Feel a bit sad!

Have been off sick for the last two days of work with a sicky bug, isn't it great to work with children?

However my mum had sad news on Friday that her neighbour, a lady I have known since I was 15 had died from cancer. It was very sudden and quick as she had been diagnosed at the start of January with lung and liver cancer. She was very poorly and couldn't move around much as she would pass out. She was into her crafting and had hoped prior to all this to go to Sandown park craft show.
Mum and I have decided to make some cards for the Marie Curie trust and hope that the money raised will help. Please if you are thinking about making some cards for this charity, just go for it.
I know I will miss her especially all the times she has had to let me in to mum's when I forgot my key and I know mum will miss her chats, but I think this is a good kind of therapy. So I hope you will like my (and mum's if she is ok with sharing) efforts.

Welllllll I have finished the paediatrics course and have passed! Yipppeee! Debz will be pleased as I can now help her take away the year six's as the first aider. Have come down with a cold and unfortunately can't use my first aiding to make me better :( Never mind the beechams is helping and lots of rest so better go to bed soon.
Fairytale land is coming along slowly but piano practice is going great. I would post a piccie but the batteries in my camera keep dying and I think it's because they have given up on me so something to sort at the weekend.
Better also get back to my book that I might give to Andrew as a valentine pressie although should be making his brother and my brothers birthday but so distracted! Don't really know what card to make my brother can't remember if he knows who Ivor the engine is as I got a kit from QVC as well as the bagpuss one and the clangers too. He's 28 and I know he was into A team, ninja turtles and He-man but not sure what to do, any ideas anyone??????

Busy busy busy!!!!

Well I am back to work with a bump!
I have been making fairytale land within role play area. I am making thank you cards for Christmas presents as you can see.
I have also begun a book using my newly acquired bind it all (another Christmas present) So keep your eyes peeled.
I also have a new item 'a digital piano' (which sounds like a proper piano) so I can practice for my piano lessons, It makes such a difference.
I will be doing the last session of my paediatrics first aid course tomorrow and test to see if I remember it all.
In addition, I am recovering from another (of many) colds. So hopefully after Sandown Park craft show next weekend I am going to seriously chill out.
Hope everyone is ok out there in blogland...
