Bank Holiday chilling.

I love Bank Holidays... we're not doing anything today, but it is just really nice to not have to do anything or be anywhere. And of course Rob is off so I don't have to put up with ginge, whinge and whine on my own... lol!!!

Yesterday we went to an amazing Christening and 3rd birthday party. It was such a great day being with friends and meeting lots of lovely people. The kids loved it too as there was non stop entertainment from start to end. Harry loved the pony rides, even though he was a little disappointed that there were only girl ponies! The bouncy castle was a hit with Oliver and Harry, as was the magician. Drew loved stroking the pony but wouldn't go on one and was mainly just happy to walk round with his balloon and dance to Michael Jackson! Oh and wander into the kitchen and give me a heart attack when we couldn't find him!!!

This was the amazing birthday cake... from the minute we walked in Harry had his eye on it, and even though he was disappointed he couldn't have the big one he ate 4 throughout the afternoon!!! I was very disciplined and stayed away from all cake and deserts, but did have to lick some of the frosting off my fingers and it really did taste as good as it looks!!! Here is a picture of the birthday girl, Grace, blowing out the candles... she's going to be in Harry's nursery class when they start next Monday.

I wore some fab new shoes, which are very high and very gorgeous... and now I am suffering with blisters that have blisters... do we ever learn when it comes to shoes... lol!

When we got home last night everybody was shattered so it was an early night for the kids, Drew went to bed still holding his balloon, and Harry and Oliver with their magic wands. I squeezed in a little scrapping time and did this LO of Drew in the lido at Butlins. Not sure I'm really loving it, but it's done and didn't take long so it'll get filed away in my new kraft files.
I went to bed early to watch Eclipse... again!!! I love that film so much, and what better way to fall asleep thinking about tasty vamps, although I have to say I quite like Billy Burke at the moment ;)

Right, off to take advantage of the bit of sunshine we have today. Have a great BH Monday.

Edited to add this LO I whipped up this afternoon. I used this weeks Twisted sketch, the twist being 'tree'. A bit of a mix of papers from my scraps box, and I used the fab Queen Kat coffee stain stamp after being reminded I had it when Jen used it on a LO.
