Xmas Mouse

Hi,

Well after last weeks crazy week - it has settled down a bit, well that is until tomorrow - when we have H's sports day at 9.30 - 11.30, at 1.30 we Alan and I are checking out a new school for H, as we have had lots of problems this year with the school - with regards to the headmaster and his teacher who seems to be headteachers pet !!, then at 3.30, when i pick H up from school, i have to drive to his best friends house, as it's her brothers 4th birthday party - barby and paddling pool, brilliant for the kids, oh roll on summer hols then hopefully we won't be so time regulated !!

Well I can't really believe i have made a Christmas Card, when the temperature outside is 24C - gee i must be mad, but then it will save me rushing in December !!, now you made need your sunglasses for the papers as they are rather bright !! - My Mind's Eye - 'Colorful Christmas' (i do apologise to my British followers for the spelling, but they are American papers), the punched edge - MS - 'Icicles', sentiment - PB - 'Let It Snow/ Transparent Set', snowflakes - Marianne D - 'LR0125', ribbon, charm and sparkly brad from stash.
