Marching in...

The new month that is, I'm creeping in quietly. I have slipped back into bad blogger territory.8 days since my last post, and after I was posting daily too..tut tut!!!
Anyhoo..there hasn't been much to say..the lack of proper daylight and complete boredom with life in general, meant I was so miserable I was not liking my own company, so I doubt anyone else would want to hear about it!!

March is my true start of the year, my birthday is in March, and my wedding anniversary now too which gives something to look forward to, (then April is Spring, May is almost summer, June, July, August - summer..and then September means I can make festive plans..and October and November too..December brings the festivities, so just January and February to be miserable!!!), and I was delighted to see the sun on the 1st day of my year :D

So as I said I haven't been up to much so not much to show and tell.

There are some works in progress.....

also a couple of swap makes started, that can't be shown ;)
little peep of a gift made for someone special.....
some new technology to get to grips with...a new camera - a replacement for the one lovely husband dropped last month whilst under the influence....thank goodness for replacement product insurance :D
No idea what I'm doing with it..I need point and press and its not playing nicely. I need to read the manual I think.

And this...
(I got it so that I didn't have to be a slave to the laptop,...but I think I shall be becoming a slave to the blackberry instead!!! Mine is purple not black..its stunning...and I'm not a gadgety person!!!!)
This week has been a busy one..parents evening with an hours notice - thank you W, letters from school need to be given to mum!! Parents Forum meeting at A's high school and a scary but exciting meeting with the bank manager. I also spent a morning doing some housekeeping on my laptop, someone had downloaded about a trillion games onto it!! Tonight the work is not over, C's school celebrates the event that is World Book Day....please dress up your child..oh joy!!

(jaded mother I'm afraid., this is my 3rd time round, so apologies to any teachers who may be reading..I am all for parental involvement, I listen to my Reception aged child read daily...but making costumes...nooooooooooo thank you!!!!)
I made a bear costume for C to wear tomorrow, but his class is using the Harry and his bucket of dinosaurs books in Maths - I say Maths, he is 4..its counting!!!!, so he wants to wear a 10 year old dinosaur costume from our dress up box!!! (there is always next year!!)
My old time management problems are rearing their ugly head again, but I am hopeful that I can be back in a day or so with more awful pics off the new camera....

I've hit a blogging blackhole over the last week too Claire .... hate the bliddy winter .... thank goodness the days are getting longer and lighter .... March birthday here too and once that's here I know I'm over the worst and get a new lease of life. The sunshine of the past few days has helped and just a little thing like getting washing dried outside has put a spring in my step.

That Blackberry looks useful and since my lot got phones that they can connect to the internet with I get the lappy all to myself x

I can sympathise entirely- Just finished making hurriedly a cape for "bat Girl" for World Book Day (note given out Tuesday - optional dressing up!)Super Heroes for girls is not easy - think there will be a lot of Cat women...............

World book day here too, yuk!!
Luckily I only have one in school and he wanted to go as Jamie from Dinosaur cove. Not too difficult and NO making involved. Phew.
You have a very exciting month coming up, how lovely.
Hope you manage to work out the camera.
Love Rachael XX

I have the dreaded dressing up day tomorrow (well not me but dd). She is going as Angelina Ballerina in a tutu etc. Not very exciting and nothing that I have made but promised myself I'll make more effort when she is old enough to care! We'll see though! xx

We were struggling for a costume last night as well. Mine is going as Indiana Jones, just about to add the stubble when he gets dressed!

I can relate to the late letters & time management stuff.

Fortunately no dressing up here today - think last year LS cheated and wore his M&S Harry Potter costume (again).

Oh the joys of being a parent!!

and remember all the best peeps have March birthdays ;)

Sarah said...

We're lucky - no dressing up at our school - just bring in your favourite book. My 10 yr old thought it appropriate to take in his Chelsea 2010 football annual....

Another March birthday here too! Not forgetting mothers day of course.
It was me who had to dress up for book day in this household as I work in a primary. Dragged out my trusty Cat in the Hat yet again - must think of something different for next year.

How's your blackberry. I have one through work but it's been great for blogging but I think I'm going to get one personally so I can hook up my personal email accounts and things
