Man Flu!!!

Man Flu has hit the Wright household!!!

I joke, but Carl really isn't well!! he's been on 12 hour night shifts all week, so he's knackered, and then the Man Flu hit him!!! he's been in bed all day today with a raging temperature, but he got up earlier and looks abit better. but, when his cold and flu tablets wear off, he's back to square one!! Hopefully it won't last too long, and he won't pass it on to me or Daniel.

Managed to get a couple of cards made today, between shopping, baking and sorting out Daniel and his cousin, who came to stay. I decided I would have a go at Iris Folding, and I must admit I could be hooked. here's a couple of pix of the 2 cards I made.

Half Term Hols

it's half term here in rainy North East this week, and I'm off for a couple of days with Daniel.

Today we went to the Blue Reef Aquarium, which was very interesting, (and very full aswell, coz I think the whole of the North East was there!!!)

We then went to a place called 'Paint Pots'. It's one of those places where you pick a blank plate, mug, etc, and paint it!! You then leave it there for them to glaze and fire it, and then you go back a few days later to pick it up. Daniel painted a mug, and I painted a small plant pot, which wil be used to store pens on my desk. It cost us a fortune, but was good fun and wasted a couple of hours.
I'll post some pix when we get the stuff back.

Staying in tomorrow, or maybe just a wander around the shops - Daniel did what he wanted today, my turn tomorrow!!!!!

I got promoted today!!!

well sort of!!!

I was third in command on my section, but someone's leaving next week, which makes me second in command!!!!

My boss is hardly ever there as he has lots of other things to do - so guess who'll be in charge - starting from Monday!!!!!

last member of the family - Snowy!

This is Snowy, our dog.

We got her from the kennels in June when Carl changed his job. I'd never had a dog before and wasn't sure how I'd take to her - but wouldn't be without her now!!!

We think she's 3 and we're not sure of her history. She's very nervous around strangers and other dogs, but very loving when she knows you.

meet my family

here's my lovely husband, Carl and son, Daniel.

Carl and I have been married for almost 15 years, after meeting each other drunk outside a Chinese takeaway!!!

Daniel is our pride and joy. Especially after his bad start in life - he was born 10 weeks premature, weighing only 2lbs 11oz!!! As you can see now, he is fully recovered and no-one suspects the start he had.

Blogging at last!!!

thought about doing this Blog stuff for a while now, but never got round to it. So what better time to start than 12.44 am on a Saturday morning!!!!!

I'm not really a 'little dragon', and for all those of you that know me, you'll know where that comes from!! But, for those of you that don't, I'll let you know - I collect Pocket Dragons, just like this one. (he's called 'I smell chocolate', so he's very like me!!) Unfortunatley, the company that make these little cuties, don't any more!! so I'll be relying on old stock in shops and good old ebay!!
