Happy Birthday to meeeeeee :o)

Well, today I hit 35......and am feeling like crap someone has been jumping up and down on my chest, and I have pains in my back and earache too Must've caught a chill last night, whilst out on the town.What a old git!
We had a fab time last night, went to a lovely family run Italian restuarant in the city, then onto a pub called The Musician to see what it was like, as Phil is going to be playing a gig there in March :) Luckily for us, there was a band playing "My Generation", a tribute to The WHO. They were great...and we had plenty of beer :) Got a taxi back about 1.20am, and then I was shopping on the internet in a drunken haze at I didn't buy anything.
Got some lovely gifts though. My beautiful DH got me a sterling silver and Amber ring, which is stunning (I'll post a picture of it tomorrow), so LUSH goodies from my boys, and some money, which I am so tempted to blow on a set of Troll Beads as if I just bank it, it'll be absorbed into the household budget and I won't end up getting owt.
Had a lovely lie in this morning, was very weird not having the kids in the house. We went down to PILs mid afternoon to pick them up, and they'd helped their Nana bake a chocolate cake!!!! So I got to blow out candles and everything.... I am off to bed in a minute, but just wanted to post an entry into Blogger on my birthday :o)

This is what my children were doing at 7.30am......*grins*
Exited is not the word to describe them, I have never seen them get dressed so quick....
I love snow. It nearly always snows at this time of year, ever since I was child I can remember it being white for my birthday...going out and building a snowman on the cricket field behind my parents house :)
It would have been my little Grandma's birthday yesterday. Thinking about her alot, as she's one of my guardian angels...

I have been tagged.....

"Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 5 facts about yourself. Then choose 5 people you want to tag and list their names. Then leave a comment on their blog letting them know they’ve been tagged."

5 things about me........

  • I once sat next to Mick Hucknall on a plane, going from Manchester to Paris. It was in his curly ginger afro and braces phase....... *sigh* He was reading Viz, and frowned at me alot, as I was smoking...he was sitting in a smoking seat tho, so I felt absolved :)
  • I am 35 in 6 days....
  • Ohh.....I'll soon have a WEBSITE all of my own (hahahahaha)
  • I have a bit of a *thing* about washing being put out properly on the washing line, with co-ordinated know the kind of order I mean, all trousers together, in order of size....
  • If I ever had a little girl, her name would be Rachel Amber...

Dunno who on earth I will tag.......!

Happy New Year!!!!

Goodness me, where did that time go? The last two weeks has been quite crazy...and if I am honest I am glad its all over for another year. I do enjoy Christmas, especially the family time, but its just the whole build up to this I mean Christmas cards/paper/gifts/sdverts all popping out of the woodwork and into the shops at the end of October??? Crazy......
Its all seemingly back to normal now, if my life can be classed as *normal* hehehe..Daniel is back at school, Joel at pre-school and I am back to work knitting. I had lots of fun over Christmas knitting hats, and starting my first pair of socks!!! They are coming along great, if slowly now...will blog them when they are done :)
And, wonders will never cease.......I HAVE A WEBSITE!!!!
Just a holding page at the moment, but with the promise of so much more!!!

Alpaca Longies......

A custom pair of ribbed *dreamy* alpaca...they are a medium :D
