That Monday Feeling :

It's Monday. It means lots of things to me. Mainly a whole heap of catching up on all the things that have not been done over the weekend. I am on the second load of washing at 8:30am. I have taken three phone calls from work. Countless texts some from friends, work and other randomness. I have tidied the weekend away. Monday is the catch up day.

So here is alittle catch up too. I made this a while ago. I got all these cosmo goodies from here. She is super speedy at sending stuff out, which I love!

The pearls were from here. Those prima 'e' range goodies are to die for. I think I have them in nearly every colour! I have enough gems and pearls to last me forever! The ribbon, stickers and everything else came from one or another Studio Calico kit... :D

So today i'm off on catch up.
In other news: (I like that little saying, I read it on someones facebook status and it made me smile) I am meant to be posting on the Sugar and Spice blog... however I can't. Marion has deleted the blog due to our random posts :/ Hopefully now mine will stop too. I am sick of my blog being hacked. So I am not sure when my project over there will be up :(
Happy Monday. Happy catch-up day.

My Treat.

This is my treat to me each month. This kit. The feeling I get each month opening up this box! Ripping open the brown paper bags, I used to try to gently peel the stickers off and save the bags but I just have ended up with too many; so now I just tear them! I thought I needed a LO to explain how much these boxes of goodness mean :D
In other news:
We went out last night, after my shift at L/C. I drank way too much white wine. I still feel rather 'squiffy' and am glad to know it's Emma tonight on tv and I can curl up and watch it in bed. I might attempt alittle making but i'm not sure much will be done. The night was to remember Paul, who has been gone for a year now. It just seems much longer. It was lovely to see Kerry, Leanna, Ben and Scott. It was hillarious to hear that baby Ruby had called Ben 'monkey-boy' earlier that day. It was great to actually do some weekend stuff on the weekend. Thank you to Kevy for driving and letting me have a few too many wines ;)
I also am in this months Scrapbook magazine! Yay! I am hosting the £10 budget challenge. I am so chuffed that peeps have been popping into the shop, texting me, e.mailing and calling to say that they had seen me in there! Whoooo hoo!! (too many exclamation marks but i'm excited)
I also saw the lovely Shaulean in SI this month too :) If you're reading this hun... I loved the LO. It was fabby.
Right. Must go get Ben ready for bed, my pjs on, kiddos into bed and then flop. Self inflicted I know but very worth it.

Maybe I just love living in the past...?

Alittle prima to share... Along with a snippet of october afternoon, making memories and my little shoebox. And alittle bit of me :)

I love this paper range. I felt it would be a shame to cover it up, so I used minimal amounts of paper and anything else. I do love the little

The ipod has been chucking up some great songs today. Making me really go back to when that song mattered. My ipod has to have some of the most random-est songs on there. Some I feel ashamed to say I still listen to. Saturday night anyone?? :/

So today it's made me think these thoughts:

The Doors. There was a point when I lived with this guy called Liam, who was a total arse and I might add still is. We used to watch this film most Friday nights, ok he watched and I was merely there. Instead of going out which is what I wanted to do. He lived his life very similar to James Morrison (apart from the successful part) and he idolised him and unfortunately I idolised Liam right then. Believe me your mother is usually right, if only we listened! Anyhoo. 'Break on through' kicked up on my ipod and I wanted to share that thought with you.

Love Inc - Superstar, DJ Sammy - Boys of Summer. Working at Jimmies. Chris Wortley. The twins... Maria and not sure what her sister was called. Kate. Young Farmers dances. Coalville. Jimmy Deans!! Need I say more.

Iio- Rapture. Chris Gufreys stag do. Jimmy Deans (again). Blue diesel. Vincent Cox. The flintstones. GHB. Stu-pot. The tigra. Being a muppet. The mission. I don't do, yet do do dancing. Free bar (!).

Junkie - Rollercoaster. My teen years. 15. 16. Short streaked bright red hair. Louise Werner. Pedro's parties. The hammer. The riverside. Cider. School. Work. Party. Last buses. Sileby. Orange 'council colour' denim hipsters. Yellow puffa coat. Shed Seven. Ainleys in Leicester. Not a care in the world!

Hot Chocolate - you sexy thing. Lee Bentley. The Duke of York. Sileby club. Donna. Vic. Bijal. Racheal. Pool. Juke box. Malibu and coke. Archers and lemonade. Busters. And of course that film, which actually I can't remember the name of. I'm sure you know it though.

I love how music just makes me remember each and every moment in my past. Good, bad or indifferent. It makes me happy.
It's got me thinking that I need a little ipod type mini album. To note down all these thoughts, so I remember then forever.

Just a little something for you this dreary and cold Sunday night... a little reminder of how our summer was this year... pretty sunny! :D

Every thing on this LO was from this months (or previous) Studio Calico kits...! I am mostly distraught that this months release day will happen while i'm in France :( :( :( I shall be eager to find an internet cafe/ used Kevys iphone. Just to check if I want those add ons :/
Happy Sunday!

I have been hacked!! ARRRGG!

Damn hackers.
I can assure you that porn is not usually on the agenda of this blog... I promise. It seems that the Sugar and Spice blog was hacked and from that mine too... i'm not sure if any of the other girls got hacked but the post I found this morning was pretty weird!! ;)

Well, just to prove I am actually a scrapbooker and not some exotic porno star, you can see the LO I did for Sugar and Spice below.... I used the most gorgeous paper from Cosmo Cricket and those lovely wooden making memories letters, along with Marion's stamps *wub*.

Other than that.... i've been working, sleeping and eating (well, we have to eat don't we ;)) I haven't been making much really. (other than a mess) Luckily though we have our passports back and are ready to go to Euro disney! Yay! Emily is sooo excited. I however, am thinking now about four or so hours getting there with Benji!, him in a normal bed! and just containing him in general :D I think it will be fun *the type with gritted teeth*
