I got up yesterday morning I felt like I was suffering cabin fever, so Vicki and I decided to go out for the day, we headed off to Ravencraig park. I love that place in the winter, I love it all year round but there is just something about it in the winter.
I do love Sepia Photo's lol
I have never ventured all the way along Ravencraig but today we decided to just keep walking and we found allsorts of gorgeous sites along the way, a stunning beach....
A tunnel in a rock face, which leads to.... A gorgeous harbour........
.... and the scariest looking wall I have ever seen, lol.
Then we found the Harbour masters house and went in as it had a cafe and museum, such a cute place, I want to bring my mum here.
I have to confess, Vicki's confusion about the Water for "hotdogs" LOL you can guess what she thought PMSL!!
Hmmmm! My feelings about modern art on the beach! Well if it was good and looked like lots was put into it then ok! However when it looks like planks of wood with a coat of Dulux, I have to wonder how much it cost and what on earth is the point.
The last Beach view for me is this stunning broken Rock, which mum pointed out, looks like a Dragon, so I will always call it Dragon Rock now.
I had a great day and I am so glad we went.
Thanks for popping by. have a great day. Jay xx
The picture is of my mum while she was quitting smoking over a year ago now, she has not touched one since. Mum struggled much more quitting than I did as you can see by the nicorette inhaler and the look in her eyes lol.
I was not a bingo card fan but have used the several times of late, I think it was just fear of what to do with them, I do love them now.

"Lets start at the very beginning!" (Yes I am humming the intro to, the sound of musics, Doh a Deer lol).
So I was up at 6am this morning, with Vicki and we made our way to the hospital, arriving at 7.40 am YUK!!
I was admitted (so far so good, better than last time lol), I then found out that instead of the first on the list that I had been promised for my operation, (due to Anxiety and Diabetes) I was 9th on the list, I was really upset and started to cry as I knew I could no go through with it if I had hours to panic and get more and more anxious, so when the Anesthesiologist came round, I told her I could not do it if it took that long as I was already feeling sick because I had not had breakfast and I was already getting so scared. She said she would get it changed.
5 minutes later my nurse (who was a sweetheart) told me that I was bumped up to 2nd and I would have been first but the first lady had already gone in lol. Ok so I was coping, the doctor came he was really nice and I felt less stressed.
So!!! Then the Anesthesiologist returned and told me they wanted to do a local anesthetic and then a spinal something that I mist (but I was then told and EPIDURAL) GRRRRRR!! I started to panic again so I asked her how much it hurt and she told me it was not at all painful and that I would be fine and they would make me a little high so I could relax.
YEAH RIGHT!!! Relax!! RELAX!! Are they kidding!!! so I was sat on the side of the operating table and they gave me a local an. alas they first 3 Epi. trys were so painful I was screaming (and I have a pretty high pain threshold!) so I had a second an. I think and then 3 more tries. Now I was vomiting and crying like crazy. So in the end they said they would revert back to plan A, the general an. which they then tell me a machine has been playing up so they need time to prepare it and the theatre so they would wheel me back to the ward and leave me there for a while (What the hell is a while!!) I am in total melt down at this point and I had to tell them I could not do it!!! YUP this time I chose not to but I think I was under to much stress. Everyone was supportive of my choice which was a good thing.
Of course now that I am calm and have had a day away from it I feel daft, however hindsight is no use as it just trashes your self esteem and you have to make the choice at the time not afterwards.
I am in loads of pain, my back didn't like the sticky pad they put on either and I have a deep bruise which seems to be spreading and really bloody hurts. GRRRRRRR!!!!
When I got home I was sorting out some bits in a draw and found this:I have now pinned him to my notice board as he is a piece of history and I am glad I have him, I was given him a few years ago when I worked as a Christmas temp at Woolworths, I am still sad they have gone and find myself on a regular basis thinking, must pop in and grab ..... at woolies! Doh!
Last but Deffo not LEAST.
After a great deal of soul searching I decided Rosie needs a new home. Anyone who knows me and my mum, know that this was an almost impossible choice to make but although she is one of the most gorgeous and affectionate cats I have ever had, she does not like other cats, in fact that is an understatement, she needs her own space and someone who can give her all the love she needs. I was not sure were I was going to start to look for an owner I would be happy with ( I am VERY choosy)..... then my saviour piped up with, I want her! She loves me and I love her.... Vicki is going to take her!! Yipppppeeeee! So not only do I approve of her owner I will see her all the time and I can have her for holidays etc. Brilliant solution. So now I am Auntie Jay and here is Rosie with New mummy Vicki. Awwwwwwwww. Yay!
So although the day started really crappy it was a bad day turned good.
love Jay xx

Happy scrapping Jay xx
Ok so with no money goes window shopping and I came to the conclusion that I have so much stash for scrapping, that I should stop staring at it, so I started to look at fun stuff and I soooooo want all these Hello Kitty Kitchen bits.
I am also in love with these bizzare and maybe a little Ugly in an oh so cute way! Funky Face banks.
Anyway, enough waffle, I am off to keep myself busy by tidying and cleaning.
I will blog when I am back, I go in tomorrow morning and will either come out tomorrow night or the following day. I will blog again as soon as I can sit up, which I hope wont be long.

Then I finshed this layout I was working on last night, using BG Off beat papers.
Apart from my Oh so OBVIOUS love of BasicGrey, I am also totally loving Magic mesh at the moment too.
Happy Scrapping. Jay xx

SNOW SNOW SNOW!!! Vicki is so excited she is already getting up (which is a miracle in it's self lol) and wants brekkie, so she can go out and make a snow Angel! Oh yes she did lol and here is the proof ROTFPMSL:
So the only other thing Vicki was desperate to do was to make a proper full size snowman because she has never made one before, mum told her the best ways to start a snowball anjd she was off, she did the lower and upper body and I did the head and boobs! Yep thats right she is a SNOW WOMAN! and here she is in her stages of creation.
So here she is Coco the Snow woman, I have to confess I was NOT excited at the prospect of making a snow person but I did actually enjoy it loads and loads.
I had a great day, the only downside of today was the the vets receptionist asking if Vicki was my Daughter!!! I am 36 and she is 26 so around half and hour I wanted to top myself lol but I am ok with it now, I don't think Vicki will let me forget it for a long time though, do you???
Hope your all having a great day. Jay xx
