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.


Welcome to the Jungle

Grayson had his 1st birthday on the 4th Jan, but cause of many busy appointments and him being poorly his party was not until the 30th.

Grayson had very little kiddo’s at his party and I was strapped for time so my Dad asked his friend who owns a local family Pub if they could do the party for us, to be honest this was the best option as I did not have to cater and it was mainly adults anyway.
So I thought I would share just a few pictures of the event, to be honest Ash and I did not get to take many pictures but my family are all going to send me theirs.
I also got to complete item 63 on my Day Zero 101 list, which was to make Grayson’s 1st cake, my Mom helped me just a little but I must say for someone who has never made a decorative cake I was quite pleased.

Animal Print Cupcakes

Quickly made Goodie Bags for the kiddies, filled with Jungle Themed items

The little Kids enjoyed the cake

And even Uncle Max made the party

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.
