Party Party......

blogged by me domestic goddess On 11/05/2007 12:16:00 PM
Well not for me, but the girls have had too many parties to count this week!!!, hence the lack of blogging. Its been a strange old couple of days. My emotions have gone from pure joy, to utter despair in a few minutes, lol.
We have had a very busy social week, and Peter has been on nights and i have been rushed of my feet with Scrapping Angels, Pencil lines and DT work, whilst squeezing in being a mum, a wife and just plain old me!!! Its a tough job!

Before my epic post, heres my Pencil Lines layout for this week. Love my layout,
I used the 2 Jills customer apprecitaion kit
Felt Flowers for Clever Cut
Heidi Swapp Bling
Hambly rubons
Please go check out the site this week as we have 2 new DT members joining us . Its has been months of waiting it feels, but at last these 2 talented ladies are here now.
And here is a teaser of one of my classes for this weekends Scrapping Angels workshop!

As you know Wednesday was busy with Halloween parties, Thursday i believe was a night off, but cant remember now!. Friday we headed off to the village (Buckden) bonfire and firework evening. It was fantastic! Izzy was dressed for a rave!!!! seriously, lol. She just bopped her heart out whilst bumping into lots of her Friends. Lilly, well she is a complete nutter as a lot of my readers know! She found a nice quiet spot (not!) by the speaker and danced, danced, and danced until the lights went out and the plug was pulled. Honestly this was a bonfire party, and the fireworks were brilliant, but the highlight was watching Lilly doing some serious Justin Timberlake moves to an audience!!!! Don't you just love her.....

Saturday both the girls had parties to attend and i was completely beat, but the show must go on, so I was taxi for the day. Peter was working nights and I crashed in front of the sofa with the girls to some X Factor. Sunday I completed some DT works and then we headed of to Sues for a Halloween party. Lots of fun, wrapping Lilly up as a Mummy with a roll of Andrex, hunting for sweets in a bowl of cold spaghetti whilst blindfolded, many photos later and then all piled in the car for the return journey. Sounds simple enough doesn't it, aha but alot happened prior to Sues party.

Exhibit A

Yes this is large clumps of hair from both of my children's head. Why??? you ask, well I asked Izzy and Lilly exactly the same question, and the answers were..
Me : Girls, where did you get the scissors
Izzy : I don't Know
Lilly : Izzy got them form your office mummy, honest she did
Me: Girls, why did you cut each others hair
Izzy : I don't know
Lilly: Izzy cut mine and then told me to cut her

Then we have Izzy covered in what only looks like my mascara put on very badly!, so once again I questioned her
Me: Izzy have you got mascara on
Izzy : No
Lilly: yes she has mummy, she got it from your office
Me: Izzy don't lie to me, is that my mascara on your face
Izzy: It fell on the floor and must have jumped into my pocket
So we head of to the party, we head home, we run a bath, we have a bath, Lilly has a "I have done something i shouldn't have " grin on her face. So again I ask questions, and this time Izzy is quick to answer.... " mummy , Lilly has been shaving her armpits!"
Eventually girls are into bed, peter has another night shift and I head for the comfort of the sofa. Time 8.30pm
10.10pm, Izzy appears next to me, " Mummy I think its time to go to bed, I have turned all the lights off"
and my day ends with a smile on my face, as my 7 year old daughter takes me to bed, and i didn't even question why she was up at 10.10pm on a Sunday night!!!!!

Well done if you got this far, hope your weekend was not as eventful as mine

    I don't know how you kept calm with the hair situation! We need to keep your girls and my son apart. He gets into everything too! He's done the bald patch with the hair-clippers, shaved an eyebrow - hasn't shaved his 'pits yet - but he did unscrew the hinges to our bedroom door!

    Hope you have a great week, Anna. Your post brought a smile to my face :)
