What a mess!

Yep the builders came bright and early this morning and by mid afternoon they had got as far as they can go with the build, we have to wait now until Thursday first thing for the scaffolders to do the '2nd lift' to enable the boys to finish the brick work. The carpenter has been and measured up for the roof trusses etc so by Friday afternoon (weather permitting) we should be ready for the roofer early next week! But boy have they left a lot of mess, bits of brick, cement splats etc so Matthew is out with the brush having a quick clear up as I type!!

I tried to take Lillie back to school a day early today LOL!!!! We were ready on time with no rushing about no fuss, and on the way to school I saw no other children, no other parents and no lollipop lady?? Nearly turned back but thought perhaps the clock was considerably slow and the children by chance had gone in a parents gone home. But no we saw one of Lillie's teachers and she said no they start back tomorrow derrrr......!!!! But I do have a school list of dates saying that the summer term starts on the 8th, all be it an old one!!! Hollie played with one of the teachers whilst I did the paperwork with the other, we are going to have no trouble with her at all, she can't wait, and to my surprise she is going full time from the off no breaking them in this time, they said they will keep an eye on them and if they think it's too much to soon then they'll reduce the days for a while.

Only got one card made today (in between making coffee and bacon rolls and teacher visits, oh and shopping!) and that's for a friend from the forum, whilst out with another forum friend she fell and broke her hip, so this is for her wishing her a speedy recovery
it is also my offering for the 'Time to Craft' their challenge this week is to add stiching to your work, be it real or not! The flowers are cut out from the backing paper and I curled the petal with my nails, they look nice in rea life!!
The following picture is of the 4 decoupaged atc's that I have made for an organized swap on the forum
