Who am I?

It's been a while!! Sorry, life has been very hectic.
September brought about a big change in our household. Not only did the bigger one go back to school, (different class and teacher, big thing!) but the smaller one also started pre-school. I think it was actually a bigger deal for mummy than 'himself' as he had been looking forward to it for ages!
Apart from a slight blip (or rather screaming tantrum) about ten minutes after I had left him on his first day, he seems to have settled into the routine very well. I now enjoy a couple of hours a day when I can actually be myself. I haven't quite remembered who this is yet so it is all a bit strange but I am rather enjoying it. Surprisingly, I am not managing to get more work done. I am finding that the opposite is happening but the house is in better order. So now, I am waiting for the 'me' that I used to be to re-emerge! Has she gone forever, or is she just hiding? Personally I think she is biding her time until she has a little more of it! This is made abundantly clear as I attempt to write this whilst being harassed by the smaller one to tidy up the mess that he has created. Mums are people too! Aren't we?

We have a lovely garden friend! :-)

For a few weeks now, we have had a lovely new friend that lives in our garden.


Isn't he gorgeous!

He's by far the biggest hedgehog I've ever seen, although this isn't really surprising as our garden is hedgehog heaven! We have far too many slugs and snails for my liking, as our mulitlated sunflowers can tell you. We often see him (or her, I'm not sure how to tell at this distance) carefully picking his way across the lawn at tea time. Also, occasionally early in the morning. I was concerned at one point though as I spotted him legging it out of the gate and then didn't see him for a few days but as I was repeatedly told, he was back.
Anyway, I hope he chooses to stay with us for the summer as the children (and I) love to see him. He has been fondly named 'Andy' by the smaller one.

I just have time to pop on a photo of a small selection of pendants available on Mystic Earth
There is a choice of suede thong, silver plated or sterling silver chains to go with them.

£5 turned into £10 and mummy had no money again!!!

I'm just too soft! I had to take some library books back so thought I would combine it with a little holiday treat for the boys. We went to McDonalds, originally intending on the drive through but the queue was huge so we went in. I discovered something new that I hadn't tried before and was pleasantly surprised. The Chicken Salad Deli Sandwich. Do try one, it was really nice!
Anyway, after fighting our way through that, and two happy meals, 2 plastic dragon toys, (one of which was defective) we set off home again. On the way home I decided to treat them further. I decided that £5 each in Toys'R'Us would be nice!!! Why I would considered this a possibility I don't know. It was never going to end well. Don't get me wrong they both had a great time but somehow the £5 turned into £10 and there you go! Skint again!

The bigger one treated himself to a talking, cuddly pokemon toy that he absolutely had to have to go with all of his others!!! The smaller one now has a transformer which he seems to be quite happy with as the vehicle and doesn't care about it being a robot! Could have just got a standard bin lorry instead!! (Yes, I did say bin lorry, don't remember that one in the film do you?)

Anyway, they seem happy with them at the moment, although they will probably be forgotten tomorrow like everything else. Oh no! I nearly said it!! Wasn't like that when I was young!!
Oh well, was bound to happen sooner or later!

6 weeks since I gave up Diet Coke!!!

I would like to announce that it is now 6 weeks since I gave up diet coke!!!! Yay, go me!! It was all I really drank every day, but then my sister sent me an email about the aspartame sweetner that it contained. Apparently it gives you Aspartame poisoning which in extreme cases has been misdiagnosed as MS. Well, I gave up cold turkey straight after reading this email. It was HELL!!!!!!!!!!! I had the worst headache for a whole week. After this time though I began to feel totally different. I had more energy and I could think far more clearly. Now this may be a coincidence but I don't think so. I did try a small glass of coke a couple of weeks ago and couldn't drink it, it tasted terrible! My problem now is what do I drink? I hate the taste of water, have tried various squashes, carbonated water etc. I went to Tesco today to search for Squashes that didn't contain the dreaded sweetner for my children and do you know, I only found three! Ribena, Vimto and an organic one.(which I bought and they hate!) Why do they put sweetner in drinks that already contain sugar?
If anyone knows of any good drinks for me or my kids pllleeeeeaaassseeeee let me know.

Back to school !!! phew!

Another half term survived!!! Just! I love both of my boys to bits but when they get together all day everyday.... need I say more? The sheer volume and all the banging and shouting drives me to distraction. That and all of the extra slave duties back and forwards from the kitchen. Well, its nice to back to normal. Its getting ever closer to when the smaller one starts nursery in September too. Two and a half hours a day just for me, I bet they'll seem like 5 minutes but the quiet will be nice.
The bigger one is going on an overnight residential with the school next month. What a drama thats been, he's going, he's not going, he's going!!!! He doesn't have enough trainers (apparently he needs to take 3 pairs!! What exactly are they planning to do, its only overnight). It will be an experience for him, if he actually makes it there. The smaller one on the other hand still doesn't sleep at night, still downs bottles and bottles of juice and then needs changing completely in the wee(literally) small hours, still pushes me out of bed all night. Sleep, sleep, I miss you!
Lovely husband has also been a big scratchy recently, I think alot of it is due to lack of nicotine!!! He gets his tobacco supplies when my parents come back from their trips and they've been away longer than usual this time. He is so short on golden virginia that he is producing the thinest roll ups I've ever seen!!! Thankfully a friend brought round a packet of reasonably priced stuff yesterday so he should be a bit more human! (well he would be if the shower hadn't packed up on him! Having to have a bath every morning before work doesn't a lovely husband make!)

The Crystal Lady 'Movie Director'

I made a short film today!!!! When I got up this morning I found that the bigger one had discovered Windows Movie Maker and was busy creating a film about his favourite computer game. This seemed like fun so I thought I would have a go too. It was fun, once I had worked out how it all worked and you can see the fruits of my labour on You Tube. (Or actually just below here) Its not perfect but its a start.

New look!!

I thought it was about time my blog had a new look. It isn't completely finished but its getting there. It may develop a little more over the next week or so when I have time to fiddle with it.

I've been rather busy lately doing the magazine and updating my Mystic Earth site. I have added seperate pages for my Crystal Properties and will soon be adding more stones to make it an even more comprehensive guide.

This morning I completed two sets of bookmarks. A set of four for Mystic Earth and more for the Gothic section of my Radiance Crystals site. They are all double sided, laminated and have a lovely charm on the organza ribbon.

These are the Gothic Designs.


These can be found on the Mystic Earth site and have the properties for the stones on the back.


They are £2.50 each. I'm pleased with how they came out.
