Happy New Year

Well Christmas has come and gone for another year, we have had a really lovely time. On Christmas Eve my parents came over with my nephew and my brother, we played silly games which we all love. On Christmas day we spent the morning at home and then went to my sister in laws for lunch and the afternoon before going to see Justins Grandpa in the evening with all the kids. Boxing day we spent with my parents, sister, her partner and nephew, again playing games and just having fun together as a family. I have to say that Justin thoroughly spoilt me this year with lots of gorgeous presents, two of them being a lovely Tiffany bangle and a troll bracelet! I was shocked and stunned to say the least, he must love me!

Both the girls were really pleased with their new phones, Emily spent most of the day fiddling around with hers, she loves the touch screen.

Rebecca was desperate for a troll bracelet for Christmas too, so we started her off with the bracelet and a bead, she has worn it everyday since.

My Troll bracelet, I have to admit that I have added to it since Christmas. We have got a shop in Weymouth that sells a huge collection of both Troll and Pandora beads so it is financial suicide everytime I go to town!! Rebecca gave me the green bead on the end, she bought it with her pocket money as a thank you for doing the house work as I had been having a bit of a moan bless her.

I can now tell you my top secret news as well, I was asked to join Sarahs Cards design team! I was so so chuffed to have been asked, sadly it has meant that I have had to leave Scrummy Stash Cafe but I am so excited about the new challange. I recieved my first box of DT stash just bbefore Christmas and I have to say that I was very impressed, Sarah and Lianne had obvioulsy put a lot of thought into what papers went to which DT member. I am working on my third layout at the moment, I am really excited to be able to share them!

The last two weeks have gone so quickley, the kids go back to school tomorrow and Justin goes back to work, it has been really lovely just spending time together as a family.
