The camping weekend...

Which I didn't go on as it consisted of, 2 blokes, 2 youngsters and 2 dogs - and, most importantly RAIN!!! Suffice it to say that wasn't a combo I wanted to be a part off so I stayed at home...and completed THIS!!!! Hoorah!!!

My son has now claimed him for his bed/room.

This was the last card that I had made (the one for my pal's b'day) It was a pure copy from a Crat Stamper Magazine - Junes's I think.

And, here are the dogs recovering after their wet and soggy camping weekend - Kevin the Cat really missed them - think he must be asking them all about it and the dogs just haven't even got the energy to lift their heads in response!!

Apart from completing my Ted - I spent Saturday watching DVD's - you know, the ones where your OH pulls his face when you suggest viewing them?

I watched - Legally Blonde 1, Legally Blonde 2 - Red White & Blue, Sex and the City 1, Sex and the City 2 and finally The Time Travellers Wife which although confusing and that it reduced me to tears too, but it was lovely. Was shattered after all that watching and had managed to consume something probably in the region of 10,000 calories from Friday night to Saturday night. So, I've joined Weight Watchers and boy was that a shocker for Monday morning. Don't have the courage to discuss this further at the moment, when I start making the reductions I shall write about it!!!

Of to London, this Friday till Saturday to watch my Brother in the 'Great London Swim' - it's another 'open water' event and will follow pretty much the same as the 'Great Salford Swim' -should be good and will be fun to finally take my son down to see London - briefly. Am meeting up with Brother and family but this time the parents are coming too.

More to follow
