Stolen heart.....

Afternoon everyone,  did everyone have some lovely weather yesterday in the UK? It was lovely and sunny here yesterday, great for getting clothes dried especially towels, ahh the simple pleasures of line dried towels!lol. 
My kids are off school and nursery till tuesday as its inservice days then the springbreak, bit optimistic there calling it spring break! dont you think? I had one of those days yesterday where Alex and Maya fought over EVERYTHING!!! seriously even down to who got the bit of the banana with the skin! I got to the point I just walked away and left Maya to scream, which thankfully worked. As soon as she realised that she wasnt getting any attention she very quickly stopped (for 2 mins, till the next argument!) I have never been so happy to get them into their beds last night. Then I spent the next two hours talking to Meghan about some school/friends/boys!!/life  problems and generally putting the world to rights, I was in the bath while she was perched on a  little step stool! Dont get me wrong I am thrilled she talks about everything with me but I like a good soak in the bath with my ipod, thats my chill out time. Not so chilled out last night lol!

 Anyhoo the reason for todays post is to share a card I made the other day, just because!, its nice to do a card for the fun of sometimes, not for any specific challenge or for a dt. If it fits a challenge then even better

Wonderful card kat.. I have alot of days like that..My boys just seem to argue all of the time, but I think it'smy youngest that causes it most of the time... He's in the terrible twos as my nan used to say. lol.. He's three in April so fingers crossed he gets out of it then.. lol (I wish) Hope you have had a better day today..
