Time for a little home holiday

Hello my friends I just wanted to let you know that I will be taking a little break for the next week or so from blogging, scrapping, galleries, forums etc. I will be home and I will be checking my emails. That therefore explains why I have filled up my blog with scrap pages to keep everyone happy until then :)

There is much going on right at the moment, with Easter, my birthday, school holidays and Den is also excitingly taking next week off and we all get to be together. We have much planned. A day spent with my family then another with Den's family to celebrate Easter; an adventure day out for my birthday; some library activities and sand art at the local shopping centre; finally, Hugh's eight weeks of diligence finally has come with the specialist appointment this week (so glad Den will be home this week to come with me).

Inbetween time Den will be immersing himself in the many game arena's he has signed up to with the famous Call of Duty "Menace's Raiders" team (Menace being Den's tag name!) Yes, he has his own team now and its a great outlet for him. Hugh, well he has nicknamed himself "lego head" for all the wonderful lego kits he was kind enough to receive for his birthday and is hard at work. Katie, well I have tried valiantly to shield her from a certain "High School Musical" and "Hannah Montana" but little did I know that her father secretly went and hired them for her ....sigh.... but if you could hear her giggle through Hannah Montana or clear the room so she can dance to HSM then you could not resist either.

And me, well I am giving myself a little break to partake in all of this and more. And when I am not I have timed it all rather well to find myself ready to read the final book in the Twilight series. As Katie would say, Mummy has read the poison apple, feather and ribbon book and all I have left is the chess book. Lucky me. I plan to have my head inside a book as much as possible.

So have a wonderful Easter a great week and see you on the other side.

Enjoy your break from blogging and enjoy your family and your book. I read the Twilight series and just couldn't put them down. Last night I finished reading the Alex Rider (Young Adult fiction)series from the UK... really good spy action. So this morning I woke without a book to read. Any suggestions for a good read?

Happy Easter to all!
