Quick update...

Wow... where did the days go???

So a quick update is in order :)

First port of call is the SALE-A-BRATION BLOG HOP I'm taking part in tomorrow at 10am... hope you'll visit to see the project I've created for it! I will post a list of the others blogs taking part in my sidebar hopefully sometime tonight or tomorrow morning!
I'd also like to say hello to my Followers and a big thank-you... it's nice to know there are people who like my little blog, despite the sporadic posting... hehe

Yesterday saw my boys turn 13... how on earth did that happen? It doesn't seem 2 minutes since they were my tiny little premi-babies born 6 weeks too early

Thomas & Calum 2010 (No photo's allowed :( so from a distance it had to be... LOL)

I have yet to get an updated photo as they are on a trip with school for the weekend... so the birthday tea-party was celebrated on Thursday evening after school as they were leaving for the trip straight from school on the Friday... a Milestone birthday and they are away, whilst it makes me sad they aren't here, I'm also happy they are doing something they want to do and having fun with their school friends... they are even getting a birthday party thrown for them!
Next weekend we will celebrate properly with a trip to the cinema to see a film of their choice and then a spot of bowling followed by an evening meal!

Now onto an update regarding my challenges for this year... the Move More Eat Less... isn't going so well at the moment but I am determined to move it up a notch and get myself motivated with it during the next week... I've just been bought the Zumba workout for the Kinect so can swop between that and the Fitness Workout I was bought for Christmas... got to love the Kinect! This weekend I've over-indulged on the Chocolate Birthday Cake... need to work on my willpower against my biggest weakness... Chocolate!!!

I have a couple more photo's to post for the 52 Photo's but they are on the laptop so will get them transferred and post during next week!

52 Books... I've set myself a certain time frame each night to sit and read... I've managed most nights but plan to improve the amount of nights I read! So my book total is up to 4 and I'm onto my 5th!

'The Fury [eBook - ePub]' Description
Love can kill
Elena: with Damon at her side, and wild with her craving for blood, the changed Elena struggles to control her desires.
Damon: his hunger for the golden girl wars with his hunger for revenge against Stefan.
Stefan: tormented after losing Elena, he will do anything to get her back. Even if it means becoming what he once despised. . . .
Getting what they want may come at a deadly cost.

'The Dark Reunion [eBook - ePub]' Description
The Final Conflict...The Last Deadly Kiss
Now she rises from the dead to recreate the powerful vampire trio.
Summoned by Elena, he keeps a promise to her and fights the most terrifying evil he's ever faced.
Joining the brother he once called enemy, Damon battles this new horror with strength, cunning, and deadly charm.

If you haven't read these books but enjoy the Tv Series I would highly recommend you read the books... I don't want them to end they are just so gripping and enjoyable! I have to say i'm falling in love with Damon oohhhh so much!

Crafting Projects... I have this card to share! It was made for HisLordShip's boss's (who owns Fubar's brother) wife who turned 50 this week, she's a lovely lady :) Please excuse the photo quality, it was a last minute one taken on my Blackberry minutes before it was taken away!

I used all SU supplies except the Sizzix Embossing folders
Stamps... Vintage Vogue, Perfect Punches & So Happy For You (sentiment inside)
Cardstock... Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake & Whisper White
Inks... Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake & Sahara Sand
Embellishments... Pearls

The card is much nicer in real life... I actually quite proud of this one and will make some more!

Right I best get off here and take some photo's of my project for tomorrow and actually write the post ready for hitting the post button at 10am! Getting a little excited as this will be my very first Blog Hop!!!

Until Tomorrow Hugs xxx
