Happy (belated!) 2010!

Yes,I know I'm a bit late,but better late than never :) Our New Year was a very quiet one.Sadly we didn't go to to the Bowkis bash this year,as we knew the kids wouldn't last til midnight! They proved us right and I had to shake them awake to come and watch the fireworks at midnight!
We have been done a little bit of sale shopping,just little bits & pieces plus boring things like sheets & pillows!:) The girls got some Hello Kitty bargains in John Lewis ,plus half price HK calendars from Clintons.And today I got some very cute wooden star cake decorations which will end up on a LO somewhere!I have also stocked up on some scrapping stuff, namely white alphabets as I am all out of white S's!!And some bling and flowers fell into my basket too :) I also managed to bag a set of Heidi Swapp months of the year stamps from A Trip Down Memory Lane in their sale, which I'm planning on using in some kind of yearbook this year :)
All the decs have now been taken down.It always looks a bit bare afterwards, but the Rockband drums have taken the place of the tree in the window!Maybe I could drape some tinsel round them?!
Huge excitement here as we have finally booked our Florida flights -yipee! We have lots of planning and list making to do in the near future :)
Feels very weird having no Pencil Lines LO to share this week! But I have lots of LO ideas whizzing round my head at the moment, so hopefully I'll get something done soon :)
As today was the girls last day before going back to school, we went to Starbucks for hot chocolate :)And this afternoon I draggged them out to the lakes for a walk and to give my camera an airing :)
Every where was covered in thick frost this morning,and not much thawed during the day.We are forecast more snow for tomorrow - yipee :)
