A message for Isabella!

Blimey, what's wrong with me, two posts in one day .... actually I'm finding it very easy uploading photos via Picasa, so here Isabella, here are photos of Kayleigh and Lewis for you to see.

They are both so very excited about returning to the UK, especially after I showed them the house we will be living in on Google Earth and just how close the park is.

I've even managed to persuade them that the school uniforms aren't that bad, but no matter how much I tell Lewis that it's going to be cold, he still asks if he will be wearing shorts to school - ah bless!

Also they are soooooooo excited to meet the "new" baby when they decide to make an appearance, and so am I and Geoff too, as we missed all the "baby" stuff with Isabella!

Some Thank You Cards!!!!

Here is the Thank you card I made for Lewis' teacher, Miss Jennis.

And this is the card I made for Kayleigh's teacher, Miss Cole.

Both Kayleigh and Lewis will miss all their friends they have made at Tanglin Trust School, and they have both learnt alot whilst there. I'm hoping that they both will have some life long friends out of this stay in Singapore ....... it's been fantastic!

OMG - this is Lewis with the biggest hot dog in the world ..... and guess what .... he ate the lot, a whole 1 foot hot dog and bun, gone, demolished!

This was at the 4th July event up at Sembawang .. the kids had a great time!

Sorry not been updating much lately so very busy on getting sorted for the big move. When that is going to be is anyone's guess.

Yesterday we took the kids to the shops and brought them a pair of jeans all ready for the UK, and also a new lunch bag each. They are excited about returning and going to a new school, which hopefully we will find out the results on the appeal by about 22nd July, so fingers crossed.

Right do I try to run down was has happened in the last 5 months, apart from me being here there and everywhere and just not having the time to update my blog ...

Briefly ... had to go back to the UK end of February as my beloved grandad passed away - bless his soul, came back mid March, 2 weeks later had to go to Hong Kong for an annual dinner with the Ex Servicemens Association, then came back and 2 weeks later had to go back to the UK for work! Since being back it's been pretty full on trying to organise the shipment of 11 filing cabinets to the UK and the day has finally come, they leave Tuesday 13 May - wahoo!

At the moment, it's all up in the air with dates etc for us leaving Singapore, but it's supposed to be sometime in August, we shall have to wait and see.

Everyone is well, Kayleigh has to have a baby tooth removed as the adult one has come up behind it and not pushed it out, so the tooth fairy better be extra special generous on Wednesday night! Both Kayleigh and Lewis had their first Inline Skating lesson on Sunday, Lewis was a bit overwhelmed by it all, but by the end he was standing alone, and managing to get up after falling (how the instructor had taught him) ... bring on the next lesson

I so want to update my blog and make it a bit more flashy, so bear with me as I attempt to do so.

Welcome 2008!

Well, a new year, lets hope it's a good one!! Lots of BIG changes for us to come over the next few months and we shall worry about them when they are upon us. Our time is now short here in Singapore, and I intend on enjoying the rest of my time here!

We do not have a clue where or when we will be leaving just that it'll be July/August time!!

So, what's been happening over the last few months .... far too much, functions, kids school shows, birthday parties, xmas, and a few other hiccups that we will not discuss!

Honest .... I am alive!

OK, I only seem to be posting every month .. how bad is that! Well, the pins are out and sat in the cupboard along with the photos and xrays, already to be scrapped! However, the physio I'm having 3 times a week for 45 mins a time is a KILLER, but we will get there in the end!

Not been upto any scrapping as yet, have started altering Monograms for the kids, once finished will upload too. Have many layouts planned in my mind, may start on some in the next few days but will just have to take my time over them so not to aggrovate my hand!

Geoff had a fab birthday party - Movie Theme, everyone came dressed up, Geoff was Woody, I was Snow White! We also had Fred and Wilma Flintsone, Cleopatra, Zorro, Pochantas, Sandy from Grease, Gladiator and various others. Will have to upload some photos, oh not forgetting Kayleigh and Lewis, Kayleigh decided she was a baddie and Lewis was bob the builder and then a mini woody!

We are all set for christmas, and I must apologise for the impersonal approach to xmas cards this year, unfortunately, I am unable to write!
