Teachers Treats

Well thats it, the summer holidays have started.

For us this has been a very strange time. Harley has finished pre-school and will be starting big school in September. This is something that I find very hard to accept, my boy is growing up and very fast.

Oakley is also growing fast and he will be starting at the older childrens setting of pre-school in September. So they are both moving on.

As a Thank you to all the staff at pre-school we made little tea light boxed gifts. 15 of them.

Sadley due to Harley having Chicken pox both the boys missed there last days at school. Harley was very upset about this as he really loves it and has recently made some good friends.
I hope that he enjoys big school as much.

I am glad that our pre-school days are not over yet and Oakley still has awhile to go. They are very lucky to go to a wonderful pre-school with great staff. They really love it and I get very emotional about things like that.

We have been very lucky with the chicken pox. Harley has not suffered too much, just being a little restless and upset at night.
Here are some of his pox pictures.

Chicken Pox

I am so sad that My Little man is missing his last days of Pre-School, Due to Chicken Pox. He is so missing his little friends that he only sees when at school and some of which will be going to new schools. He will have to wait till September before he sees them again. A few that he talks about will be Going to the same primary school as him and he is so looking forward to seeing them then.The spots have not come out too well in the photo but they are all over his body face and head. Just waiting for the other one to come out with it now.

Sports Day

Last Wednesday was sports day at Pre-school and dispite a few showers great fun was had by all. It was Harleys last sports day at Pre-school and Oakleys first. They both had a fab time as did all the others. Who knows one of those little stars maybe a sports man or woman of the future. WOW!

What a great surprise!

Oh me oh my!!!!!! I have been awarded a 'I like your style' blog award.

The award came from Dottie and she can be found here.

Thank you so very much Dottie.

As part of accepting this award is ,to promise to share it. I now have to work out how to do that. (I am not very good on the computer.)

I would like to share it with the person who gets my mojo flowing. I first saw her LO's on UK Scrappers. I have to say I love her work and all the little detail she adds without over doing it. Thank you Rachael I love your style.

I love pink.

Just a quick one before bed, I am so sad. As you may know I bought a slice a few weeks ago and I love it, well I did untill now. I have just payed a visit to the why slice site for people with the slice and they have done this to me.

I cant belive it. I love pink and would loved to have had the pink and black Bigshot but got that to early and have the blue and black one. Now there is to be a pink slice.

Its sad I know but being the only female in the house pink is special to me.

I am off to cry myself to sleep. x

Just Finished

I just finished a page from last months Scrapaholix kit and this is it. It is an old photo from when we lived in London whilst my husband was serving with the forces. It was taken in St James park which is a place we visited most days. The boys loved St James, just running around watching the pelicans and other birds or playing in the sandpit. Its a wonderful park and I have to say my favourite.

Latest page

I spent another great evening at The Kraft Shop in West Kingsdown on thursday. This is the LO we did. I love it and the papers are beautiful they are from We R Memory Keepers and are part of the Tiffanys range.

On Friday the school that my eldest is due to start at in sept had a fun day evening. So after work we took a walk up there. It was great fun the kids were having a fantastic time. My 2 cherubs had there 1st ever go on a huge inflatable slide. As they climbed to the top I was a little worried they may change their minds and there faces at the start of there decent where full of fear. No need to worry by the time they got to the bottom they where full of beans, they loved it.

I love these little moments in life x x
