Happy Thursday all,

I hope everyone had a fantastic christmas, I've had a bit of a new look (well my blog anyway) - this is for a few reasons, but mainly because i have sponsors!!! YAY :D......... if you fancy sponsoring my blog let me know ( There will be some fabby interviews and giveaways coming up soon.

Speaking of giveaways, the winner of Roberta's gorgeous pink monster giveaway is CARMEN - drop me an email with your address and I'll get it passed over. And congrats hun.

I haven't done much in the last week or so - I've had the stupid flu, right over christmas - AGAIN!! I still feel pretty lousy but I'm looking forward to 2011....... trying new things, starting my OU course and just getting on with life!!! We did have a good christmas - and our usual family party on Boxing Day which was great. This year we decided to get a Wii, sewing machine and Ipod between the 3 of us.... but I also got some yummy papers, fabric and my Mum got me some scrummy wool - so I shall be knitting some fabby things for a while.

Today my MIL and I hit the sales - they werent' great but I don't think our flu filled ways helped..... we did get some more fabric tho (just have to figure out the sewing machine now), I got a circular knitting needle, a pattern and some more wool. We also got a rotary cutter. I'm excited to get started on making things.

My OU course starts in about 6 weeks time - I'm a little nervous but so excited too. I love studying and I'm hoping we get to do some projects - I'm such a project geek.... it's a little sad I'm afraid.

In about 2 weeks time our friends Neil and Caroline are getting married - so Jay and I are headed down south for their wedding - I'm not even sure what to wear to a wedding. I've only been to 1 and that was mine....... HA!! I'm sure I will figure something out.

In other news - the boys are doing good, although they've both had flu......... they loved christmas and I just had to share this photo on my blog, they are so in love with music just now so we got them a trumpet, a saxophone and a microphone:

Such posers right???

I think that's me for now, I'll be back soon with a new years post. We're having a quiet one, with my nephew Jamie coming to stay - so I think it will be playing on the Wii for at least some of the time...... I'm loving Just Dance!!!!

Oh wow thank you so much :D What a great start to a new year!

I'm the same with projects I used to love doing those at school and can't understand my girls reluctance.

We also got a wii and OH got me a sewing machine - we'll be able to compare scars :P

Happy New Year Vicki! Love the new look!
