sneaking in 5 minutes

of computer time while the boys are otherwise occupied. We are down to a one computer family at the moment and even though it's mine there is no guess as to who never gets near it any more, other than a hard fought few minutes here and there.

Any way I've popped on today to share my Mum's birthday gifts and card. What do you buy the woman who has everything???absolutely nothing, that's what. After 79 (in a couple of weeks) of life on this planet there is not a lot that Mum needs, she has a house full of treasures, gifts from a large continuous family, so I thought this year I would give her a couple of hand made gifts, her favourite kind. The scarf was made using a pattern found here on etsy. I thought she would enjoy the simple card set which I left blank inside as she is still a letter writer. the PP are from K and co, stamped with a little daisy stamp from crafty kids(now kassaz) and coloured with copic markers, all stored in a recycled PTI stamps box(they are the perfect size for a few 5 1/2 inch cards and envelopes). For the card I used PP from Websters page, stamps from stampin up(the rose) PTI (for you) Now to think of a birthdya present :-)

Well seems like my 5 minutes is up and I guess with an early start tomorrow for football I had better chase those boys still up and get to bed myself.

To all those Mum's (or Mum like people) out there, I hope your day on Sunday is filled with lots of love and hugs.

My Mum, mother to 6, Grandmother to 14, great Grandmother to 8 with number 9 due at any time, and stand in Mum for so many more I could never count them but if any one needed a feed, a bed for the night, a sewing, knitting or baking lesson, an ear to listen or even just a quick hug, she's your gal.
