The boiler story is war and peace all on its own! I have now not got it running 24/7 it dows switch off at night but that was after disconnecting a piece of electronic equipement that is to save how much oil you burn! The bit I dont understand is that although the original boiler was leaking and we were getting all steamy in the boiler house at least the fuel saver and old programmer were working together fine, now we have had a new programmer, new boiler he has had to disconnect the fuel saver and maintains there is not a modern equivalent as new boilers dont need it, but having used 3/4 of a tank in summer months I am finding it all rather hard to believe. He has left twice saying we need an electrical expert bringing in to check it over but never appears with one! I cant tell him whether it is working properly or not as we have had coldish weather so heating should cut in I wont be able to properly tell if it is working or not until we get some hot days again and it still cuts in or not as the case may be! I still have Mum walking in saying why are the radiators on or off as the case maybe!!! All I say is cause that is what the thermostats are telling it to do!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which does not make me very popular cause I dint have a different instant answer. I think I aught to do a course in plumbing!!

Dom is away on annual army cadet camp, first time he has been and first time he has been away from home for more than 2 nights. It was open day on Friday so I drove up to Queen Elizabth Barracks with Amber and another Mum and daughter, we thought we might as well go in one vehicle. I was really surprised when we got there, there are 3 company's there and Dom is in C company and C company is made up of five detachments Belper (Dom's group) Ilkeston Ripley Long Eaton and Ashbourne well in the introduction the head man said thanks for so many people turning out he had never seen the room so full, now bear in mind there was over 100 cadets in C Company there, there was actually 9 relatives - all from Belper Detachment!!!!! Not one other parent, carer, relative had gone, There was Amber and I for Dom, Gail and Maddy for Max (a friend Dom had introduced to cadets), Gran and Grandad for Callum ( a friend Dom joined with and his Mum could not get the day off work and she is a single parent so her Mum and Dad went and it was there 29th wedding anniversary!), then there was a Mum for one other boy who has joined since Dom has and another Mum and Dad for a similar situation. SO actually there were only 5 cadets whose family had shown any interest in what they did. There was a programme for the day but the head of C company asked us if we were on any time limit and we said no so instead of the 'scheduled programme' he took us out into the field where the cadets were on their final day of being out of camp and we had lunch with the cadets, the Major after dropping us off with some officers went to Tesco and bought the 9 of us sandwiches and drinks and grapes and then we watched the cadets do their stuff and clean their weapons. Then we got a lift back to camp and a tour of the camp by which time the cadets walked back to the back gate and waiting at the back gate was the band and the band played and the cadets 100+ marched into the camp, it was a fab site and I videoed it for prosterity! I guess Dom is a bit homesick though he would not admit it as he never hugs me these days it isnt cool!!!!!!!! But he took two paces to go and get showered and said bye to me for me to set off home and then turned round walked back to me and gave me a hug and then set off again to do what he needed to do. Then yesterday I got about 20 texts from him and I have had about 10 today including pics, he has been on a 14 mile bike ride today!! Tomorrow he gets taken to Leeds armouries in the morning and eden camp in the afternoon as part of annual camp has to have a cultural day. Then Tuesday he is training in camp and I think they might have medal badges ceremony and on Wednesday he comes back home. I do miss him! I think even Amber is missing him although they love arguing and disagreeing and winding each other up. We have been warned the first 48 hours they are likely to sleep the clock round as they will be so exhausted and then they will be very down because they have suddenly lost the companionship of 100+ others morning noon and night that they have go accustomed to - Dom doesn't believe that bit so time will tell.

Mamb is getting very fractious as she awaits her results and this year they are one week late!! They should have been 18th and they are now 25th and Amber and I had been continually told it would be 18th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It certainly does not leave much time to sort anythign if she does not get the grades she requires to enter 6th form. as term starts on 5th!!! All she keeps asking is are you sure that school have done what they had to about notifying why she was in hospital and missed exams and my answer is I doint know I was told they were doing it and I wrote the letter they asked for but nobody has confirmed to me that they have done the necessary or not so we can only assume they have - (fingers crossed they did, else sparks will fly).
Must dash Dragons Den is just starting and I do love that program.
Hope everybody well and look forward to hearing from others more.

Hi liz fingers crossed for Amber

Pam I have been able to get into the craft room for a couple of months now at first it would not cut but now it dose but all the carts are not right

The snow friends cart no mater what doze you select they are bigger than the mat I tried turning it own to 2 inchs and it was just the same size not tried all the carts yet

The last time I tried to cut with my expression it told me I had to update the firmware on the expression and when I did that it all te lights stayed on and I coul odo anything I need up phoning the USA to get it fixed they told me to update it with design studio and that fixed it but craft room still tells me I need to update it but I am not going to try again just yet
I have used it to print and cut with my imagine that works fine but sone of the carts will not work

Just the three of us again what is every one doing

Love the card, it hardly seems a year since she was born!

How do you get on with your imagine, I still have mixed views over it and was quite horrified at the cost of new mats when I was on some site or other.

Not had a look at craft room yet.

Hi Liz and Sandra,

I am here but have been rather pre-occupied in looking for my Gypsy which
I have obviously put in a safe place when the Family were here but for the life of me I cannot remember where I have put it!!

Liz, sorry to her you are still having trouble with your boiler. Dom sounds as though he is having a good time. I believe the "a"level results are out this week.

Sandra, I love you card, where has the last year gone!! How is your Husband getting on? I am going to Preston tomorrow to do a course with Anne-Marie and was there last Sunday doing a Circle Scissor course with Mel.

Hi Pam Sounds like you are busy and that safe place is always disasterous as you can never remember where it is only where it isnt!

Dom seems to be having a good time but I am looking forward to him being back home although most weekend in September he has things to do which means Mum has things to do!

Never get time to go on courses and most of them are too far away for me to even consider.

I hvae given in on the boiler 26 outside and the heating was on at home !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So my ears got burnt when I got back in by my Mum!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let us know what you do Pam and some piccy's please!

Dom just text me he is now marksman so he has a shooting badge to be sewn on but medals dont get given til tomorrow before they leave so he thinks he might have a tug of war one but tomorrow will tell!

Hope you find your G soon Pam. I am adopting the principle of dont put away safe cause once you have it is lost for ions!

Getting guys ready for back to school, assuming Amber will get her grades to get into 6th form so yesterday including my discount I spent £267 on art equipment that they both need!!!!!!! Then there was the bags ans shoes another £150 then another £20 on pencil cases etc and still got uniform to go yet! God help those that cant afford these things and the Art stuff is only the beginning of new term basics and then they are none stop extras for 2 years.

Dee, I have the Grand calibur and love it, the cheapest I have seen other than ebay is Oyster Stamps, I think theirs is around £80 with free P&P (I think) I will let you have my mobile no. when I hear from you. Have a nice holiday and hope you find some good weather.

Hi Pam What makes your Grand Calibur great! Do you prefer it to the cuttlebug? Is it just its size that makes it a love for you or are there other reasons?

Liz, the Grand Calibur is much easier to use especially turning the handle, you only need two plates instead of three for cutting and the best of all you can cut many more dies at one time, in fact I cut seven different ones at the same time the other day and also you do get some embossing on the first cut but if it is not enough you just put it back with the embossing plate that is provided and Creative Expressions have brought out a plate which you can use to emboss the various kinds of embossing folders on the market. When you consider you now have to buy the "C" plate for the Cuttlebug separately there is not a lot of difference in the two prices. I hope this helps.
