My life - today.

Oh, hello. I'm depression. You were probably expecting me. (Sandra Ranja illustration.)
Hi there lovelies,

Do you like my visitor?  I certainly don't, he's the reason the I've been absent lately.  I don't normally write about my feelings here, but thought I should explain myself.  I have been feeling blah for the longest time & only since the sun has come out have I started to feel like doing anything, anything at all. I haven't touched my craft stuff for the longest time.  I managed to make an apron the other day, but forgot to take a picture.  I made it for my dd's primary school tuck shop.  I'll try to get a photo of it next time I do tuck shop.

I have even stopped taking a photo a day for my grateful/365 project (something just for me).  Although I did take a picture of the blue sky (with a few clouds) the other day, as it's been so very long since we've seen the sunshine.

I thought I would share with you a few photos from the last week or so.  Emsy finally had her hat parade, & of course there where loads of great hats, easter eggs & the parents each brought a plate for the lunch.  Then we all went home early as it was the last day of school for term one.  Boy hasn't the time just flown by.  It seems like the other day since Emsy had her first day at school.
Here is Emsy (& Lils) sitting in line waiting to "parade" their hats.

Just thought I show a close up of my Emsy. 

This is Lils' after eating spaghetti meatballs.  She has to feed herself nowadays.

I have also taken Lils to her first "rock concert" Elmo's World Tour.  She's still a bit little to really appreciate it, but had a great time any way.  Occasionally she would join in, but the fold up chair, the other kid's food (they had chips) & falling off seats where far more exciting.  But still I am glad that I took her.  It was a good Lils' & Mummy time.

Well I had better go.  As my new laptop is having issues with it's hard drive & I have to go see if I can get it repaired under warranty (the company we brought it from has since gone into liquidation).

Also before I forget I am hosting a challenge on the Die Cut Diva's flickr site here.

Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting everyone.  Hugs to you all xoxoxoxo

It is so difficult to remain upbeat when the weather is crummy......on the bright side, your children are just adorable! Thank you for posting pics of them! Like Dawn, I too am sending happy thoughts your way ;-)
