I have been photo challenged!!!!

The lovely Julie who owns the Inspirational blog, Inspirational Tips, Techniques & Tutorials and her own personal blog Scrapping Away has given me this photo challenge which I think is totally "COOL":

In the 6th folder, take the 6th picture and post it on your blog.Write something about the picture.Challenge 6 new people to join this challenge..

Okay I am anal about things like this, so I have a photo album folder, inside all the years in their own folders, in side those all the months in their own folder and inside that all the days with their own folder, so what I have done is kept going to the 6th folder until I got down to this photo



This photo is a special photo for me, it's not the best one that I took in this series of photos, but I haven't cheated and used it, I took this photo on 27th October 2003

This is my Nan and Aimee! Aimee is just over a month old!!! Wasn't she a pudgy little thing!!! The sad part about this photo is that we lost my Nan in the May of the next year!!! Anyone who really knows me, knows that I absolutely adored my Nan, would do anything for her, even though she always gave me a hard time, but that was the banter between the two of us, and no one else really understood it!!!! Their was also a special bond between Aimee and Nan! On the last day that we saw Nan, she was in bed and I put Aimee down beside her (Aimee was 8 mths old by then) and Aimee just snuggled up to Nan and kept smiling at her!! It was beautiful to see and for once in my life I didn't have a camera with me!!!! The freaky thing is Aimee will often start crying and I will ask her what is wrong and she will say "I miss my Nana Peggy (this was Chloe's name for my Nan). This totally freaks me out as I will question her, as she has grandparents in Ireland, America and England, but no it is my Nan she is speaking about!!!! How is that as Aimee was tiny when she last saw her!!!! I have that necklace that my Nan is wearing, it was given to me by my Aunt, Nan had it on when she passed away and I shall be passing it down to Aimee when she is old enough!!!! Well I had better stop as I am welling up as it is!!!!

So I am going to challenge







Hi all!

Warning a lot of reading in this post sorry!!!!

I haven't had a great week last week :( First of all I got a tooth ache, and I took so many pain killers you could hear them rattling in my tummy, lol!!! I made an appointment at the dentist for Thursday! I woke up at about 4:00am Thursday morning with horrible cramps in my tummy (was it the painkillers I wondered) but no I had diarrhoea, ick!!!! So I phoned in work and said I wouldn't be in, I felt horrible but I had to go to the dentist as my tooth was still sore!! I got the bus to the dentist and after waiting about 1/2 and hour, the dentist saw me and said that my back tooth needed to come out, but I had to take penicillin for the infection to go, so on the 9th of Feb I will be having my tooth out!!!! On the way back on the bus the bus broke down and we had to wait about 15 mins for a replacement bus, arggghhh, all I wanted to do was go pop the penicillin along with some more pain killers and get some sleep before the girls got home from school, nope that did not happen!!! Then when the girls got home, Aimee was complaining of tummy ache too, oh no not poor Aimee again!!! But when she tried to go to the toilet nothing was happening and she was crying in pain! The car was in the garage getting fixed so I had no transport and it was a horrible day!! Aimee felt okay after a while but the pain kept comming back, I got her to drink some fresh orange juice. She kept waking through the night, I still wasn't any better so that meant that Aimee and myself would be off of school on Friday!!! I kept rushing to the toilet, and Aimee kept saying her tummy hurt!!! Finally at about 4:00 pm she did a poo, sorry about the details, and it was huge, poor little girl! She was perfect after that no pain, I still wasn't feeling too great!!! But on Saturday and Sunday I had to tidy away all my craft stuff back into my cupboard as it was driving us all crazy with all my stuff all over the lounge!!! So that was my weekend, oh and if you are interested we have caught 1 adult and 5 baby mice, ick!!!! We went with mouse traps as the humane ones weren't catching anything the first night we had the spring trap down we caught the adult, we haven't caught any more since, so we are hoping that is it!! The traps will stay down for another few days just in case!
Today Chloe is off school with a sore throat and just feeling horrible!!!

On a happier note, Rleen has very kindly given me an award, which has so brightened up my day after the horrible week I have had, thank you so much Rleen!!!
