I stitch

See, i do still stitch! Thats a Passione Ricamo freebie ive been working on. Shes put on hold at the moment whilst i work on a Christmas exchange for Rowyn.

Life continues to fly by. Unfortunately in the last week my Gran was in hospital (slight stroke) and my uncle in still in hospital after a tumour was found in his stomach. We are still waiting to hear the results of that but we're not anticipating good news. Funny how bad things seem to come all at once. As well as this, we have a merger looming at work so who knows what the fall out from that will be. Job cuts i'm sure. The governments spending cuts are going to have a drastic affect on voluntary sector organisations. March 2011 is going to be a bad time.

On a more positive note i did win the JCS 2010 Christmas ornie magazine from Maggie O. Yeah! I never buy it here because it costs so much more. I cant bring myself to pay £8 for a magazine, especially now i only work part-time LOL Last year Clare in Canada really kindly sent me a copy as a gift. This year i won one!! Woohoo!

Caleb has a Halloween party at nursery on Friday so i need to sort him out a costume. I'm really not a fan of Halloween at all. I don't mind fun dressing up though so i'll find him a nice costume...find it some time in between working the rest of the week and a couple of nights out as well....ah life!

Scottish/Canadian Thanksgiving

My medals. Im so proud of medals. I ran two 10ks in September in case i haven't mentioned it enough haha
Last weekend was thanksgiving in Canada and to make DH feel part of life back home, we had our own wee thanksgiving meal.....turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes and veg. I was very proud of my efforts. I even made little Canadian flag name tags for the 3 of us :-) We thought it would be a nice tradition to start for Caleb, even though he had about 2 mouthfuls of the whole meal aaahhhh toddlers!!!
Another week has flown by and we have a busy weekend ahead. Caleb has been going to nursery 2 mornings a week for just over a month now. We had a difficult few weeks when he was hysterical when we left him but that has passed and he now seems to love it! It is such a relief and so cute to see him run in to join his wee friends and shout "bye mumma!"

Still here

Gosh I havent blogged in a month. Just dropping by to say im still here!

My last post was about that 10K i ran......well i did the second one and beat my time by 2 minutes so was happy with that!

My weeks are busy and time passes so quickly. Caleb will be 2 in 3 months time - i cant believe that! Look at my big boy now (yes, in the rain, as is usual in this blooming country)
Done a little bit of stitching recently, i'll post a picture soon. After Caleb goes to bed at night i get the house kind-of-tidy, get organised for the next day, watch some mindless tv and then im exhausted and ready for bed - not time for much else at the moment!

Anyone on facebook? Let me know! Im better with that because its on my phone.
