What's been happening in the world of me...

...well, I think it's quite safe to say that Caitlyn is now potty trained! YAY!!! I'm so proud of her! It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be - which is just as well because then I might not be dreading it so much when it comes to potty training Zach...although I've heard boys are more difficult than that right?
I've also had some big desisions to make this week which has been hard...basically I've resigned from my job to be a sahm & Caitlyn no longer goes to a childminder for 5 hours a week - boy did I feel guilty (for Caitlyn) when I phoned the childminder to tell her - i was nearly crying down the phone for goodness sake - what an idiot I am!! I'm doing all this because the childcare for 2 children costs so much over here I can't afford to work lol! I was hoping that for the sacrifice of my job we might get to move into a bigger home as hubby might be getting a bit of a promotion...but I don't think it's going to happen :0( I'm gutted. As Zach gets bigger this flat seems smaller & smaller!
Anyway onto happier news - I am now on Dreamscape Designs CT over at Digital Candy! I'm really chuffed as Stephanie's designs are AWESOME and I've already done 3 lo's using her kits which are below :)
The first is of my hubby using the kit 'Hot Mama'

I used a template by Tanyia Deskins (Tanyia's Pretty Pixels) & the author of the quote is unknown.

My second lo is a brag book page of Caitlyn. Each photo was taken in July, the top one in 2006, the middle one in 2007 & the bottom in 2008. This was using 'Boys In The Sun' by Dreamscape Designs, again using another template by Tanyia Deskins.

My third & final lo for Dreamscape Designs is for a scraplift challenge at Digital Candy. I scraplifted 'Danicing In The Rain' by Linz to create 'OMGosh!'

I will leave my post there for today - I must start posting more often so they're not so long! - Sorry! But thanks for reading xx
