Tonight I have been decorating chipboard flowers ala Anita Mundt in SI, for teachers presents... I have taken pics but the light is pants so I will take more in the morning:)
Tomorrow is Oliver's 4th birthday... OMG where did that time go?!?!?! scary!!! I am so excited... all his friends have 'big boys bikes' and Oliver has a baby trike... we have told him that as he can still ride the trike he doesn't need a bike, and can have one when he is 7. We obviously have got him a bike, and it is so funky... he will be given his power rangers in the morning, then Mama and Grandad are going to surprise him by collecting him from nursery, and I will be in the playground with his new bike:) Then it is Pizza Hut for tea with a yummo chocolate button birthday cake:)
Will be back with piccies tomorrow:)

Oliver's party went well yesterday... he was the first to cry, and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th!!! He had the mardies on yesterday for some reason. I didn't get many photos as I was chatting to some of the other mum's, but here is one of Oliver with his spider man cake.
Yesterday the postie bought me the most wonderful birthday maze book from good friend Nikki. It really put a smile on my face AND brought tears to my eyes... Thank You Nikki, you're a star:)

So that's 2 LOs of me in as many days... I must say I am actually quite enjoying my BOM:)
I really enjoyed making the paper doll and the outfits... wouldn't it be fab if you could get clothes in the exact pattern as scrapping papers... I'd love a dress in the AL French Twist green, but then again I'd love a figure like the doll more...LOL!!!
Photo prompt catch up... as set by Barry the prompt is 'stationary'. I knew straight away that I had to take a piccie of my favourite pens... I just love these, the colours the shape, the case they are in, the way the write... is it possible to love a pen?

The journaling reads 'you made my heart happy again'. I saw friends at the wedding who I hadn't seen for months... the same friends who had seen me at my lowest in the months following the miscarriages and through the trauma of TTC. They commented on how happy I looked, and it is all thanks to this little fella...
Now for my latest trauma.... COLOUR BLOCKING!!!!!! Nikki's TT set last week was to use this technique.... and I just can't do it. I have spent ages pushing bits of paper and photos around and no matter where I place them, it all looks like poop!!! I am determined that I WILL complete this tomorrow, so hold on to your hats and prepare for a LO that will make you giggle at its rubbishness!!!

I think it is my turn to set the next prompt... and I have chosen 'needle'.
This morning we took Oliver for his swimming lesson and he was awarded his Teddy Bear 1 badge.... awwwwwwwww, a proud mummy moment:) I did get a strange look off the woman when I asked if I could buy another badge for his scrapbook... I guess unless you are a mad scrapper you just don't understand...LOL!!!
Last night we watched The Devil Wears Prada and drank way too much wine. So I woke up this morning feeling totally cack, and had to have a KFC wrapstar for dinner, which was YUMMO!!! So that's blown my really good week of counting points... will need to be extra extra good now until the weigh in on Tuesday.... booooooooooooo!!!

Oliver won't eat kidney beans, but he loves 'chilli' beans... LOL!!!
On the subject of Oliver and his faddy eating... we now have him eating sandwiches. They have to be cut into the shape of a dinosaur but who cares if he eats them... so my trauma over what to put in his packed lunch in September is over. The boy eats sandwiches....wooooohooooooo for cookie cutters!!!

This is the zip pull on Oliver's school jacket... it has his name on it, yet he still managed to come home with someone elses coat on!!!!

Today's prompt was set by Nikki and is 'light'. Well there isn't much natural light here today, so I went for the dining room spotlight.... a B&Q special, nothing near as fancy as Nikki's chandelier...LOL!!!

Well I have decided to share the LOs entered into the Mojo DT... I really like them, but I don't think they will be good enough to win a place, as they are not 'out there' and different iykwim?!?!? Anyway, nothing ventured nothing gained and at least I have 2 more LOs to my name... well one actually, as one is for Annie.
Todays photo prompt 'shoes', has been set by Nikki. I knew straightaway which shoes I would take a piccie of... my lush flygirl shoes... they are the bestest shoes in the world. I got these ages ago, when it was ok to spend £80 on a pair of shoes... those days are long gone now...LOL!!!
