Just a quick howdy!

Well, I'm not good at keeping up with this blogging lark am I?
Work has been hellish, we have had a swap round in the office and it's not going well. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold it all in before I explode!! I have had a few arguements already and it's just stressful ;)
Anyhow. In four and a half weeks.... It's the GoGoGetaway!! Yay! I'm so excited. I thought I needed a break last year :) but this... !
I'm thinking about packing already :)
I've been making too:

This was with my January GoGo kit along with a few bits I've found on a big clear out.

This is one from my studio calico kit :) I love that pic of Benji...!

Well, that's it from me. I'm hoping work gets easier and less stressful although I'm not sure how that is possible really... Some people are just good delegators and do little themselves ;) all I keep thinking is ... less than 30 days til GoGo!!!

Where does time go? It seems all I do is chase my tail lately!! :)

I have had three lovely kits delivered though - Noel Mignon, Studio Calico and Scrapagogo... Each of them amazing!

I have also been making :) I'm not sure how these pictures will turn out as I'm posting from my iPhone but here goes: !

This was a mixture of Studio Calico goodies, new and old. I used my new jenni bowlin ink pads too... You do NEED them!!

I used loads of primarni jewellery on this one. I just broke it up... The large pink flower was from a £2 bracelet that had about 8 of these babies on there :)

Off to a craft fair in Braintree on Saturday, that's after working 06:30 til 10:30... Can't say I'm enjoying work but i'm grateful to have a job, two girls got made redundant today :(

Where have I been...

I guess you've all left me, seens as I haven't posted for like an age :( Life here has been busier than ever. I am still making though :D
I was told before Christmas that I would no longer have my job come March the 31st, as they have deemed it cheaper for a call centre to do my job... I'm sure they'll want to be helping old ladies get their jim-jams on at near on midnight ;) Still, they know best *ahem* and so I had that nonsense to deal with. Luckily, I was offered a part time job there in the day, so I am now getting Benji childminded for two hours a day to make it possibly. Its not the exact way that I wanted it to happen but I needed a job, so needs must!
So, I have been working 3 jobs, although for only one place -its driving me mad! I am so tired. The past four weeks, i've worked 28 days. Yes! Everyday each week. Luckily, I have managed to give up most of my out of hours :) and so that will ease my day job and my supervisior role. I might even manage some time for scrapping!
So far this year, scrapping has taken a back seat and i've made only two layouts. I'm hoping now my hours are reducing and i'm adjusting to being back at work in the day and having to get myself and two kiddos ready for work and schoolio!
I'm hoping that now we're into February and the house is in alittle more order... I spent the whole day cleaning today! My one day off and I scrubbed all day. Each of my babies are sleeping in gleaming rooms with cosy, freshly made beds tonight :) From now on i'm hoping life will slow down.... please!?!!
