A real scrapping blog, living, loving life and scrapping it along the way with ratty adventures thrown in too. Come into the Zone with me and see what the Twins and I are up to today!

Raving !!!!

One day soon , hopefully this weekend I will see some daylight??
I go to work in the dark and come home again in the dark and rarely see daylight whilst I mop of the detritus of peoples lives and strange activities.
I want to show you all the cards that I have made, and most of all I want to make some more, or scrap or art journal or anything that does not involve listening to tales of woe and collecting intimate samples!!!

If I get to see some daylight, and it look promising this weekend cos I am off  -  hurrah - I will photograph aforementioned cards and I WILL make something to soothe my current art free soul!

In the meantime I have been freezing my little toes and fat ass off on my bike this week and am not looking forward to snow! (Good job for my rear padding as it does keep some heat in :) )
and mainly snuggling here in my newly decorated lounge!!

I have been raving this week about the Olympics and the HUGE disruption it is causing to my world and then on top of that we, Londoners, are told that we should take time now to start to replan our routes come the summer. 
Why should I be disrupted when trying to get to work (not that I will be) but really? How are Londoners meant to be proud and excited about showcasing our city to the world when we are being royally shat on to do so, with the promise that being late for work during those months will not be tolerated - like its our fault!!
Roll on June!!
Maybe I wont come home??

Blah blah blah!!

 Ha ha!  So its 2012, has been for a while now, so I am not going even start apologising for my absence and lack of blogging etc etc - its pointless!
You all know I haven't been here for a while and that's just because I have been busy living, not scrapping, and therefore although I have had lots to share you don't want to read a load of waffle without any pretty pics do you?
 So - onwards and upwards. Christmas came and went - at work - all funds for the USA pot!!
I'm going back there in June -  for a BIG celebration -  because I am turning........................forty (yikes!!) in a few weeks.

I plan a grown up dinner party here to mark the occasion, but really am celebrating by going for a mega three week trip to the place where my heart belongs!! Sadly, I will have to return as Visa difficulties mean I can't stay there indefinitely unless I find myself a hot yank who wants to marry me???    :(

  The decorating is almost finished and love love love my new look lounge. Its all grown up and suitable for socialising - not like the play room it resembled before?
 I worked another set of night duties and took the opportunity to wander round my home town in the wee small hours taking pics.............love this city!
 Have managed after several weeks off to get my asre back on my bike and start cycling to work again - need to shift the lbs before I hit the beach in the US!!!
Have worked and played and laughed very hard!!

Had a lovely late Crimbo at Grannywens and had a lovely crafty day with her making cards - I will share here as soon as the gloom lifts and I can photograph them properly. In the meantime, here is a bloomin' awful picture of a card I made for a girl at work who is escaping to have a baby! Excuse the crappy phone pic.

I've had loads of ideas of things to make and paint in my head but none of them have materialised into anything tangible yet - however, the arrival of my new Gogo kit this morning may well change all that?
See you all soon - promise
