what a week

Well whats been  happening loads and nothing all at the same time, what may seem trivial to me has probably been maga for them and visa versa.
One thing though my daughter seems to be going through the mill at the moment she is only 11 and feels she is being "picked on " as she is a scout in a primarily male troop, most of the boys dont see her as a girl but as a scout but just one or two want to spoil it for her and I have to stand up for her dont I.
I really hate it when she is upset as it upsets me as well.

New starts and new beginnings

Well here we are new starts and a new beginninig I am writing this blog to try and help me through my day to day rambling. Its been a tough few weeks were I work with one thing and another and I can honestly say its not been nice and not primarily for me. Anyway onwards and upwards, yesterday I went to Harrogate to a craft fair at the yorkshire showground. I went round with my sister and hubby and the kids as well and we all had a great time. Rebekah has said she wants to start her very own art journal she was very impressed with the people at Art from the heart and wants to be just like them.

Omg how weird is this i decided to log onto here as not been here for 2 years and as i come back because of some blogs i am reading I see the video I have on here is save a prayer duran duran and I have just been watching them on tv tonight, coincidence or fate who knows lol.

going to try and write on here at least once a week from now on as i feel it will help me come to terms with lots of things that are going on in my life, I feel as its a bit of a mess at the moment and really need to come to terms with it. Not going to bore you all with it but you may be my sounding block if i need to scream.
not going to do much now but familiarise myself with my blog

OMG ITS 2009

Well folks what can I say its 2009 and here I am. think i forgot about this with everything that has been going on and believe me i don't even know where to start.
On a work level things are doing ok I now work a 37 hr week as we have been through job evaluation and I think the only thing I can say about that is that i always thought that consultation was a two way process but from my experience that is not so you are told what to do lol.
Family Life well where do i begin ? I love my family to bits but its been a bloody hard 6 months my two step children who have been living with us permanently for the last two years but seeing their mum and step dad at weekends and holidays well their mum emigrated to Australia ( yes Australia) in November and we have had our ups and downs as you can well imagine with the emotional roller coaster of feelings that the children are going through, we just about settle things and then Christmas comes along and rears up lots of emotions.
My card making has taken a back seat or even a seat up in the loft far far away lol as i have just not had the motivation to do anything but hopefully that will change , my lovely husband bought me a cuttlebug for Christmas and i am looking forward to using it lol and i have promised myself i will do haha
Oh well in for a penny in for a pound ( i feel like i am in confession lol ) my name is Linda and I am a facebook addict . There I said it facebook takes up a lot of my time lol too much if you listen to my husband lol.
On a downish note my dad has not been too well and has had a short stay in hospital before Christmas he is home now he is better than he was but will not get better as he has a heart condition and its deteriorating so were waiting at the moment to see what options are open to him.

Well i think that more or less brings you all uptodate in my little life lol.
I hope you all had a good Christmas and wish you all the best for 2009
Now I don't promise to be here everyday but hope to be back more regular than 8 months lol
Take Care Now
Thanks for reading x x x
