My dad took a heart attack in August and my mum isn't doing too well either after her surgery. But i have been busy i have made some new stuff to use some Candy Papers along with some Candy Canes, Lollipops and Bows. Will be posting them soon and look forward to seeing your comments

Hi everyone here's an update on things going on.
Mum made it through the surgery and they managed to get all the cancer around the lung after taking out a third of her lung but at least this way she won't need chemo as she didn't want to go down that road again. She was in hospital for three weeks due to complications but is now on the mend at home and slowly starting to get things together.
We are still none the wiser on what is happening with Kirsten all we have been told is that bloods need to be taken again, so have made an appointment for Wednesday 29th June to speak to the doctor and find out exactly what is going on. Fingers crossed we can get things sorted and be somewhat wiser lol.
And finally the biggy, I am engaged to the most wonderful man on the planet. We have known each other for 26 years but lost touch due to me moving around all the time with the RAF, and finally found each other on Friends reunited and since then we have been talking and getting to know each other again (i had a huge crush on him in school and vice versa only we didn't know as the two friends we passed messages on didn't bother hehe) Anyway Alex came up for four days after proposing to me over Real Radio and me accepting and we went shopping for an engagement ring. Its a pink Sapphire with three diamonds on each shoulder and the best ring on the planet. I really can't believe my luck is finally looking good and i keep expecting something to go horribly wrong which is the norm for my life but maybe God is shining down on me again and something is going to go right for a change. Alex was up for four days and those days flew by so quick that before we knew it he was away again and i hate it and keep looking for his arm wrapped round me in bed when am sleeping!!
Anyway enough of my gossip i will be in this week with some new Templates, Masks and have made a scrapkit for a challenge in Xeracx Stalkers blogspot so am gonna try making another one and see what i can come up with
Take care all and stay safe

Got a new Laptop

Hey all, am not around much at the moment with everything thats going on, my Mum had her operation and was getting sorted taking steps forward one day at a time then the poop hit the fan and she took ten steps back taking reactions to Morphine then not being able to keep her food down since she had her operation aswell, but fingers crossed things are starting to look up. My sister and I are heading back up to Abderdeen next Thursday for a long weekend, tickets are booked for the bus, my new laptop will be fully charged so that i can use it on the three hour journey and we arrive in Aberdeen at midnight. Speaking of my new Laptop, i have the bestest eldest daughter in the world, she went out and bought me the new Dell Inspiron M105R, its like a teal Blue colour which is the colour of my bedroom and i love it. Its a 4gb memory and 520gb hard drive with Window's 7. I certainly need all that space and am loving Window's 7 now that i have my psp9 downloaded and all my plugins are working so i will get to creating more stuff for you all soon i promise.
Ok suppose i have rattled on long enough take care all that come in stay safe and keep smiling
