Tag, you're it!

Hi everyone, long time no bloggy! It's been a funny old time in the Dingle household, Amelia has been in hospital for an operation and it has taken almost two weeks to get her back to school, me back to work and ANY sort of routine back into place.

Still, I have ventured into my little craft room and thought I'd ease myself back into crafting with something really simple and easy to pick up and put down. I had the tags and hearts already cut so all I had to do was play with a few inks, attack the hearts with an embossing folder and finish with some metallic rub-ons.

Not sure what I am going to do with these YET but I may try some different colourways today and even make a matching card!

Hectic Half Term Holidays!

Half term has been a bit of a mixture of emotions. We had a lovely meal out for Amelia's 11th Birthday, ate far too much I am afraid but what else are birthdays for?

Yesterday the postman delivered a proposed, amended statement for us to look over ready for transition to Secondary School in September next year. I am afraid the thought of the whole statementing procedure has opened up some very bitter wounds. It's not like we have had any choice in what school she can attend, well not unless we fight to get her out of Medway and into Kent somewhere. 

We also received the letter from the hospital giving us the date for Amelia's operation, not exactly a good news day but hey ho. 

We finished off our Saturday with a visit to the local fireworks display. It is something we haven't done for years and years because Amelia just couldn't tolerate it all. It was still quite a draining process rather than a fun evening out with the family but we did it, despite the fact that I had to stand holding Amelia's ears with her wrapped up in scarves hats and hoods to muffle the noise! 

We got home and finished the evening off with a nice hot curry and a glass or two of wine.
