    Yes i actually scrapped!
    I was determined to do a page so off i went and 50 minutes later it was done.
    I think it's probably the quickest page i've ever done :)

    Well the weekend hasn't been terribly exciting so far lol!
    Yesterday i had sort of a PJ day where i got showered and got back in my PJs to spend the day lounging about basically, i do love days like that. I did manage to do loads of housework and 3 lots of laundry though, just have to iron it all now *sigh*
    Dave went off to the United match and I listened to Wednesday on the radio. The did terribly and lost 4-1 but Ipswich do have a strong side.
    Last night we snuggled up and watched Star Wars:The Phantom Menace. Seen it before but we haven't seen all the episodes in order so we said we would like to do that. Am also wanting to buy Rocky Balboa as haven't see it and so have been watching all the Rocky movies to get up to speed. Have just got Rocky V to watch now.
    Today Dave is working til about lunchtime and then we may go out somewhere as the weather is lovely again.
    Am exhausted today though, i had the worst nights sleep ever!
    If you get a chance, don't forget to check out IACW today :)

    Happy Sunday xx

    A great day
    Friday, August 10, 2007
    I've had such a lovely day today. It's not very often DH and I get a day to ourselves, in fact we never do, so it was a lovely change.
    Corey was in nursery all day and Dave was off because he is working on Sunday and so we headed out for the day.
    We headed off early to Rother Valley for a spot of canoeing. I've never done it before so I was a bit apprehensive as I'm not a huge fan of water. Dave had a normal canoe and I had one of the 'sit on top' ones. Anyway I needn't have worried cause I was fine and I really enjoyed myself! Note to self - Empty water out first to avoid very wet bottom!
    Then we headed home for a quick shower and then went out to Ulley to a country pub for lunch. The weather has been fabulous and we had to take shelter cause it was far too hot lol!
    Then off to Meadowhall for a bit of window shopping before heading to the cinema to watch Evan Almighty. I thought it was really funny, Dave thought it was ok! Great film though, would recommend it. Picked Corey up from nursery as it was after 5pm by now and he is now in bed and I'm looking forward to my nachos and cheese whilst watching Big Brother!
    Hope you've all had a great day too!
    Bye xxxxxx

    In the wars!
    Thursday, August 09, 2007
    Yes Corey really has been in the wars these last couple of days.
    Yesterday we went to the ASDA and on the way home he managed to trip up and scraped both knees and his elbow. He was absolutely distraught for a couple of hours and ended up going to sleep for a good hour and a half because he just wore himself out. He's been ok with them today but when i went to pick him up from nursery he was sporting a rather large and deep scratch on his arm. He had apparently been running between rooms and fallen and caught the stair gate. He seems to have forgotten about it now but earlier on he was doing everything one handed!
    Had a trip into the local village this morning to get my nails done and then went and got a bit of shopping. Nothing else much going on today.
    Am looking forward to going canoeing with Dave tomorrow and then maybe some lunch and cinema as Corey is at nursery all day :)
    Also just wanted to say a BIG Happy Birthday to Maria who is the very young age of 40 today. Hope you're having a wonderful day sweetheart!!

    I've promised myself i must take more pictures so this morning the camera has been out already.
    I have been putting off cutting Corey's hair for weeks now and said I would definately do it this morning which i have and here are before and afters lol!

    Here's also a self portrait I did of myself and Corey. Please excuse the no make up and will you look at those wrinkles!

    Nothing much planned today other than a trip to ASDA and housework. Am off out tomorrow AM and then DH and I have all day Friday to ourselves which should be fun!
    Bye for now xx

    Happy Birthday Dad!!!
    Just wanted to send big Birthday kisses to my Dad who is the ripe old age of 73 today! You would never believe it though, he's more like 43 than 73 :)
    Anyway, he's visiting today so he can get his pressies and we've also got him a little cake and Corey is excited to sing Happy Birthday to him!

    So i've been a bad blogger again haven't I! Where has the time gone? I promise i'll post and then seem to get sidetracked! I'm going to try and post everyday, that way I won't forget everything like I have now!

    I can remember what i did at the weekend if that's any good. Had a lovely day in Scarborough on Saturday. Went up on the train and spent the day on the beach with Dave, Corey and some of Daves work colleagues. Weather could have been a bit sunnier but it was very warm. Sunday was an absolute scorcher, haven't felt it that hot since last June/July. We decided to have a BBQ which was lovely and then did a bit of sunbathing, although i could only manage 10 mins at a time. I've been reading a great book called 'The best a man can get' and it's so funny. Every page has me laughing out loud so I would recommend it.
    Yesterday was spent doing the usual housework and ironing and then I had to pop to ASDA to get a few bits. Picked Corey up from nursery and then my sister came to visit.
    I'm now getting into holiday mode. It's 5 wks tomorrow til we head to the gorgeous Ibiza and i'm getting excited now. 2 weeks of lazing about in the sun and eating and drinking loads(although i don't drink i do tend to on holiday). Am trying to do my planning list and will start to get all the stuff now. Am not sure what it's going to be like this time around as it's the first time we've been away with Corey so i'm assuming that it's going to be hard work(although my fabby husband has said he'll do the playing while i chill out(which i wouldn't let him of course!)). We're staying in a hotel which is new for this year and all the reviews have been outstanding, you can see it here.
    Dave has been amazing of late. He's always been an attentive but he's been different recently. Really loving and wanting to do everything for me, even the housework!! He's off out on his latest venture tonight, canoeing, so I may find some time and do some scrapping!
