panicky times

Ho hum...not coping too well this week...
True, there's some good things happening - like me getting my puppy... the chi puppy i've yearned for for almost 5 years now... but there's also a lot of other stuff going on, and after the crap year i've had it's taking it's toll. I'm utterly worn out and feeling pretty damn close to breaking tbh.

I keep trying to push it all down and stay on top but it's hard when you constantly feel on the verge of being engulfed. I need that Euro lotto win tonight... I know they say money can't buy happines but it can buy a lot of other stuff! Like a puppy passport...And a ticket round the world.... and that sounds pretty damned tempting from where i'm sitting.

PUPPY UPDATE: cha cha is now eating solid food and is growing bigger every day!

Isn't she just the cutest thing you've ever seen?

And somehow I managed to do a quickie Hybrid LO, though really i've no time at all at the mo. It's just a simple page, though there was quite a bit of cutting out, but I loved the doodles.. and I LOVED the pics - and how could I resist when they went together so well?

Doodles are Kate Hadfield's. Safari Malarky and Spring Greens available from the Lilypad.

Pedal Power

So the holidays are well and truly over. Vin's back to college this week and my tan's fading fast... Still, we had a lovely fortnight in Lanzarote with the family, met our brand new Grandson, spent lots of time playing with our other Grandkids, chilled out, got sunburnt, and ate and drank too much. Yep - heaven :-)

I've managed to get a quick hybrid page done this morning. These doodles from Kate Hadfield were just perfect for the pics of our day out in Matagorda on the 4 wheel bike. If you've never ridden one of these let me tell you it's... an experience. Lol. Absolutely mad - but such a laugh. The truth is whoever was steering - and I never knew who it was but I knew it wasn't me... then we were all over the place. Great fun! However, I spent most of the time taking the pictures... I value my life - crap as it is much of the time ;-).

Are we there yet?

Happy Memories :-)

long time no post

Well it's been a very long break without a post from me. I've been unbelievably busy (still am as a matter of fact...) and that's meant I've not had much time for playing on the pc. Not had much time for any kind of playing tbh, so even scrapbooking - once a daily activity, has had to take a back seat. I still love scrapping/crafting etc but unchecked I can let it get in the way of other important things, so i've decided that for now it'll have to go on the back burner until I find time management a bit easier... Also, I'm seriously going to sort this room out and de-junk - it's too small a room and there's too much stuff in here taking up space and not being used. So clear out time at last.

The GOOD news today however... the GREAT news today...Is that one of my dreams is finally coming true.... after almost five years of pining for meemee...I'm going to be getting a Chihuahua puppy of my own!

I am. I am. I am! Not might be... not one day maybe... just... I am. I really am.

Deposit's paid, puppy's chosen, she's named, and first cuddles by us have been shared... So she's ours! :-)

Just need to let her grow a bit now and become big enough to leave her Mum, and then she's here.... with us... forever. I can't wait. Her Mexican name is Muchacha, but she'll just be Cha Cha to us, and the breeders are kindly already calling her that already so she's getting used to hearing her name :-)

Here she is just 12 days old, cradled in her new daddy's hands....

Look at that cute lil face! Still got her eyes shut here.

I can't believe she's mine... I love her to pieces.

And here with Vin, who's besotted already.

At the mo she's only a little over 2 weeks old, and her eyes opened on the 14th day. She's a light sable colour with dark tips... muzzle, ears and tail - what could be sweeter? But we know she could change as she grows, however, we're getting photo updates from the breeders, and we are of course welcome to visit anytime.

Eyes open now - 14days old.

Sooo stand by for the CHIHUAHUA layouts from ME folks!!
