WOW....In the last 3 weeks I have completed 2 albums 8x8 for my mum and Jamies mum full of wedding pics. Im so pleased with them. I have made sure that they are identical...which is probably why the were finished so quickly.
Next project is my wedding album which will be 12x12 and will be in much more detail than the smaller ones. Will get started with that this weekend probably.

Also I have started to open my Advent Box and have received some little gifts....
1st day of xmas...Chocolate Orange
2nd day of xmas...Bag of Haribo and a bag of mixed Buttons
3rd day of xmas...An Altered notepad
4th day of xmas...A bag of red and white Prima flowers
5th day of xmas...Bag of Haribo and a bag of mixed Brads
6th day of xmas...Prit Stick wrapped in Fibres
Wonder what Ill get 2moro?????

The whole idea of the Advent swap is fab.....Im really enjoying it and cant wait to find out who my secret Santa is.....The person that I sent to seems to like her gifts also mind you as it is only the begining they will only (fingers crossed) get better and she will like whats left even more. As this was my 1st Advent Swap I found it hard to know what to get so I really hope she likes everything.
(That hasnt given away who I am to my Swapee I hope..LOL)

We are now all christmassy in our house...we put up the Decs and tree on Sunday...presents will be wrapped and put under tree this weekend..this is only cause we dont have any children around for christmas and my family will be up in the New Year due to working over Xmas so no need to hide anything until the last moment. Plus me and Jamie kind of know what we are geting for each other (minus 1 or 2 surprise bits)so dont really need to hide anything from each other either.

What a FAB weekend!!!

Even though I wasnt ready for it I had such a good time doing the UKS Harry Potter Cyber Crop. I dint manage all the classes but did a few and printed off the others to put in my Inspiration Folder for future reference.

I managed to do 8SLOs and 2DLOs all for the mini wedding albums I am putting together for both our mums.

Just a quick well done to the NOOBIE BOOBIES who won bits and bobs over the weekend...We really are the best!!!!!!

My Advent Box arrived this morning as Im all excited about that. Lots of carefully wrapped little gifts ready to be ripped open...Cant wait!!!!!

Sooooo not ready!!!!!

Its the UKS Cyber Crop this weekend and im so not ready for it!!!!!!
I decided not to order any of the kits.....this was for 2 reasons
1) bit strapped for cash
2) didnt know how much Id be able to join in with so unsure if would be worth it
This is a decision im begining to regret!!!!!!!
I still have to sort through my stash to match with the classes and I still need to organise the pics I want to use!!!!!!
I have just sorted through a big shoe box of printed pics waiting to be scrapped so at least I have them but having not done a CC before im unsure of what im doing really.

I have been signed off work due to being over tired so will be able to get loads of crafting done as it helps me relax...already this month I have done
8 Double Layouts and
6 Single Layouts!!!!!
They are all for my mums and jamies mums copies of the wedding album which Im hoping to have finished by xmas so can give as little gifts!!!!!!!

Also managed to scrap the pics I have of the Pregnancy so far...they look really just need to have the baby and get the album to put them in!!!!

Must remember to take pics of the pages and upload them so everyone else can see!!!!!

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Well for the 1st time in ages I have actually done some scrapping!!!!!!!

I have started my Baby album...doing a few pages following the pregnancy for the start of the album then will obviously fill it with baby pics once baby is born.
I havent really been doing anything else latley.
We had Jamies mum/dad/brother and sue up this weekend and decided to go to Blackpool for the day on Saturday........


being able to walk around was a real acheivement for all of us....the wind was so strong it kept blowing us around. Then we went into the Pleasure Beach cause Jamie/Jason (bro) and Sue wanted to 'play' on the rides...they couldnt go on much cause the weather was so bad that most of the rides were closed.

When we came back home we stopped in to see Jim and Jackies new house (they should be up end Nov)...its really nice....and then came home for a dinner of Fahitas. After dinner the others had a small drink and we just sat around chatting.

Tues 17th Blog.....

Well hello there

So not much has been happening over the weekend. Went shopping on Saturday and brought some bedding bits for the nursery...Humphries Corner...Its fab!!!!
I also brought some Maternity Jeans....not the most attractive of clothing items but hey they are jeans and they fit.LOL

On Sunday we went to our friends sons 1st birthday at Wacky Warehouse (somewhere in Stockport).....Now I dont actually know who had more fun Jamie or the kids!!!!
He was in and out of the Ball Pit obviously using the birthday boy as his excuse..He even pulled a face when I told him that it was time to go....I lost track of who was the 1yr old and who was the 27 yr old!!!!!!!!

I may be a little lapse in updating the blog over the next few days...Nothing new there I hear you say!!!
But im going to set up a link and keep a Pregnancy Blog also..Just so I have something to look back on and see haw things went...Im gonna try add pics and everything...well thats the plan anyway..I hope you find it interesting!!!

Ok guys for those of you who dont know...this is me!!!

Its official....

Its official I am not very good at keeping this blog!!!!!!!!

