It’s time for Friday Photo Time, apologies for missing last week, it was very busy with hospital appointments here. There is a great deal to share this week as it was my 31st on Tuesday.
If you have never taken part in Friday Photo Time or are unsure as to what its all about, go take a read here 1st, do come back and have some fun.
Part 1 is Flashback Friday, it’s a popular idea on Instagram, basically you share a picture from the past.
I have shown you below a picture of me blowing out my birthday candles in 2007.

For Part 2 – Please find all the pictures from my phone this past 7 days, as I said it’s been busy with Birthday Party/Birthday celebrations, putting the Xmas Dec’s up and working at home on Fridays.

If you feel like taking part don’t forget to link up below so I can come check it out, you can take part with either part or both, no strict rules here.

>Drippy Happiness – Week 25

>Tara set The Gallery’s Week 25 Challenge.

Yes, this week’s theme is: One Day in August
Just like the Blip journals, I want you all to take a photo on the same day – OOOOO!
I’m trusting you to be honest here (as I often say to my children!)
So, on Sunday, August 29 (Bank Holiday Sunday if you’re here in the UK) I want you to take a photo. Of anything, doesn’t matter, you just have to take it on that day.
And you don’t even need to use your camera: Take it on your phone while you’re out and about?

I knew this would be a great challenge for me, I try to take a picture a day anyway, as I do a 365 challenge over on Flickr and when I saw it was the Sunday I knew I would be ok.

Sunday was a fun day for us as it was my little cousins 2nd Birthday Party.

So it was only fitting I choose a picture of the gorgeous little Toby.

Doesn’t he look gorgeous, he has a love of Watermelon so here he is Drippy face and all.

Don’t forget to go check out the other entries this week, I am really enjoying my Gallery Challenges, its never to late to join.

My that sounds a bit dramatic doesn’t it, well its not really.

I know one of my promises was this year to be a better blogger, but so far I do not seem to be succeeding, I mean its one day shy of a week since my last post, but in all fairness I do have a viable excuse.
I shall list them so you feel sorry for me LOL.
1. My mom is really poorly at the mo, with a terrible viral infection that has lowered her immune system, so I have been trying to help her when I can, which apologies Mom has not been enough – bad daughter.
2. I work for my family as some of you may know, well we aren’t a large company but have enough work in our office for 6 people at the mo we are down to 3 1/2 and guess who has taken all the extra yes that’s right me, so I am not getting home till well after 6.30pm (with my 45 min drive) and by the time I do dinner and the chores I can not seem to get the energy to do anything exciting in my craft room, which frankly is getting me down.
3. I am also still poorly myself, as most of you know, I have whinged about having an infection since begin of December and it has still not left my little body, even though I am vit C full and had anti biotic.

So all in all there are my excuses, I have included below some piccy’s of Kieron’s 2nd dinner the other night, which because of poorly Mom I helped her cook (although she did way too much and then got very ill again) but at least she made a very scrummy Banana/Chocolate Cake. Kier got 3 original 1960/70’s tweed jackets from my Ma and her squeeze which are just totally vintage awesome and I am super jealous.

Well as I said nothing special but just to let you all know, I do want to be a good blogger and hopefully next week I will have something better to show you.

Love to all

P.S. Hey Blogger Babes who is this going too, watch your mailboxes.

>Good Morning Blogey Peeps

Hope everyone is well this morning, I am at work busily working away, well and spending a spare 5 typing to you guys and girlz.

Today is the 16th January, 21 years ago my Baby Bro Kieron or Max as I call him was born, I have very fond memories of his birth, we were all at home (well minis dad at work of course) keeping wrapped up as we were having a major snow storm, I lived in a very tiny village with roads as wide only as a car over an hour to the nearest hospital, I remember my Mom went into labour and it took over an hour to get the Ambulance anywhere near our home, I remember the poor paramedics having to carry my Mom in the snow up a hill as they couldn’t get the ambulance near our home, I remember my Mom’s best friend and her 3 daughters walking over 4 miles in the snow just so she could be my Mom’s birthing partner as my Dad didn’t think he would make it (he did) it was so incredible. Kieron was the last of four but the first sibling I remember really as a baby as there is just over 6 years between us. Kieron and I are close, he was very ill when he was little and didn’t speak till he was nearly 4, but I always knew what he wanted. Today he is 21 and I can’t really believe it, with age he has certainly learnt to talk and talk, he has become sarcastic and dry but he has always been there for me and I know he always will.

It was very fitting then that my Dad as a surprise took us to London shopping for Kier’s 21st Birthday on Sunday, but the most fitting part, my dad took us to the Icebar in London, its an amazing place, the whole bar is made of Ice, walls,seats,bar, glasses just everything, it was totally amazing experience. (piccy’s below) we drunk quite a few vodka cocktails and spent the designated 40 minutes having an immense amount of fun, this has made me definite that one day I will stay in an Ice palace.

So Happy Birthday Maxi, I know you will have a fantastic day and evening as a superhero (fancy dress for his birthday) make sure you take lots of piccy’s with your camera.

On another note of COOLNESS, one of my number 1 blogger babes Laura of Katydiddy sent me a gorgeous package of goodies.

Laura is just a fantastic artist and when I went by her blog the other day she had drawn the most amazing Russian Dolls, well knowing I can not stop myself when it comes to these little cuties, I ordered a set of the cards straight away without haste, when the packaged arrived yesterday I could not stop jumping around cause whimsical artist extraordinaire had also included a beautiful Cupcake Plaque that I had been drooling over for ages.

I apologise for the picture quality but I took them in a hurry to show you, they are just so scrummy, please check out her blog and shop you will not be disappointed.

Anywho my mammoth post has now probably bored you to tears, so again I say thanks to Laura and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kier.
