This little guy was made for the better late than never challenge, and was to create a card which was anything but a rectangle.

Well today started far too early for a Sunday. Had to collect my parents after getting the kids groomed and polished for the family photograph at 09.30. I hate having my picture taken at the best of times.  Unfortunately had been out with the girls last night, we decided to take Valentine’s day back from all the smooching couples and strike a blow for all us independant (read single) women. I think we behaved rather disgracefully, more like a hen night than a civilised meal out. We probably won’t be asked back to the restaurant again, and we got more than our fair share of dirty looks. I think we  may have spoiled many a romantic meal – oops, but us singles have fight to fight back sometimes.

Anyway, am feeling rather fragile this morning (god only knows what I’m going to look like on the portrait – thank heaven for cosmetics lol  – but have a couple of weeks to try and prepare myself for that), luckily the children are out for the day so can sit and play without interruption. Although being creative is probably a tad optimistic of me. I definitely need a gallon of caffeine before I start. If that fails I shall get some pictures of the cats to add to the profile page – lol.

If I don’t look like elephant man I may even post the portrait when I collect it.

New Home February 12, 2009

Filed under: Misc ramblings — limarie @ 23:25

Well have finally finished trying to sort random posts into categories – not sure it’s all gone according to plan so will have to be more careful with future posts.

It’s nice to have a new home for my blog but am still learning how it works and what it can do but am sure will get there in the end. May even get round to adding a profile – lol

Well it’s certainly green – lol. Think I went a bit mad with the distressing though, it looks a bit battered now, but I just love this cute little guy. I put some seeds in (continuing the green theme) and gave it to my son Jake, who has his own little patch in the garden. The poppies should look fantastic growing in the back street behind the garden. cimg1273 Sorry about the bad photo of the seeds.
This was for a new blog challenge, the theme being GREEN and it can be found here
I did struggle with this one as I’m not the best at covering boxes, but practice makes perfect – or so they say…….
