Toadstool House giveaway

The lovely Julie from A Tale from Toadstool House is having a great giveaway, why not pop over and check it out.

With Amy now settled in college you'd think I'd be back to some routine, nah! My bearmaking is still on hold. I really am going to have to give myself a kick up the bum. Can't blame it on anything but laziness. I could go do some sewing now but I'd rather read some blogs.....

Schools out for ever!

I know lots of bloggers have children starting or going back to school and lets face it, it feels very much like we're doing the starting or going back. Amy was only just 16 a few weeks back and starts college on thursday. Oh for the building to look like this one, Clifton college but its a year old sixth form college. Her secondary school was also a brand new building.

We went for her interview the other week and I'm so happy (think Amy is LOL) that she is going to be doing three years instead of the usual two. I feel as if we've got back a year stolen due to her being so young. If she had been born one week later she'd be in her last year of school.

So lets hope any of 'us' who are starting school, college, university survive the week!

Line up in a straight line, walk don't run, it will soon be friday night.....
