I'm so old!!!!

It was my birthday on Thursday... 21 again!!! I wish... 33, another year away from my 20s *sob*. I had a great birthday and was spoilt lots... Rob arranged a lucky dip present box, filled with polystyrene bits.... a good idea, until Harry decided to tip them everywhere... about 10 minutes after I'd hoovered up!!! I swear I am still finding bits now. My main present was new point and press camera as mine had slowed down so much it wasn't worth taking anywhere as by time it took the photo the moment had passed. So now I have a snazzy little thing which will be taken everywhere. I also got quite a few bottles of wine from various friends which has not helped at all with the weight watchers plan this week... but hey ho it was fun drinking it!
So what will my 33rd year have in store? I am determined that this year I will get to goal at ww, and continue to be more active. Recently I have been doing workout dvds and been jogging and using the outdoor gym equipment at the park with friends, I can tell a difference but there is still a long way to go....
I also plan to start a 8.5x11 scrapbook that is all about me, after being prompted by the lovely Jems to tell my story. Not sure how into this I'll get, but anything will be better than nothing, and as yet there is very little about me in my scrapbooks. So all I need to do is order a new size album and I'll give it a go...

Last night I played along with Twisted Sketch 6... this weeks twist being to use stamping. I used 2 journal stamps,a date stamp, a ledger tab stamp and a number roller thingymajig. The photo is one taken of drew with our very good friend Sarah and her children Hannah and Adam. Sarah was great when I was expecting Drew and was on call for when things kicked off.... she came to look after Oliver and Harry whilst Rob and I went to hospital. It was only right that she was the first person outside of family to hold Dinky when he came home.... and he has lots of cuddles since. I used a mix of papers to pick out colours from the photo, and although they may not 'match' I think they work well together, and I am quite happy with the LO.
I was really pleased to learn that my Bear has a bubble gun LO was chosen to win a RAK for sketch number 3... it made my day.
Right better go and put away all the ironing that I did this morning before my Sunday night jog in the rain!!!
