Another day at home - I had hoped to try my first day out but just wasn't feeling too great so Addy & Freya took a trip to Elgin whilst me & Meike stayed home and did some crafting!

I asked them to pop into the pet shop for some bird seed.......well they managed to come home with 2 guinea pigs! Jeezy Peeps! We always used to have bunnies & piggies as pets...when we lived down in the Borders we were well known for rescuing small animals LOL Anyways in the local pet shop they have a wee section for animals that are needing adopted as their owners can no longer look after them and my big softie of an other half just had to bring them home!!

He was told they had hardly been handled but they are sooooo timid! We left them to settle into their new surroundings all afternoon but the girls couldn't wait any longer and had to have a wee cuddle! Look at them - Aren't they adorable! Annemiek has named hers "Toffee" and Freya has named hers "Rainbow" (I was hoping she would call her Fudge but no...Rainbow it is :))

Aren't they adorable!! I just love the wee chuntering and loud wheeeeeeking they do! Oh and guess what....he forgot the bird food!!!!!

Happy Red Nose Day

Still all quiet here - me and my stookie!

We were all up super early this morning as the kids were allowed to dress up for Red Nose Day at School - Annemiek wanted to be a "Mamma Mia Girl" so she has a super shiny 80's outfit and I sat for ages crimping all her hair - the blue eye shadow just finishes it off!

As for Freya.....well because I cant get her up to her nursery she has been staying home....but never needs a reason to dress up LOL so here she is aswell - my own wee super hero!

Her Dad managed to take her round to the school for their open doors fun session...face painting, games, prizes and even throwing wet sponges at teachers! I think they all had a blast!

Hope you are all having a good Red Nose Day - Do something FUNNY for MONEY!!! :)

Stuck at home....

...with a Stookie!

Sorry for the absence! I had a fall a couple of weeks ago and ended up in hospital needing an operation to fix 2 breaks in my ankle with a plate & pins. I am now home with a Bright PINK stookie and a big box of painkillers!

Slowly getting a bit more mobile - Ads has turned our living room / dining room into my own personal bedsit! Hoping to get some supplies down from the Craft room so I can fill in the long hours with some crafting!

Have not spent much time surfing yet as I can only sit for so long but want to say a BIG thank you to all the lovely peeps that have commented and sent well wishes via Sugar Nellie & Funky Kits!!

Nothing new to share at the moment - this is a card I did for a mag supplement which is out this month using one of Sugar Nellie's Annie designs by Leanne Ellis - i lubs them so much!
