I can't believe that it is 10 months since I have posted on my blog - how bad is that!

Life as always has been hectic this year, taking on a new role at work, running around after the kids, there is just not enough hours in a day.  My youngest son has been picked to play football for our borough, so 4 nights a week he is doing some kind of football training, and now plays matches on a Saturday and Sunday.  So any spare time for me is severely lacking!

I've been crafting/card making still since I last blogged, although not as often as I like, but have also got into gardening, and growing my own veg, so that has kept me busy.  I successfully managed to grow potatoes, onions, radishes, carrots and a ton of strawberries and blackberries.  The tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers didn't do well, but you live and learn, and veg growing is something that I will be doing again next year, everything tastes so much better than shop bought:

I've also had a little helper helping me in the garden - our cat May, and she loves to dig up what I plant!

I'm back into card making for Christmas - 35 down; another 20 to go.  I've challenged myself to get them all made by the end of this month, so that I can concentrate on other Christmas preps from December.  Going 'up north' Christmas shopping in 2 weeks, so looking forward to that - staying over night on my own, but it is worth the costs of the hotel, cos everything is some much cheaper than where we live.  I love wondering around home bargains shops to grab a bargain, its a shop that we don't have here, so have about 7 planned out on my trip to Stoke, and Cheshire Oaks.   My husband thinks I'm mad, but a night away on my own is pure bliss!

I made a card yesterday, and have found a challenge to enter it into, so am hoping to do some more posts before the end of the year.
