Here's hoping....

....that I have done what I was supposed to do to make sure my blog doesn't disappear into a black hole in cyber space and is still here tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed for me!
I have been meaning to post for a while but after weeks of miserable weather that made me feel grumpy and we've had a bit of a heatwave and I've forgotten to blog!
Hopefully I will be back soon !

Um...did I break it?!

So after the very weird layout of my last post, I was put off posting again, but really I need to check what I have done!So this will be like a test post before I get my blog technical advisor (ie Anna!) to check what I have done wrong! The problem with my blog is that I didn't set it up myself all those years ago,and I didn't do any of the template updates either (yep, that was Anna!) so I don't have much of a clue what to do if it goes wrong! So I am going to post this and add a photo and see what happens this time.....

Random photo of Holly when we went back to the bluebell a couple of weeks ago :) They have been no where near as lovely ones last year ,due to such rubbish weather for the last month!
Anyway, I may be back soon depending if I can get the layout problems sorted!

How to wear out an 11 year old...

Last Friday Holly had a very busy day:) At school she took part in a sponsored welly walk to raise funds for the PTA.Then in the evening she took part in swimming a smile for Sport Relief with Guides.We very rarely go swimming,so although Holly loves to swim underwater when we have the pool up in the summer,she is not used to swimming up and down lengths of a large public pool.So you can imagine how proud I was of her on Friday when she managed to swim 54 lengths!! She didn't quite make it to a mile but she didn't want to give up and they had to almost pull her out of the pool!She won a prize her for her perseverance and persistent! And promptly slept for 12 hours once we were home!
The weather was pants almost all weekend,wet and windy :( Yesterday it managed to stay dry til late evening,it made such a change! And then today having been boiling hot walking back from town at about 3pm ,I got totally drenched picking up Holly from her after school club! I actually gota layout done a couple of days ago using some of my photos from when Em and I went to Covent Garden a couple of the weeks back.I used some of the new Amy Tangerine papers,which I love with the colours of the photos:) The star border along the top of the photos is some self adhesive KI Memories ribbon which I got in Florida,I'm glad I've finally used some! The tag looks a bit wonky as I realised after taking the photo that I hadn't stuck it on and it had slipped - whoops!
