Drowning in paper

I'm part way through updating all of my childminding policies and procedures, and also risk assessments, and feel utterly fed-up with the whole lot! My aim is to review and improve them all before the summer hols start in 3 weeks pressure is on to get a move on!
Wish me luck!

On a lighter note, we had a teddy bears picnic yesterday in the local park, complete with cream it's not all bad!

All in a day's work

I took the children I childmind strawberry picking today and they loved it...picked loads, ate loads and even had a few to take home to mummy! Got home for a super quick lunch and then, off to school to cheer Beth on at sports day. I think I've overdosed on fresh air today, I can't stop yawning!

Final LO for my Florida album...woohoo! I can get started on last years photo's now, only a year behind ....sigh!


Yep, I've finally done the last LO for my long awaited Florida 2006 album...yipee!
Will try to post a piccie later.

Just had a rubbish week, I feel I'm drowning in a sea of paperwork related to my childminding much to do! I spent virtually all day yesterday trying to complete my self evaluation document's not completely finished but will be by next weekend. My aim is to get completely up to date with it all in the next fortnight so that when we break up for the summer hols, that's it for six weeks, I will be able to relax and not even have to think about any of it!

I'm so long forward to having six full weeks off with my family...It's never happened before, I just usually have a couple of weeks here and there. We're hopefully gonna visit family and friends and also go camping...pray for sunshine!! Of course I'm gonna be spending a fair bit of time in my craft room too...can't wait!

The boys are away at the British F1 GP this weekend, so it's just me and Beth! We had Chinese food and strawberries dipped in chocolate last night whilst watching Mamma Mia...Beth loves it!
I told her that when I was a kid I used to sing all the Abba songs with my friends in our bedrooms with our hairbrushes for microphones..she'll no doubt be doing that with her friends later this week.

Anyhow, gotta dash, going swimming this morning and then got ma & pa coming for Sunday roast to spend some time together for Father's day.

Have a great day whatever your doing...see ya!

And another (3)!

I'm on a roll now! I've managed to complete three more Florida layouts..another few steps nearer completing this album.

I spent quite a lot of yesterday on the tombola stand at the local children's centre fun day and managed to get the back of my neck a bit sun burnt (ouch)! We took £44 on the tombola, so not bad! All proceeds going to the Down's Syndrome Association.

Today the boys are at a footy tournament, so me 'n' Beth had a leisurely stroll around Tesco picking up some nice t-shirts and shorts for her school residential in a couple of weeks...she's getting quite excited (I'm not...I'll miss her like crazy!)

So tired

I've had a very tiring and quite frustrating working week, but happily still managed to complete a couple more layout's to add the the Florida too many more to do now!
