Unofficial Birthday

I am so excited!!!! I have been awake since 4.30 this morning.....
I am off to the Scrapagogo weekend tomorrow for three days, two sleeps a whole weekend packed full of making, classes from the experts and also I have booked to have my pictures taken.......

The last couple of weeks have just passed by..... so whats been happening?

My weight loss remains at 1 stone 8.5lb and I know that i should be really pleased, but i was hoping to be at 2 stone. I am noticing a change in the way my clothes are fitting, i feel like MC Hammer as my trousers are just hanging off me, which to be honest is not flattering. I also feel that with my jeans on that i look like a bundle of rags all tied up in the middle, as i need my belt tight to keep them up. I have bought a new pair of jeans and some linen trousers to tie my over and i am pleased to announce that they are two sizes smaller than what i would normally buy..... (BIG HAPPY FACE). I don't want to buy too many as hopefully i will be able to go down at least another two sizes... fingers crossed.

My cousin Loise came and stayed with me on the Bank Holiday weekend and we went out so that she could get some bits for her flat. I am really lucky here in Chelmsford as there are several great home/ girlie shops that sell all those "finishing touches" that really make a difference. I am also only a 20 minute drive from Barleylands farm in Billericay that has more home shops and of course the great Sugar and Spice Scrapbook shop xxxxxxxx

I popped back to Louise's last weekend as I have had a hair cut and colour by the best hair dresser in the world.. princess Andrea. My hair is now black with some great dark pink/red slices throughout.

When I arrived at my cousins, I was met with....................

The yummy sweets and cakes below are printed on paper and that was placed at my seat to have my dinner.......and Louise cooked me pasta bake and i had chocolate dessert followed by the marsh mellow cakes. I felt like the queen as my birthday is not until Saturday this week, the 6th......
Thank you, so much Louise and Andrea I had a great time, as always and I am so pleased with my to follow xxxx

Last weekend we managed to get the Bar B Q out and Paul completed the compulsory caveman instinct and cooked up some great chicken, burgers and sausages. We were joined by our dear friends Helen and Lenny with their princess' Amelia and Niamh.
We had a great day as always, catching up and putting the world to rights. They have really stuck by us, since we lost our little girl.. Thank you xxxxx
We hope that we can get to catch up again.
Below is Niamh, pronounced Neeve. We are her proud God parents. It is so scary ti see how she is growing...... As we mentioned at the weekend it will not be long before we are planning her first birthday.
As you can see below, Amelia needed some sun cream.... as the weather was sunny......

So I am now off to get some ironing done and then I have to finish getting packed for the weekend. I also want to pop out and get a balloon to let off for Gabrielle on my birthday as I will not be at home xxxx

I am really nervous about the weekend, as I have never done anything like this before and i have never been away from Paul on my birthday since we have been together.... but i am sure that i will have a great weekend.

I am taking my camera, so watch this space, there may be a photo overload on its way.

I hope that you have a great weekend xxxxxx
