Long time, no post :(

Sorry not been around for months :(

So am sending everyone belated New Year Greetings and will try and catch up with a few blogs, but of course cannot catch up on all the months I have missed as expect you've all been very busy, lol

A quick update on my life since I last blogged.

I have been crafting on and off (mainly off, cos of decorating round Sam's)

Donated my 50th pint of blood back in August

Became a nanny in November, yes November, I know it should have been December, but my grandson William didn't want to wait till then and came 5 weeks early, which was a bit of a shock as my daughter was at work when her waters broke.

So William was born on the 14th November and weighed in at 6lb 1oz so had a good weight behind home and was home within 5 days. She had a few problems with him feeding but is now thriving and weighed in at 8lbs 13.5oz at 7 weeks old. He was named after my late father-in-law which my husband is chuffed about, and as you can imagine we all dote on him.

I am hoping to have a Tuesday as a 'me' day, saying that, I was doing Steven's accounts today, (the downside to him having direct payments), but I did go out with a friend for mooch round the shops and a spot of lunch yesterday, so that made up for it.

Tomorrow I have to be the bad guy twice, as going with Sam to take William for his first injection and Stevens has hossie appointment in the afternoon, so will have to bring him back from his day centre early.

Steven is doing OK and seems to have taken to William. OK on Boxing Day when we asked him if he wanted to hold William, he went to push him away (I was holding William at a safe distance, am used to doing that with drinks lol) but by the tone of his voice, it was a no, we think he was William'd out lol.

But he seems to be happy for him to visit and happy for him to go, lol. The other day when he was here, I was holding William and Steven wanted a DVD on, so my mum and Sam both offered to do it for him, but no he wanted his mum, lol. Which I did, while holding William, (am used to that, as Sam was as bad when Steven was born wanting me to do do things for her and not her dad). Steven was fine after that and was quite happy to give symbols to one of the others after that. I think he just wanted to check I was there when he needed me and of course I will be.

I will hopefully blog some of the cards I made during last year and hopefully new things when I do them on my 'me' day
