Well it has been a tough old week or two and it has taken me this long to be able to put (cyber) pen to paper. The results of my Mum's biopsy weren't good and she was told that the cyst that was removed during her surgery was malignant. However her consultant is 90% certain that all the cancerous tissue was removed during surgery. To be safe though he is recommending that she has chemo as well...poor mum.

As a result we decided to cancel our trip to Disneyland Paris this weekend. Much as we love Disney neither Robert nor myself felt up to 2 days trekking round the parks. I think we have both averaged about 3-4 hours sleep a night for the last week or so, so we are both shattered...physically & emotionally! Luckily it was a surprise trip for the kids so they have not been disappointed. We will just have to wait and go again next year.

Anyhow on to happier news - I received my first design team kit from Angel Crafts and amazingly I have already managed to complete one LO and what's more I have an idea for my second project too :)

Scrapaganza website went live today and I managed to restict myself to "ONLY" 11 classes! Yikes!
They all just looked so good. Here are my choices so far (but almost certain to change as more classes come out):

1 June' 07 7:00 PM, #( 1 ) Sing a Song named Life (1)
2 June' 07 9:30 AM, #( 2 ) Sing a Song named Life (2)
2 June' 07 11:00 AM, #( 3 ) Sing a Song named Life (3)
2 June' 07 2:30 PM, #( 17 ) Weather comes to mind (1)
2 June' 07 4:00 PM, #( 18 ) Weather comes to mind (2)
2 June' 07 7:00 PM, #( 29 ) Chinoca Moments
2 June' 07 8:30 PM, #( 10 ) Material Girl
3 June' 07 9:30 AM, #( 16 ) X-Static Process
3 June' 07 11:00 AM, #( 4 ) Sing a Song named Life (4)
3 June' 07 2:00 PM, #( 9 ) Coffee,Sugar & Cream (1)
3 June' 07 3:30 PM, #( 37 ) Coffee,Sugar & Cream (2)

Eeeeeeeeee! How can I wait until June. I want to go right now!!! :)

I also saw a really good idea on a thread started by Pam over on UK scrappers. The idea is to make a mini book/or bigger album with your top 10 list under each of these headings

  • My roles
  • Things you didn’t know about me
  • Words that describe me
  • My weaknesses
  • My strengths
  • Pet peeves that make me scowl
  • The simple pleasures in life
  • Smells and sounds that I love
  • To relax I …
  • Quick words of wisdom
  • Goals & aspirations
  • Favorite flicks
  • The soundtrack to my life
  • Bookworm bits
  • The best shows & concerts
  • Playing on my ‘puter (ie top 10 software programmes I use)
  • Websites of the moment
  • Favourite places I’ve been
  • Places I dream of going
  • I like to wear …
  • Around the house I treasure …
  • Favourite nibbles and tipples
  • My dream home would have
  • The legacy I’d like to leave
Mind you I might have to swap some of the topic around...after all I don't see a topic on Top Ten Buffy episodes or Top Ten David Boreanaz TV moments LOL
