Well I'm well a chuffed Mum, Nicki's in Uni. Results were ok, 2D's in Drama and English, and a B in Dance. So we were unsure, but then a letter arrived from Uni, saying your in. I scream and cried. Nicki's crying and on cloud 109 lol. hugs for everyone Vicki oxo's
Well today is a funny old day, I'm feeling terrible, it's results day for A-levels. My Nicki is getting ready for collage as I type. I really don't mind if she doesn't pass. But Nicki is hoping to go to Uni. She's had the interviews and done the audition etc etc, and has been accepted on that, but of course will need the point to get in. So it's fingers crossed and keep your mouth shut Mum. I made the mistake of saying it didn't matter if she didn't get what she wanted she could resit and apply next year. OOOOO I thought or was trying to say I was proud without the results. She's worked hard and that's all I've ever asked. And seeing that neither me or her Dad did A-levels we're chuffed already. But it means the world to her, so I have the biggest worry belly on. I'll hopefully put another post on later saying what's happened. We might have to wait a few days to hear from her Uni, if it's down to a few little points.

Well all my plans in the summer holiday for crafting everyday! What happened? Well it's the girls, yes they sleep till late, but while they sleep I'm tidying and sorting out tea, washing etc etc. Then it's Mandy can you play games with me. So of course I'm playing all sorts, we've even been out and brought battleships and downfall to play. I'm loving spending time with my girls and all the other kids that end up at my place. But one of them seems to have put my crafting head somewhere. Cos I really can't get into crafting at all. The only thing I've been doing is these invites for my best mates birthday in November. And if I'm honest I wasn't really into them. I think that's because I printed off 100 wordings and cut to size then penciled line in both corners for the ribbon. Then put on double sided tape on about 97 before I noticed I'd not changed the phone number on the printing, that Kim had told me I'd done wrong!!!!!!!! lol. I can laugh now, but can you image lol. These invites were just want Kim wanted, I'd wanted to do something more, but she just wanted simple. So it's printed wording from the computer, with added old photo of Kim. Then added the purple ribbon, then the silver ribbon on top. Then stuck onto silver mirror card, and finally adding Quickutz 4 0's. So 100 altogether and I must admit they did look ok. For the tables on the night of the party I'm going to do cards the same with loads of old photo's of Kim. And Kim's making the cake with old photo's too.
