Oh dear, I'm really struggling to find time to craft at the moment. I've not made anything this week, and I think I'm regretting increasing my hours at work. On top of that, my 13 year old son is being a right pain in the arse.

Michelle loved the acrylic album, BTW. There were tears in her eyes when she saw it! Tears of joy of course LOL!

I've received a blog award from my crafty friend Helen, thanks Helen, this is an interesting one. I have to list 10 honest things about myself, so here goes:

1. I am short and fat (does this count for two?) with a BMI of 39. I don't need a number to tell me I'm fat, I have a mirror for that, as I told the practice nurse at my GP's.

2. I have a big sense of humour, and love to laugh and make others laugh.

3. I find being a parent hard.

4. I only own one dress (worn once!) and hate wearing high heels.

5. I don't like gardening, but I wish I did.

6. I like body art, I have two tattoos. Oh and I had my navel pierced 15 years ago, way before it was popular (and before I was the owner of a BMI of 39!). Because we didn't know any better, a friend did it with the gun she used for piercing ears and the whole thing got stuck. Which made me hysterical with laughter while my friend was panicking, trying to get it out.

7. Occasionally, I still get emotional when I deliver a baby.

8. I'm calm in a crisis (vital in my job).

9. I like reptiles and have two pet snakes.

10. I wish I had travelled more when I was younger.

So, now you know a bit more about me!
