Catching Up

Wow, it's been a while :)

Firstly - this morning I was reflecting on how grateful I am for my own health and for the health of my children and hubby.  I have a few friends and family members who are currently struggling with physical and emotional health and it made me realise how blessed I am.  I need to recognise this and not take it for granted.  Yes, I can be deep and meaningful sometimes!! lol.

Secondly - is half-term break over yet?? The kids have been either getting on wonderfully or totally at each others throats! No half measures, lol.  Actually I can't really complain.

Thirdly - yesterday I went to my MIL's and had a day of crafting with my MIL and my SIL. We got lots accomplished and must say that the things we made are so darn cute :)  I took pictures so will upload them on here soon.  We are making things for our Christmas Shopping Party we are having in November.  I'd buy the items we made, so I hope others will too :)

Fourthly - I went to Asda today for a few bits and bobs and got some amazing bargains (yes, I can hear you groaning!). I got a ton of stuff of the shelves that house the items that have bashed boxes or dented tins.  The food is still good inside, just the box doesn't look too pretty.  So I got massive boxes of laundry detergent for £1.00 each, huge tins of tuna for 20p, etc, etc.  All in all I got £37.64 worth of items for £5.90 (yes, I'm a nerd and work these things out!! lol) just because of bashed boxes!  I took a picture (because once again I'm a nerd!) and will upload it soon.

Fifthly - we are having a 'trunk or treat' night halloween activity for the kids at church tomorrow.  We are so excited!!  I think the leaders are more excited than the kids!!  I'm just thinking that we need to spend most of the time inside rather than out since it's turned so freaking cold, bbrrrrrrr..................

That's all folks :)
