Morning Peeps!!

Its time for a new challenge this week over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog and this week is a super fun one chosen by Julie. It is ...
Give Me a 'P'
(...now if you have 8 year old little boys sat next to you watching you type while they are snuggled up to watch 'The Brave Little Toaster' this challenge title will reduce them into fits of giggles and make them say things like "you need a pee?!!!......sigh.....)

And we are sponsored by the gorgeous Tracy over at Dies to Die For this week!!

I decided to go all boy for my make so you got a super sweet LOTV pirate with his puppy, punches and patterned paper!!! ahhhhhh thank you LOTV for making it soooo easy to get a boy 'p' card (....sigh, more giggles from the 8 year old...." you pee'd on a card mummy?!!!"...)

We are giving Mo this card next monday morning when he starts his new school. The die cut from the paper pad inside say 'good times' on it and I thought that was perfect for him (...you know...jumping off the plank into a new school and all that...romfl!!!) and a little skull and crossbones charm is enough to send any little guy into a happy frenzy!! but seriously having a little bit of something to help settle your nerves on your first day is so important. My awesome night manager Pete at work swapped my shift for me on sunday night so I can be there for Mo when he wakes up in the morning too. I was going to book t as holiday but then he offered me a 4pm-1am shift so I could save my holiday and still be home for a sleep before Mo wakes up. I cannot tell you how awesome it is to have a manager like that.

Right, must get my butt into gear. I have a dog walk to do, blood tests by vampires...I mean the nurse....and fun to be had with my small giggley pants boy!!! today we are making 'Banapple muffins' from my 20 minute meals Weight Watchers book. Its fabulous!! yesterday we had toast with peanut butter and cream cheese spread, with banana on top and sprinkles of chocolate!! YUM!!!!

have an awesome day peeps, Thank you for popping in on me!
huge hugs Lou xxxx
