|Your Brain's Pattern|
1.I am happily married (for 16years this year) and have 3 children (2 boys [25 + 16] Daughter 
I am not saying that everything is always hunky dory but I love my family warts and all, I always wanted a Walton family but have my own brand of family xxxx
2. I am happiest when I am tucked away in my craft room doodling about - actually that is a lie, read 3. to see why. or in there reading a good book.
3. I AM HAPPIEST when I am buying craft stuff, browsing internet or going into shops to add to my collection.!
4. I ADORE Betty Boop, always have done, don't ask why cos I don't know - just do.
5. I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is the bestest dog in the world called Stamford, he has his own passport so he come to the villa in Spain with usand I mustn't forget my parrot Enzo who chats away and drives me to distraction when she squawks ( I love to hear her talk though) and my cat Misty.
6. I love where I live, I have the best neighbours in the world. They are always there for me. Specially Gordon, Gabby, Sam and Lorraine
they will kill me for putting this picture on (sorry Sam and Lorraine) but you do deserve a mention and I dont have photos of the others xxxx
7. I love being in Spain, when I get there I feel like I am spiritually at home - it is my fave place to be; can't wait for the day I live there This is my favourite place at the villa, on the terrace looking at sea and mountains - Heaven is a place on earth
That is it, now I am going to tag 2 people = here goes
so girls this is just for fun, hope you pass it on
Then this picture was taken the morning after the nest had been sprayed - as you can see it was a beauty! amazing to look at.
After the nest was sprayed I had to get a fishing net and see if any had fallen into my water tank - I DID NOT want to share my bath with these "things" even if they were dead. The picture on the left shows the ones that were fished out - who knows where the rest went because I imagine that there should be a lot more than that due to the size of the nest; maybe today I will venture into the main body of the loft to see if they are dead all over the floor.
That's it for this post, may you all have a wasp free summer....
Her life is all good, great job, lovely relationship with husband and girls so I am really chuffed for her - she is the type of person who makes friends whereever she goes cos she is so unassuming and friendly - welcome back to my world Bev. Stories that we could tell, that would be a whole new blog!!!
The wasp situation has been resolved - the exterminator came this evening, to my surprise there were 2 nests in 2 different places, so it was a case of spraying and keeping all doors and windows closed. Seems that I will have to wait a few days before venturing into the loft.
NO post again today, but I consoled myself by gardening. There was an abundance of weeds out the front, I think I filled 5 green bags full of weeds; amazing how they grow when all else has ceased growing. C'est la vie I suppose.
China had her first day at her work experience placement. She was well excited but said her feet were totally killing her :-) It was a long day for her 9 - 5.30 instead of the usual school hours. Had to tell her that is why they call it work experience.
Stamford went to the vet this evening to have his rabies jab, so now he is ready for his holiday, not long now Yippee.
That's it for this post
Tomorrow I have a man coming to rid me of the little visitors, I shall have to move Enzo my parrot outside to ensure that she is safe whilst the extermination is carried out.
I will let you know how I get on - fingers crossed that I don't get stung!!
If I get the opportunity I shall photograph it to share with you
The reason for the lack of entries into my blog is that I have been waiting for parcels. When I am waiting for parcels I cannot settle into anything until the postman has been; then when he arrives with mundane mail for me I can't settle again hoping that the said parcel will arrive the next day - so basically I am in limbo.
I am waiting for a parcel from paper whimsy (www.paperwhimsy.com) as I have joined the yahoo group for the site and want to create some wonderful work just as the artists who subscribe to the group have done! I hope that I can make as good a use of the images as the girls have done. Another parcel I am waiting for is from www.naveljellystudio.com .
My only hope is that they arrive soon as I am off to Spain for 6 weeks on the 22nd July.
Apart from that what else have I been up to?
Shopping at Bluewater - getting stuff for holidays. Reading a good book called The Island by Victoria Hislop; about Crete and the leper colony that used to be on a little Island called Spinalonga - great read, not my usual serial killer/thriller type read.
Dipped in and out of the tennis this week, as and when weather permitted, England has been a washout - so much for Summer.
Two new births to record one in the family to Jenny and Lawson and the other to my neighbours son and his wife; both girls first still to be named, second called Lucinda May which I think is really pretty.
The wedding book is still in progress, but as I said earlier my head has not been on that particular project so I have left it alone.
