I'm so sorry I haven't blogged for a while, life just takes over and takes hold! I do pop in and visit all my lovely blog friends to see how you are doing as often has I can. My illness holds me back sometimes and I don't really have much to say and you certainly do not want to hear me moan, I'm sure! I've been so tied up with family just recently and the blessed garden has started to grow now that Spring is here, so I really haven't had time for extra stuff. Now that Lonnie's birthday is over and she is coming to the end of her last year at Uni, which is a real blessing, I should have more time for me.
I was tidying up some old files on another computer and came across this lovely movie I made for my sister's 40th birthday.
The music I chose for the video is by Corinne Bailey Rae and is called 'Butterfly'. I just love the words as they say exactly how I felt towards my little sister, who is 10 years younger than me, as we were growing up in our Mother's house.
Shower me with your love
In my mother's house
Shower me with your love

Music:- Simon Webbe No Worries
I was going through some old photographs and I came across a trio of snaps of my son Jamie. The size and quality were very poor, but I still wanted to do something with them. I fiddled around with them in Animation Workshop and then pulled the results into Movie Maker, chopped up a bit of music I liked in Gold Wave and added it to the movie and voilà, this is what I came up with it. I had great fun and I really like it because it is so different.

I love Shakespeare plays and sonnets and number 17 is one of my favourites. Here it is in all it's glory.

I am supposed to pass this on to 6 other scrappers, but Eila has nabbed a couple of the ladies I would have passed it on to and others I know seem to be up to their eyes in 'stuff' at the moment. So I'm going to be cheeky and just pass it on to anyone who reads this blog and would like to participate.
However, I will pass this on to June at Cen's Loft as I know she is extremely organised and I'm keen to see what she has to post. have fun June and everyone who wants to participate.
I'm off to eat my yummy fish and chip supper. Have a great weekend.

It would have been my Dad's 80th Birthday today, if he had lived to celebrate it. Sadly I lost him 21 years ago when he was just 57, the age my hubby Steve is now. I have so many questions I long to ask him, about his life and the stories he told me as a child, it is such a sadness to me that he's gone. If only he had kept a journal, and then I could read it and possibly have caught a glimpse of the man he was, young and old.

My Sisters, Lily & Let, each had their first child within 18 months of each other, pretty much the same age difference between my brother and I. Needless to say they are close and see each other regularly. This is my favourite photograph of them both and I think it looks great in Nicole's fab QP.

Go to http://draft.blogger.com/home and logon.
You will now be on your Dashboard page with a list of the blog or blogs you have created.
You will see here an option to make Blogger in Draft your default dashboard. Please bear in mind that if you tick this box when you post to your blog there is no longer a spellchecker. Perhaps Google presumes you have Google toolbar which incorporates a spellchecker, but I think it’s an oversight on their part.
Select the blog you want to edit and click settings.
You will see next to Blog Tools the option to either Import, Export or Delete Blog. click Export blog and save it to a safe place on your computer.
This will only export the contents of your blog, it won’t save your layout or widgets.
To save you layout click the Layout tab
Well I think the layout is back to it old look. Although to be honest I would have liked to have freshened it up a bit. I'm going to go through my layouts tomorrow and see what I posted. I won't remember the words I blogged, but that's the beauty of creating scrapbooks as the picture tell the story and more often than not, no words are needed.
Going to back up my blog after posting this email and then I'm going to take a couple of headache tablets 'cus my head is pounding like crazy.
I'm so sorry if my rubbish keeps popping up on your blogs whilst I try to put my blog back to how it was, but if you could just bear with me I would be everso grateful. I will be spending most of the rest of the day twiddling and fiddling with it. I have the photo's and layouts I've blogged backed up, but unfortunately not the credits, so I can't re post them until I've done a bit or research.
I will be writing a little 'tute', to tell you how to back up your blog in a little while... but honestly do you trust me after this?
I just wanted to send another hug to Vicki's Mom, LaVerne and to let her know I'm still holding her in my thoughts.
I am a idiot, I accidentally deleted my blog. Fortunately it was backed up but only until November last year. Silly me. So if it looks as if I've got a few things missing or have doubled up on things here and there it's because I have. Let this be a warning and back up your blog weekly.

... a Pain in The Rear!

There is only 18 months difference between my big brother and I. He was always very good to me as a child, even though It must have been a real pain to have his little sister tagging along on most occasions. I don't see so much of him these days as we live quite a way from each other. He is a fantastic brother, a brilliant dad and a wonderful grandad. Happy birthday 'Big Bro', I love and miss you so much.

Lonnie has been studying for her BA Hons degree in Business Studies & Marketing for over four years now. This last final push has taken its toll. But she will get through it, hook or by crook. I have never known a more determined person to get something done. She will do it, and hopefully look back on this period in her life and say, "yes, it was worth it."
