Over The Rainbow

Good day peeps did you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year? With all the madness of christmas it's been weeks since my last post and today is my first of the new year.

Christmas day was full of excitement from the minute the children woke up to find that santa had been and filled their stockings full of goodies. They seemed to be more excited about the half bitten carrot that was left than the actual presents but that's kids for you, and we all know they are a bit unpredictable at times lol

New Years Eve was celebrated with close friends of mine,of course as usual we ate too much and drank too much pink champagne and we somehow managed to play trivial pursuit. Which to my surprise my team won, I think luck was on my side that night lol Either that or I was less tipsy than everyone else lol

But it hasn't all been happiness, I've really struggled this week with a bad cold and not so good news from my best friend. And no matter how strong you try to be, desperately holding back the tears, they come in floods and your left wondering are they ever going to stop and how much longer is this pain going to last. Everyday I live in hope that everything will be ok, now why didn't I wish for that magic wand that makes everything better lol.

But on a more positive note over at Charisma we have our first challenge of the year and after the horrific storms we have had this week I could do with some sunshine. Leah has chosen the the theme

over the rainbow

and we have some fabulous prizes up for grabs.For more details pop on over here

I made this card for Lewis's 3rd birthday and decided to use bright colours. I'm not a huge Edwin fan but I do love my superhero.

I'll be back later tonight with some super exciting news, if you happen to follow me on facebook then you will already know, if not you'll just have to wait lol

hugs to you all
