Ever had a hangover…

without the alcohol? I hate that… had one of the worst nights ever sleepwise last night. My fault probably. Well some of it. A lot was Joshie. As usual.

It started off ok, I was down in the office working on my website (which I’ll be making an announcement about VERY soon), and made the mistake of going straight to bed after I’d finished. My mind was buzzing with ideas and things to do, and finally around 3am (yep, I tried to get to sleep for that long) I got up and wrote it all down. Hate that. Should’ve got the pen out at midnight.

Anyway, it made no difference as Joshie decided to wake up at the same time and was calling for me. He wanted a cuddle and bottle (yep… STILL haven’t shaken that one – I know, I know…) but he went back to bed ok. 20 mins later I was just about asleep and he wants me again. This time he wants to get up, and despite my protestations there was no reasoning with him (or ordering him to get back into bed). We had a cuddle and again, back to bed – only to be gotten up (never actually made it asleep) at 4.15am. This time he was upset as his nappy had leaked (all the damn bottles he has!! grrr – and I know, he shouldn’t be in nappies still – he’s a very strong willed child and I’m not pushing him before he’s ready)…

Sooooo, changed his nappy and the calling for me continued, in the end we sat up watching Fireman Sam until 6am when I managed to get him back into bed… for… wait for it… 10 minutes. By then the sun was coming up and I thought to hell with it, he’s got kindy this morning at least! Thank the big guy in the sky for Kindy…

So it’s 11.25am and I’ve just gotten out of bed with a massive hangover-type headache and no fabulous night-before to merit it… LOL

Today’s another dare from me day over at Embellished… this one was to create and use a flower out of something you normally wouldn’t use – I’ve used playing cards for this layout:

We’re rolling towards ‘my’ week in the Scrapbook Studio’s So You Think You Can Scrap competition… can’t wait to see what you guys make of my style! it changes constantly so it’ll keep you on your toes me thinks. By the way, the work you’ve been submitting each week has been just amazing. I didn’t expect the judging to be so difficult, I thought there’d be a couple of standouts each week that pretty much made the decision for me but I’ve been wrong. As the styles we’ve asked you to tackle have changed each week, so have the strengths in different peoples work. I hope you’re all enjoying trying new techniques and for those that haven’t already, I hope you’re finding your style!

Well my entry for the MMM competition is on it’s way to the US of A. I’m pretty proud of myself for the work I submitted, and if I don’t come anywhere at least I know I did my best. I hate not giving my best at something, bums me out… LOL Thanks also for all the words of encouragement, it’s nice to know I have a team of people behind me! LOL… must get badges… hehehehe

  1. Sounds like a rough night! I hope you’re able to head to bed early this evening, and let Steve deal with any night wakings tonight!
    The layout is very cool – and the journalling is awesome.
    To be honest, I’m a bit scared of doing “your” week in the comp, but only because I’m such a big fan of your work!

    Sounds like a fun night “NOT” lol I reckon there’s nothing worse than lack of sleep, everything becomes messy because your brains in slow mode. Hope you do well with your submission.
