I realise it's been two weeks since my last post, but I do have a valid excuse for being a bad blogger, we have been away camping in Derbyshire.
Oh how I would love to share with you beautiful pictures of the rolling hills, streams, sheep in the fields and the children enjoying the outdoor life, but in all the excitement of trying to squeeze everything into the car, the camera was forgotten.
So all I have to show is a very grainy picture of the bunting that was strung between mine and my friends tent, I must admit it did look very pretty flapping about in the sunshine, my terrible picture does it no justice. My friend loved it so much that when we were packing up to go home, I gave it to her to hang in her conservatory, much to her husbands delight !!
Dylan decided to try is hand at sign language whilst we were away, as my friends daughter Kristin is disabled and uses this form of communication most of the time. We were having great fun learning and trying to remember the signs, until Kristin's dad decided to show Dylan the sign for BULLS**T, from then on every grainy mobile photo that was taken of Dylan he showed us his new found skill....
....typical boy !!!
It was also my 35th birthday whilst we were camping, and I received some fantastic gifts from the hubby and my best friend.
Now my hubby is not usually that great at gift buying and doesn't always get it right, this year I'd give him 8/10 for effort.
He's obviously jumped on the Cath Kidston bandwagon and tried to play it safe....
....He's done well hasn't he ? Some pretty cake tins, a gorgeous phone case and a much needed pair of scissors. Then I got to my last gift, something small, jewelry perhaps ? No it was this......
...a dog badge !!!!
I must admit it is cute and I did wear it all day of my birthday.
I also got some great gifts off my friend including these books..
......dogs again !!
Such a funny book, not sure I will make anything out of it, but great to look at, this is my favourite picture...
How scary are that mans eyes ?
I have one birthday gift that still has not arrived, and it's driving me mad waiting for it, as Amazon has marked it dispatched, any day now I shall have this..
Hopefully on my next post I will have some crochet to show you, maybe from this book.
Nearly forgot a big thank you to Ashley from the beautiful blog Country Rose for my award.
I promise to pass this on to some other deserving blogs in my next rambling post.
Speak soon xx
