Morning Peeps!!
I hope you are all having a totally wonderful saturday! I am!! I woke up this morning and scott and I had breakfast together....alone......!! Mo was fast asleep snoring so we got up and had 35 precious minutes together before little guy footsteps plodded down the stairs announcing  in a little voice 
" morning parents! I am awakened!!"

He is so funny!! I am not quite sure where he gets his words from but they make us smile so much!!

Anywhoo, I turned on my facebook and there in my news feed was a gorgeous 24 hour ' Thanks' freebie from Mo Manning, awwwwww! this baby is just so gorgeous and was totally perfect for a special thank you card I needed to make. (...Quick go get it before it runs out then come back to read more Lou wafflies!!!)
I am popping him over in the papertake weekly anything goes challenge.

I needed a special card because after 6 years of nursery nursing I finished my job yesterday. I have been so totally lucky to work in such a wonderful place but with Mum being poorly my ability to commit to paperwork (...which might I add I am totally pants at!!) was just not up to what I felt was needed and I decided to give my mummy priority for a while since she has given me 35 wonderful years of love.I want to give her some back and help her to adjust to the things she just cannot manage to do anymore. It is so very hard to see your mum like this and although I am very sad to leave my nursery nursing I feel totally at peace with my choice. I am so thankful to the girls too because they know I don't do fuss and being the centre of attention so Gabby gave me my gifts on our nice quiet lunchtime break.

The girls at work got me the most awesome present. (My fave is the stunning box which I am going to keep in my craft room and fill with yummy bits and bobs).....
I adore my stunning Humphrey's corner card book made by my friend Hayley,its just gorgeous and full of lovely messages. I didn't quite make it home from work last night before blubbering away like a noodle in the car!!! I will miss my gorgeous little peeps so much.

Right, enough waffling! I am off to make myself a cuppa and have it in quiet as Mo has gone to Grandad's with Daddy to fix the car. So its a cuppa and some of these yummy presents from my little peeps ti nibble on while they are out....
Huge hugs Lou xxxxx


  1. What beautiful presents you received Lou. I particularly like the chance of a full time lend of it I suppose?!! I know what a difficult decision it has been for you leaving your job, but you will do so much good helping your Mum. Oh by the way..your card is amazing as well. But that always goes without saying, I never expect any less than perfection from you.
