postheadericon Posting at 3.20am! Grrrr!

Connor (bless him) decided at 12 that he didn't wanna sleep tonight so spence and i was up and down about 50 times trying everything we could to get the lil sausage to sleep. So i thought why not put him in bed with me, he might just settle then..........hell no!!! That made it worse.....he started jumping all over me and eventually i'd had enough and brought him down. He's just sat and ate two yogurts and had a bottle of milk and so here i am bleating on here cause i'm bored and dog tired wahhhh!!!!! WHYYYY CONNORRRR! pmsl.
This is part of being a mom that i still after nearly 6 years hate LOL its a nightmare when they just won't sleep. I only hope he dozes off soon and i get a couple of hours b4 i have to get Kaci up at 7 for school. Anyways i'm gonna getgone and come back at a more decent hour haha. SWEET DREAMS WORLDDDD!!!

postheadericon NEW CU Picket Fence Frame!

Helloooooo! I got busy this afternoon and tried to follow a tutorial on how to make a picket fence frame, only i'm not to great at following tuts to be honest so i kinda ditched that and went my own way! Though its no-where near as good as the tutorial one was i really am proud of this, it has three small frames you can use for anything you like. I hope you like it. Please follow my TOU using this and definately don't share the links please just tell people to come here and pick one up for themselves LOL!!! Have funnnnn!!!!! Hugs Laura xoxox

Hey, thanks to everyone for all the lovely well wishes yesterday, it wasn't too bad having an MRI Scan done but i wouldn't really want another, the noise was horrendous! I read up about them and everywhere said it'd be noisy but i had ear phones on with load music and i didn't hear a word cause the machine was banging away pmsl. I was in the tunnel of noise for about 45 minutes which wasn't too bad, i had 4 scans in total and i should find out in two weeks whats going on. So i'll keep you informed.
Other poor little connor had a nasty asthma attack yesterday evening, the doctor has given him anti-biotics and steriods but he is fine in himself now just coughs now and again, But he has anti-biotic ass now grr the dreaded runssssss poor lad, well he doesn't mind so its not to bad. Hope you are all well, have a great day! A template for you coming up! Hugs Laura xoxox

postheadericon Today's News!!!

Awesome awards recieved and such lovely comments i'm feeling really loved on here haha! But my mind is feeling really mixed up at the moment and i'm having a hard time in my personal life...i haven't written about this before because i try not to think about it but tomorrow i'm off to have an MRI scan on a lump i have and its really getting me down..i've had this lump for nearly three years and this last year it has grown and it became apparent that it needed sorting. The pain has become really awful i'm on tablets that have stopped my other parts of my woman hood from happening and to be honest shake me and i'd rattle haha!! My consultant is worried that the lump is connected to my main nerve in my leg, apparently this can happen often that lumps can grow out of the skin of the nerve but this is my main nerve and its really now sinking in that i could be in for a rough ride....Now i know i need to think positive and cheer up i've slapped myself many a time for getting so worried when nothing is set in concrete yet but i've been having horrid dreams about losing the kids and its torn me down and i feel i can't speak to anyone cause they'll just think i'm silly. So my tempere has been showing and i hate that..will let you all know how i get on...
HOLIDAY WEEK TODAY!!! Least i can take my mind off my troubles when i have so much to get sorted. Kids are super excited and to tell the truth i'm the worst haha i can't wait!!!! Hope you are all well. Take care and have a great day!! Hugs Laura xoxox
