Rainy Day's & Mondays always get me down.... only it's Tuesday!

When I woke up this morning it was raining again and blowing a gale, I just wanted to roll over and go back to sleep, but I can't do this once awake I need to be up and on the go! but this morning it was just like winter, oh where did the lovely sunny weather go its' been like this for over a week and it really gets me down. Thought I had the perfect card to show you reflecting the weather here in Lancashre,only because everywhere else seems to be having a rain shortage, but alas it had changed by 10.00 am and the sun was shining!!! hoary it puts a real spring in your step, but not for George his A Levels started today :(

Thanks for dropping by here's to another sunny day tomorrow

On a Different Note......

Well first things first,what happened last week to blogger it was really playing up and I thought it was my fault! The out come... a lot of really nice comments that you take the time to send me totally wiped, gone forever, lost somewhere in cyber space.......

Been so busy with a Magazine artical never got round to posting this on Monday. I am so proud of Molly and George and there Grandma (my mum) is even prouder! the Christmas before last my mum was diagnosed with cancer, something you never think will affect you or someone dear to you, but thanks to treatment and major surgery and a strong determination to see Molly Graduate my brave mum faught it and won! Now it was time to give something back to those that have helped saveher recover. On a cold and very wet Sunday last weekend they ran in the Greater Manchester Bupa Run for "The Christie" hostpital who do amazing work for cancer suffers. Molly trained hard and gathered sponsors, George gathered sponsors but didn't train because ... well because
he's George and he can run anyway! He didn't even break in his new running shoes till the run. We all turned out to support them and of course the other 39,998 runners and well it was so emotional, and when they both finished (not together of course George came in first) I was a weeping buckets!!! Even though they ached on Monday and the aching was worst come Tuesday they have been bitten by the bug and have vowed to run again next year.

Now me.... I can't even run to catch a bus!!!





Well thats all for now, I will be back soon to show you something of interset! I just needed to shout this from the roof tops to say how very, very proud we all are of you both.

Mum, Problem Solver and Designer.......................................

Well a big hello, thought I would never be able to do this ...... computers have a mind of their own but I won, I solved the problem and now I can blog again!!!

Thanks for all your recent comments, some of them really made me laugh especially the ones about boys and their brains just glad I am not on my own, but guess what? its Thursday again and he is still in bed (he has been up since last blog) and really does need to be up for school, looks like I will be on the school run yet again. George leaves school in two weeks and will need only to go in for his exams, I really still can't believe he will be off to uni in September, oh what happened to my little boy? I already have the onset of empty nest oh anyway............

I was over teaching at Craftrange yesterday and thought I would share with you one of the cards we made. This weekend I will be Demoing over at Which Craft in Doncaster. If you want to know where I am going to be go to http://www.mollybloomsdesigns.co.uk/

Well that's all for now, I must away back to.... yes you have guessed Christmas.

Have A good Thursday,
Love Clare xxx

Good Morning and a big hi to everyone in blog land! Its been busy, busy, busy. I have been over to Weston -Super-Mare this weekend demoing, it was great fun and I met some lovely Characters so a big thanks to Ali and Janet over at Jobo Crafts. Now I am back and its to Christmas!!! I go, which is very hard when the weather is so wonderful at the moment

George it back to sixth form this morning, if I can get him up after the long weekend. I think hes still exhausted after pet sitting for a couple of days, but we did get a text saying could we get some dog food as he had run out!!! now I ask you when you're about 350miles away and the nearest shop to home is about 2.5 miles away what would you do???....  exactly, but no not George, Alfie had a bowl of cheerios, a pear and some toast as I always say...." Brains he may have common sense he has none" oh why, oh why do boys brains work in a peculiar Way?

Enough of my ramblings, cannot show you what I am working on at present, so I will share this with you, but it lacked something big time and it took me ages to figure out what, then I came across the Marianne Creatables die " English Rose"  now I can't stop making them...... but the picture was taken before I added them and the card has now gone... so I do get it wrong!

Before I go hop over to http://ribbongirls.blogspot.com/2011/05/strawberry-molly-giveaway.html they have candy to give away and its oh sooooooooooooooooooooooooo lovely!

Well I must go to try and wake George again, wish me luck,
Love Clare x
