After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......
OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Happy Easter And A Huge Thank You To A Special New Friend
OMG I have a real life Michaels bag of my very own!
In my two years or so blogging I have made some truly lovely friends, and recently I have got to know Dianne who lives in Florida through the comments she leaves on my other blog “Mums Monkey” – one day I just had a spooky feeling that I should send her a monkey of her own (Christopher)….. that spooky feeling was “right” …. and since then we have e-mailed on a regular basis …. but this Easter she has totally overwhelmed me with her kindness.
As we have been getting to know each other I have told Dianne how I dream of one day going to the USA, taking with me the most mahooosive empty suitcase I can get through, so I can shop till I drop, and then some in Michaels ……. !!!
And this week Dianne has overwhelmed me again with the most wonderful parcel of embellishments from Michaels, I was so overcome, that when I opened up her box I just looked at them, in silence, stroking each and every packet in turn.
What do you say to such kindness and thought?
I can’t believe the Urban Chic and Bead Landing charms and will be wearing them very very soon. And as for the glittered blossom branches, I don’t think I will ever be able to use them, they are so lovely, BUT I know I MUST!
These Martha Stewart labels and tags are something different for me …. I have a few ideas already as to what to do with them and see a slight change in style ahead.
And as for these monkeys …… what can I say, gorgeous!!
But best of all I LOVE my bag, I will use it carefully and then after a while put it away ready for the day when I actually walk into a Michaels, bag akimbo telling anyone who will listen how I got it. Thank you Dianne you are a VERY SPECIAL lady and it’s people like you and Marc, Jan The Fan, Di and Mr D who keep my brain whirring, thinking up more mischief and mayhem for “The Boys” to incur - xxx THANK YOU xxx
Oh .... and I almost forgot …….
I used some of the papers, ribbons, stickers etc. from Dianne’s Easter parcel for “The Boys” to make this page in my Smashbook – unwrapping each and every small parcel this morning was such a magical experience for them (and me)!!!!!
