Up the Ladder

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted, been lots going on recently and just haven't had the time. Still working away at the massive clear out - couldn't do it without Stu who has been a great help. Now have dining room, big hall cupboard and lock up done. Need to start on little hall cupboard and build the rest of the bedroom furniture next. Then it'll be some extra kitchen wall units (I have a spare wall in there anyway) then the chaos that will be the bathroom.

Got some good news on Friday - got promoted at work - well chuffed about - will be quite a challenge, but I'm sure I'll love it. As a congrats, Stu gave me my birthday present early - a Nintendo DS with Big Brain Academy and Brain Training. Got my brain age down to 20 tonight, which is not bad going as I've only done the daily brain age 6 times. A bit disappointed it didn't unlock more of the training games - heacount was my last one (and the first one I've managed to get a rocket for my speed). Big Brain Academy is great too - think my best is about 1560g and a B+.

As well as having my nose glued to the screen I made this card in the early hours of Tuesday morning for everyone at work to sign for a colleague who's going off on maternity leave.

A bit of a crappy scan as Fimo teddy made it sit wonky. Also bubble green circle was definitely not as lime as that!! Really must get to grips with taking photos of cards instead of scans. Paper was some I got from a local craft shop (in fact the only one left in town now I think). Photo corners are Sizzix, circle with frame are Cuttlebug, embossed with Tiny Bubbles embossing folder and teddy is made of Fimo using a Sculpey push mould.

Got P & K coming to dinner on Sat, so will need to cook something nice - thinking of having venison, cos I love it and haven't had it in ages, and I think I'll do a sweet instead of starter, as K has quite a sweet tooth.

Finished The Alexander Cipher by Will Adams at the weekend. Was a really good read - if you like things like The DaVinci Code and The Righteous Men you'll probably enjoy it as much as I did.

Wedding update now (hope I'm not boring you with all the wedding talk) - G has her bridesmaid dress and really likes it - I love it too, but not seen her in it yet, we also got another one the same, to pull apart and make a dress for P - that way they'll both have the same fabric.

Think that's all I've got to report for now. Hoping to get Mario & Sonic at the Olympics for the Wii on Friday, so will give a review of that next week.

Toodles for now xoxo
