Seeing Spots & Dots!!

Well as I write this we are girlie free, they spent the night at my moms & those of you that know me, 
know I just don't get on with my mom! She's never really bothered with the girls since they were born, only
 wanting them when it suited her & always treated having them as a chore instead of fun!! Well as me &
 Nige didn't celebrate Valentines day, he took me out for a meal last night, boy was it just 
gorgeous & he was so romantic! He is the bomb & even after all the hassles we have had over the 
last nearly 17 years I love him to bits, he makes me complete!

Anyhoos enough of my waffling on, today is Saturday yay! Which only means one thing, a new challenge over at Crafty Emma's Store Challenge where this week, we want to see your
