Craft show complete...

A fairly good show at Hylands house this weekend, am absolutely exhausted now though, I was right at the top of the house which meant about ten trips up & down a big staircase carrying heavy display bits.....good job I enjoy it!-I just didn't know about the free weightlifting while engaging in aerobic excercise that's all!
Here's some pictures I took around the house on Saturday......

Anyway, I have been awarded a blog award, must go collect it!

Friday 13th.......

I know, I know I've been ages doing this, but you just wouldn't believe the week I'm having, it has been decided that the winner of the pancake giveaway is Brenda with this valuable life lesson

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
I like this one & it's so true!

now, as you know I have a craft show at Hylands house this weekend, & I'm all ready stock wise, I've almost clayed myself into oblivion this week, have finally got my stall how I want it,
I need some signs printed & you wouldn't believe the trouble, my printer isn't working so I went round to mums all ready with my usb drive whotsit with my documents on...get there, & the pc is broken, & no putting the usb into the usb point didn't work!...& I'm running out of options!
Anyway, the good news is that after several attempts, my sandcastles worked...pics soon, here's work in progress...I thought these might be nice summertime presents for, well anyone who is hankering after a holiday (like me) & it can still be used as a miniature scene (bury the surrounding tile in sand!) ...........Oh well best get on with my quest to print!

Newer addition....

Just found another fish, who is now with his/her brothers/sisters (too tiny to tell yet!)

New additions!

I haven't had much time for my blog over the last week, & I have still to announce the winner of the giveaway....will do that tomorrow, I have to tell you about the new family members!

On Friday morning, at the busiest time of our day, my daughter noticed some fish babies hiding in the tank, sadly one was eaten up my the mother (who, ravenous after giving birth, forgets that she has had babies, then sees little fish swimming around & thinks...."ooooh little fish, I'm starving yum!") the other one just died I think, or was attacked...however, we could see that there was more babies to come, so I dropped children off at school & went straight to buy a nursery net.

That night, she could see two more swimming around the bottom of the tank, so we sprung into action, it was a family effort catching these practically invisible fish & putting them in the safety of the nursery...we then had a bit of a disaster as the baby food that you are supposed to put a drop of in, burst & emptied half the bottle into the tank......aaaaaaaaagh, so we did an emergency water change & everthing is once again harmonious in the land of fish!

Mad March

Today, I am having one of those days, it was a bit chilly outside this morning, but I was freezing, I felt cold right through to the bone & wanted to curl up under the duvet & sleep. I feel achy & sluggish, I think it's because I am busier than I can handle, I have my stall to finish, stuff to sell to finish, I want to have a large choice of Mothers day presents!

I have stained my shoe rack & spice rack for my stall, a bit of a pain to do, I could have done it much easier if I could have just dipped the shoe rack into the woodstain, as it was fiddly to do with the brush! It looks ok though, better for having it done!!

I'ts brightened up now, so hopefully I can have a brisk walk to school & shake off the cobwebs that are making me feel so...yuk! Then I can get myself organised & get on with my work, I can't decide which would be better, I have one table left to do...should it be "baking for Mum" or "Easter baking"...can't decide!

More giveaway entries please-I need your life lessons!
