Little Claire's Challenge #29...Flowers and sketch

*Warning ~ Long post so grab a comfy chair, a cuppa and a few cookies*

Hello me lovelies

Sorry i haven't been around...i know i keep apologising but i think i need to explain why, over the last few months its been quite hectic here in my house due to having some work done in it which meant we had to pack things away until all the work was complete and it meant i was limited to what i could use craft wise, then Christmas came and now i'm having my kitchen done but in the mean time of all this going on i lost net connection which up to now all seems fine *phew*
Anyhoo while my kitchen is getting done i am not allowed home during the day because my youngest scallywag is not allowed to be there so i am at mums during the day and only home at night but after cleaning and getting prepared for the next day i am too tired to do anything else like crafting etc.
Tell you something i am so glad my 3 older boys are at school while all this is going on during the day because i think it would finish me off if they we're on their school holidays!!

The other night i managed to grab 5 minutes before the tiredness crept in so i thought i best get this post done but again blogger is misbehaving and not allowing me to post pictures :(
I feel like giving up all this because i am sick of my net been pants, blogger playing up and to top it it off Mr Mojo has decided to be a bit of a naughty boy and keeps playing hide and seek from me so i feel like walking away from it all...i don't know maybe i am just tired and run down because i don't feel for the last few months has been so hectic and i haven't really had much me time to sit and craft properly...we'll see how i feel when things have finally settled down here!!

Look im ranting on...sorry me lovelies, i really didn't mean to come on here and start ranting at you all, i just thought i owed you all an explanation of why i haven't been posting as much and for not visiting you all for the last few months, hopefully you will all forgive me because it isn't the case of not wanting to post or comment, its just i have so mush going on!!
 Again i'm really sorry, now rant over...promise :)

It is a gorgeous card, Gemma. Sounds like you are going through the mill a bit. Hang in there, hun and don't apologise for things that aren't your fault. I can really sympathise with the kitchen and the Net issues. I had to swap my net provider about a year ago and thank goodness the improvement was immense! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog too.
