Then, I have finally recovered from my hangover ! Here are the first photos.The location-Somerleyton Hall
The table decorations were not only popular with the kids -I collected the feathers not only for my dreamcatchers,lol- happy mood and laughter at our table !
Sarah caught me sticking the feathers into my hair while waiting for Desert.

Thoughts are with friends in the path of Irene in the moment.I have just read that they are feeling the impact now. I have a few friends there,like Morgana etc,so I hope they are all safe.I know a lot of friends have been preparing for it,like drinking water for those with wells which don't work if power goes and more.Here is a link which shows what people experience so far. Be safe http://www.weather.com/social/fullfeed/Morehead+City+NC+USNC0464

thought I pop in quickly and show what I've done so far....
Well, after a lot of sewing I needed to relax and chill out in a different way for a while-so here is a pic I made with pieces of the new kit I'm working on.

Wedding kit ready and uploading to go into the store tomorrow evening, another kit in the making and I started on yet another project ! My sofa is a few years old, the only thing wrong with it are the covers. So I have decided to give my old sofa a make-over. Via Facebook I am on all sorts of creative sites , so when I came across this one I said to myself" What a bloody good idea ! " Annabella shows how much difference new slipcovers for the sofa make. http://annabellea.com/blog/2011/07/10/drop-cloth-sofa-slipcover/
So yesterday morning I went to the Come and sew Centre, purchased lots of fabric to do the same. I started last night -will show some pics in another post, but as it grew later Sam seemed to say : "Enough sewing for tonight, I want cuddles" and sat down on my chair.

Yesterday Shaun and me went to Ron and both got a new Tattoo. Mine is very obvious for what it stands for-it's a raven feather which goes into a flock of birds.
The Pink Challenge qp -I have to add that not all of the pieces are mine, although I add some of my own from time to time, but I had to put my label on so they cannot be used straight from the blog.

Our cats are much better, we still have the occasional flea , but nowhere near as bad as it was ! But it takes time to heal for the flea bites.My legs are still itchy and for some reason they target me and not Shaun ...I must have the sweeter blood, or I'm more hot blooded ,lol .
I'm still working overtime , tonight it's a 12 hour night shift. But I have also treated myself the past couple of days. I bought myself a new jacket for when it gets cooler now, and a pair of new boots. Plus another order from Amazon will be on it's way here , and I have finally decided to give giving up smoking another go. Christine has been using an electronic cigarette for 6 months now with great success ! So I thought I will give this little device a try a well, and ordered the starter pack. I will let you know how it goes and maybe post a pic when it arrives. It will save me a lot of money , the nicotine cartridges can just be refilled and it comes with a battery charger. all in all it costs me the price of 8 packs of cigarettes and considering I smoke a pack every day that is fantastic.The aim is to cut down first.So while I am inside I "smoke " the electronic device, and when I am outside I will still treat myself to a proper cigarette. Considering I spend a lot of time inside at work and home doing housework this should cut down costs by more than half to start off with already. Then the nicotine strength goes down , until you can just order nicotine free refill , or even flavoured ones like chocolate , vanilla ,apple etc. I always found I miss something between my fingers , so this little device takes care of that. Hey, you never know unless you try - all the other non-smoking aids are free , you can just get them at the doctors, for this device I have to pay myself-so it will be an extra incentive as well. I just have to be careful with my weight. In the past I have put it on when I stopped smoking , hopefully my change of lifestyle now will prevent me putting too much on. Guess I have to work out a little harder if I notice my new smaller clothing getting tighter !
I will get ready to go into town now. My favourite crystal bracelet broke yesterday. It was a gift from Erik which he gave me while I was across there with him last year, so it means a lot to me.Nothing fancy, just lots of crystal chips on a thin elastic. I just need to get some of this thin elastic and put the crystal pieces back on it. I already have beading needles which are thin enough among my craft supplies.
I'm currently working on getting all the pieces of a Wedding kit wrapped up and do previews, planning for release end of the week. So this is all for now, will have some time off coming up soon and pop in again then.Leaving you with two pics .
Shaun and Sam -cuddle time

I'm busy having a War ! A flea war !
We have a year with lots of fleas here, seems the weather has been perfect for the little b****d to breed. So now the communal stairwell is full of them and without noticing they must have been carried or jumped into the flats. So yesterday I was busy bathing and treating our 3 cats, fumigating and cleaning the corners and floors , washing all kind of soft furnishings, cushions and pet bedding. It seems to pay off, the cats are a lot more comfortable today. But until the stairwell is done ( we have reported it to the housing association) we still have to keep up and watch out for them. That wasn't how I imagined my Sunday to be ! For a start I was still tired cause I was out dancing till the early morning hours and had not fully recovered from the 12 hour night shift before. But , as I always say-no rest for the wicked ! Will I ever get this kit ready,lol? It seems every time I plan on working on it something comes in between. But hey, I'm not someone to give up -I'll get around to it eventually. But for now I'm off - still upstairs to hoover and make sure those horrid little critters won't survive and lay more eggs. The steam cleaner has also seen some action to kill them off.Hopefully next post I actually have something to show. I want to start creating some printable spell cards ......

It was a busy night last night at the second day of the Air Show. There were events going on at several pubs and Clubs before the fireworks at the end of it...and it didn't end then.There were people out and about until almost 5.00 am this morning. I took a break outside for some fresh air when the fireworks was on and for a picture shot with my phone this isn't too bad, I think.
We have our very own food supply for our lunch breaks at work growning over the fence. Blackberries-these are so juicy and sweet , I often stand there just picking and eating.

|Watching the show|
All in all a good day.But today I needed to recover -slept until 12 and then slowly got ready , out for some fresh air into town, and now waiting for dinner to be ready and then will have to peddle off to work for a long 12 hour night shift. Let's see if I finish off this kit on my days off . Till next post -hugs :)

Friends on FB keep asking questions-why did it start ? what is going on now -or - hope everything is ok where you are . Eddy sent me a message :
hope the pucks give up on doing all the damage, stay save babe, watch out on your way home now, babe....
.. bless him, the sweetie ! -so nice to see that my friends care about my safety.
In Fen Park -a childrens play park ,a table and wooden bench , plus a hedge were set on fire by teenagers - I fail to try and make any sense of it, bar needless destruction.More unrests last night have shown that this is far from over, so I am prepared for another busy shift. I tried to design a bit more to get the kit finished but my brain was on strike last night and so I just went to bed in the end. But I have a few pictures to show instead. This was last night during a much needed 5 minute break outside at work , catching a breath of fresh air and taking silly pictures with my phone,lol
