Good Luck Anita

and Mark!
We awaiting the arrival of Brother and Sister in Law in Ireland's first baby. I am NOT phoning because I know how horrible that last bit of pregnancy is when everyone is just WAITING for you to produce a baby... I stopped going out because of the STUPID questions like "have you had the baby yet?" - well do you see a baby??!!

So I am NOT ringing or emailing....
or waiting for my first nephew..


Good Luck!!

and so to July..

I was been looking for some inspiration for these photos of bubs beautiful smiles - and I found a new challenge blog: Aussie Scrap Music..
Here they challenge you to get inspiration from a funky music video clip every month. This month is a great Aussie band (that I hadn't heard, so I am old - bring back Duran Duran!!)
I Love u Simon!!

moving on...

C.J. has just had his first needles - still not 100% from the horrible Bronchiolitis - but he has put on 800 grams in 3 weeks - so he's doing O.K.!

8 weeks old

Wow, where did that 8 weeks go?? Clancy is starting to really grow this week - he is suddenly out of loads of clothes. I finally got some photos printed - now I just need some time to scrap them.
I have been doing little bits and pieces, a couple of layouts, but I need a good whole day session - a bit of therapy!!

pink sky at night

The sky was amazing as the sun went down last night. These photos are from our backyard, just two minutes later it was all dark..
Bub is much better now - all the cough is gone and the horrible rattle in his chest too. A much happier household all round!

wrapping paper - these a couple of the gift wraps the kids did with a potato and leftover paint. Tilly made a card to match for her friends party on Sunday - she has definately inherited the crafty gene.

36 hours

without a cough!! Our little guy is much happier (he's not the only one!). We are well and truly on the mend... a great relief. We have had a quiet weekend at home - did some great craft with the kids to make gift wrapping paper with a potato stamp - worked out brilliantly looked very "designer chic!"
I'm having a think about entering the Masters again this year - the challenges are really good this year - and having a size restriction is a great idea... it's just finding the time. I was thrilled to get 2 honorary mentions last year... I will just have to burn the midnight oil..

slowly we are fighting this horrible virus..I have stayed indoors most of the week - getting a little cabin fever, but necessary to keep Clancy out of the cold and wind....I got a few smiles today, so hopefully that means he is feeling a bit better- The rocking chair is certainly getting a workout.
...thanks for all the good wishes.

poor little man.

my little boy has been ill. A horrible case of bronchiolitis. At six weeks old he is just far to little to be this sick. He was admitted on Sunday to hospital for oxygen - there is nothing else they can do as it is a virus...he has the most horrible cough - sounds like he has been smoking for 20 years... I can't imagine what it must be like for a parent with a chronically ill child -it's just heartbreaking every time he struggles for breath...
he has been sick for about a week, apparently we have another 2 weeks before this no scrapping or blogging happening here.. just lots of cuddles..
