Yet more snow!

So we woke to more snow this morning. I'm getting rather bored with this now, it was nice to begin it's just inconvenient now. So it means another day off school for Charlotte, they only went back to school yesterday, and that wasn't even a full day it was only 10-2.30pm. I feel sorry for the school as on Monday they worked really hard to clear the snow, even got a tractor in to help. I'm hoping that tomorrow they will open the school, Charlotte is bored and I haven't been able to get on with much stuff although today I have written a list and have achieved 7 out of the 10 things so I'm pretty happy with that.

I had some mincemeat left over from Christmas so I thought I would make so mince pies, we love them in our house so I'm guessing they won't hang around long, I've had two already *crumbs being dropped*. I wouldn't get any points for presentation and most of the pies have oused as I always put to much filling in them, but my Mum says they always the best ones.

A good friend of mine had a baby last week. When I spoke to her yesterday I explained that I hadn't got her a card yet but will do, she replied saying 'well aren't you going to make me one, I do love your cards'. So this was one of the things to complete today. Now you all know that I'm not a card maker and only make them either when I'm in the mood or for a special occasion. I struggled with this one but I'm quite pleased with the results and I know Kate will like it, it's the thought that counts.

As for scrapbooking well it's been on the back burner over the last week, I'm trying to complete one for this weeks weekly challenge to get some points for the Crafty Magpies. On that note I'm having such fun with the girlies over on UKScrappers what a friendly bunch they are. I am taking part in the CJ's , swaps and even a retreat in November which I'm very excited about, and the cottage that Karen has booked looks fantastic.

I have finished my sketch for Sarah's Cards but can't reveal it yet as it hasn't gone live, but as soon as it has I'll pop it on.

As always thanks for popping by.
