Hello lovelies, sorry its been a while since my last confession err no thats wrong lol, I mean my last post. :-).
Right where to start, well as you know its been half term, my poor kids have had the half term from hell!!! It was my eldests birthday on the 7th and he has been desperate to go to Alton Towers, so when we had the lovely sunshine we booked a surprise night away at Stoke on the Tuesday to go to Alton Towers the next day....well those were the days the snow came!!! AARGH!!!
Here is a pic of Jack looking well cheesed off - as we walked from the carpark to the entrance hoping and praying the weather would change - it didnt!!
At least we saw a smile here - lol!!
After wandering around for an hour or two and getting onto an indoor ride and seeing the Ice Age 4d film we were approached by staff advising us to evacuate the park - due to snow, winds and falling trees - however refunds have been sorted and we will try again later in the year. We are off to London soon - so he'll get his fix of scary rides when we visit Thorpe Park & Chessington :-) . Please please let the weather be good!!
That was nightmare no 1. Nightmare no.2. was when they were with their dad in the Tesco car park and a woman reversed into their car - luckily no damage or injuries - just her blatent lying saying she never hit the car or heard my hubby blow his horn and said he was trying to pull a fast one!!
Nightmare no.3. me & the boys on our way to a local indoor skate park for their first ever visit when we were in an accident a van ran into the back of us and pushed us into the car in front - again no injuries and the car can be repaired - thank goodness.
Hopefully, all our bad luck is behind us!!
On some good news I've got some cards made and will get them blogged when I have spotted some appropriate challenges.
I have also completed my April make, being as I have missed February & March *blush*.
I saw a post on Dawnys blog, I havent knitted in ages - but thought I would give it a go - here is my finished jumper and my beanie hat just needs stitching up:
It looks a bit orange there - but it is actually bright red. I also gave my mum the details and she has managed to knit 3 in the time it took me to knit one!!! I've got the address - so I'll get these posted next week.
Hope you are still with me - lol.
Right, off to see if I can spot any challenges and will hopefully be back soon with some cards.
