I decided to quit facebook to get away from the bad news stories, abused animals and sick kids - all of whom broke my heart on a daily basis to a point at which I was unable to cope anymore. Instead I am trying to use my time more productively, I've been baking, colouring and knitting - this is the result of the latter, The very first completed scarf with no dropped stitches or cock up's that I have ever completed in my 38 years. It's as basic as it comes - simple stocking stitch - but i'm still quite proud.

Friday - visit to Paul and Laura - collecting goodies

Paul and Laura have been updating their tech and very kindly offered us the previous items....George got an ipad in a funky green case, we got a 32 inch plasma screen tv and a ps3 with a handful of games, the boys are currently favouring The Simpsons. One person's cast off's can certainly be another person's treasure.

Bright and cold

Born today!

Born to my bezzie today...Oliver Robert Barber, 8lbs 3oz, at 4.33pm via the sunroof. 
Could not be more happy, relieved and thankful after her long hard and emotional journey.
