Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone, hope you are all well, the will I or wont I get the lurgy has been confirmed as today I awoke with the same snotty nose my kids have had for the past week! grrr, and yesterday I felt great aww well it should soon pass I hope! did you know they wont sell over the counter cough mixtures for 5 or under!!! I was truly gobsmacked, all my little man has needed this week is something to soothe it and they have changed the law, madness in my eyes, I know there are the very few unresponsible parents but geeeeees!

Its time for another Winter Wonderland Challenge and this week our theme is "Gingerbread" I wanted to do something different colourwise, but looking at the rest of the Dt creations I should have stuck with traditonal Gingerbread colours aww well

This Gingerbread dude is one I got from AP, by Rubbernecker, he is so cute, but I shouldnt have changed his colours! lol. The paper is dcwv and the rest just embellies.

Thanks for

I was truly stunned this morning to see the terrible news that Stephen Gately has passed away talk about wow, I mean at 33 who just passes away in there sleep, it is madness!. I was like many the teenage girl who stood in the snow and the rain waiting to catch a glimpse of Boyzone, the silly moo who lost her voice at concerts, my bedroom walls were covered with there piccys, I have all their autographs something I dont think I will ever part with, 2009 is certainly taking many celebrities with it, RIP Mr

Thanks for stopping

Tasha said...

Oh and one more thing - i found out yesterday that i couldnt buy over the counter cough mixture for Mills! SHe is getting over a cold and its turned into a cough! She needed somehing to sooth it but no some idiot thinks that she should have to suffer and not be able to slee because of it! Agggghhhh i got mad lol!

I was so shocked about Stephen Gately - i wasnt a Boyzone fan but he was definately an institution when i was growing up - i couldnt go into a girl friends room without seeing him plastered everywhere lol! sad and quiet scarry that someone could just suddenly die in their sleep like that so young!

love tasha xx
