Not Sure About This One!

Monday morning again and was sat here pondering what fun and games this week will bring! Had a great day yesterday, even though I wasn't feeling 100% (managed to get a stinkin' cold from somewhere). The boys had fun with Lewis and Paul while me and Vanessa did plenty of chatting!! We swapped some images and I got my favourite from her - Daisy which I couldn't wait to colour in. In fact, while the boys were in the bath, I coloured her in and put a card together but not completely happy with it.



Don't get me wrong, I'm pleased with how Daisy has turned out but not sure about the papers I've used. They're Basic Grey Two Scoops. Added some flowers and a couple of sparkly brads but no sentiment at the moment. Just feel that maybe my choice of papers were a bit "busy". Not to worry as I've got plenty more "Daisies" on my desk and will have another go with something less fussy.

We had our first little bit of snow this morning and wow, were the kids excited! We don't usually get any being right by the sea and in the south of England but their little faces were a picture!! I've got so much to do today but think I'm going to have a hot drink and then a lie down as I feel like cr*p!! The work will have to wait until later in the hope that I feel better - that's the trouble with being a single Mum though, you have to do it eventually! At least I do have the chance for some quiet time unlike you working Mums out there. Hope you all have a good day whatever you're doing.
