I am still here...i promise!!

Hello me lovelies

How are we all??
Before i get on i would like to say 'Hello & Thank you' to my new follower *waving*

Apologies for being missing again but its been a mad rush all week as my 2nd Son called Connor who is due to go to Secondary school in September...had his year 6 production and his leaver service....what is scary...is today Connor has started his 4 day visit to his secondary school.

O..M..G..my little boys are growing up!! Really scary!! :o(

His year 6 production was amazing..Victorian Tea Party which was also part of their Enterprise they were doing, for £2.50 we had food & lots of funny entertainment and met Queen Victoria herself...mmmm!!
Connor played Burlington Burtie which he looked fantastic in his outfit :D
Leavers service without a doubt was a tear jerking & moving service as always...i did promise i wouldn't cry but i couldn't help it...I'd only been there 5 ruddy minutes..then out comes the tissues.
Then near the end Connor read a prayer out..he read it so beautifully and with soooo much confidence...certainly was a very proud moment..that's when the tears got worse!! 
Then on Friday night Connor & 7 other friends went in a limo to celebrate them leaving primary school....wow it was fantastic and they even had kids champagne for them to drink...non-alcoholic of course!!
Then all year 6 had a leavers sleepover at school which they had lots of fun playing games, watching dvds, pizza & lots more...they were truly spoilt but do you know what they well and truly deserved it as they all worked hard all year & what amazing group of friends they all are :D

Right i best stop now as i can feel my eyes welling up again...here we go so out come the tissues!!
I wont be a minute *wiping the tears away*

Right i best get on before the tears start again...tonight's card is a card i made for my hubby's Mum, another of those Simple & Clean cards but with a hint of colour..here's the card

You cry when you have them; you cry when they start school; you cry when they leave school; they make you cry when they stay out late etc; gawd who would have kids eh? We all would! Nothing wrong with tears of happiness I say! Lovely card Gemma! You stopped crying now?......
