Where's the weekend gone?

I can't believe how quick this weekend has gone, its simply flown by...
I've got quite a busy week this week, later today we are going to the girls school for a look around before they start in September. Then tomorrow morning we hand the keys back to our old house & thats it no more going back lol.... then later on tomorrow we have to go to the local education authority to make an appeal about Danni getting in the same school as Katie, a load of faffin if you ask me....we have already been told they can't say no because Katie has already been excepted. So thats another of Niges holiday days wasted argghhh!!! Getting worried now because he's not gonna have many left when I have my op in September & I can't do anything for at least 6 weeks....Wednesday will hopefully get chance to do a few crafty things...Thursday Charlie has got his check up at the vets ...& friday I am refusing to get out of bed lololol

Well as its Monday I have got two cards for you today the first is for 'The Crazy Challenge' where this week our theme is 'Boys, Will Be Boys' and our sponsor this week is the 'Digi Doodle Shop'

 & overcast makes me wanna cry lol

Lol I've got a confession to make I don't like clowns (I did tell Lauretta x) but I thought I'd
 be a brave girl, put on my big girl pants & use him, & I have come to the conclusion as long as they are
 drawn & not real they are fab lolol

I thought I'd show you a close up of his shiney little (ok big) nose lol
