Mum can we get a dog????

I've been tagged!!“You Make My Day Award” I have been tagged by Jackie, Jeanjeany and Noelle for this ( Thanks Girls ), and the rules are…..Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. Beware! You may get the award several times!So, to narrow it down to ten….I tag just 3 ...Lainey,Tigger and Caroline!
Talking of Caroline what a wonderful day I had last Sunday at her Cork crop. I had a really productive day and the LO above is the one we did in Caroline's class. A super LO for storing a series of photos under the layers at the top. Shared hints and tips for the Cricut with Jean and had great craic with all the girls. It is so refreshing to have a full day to crop and chat without real life taking over.

Here's a few of the cards I have been making recently.I still love Lola Rose as you can see!

This is where the "can we get a dog" saga starts!!! Isn't she soooo cute......


She has been asking me this ever since she could speak!!! I have always turned her down listing the usual - poops to be cleaned up,walks to be done,Doggy needs company and Mummy has to work some days etc etc.Reality doesn't sink in until it is experienced!! Last week my Mum got a Guide dog puppy for the disabled to mind for a few weeks until a home is found for her to be trained in(Mum did this before ). Anna was so excited about the 8 week old puppy. Her name is ASHA.

So - having spent a few days in her company - been jumped on,toys snatched,biscuits swiped,tights paw marked, her Gran otherwise engaged with another to shower her affection on!!!! - she has decided she doesn't want a dog - Halleliuiah!!!!

Oh God - it's been a month since I blogged!!! It was so crazy coming up to Christmas when Christmas came I went into crafting meltdown!!!! Have done a spruce up of the loft and and sorted out my stash and filed in order the requests for cards I have received so am up and running again - my mojo is back - YIPPEE.

We had a fab Christmas - visited my parents in the morning for Kris Kindle(i got gorgeous JO MALONE amber and lavender body lotion - I LOVE JO MALONE) and then Shane and I cooked the works for Christmas dinner including the most delicious Brussel sprouts in cream,bacon bits and breadcrumbs with parmesan cheese........ yuuuuuuuuuuuum.

Over Christmas we drove to IKEA in Belfast - 950km round trip and we stocked my wonderful PICASSO with furniture for the playroom , Anna's bedroom, light fittings and other miscellaneous stuff. I could have filled the car 10 times over. We'll just have to do it again! We drove on a Saturday and came home on a Sunday and shared the driving so it wasn't bad. One of the store managers thought we were nuts . He said " you know we deliver to Cork???" but I told him I HAD to actually shop there as I love it and you always pick up extra stuff that you may not see in the catalogue.
So here's to a healthy and happy 2008. Babies on the way for my friends Breda and Aoife and a wedding in May for Cathy and Paul. What a great start xxxx
