Hello ladies and Happy Monday ...

Although the weather is grim today nothing can spoil my mood I have had a lovely week and weekend annnnnnnnd super excited my family holiday is coming ever closer ... Just need to fill the fridge with food for my daughter and her other half who are house sitting ..... Perroni and a loaf of bread should suffice !

Alexia and I have been out a fair bit this week walking the fur monsters and Pokemon hunting ..... we even caught one we thought looked like chip ..

Benji our white and brown fur monster now looks somewhat ....bald and bless him he keeps shivering I have to wrap him in a blanket and give him a cuddle.... Bad grooming from pets at home left both the dogs coats in such a state that I had to have Benji stripped and Chip will get the same this Saturday then we can start over .... Benji looks smart but I think its a tad short ...
He looks so fed up ! bless him Im assured he will get used to it ....

In my new hobby/ obsession of stampin up I received fab recognition this week from our top line manager Sam 
One for coming 7th in the top ten sellers, and one for recruiting other members. Its always nice to get recognition when you work hard and Sam is fab at rewarding everyone to keep us motivated.... she is better known as Pootles in the Stampin up world and when Im a grown up demonstrator I want to be just like her ha ha ha ha ha ... I did create my very own customer thank you cards I can't remember if I showed them on my last blog but here they are again just because well ... they are cards ...and I made them ON MY VERY OWN .... 

So the rest of the week will likely be a mad dash to get away on time for the family holiday . No doubt hubby will work until probably half an hour before the taxi is due to pull up the drive and I shall fully intend to be ready at least two days before but in true Charlesworth style shall likely be pulling clothes out of the dryer as the taxi man is loading the cases. We really are a match made in heaven my husband and I as we are both very last minute with everything except work. Even when we got married my husband didn't take a suit ! instead he got the hotel concierge to organise it the morning of the wedding. However I can't really comment as I bought my famous bridal bouquet from a shop in the hotel lobby on the way to my limo which had been parked outside about and hour and a half ...as I was running a little late .... My birthday this year is also our anniversary and it really does not seem like 8 years since we said our bizzar vows in the equally bizzar setting of the Little White wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Well if its good enough for Elvis and Brittney its good enough for Scrimpy !! I am determined to return for our 10th anniversary . 

Well I shall soon be sailing the seven seas mi harteys via Venice, Greece and the Amalfi coast and Turkey. I am honestly just looking forward to a good feed, a good sleep and some sun on my face, a little luxury and no housework ...... 

Well until the next instalment of no she hasn't done any crafting again this week ...is she even a crafter at all , I bid you farewell ... be good xx A
