Hi folks, my name is Susan, I have been married for 26 wonderful years in which we redid our vows last year. Such a wonderful surprise from my husband. I am the mother of 3, 2 sons DP 24, Darz 21 and a daughter Dea 14 years old.
I love to make cards of all kinds, but really love to make wedding invites they are my favourite. So if you need or know someone that needs let me know.
How time flies..........................since I was on here last. I am so sorry not kept this up to dat I have had an awful year and believe it or not im still in bandages on my ankle I had eventually to get the metal work out of my ankle as I was allergic to it and some of it had broken. I was then allergic to alot of my dressings it has been a nightmare but this week I see a light at the end of the tunnel to being bandage and hospital visits free!!! My grandson is almost standing up on his own and he is wonderful and has kept me going this last year. I have been crafting and still run the "Our Craft Club" in Nairn at the Rosebank Church Hall on a Tuesday Evening. Thankyou to all on your comments. I will get back into the challenges soon xx
Well we are delighted to announce that our first grandchild has arrived he is Connor Colin Matheson he weighed 8lb13oz and he is in my eyes gorgous. He was born at 12.49pm and I got cuddles last night I do have photos but couldnt get them posted on here but will try again in a wee while

I am so sorry it has been along time since I have been on here, poor blog has been neglected for the last couple of months, no real reason until I broke my ankle badly and now Im layed up. To those who know about this sorry i will just type this out of my head. I was walking Brin our dog on the rockies beach which is exactly what it says and yes I slipped I didnt fall but my ankle went snap. mmmmmmmmmm nice, it wasnt sore but i shouted my mum sat down the screamed for no real reason other than I was panicing at the thought of what the ambulance and doctors would have to do to me. The ambulance took a very long time to get me they were 24 miles away from where they should have been Nairn has a very large population and yet we only have 1 ambulance which wasnt where it should have been. Being a first aider I new not to move it, no one asked if the tide was coming in or if being on the beach I was in danger. I was getting colder by the minute and my hubby got to me from 17 miles away just as the ambulance did and Iheard him coming he was so annoyed with them. The doc gave me morphine 2 lots, and i was given gas and air the found i had broken it in 3 places and a dislocation so once they got me comfy and up to the ward they found that the morphine hadnt gone into my vane anyway I have rambled on a bit and i appologise but it was traumatic so far i have had 6 casts on because of swelling i was in hospital for a week.
I would like to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THE VERY BEST FOR 2010.