I was Tagged a little while ago so I suppose id better reply the rules are

List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. Tag 5 friends and list them. They then write on their Blogs and Tag 5 more people and so on......
so here goes

1. I cant stand Cheese...I dont like the taste,smell,feel of it in whatever form be it spreadable,melted,lumps...yuck!!!!!
This means that I dont eat Pizza and so many people think thats strange. In certain places I have to say Im allergic otherwise they wont cook me cheese free food!!!!

2. I celebrate a Curry anniversary!!!!
Yes you read correctly....up until 4years ago I couldnt stand curry and the thought of tasting it was beyond me, that was until on 26May my friends b/day everyone went for a curry. We were invited and my (now) husband said he wouldnt go just cause of me...I persuaded him that we should go and if I dont eat anything Ill grab something on way home. Well after trying bits of what everyone else was having I havent looked back since

3. I keep craving custard.....This is prob cause Im 5mths pregnant at the moment but I think its something weird about me at this current moment in time!!

4. I hate spiders and creepy crawly the moment Im constantly dodging Daddy Long Legs. If one flys into the room Jamie has to remove it straight away..same with spiders....Ive got the shivers just thinking bout them.

5. My husband is called Jamie 2!!!!!!!
I am commonly known as Jaime girl to friends...Poss due to fact that in our group of friends there are 4 jamies me being the only girl!!!!
Yes the mail and telephone calls can get confusing but for the caller not us..we think its quite funny when people go 'erm, umm, ooohh, erm' and then ask for the correct one using title or middle name...I sometimes wish I could see their faces!!!!!

Right now I need to Tag 5 friends but I only know 2 other people with Blogs so I can only do 2

Carole....Yes I know you tagged me but hey!!!!

Im not doing to well keeping this updated am I!!!!
I suppose its because I dont feel that I have anything to add on a daily basis. My friend thinks I should keep a pregnancy blog so I have something to show the baby when it grows up....Im keeping a written weekly diary and Im taking regular pictures of myself....being a keen scrapbooker that was obviously going to happen!!!! I will probably back date a blog for the pregnancy..its just findin the time to start it properly and then remembering to keep it updated!!!

We had family up this weekend..Jamies mum and dad came up for the weekend...didnt really do much but was nice to see them.

Thats all that has really happened since I last posted....see not much to add!!!!

I will prob post again on Thursday as I have my 20week scan so will have something to talk about!!!

Wednesday, September 13, 2006

Well hello there

My 1st day back at work 2day after having 1 month off due to Low Blood Pressure caused by the pregnancy. OMG how tired am I!!!! Im so used to sitting round doing nothing all day it has just knocked me for six 2day!!!!

How weird is it being pregnant!!!
Not only am I getting more and more tired, spending more time in the bathroom going to the loo, having no clothes that fit properly due to expanding belly/boobs and who knows what else but I keep having funny things happen especially with my sense of smell. For instance the other week while the weather was really nice I was driving on the moterway with the windows open and I got a really strong smell of Raw Onions wafting thru the I like onions but the smell was so strong it was as if I had just peeled on while driving!!!! Im also smelling McDonalds in the strangest places like at my desk at work...No one was eating near me and the kitchen was to far away to smell what was being eaten in there (not that it was McDs anyway!!) STRANGE!!!!

On the upside I have finally felt the baby move...Im 18 weeks so was waiting for it to happen but when it did it was really sureal..but fantastic!!!
At 1st it was a little flutter to the side of my stomach but I have since felt what can only be described as a poke...Its excellent...I think Jamie is a bit gutted cause he cant feel it and I keep telling him when I can!!!!!
Got my 2nd scan nxt week so cant wait for that!!!!

Monday, September 11, 2006

Ok so here goes...My 1st posting...Im intregued by the hype that Blogs are causing so I thought I would give it a go myself and see what its all about.....Now im here though Im not sure where to start. Ive looked at a few other Blogs and they all look great so here goes!!!!!

Im gonna start with a little bit about me!!

Well Im a 27 year old who recently married my partner of 4 years. We got married on 09 May 2006 in Protaras Cyprus and it was the most fantastic day. We had managed to get 67 guests to fly out to help us celebrate our day and had a huge party when we got home for everyone who couldnt make it. We had the most fantastic month...Cause thats how long it was b4 we were back at home recovering from everything!!!!!

My now husband is also called Jamie so gets a little confusing at times but ive devised a system with the post.....anything that looks like a bill is his and the junk mail is mine!!!!!!

2 1/2 years ago we decided to make a rather big step in our relationship as we packed up all our belongings and moved 200 miles away from family and friends to live in Wigan....we previously lived about 5 mins away from Heathrow at my nans house....Wigan was one of the best decisions we made..we now have our own house and are settled in jobs we enjoy. We have a cat by the name of Alfie and life couldnt get better...or so we thought!!!!

4 months ago I found out that I am expecting our 1st baby due 15 Feb 2007...yes thats right you did your maths correct we have only been married 4 1/2 months so yes it was concieved on honnymoon in Cyprus.....what a wedding present hey!!!!!

So far all is going well and I am looking forward to my 20week scan which is booked for nxt week!!!!!

Well I think that i am getting the hang of this now....but I dont want to tell you everything in one go so Ill say goodbye for 2day!!!
