Hiiiiiii .. I'm back :)))

Yes, we came back last Sunday from an amazing two week holiday in Orlando, and now I'm really hoping to be able to get back to my routine, catch up on a few blogs and start my card-making again, which I haven't been able to do so far. Jet lag finally gone now, done all the washing ... not all the ironing though.. aarrrgh :/ still more housework to do, and kitchen finally getting done too!!! Yes, kitchen is still upside down, but as planned, the carpenter did the kitchen cupboards while we were gone and now he came to fix them in place. He already came twice, so hopefully after we get the new fridge and freezer tomorrow he will only need to come another time or two and I can say FINALLY!!!!!

But no more of this boring stuff.... guess where I have to organize now ... my craft room... and why ???? Woo hooo... I bought so many stuff from Michael's, thanks to my friends Kathy and Lou, who told me where to go, that I really don't know where I am going to put everything :)))) He he .. luckily OH didn't say anything and he just let me do... Don't want to tell you how much I spent.. I don't want to feel bad, of course I don't, but if I do think about it, I might feel bad and I don't want :)))) Anyway, I bought an embossing and cutting machine!!!! some embossing folders, a cutting die (yes just one as they didn't have any ones I liked :|) a heat gun, a circle cutter, lots and lots of Martha Stewart punches, lots and lots of ribbon, some paper pads, some stamps, flowers... I don't know what happened but could it be that the stuff just fell in my bag???? he he :) I really can't wait to get done with all the work that needs to be done around the house so that I can start blogging and crafting again!!!! So missed you all!! I did peek a bit around, but I couldn't leave any comments as I was using just my mobile and it is so slow and had only a few minutes in the morning before we went out for the day.

This is my favourite photo which we took at the Universal Studios ... can you see I'm soaking wet and enjoying myself....

Here I am go-karting at the Fun Spot where we spent a whole day. The kids didn't want to leave.

Eating lobster for dinner ..

Today I was dragged to the Star Wars Convention. Not my idea of fun, but I have to say I enjoyed it ....

... but still... I prefer a day at a park..

.. riding an awesome roller coaster

or going down a water slide...

or just shopping!!!!!

He he ... now showing off my new designer clothes :)))

Well, I go for today but I'll be popping round to say hello in the coming days :))

Big hugs

Hi Dora - good to have you back. Looks like you needed to buy extra cases while you were out there to bring everything home in (I've done that before.
It takes a while to catch up I've just found that out. But glad you had a good holiday.
