We are finally home from a quick visit to england to visit Keith's mum, who is recovering from a serious operation. The journey took over 9 and a half hours as the weather was really bad and windy.

The trip was really pleasant in the circumstances. I had all my hair cut off and went for a chin length bob, which I havent had for 6 years. I went shopping in all the local craft shops for more scrapbooking stash. I got some loverly 7 gypsies paper and some gorgues Dove craft papers (Just for looking at I think). I meet up with Jenny for the first time since moving to scotland. I also had a unexpected meet with Yvonne and her family. Yvonne was one of my closest friend thru school and our early exploration of the pub scene. We had a great time remembering some of the dodgy things we did when we were younger. I was reminising recently as I spotted Yvonne on friends reunited. This promted me to find some old photo's. I actually found Yvonne's 18th birthday pics, showing Helen and Carol (Yvonne's sisters) and Alison who I have known since I was 5 years old and Jenny. Hopefully I can put the pics on the blog-permission pending.

We also got to spend alot of time with Michael my brother and Gemma his girlfiriend. The kids love spending time with mookie who gets them hysterical and then hands them back to us. The boys also love Gemma and would really like her to become Aunty Gemma.

Popped in to see Auntie Chrissie and Uncle Michael. Michael is looking really well after his last lot of chemo. He has started swimming daily and taking the dog for long walks, and it shows.

We are starting our diet today. Salad and jacket spud for tea today. Going to try and fit some exercise into the schedule again.

I had a really bad day at work today. I shall so no more on the subject as I am really angry. I am going to college tomorrow so I think I will find out about grants and stuff. I am seriously fed up with work at the moment. I want to be a full time grungy student and part time scrapbooker!!!

I have some Scrapbooking ideas running around my head at the moment and lots of challenges to complete. I still have the mixed media thing fro the Aberdeen event to complete, a LO using lots of photos and I have to practice making my own stamps!!!!

That's the mammoth post over with, as its back to the college work tonight. I have to do research on El Nino, boring and the contents of soils, even more boring, yawn, yawn
