offers and news

Woohoo! Anyone want the chance to WIN a 3 month sub to a super new kit - from sugar-n-spice scrapbook????

Seems like all you have to do is order a kit - any kit - and you get entered into a draw to win a 3 months sub... flippin heck! You can't say fairer than thatnow, can you? I've had a look at the kits and I don't think it would be very hard to persuade yourself that you want (need) one... lol. But don't take my word for it - go look. They're AbFab!

NOT that I can afford one, obviously... but I just thought i'd share a bit of eye candy and let you know about the offer that's going on over there. I really like the look of those ghostie butterflies tho... sigh.

And great news! we've managed to secure the boy a place at College... thank heavens. It's like a weight off my mind, it really is. I've felt sick ever since last thursday, but tonight Vin's looking forward to a whole fresh start - and we're gonna trust that he's learned, and will work hard to prove to himself, and everyone else, that he can do it. And I'm sure he will... but as a precaution we'll be providing more support this time round to ensure he doesn't go off track again :-) It's all we can do.

I was a proud Mum today because despite the knock to his confidence he did really well at his interview and ended up being offered a 2 year National Diploma course which assuming he does ok, would be enough to get him into Uni, or provide plenty of opportunities for employment, even abroad. So.....He starts his induction on Monday!

Lol....Nothing like the deep end eh?

Check out these photos of him at the fun fair in Arrecife last week - on the hammers with Erk.
Classic pics!

Just sitting in the ride... Ah... doesn't look so clever now, does he?
And they're off! Lol!!!

But this is the BEST one!! ROFLOL!!!!

Feelin ok Vin?....And yes... that IS the right way up!

Gotta laugh eh?

More tomorrow! Please say hi if you drop in :-)

So pleased about Vin and by the time he's finished his education nobody will be interested in the GCSEs. Good luck for Monday.

Loving those kits but on a serious economy drive.

Love those piccies and can't wait to see them on a page soon.

Happy Thursday xxx

Fantastic news about Vin's course!! Plenty of opportunity ahead for him, I'm sure he will do you proud.
Very nice kits. I subscribe to Studio Calico & can't afford others for a while, say a year!!!!
Trouble is finding the time to scrap, I had so many gorgeous goodies & only managed 2 pages at the weekend!!
