The Downward slippery slope to Christmas...aahhh

It's almost August and that means Christmas products will be appearing in Asda and the likes.This year I'm going to really try and start making my Christmas cards earlier......................LOL
Well it's been over 3 months since I last blogged though I do visit other peoples blogs every day so no excuse really.
Lots gone on in my neck of the woods. I now have a new job with permenant hours in a lovely small care home in Ipswich, which I've been at for 2 months now, working nights which suit me and the added bonus I can take my craft stuff with me and craft during the night. How good is that.
I handed in my notice at the Council home in April and my other 3 mornings a week job I leave at the end of this month. Means I should have abit more time to myself during the day.........crafting time. The new care job means every other week I'm working full-time, tho' working it at night doesn't seem like it..............I'd hate to work full-time during the day, so feel very lucky I'm doing the job I love and the hours that suit me. I also work with some lovely people.
Aaron my DS1 lost his job a couple of months ago, but thankfully now has another one which he loves and suits his personality as he's a social animal.
Tim DS2 passed his driving test in June, first attempt so my car doesn't spend long in our drive at the mo. He wants his own car, but we've told him to wait cost enough to put him on my insurance...............sold his motorbike last weekend so that's two car wheels bought.Ha!ha!
I now have my shed back so I've a little job of sorting it out.
Emily DD is coming to the end of her work experience. She's been at a local(the one I went to years ago) Primary school with the year1's and has loved it.Hubby's still doing his job be it part-time, but hey it's a job.
Went to Papermaze crop yesterday(been going there for over 5 years now) and actually completed and I mean completed TWO layouts..............this is a first. Even more unbelievable when I went to the GoGo crop last month I completed SIX, yes I did say SIX layouts. I'm desperately trying to use up old stash and am atlast succeeding slightly. It's sooo hard with all the lovely new papers that keep appearing on the shelves at Papermaze. Yesterday I just had to buy the lovely Echo Park range.
Now I'm hoping to have more time to myself I'm hoping to get lots of scrapping done, I've an album to finish for Tim by September as he'll be 18 on the 10th.
Well lots to do, washing to hang out.......where has the sun gone!?
