what expression number are you? mine is 11

Your Expression Number is 11

You tend to be associated with idealistic concepts and spiritual issues.

You have high potentials that are somewhat difficult to live up to.

You have very strong intuition and you can be a bit psychic at times.

Highly inspirational, you can lead merely by your own example.

You have an inborn inner strength and awareness that helps you advise others.

Although you have what it takes for a successful career, you belong outside the business world.

Overly sensitive and temperamental, you tend to have a lot of nervous tension.

You dream a lot, so much so that you may be more of a dreamer than a doer.

Fantasy and reality tend to get intermingled for you, and that leads to impracticality.

what colour do you need, mines green .

found this on so i thought id see what colour i need in my life.

You Need Some Green in Your Life
Green will make you feel alive, renewed, and balanced.
And with a little green, you will project an aura of peacefulness and harmony.
If you want stability, you've got to get a little green in your life!

For extra punch: Combine green with blue or purple

The downside of green: It can promote jealousy in yourself or others

The consequences of more green in your life:

You will be drawn to a new life path
You will feel free to pursue new ideas and interests, no matter how strange
You will be released from the demands and concerns of others">What Color Do You Need?

Here's who I tag!!! Absolutely no obligation whatsoever to these lovely ladies though!


new old sewing machine and lace making box

this is the sewing machine i was given by my neighbour the other day, ive always wished for a hand sewing machine and wow i now have one, it works a treat and has loads of bobbins and bits with it :)

this is the old lace making box i was given today, needs some renovation but its lovely, also the needles and cotton were also in the draws within the box.

fancy dress

heres a few pics of what ive been up to this week, except the grim reeper one, which is what james has dressed up as tonight for his school halloween ghoulish disco .

this is a roman dress i made for a friends little girl for school today, she is in year 3 and they are studying romans.

the next two are year 4 ancient egyptian, the dress was for georgia next door and the pharoah is of course james, with his i later added gold to it to bring it out and it finished it off nicely, forgot to take a pic though this morning LOL.

hi again

seem to be making this a habit at the moment only posting once a week, oops.

well busy week again more hospitals and hospitals and hospitals , but i wont bore you with them LOL

at least this saturday was what i call a normalish day, got up later than rest of week, took the girls out for a lovely walk just paul and myself through the woods, o i do love autumn all natures colours littered throughout the leafs falling from the trees, rustling noises you turn and look just to see another leaf dropping from above. rustling on the ground as you walk amongst the fallen leaves gorgeous, i could quite easily loose myself completely in there, infact when im on my own i often do :)

i had to do the dreaded shop today as had run out of loads of things and couldnt put it off any longer, well that done i needed a cuppa, then was able to make the soya milk, ginger nuts and hobnobs. with that all done, i prepared tea, homemade kebabs tonight which mike and his girlfriend also had with us.
james is with his grandad again this weekend, but they are going to romney,hythe & dymchurch railway for a bugs day, its been a lovely day down here so im sure they would have had a good time, james will tell me all about it tomorrow LOL.

we have also made a start on building our chook house, and once finished will sort all the fencing out, so we can get our chickens :D we were going to wait till springtime, but one of our friends has told about a place that breeds them all year round, and we will be able to buy ones that are just getting old enough to be laying for about £3 each, so with that knowledge , have decided why are we waiting to do and get something we've been dreaming of for soooooooo long.

watch this space im hoping by november they will be insitue. then just the names to sort LOL

we also increased our fur baby family the other day, we have a new little polecat, called smudge. she is soooooo cute and very friendly, still settling in properly but ol'barney bear has taken her under his wing, and she is playing with bandit our other polecat, also puff and annie the ferrets, annie is getting on now and sleeps quite a bit, but puff is normally up and playing with the youngsters and mothering them LOL.

this is smudge isnt she adorable.

and here is bandit, also a darling.

bits about my week.

thought id better say hello as havnt posted all week, been bit hectic and lots of ups and downs this week.
i went for a lovely walk today on my own with the girls, went right down into the bottom woods which was lovely, could smell the woods, earthy woody just gorgeous, the girls had a good time and i was out for nearly 2 hours, i think i needed it as much as they did, its like a freedom and escape from everything going on, peacefull and serene all in one, back to nature, heavenly.
ive also been cycling more this week as from wednesday we have had lovely weather down here, james loves cycling to school as do i, and i do two runs there and back each day, i also popped into the farmers market thursday, so had 3 runs out on my bike, and we went to the supershop after school thursday so even extra miles. James loves shopping by bike with me.

my dad popped in tonight on his way home and has taken james with him for the weekend, think this will do him good, and give him a break from everything going on at home with his dad, hes been very tense lately and we think very frightened of whats been going on, i mean i have trouble dealing with it all so how does an 8yr old cope..................... paul is also having trouble with it all, hates feeling so tired all the time, and now his arm has swollen and pain in his shoulder, we are just hoping that the pick line has not done anything it shouldnt have, and is just muscle fatigue from a very old injury in his shoulder. but am keeping an eye on things and checking all is ok, or we will be back in casualty again like last night but this time waiting for an xray of his chest. will see.

ive had two lovely surprises this week, two of my friends Linda and jennie on the creative living forum, have sent me maltesers, yes its a weakness of mine LOL. also linda sent james a special worry stone in its own little bag, it is gorgeous shaped as a heart, and sunday paul and i are going to put our love into to, so if james gets worried about anything when hes not with us, he can take it out hold it tight and know our love is with him, so hopefully easing or taking away the worry. such a lovely thought.

ive been knitting christmas presents as well this week, and still trying to make a bat for halloween, nearly done but keep getting interuptions. have also started on a camoflage bag for paul, hadnt enough fabric in one piece left so have stitched pieces together to make two large pieces ready to sew into a bag for him, will post pics once completed.
