WOYWW - July 20th

Hello everyone! Yay for the last week of term - but today has been manic, it wasn't until I got to 4pm I realised I hadn't had a cup of tea all day (and any cups before 6am don't count - I get up at about 5.30am thanks to my fur babies!!). Although my day has been manic - it has been wonderful too!! My working day started later because I attended Jack's Prize giving ceremony - such a proud Mummy moment when Jack went up to collect his awards in Design and Technology and Religious Education. Here is my gorgeous boy with his certificates - I can't believe he'll be 13 on Saturday!

I did however manage to finish a card today - all pink birthday card using a Sugar Nellie image and Heidi Grace papers.
a few Prima flowers

a Lili of the valley sentiment

and a pin to finish it off!

The other reason I had a wonderful day was I got to hold my new niece - she was born late Monday night and has been in special care because she had a slight infection - but she is all well now and gorgeous!! The Wilkins side of the family don't 'do' girls - My FIL is an only child - he went on to have 2 boys (my hubby and his brother Paul), Paul went on to have 2 boys (my nephews Daniel and Jason), and we have 2 boys (Jack and Sam). Paul finally after years of being single met Nadine (his sole mate!) - and they decided to have a baby - and here she is - a Wilkins girl!! It is so lovely to have some 'pink' injected into our lives - especially as I have 2 beautiful nieces from my sister - but she lives so far away and I don't get to see them much :-(

So here is me with my new niece!

Lauren Lucy

and as for the furbabies - they are running round like madcats tonight - playing with a box!!

Until next Wednesday - pop over to Julia's blog and have a look at WOYWW!

You must be so proud of Jack. Love that card ...and all the embelishments.

Oh you've had a great week! Your son looks as if he's trying really hard to be cool about his achievements! Understandable Mommy pride, of course - used to make me blub!
