Mummy's Day

I LOVE Mother's Day - a chance to spend the day with my gorgeous kids!!

Breakfast and pressies in bed, and then as Alex is now a fully initiated Beaver, I took him to Church Parade and met up with Mum and we both got a lovely posy of flowers..

Mum then came home with us for a yummy roast dinner (that I cooked) and in the afternoon we all went to see Lee's Mummy (who had only recently hurt herself falling down the stairs)!!

Thank you so much for being 3 wonderful Childeren! (Most of the time)!!

21 plus a few years...

Well, another year has gone by and I'm another year older - pushing 40 now as one of my "friends" told me last Tuesday....

I had a really lovely day. The boys including Lee (and Cassie) spoilt me rotten with cards and pressies including a brill hand painted picture of Edward Cullan and Bella Swan (Twilight for those not in the know) CSI for the PC - I get to be a forensic specialist and solve crimes - how cool is that?!, DVD's and I'd already had my main pressie of tickets to go and see the FANTASTIC Dirty Dancing stage show up in London. That, however was not all, as Lee took me out on Saturday and bought me a Pandora braclet from Niche the jewellers in Leigh. As I also had some money for my birthday, I bought two beads and a spacer for it - I also have a wish list set up there if anyone is stuck for a pressie for me!!!!

Mum got me so fabby scrapping stuff including the album I wanted, and some brill slipper boots - in the hope I don't fall down any more stairs wearing my socks!!!

My friends also did me proud with vouchers, books, smellies etc etc and Rachel even took me out for breakfast the following day - yummy!!

Finally, we all (including the kids) went out to dinner at the Bell for an early bird carvery.

A very enjoyable day to say the least.

Thank you to everyone!!!!

Alice in Wonderland

Last Friday, Blenheim Primary school in conjunction with World Book Day had the theme of Alice in Wonderland ending with a Mad Hatter's Tea party in the afternoon.

I was so impressed with the amount of effort that all the parents put in to creating their kids outfits - they all looked really good! The teachers also joined in the fun and dressed up too which always makes all the difference!

Nicholas went as the Mad Hatter....

I just love dressing up days!!!
