Here is where I show you how quickly I turned a neat work area in to a .... hive of industry ?? ...nope .... a creative hot spot?? .... naah ........... a mess ....yep.
I am glad I managed to keep the shot to only the mat area, as the rest of the table would give Paige and the other tidy organized scrappers a funny turn. I haven't done a lot of crafting this week but I did made 4 toppers for Xmas cards yesterday .... must buy some cards to mount them on ....very soon. I wish someone would explain how I make so much mess and have so little to show for it. The photo makes it look not too bad ....believe me ...the truth be told ....it is bad.
Family history is what has absorbed my attention and time this week. I have come across two cousins x ???, who are descendants of the siblings of David Ritchie ( the LO I blogged 1/11 ... G the P)
It is so exciting but there is so much to take in and really I need to be shut away for a week with intravenous coffee, an endless supply of cake ... and the computer. I find that I need to really get into who's who, imagine the people, their parents and their children .... then everything makes sense and my train of thought and deduction works well, spotting any errors in logic as I go along.
However ...... just at that point I need to go to the loo as there is only so long I can hold it lol ... answer the phone ... go to make food and drink ... fill the washing machine ...wash up ... stretch the aged legs that have now gone numb and the back that has seized ....and worry that I am doing this and not something else, that would be deemed more important by everyone else.
The boys are doing well and now manage to walk with their walker trolleys ... Jake is about to take off on his own any day now but Ben climbs into Jakes trolley and is quite happy to be pushed lol. It is so difficult to monitor their development as they were not only premature but are twins. Their parents have rightly decided that .. as long as they are developing well ...they are happy. They are a little annoyed that they have been told that the boys are under weight ....believe me they are not skinny. Emms is feeding them healthy food and the odd treat so that they keep slim ... ish, as we tend to be an overweight family. I think it makes sense ... especially as the NHS complain about obese toddlers nowadays!!!! The chart weight for a one year old is now about 27lbs !!!!! When Steve was that at one, they said he was over weight ????
Had my moan ....thanks foe listening .... lol
Take Care xx
