Home is where the heart is...and the kids!!!















Good evening to you all...
May I first start my post with the good news on the lawn bowls front. We won..lol...woop woop!!!!We are now officially the top 2 team in pennants and have now advanced to a playoff next week I believe...will let you know how that goes.

Jacob had his specialist appointment today, and for those of you that have children with special medical needs, you would know its something to get worked upoover as you always hope to walk away with answers...we rarely do, but i have learnt to live with that! his lung function test was good, but to be honest, for a kid whose title is acute, life threatening spasmodic croup, i an talking from normal and a few seconds later his airways can collapse, well , it is no great news... i must watch and treat as needed, as i have done the past 9 nearly. years...with winter coming up, i am exhausted just thinking about it!!!he is doing a fitness test next week, so we may find out why he gets so puffy when excercising, and so exhausted and needs rests like a toddler!!!!

Next, i must tell you that artastic are celebrating their first birthday...there are prizes galore, so head on over there...HERE...and you will find the details...
Here is my sample for the inspiration for the month of may...a canvas...i am into them at the moment....

Well...hope you are all safe and well, and I'll catch up with you on your blogs...
Lots of it
Mandy
