Lapsing badly!!

But it has been a mad mad week with so much to do and so little time.

So Violette turned 6 months last week. We can't ever imagine our life without her. She fits in the family perfectly and she is still just the perfect baby. I have decided to stop taking weekly pictures. I will now take one picture a month, I just have to decide where and how to take the picture so I can do the same every month. But until I come up with a brilliant idea, here are the last 6 months!!

Last week was also my Dad's birthday so I made him a card and while at it, I also made a thank you card. I used my kit from Cocoa Daisy. I love it, all together colour coordinated, I could get used to this!!

I have a few other things to show you such as the teachers' presents and a page I made last night but the sun is calling me!! I really have to make the best of my peace and quiet as it is the last chance I will have for the next 6 weeks!! School is out for summer!!

Have a great summer holiday.

25 weeks

My baby is 25 weeks today. Should really have some teeth by now, but no sign, although every time she cries I am hearing myself saying, " it must be her teeth! "

Had a wonderful weekend watching the tennis. Saturday was great as the French lady won the final but Sunday was memorable as I went to London with one of my anonymous friend to watch Murray win the final. It was unbearably hot and mad busy but what a day. 

Hopefully I will have time to make a page soon to remember this wonderful day. I also have to make the teachers' presents this week. Well, I actually don't technically need to make them, I bought some old fashion sweets so all I have to do is warp them nicely and make some thank you tags. 
This week is also advertising week for me. I should spend time visiting playgroups and trying to find some new customers but ... hmm, it is hot, isn't it! Let's start tomorrow!

Have a great week everyone.

Birthday bush!!

My scrap booking friends bought me two beautiful roses bushes for my birthday in May. One of them has become my most favourite thing in the garden. The colour is so wonderful, it has come right on time to replace the dying blue geraniums and cheers me up whenever I walk out of the door.( Have I really become that much of a gardener that it now makes the head line of my post!! )

Apart from a lovely parcel that was delivered to Andrew when he was in the states last week, I have nothing crafty to show you. But the parcel was really lovely full of goodies from Cocoa Daisy, truly awesome (where did this word come from ? Must be the thought of America)

Today, well yesterday, Violette was 24 weeks. Back to her normal routine, I am so grateful, although this week of horrendous sleeping reminded me that everything is a phase, good or bad and I should really enjoy the nights when she does sleep for 13 hours. I am sure we will be up again soon!!

But still looking cute!!

I hope you have a good week.
