John's 30th Birthday
...... yeah right!!! At the begining of December the usual suspects (and a few others too) were invited to a candle lit sworee at John and Rays apartment for John's 30+ birthday. He has exaggerated his age for so long that he now has difficulty remember his real age. As always everything was just superb, the food, the wine, the craic :)
John as you can see is a handy with a screw driver (LMAO). He is busy assembling my birthday gift......
....which in my opinion was very appropriate gift, PMSL! Happy 30th John!
Years to come my darling daughter is going to kill me for photos like this one. Here she is before breakfast last weekend pulling the names for the Secret Santa on Craft Supplies. There is about 38 crafters signed up to SS this year, posting was last friday and parcels will be arriving in their doors over the next few days. I wonder how long they will last before being opened????
Getting Ready for Christmas
Being busy with work jet setting around the world... ok to the UK this time.. I've produced very simple Christmas cards this year. The cricle punch is a God send, that with the ric-rac, gems for a little bling and some doodles made for a quick assembly line of cards.
Getting the tree decorated this year was a sinch as it was the first year Shona had any interest in helping. She did a wonderful job, my little helper.
Shona's cousin Bayleigh has been to visit for a sleep over, actually twice in the last few weeks. The girls get on so well, its such a lovely realtionship and they have so much in common... as you can see!
Last Sunday, Shona and I headed to my sisters for lunch. It was the perfect oppurtunity to get some family snaps as part of my Christmas gifts. Here is my gorgeous sister Louise, she is soooo photogenic.
Here she is with her two handsome dudes. They growing up so fast and yet are the most gentlemanly boys I know.
Work is finished until the new year, I had loads of days to use up before 08, so next week is dedicated to shopping, crafting, small bit of cleaning and loads of chilling!!!!! :)
