I am so excited!!!
So now, I will have two spare tickets for this concert so if anyone wants to buy them..please get in contact. I dont know exactly where they will be in the auditorium at the moment (I dont need the tickets because I already have front row seating.)
I told you about how I met him last year didnt I? Well, this time I'm going to be more prepared and will organsie myself better with question and gifts for him etc and to make sure that I have some more fantastic photographs taken with him.
Watch this space for photographs in October.

I took part in the 1st ever Harlow Midnight walk for St Clares Hospice.
I took part on my motorised scooter but still had a whale of a time and felt as if I was really part of it all.
I have launched a sponsor site this morning so that if anyone would like to sponsor me they are free to do so in the easiest way possible.
If anyone would like to sponsor me, please visit.
Please dont forget to tick the gift aid box if you sare a tax payer.
Thanks in advance.

There's mud everywhere, brick dust flying about, water splashed all over the walls and half naked lads strutting around in hi-vis vests and foundry boots!! Oh, and they've scratched my car and my neighbours car too!! Hmmmm!! Not impressed!!
Now theres a diet coke add if ever I saw one!!
The company have taken on my 18year old son to work with them and he's working on our house! Cool eh?
They've been here three weeks and they've dug out the extension footings and the new size patio plus, (bless them) they've been removing the roof and walls of the garage ready for the new build but its been a lot harder than they thought it would be.
They've got through seven rotary cutter blades in just a week!!
All this rain hasnt helped much either. Poor sods, out there in all weathers.
I've kept them well fed watered with mugs of tea, sandwiches and pizzas. Apparently, the lads on other sites want to come and work here!! LOL
I'll compile a slideshow (if I can work out how to do it) of the before and after pictures.
Oh well, might get a lay in tomorow if they dont turn up at 8am as per usual!!LOL
Just keep repeating top myself.."It will be lovely when its done..it will be lovely when its done..it will be......"
Love and hugs JenniferXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

My excuse? I've got the builders in and I've been busy making them cups of tea, bacon sarnies and jugs of iced juice.
The first few days were lovely and sunny and I managed to sit down and make a couple of cards but, the past few days it has been pouring down!! I've been so busy keeping the dogs indoors wiping their feet when they have been out for a tinkle plus sweeping the floor from when I have to make trips to my once warm, cosy pretty little downstairs loo that that is now a cold, unfriendly outside 'dunnie'.
Despite the appauling weather during the latter part of the week and the many tea and snack breaks, progress has been steady and positive. The walls to the garage have been demolished and the area for the rear extension and pation area has been dug out.
Next week, the area will be marked out for the brickwork and the concrete planks of roof in the garage will be demolished. Hmm, now that will be a tad noisy so I may have to go out .....a lot!!
I'll keep you posted wit hthe progress and will post some photos of the befores and afters.

I'll show you the results of my playtime later.
It's too hot to go out into the garden ,if I can call it that. We've had to strip down the decking in preparation for the builders on monday.
Oooh, cant wait!! (that was sarcasm!! LOL)

I'm finding that I want to write posts everynight and have to resist the temptation not to bore you to tears with my pathetic ramblings!!
I had a tooth out during the week and boy has it felt strange! The dentist said that it was hanging on by a thread and once he'd numbed my jaw, it had almost 'popped' out on its own.
Apparently, because I have osteoporosis, it is not only contained in my hips and spine, it has also caused degeneration my my jaw bone! It hasnt stopped me talking drinking or eating, so no cause for immediate alarm then eh?? LOL
The dentist asked me if I wanted to keep my tooth and for one tiny moment, I paused to think of how I could use it in my crafting!! You'll be pleased to hear that I declined his offer.
I find myself, flicking my tongue in and out of the gap where once my wobbly molar once lived.
It had become progressivley wobbly over the recent months and now, it was gone.
I can only hope that because this tooth has escaped, that the others dont decide to follow suit!!
2. You are spending a whole month on a desert island for charity and you have to choose your favourite celebrity to spend the first two weeks with & your least favourite celebrity to spend the second two weeks with, who would they be & why?

3. What are your three favourite crafting products? Sakura pens, beads & Ribbons.
4 If you could invent something to do anything what do you think it would be? I've already invented something and its got a patent pending.
5. What are the last three books that you read? The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen (Horror) Does my Bum look big in this? Arrabella Wier (comedy) Dirty Girls by Katie Reynolds (rude comedy)
6. Qvc or create & Craft? Create and Craft everytime.
7. Docrafts or Dovecraft or DCWV? DCWV
8. What is your claim to fame? Erm, loads.. famous Aunties & Uncles (Alison Steadman & Alexander Morton who play Golly in that Scottish drama Monarch of the Glen. Friend of Graham Cole (pc Tony Stamp in the Bill) friend of Jade Goody, Jeff Brazier. Friend of Damon Hill, Also met, Michael Bolton, George Michael, David & Victoria Beckham, Ray Winstone, Michael Barrymore, Clif Richard, David Jason, Gareth Gates and loads of other people too numerous to mention.
Now, I believe I have to pass this onto to five other blogs but, I'm not really sure how to do this. If someone could tell me please, I'd be really grateful.

You wouldnt have realised it from the apparent lack of patriotic paraphernalia adorning the streets!!
I sent my boys out of the house today wearing their red roses in their lapels and just how many people asked them if they were going to a wedding?? Four!!!
My eldest son who has patriotism running through his stoically English veins, told them in no uncertain terms that it was St Georges day and one of them even had the gaul to ask 'who?'
What has happened to this country? We are afraid to celebrate our Saint for fear of upsetting someone from another race and yet the Irish openly celebrate St Patricks day and quite rightly so.
I have heard that a few pubs are holding St George events so atleast thats a step in the right direction..isnt it? Perhaps, people will one day learn all the words to our National Anthem instead of making up whatever fits in with the tune??
Or will this just mean that come closing time a hoard of drunken rabble will be filling our streets and disturbing our peace singing what they believe to be patriotic chants of 'Ingerland. Ingerland!'
Personally, I tend to believe the latter!!
