( fab finds)

Ive been nosing around blogs all morning and have come across some fantastic sites! One is a site where you can design your own blogBook, Yes you can have your whole blog printed on to your own Book! The prices look reasonable and it has free downloadable software to help you design looks fab!

I think its a great idea seeing as so many people put such an effort in to there blogs and to have it printed would be really cool!

check it out here!

Also you must check out this sight which designs your own email invitations!They are really modern and the photgraphy is amazing. Really cool worth a look even if its just for some inspiration!

{ feeling rough }

Hi all Were not a well bunch this week kids are off school with colds and ive got pleurisy!

I ve had a cold, tonsilitus and you name it for about three weeks and now im in loads of pain on one side of my chest feels like theres a brick in it! i thought i had broke a rib!

Doctors says its pleurisy im taking antibioctics but no improvement so it looks like i may have to go back.

So owens playing Doctor who in his bed room but keeps complaining he wants to play on the computer, Harrys glued to the tele (note to self -turn it off!) Im blogging and i suppose i better have a go at the ironing pile but to be honest dont quite feel up to it maybe a coffee and a couple of biscuits would go down better.

WELL ON A BETTER NOTE THE FISH SO FAR HAVE SURVIVED! Yes baby mollies are two weeks old happy birthday!! think ther 5 or 6 but they wont stay still.

{ proud mum to 5 baby mollies!}

5 what? i hear you say! Yes my fish have given birth!

I bought two dalmation baloon mollys for my tropical tank on thursday and thought that one looked a bit large, well a couple of hours later she started giving birth a few were only eggs probably from the shock of the move but low and behold there were little mollies swimming!

I was a bit worried at first as to whether they would get eaten but they seem to be doing a good job of hiding in the plants and now even come out to eat , they are quite big about just over a cm in lenth and different colours, How cute?

Heres a pic of my tiny baby molly righthand side and my long fin pleco on his log, ( aka Billy).

Also a couple of my christmas los from scrapagogo, we are nearly up to date! Whoop ones lopsided!

Well were here! France that is and were having a grand time! We took a drive up to the d day landing beaches, it was a beautiful sunny day, We visited The American cemetery at omaha beach it was very poignant. There are 9,387 graves there of which 307 of them are unkowns .We later drove on to pointe du hoc where the The German had there batteries this was very heavily bombed during the war and remains much as it was left. There are huge craters from bombs and many shelters and gun points to explore. Here are some photos taken on the day.
