just a quick fly-by post as i don't want to leave it too long and lose momentum ... lol. But this week has been great...

We have had Joshua all week and he is just a darling, Ethan and Joshua really are the loves of my life. It is hard work sometimes, I get tired, can get grumpy .. but the games they play, the funny things they say, the love i have for them just makes my life so perfect! So this week has mostly been about being a 'mummy/aunty' .. ie cooking, playing, ironing, cuddles, rolling around on the floor, snuggles.. bliss!

This week my good friend Hils also got us tickets to see Madonna in July .. OMG I am beyond excited... I have been a huge Madonna fan since I was about 8, so you are talking.. cough, nearly 29 years!!! Love her, she was a great role model growing up. I think every young girl needs a strong, independent, outspoken, liberated, creative and driven woman as a role model.. and she was mine. So July 21st, I can not wait!!!

i also did some more Florida prep, obv. Ordered my Fairfax card and loaded it with my first LOT of $ ... mucho excitement .... I did some holiday shopping at Boden (well, you need to take advantage of the sales) and picked out some essential bits at Old navy (I have a massive soft spot for ON, saddo!)...

I also remembered today that my Studio Calico kit should be coming this week. I stopped my sub in Sept as I never get much of a chance to scrap over the summer with holidays and school being off and then no chance in the run up to Christmas with all the orders. But when my mojo came back in January I signed back up to subscribe again as their kits are amazinga nd it is worth it even for the shop, lol! I had a BIG splurge with this kit, and an add on and lots of extra from the shop .. lots of new bits and bobs.. so that is great.. hopefully it should come tomorrow or sat!

I also have some other lovely. amazing news... but i am not ready to share it just yet ... but it is MEGA exciting....

anyway, off to chill with a glass of vino and some downloads. Up bright and early for nursery and school run, walking club then my lovely friend is coming round with her two munchkins.. so much cuddles and hopefully a bottle feed and nappy change or two..

back soon. to share news :-)))

this week my mind has mostly been on Disney and Florida.....

and more planning..

I go through waves of being swept up in planning when something new occurs, or a milestone is reached. This week I pre-orderd my Photopass and I think finally whittled down my list of ADRs (get to book them on 18th March)... decided to definitely to MNSSHP (Halloween event in Magic Kingdom) and currently pondering over what to dress up as. Lots of friends helped pitch in with ideas, but my current favourite is to go as Snow and Ethan as one of the dwarfs! So we have been reading lots of trip reports and watching lots of videos to get us in the mood ... so excited!

But I have also been busy with work, had some nice orders in for baby items in the past few weeks and am currently working on some tag blankies and dribble bibs and after showing photos on facebook I now have quite a few orders for changing mats. I do have a website, but i am so rubbish at remembering to update it, and with the immediacy of Facebook/iphone, my BuzyMums facebook page is much more up to date ... really need to get my finger out and sort the website!!

I also had the twins yesterday, such sweet wee boys. Loads of fun and they are so well behaved! I have Joshua all next week, which E and I are really looking forward to. This will be the first time I try to get them to sleep in the same room.. Joshua's bed now has much more space, since I redecorated Ethan's room and moved everything around ... so fingers crossed!

Anyway, I need to get ready for the walking club!
Will be back to post some more photos soon!
