Boo to sickness

Not much to say at the moment.  I have both little ones ill with the sickness bug.  Aled went down first Tuesday night, but Wednesday he was running around, generally driving me crazy and we thought he was better.  How wrong we were!  Yesterday he was sent home from school as he had diarrhoea and things just got worse from there on.  By the evening he was unable to keep any food down and has been up during the night being sick as well.

My poorly babies. :-(

Morning time comes and little Noah has also been sick and is also unable to keep anything down.  So now I have 2 poorly babies curled up on the sofa generally feeling sorry for themselves.  Noah is a bit more cheerful than Aled, but still doesn't have the energy to do much today. :-( 

All I can say is thank crunchie it's Friday today!  I am working this weekend, so it will be hubby's turn to be on sick duty tonight!  I know that he is hoping that they feel better by tomorrow as he is wanting to take full advantage of the good weather while we have it!  Fingers crossed!

Weekly Weigh In

As I mentioned in my last post, I am currently doing Slimming World in a bid to try to loose the post baby (and chocolate) weight.

Tuesdays are my weekly weigh in day, so I will try to post up here how I've done.  This week I have lost 2 & 1/2 lbs, which I am really pleased about.  That makes my total weight loss at 11lbs in 6 weeks. :-)

I have had my naughty moments this week, and ended up having pizza on Friday and lots of munchy food on Saturday, but I think my new weekend job is helping me to loose some of the weight.  Not only does working all day mean that I am unable to snack during the day, but also my work station is a 15 min walk from the staff building, so I am getting some good exercise in on those two days that I am there.

Heres hoping that next week is just as good.

Hello and welcome to my blog!!

Well hello there!

I bet you thought I'd abandoned you!  It's been a manic week and I just didn't get chance to come back here after setting up my blog!

Well, I am Jackie.  I am 32, married to Neil and mum to 3 gorgeous boys.  My boys are PJ, who is 13, Aled who's 3 and little Noah who is 2.  I am mainly a SAHM, but I do have 2 part time jobs working a couple of evenings a week and also weekends.  I am also part owner, and main social networker of Craft EE's.  This is a small home run business that I have with my mum and sisters.  I will try not to spam you too much with the business side of things.  We do have our own blog if you would like to have updates from the business.

I love crafty things and have just recently got my own sewing machine.  I will most likely post up pictures and links to my personal projects on here.  I also love baking and will be putting up pictures of my recent bakes on here as well.  I am trying not to bake too much at the moment, as I am also doing Slimming World in a bid to loose some weight.  So far, I have lost 8 & 1/2 lbs in the last 6 weeks, which is not as good as I would like.  I really do struggle with my will power though and do need a push every now and again!

So, that's a little bit about me.  I look forward to blogging more soon!
