I am trying to pack all of my stuff up in the hope that I will be able to sell my house quicker if I declutter it and that means packing away and sorting through most of my craft stuff. I have packed away quite a lot of it and have sorted through quite a bit. In my major re-sort I have some stamps and some punches that I have decided I don't use and therefore wondered if anyone out there wanted them or had something to swap them with. I don't want any money for them, perhaps just a little something towards postage and packaging, depending on how many things you want, but if we're swapping, then postage and packaging is free. Above is a picture of the punches I am giving away and below here are the stamps. They have all been used, though some more than others.
Yes... you will notice that one of the stamps is a Penny Black. This is NOT because I have gone off Penny Black...far from it! This stamp is merely because I no longer use him and haven't used him as much as I thought I would.
All I would ask is that you could kindly let me know before late Saturday night as I am taking the lot to a Boot Sale on Sunday morning if there's no interest here.
Don't miss out!!!
Her Leavers' Disco was just for Year 6 students and she had a great time. They all did. I remember most of them from when they were in Infant school so it was quite nice to see how they had all grown up and matured into gorgeous boys and girls. I wish them all well.
Myself and Lewis waited by the gate with her and her friends and two lovely big white limousines collected them all and took them on their hour long journey around various places they wanted to visit and then dropped them off at the park where me and Lewis met up with them a few hours later. They were all still crying as we all said our goodbyes and promises to keep in touch. Brought back a lot of memories for me when I left school, although I remember leaving Secondary School more than I remember leaving Junior School. Still, times change and I hope she makes a whole lot of new friends in September, and remembers the ones she has left behind.
Sorry I haven't been around for a while, I have been so busy making wedding invitations and sorting Lianne out these past few weeks, I don't know where all the time has gone...
Keep in touch, Fae xxx

Anyway, last night was a preparation for today, as today was Secondary School Induction Day for Lianne and most other Year 6 students in Hertfordshire. I don't know who was more nervous, me or Lianne, when I dropped her off in the School's main hall this morning. She said she was part nervous, part excited and I think I felt a little of that too. She kissed me goodbye and ran into the Hall to meet her other school mates who are moving on with her. As I left, a couple of Year 6's were crying and I felt a bit upset for them. But Lianne seemed happy enough when I left her and as I continued my journey onto work I couldn't help but feel a little sad too...my baby is growing up!
At the end of her school day, I waited anxiously in the Hall with the other Year 6 parents and the Hall doors opened and out they came, all smiling and laughing...and suddenly there she was! BEAMING! Her day had been brilliant. She had made some new friends and couldn't wait for September to get here!

This time I have made a yellow basecard with a flappy bit with some fab vellum background paper (sorry, can't remember who makes it as I've already hacked loads of it off, including the bit with the name on) and threaded a yellow polka-dot ribbon through to secure it when closed. I then added the image to the top of the ribbon and added several flowers to 'fill' the front up. Note: I used an odd number Sarn, he hee hee xxx

Hope you like it,
Thank you all, it's so nice to know that I have such great friends, some of whom barely know me, but thanks all the same. I can open a bottle of wine or two now, and sit back and wait for my lovely daughter to come home so that I can share some good news with her too, she's been waiting for it a long time and I'm so glad that I can finally share some with her.

She did brilliantly on her Race for Life on Sunday morning, she completed the 5k and was a little worn out at the end of it all, but she was very privileged to have taken part and has a medal to prove she completed the challenge. I will take a photograph of her when she returns from her school trip as there was far too little time to do it Sunday evening, as I was preparing for her trip.
Other news is... I got a telephone call from the Headmaster at the school where I work yesterday evening and... unfortunately, my appeal was unsuccessful. I cried for about an hour but I think I am over the worst of it. Although I desperately need a cuddle from Lianne as I am missing her so badly, didn't think I would as she has been away from home before, by going away to America with my mum and nan for a couple of years running, but this time it feels different. I just miss her so much.
I haven't given up on the school front, I am keeping her name on all of the continued interest lists and hope to receive some good news soon. Keeping my chin up and my thoughts positive (it's the only way I can cope!)
Thanks for all of your support.
