Its my birthday- and I have been spending lots of money in on-line shops for stash!!!
Hmmmm there are 2 things I want but I dont know which to go for- A bind it all or a big shot!!! which one???? I have a tag a long , but the big shot will cut through thicker materials hhmmmmmm, and the bind it all will be so cool hmmmmm dilemma!!!
I have had some cool pressies today- 2 dvds- becoming Jane and Mansfield park- I just love period style drama films- ohhh did anyone watch fanny hill on bbc4 Raunchy or what!! I had to close the living room door incase any of the boys came down!!!- It was good though!!
I had a bottle of Leau d issey- love this perfume!! A memory card reader- I have wanted one of these for ages!! A digital photography book - I am really loving photography atm , and a design basics book - its for graphic designers but there are a lot of cross overs in there which could be related to scrapbooking!!! A wooden coffin with a ghost drawn on it!!! (calann has been doing some wood work, and made this for me to hang on the wall- it even has a hook!!!) oh and not forgetting my green and blacks chocolates!!
I have a hectic day ahead I am looking after my friends 3 boys so the will be 6 boys in my house ages ranging from 2-10 OMG lets see how that pans out!!!! Anyway have a good day!!

This was Calann by the entrance posing for me and for once he has a normal look on his face rather than his normal cheesy grin!!!Evan did his normal grumpy stropy toddler thang!!! and kept sulking at every opportunity.
I saw such lovely colours thereincluding this sand box which I photographed whilst everyone was kinda looking at me as if to say 'WHY'!!- But I am sure that you will appreciate it!!
I could have taken hundreds of photo yesterday but I ran out of memorycard.

Evan is so much better now and even slept through the night!!! He is definately more perky now and I took him to cresh this morning which he really enjoyed although he is very tired now!!
Noodles (my lil kitten) has got his last jabs today, so at lastt he will be able to go out soon- he has desperately been trying to escape lately!! I am a little concerned about him though as I have found a lump on his back- Going to ask the vet to check it out for us today!! I hope he is ok- even if he is a devil cat - I now have to sit with a water spray next to me so he doesnt bite me!!!
Anyway Mandy from scrapstudio brought my yummy DT kit last night- If you havent had any of these kits- You must try them Mandy really has a flair for putting a scrumdiddlyumtious kit together- I have even done 1 LO this morning - thats good for me!!
