Had a great weekend

Just such a great birthday. Saw old friends that I should never have lost touch with – saw my best mate who I just don’t see enough of at all, spent time with my kids, drank, ate and was merry 🙂

We went over to my parents on Friday and spent the day shopping in Nottingham. Took the girls out for hours and hours – bought too much and bored them to death near enough – Rowan decided that travel sickness was required and puked on the bus as we rounded the corner into the village and we had to leave the bus stinking of sick… 😳

Sorry guys 🙄

That night Uncle Rich arrived

Uncle Rich

And the next day his girlfriend arrived…


More people arrived….


They pulled silly faces in my pictures…



We mingled and caught up… we would have drank tea but we had no teabags…


The kids mucked about…

Sang and read important cultural literature



They ate biscuits and ran around lots

Until we packed them off to bed


where they dutifully went to sleep with no issue whatsoever (ahem)


And the drinking began…


And therefore so did the silly pictures…





We went to bed at 3.50am! I fell unconscious immediately and then got up at 6.30am to feed, clothe and tend to all children 🙂

I felt virtuous 🙂

Luckily the sun came out in full force on Sunday and we sat about drinking tea, coffee and practicing make-up for the wedding…

This is said make-up artist here…..


This is what she looked like the next morning –


How is that fair?! Although to be fair – she didn’t get up until midday. I did have the right to look quite shite.

The make-up is AMAZING but I can’t post that because BN reads the blog obviously – but I can tell you to think Moulin Rouge…. think Christina’s video for Voulez Vous…. think outlandish and brave and just fooking AMAZING!

Love it.

Then ….. we sat about some more, sunbathed and waved goodbye to good friends with seeyousoons and we monged.

And then me and BN and Rich gorged on chinese takeaway, drank diet coke and …. sleeeeeeeeeeept.

I cannot believe there is only three and a half weeks to go. This time last week – it was the eve of the day of birth…. boo to 31…. and now it’s already a week later with less than 30 days to go till I do.

Then Egypt.


Married and abroad – there’s two things that always seemed a lifetime away!

    Looks like you had a great time – and no plastic body parts in sight.
    Post a pic of the make-up, password protect the post and don’t give BN the password – he’ll understand!
