Happy birthday!


Well I have just noticed I have achieved my February photo challenge, I managed to post everyday for the month of February, I’m a little chuffed with myself. Shining chuffty badge as we speak!

The picture is of my baby boy who is eighteen today, so eighteen years ago I gave birth, how weird is that! I now have two adult sons! Bloody hell, excuse me, but where did that time go?

It seems only yesterday that at the age of three he was having a birthday party dressed as Woody, having a tantrum every time he didn’t win a game, and me saying he would never have a party again…..and I don’t think he has actually… Except tonight!

Only yesterday when I was dropping him at primary school, only yesterday watching him play Willy Wonka in a primary school performance, only yesterday his first day at secondary school. Where has the time gone?, I don’t feel any older, I just feel like I did then. But I must admit I am looking forward to the plans ahead, gap years in Canada, university etc!

Now as I speak I am at my MIL house while I have left him to have a house party…. Do you think I will have a house to go back to tomorrow? X


Happy Birthday Queenie!


As you might have guessed already it was my birthday yesterday! And for my birthday I got a new camera. Which I am very excited about. This is the first camera that is all mine, no hand me downs or other peoples rejects! So now apart from blogging OHs lovely pictures, I can post ones that I have took. They won’t be as good, but it will give you a better idea of what happens in my day.

So we went to Plymouth for the day, down at the barbican. I like going there because it is by the sea , it has lovely shops, I like the aquarium, and most importantly it has lots of boats! After picking up my camera, we went for lunch as you see above! My ‘teacher’ look with my specs!


This is the very first picture taken with the new camera!


Now to try out all the different settings!


We went on a boat ride after lunch. So more playing around with the different settings, and trying to be a bit arty farty!


Below is the boat OH brought me for my birthday……..I wish!



Plymouth Hoe looks great from the water!







Had a lovely day! Thanks for dropping by! X
