...minutes, past the nineteenth hour on the nineteenth day of March 2001 my lil baby girly stole my heart with her beautiful blue eyes, tiny little toes, perfect little fingers and bloody screams...she was born screaming and I don`t think she has shut up since!!!
Mia`s eighth birthday today, eight bloody hell, although she still only wears age four to five clothes!!!
Poor little thing had to spend the whole day at school while her Sing Star High School Musical sat unopened on the table...Oh dear god I am regretting buying that now, I hate HSM with a passion, and to have her and Ella murdering the songs while I was hiding in the kitchen was almost too much for my poor little ears until I stuck my ipod on...does that make me a bad mother I questioned...no because she didn't notice muwahahah!!! They did however discover...while I wasn't looking, that the mic for Rockband can be used too so they can duet...!!!
Had one of those totally "wipe out" days...everyone seemed to be having a crisis and wanted to talk to me and everything seemed to go wrong, I literally spent half the afternoon after my classes on the phone chasing up paperwork and trying to sort out several problems that students had...the unpaid hours!!!
Thank God it is the weekend tomorrow, and I am off out on Saturday night to watch friends in a band perform their second gig...watched their first a couple of weeks ago and they were awesome so can`t wait to see them again.
Off to assemble my groupie outfit for the weekend!!!

...Why is it, as a mum, the minute you sink your aching bones into a bubble bath, chilled glass of wine in hand and ipod playing blissful tunes...you get bang bang bang on the door...bloody kids guaranteed if I try to relax in the tub before they are in bed they want to use the toilet or "chat"...
They do not tell you this stuff at parenting classes I can tell you...oh no...how to make up a bottle...which I think I have forgotten now and how to hold a baby...hmmm not sure what happened to me but I lost that gooey feeling you are supposed to get when you see a baby, I can appreciate that they may be cute and tiny and they have toes that used to delight me...All I think now is they grow up and make a mess and laze around like slobs, trying to get Harry to actually help around the house is as painful as a tooth extraction!!! Was screeching at him earlier poor little thing only asked me when I was making tea and I went into one about how I had been at work all day come home and blah blah blah is all he heard because he actually turned up the television while I was ranting!!! Bloody kids
So... sorry whitter over...made this little canvas that I am going to hang on the bathroom door every time I want "me" time...and god help anyone who knocks on that door!!!
Have just joined Twitter too...see top left, add me if you feel you want to...I am loving this modern technology stuff...good init!!!

He may be arrogant and completely passionate about football...but oh my god he is scrumptious, and I think he is the sole reason that I became so interested in Football a couple of years ago...funny since he left Chelsea I have not really bothered much with the beautiful game!!!
But he is here...not twenty miles away staying in Manchester...so near yet so far...so for now I will have to make do with this little bit of eye candy...although I believe I may watch the football tomorrow night!!!
Ladies stop drooling!!!
Okay my heart rate has returned to normal I am taking deep breaths and I am calm ;-)
Got myself a solid four hours sleep last night, I have decided this insomnia thing has gone on long enough and I am just going to stop stressing about it, if I sleep I sleep, if not I am going to stick my ipod on and listen to my new White Noise App that came very highly recommended by a friend...Imagine laying in bed with your eyes closed listening to the sound of waves crashing on the beach or of a real wood fire crackling as you lay next too it...Mourinho is optional of course!!! So I lay in bed reading...yep not picked up a book for months either so it was good to loose myself in someone else's world...listening to the ocean through my headphones...sheer bliss and the best 59p I ever spent...well apart from the chunky Peanut Kit Kat I bought and ate earlier...apparently all this chocolate must be good for me because I finally did my body test on Wii fit tonight and I have lost 4lbs...I have eaten six bars of chocolate in three days and still managed to loose weight...god I am a bitch aren`t I ;-)

Sat here writing this whilst Ella is plaiting and un-plaiting my hair...apparently Mia says she will turn to stone if she looks at me because I remind her of Medusa...bloody ancient Greece school projects...at the moment I have 16 plaits in my hair!!! Kids!!!...hopefully the GHD`s will repair the damage in the morning!!!
I am ready for the weekend, no partying, no hangovers...hopefully...but plenty of washing and ironing no doubt...oh the joys of parenthood!!!
I got the dreaded letter this week...the one where Ella has been accepted into the high school of my choice, which is good news as it is literally at the end of our road but bad news because she is my little girl and I don`t want her to grow up as fast as she is...where on earth has the time gone, eleven years old already...jesus...does not seem five minutes since I held her in my arms. Now all I get is hormonal backchat and tantrums and Mum I need to borrow your straighteners and can I wear make up!!!
And...believe it or not I have been told things get worse as they get older!!!

........................all things that have put Sweden on the map, apart from it actually being on the map of course!!!
but my favourite thing from Sweden, well apart from Ikea, has to be Magnolia Stamps
These gorgeous little stamps featuring Edwin and Tilda are just the cutest and I lurve them, have been very busy water colouring and making cards tonight and this is what I have come up with.
I am doing a craft fair in a couple of weeks so trying to build up some stock to sell, these little cards will be lovingly wrapped in a cello bag ready to be re-homed...their new owner carefully picked by myself!!!
