The facial expressions on the pics do look like they weren't enjoying themselves and were there under duress but they boys actually loved it as they got to choose their own geodes when they were in one piece, they looked rather like prehistoric eggs.
Then they got to watch the man split them into two pieces.
And, finally, if you are still with me my take on the word for today.

I've also played digi style a little bit this week. I have decided to not do 12x12 digi layouts but have gone for 13" x 11" as this size fits better onto my screen for screen savers and is the size of a blurb book - how handy is that.

This shot has obviously not been taken today from not so sunny Cheshire with no coastline. It was taken in August on the way back from France. That big boat is our ferry which was quickly sailing away from us, taking the boys away from us. Don't worry though their Grandparents were on the boat with them. I had somehow managed to loose our passports on the way to the terminal so they wouldn't let us on the boat. We spent ages looking through everything and searching the car to find them but we couldn't. The nice French people phoned up the UK and then let us on the next boat home where we got through customs in this country without having to show any ID !! Sort of makes you feel safe and secure knowing that security has been stepped up with the threat of terrorists doesn't it. Anyway we got home and started emptying the car and found both passports in the back of the car in the foot well. We still can't understand how we missed them as 4 adults searched there in France at least 2 times each and didn't find them - strange.

We have an escapee in the house running loose somewhere in the form of a tail less lizard. We have 6 small lizards in one vivarium who have lived happily together for 2 years now until "Spikey" decided to become a bully. Poor "Sticky" (yes, we are genuinely that bad at pet names) got in the line of fire one day and lost his tail. I think this was the last straw for Sticky and he made a bid for freedom last night, when Pete opened the door he used his arm as a spring board and headed under the sofa. Trouble is he is that bloody fast we can't catch him. Matt's idea was to tip crickets all over the floor and wait for him to come out, yeah really clever Matt the crickets won't go into the dark under the sofa will they! Pete's idea is not much better as he wants to leave it there until Twig finds it and eats it, very caring I must say. Kyle didn't have an opinion as he was too busy talking to Vicky on MSN again. So I will probably be spending most of today on my hands and knees with a torch trying to catch a tail less lizard as that is the only idea I can come up with. It's amazing how they keep wanting pets but then I am left to deal with them.

Well on to today's HS:MS prompt is almost. All I could think of was the horrible bananas that are sitting waiting to be frozen or made into banana bread. So here they are almost brown, almost dead, almost frozen or almost baked, take your pick.
Now I have all my Christmas presents sorted out (they arrived 20 minutes ago) I am going to tackle Christmas cards today - just don't tell SuzyB as she thinks I'm washing my hair so shhhhhh. Hopefully I will have something to show tomorrow.

A nice surprise dropped through the letterbox this morning in the form of an interim school report from Matthew. The last one was dire, very dire so he was
How cool is that? I like stretchy skin man myself, Pete's looking forward to the scantily clad females - typical. He'll certainly get an eyeful as I booked us front row seats this morning.

I eventually managed to get a picture of myself that I sort of didn't mind. Woke up this morning in one of those moods when nothing is right so I hate my hair today and NEED to have it longer again. My hips look huge today too, and my bum, I don't like my top as my boobs are too big, my ear sticks out - I hate days when I feel like this! Going to wash my hair now to see if it makes one jot of difference to how I feel.

The shelves are some pieces of slate that we found and put up there. In the summer we put candles on the shelves but at the moment this little guy is the only thing living on them.
Well I went and got pampered yesterday afternoon and ended up having all my hair chopped off. It's something I have been thinking about for a while now and I am so glad I have done it. I washed my hair this morning and it took seconds to dry and it didn't even need styling, how fantastic is that!! I'm sure it will take a while to get used to as I have not had short hair for over 12 years now but so far I love it. I might even take part in the SPS tomorrow.
