The Easter bunny is on it's way.

What a crazy day it's been today. I have hardly been in the house. I have just dropped Charlotte back at school as they are having a film evening at school, they had a choice of 5 films and she chose to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks. They went in there pj's and took a cushion to sit on. She really is gaining more confidence and it's fantastic to see her going off doing things without me with her.

So we went to see Charlotte's teachers on Thursday and to say that we are proud parents is an understatement. Anyone that has been reading my blog or that knows Charlotte will know that she is very shy and lacks in confidence but just over the past couple of months she has really started to come out of her shell. As she lacked confidence so much the teachers couldn't really assess her and see what she was capable of doing, but now she is more willing they have moved her up 2 groups, she knows all her high frequency words (and is learning even more), is whizzing through the books, she is even trying to write sentences and stories. I'm so proud of her as this hasn't been easy for her. I have to say the school and the teachers have been so patient with her.
Not much is happening in the way of crafting apart from this quick card that I made for a friend of mine. She is going through a really tough time at the moment and thought this might cheer her up. It's quite sweet but there is still room for improvement, so I'm hoping to learn a few tips from Debs at the Bromsgrove crop this Saturday, were she will be teaching a class. Her cards are fab so will share the results next week.

I have to say that I am looking forward to Easter. We have booked tickets to go and see Nanny McPhee on Good Friday afternoon. In the morning we have to go and buy our hot cross buns (so Charlotte has told me).

I hope to share some layouts soon.



  1. Isn't it amazing how much they grow up between 4 and 5? Sounds like she is doing really well at school, children like Charlotte make working in reception so rewarding xxx

  2. Your card is gorgeous Claire and thats great news to hear that Charlotte is doing so well, you deserve to be a proud Mum xxx
