An Award and some quickies Blog candy alert

Good morning to you all. Its raining here, infact its chucking it down!! my Rocky Bear has given up and is laying down asleep. No chance of me walking him in this weather this morning im afraid!!!

Well things here have been hectic since i came back from holiday. I tried to catch up with my blogging last night only to realize that for some unknown reason all the blogs i had been following have been wiped from my dashboard!!!! i can not believe it. I am slowly going back adding you all, but apologise if ive not yet got round to you, please bare with me.

Unfortunately ive had personal problems come to the forefront here again. I have in the past had problems with my eldest son. Unfortunately things have re-surfaced, we are sorting through things as i speak, but due to this i might have to take a break from my blogging. I will try and post when i can, and visit you when i can, but for the time being my priority is the home front. I never thought parenting would be easy, but neither did i realize it would be sooooooo hard, im constantly feeling a failure as a mother, we should be able to protect our children from everything bad, but unfortunately it seems i have not managed to do this!

I hope you are all having a better week than me. There are a couple of quick makes that i made a while back but hadn't got round to posting, and im working on some more cards as we speak.

Enjoy your day and will be in touch again soon.

I was so honoured to receive this gorgeous award from my lovely friend Dena, if you havn't seen
Denas work you must go take a look she is a very talented lady!! Thank you Dena.

First of all Linda really beautiful cards especially the pink one, super cute!
Secondly I lost my dashboard for 24 hours yesterday but it has come back on it's own, be patient.
And lastly, kids bring so many problems and they actually get worse as they get older. Hold on tight till the rides over and one day you'll look back and say well we got through it.
Hope everything comes right for you love,
