Connors Birthday

My grandson Connor is four today and we went to his Birthday party. I also had my granddaughter Angelina for the day.
This is Connor. He looks like a little bover boy as the little git darling got hold of a pair of scissors last night and cut his hair so he had bald patches lol, so his mum had to shave his hair!
Connors Birthday cake. It has a picture of him and his brother Rylee on it.
My granddaughter Angelina eating lovely trifle from Asda's lol. No wonder she would not eat her yucky baby food later!
Connor's baby sister Whitney. She isnt quite six months old and she is a whopper! The photo does not show very well how fat big she is!
Last but not least we have Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee aka my twins Joshua and Ashley.

It is going to be a long weekend for us as we have Colins Him Indoors parents and his boys coming down to stay with us for three days.  Monday is when the town is swamped by 30,000 plus bikers and we have the Jack in the Green festival. Will take lots of pictures to blog!
We didnt watch the wedding..................

Bad Nights Sleep

Had a bad night's sleep and I blame Him Indoors! Off his own back, yesterday he decided he wanted to change the bedding for something cooler. So he put satin sheets, duvet cover and pillow cases on the bed. Needless to say when I wasn't sticking to the sheets, I was slipping out of the bed! Satin bedding looks lovely, but is so impractical! I have had them for years and they have only graced the bed once or twice. The cotton ones are going back on tonight I can tell you! lol

Oh, and apparently it is hotter than Tunisia right now!

Firewalk and Drumming

We had a fabulous evening. My friend Jayne did a firewalk in aid of St Michaels Hospice. I am so proud of her and yes she did burn her feet. We couldn't get a shot of her actually walking on the embers as they had to walk across it so quick. There was around 40 people who did it. They do this particular event every two years and I have promised Jayne I will do it with her next time!

I am so very excited. Why you ask? Because Colin and I are joining a drumming club. Wait!!!!!!!!!!! Don't say BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This isnt any old drum club, have a looksey . The costumes are awesome, a complete free reign as long as it's black and red, and they play at all the major carnivals, medieval fairs, on piers, in the water lol, only requirement being you like pubs and a drink or two! Right up my alley lol. We begin in three mondays which is their practice nights, the next two mondays they are out and about drumming. They wear green on The Green Man festival. I can't wait to start going. It will do me good and get me out as I tend to live indoors and don't go out much. I can see members of my family and some friends taking the piss out of us, but I don't care cos I will be the one having fun and dressing up and raising money for charity. Oh and banging a lovely drum! Woohoo!

I have a confession......

I gave up smoking in 2004 but six months ago, I started back up on the dreaded weed. Roll ups as I can't stand packet fags and now I am having trouble giving it up. Every day I say 'I will give up tomorrow' but tomorrow never comes. I don't smoke in the house, I stand outside the back door whatever the weather. I am disapointed in myself. I was so proud of myself for giving up for so long. I am a fool to myself. I started back up as I was going through a lot of stress and illness but the smoking actually aggravates my stomach problems ( bile reflux due to the hospital ballsing up my gallbladder operation). I am not a heavy duty smoker and the first fag of the day always makes me so dizzy and feeling like shit, so why do I do it and find giving up so difficult to do?
Answers on a postcard please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woke up to a beautiful sunny day but I am not going to be able to enjoy it as we are sorting the front room out and having a declutter........also sorting the cupboard out under the stairs. It still has packed boxes from when we moved into the house in 2009! Mostly knick knacks and ornaments. Going to sort through them, see what we want to keep and then give the rest to a charity shop. So a very exciting afternoon...........NOT lol.

Garden Thoughts

I have quite a small back garden but it is nice and I like it. I have just noticed that my little apple tree has got buds on it so it won't be long before blossom arrives. I will try and remember to take a picture.
I can also so our local cemetry from our garden (which does not bother me in the slightest). I like standing at the back door of an evening and listening to the owls hooting. It's eerie and beautiful at the same time.
One of my neighbours has a black fluffy cat called smoky and he is a mighty hunter.........not content with small creatures, I often see him prowling by the house with a rabbit in his mouth.  In a way it's upsetting to see but in another, it's just nature. I still think he is a little bugger though!

I'm Back!

It's been a long time since I blogged. It's been a series of things including illness.
I now have three more beautiful grandbabies, all girls and another grandbaby on the way! I am very blessed indeed!
This is Androulla (Ulla) and Angelina (Angel) two of my grandbabies. There is 8 days between them.
I'm still reading heaps, probably more than ever......I finished Howards End by E M Forster. I stayed awake till 3 am to finish it as I was enjoying it so much. I didnt get up until nearly lunch time and neither did the twins, who are now 13. I don't know who's worse, them or me lol.
I will leave it there for now and hope to blog most days, even if it's me just rambling away with nothing special to say .
I hope everyone is having a lovely day!
