May half term in Hopton

Its half term and Hopton holiday village is busy. I swear the entertainment is getting more and more terrible every time i come here. Some days its not too bad but the fun stars are awful at singing and dancing the costumes are knaff. People pay lots of money to stay at this park. Sort it out! Still i must not complain i dont pay and the beach is gorgeous.

Extreme swimming

How do you like my latest bargain from 99p stores. There is nothing worse that having to try to keep the paddling pool in good condition and clean to put awawy for next year. If you follow this tip then your problem is solved, buy same size pool for 99p, and hey presto.

Canvey Island

I took the kids to Canvey on Tuesday, the weather was ok so we escaped for the afternoon. First we walked along the rocks as the tide was out and collected a few sea shells on the way. After we stopped in the park beside the sea wall, the kids played for while while i rested my weary ole legs (38 this year y'know). On our walk back to the car we decided to star jump and do acrobatics it was quite funny until Shannon dropped mark on his head, he screamed as he bounced off the floor. I thought he had broke his neck as he landed a bit crooked. But when he sat up he was smiling so i guessed he was alright.

Growing sunflowers

I decided to plant sunflower seeds a couple of weeks ago, when i park my car outside my home i wanted to be able to see them growing over the top of the wall. So i bought a pack of seeds for 99p and sowed them in a small strip of soil next to the wall. This is the growth after 2 weeks i shall be monitoring them and posting pics on my blog as they grow.

lovely day in park

Nic and i took Ty and Mrk to King George park in Brentwood a couple of weeks ago, i have only just sorted out the pics because they were all taken in raw on my camera. I had to convert the files but converted them to Photoshop files instead of jpeg. so i then had to go and reconvert them again. I shall now be able to post some, yipppeee. Sometimes i really know how to make life difficult for myself.

19th may 2008

It has been a while since i have posted on my blog a layout, so here is a nice double that got inspired by me painting my new scrap room ORANGE, so i am going to look up colour charts and see if this is a particular colour for creativity.
