where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!

I've overlooked my birthday :o(

Ooooops! how did this happen? it's been a whole year and 3 days since I started blogging! and I did nothing to mark the occasion, nada, zilch! :o( I always thought I was a bad blogger and this has proved my point entirely.... I really should hang my head in shame LOL
so..... I need to make amends, and have decided that I should have a give-away to mark the 100 followers event instead :o) maybe presumptious...I may never get any more followers than I have now!!! this may be tomorrow, or next week or next month, realistically I expect it will take much, much longer!!! I'm hoping it takes at least until after the weekend as I havnt actually decided WHAT it is Im going to give away, so will need a couple of days to plan something. So watch this space...... well not this exact space but one on this page coming soon!! it will look like this :o)

A year ago today was quite an eventful day as it was the day my eldest baby moved into his first home of his own. A lot has happened since then and last weekend all his possessions moved back........ into my garage! but no, he isnt moving back home, (yet) in a few days time he is setting off with his best friend for a backpacking trip around Europe!!! We wont see him for about 4 months but have planned to meet up in SW France when we (the rest of the family) go on holiday in August, fingers crossed our plans work out! He has a couple more days at home so I shall have to make a big celebratory cake to stuff him full of calories to sustain him on his travels..... well..... its a good enough excuse for a cake isnt it?
This is why I need a few days to get an idea together as same son's old sleeping quarters are now my crafting room & guest room! as soon as he is off I shall get creating for a give-away gift, until then I am going to be being all mumsy and making sure he has enough clean socks and toothpaste!

I wish you a happy blog birthday whenever it was :-)I zoomed past mine without a celebration but I do bi monthly giveaways anyway. I wish your son good travels. I am sure you will be giving him lots of hugs to go with that cake before he is off. it must be a worry to let him go off in to the world. I will keep an eye out for your treasure chest ;-)

Happy late birthday :-)

Don't tell anyone but I missed mine as well...but it is OK we've both been preoccupied with dandelions lol.

I will be announcing a late giveaway on my blog soon so watch out.

Your Son will have the time of his life...lucky him. I think all youngsters should see the world before they get tied sown with marriage, babies and mortgages so good for him.

Hmmm my verification word is undress lol
