Home at last- feel like I haven't been here at all this week (well actually that is nearly true!)
Jasmines 6th birthday was friday, and her party too. The garden was packed and the weather was good! After the party- which was a fantastic puppet show the same as last year- a few stayed behind and everyone dived in the pool to cool off! Including growed ups!
Jasmine had so many presents that she didn't finish unwrapping til gone 9pm! Her choice, we tried to persuade her to keep some for the next day but nuh-uh she wanted to tear them all open! She was chuffed to little mint balls with her charles owen riding hat I bought her, and giggled like a loon when she opened it!
Great day all round, got to see LOTS of people I hadn't seen for ages which was lovely (and at times scary!) Next big event is Cait and Willows christening in two weeks (with growed ups bouncy castle) and I get to be godmother twice over in the same day!
I'll leave you with a pic of the birthday girl...

My little man... so damn handsome! This pic is from yesterday when we celebrated Simba's 5th birthday- and my goodness that time has whizzed past! This boy is my reason for being, the thing that makes me get out of bed everyday, and the thing that makes me smile and laugh all day every day. I am so grateful that I have him in my life- and I never forget how truly blessed I am to share my life with him! *gush gush* lol

Happy birthday little man!

I just had to pop back on to add this photo of the proud parents to be! *wub*

tooooo hot!

to eat, sleep, sit, stand, lie, move...
but had a fab time in J's swimming pool fully clothed- really folks this is THE way to get cool!

Lots of stuff been happening but the main excitement is that my wonderful Amy is having another baby girl! I am so chuffed! I am so bloody excited and december seems way too far away! 20 weeks and counting!
anyway- must get back to my rocket ice lolly!
have fun and stay cool -x-

new schuz...

and pretty toenails make me happy.

particularly when they are bargain shoes and girly home pedicures! White shoes- £6.99 from disney store shoes £5.39 from a sport shop of all places!

Another thing that makes me happy...

bizarre, inane, wacky childhood oddness antics! Don't ya just love jasmine's 'do!
She had a fab time making a bubble souffle...and random big bubble hairdo's!
Love that girl!

soooooooooo much! Simba that is- just look at him- how could I not love him?! I can honestly say I would die before I let anyone hurt him. So- we had another photo shoot last week- and this is one of the corkers we got back. The hugest pic is just stunning- as they all are of course- and this one doesn't have grey shadows on it irl!
Simba was such a good boy bless him, he even went and sat on the photographer- he has never done that before, and she was fabulous...quick to shoot, and had a real flair for natural pics- which is what I love! Should add that this image is copyright olan mills, so no stealing!

Feeling generally pissed off today. I am hot. I have hayfever from hell. I am hot. I am fed up. Did I mention I am hot? Poor animals are suffering :( Went out to pets at home this evening- which I loathe- but got a fab creation called the chin- chiller. Essentially just a piece of marble, but you can pop it in the fridge/freezer, and voila! The idea is that chinchillas/other small furry critters can lie on it to cool down, Giz seems to like it :) Also bought a fan that clips onto cages, so will use that on Giz in the day and Simba in the evening when he is in his cage. It is quiet too so great for dogs if they are crated. Ice cubes in their water, a bottle of water freezing to put in front of the fan tomorrow, thanks for that Ali ;)

Lots of parcels this week too- all scrap related of course- poor postie got an eyeful today- I was in the shower when he rang the doorbell! LOL! Mandy at modern scrapbooking has a real eye for coordination! YUMMERS- thanks chick!
Anyhoodle, just updating cos I won't have time the to the stables with Jazzy J, hoping to get some more jumps out of her! (armed with camera of course!)
Lotsa love peeps!
