About Me and my Craft Shed

My photo

Born in London, but been living in Leicestershire since 1988.

I have been a Showaddywaddy fan since I first saw them on New Faces in 1973, and have finally started being able to get to their concerts since December 2012, although can only get to those in the Midlands area.

I have been a crafter since I was a child, and do many varied crafts.  At present I am working on a Scrapbook documenting Showaddywaddy from their start to the present - 2013 being their 40th year.

They have arrived - Welcome Scarlett and Chloe.

Well Folks - the 2 little girls have finally arrived, Jenna had her Daughter on 26 June 2009 - early hours delivered safely by C Section Scarlet weighed in at 9lbs 3oz, and I have to say she is lovely.

Lindsay was due to have her little girl on 4 July, but she was obviously far too comfy in there, as she arrived 10 July 7.54pm (UK time) named Chloe Louise and weighing 8lbs 8oz.

Well - as it is now my Birthday and Wedding Anniversary, and my Husband is taking me out for a meal tonight, I will take myself off to bed - that's the place they put most Great Aunties I think, along with their knitting - except I don't do much knitting - lots of other things though.

I'll probably pop on during the day sometime, but I have 2 dogs to bath as well as get myself ready for the evening. But will come back and give a report of the meal - I'm feeling hungry already lol

I had this in my email, and I quite like it,

Grant me the senility
to forget the people

I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones I do,

The eyesight to tell the difference.

as sometimes there are people who for what ever reason are in your life, either by birth, accident or being just plain stubborn. Some of them are nice, polite caring people - who you would love to have as family, and some of them your positive that they are only there to try and bring you down, tread all over you and any feelings you have, not for any other reason than they just can, and if there is a reason why they treat you so badly, they will never ever tell you, but don't dare to say anything bad about them, as of course it will all be made to look untrue as it is another of the games they seem to have time to play. We all have these sort of people in our lives I'm sure - making out your so bad, spreading untrue gossip about you, so that in the end it will hurt you. Well worry no more - next time your feelings are hurt by them take a look at this picture I found - this can be you showing your feelings towards them.

I know this is not craft related, but sometimes we all go off on a tanget, or need to express how we are feeling at that particular time, and this is my blog, so if you don't like it, you don't have to visit again. If on the other hand, you feel this is directed at you, tell me why, and then I can let you know if it is directed at you, but remember it could be multiple people. I know already that people have told lies about me, and sooner or later they will trip themselves up.
