I had a lovely evening last night with great friends - although the evening went far too quickly! I managed a couple of layouts, so not a bad evenings scrapping for me.

Thank you Carla for having us and to Debs and Sally too for a fabby evening.

Hoping to go to a new crop starting in a few weeks which is just round the corner from where I live :-)

A good day!

Today has been a good day starting off with the fantastic news Flynn will start nursery in January at the local school. This is going to be great for him but I'm realising he is growing up too quickly!

John then went off to the Sailing Club to look at a boat he was thinking of buying - he didn't in the end, it was a great price but needed a lot of work. He doesn't need it till spring and we have a slightly bigger budget so we are still on the look out.

Whilst John was there me and the boys went for breakfast at our local Wetherspoons.

It was then shopping time. Hobbycraft for some card and ribbon for Christmas gifts and a few other things fell into the basket! Then for this weeks food shop. We then nipped to my Grandma and Grandad's but they weren't in.

The rest of the day has been spent chilling and getting ready for tonight. A lovely evening with Carla, Sally and Debs.

Today I have taken Flynn for his orthoptics appointment at the local hospital. He has been been having regular check ups because of family history of squints etc.

Flynn did great today and named all the different sized pictures shown to him. He then had to have drops in to dilate his pupils - this test showed he is long sighted but not unusual for his age. The person doing this test was clearly not familiar with what a 3 year old would/wouldn't understand!

He has finally been discharged after over 2 years and we can now just have regular checks at the local opticians.

In a few weeks I will be back here with Ethan at the Ear, Nose and Throat department!

Where do I start?

Do I recap the last 18 months or so I haven't blogged or just start again from now - decisions!

Here's a photo for now of Ethan in his sailing boat - there will be many many posts to come on sailing!!!

I'm back!!

I've been wanting to start blogging again for a while but never seem to find the time. Now I've got Blogpress on my iPhone I'm hoping that's going to change - let's see!

I'll leave you with a photo of my gorgeous boys from a weekend walk at Elvaston Castle to get a photo for our Christmas cards this year.

PS - thanks Sally for recommending this app xxx
