Shimmelle's class
I took part in shimelle's free online class over the weekend. I will post some pics soon but I am not completly happy with it at the moment. Firstly my photo paper ran out, then my ink cartridge ran out. I could not go and get any printed from the chemist as Daniel still has the chicken pox. I was inpatient to get started without the right equipment so am not happy with it now as a result. But I did enjoy the concept of it and loved putting some thought into it, I even have some more on hold that I will add later on. I also love looking at shimelle's site to see what every one elso has achieved.

On Sunday afternoon, Alex fell of Daniels bunk bed. He landed on a pile of Lego toys (that he had been asked to tidy away, and did not!) His face was all cut up around the eye, so It was all in the car for a trip to A & E. Results where 3 lots of butterfly stitches and a concussion, so a day of school for observations! Daniel is still spotty with the chicken pox as well.

Today was back to college. This semester all my classes are on the same day so its great and cuts down on petrol costs! I am stressed already with the work load. I am doing Principles of ecology and have a 2000 word essay for 30Th March, a 2000 word field study to do, plus 2 PowerPoint research topics. I am also doing marine science and already have a 1500 word essay, 1200 project and PowerPoint presentation plus final exam in may. Those of you who know me will understand how I am looking forward to the PowerPoint presentations, not!

That's all the scrap booking stuff packed away from the table and replaced with college stuff! I will have to limit my crafting to my fortnightly crops. I am going to a scrapbook event in Aberdeen in April which I am looking forward too. we have been issued with a challenge this week, a layout featuring the Selkirk Grace. Not being Scottish, this is going to be a challenge!

Here are a few pics of the kids misfortune this week
