebug ones last year, but cannot remember what type I sent to who!!!!!! Need to start keeping a check I think.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend

Heather, have spoken to Issy and you have sent in your ATC's Also wanted to ask what the heart is made from it looks lovely.


HeatherinLeicestershire Report 26 Jul 2011 05:44


Thanks for letting me know Jo x
The heart was a spellbinders shape (will get info off pkt), cut out off mirri card (very good price from Joanna Sheen, with free p&p) & embossed with the cuttlebug paisley folder, really enjoyed doing them.

My sister is on the mend thank you, Hiapoxic Seizures aren't nice, she has just got to take things a little easier.
I will let you all know when new arrival is here :) think I'll be on the first train back from Devon if she decides to come next week ;-)

Now I see, thought the heart looked textured wondered if it was using some special card, fabulous idea to texture mirri board have not tried it yet will have to have a go. Do not have any of the spellbinders yet they are on my 'to buy' list when I save up some money. Thanks for letting me know.
Is there anything special your sister has to do, or is it just a case of resting and hope that she does not have another attack. You never know baby might just arrive before you leave so that you can have lots of cuddles before you go.
Me I'm just off to a friends funeral and then next week have to take SIL to 2 funerals.

Evening ladies,

Quickie update....... I may be a Nanny soon :-D Mummy has gone into labour
fingers crossed for a safe arrival xx

My sister has to take it easy, she is already on steroids and numerous other medication for breathing problems, the nebulisers help her a lot, so the docs will now hopefully issue her with some for home.... so worrying at the time, but she is getting better x

Thinking of you and your SIL Jo ((hugs)) x x

Jo I love embossing with my cuttlebug, the mirri card really does 'pop' out when embossed.

I may check in later if I have more news :-)

Heather x


AnninGlos Report 27 Jul 2011 17:24

Heather!!!! I am sitting here with baited breath. Has she arrived yet? such excitement for you.

Jo Jo Report 27 Jul 2011 17:57

Heather hope everything is going well.

Have you seen the offer on ideal workd/Create and Craft for the new cuttlebug embossing folders they look amazing.
